Cashew Colada:


Following the principles of traditional foods, Tiger Nuts have a long history dating back to the Egyptian civilisation.  Just one serve of Morning Munch feeds you over 30% of recommended daily fibre needs – and SOooo deliciously!


The perfect pairing of summer-y banana and pineapple, creamy cashews and hydrating coconut, with the refreshing zing of ginger and sunshine-y yellow Calendula petals. Inspired by bright blue beach days with fun friends and tall cool piña colada smoothies.


Plants have power! Calendulas with their deep yellow petals are high in antioxidants and flavonoids and were used traditionally to ease stomach upset.


Suggested uses:


You’ll love this simply scrumptious blend: in milk (or mylk), topping smoothie bowls or yoghurt, or even snacking straight from the bag!


 Tiger Nutscontains resistant starch which is a prebiotic fibre that resists rapid digestion and is instead used by good bacteria in the gut for fuel energy where it is converted to short chain fatty acids, that have positive impacts on gut health. A source of iron (more than red meat), organically grown, rich in essential fatty acids, high in potassium (more than a banana), a source of magnesium, a source of phosphorus and a source of vitamin E. Also a natural appetite suppressant!


Organic Coconut flakes - A source of protein, healthy fats, dietary fibre plus vitamins and minerals. Coconut is a rich source of medium chian triglyceride that benefit cardiovascular health by increasing good cholesterol in the blood. The MCT's, particularly lauric acid, in coconut are also highly antimicrobial and can assist in killing or controlling bad bacteria and yeast in your gut (such as candida albicans). 


Activated Cashews Cashews are an abundant source of vitamins and minerals including copper, manganese, magnesium, selenium and phosphorus as well as vitamin K and several B complex vitamins. The essential fatty acid profile is cholesterol free and rich in oleic acid (the same good fat found in olive oil) that supports healthy cardiovascular system. Activation is amazing! (see FAQ #9).


Australian Golden FlaxA source of omega 3, protein and fibre these Australian golden flax seeds are rolled – a process that breaks the thick outer shell of the seed but maintains the oil membrane. This ensures the delicate omega 3 oil is protected from exterior factors such as air yet is easily digested and better absorbed once consumed. 


Organic Dried Banana (unsulphured)Banana is a source of dietary fibre, potassium and B6.


Organic Crystallised Ginger – Ginger has been used traditionally to treat digestive complaints, to relieve nausea and rheumatic and muscular disorders


Freeze Dried Australian Pineapple (unsulphured)Freeze-dried for maximum nutrient preservation and non-chemical colour retention. Pineapple is a source of the proteolytic (protein-splitting) enzyme bromelain and is a source of vitamin C


Organic Australian Carob Powder – Naturally sweet and faintly chocolatey, carob is rich in gallic acid, a tannin that has anti allergic, antiseptic and antibacterial benefits with beneficial effects on the digestion. Carob is also rich in lignans and polyphenols which are powerful antioxidants that assist in lowering cholesterol.


Organic Calendula PetalsCalendula is native to the Mediterranean and used as a medicinal herb in ancient Greek, Roman, Middle Eastern and Indian cultures.  Used as an antioxidant anti-inflammatory and to promote wound healing topically, Calendula flowers have also been used to treat gut inflammation, ulcers, and stomach upset. Calendula flower extracts have been used to stimulate digestion by increasing the production of bile and are thought to stimulate immune function

   This recipe is made with 85% Australian and Organic ingredients and love.


 


1.     Morning Munch has nutritional claims on the front, like HIGH FIBRE / IRON, LOW SODIUM, SOURCE OF MAGNESIUM / PROTEIN – can you back these up?


Definitely!  All the calculations have been vetted by a naturopath to comply with Australian food labelling laws (FSANZ).


 


2.    Is Morning Munch a clean-eating option?


TOTALLY!  It’s vegan, grain-free, Non-GMO, no preservatives, no unnatural flavours or colours, with organic / wild-crafted / Australian ingredients.  Best part? Tiger nuts are recommended for people with digestive issues! 


 


3.    How is this an ancestral food? 


Tiger Nuts were collected for consumption in West and Northern Africa for thousands of years by the Egyptian culture, though today commercial crops are grown in Spain.  Modern hunter-gatherers still consume 150g fibre daily, while Vegans eat 43g, Paleo proponents 23g, yet Omnivores only average 19g.  
Tiger Nuts are high in fibre (resistant starch = resists rapid digestion) so one serve of Morning Munch gives you 30% of recommended daily fibre needs – that’s HEAPS!  


 


4.    What does resistant starch mean?


Resistant starch does not break down to be absorbed as glucose like most starches, but travels through the small intestine to the colon where it is consumed by beneficial intestinal bacteria as fuel to proliferate.


 


5.   What are ‘’functional foods’’? 


Foods with biologically active components that are consumed for other properties than just nutritional eg. health promoting or disease prevention or symptom remediation.


 


6.   What is Paleo actually?


 A wholefood eating plan with no gluten, dairy or white sugar, from hi-fibre, good fat and preferably organic sources… basically like our grandparents ate!


 


7.   Why is Morning Munch a ‘’PEGAN’’ product (Paleo/Vegan), and do you have to follow this eating plan to enjoy it?


Globally, many people with all kinds of health issues are having tremendous success on paleo dietary plans (eg. weight release, chronic condition abatement) but are often concerned about either the environmental and/or humane impacts of meat consumption – a core principle of the paleo way.  PSF aspires to provide nutritionally dense options that are both truly vegan and strictly paleo (eg. no pseudo-grains). But just about anyone can definately enjoy these delicious blends, no matter how they eat!


 


8.    What are pseudo-grains


Many paleo products (especially cereals) include these grain-like ingredients (ie. Quinoa, amaranth, wild rice & buckwheat) that many paleo proponents argue are still inflammation causing.  Consequently, we have omitted these potential gut irritants from our recipes, substituting with high fibre, but gut friendly tiger nuts.


 


9.   What is ‘Activated’?


ACTIVATION is a process whereby nuts are soaked in water for up to 12 hours then dehydrated at low temperature to improve the nutritional profile of nuts in 2 ways. 


Nuts (along with grains, legumes and cereals) naturally contain a compound called phytic acid which binds to minerals such as zinc, iron and calcium and inhibits their absorption in the gut.


Phytic acid is reduced through the soaking process when the Enzyme phytase is ‘switched on’ which also stimulates germination of the seed.  


Additionally, protease activity is increased breaking down proteins into their simpler constituent amino acids, making them more readily digestible and bioavailable.


As a result other anti-nutritional proteins can also be denatured at this time. Some studies have also shown protein quality is improved as limiting amino acids are liberated.


Studies have also shown increases in many other positive phytochemicals during the germination process (including vitamins, essential fatty acids and crude fibre). 


 


10.    Are the sugar and carbohydrates in Morning Munch ‘’good’’ or ‘’bad’’? 


The carbs are the good kind, in the form of fibre and resistant starch that slow digestion and glycaemic response as well as keeping you feeling fuller for longer. The other sugars are naturally occurring in the small amount of dried fruit we have added and within the tiger nuts themselves.


 


11.     Are the Fats within Morning Munch all the “good kind” you hear so much about??


Absolutely!  We all know some of the best ‘’good fats’’ come from Morning Munch’s nut/seed ingredients, like walnuts, pepitas, almond & cashew nuts, flax and sunflower seeds. But within the Tiger Nuts themselves can be found monounsaturated fats (eg. Oleic acid like olive), polyunsaturated fatty acids (eg. linoleic and linolenic like flax), and antioxidant Vitamin E.  Macadamia oil is highly naturally shelf stable and more resistant to oxidation at high temperatures than even rice bran/walnut/almond or avocado oils, and also has Omega-7 (palmitoleic) and antioxidant Vitamin E tocotrienols.  So short answer!  YES, ALL GOOD!


 


12.   Is there anyone who can’t enjoy Morning Munch?


CONTAINS TREE NUTS: All care taken but: product packed in a facility that also handles cereals; nuts/fruits naturally have shells/seeds; bees buzzing flowers can carry pollen. Residues may remain.


 


13.   What is the use by date?


Approximately 1 year unopened.


 


14.   How should I store the packet after opening?


Upon opening, ideally store well-sealed in the fridge and enjoy within one month (can you even resist!?)


 


15.    Why is Morning Munch not ACO certified? 


Because there are some unique ingredients that are difficult to source in certified form from Australian sources, and organic certifying bodies here have only 2 categories – either 100% organic, or 95+% organic.  For example, we think our customers would rather have Australian grown pineapple pieces, than a Chinese grown organic certified input.  True??


 


16.    What does the asterisk* after tiger nuts in the ingredient list signify? 


We prefer to source organic certified tiger nuts, however, as this is such a new agricultural crop in cultivation, there will possibly be hiccups in the supply chain until farmers can better gauge annual requirements, or if demand exceeds supply in the waiting period between crop sell out & fresh harvests.  Consequently, to ensure consistency of supply to our distributors and hungry customers, we may occasionally need to include some of these – full transparency.

The best of summer :) Review by KP
It really does taste like the best bits of summer. Loving the not too sweet or thick banana rounds with healthy little gingery bits – and the packaging is perfect because I can see at a glance everything I need to know about Fibre and Protein content, and that it’s low sodium too. Bonus! More flavours please!

Loved the flavours! Review by Aimee
I loved the flavour of all 3 varieties while trying them dry from the packets, the Cashew Colada and the Neapolitan flavours were sensational, really unique and interesting.
I love that the nuts and seeds are activated, that's a big deal for a lot of people and great to see. And awesome for trying to get tiger nuts in there as something different and interesting. I wasn't a huge fan of mixing them with coconut milk but would happily eat as a snack. (Posted on 9/05/16)
YUM! Review by Kath&Jade

It tastes great, and I'd totally buy it. (Posted on 9/05/16)
