NOW Foods Rawsome uses organic sourced nutrients to provide high-value nutrition in a small serving size, without unwanted chemicals and additives. Here are the 3 food techniques that are the backbone of providing RAWSOME with its amazing nutritional value.
Sprouting, also known as germination helps concentrate nutrient levels, break down hard-to-digest food components to aid digestibility, and increases probiotics and antioxidant levels in seedlings. Sprouting turns some super foods into LIVE SUPER foods, where vitamin and mineral levels can increase up to 30 times. Increases in beneficial fibre and protein content are also seen, while both are converted into easier-to-digest forms. The proliferation of antioxidants and probiotics help protect the germinating seed, and provide wonderful nutritional benefits for humans. Seeds retain their nutritional value longer as the occurrence of rancidity is reduced. Sprouted grains are used in Rawsome to help build its overall nutrient value.
Because of the extremely high oil content in flaxseed, stability and rancidity are common concerns. Sprouting flaxseed increases the vitamin (200-400%) and mineral content. These are powerful antioxidants that protect the polyunsaturated fats from oxidation, naturally stabilizing the essential fatty acids. SmartGrain Flax is created through a patented farming technique called ingraining. Based on the traditional and present organic farm practice of using fish meal to fertilize foods, Rawsome incorporates this natural process to both stabilize and fortify our product. Through the use of a process described as ingraining, Smartgrain provides a unique solution to the challenges of oxidative rancidity specific to the unstable chemical structure of the essential OMEGA 3 fatty acids, ALA, DHA, EPA. Ingraining is achieved through various stages of the germination process, whereby the seed metabolizes the DHA and EPA from a marine source (fish oil) to become included in the cellular matrix of the seed.
Ingraining is much different than current methods of spraying or mixing fish oil onto the surface of the food or seed particle or into a finished product. Through ingraining, the DHA and EPA from marine source now have become part of the seed and plant metabolism. This receptive internalization of DHA/EPA is the key to its oxidative stability. In fact, if the seed is further developed into a leaf bearing plant, lipid analysis confirms the presence of DHA/EPA in the living plant tissue. This demonstrates for the first time the presence of DHA/EPA in the chemical structure of a living terrestrial plant. Complete OMEGA 3 in SmartGrain flax is stable for up to 18 months based on anisidine and peroxide values.
