WHEN SHOULD I EAT A NOKA SUPERFOOD BLEND?
Anytime! NOKA Superfood Blends are the ideal on-the-go snack to fuel your workout and the answer for any other time you don’t have access to real, nutritious food -- at work, traveling, etc. Our blends are also a delicious superfood boost to your daily staples like yogurt, granola and oatmeal. We know that eating healthy is important to you, but that you don’t always have the time to make a healthy snack or to shop for the best ingredients, so we did that for you!
ARE NOKA SUPERFOOD BLENDS SAFE FOR KIDS?
Absolutely! They’re nutritious and delicious, and they're a great way for your kids to explore new flavor profiles. Plus, the pouch packaging is incredibly durable so it can stand the test of your kid’s backpack and lunchbox.
WHAT’S SO GREAT ABOUT THE POUCH PACKAGING?
The pouch keeps the ingredients inside fresh without artificial preservatives or refrigeration. It also retains the natural water content of fruits and veggies to deliver a lighter and more refreshing snack alternative to bars and other packaged foods. The pouches are portable and durable so that you can have a delicious snack that you can take anywhere.
WHY ALL OF THE FUSS ABOUT SUPERFOODS?
We chose to include superfoods because of their incredibly high nutritional profiles and the extensive body of research on the superior health benefits of eating real foods found in nature. Our bodies are designed to absorb nutrients from superfoods better than vitamin supplements or synthetic foods. Not to mention, superfoods are all delicious in their own right! We also happen to love the stories behind the superfoods that we selected for our blends, such as the wild Maqui Berry that has been harvested by the Mapuche Indians in Patagonia for thousands of years and is credited with giving their warriors extraordinary strength and stamina.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BROWN RICE PROTEIN?
Each of our blends provides 3-4 grams of organic brown rice protein, which is a great vegan alternative to whey protein. Clinical trials show that rice protein is as beneficial as whey protein at building muscles, decreasing fat mass and aiding exercise recovery. While all whey proteins are derived from milk, our brown rice protein is derived from organic whole grain brown rice and it is non-GMO and gluten-free.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FLAX SEED?
Flaxseed is one of those ingredients that our parents and our grandparents eat, right? For good reason! It’s an excellent source of fiber and Omega-3 essential fatty acids that your body does not naturally produce and relies on you to get from food. Omega-3’s are crucial for brain function and they have a plethora of other health benefits such as lowering the risk of chronic diseases and promoting the healthy development of infants during and after pregnancy.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NATURAL AND REFINED SUGAR?
Eating a NOKA is the same as eating real fruits and veggies in all their goodness -- the flavor, the natural energy, and the balancing fiber. Because we don’t add refined sugars to our products, our blends only have the naturally occurring sugar in fruits and vegetables. A single NOKA Superfood Blend contains between 14-17 grams of natural sugar, whereas an apple contains 19 grams and a banana contains 17 grams. So, you can always feel good eating a NOKA!
WHAT'S THE SHELF LIFE OF A NOKA SUPERFOOD BLEND?
