Studies show that nuts have a positive effect on certain natural BIOMARKERS
Nuts are among the most nutritious foods in existence – they possess a unique mixture of unsaturated fatty acids, plant-based proteins, fibre, minerals, and vitamins. In addition, they contain additional bioactive compounds such as phytosterols and phenolic antioxidants, which have a positive effect on human health. For the purpose of a healthy diet, it is recommended to reduce your consumption of animal proteins (meat, meat products, eggs) and replace them with a portion of nuts. Studies have shown that switching from animal protein to nuts, a high-energy, vegetarian protein source, supports weight loss. And there is yet another alternative: the so-called de-oiled oil flours and premium proteins. Anyone who would like to reduce their carbohydrate intake, but cannot go without bread rolls, would be well-advised to have a look at our high-quality oil flours and premium proteins. Almond protein, sesame protein, linseed flour (gold) and pumpkin seed protein are incredibly rich sources of protein and great for baking. The de-oiling process reduces the natural oil content of the flour, and the “pressed” oil is refined for further use in the processing industry. The so-called de-oiled press cake is also refined and processed further. In downstream production processes, the press cake is ground, sieved, and analysed – eventually, it is approved by quality assurance and the product is packaged. Together with our partner at the source of the nuts and seeds, we attach great importance to consistently supplying the highest-grade products, both from organic and conventional cultivation. The production facilities are audited and controlled in regular intervals. We are particularly proud of our cooperation with the GBA Laboratory Group, who have been carrying out, evaluating and eventually approving the analyses of our premium vegetable proteins such as almond protein, sesame protein, pea protein and hemp protein, for almost 3 years. We consciously leave the final approval of these high-quality premium proteins to experts in order to ensure a consistent quality for you.
