WHAT'S IN A NAME? PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING! RAWSOME FROM NOW FOODS!
Now Rawsome is a highly nutritious, organic, raw, peanut and gluten-free whole food source of essential nutrition.
Our seeds are sprouted, dried and milled to increase the bioavailability and nutritional content, and to reduce anti-nutrients for better mineral absorption. The taste is slightly sweet and nutty and can easily be added to any number of foods (cooked, baked or raw). It is also the first heat stable natural food powder offering a full spectrum of essential nutrients. Vegetarians will like it too. So much nutrition is delivered in such a small serving size.
Getting proper nutrition can be difficult at any age, especially for the following targeted groups:
- picky eaters
- with a diet in highly processed food
- who lack the appetite
- individuals with greater nutritional needs
Many nutritional powders, despite impressive ingredient lists, may add very little nutritional value and reveal very low vitamin and mineral levels. Finally you have a choice to conveniently add all-natural source vitamins, minerals and plant-based nutrients to your diet without the unpleasant smell, taste and inferior absorption of synthetic multivitamin blends.
What are some benefits of sprouting?
Very simply put, sprouts offer the highest amount and quality of vitamins, minerals, proteins, fibre and enzymes per unit of calorie. Among its many nutritional claims, sprouting is shown to increase content of B vitamins, vitamin E and A. Some argue they are the most nutritious food we can eat. As sprouting or germination occurs, the seed is transformed into only essential content, while the nutritionally undesirable content is broken down, producing energy or power to change from seed to sprout. In this case, the protein or amino acid content is increased as seed becomes sprout, while the carbohydrate content is decreased or broken down to provide the seed with the energy to grow.
Sprouts are a living food, they continue to gain in vitamin and nutritional content even after they are harvested and to a certain extent when refrigerated. Compare that to store bought vegetables which start to lose nutritional content as soon as they are picked, and at times long before they arrive at the store. As an added benefit, sprouts are very easily assimilated and digested, while improving the overall efficiency of digestion. This is particularly important in the case of protein, which is often requires more work to digest. Sprouting significantly increases the protein content of many beans, while making it one of the easiest forms of protein to digest.
A study conducted on Salba®, a specific brand of Chia, found that 3.5 oz of Salba® contained as much omega 3 as 28 oz of salmon, as much calcium as 3 cups of milk, and as much iron as 5 cups of raw spinach. Chia is also gluten free, a bonus for those with gluten sensitivities who have a hard time increasing fibre consumption. All that nutrition and it's also low in calories.
Sprinkle on or add to any of your favourite foods for a nutritional boost! It's as simple as a single teaspoon to get 100% of your daily recommended Vitamins D & E and over half your daily Vitamin C, B1 and B6!
