Functional Foods

We put toghether the Health effect of honey with the health effect of Spices AND heal with nutrition

Functional Foods are tools to be used for blending flavor with function. Food often becomes an afterthought left to routine and limited options. By blending savory, nutrient-rich ingredients we empower you and challenge the norm; providing the benefits of taste and the power of choice.

A functional food is a food given an additional function (often one related to health-promotion or disease prevention) by adding new ingredients or more of existing ingredients.

Many of today’s most challenging, costly, and debilitating conditions, including a variety of age-related disease, are now recognized as being closely tied to the mismatch between dietary and lifestyle habits and genetic predisposition. Functional Nutrition is the use of nutrients to combat these conditions where modern medicine / pharmacology cannot treat.

Honey is a diverse super food created to support a whole community of bees. It can be used as an antioxidant, it has antimicrobial, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, it boosts athletic performance, and it is a rich source of vitamins and minerals.

However, the benefits we get from honey greatly depend on its quality. Not all honey is created equal, as the flower from which honey is made can also carry added health benefits. Whether it is spring honey or summer, mountain or Manuka, honey is an adaptive resource that takes the best from the environment and makes it into a functional food source. There is no other food source with so many functions and uses. It is nature’s miracle of food.
