Yummee Gluten-free uses only the freshest and highest quality cashews possible that are certified organic sourced from Vietnam. (Unfortunately, Australia does not have enough organic cashew suppliers) I always try to buy Australian ingredients when possible. Supporting our own economy and small business are an integral part of the Yummee Gluten-Free ethos.
Minimal ingredients with maximum taste!
Cashews have a low glycaemic index (GI) of 25. A low GI diet may help to manage blood glucose and insulin levels and may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetics and heart disease. Cashews are high in iron. Many coeliacs are low in iron. Iron is needed for transporting oxygen in the blood, it is essential for wound healing, immune health and energy levels. Cashews are also high in niacin, a B group vitamin. B group vitamins are required for growth and metabolism. Cashews also contain copper, iron, magnesium, selenium and zinc which have many roles in the body including nerve function, bone growth, glucose metabolism and immune health. Cashews contain monounsaturated fats which are important for heart health and inflammation.
Organic dates are used for their natural sweetness. No preservatives or additives are ever used in our Yummee Gluten Free products. Dates contain some fibre, good for the gut, some b vitamins and a small amount of protein.
Raw Cacao is used for its flavour and nutrient boost. Raw cacao is high in fibre and magnesium. Great for your gut and your overall health. Magnesium is an essential mineral as it is a cofactor in more than 300 enzymes/cellular functions that regulate diverse reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, blood pressure, bone health and energy production.
70% vegan dark chocolate – made this nut butter without the chocolate, just the raw cacao. The taste was not chocolatey enough! As my aim is to provide quality products I use high grade, vegan and organic chocolate as this product was made for my daughter. I knew if it didn’t taste good or wasn’t similar to another chocolate spread in the market, she would not eat it. I have continued to use a small amount of high-quality chocolate as it makes our Yummee Gluten-free Cashew, Cacoa and Date butter so YUMMEE. I believe food should not only taste good but make you feel good too.
