This week we're taking a deep dive into the 5 base ingredients that make up our bites. What makes them the perfect option for real food fuel while snacking on the the go? Read up and see why!
We use a base nut butter of either cashew or peanut butter. We source our nut butter from a local supplier who grounds them fresh for us upon ordering. No added oils, sugar or preservatives. Each serving of Yomi Bites has 5-6 grams of protein per bag all coming from this plant based source.
Our natural preservative, sweetener, and binder is delicious clover honey. We source our honey domestically in the USA. Honey is rich in antioxidants that have been linked to help lowering blood pressure.
Rolled oats make for the perfect texture for our protein bites. Oats are naturally gluten free (GF), but we make sure to use certified GF oats which means they're processed in a facility free of any gluten. Oats are rich in antioxidants and fiber and a perfect compliment to our two binders for maximum health benefits.
Flax seed is essential in the base of our protein bites because they are a nutrient dense powerhouse of a seed. They're loaded with protein, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and are a rich source of some vitamins and minerals. We use organic golden ground flax instead of whole seeds to blend in nicely with our cookie-dough like texture and taste,
Why we use sea salt as opposed to table salt...
Table salt is processed and stripped down to sodium and chloride. Sea salt is minimally or not processed at all, leaving all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that help keep us hydrated. It helps balance electrolytes to help prevent muscle cramping.
