At Nutribuddy, we pride ourselves in creating high-quality products with zero compromise. Here are 5 benefits of our products.
1. All our products are vegan
There are so many benefits in consuming vegan products like ours.
Studies suggest that opting to consume more vegan products is kinder for our planet. Even switching out one meal per day for a 100% vegan meal (such as one of our shakes) can make a huge difference.
But there’s more to veganism than the environment.
Studies have found that those on a vegan diet are more likely to lose weight than those who aren’t. This suggests that vegan ingredients are more likely to aid with weight loss than non-vegan ingredients.
As well as helping to keep you in shape, there are a whole host of health benefits associated with vegan foods. You can read more about them on our guide to veganism here.
2. We do not use any major allergens
We don’t think anyone should have to miss out on the benefits of our shakes, which is exactly why we avoid using any major allergens in our products.
All our oats are certified gluten-free and the other ingredients that we use are naturally allergen-free.
If you do have an allergy however, we would always recommend double-checking the ingredient list as some small ingredients used in our shakes are packed on premises that may handle allergens. A disclaimer will be visible on those which have ingredients packed in premises that contain allergens.
3. Our formulas are 100% natural
Often a product may brag about its natural ingredients but then, as you scroll through their lengthy ingredient list, you notice a lot of complex ingredient names and have no idea what they are.
Sadly, they’re not as natural as they make out, including a host of artificial ingredients such as bulking agents, preservatives, stabilisers and even artificial sweeteners such as sucralose.
At Nutribuddy, we pride ourselves in using ZERO artificial ingredients.
Our ingredient lists are small, containing familiar favourites such as gluten-free oats and flaxseeds.
Our products are sweetened using the highest-quality stevia which comes from the stevia plant. It’s a zero calorie sweetener and some studies suggest it has some health benefits too. Score!
We also shun artificial vitamin blends, opting instead to give you vitamins and minerals from wholefoods. There are so many reasons why nutrients from wholefoods are far superior to artificial vitamin blends. You can read all about them here.
We take things a step further again and ensure that no artificial ingredients are used in the ingredients we are purchasing. Our desiccated coconut is free from sulphur dioxide and our sea salt comes without anti-caking agents which are often added.
4. Our ingredients are ethically-sourced
We’re passionate about keeping our carbon-footprint as low as possible, and about supporting ethical farming practises. That’s exactly why we take these factors into consideration when searching for ingredient suppliers.
Although we are not certified as organic (you can read all about why we are not certified organic here), we use organic ingredients where possible. Of the ingredients which are not organic, they have still been grown as naturally as possible with minimal pesticide use.
Our gluten-free oats come from farms in UK and Europe, meaning the oats don’t have to travel vast distances to get to our small factory.
Our flaxseeds are sourced from a small family-run business in UK who specialise in UK-grown flaxseeds.
All our ingredients are non-GMO.
5. We only use ingredients which are genuinely good for you
We’ve all heard that ‘natural doesn’t mean healthy’, haven’t we? And that is true! There are many natural ingredients out there that come with side effects. Just take a look at caffeine or senna leaves (a natural laxative).
We work alongside one of the UK’s leading nutritionists, Kelly, to ensure that we only include ingredients which have fantastic nutritional profiles and which even have some health benefits.
Our oats are rich in antioxidants, can promote feelings of satiety and studies suggest they can help lower cholesterol levels and assist with blood sugar.
