Protein has become a buzzword often associated with health and fitness and protein shakes continue to be all the rage with all levels of athletes, bodybuilders and Crossfitter enthusiasts around the world.

While there are many brands of protein products available, they fall into two general categories: dairy-based whey products and plant protein products. Plant-based protein is much easier to digest and intrinsically environmentally superior.

Nutiva has introduced a new power shake that incorporates thirty superfoods in one shake and is certified organic. Available in chocolate and vanilla, the Organic Plant Protein Superfood 30 Shake is non-GMO, vegan and gluten-free and contains 20 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber per serving.

The Organic Nutiva Superfood 30 Shake is made without dairy, soy, artificial flavors, added sugar or stevia and gets its protein punch from pea, pumpkin, sunflower, chia, hemp and sacha inchi plant proteins. …read more of This Nutrient Dense Vegan Protein Shake Delivers 30 Superfoods! here

Consumers are becoming concerned about food, health and safety issues and the social and ecological implications of their purchases. There is a growing distrust of conventional agro-industrial foods and consumers perceive organic products to be a more sustainable system delivering better-tasting, healthier and safer food.

A ten-year study by scientists at U.C. Davis in California found that the level of quercitin, the most common flavonoid in the human diet and the major flavonoid in tomatoes, increased 79 percent as a result of organic management. Also remarkable, the level of kaempferol, a natural antioxidant thought to prevent arteriosclerosis.

According to a report by The Organic Center in Boulder, Colorado, eating organic fruits and vegetables will increase the body’s antioxidant intake by about 30 percent, as compared to conventionally grown produce.[1]

Organic food differs from conventionally produced food in the way it is grown, handled, and processed. Organic food is also produced with renewable resources that promote the conservation of soil and water to enhance and preserve the environment.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has put in place a set of national standards that food labeled “organic” must meet, whether it is grown in the United States or imported from other countries. …read more of Does Organic Food from China Meet the Same Standards? here
