Information about Sunflower Oil Cake: Sunflower Oil cake is a nutritious by-product of oil extraction. Sunflower Oil cake contains 35% high-quality protein with all essential amino acids. Another valuable nutrient is a dietary fiber.
Information about Potato Starch: Potato starch is made from the peeled potatoes. Being a resistant starch it doesn’t affect blood sugar levels, as your body doesn’t digest it. Your gut bacteria does.
Combined together dietary fiber from Sunflower Oil cake and resistant starch from Potato form a perfect prebiotic to feed your microbiome. Prebiotic passes through the upper digestive tract and stimulates good bacteria growth in the large intestine and colon. Additionally, prebiotic increases fermentation and the production of short-chain fatty acids like butyrate. Why is this important? Well, these acids lower the pH of our bowel, making it less hospitable for nasty pathogens and bad bacteria. Additionally, butyrate is the preferred fuel of the cells that line the colon.
Information about Sunflower Oil: Healthy, natural sunflower oil is produced from sunflower seeds. Sunflower oil is light in taste and appearance and supplies more Vitamin E than any other vegetable oil. The perfect balance of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats makes it perfect for reducing the levels of bad cholesterol. It's nutritious composition makes it one of the healthiest oils for consumption. Contains no trans fat.
Is Sunflower genetically modified (GMO)?
No. Sunflower is not a genetically modified plant (non-GMO). Europe is a large production region for sunflower and the EU will not accept GMO planting seed. The regulatory hurdles in the U.S. are insurmountable at the present time due to possible gene flow to wild sunflower. Without Europe and the U.S. there is not enough market size for the private sector to make the necessary investment in sunflower GMO (Source: National Sunflower Association).
NuTek Salt for life: Salt for Life® Sea Salt and Potassium Salt Blend has 75% less sodium vs. regular salt and replaces it with Potassium Salt, a necessary and often under-consumed nutrient, all without compromising taste.
