Gut | Gluten Sensitive
Gut health and wellness, food gastrology and individual responses to foods is an area of significant ongoing science based research due to the link between a healthy microbiome to nearly every facet of health. “You are what you absorb … unlocking of key binders … bioactive nutrition” is an area that Eat Right continues to invest significant time and research. Hence, the addition of more “gut supportive” functional fiber EATRIGHT (trademark) products, where we can!
The EATRIGHT (trademark) organic green and gold dried kiwifruit slices are a "source of fiber" and have "unique, wholefood prebiotic action that supports gut microbiome balance for optimal immune and digestive health" (New Zealand Institute for Plant & Food Research Limited).
“Green kiwifruit ... containing the cysteine protease actinidin, degraded gluten ... and could be a natural way to manage gluten-related health disorders; an example of positive food synergy”. (Possibility of minimizing gluten intolerance by co consumption of some fruits by Isuri A. Jayawardana, Carlos A Montoya, Warren C McNabb, Mike J. Boland (Dec ’19)). Or, in other words, EATRIGHT (trademark) organic green kiwifruit slices could be a natural source of active enzymes to reduce the health and medical costs associated with the accidental or intentional consumption of small amounts of gluten for gluten sensitive individuals. Rigorous testing to be undertaken soonish we hope.
Although, the EATRIGHT (trademark) cracker, cookie/biscuit, bar/ball and cake products (excluding some "bespoke" foods) are designed and made using certified organic, naturally non-gluten flours (tested to <20ppm gluten) and "ingredients you can pronounce" … it is our commitment to use unrefined, less processed ingredients with vitamins and minerals (in amounts that exceed the claimable thresholds required for recommended daily intakes) that has given them “superfood” status. We use stoneground buckwheat flour (brown rice flour if there are supply issues). Chicory root fiber is used in the EATRIGHT (trademark) Choc-holics Cookies which is a soluble fiber, a prebiotic ... meaning it feeds the good gut bacteria which, in turn, improves mineral absorption, moderates the immune system and lowers blood glucose levels. Unhulled, whole, selectively sprouted-activated seeds are used in the Superseeded Crackers to improve gut digestibility and as a source of potassium.
To better reflect our “more benefits in every bite” EATRIGHT (trademark) ingredient-product-functionality-company-country attributes (rather than what they are ‘free from’) we endeavour to be in a constant state of label, packaging, product, technology, testing, distribution transformation. Although this can be challenging (due to numerous different and changing regulatory requirements, product types, testing complexities and resource constraints), we are 'in process' to improve label nutrition information such as “natural source of …”, “high in …”, “no added …”, “rich in …”, "65% less ...", "GMO free”, “made with certified organic ingredients”, “includes wholegrains”, “minimally processed”, “vegetarian &/or vegan”, “consume as part of an overall healthy diet" and other "secret sauce" difficult to imitate developments (depending on the product).
"Research has proposed the possible role of the pathogenic yeast Candida albicans in the onset of Coeliacs disease". (Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research, Nutrition and Food. Nieuwenhuizen WF, Pieters RM, Knipples LM, Jansen MC, Koppelman SJ; June 21,2003). "Arthritis may also be caused by bacterial, viral or fungal (candida albicans) infection of the joints". (Arthritis Association, Australia). Hence, all EATRIGHT (trademark) products have no added yeast. In addition, the Candid Cookies and Super-seeded Crackers are suitable for a low yeast diet.

Congratulations on the (Candid) Cookie. I have received my first order and you've done wonders - it's delicious. Thanks for thinking of people who want to keep candida in check, and for making such nice cookie! Alison Cumming, Dunedin
