CARBOHYDRATES

Oats

Balanced nutrition

An ideal cereal that contains 55% carbohydrates, 12% protein and 7% fat. Rich in amino acids such as Lysine, vitamins K, B1, B3 and B6, minerals such as magnesium, zinc, iron and calcium, omega 6 fatty acids and a lot of fiber.

Fructose

Sweetener.

A type of sugar found in fruits, vegetables, and honey, with beneficial properties for the central nervous system, muscles and the brain.

Unlike glucose that is absorbed instantaneously producing a rapid increase and decrease in energy, the fructose is metabolized and stored, partly by the liver in the form of glycogen to assist when any effort is made.

Maltodextrin

Insulin increase.

It is a product made from the hydrolysis of starch that is rapidly metabolized in the human body, contributing to an exponential increase in insulin in the bloodstream. As a result, energy and resistance are increased during the performance of high physical exertion activities, avoiding muscular catabolism and fatigue.

Pectin

Absorbent.

Pectin is a purified acid from apple pulp that contains mainly galacturonic acids and has a demulgent and absorbing gastrointestinal action. Pectin is also able to trap cations and organic material, such as bile acid. In addition, certain beneficial effects have been attributed to the prevention of colorectal cancer.

Quinoa

Powerful cereal.

It is a very complete, nutritional pseudocereal that provides proteins, fats and carbohydrates. It has 8 essential amino acids such as lysine, arginine and histidine, essential for the growth and development of children. It is rich in methionine, cystine, iron, calcium, phosphorus and vitamins, but with very little fat. The average protein per grain can be between 16% and 23% which is more than double that of any cereal.

Inulin

Prebiotic.

It is a fructose or fructan, usually found in the roots, tubers and rhizomes of certain flowering plants. Inulin stimulates the growth of intestinal microorganisms, such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli and by promoting the growth of beneficial microorganisms for health is considered to have prebiotic activity. Inulin is a soluble food fiber that increases intestinal peristalsis and facilitates the absorption of minerals such as calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.

Sucralose

Low in calories.

Sucralose is an organochlorine produced from sucrose. It is used as a sweetener that provides 31% of the calories that sugar has. In 1990, sucralose was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives of FAO / WHO. Many studies have concluded that sucralose is safe and can be consumed by anyone.
