INGREDIENTS As believers of limiting dairy and gluten in one’s diet for good health our Gluten Free Tankers tick the boxes here but also for the vegans and nut intolerant people as well being egg, honey and nut free. Teff Flour Teff is a gluten free grain from Ethiopia and packed with nutrition. This emerging ‘super food’ this fibre rich grain has a wonderful balance of amino acids making it a super source of vegetarian protein. It is also high in calcium and iron. Combine all of these benefits and it sure is a superfood for mums. Think… satiating, blood sugar balancing, energy producing and bowel supporting. Tick, tick, tick and tick and this is only the beginning! Buckwheat flour Buckwheat is not related to wheat at all. It is actually a gluten free seed and is one of the best sources of high quality, easily digestible proteins. We love buckwheat because it is rich in the bioflavonoid rutin, a very important nutrient for mum’s indeed as it assists in strengthening connecting tissue. In addition, buckwheat can help to draw excess fluid from your body (fluid retention). We all know that puffy feeling in those last few months and post baby delivery don’t we? Gluten Free Brewer’s yeast This highly nutritive yeast is naturally rich in B complex vitamins, essential for energy production and they are one of the key supportive vitamins for the nervous system. Brewers yeast also contains the blood sugar balancing nutrient chromium, perfect to help keep you running all day long and free from sugar lows. It is also packed with iron, a nutrient commonly deficient in new mums as well as the anti-oxidant selenium to help keep you young, got to love that! Brewer’s yeast has been recommended by midwives and folk health care providers for years and it is one of the most traditional galactogogues going around. Organic Rolled Quinoa Flakes This nutrient dense South American seed has had a lot of press and for good reason. Think anti-aging (antioxidants), anti-inflammatory, protein rich, gluten free, mineral (calcium, magnesium, manganese) rich, vitamin (B’s and E) rich and high in dietary fibre. Wow. Chia Seeds & Linseed meal Like flaxseeds, chia seeds are a wonderful source of omega 3 fats, fibre and calcium as well as phosphorus. We have included both which means you are getting one heck of a good dose of these beneficial nutrients. Organic Coconut oil We chose coconut oil as the perfect fat for our bikkies. It’s health benefits are what drew us to using this amazing ingredient. Did you know organic coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids which is actually a very healthy and necessary type of saturated fat. It can aid in boosting one’s metabolism, improving the health, skin and hair and general overall organ health. Using coconut oil instead of margarine or other (not so healthy) trans fats means our bikkies are dairy free and free of nasty trans fats.
