Anutra Whole 16 OZ
Anutra™ (Salvia Hispanica L) - a vastly important, novel and nutritious food with tremendous nutritional and health-promoting value. Based on clinical studies conducted on the healthy properties of Anutra™, this super grain may soon become one of the first functional foods recommended for the management of blood pressure, body inflammation and the control of Type 2 Diabetes.
Anutra™ is a rich source of important Lignans (see page 8). Only 2 tablespoons of Anutra™ provides 1,275 mg of Lignans. Flax contains approximately 50 mg of Lignans for the same serving size.
The amino acid protein profile of Anutra™ yields a 91% protein quality for Anutra™ versus a 60% protein quality for flax (both based on limiting value, Lysine).
Anutra™ absorbs more than 18 times its weight in water. It is great for body hydration and as a fat replacer. Flax absorbs only 6 times its weight in water and is not as effective for body hydration or as a fat replacer.
Anutra's unique soluble fiber forms a gel in the stomach that creates a physical barrier between carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down. This process slows the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar. Flax does not have this "gel" forming property
Anutra's neutral flavor and its hydrophilic structure lends itself to limitless recipe applications.
