Berrypicker products contain organic Finnish wheats, berries and good carbohydrates. Complex, good carbs provide balanced and slow releasing energy, which helps control appetite and delays hunger. The products are also high in fibres, vitamins and minerals.
Complex, good carbs
Good carbohydrates are minimally processed and come from wholegrains, vegetables, fruit, beans, legumes, nuts and seeds. Good carbs have complex chemical structures which require the body to work harder to digest them, releasing energy over a longer period of time and having less of an immediate impact on blood sugar.
Simple, bad carbs
Simple carbs come from candies, syrups, soft drinks, pastries and refined, soft grains, like wheat flour. They are digested and absorbed quickly into the body. The energy is stored as glycogen in our cells, and if it is not used immediately, it gets converted into fat. Simple carbs are highly processed, low in fibres and nutrients.
Berrypicker sugar isomaltulose is a good, complex carb, unlike the ordinary white sugar, sucrose. Isomaltulose (Palatinose) is a naturally sourced smart sugar, made from sucrose produced from sugar beet. Isomaltulose is gentle on your teeth and it is naturally present in honey and sugar cane. Isomaltulose provides a steady and sustained source of carbohydrate energy ideal for active people.
Glycemic index GI
The glycemic index shows how quickly and how much carbohydrates raise blood sugar levels after eating. The high glycemic index means that carbs are rapidly digested and cause substantial fluctuations in blood sugar. The low glycemic index means that carbs are digested more slowly, prompting a more gradual rise in blood sugar. Food with a low glycemic index like Berrypicker products have been shown to help control type 2 diabetes, improve weight loss and athletic performance.
Organic raw materials
Berrypicker products are made from Finnish organic raw materials, wild low bush berries and grains. The differences between organically and conventionally cultivated plants exist. Organic produce contains fewer pesticides and has higher levels of many antioxidants and nutrients plus substantially lower level of nitrates than conventional grown food.
