So, what is so super about superfoods?
You’ve probably already heard the buzz-word “superfoods”, you have probably even eaten quite a few of them, but do you actually know why they’re considered to be superfoods or what that actually means?
Well, we can definitely assure you that it is not just a growing trend or another fad diet that will fade away eventually… To put it simple, Superfoods are considered to be the most nutrient dense, benefit rich foods mother-nature can offer. This includes exotic superfoods, like goji berries, maca powder and acai, as well as more everyday superfoods, like spinach, brussels sprouts, oats and blueberries. The key to understanding superfoods is the concept of nutrient density, defined by the amount of nutrients you get for the calories consumed.
Macronutrients and micronutrients
To break it down for you, the nutrients in our food fall into two categories: macronutrients and micronutrients. Micronutrients are needed by the body in small amounts, and macronutrients are required in larger amounts for proper body functioning. Micronutrients - Encompass vitamins, trace minerals and organic acids, which are needed by the body in amounts generally less than 100 milligrams per day. Macronutrients - Include amino acids (protein), fats (monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, and omega fatty acids) and carbohydrates, which are required by the body in larger quantities. To stay healthy, we need a mix of both!
Minimally processed foods for a thriving body and mind
By consuming food that has been minimally processed; that is high in essential vitamins and nutrients, like Superfoods, our bodies are provided with a broad array of easily absorbable nutrients in their whole food form. We know how challenging it could be to increase the density of nutrients in our diet, and that’s exactly what has inspired us when creating INIKA Superfoods and our nutrient dense, and free from all things nasty and artificial, product range!
