We start with 100% natural whole food ingredients from sources that we know and trust.
All our starting ingredients come from sources that we know and trust. All our ingredients are stringently checked to ensure they do not contain any traces of pesticides or herbicides – in other words all but certified organic.
The whole food ingredients are then reduced to a paste and enriched with highly beneficial nutrients.
The vitamin or mineral that we grow is cleverly attached to a naturally occurring protein (called a glycoprotein) that the food recognises and allows into its matrix – the part of the food that does all the clever metabolising. This is done very carefully and considerately, paying attention to add just the right amount, not over saturating the food. This introduction of the mineral salt occurs at the natural ‘budding’ process of the food cell when the food is at it’s most receptive.
The nutrients grow within the whole food producing a super nutritious food complex. The whole process takes 72 hours
This process is not forced nor heated at any stage, allowing the metabolization to occur at the same rate it would naturally and without the addition of any processing chemicals, just purified water. In fact no temperatures above 32.5 degrees Celsius are used throughout the entire Food-Grown® process, guaranteeing that the ‘co-factors’ are kept in tact. As a result our finished product is classified as ‘raw’ nutrient rich food.
Finally we spray dry the nutritious complex with filtered air, into a powder form ready for encapsulation.
At the final stage of the Food-Grown® process a specific plant-based enzyme is introduced to deactivate the proteins on the food cell wall. This renders the end product hypo-allergenic, meaning it is suitable for those with yeast or lactose concerns in the case of candida overgrowth or lactose intolerant individuals.
The mineral or vitamin food concentrate is then thoroughly washed up to 7 times with purified water and then dried with filtered air - no solvents in sight - ready for encapsulation. Nothing else is added, no fillers, binders or preservatives, leaving us with just raw nutrient-rich food concentrate.
We test each and every batch to confirm there is no trace of toxic metals, pesticides and herbicides both at the beginning and end of the process.
