All of our ingredients are Non-GMO and many are Certified Organic. We are working towards using 100% organic ingredients in the future.
NOTE: Some mix productions are processed in facilities that also process wheat, dairy, legumes, and soy. Prior to production a complete clean out is performed on the production line and final analysis tests show <5ppm of gluten in our products.
'BLANCHED' ALMOND FLOUR...We use both premium, Non-GMO Blanched Almonds, grown in California. The wisdom of nature is truly astounding. To think that every small almond contains the dormant energy and life force it takes to begin to sprout and grow into a great big tree is nothing short of miraculous. All it needs is a little water and moderate temperature, and in a short few hours, it comes to life. Almonds are full of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats....the good kind of fats that stimulate the production of a hormone that makes us feel full longer. We use California grown blanched almonds, which are steam treated to cleanse and remove the skins. This also removes the anti-nutrients and makes it easier for you to digest and absorb the healthy nutrients almonds offer. They are not treated with chemicals.
ORGANIC COCONUT FLOUR...Coconuts are full of vitamins, minerals, and many trace minerals. High in fiber with potent antimicrobial and antiviral qualities, coconut even helps strengthen our immune system. It's approximately 60 percent fat, and its main fat, lauric acid, is a medium chain fatty acid that is quickly converted to energy by our liver, speeding up our metabolism and promoting a lean body. Coconut waters mineral and electrolyte composition is so similar to human blood plasma that the sterile water from a freshly cracked coconut has even been used in IV form to re-hydrate an ill person, acting similar to saline solution!
ORGANIC PSYLLIUM HUSK POWDER...Used for decades as a dietary soluble fiber supplement, psyllium comes from the Plantago ovata shrub and is indigestible to humans. It can help to regulate cholesterol levels by stimulating the synthesis of bile acids and has been shown to attach to mycotoxins in the intestines and escort them out of the body. We use only the highest/cleanest quality (99% purity) and always certified organic. Psyllium is terrific for digestion!
YACON ROOT POWDER...Yacon, often referred to as a 'super food', has a prebiotic action that helps your body absorb minerals and vitamins easier. Our Yacon is non-GMO and originates from Peru.
ORGANIC INULIN ROOT POWDER...The inulin fiber we use is a natural fiber extracted from Jerusalem Artichoke root using hot water extract. Inulin is found in plant foods as a water-soluble dietary fiber and is a known prebiotic. Inulin has many health benefits, including weight management, cholesterol level control, and blood sugar support, the most important it is a prebiotic to promotion gut health. Inulin slows digestion, allowing sugar to be released more slowly. This helps keep blood sugar levels in healthy check. As a result, Inulin may play a positive role in helping control Type 2 diabetes.
IMO...(Isomalto-oligosaccharide) is a prebiotic, non-digestible carbohydrate derived from plants, usually peas or cassava. Our IMO comes from the starch of the cassava root, which is called tapioca. IMO is about 2/3 as sweet as sugar so we blend it with pure monk fruit to bring our new sweetener (S'WEEET!) up to the same sweetness as sugar. Contrary to some reports, we don't find it to cause stomach upset.
MONK FRUIT...or lo han guo, is about 250 times sweeter than sugar. It's much like stevia without an aftertaste. It comes from a vine from the gourd family and is native to China.
BAKING SODA... (sodium bicarbonate) is used as a leavening (rising agent) when combined with acidic ingredients. Its natural mineral name is nahcolite and is found dissolved in many mineral springs.
BAKING POWDER... the baking powder we use is a mixture of sodium bicarbonate, monocalcium phosphate, and organic tapioca starch. Baking powder is used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods.
CREAM OF TARTAR... is the natural dry, acidic powder left after fermenting grapes into wine. Its scientific name is potassium bitartrate, aka potassium hydrogen tartrate or tartaric acid
SEA SALT...Sea salt contains dozens of minerals and trace minerals our bodies need. Refined salt, with additives such as aluminum hydroxide, is NOT the same thing.
CAGE-FREE, PASTURE RAISED EGGS...High in protein, eggs are little powerhouses of nutrients. Proteins are a combination of amino acids. Nine of these acids are essential, which means we need to obtain them from our diet. If we’re low in or missing just one of them, our bodies cannot make the other proteins it needs. Eggs are a rich source of all nine of these amino acids.
100% CAGE-FREE LIQUID EGG WHITES...These egg whites are pasteurized and clear because they do not have any added colors unlike some brands which add beta carotene to turn the whites yellow.
ORGANIC APPLE CIDER VINEGAR...Apple Cider Vinegar is a good source of polyphenols, powerful antioxidants, as well as potassium and magnesium. It is often used as a natural preservative as the acetic acid is able to kill dangerous bacteria while promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria.
