Superfoods

Welcome. In this section we introduce our range of superfoods. The term ‘superfood’ is a buzzword that keeps on buzzing – and for good reason! As the planet becomes ever more challenged and our lives ever more stressful, optimum nutrition becomes increasingly important. The good news is: with nutrient-dense superfoods, such as certain berries, seeds, mushrooms, micro-algae, grasses and seaweeds, we can easily elevate our nutritional status. Some superfoods have what is considered to be a near-perfect nutritional profile; others are amongst the richest natural sources of particular nutrient.

In addition, the micro-algae (spirulina and chorella), being single-celled plants, require minimal digestion – which means faster assimilation and a welcome break for the gastro-intestinal system. Incorporating superfoods into a balanced wholefood diet is a great example of prevention being preferable to cure – build up the body, make it strong and clean, and disease will find it hard to take a foothold.

At Indigo Herbs we source superfoods from all around the world, always choosing suppliers that support the farmers who produce these plants. All our superfoods are 100% natural, of premium quality, and many of them are organic too. The only processing they undergo is slow-drying or freeze-drying to preserve their goodness.

Superfood powders can be added to juices or smoothies, or made into energy bars. Simply mix your chosen powder(s) with some nuts and seeds, dried fruit or agave nectar, and blend in a food processor. Keep in the fridge.

This fruit must be processed when it is picked as it quickly starts to ferment so freeze dried is the best way to preserve the taste and nutritional content. The frozen berries are then milled into a fine powder.

There is no heat treatment of any sort making because of the dryness of the pulp in its natural form. The Baobab fruit can be harvested from the tree and kept up to three months before the pulp starts to turn.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Bee Pollen comes from Spain and is considered the best in the world, harvested between April and May, after the rains have finished but before the summer when the bees stop collecting Bee Pollen. The collection method consists of a fine mesh connected to the hive main entrance which disconnects large chunks pollen that has collected on the legs of the bees which falls into a collection box. The pollen is only collected for 3-4 days each week and only for a period no longer than 4-5 weeks. This leaves the bees an abundant amount of pollen for them to eat without detracting from their essential reserves for the winter. The Pollen is then dried in special air dyers at a temperature no higher than 45ºC. Drying at this temperature insures that the nutritional quality of the pollen is not reduced by the use of irradiation and sterilization. Quality checks are made through sieving and then by human eye by experts to guarantee that there are absolutely no pollutants in Indigo Herbs Bee Pollen. Each batch can be traced back to each hive so that problems can be sorted out immediately. Our supplier takes great pride in the quality of this pollen.

Bee Pollen should be avoided by anyone with an allergy to honey or bees, medical attention should be sort immediately. Bee Pollen should also be avoided by diabetics.
