Why were the mushrooms added?
Mushrooms have been used throughout history in Traditional Medicine for centuries. They are famous for their health benefits and unique flavour. They are known for their antioxidant properties, beneficial polysaccharides, immuno supporting functions and many other positive functions. Science is still discovering exciting findings about them and their mechanisms, so they are constantly in the spotlight! Plus mushrooms are considered to be one of the best sources of protein and key vitamins/minerals for people that follow a vegan or vegetarian diet.
What do the mushrooms taste like?
Majority of mushrooms have a particular smokiness about them with shiitake having the most distinct and popular flavour. The roundness of the smokey flavour delicately compliments the delicate savoury broth while adding a soft aroma.
How are deactivated nutritional savoury flakes made?
They are made from a single-celled organism fungi called Saccharomyces cerevisiae grown on molasses. They are harvested, washed and dried with heat to ‘deactivate’ them and then rolled to form flakes.
Are deactivated nutritional savoury flakes fortified with vitamins?
Nutritional Yeast Flakes are fortified with vitamins in the initial stages of growth. As the yeast grows they organically bind to these vitamins and proliferate them. The yeast itself also digests these vitamins to a degree and proliferates its own nutrient content creating a naturally vitamin rich food that can easily be incorporated into all savoury meals.
What does "deactivated nutritional savoury flakes mean?
Deactivated is a term used to describe the quick heating process that stops nutritional yeast from being able to proliferate any further. Just like good and bad bacteria, there are good and bad yeasts that exist within our digestive tract. Unlike unhealthy yeasts such as Candida spp., nutritional yeast is made from a healthful yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae which helps to stop unhealthy yeasts from colonising in the digestive tract by a process of displacement. Therefore even though nutritional yeast is deactivated and unable to proliferate in the body, it is still having the favourable effects of a beneficial yeast in the digestive tract.
What is so special about red miso?
We use Certified Organic Red Miso as a base for all of our veggie broths, as it is naturally rich in vitamins and minerals delivering wholesome benefits. It has been dried using a low temperature drying method (freeze drying technique) to retain most of its nutritional benefits, taste and colour. During its processing soya beans and rice were fermented with the probiotic fungus Aspergillus oryzae, to enhance the umami flavour and health goodness.
