What's in the yummy?
At Nutty Bunny we believe in full transparency to our consumers. We are always proud to share nutritional and source information for all our ingredients. We pride ourselves in the fact that our products are all nutrient dense and bring real value to your daily dietary requirements.
Cashews are the base of all of our flavors. We love cashews because they:
• Are an excellent source of copper, and a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, and zinc
• Are lower in fat (47%) than most other nuts and most of the fat is unsaturated
• Contain 20% protein
• Support heart & lung function
• Have anti fungal properties and are nurturing to dry skin
• Contain antioxidants
...not to be confused with cocoa, which is processed and usually has additives. Cacao beans grow on trees found in Central and South America. When these beans are processed, they become cocoa and chocolate, but our raw and organic beans keep the super powers that others loose through processing.
• Highest source of magnesium and chromium of any food.
• All compounds found in raw cacao benefit longevity
• Rich in vitamins A,B (1,2,3,5,and 6), C, E, magnesium, copper, calcium, manganese, zinc, sulphur, iron, chromium, phosphorous, omega 6 fatty acids, amino acids, carbohydrates, soluble fiber and enzymes.
To add just the right amount of sweetness
• Rich in essential nutrients such as manganese and zinc
• Antioxidant properties promote a healthy heart and immune system
COCONUT OIL & COCONUT MILK
• One of the few significant plant sources of lauric acid that enhances brain function and the immune system
• Antiviral and antibacterial properties
ALMONDS & ALMOND MILK
• We make our own almond milk! Why? Honestly, because it’s just creamier and yummier that way and keep the maximum nutritional properties. Unlike many store bought almond milks, we grind and use the entire nut instead of straining out the nutrients.
• Exceptional source of vitamin E and rich in manganese, magnesium and riboflavin
• Promotes heart health, healthy weight and digestive system health.
• Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antiseptic
• Aids with digestion
• Contains 84 minerals and is high in iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, potassium and chloride
• Also contains traces of boron, fluoride, iodine, zinc, selenium and copper, all of which are necessary for overall bodily health.
• Used for over 2500 years in India
• Long known for its anti-inflammatory properties, recent research has revealed that it can be helpful in the treatment of many different health conditions
So what's not in Nutty Bunny?
Fillers such as Guar Gum - because it produces bloating, intestinal gas and other yucky stomach issues that we won’t discuss here. And it can also cause migraines and skin irritation. And because it simply adds no nutritional value.
Thickening agents like Carrageenan - because we’re already thick and creamy enough! And because it is known to increase systemic inflammation and ulcers. Wow! We certainly don’t want that stuff!
Agave Nectar - because it’s basically fructose (even if it’s natural) which is linked to type 2 diabetes - so nothing healthful for us there.
Cane Sugar of any kind - because it only adds sweet and nothing more. We can do better than that!
