We are so glad you've found our Oat Ginger Baking Mix!
Here's what you should know about this Gut Healthy, Focus Enhancing Functional Baking Blend:
First, let's define a few terms we like to use here at You Again:
1) Functional: Functional foods and ingredients serve a health benefiting purpose in our bodies. No ingredient is wasted energy or "calories". We believe ingredients matter and food should serve a purpose.
2) Adaptogens: These are plant or herbs that when consumed "adapt" to the imbalances within our body to bring us back to homeostasis, naturally! They have been used for centuries, primarily in India and Chia through ancient medicines called Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Now let's highlight a few of our Superstar Ingredients:
Gluten Free Sprouted Oat Flour: Sprouted grains allow for better absorption of nutrients, like fiber and protein, and is much easier to digest.
Maca: Maca is an adaptogen known for providing energy as well as balancing reproductive hormones.
Flax: Flax is a seed that is high in healthy omegas and fiber. In vegan baking, it also serves as an egg replacement.
Chaga: Chaga is an adaptogenic mushroom known for supporting the immune system.
Lion's Mane: Lion's Mane is an adaptogenic mushroom known for helping us focus better.
Ceylon Cinnamon: This widely used spice does more than just add flavor, it's also used in functional medicine to support our blood sugar and digestion.
Turmeric: Used for centuries in India and Ayurvedic medicine, this superfood root is known to reduce inflammation, improve digestion, and combat the common cold.
Ginger: Ginger is an all around hero, supporting our digestive system and immune system.
