Bioavailability

How does organic quinoa benefit my baby?

You may not have heard of bioavailablity before as we usually focus on the nutritional content of food*. Bioavailability is the proportion of food nutrients that can be absorbed by the body – it represents the bodies efficiency of absorbing these lovely nutrients. Nutritional content can be irrelevant unless the food has a high bioavailablity for example, vitamins are best absorbed when eaten in fruit form rather than in supplement or puree form.

Organic vegetables have high nutritional densities

Our organic ingredients have a direct impact on the nutritional content of our recipes. Organic products are highly nutritious. Nutrients are perfectly preserved because there are no added synthetic products. Organic products have high nutritional densities, with intense concentrations of essential nutrients per weight unit compared to their non-organic equivalents. Not to mention their unrivalled colour, aroma and taste.

All our ingredients are organic with no additives or processing aids involved in the preparation. This results in simple, tasty and healthy products, which cover all of your child’s needs.

The importance of quinoa

All the nutrients found in quinoa have good bioavailability. Our quinoa-based baby products are good natural sources of vitamins, iron, and minerals, which can easily be absorbed by your child. The complex proteins in quinoa have bioavailabilities similar to those of meat. Quinoa contains the 9 essential fatty acids involved in proper brain development, as well as lysine, which is usually scarce in foods and plays an important role in skeletal growth and development. The fibres contained in quinoa (a 50% higher fibre content than brown rice) ensure good intestinal transit.
