WHY GLUTEN FREE?
What is gluten? Gluten (from Latin meaning “glue”) is a protein composite found in foods processes from wheat and related grain species, including barley and rye. Gluten is a food toxin that inhibits digestion and triggers inflammation in intestines, blood and organs. Gluten intolerance is highly prevalent as 84% of people suffer from its effect. It is still an under-diagnosed condition; however awareness is on the rise. Common effects of gluten on the body are bloating, weight gain, diarrhea, constipation, mal-absorption of minerals and vitamins, fatty liver, hormonal imbalance in both men and women, hair loss, multiple skin conditions, respiratory problems, migraine and an increases risk of sports injuries.
WHY NATURAL & ORGANIC?
The term “organic” refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processes. Organic crops must be grown in safe soil, have no modifications and must remain separate from conventional products. Farmers are not allowed to use synthetic pesticides, bioengineered genes (GMOs), petroleum-based fertilizers, and sewage sludge-based fertilizers. Organic livestock must have access to the outdoors and be given organic feed. They may not be given antibiotics, growth hormones, or any animal by-products. Organic foods are higher in nutrients and are free from neuro-toxins that damage brain and nerve cells. They also reduce exposure to antibiotics and hormones that find their way into the animal and ultimately into you. Organic milk and meat are higher in omega-3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) which are heart-healthy fats that can help lower bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol.
WHY ADDITIVES, TRANS-FATS AND MSG-FREE?
MSG or mono-sodium glutamate, is a non-essential amino acid that is added to foods — most commonly Chinese and fast food — to enhance flavor by balancing and rounding the perception of other tastes. More than 75% of supermarket products contain MSG. Adverse effects linked to the regular consumption of MSG include obesity, diabetes, eye damage, headaches, fatigue, disorientation, depression, numbness, burning sensation, tingling, facial pressure and tightness, chest pain or difficulty breathing, nausea, rapid heartbeat, drowsiness and weakness. Trans fatty acids or trans fats are formed by partial hydrogenation of vegetable and marine oils or by bacterial activity in the rumen of ruminants. Their side effects include colon cancer, depression, heart disease and infertility.
WHY SUGAR FREE?
Sugar has a direct effect on weight gain | loss, does not contain nutrients and is a highly addictive drug. Sugar leads to hormone imbalances, affects emotional and mental health and weakens the immune system. We use organic coconut “jaggery” to sweeten our products. Benefits of coconut crystals include:
It is a 100% organic, minimally processes, unfiltered and unbleached natural sweetener and contains no preservatives.
It is naturally low on the Glycemic Index (GI) which has benefits for weight control and improving glucose and lipid levels in people with diabetes (type 1 and type 2)
It has a nutritional content far richer than all other commercially available sweeteners.
It is especially high in potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron and is a natural source of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C.
