Taco Tuesday just got a whole lot more sneaky! Boosted Mexican Mix is the family-friendly seasoning that's not only free of nasties, but seriously boosted with extra goodies to nurture your loved ones on the sly.
Regular Mexican seasoning contains:
Empty white processed sugar, as the first listed ingredient
This means it's the most concentrated ingredient in the recipe. We know that in the short-term, this type of sugar causes a 50% reduction in immune response to viruses and bacteria by white T blood cells. This reduced immune response can last for around 5 hours after sugar consumption! Long-term effects of this sugar in our food system include chronic disease.
A genetically modified corn flour
Non-organic, Irradiated spices
Refined table salt, devoid of essential trace minerals
Anti-caking agent, Silicium Dioxide 551
551 was always considered safe until 2017 when scientists realised this synthetic nanopowder causes the cells in the mucosa of the gastrointestinal tract to instigate an inflammatory response in the bowel. So now, scientists are calling for this food additive to be reduced in the food system. In the meantime, it continues to line our supermarket shelves.
Not only is this Boosted Mexican Mix free of all the stuff listed above, but it has lots of added goodness in there too!
TWC's boosted Mexican seasoning mix includes organic spices and herbs, as well as:
♥ Dulse powder
Dulse is packed with valuable minerals, including iron and potassium. In fact, Alexx Stuart of Low Tox Life likens it to taking a multi-mineral. Iron helps red blood cells and muscle cells carry oxygen throughout your body and is needed for proper chemical reactions. Potassium plays an important role in balancing body fluids, helps your heart maintain a steady beat and is needed for proper muscle contraction. Our dulse is sourced from fresh, unpolluted Canadian waters.
♥ Parsley flakes
One of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, our parsley is gently dried to retain its nutrients. Parsley is high in antioxidants like vitamin C, A, and E, which can help soothe inflammation. It is also an excellent source of flavonoids and other antioxidants that help reduce the risk of many chronic diseases.
♥ Shiitake mushroom powder
These mushrooms are prized for their rich, savoury taste and diverse health benefits. Compounds in shiitake may help fight cancer, boost immunity, and support heart health.
♥ Spinach powder
One of the foremost health benefits of spinach is it’s beta-carotene content. These carotenoids act as antioxidants, cleansing the body of harmful molecules called free radicals. Beta-carotenes (the kind of carotenoids found in spinach) have the added effect of improving eye health for better vision and less eye degradation due to age. Luckily, these beta-carotenes are maintained when fresh spinach is turned into powder by gentle drying.
♥ Turmeric powder
Turmeric, and especially its most active compound curcumin, have many scientifically-proven health benefits, such as the potential to prevent heart disease and reduce inflammation, Alzheimer's and cancer. It's a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant and may also help improve symptoms of depression and arthritis.
♥ Activated black bean flour
So you get the benefit of nutrient and fibre diversity. We activate our black bean flour in-house simply by soaking organic black beans, gently drying them below 45°C to retain maximum nutrients, and then stone-milling them to create the activated flour. The stone-milling process delivers an unparalleled quality of flour as it allows for the beans to pass through the mill slowly and at cooler temperatures to preserve even more of the precious essential enzymes and nutrients retained in the beans. A good source of iron, magnesium and phosphorus, this nutritious activated black bean flour has a rich, earthy flavour. Where have you bean all my life?!
♥ Green stevia
A natural sweetener derived from the leaves of the stevia plant instead of sugar.
This product is naturally gluten, nut and soy free. Please bear in mind that we do pack a wide range of natural food products on shared equipment including nuts, seeds, grains and cereals. This includes sesame, peanuts, soy and gluten. While we do our best to avoid any kind of cross contamination, this can occasionally occur and any of our products may contain traces of these, unless we have specified the product is otherwise certified.
TWC source some of these products as Certified Organic (spec sheets available on request). We then pack them down in a yet-to-be-certified organic facility. This means they can't be sold as Certified Organic (just 'Organic'). We're in the process of gaining our very own organic certification and expect this will be complete by end of 2020. It's then that these very same high quality organic products will gain their 'certified' status on the TWC website. The product is no different whatsoever and the pack down area uses all organic cleaning agents. Clear as mud? ;)
