Salute

I prodotti vegetali sono migliori per la mia salute?

È tutta una questione di equilibrio.

Un'alimentazione adeguata e varia assicura che il tuo organismo riceva molte sostanze nutritive diverse come vitamine, minerali e fibre, oltre ad altri elementi importanti, come proteine, grassi e carboidrati. Tuttavia, mangiare cibi vegetali è una buona idea per molte ragioni.

In primo luogo, il tuo corpo è strutturato per mangiare ed elaborare vegetali. Per oltre centomila anni, gli esseri umani come specie hanno vissuto di una dieta composta principalmente da frutta e verdura. Oggi, la maggior parte delle persone mangia una quantità di carne più che sufficiente, ma non riesce a consumare la propria razione di verdura, frutta, semi e cereali. Ciò significa che il nostro corpo non riceve le sostanze nutritive vitali di cui ha bisogno.

Il consumo di alimenti vegetali è inoltre molto più rispettoso dell'ambiente, poiché le alternative allo yogurt realizzate con noci di cocco o mandorle richiedono una quantità nettamente inferiore di CO2 e metano nella produzione rispetto allo yogurt realizzato con latte vaccino.

Da Abbot Kinney's realizziamo deliziosi prodotti biologici vegetali con solo i migliori ingredienti. Cerchiamo di utilizzare il minor numero di ingredienti possibile, non aggiungiamo mai additivi innaturali e facciamo di tutto per produrre in modo responsabile tutto ciò che facciamo.

Aggiungete qualche tipo di zucchero ai vostri prodotti?

II nostri yoghurt vegetali non contengono zuccheri aggiunti, dolcificanti o additivi non necessari di alcun tipo. Tutti gli zuccheri riportati nelle nostre informazioni nutrizionali si trovano naturalmente nelle noci o nei frutti stessi.

I nostri dessert vegetali contengono una piccola quantità di sciroppo di glucosio e zucchero di canna. Usiamo questi dolcificanti per migliorare la consistenza complessiva e anche perché senza un po' di zucchero, non saresti in grado di eliminare il nostro Frost. Il gelato è un piacere, quindi mentre è importante regalarsi, come con tutte le cose buone, goditelo con moderazione.


What is the source of sweetener in your ice creams?

To make nice and naturally scoopable ice cream, a 'dry' substance is technically required to ensure smooth production. For this, we use a blend of organic corn syrup (mix of corn and agave) and cane sugar. As you may have noticed, that's a different source than we used before in our Coco Frosts. The main reason for this is that cane sugar and corn syrup provide a higher percentage of 'dry matter' in the total mix of ingredients, which means that the ice cream can be produced even better.

We don't use anything we don't like, and we already have good experiences with using these organic sweeteners to make ice cream, as we have always used them for our Frosticks. And, on top of that, cane sugar is a safer use regarding allergens. How sweet is that?

Packaging

Un dessert vegetale è un buon sostituto del normale yogurt a base di latte?

I sostituti vegetali dello yogurt e lo yogurt a base di latte vaccino sono due cose molto diverse. Può sembrare un'affermazione ovvia, ma lo yogurt da latte vaccino è un prodotto animale e lo yogurt realizzato con latte di cocco, mandorle o avena è un prodotto vegetale. Contengono quindi sostanze nutritive diverse.

Facciamo un esempio con Coco Start. La differenza maggiore è che Coco Start contiene meno zuccheri e più grassi vegetali rispetto allo yogurt di latte vaccino. Sebbene ci sia meno calcio in Coco Start rispetto allo yogurt normale, il primo contiene molto più magnesio, è meno dannoso per il nostro pianeta e molte persone trovano i dessert vegetali più facili da digerire.

Quindi, sebbene i nostri dessert non sostituiscano totalmente lo yogurt normale, sono vegetali e naturalmente privi di lattosio e glutine.

Is the carton recyclable?

Why is the barista drink diffferent to mild?

Barista uses the great tasting blend of plant based milks rice, coconut and soya so has a great light mild taste but the recipe is designed so it can be frothed. The Barsista froths as cows mik does to make great cappuccino. The recipe has guar gum added which helps with the frothing.

What is guar gum? And why is it used?

Guar is a widely used as an ingredient. We added it to some of our drinks because it is soluble and forms a slight gel that helps to prevent any separation over shelf life. Guar gum is made from guar beans which are a legume.

Usage

When I opened my refigerated drinks and poured into a glass, I found it was curdled and separated, can I drink this ?

If the product had no signs of spoilage and “Use By” date was current, the degraded appearance could possibly be caused by improper storage conditions somewhere in the drinks shelf life. One example, if the product was frozen, it may have broken down and separated forming curdled pieces once thawed. Also excessive heat will effect the shelf life.

Can I freeze your drinks?

No,we do not recommended freezing Abbot Kinney's drinks as this may cause the product to separate irregularly and this greatly reduces the visual quality and consistency of the product upon thawing.

How soon should I use your drinks after I open them?

After opening, Abbot Kinney's drinks should be used within 5 days. Because the drinks do not contain preservatives, they are susceptible to spoilage after being opened for a prolonged period of time. Once opened, do not leave opened unrefrigerated for an extended period of time. Storage at room temperature will shorten the shelf life and, just like cow’s milk, Abbot Kinney's plant-based drinks will spoil if left unrefrigerated too long.

How should I store your drinks?

Unopened Abbot Kinney's drinks can be stored in your fridge up until the “BEST BEFORE” date printed on top of the carton.

Can your drinks be used in baking and in recipes?

Abbot Kinney's plant-based drinks can be used in just about any recipe calling for traditional cow’s milk or other dairy alternative milk. It can be used in baking, soups and sauces, as well as heated up for hot drinks, etc.
