More about our awesome set of ingredients
Chai seeds are recognised by many as being a super food. Their makeup in itself is super; 15-25% protein, 30–33% fats (most of which are unsaturated), 26-41% carbs and high dietary fibre of 18-30%. Plus vitamins, minerals and a high amount of antioxidants[i]. They are full of omega 3[ii] which has been linked to reducing the risk of heart disease, by reducing the harmful cholesterol and not affecting the healthy cholesterol. Its believed that most of us aren’t getting anywhere near enough omega 3 in our diets so we thought we should add even more for you by throwing some nutritious flax seed in too! Both beneficial for providing omega 3, protein and fibre[iii].
Another superfood we have added is maca, ‘a Peruvian plant of the Brassicaceae family cultivated for more than 2000 years, which grows exclusively in the central Andes between 4000 and 4500 m altitude.’[iv] Used for its medicinal properties, it has an abundance of health properties [vi]! Since we can’t get enough at super foods, baobab makes an appreance too, with more vitamin C than oranges, more potassium than bananas, more antioxidants than blueberries and more than twice the calcium level of milk.
We use almonds as a source of protein and according to studies almonds can make you less likely to snack and balance blood sugar levels[viii]. Which is always a plus if you are trying to get in to shape, or like us have a weakness for grazing. The main source of protein however comes from soy isolate, the purest form of protein, packing a 90% protein content[ix]. Soy has been found to benefit training regimes to the same level as whey as well as benefiting health like reducing bad cholesterol[xi]. That coupled with our heart healthy chia seeds is a match made in coronary heaven!
Like our fabulous brownies, we use dates to sweeten things up whilst packing in goodness at the same time. Dates contain numerous minerals like iron, potassium and magnesium. Plus selenium; important in supporting immune function. On top of this they contain B vitamins and vitamins A and K that are great for eye health and healthy skin. We add a bit of maple too for the wonderful flavour with its range of minerals, oligosaccharides, amino acids, organic acids, and phenolic compounds[xii].
