- Full Description
Nutrients for immune health and digestive health
Vegetable Broth is naturally loaded with essential nutrients that support immunity when consumed as part of a healthful & varied diet. These nutrients include a whole food source of Zinc which is an essential mineral for assisting immune system function and contributes to cell protection from free radicals and Vitamin B12 to help reduce tiredness and fatigue whilst also supporting immunity. Vegetable Broth also contains a source of Calcium necessary not only for normal bone and teeth structure but also contributes to the function of digestive enzymes and energy metabolism. These nutrients can otherwise be slightly more difficult to obtain in a vegan diet and are more readily found in animal based food sources.

What is mirepoix?
Mirepoix is a cooking technique used in French cuisine to give a specific flavour to a dish. It is made on a base of diced vegetables cooked for a long time on low heat. We have found the perfect mirepoix supplier that offers a combination of onion, carrot, celery and garlic that have been gently dried and transformed into a powder. Our mirepoix provides a rich flavour to our broth.
How are deactivated nutritional savoury flakes made?
They are made from a single-celled organism fungi called Saccharomyces cerevisiae grown on molasses. They are harvested, washed and dried with heat to ‘deactivate’ them and then rolled to form flakes.
Are deactivated nutritional savoury flakes fortified with vitamins?
Nutritional Yeast Flakes are fortified with vitamins in the initial stages of growth. As the yeast grows they organically bind to these vitamins and proliferate them. The yeast itself also digests these vitamins to a degree and proliferates its own nutrient content creating a naturally vitamin rich food that can easily be incorporated into all savoury meals.
What does "deactivated" nutritional savoury flakes mean?
Deactivated is a term used to describe the quick heating process that stops nutritional yeast from being able to proliferate any further. Just like good and bad bacteria, there are good and bad yeasts that exist within our digestive tract. Unlike unhealthy yeasts such as Candida spp., nutritional yeast is made from a healthful yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae which helps to stop unhealthy yeasts from colonising in the digestive tract by a process of displacement. Therefore even though nutritional yeast is deactivated and unable to proliferate in the body, it is still having the favourable effects of a beneficial yeast in the digestive tract.
What is so special about red miso?
We use Certified Organic Red Miso as a base for all of our veggie broths, as it is naturally rich in vitamins and minerals delivering wholesome benefits. It has been dried using a low temperature drying method (freeze drying technique) to retain most of its nutritional benefits, taste and colour. During its processing soya beans and rice were fermented with the probiotic fungus Aspergillus oryzae, to enhance the umami flavour and health goodness.
Is it gluten free?
Yes! The recipes do not contain any gluten containing ingredients and we make sure that they are manufactured and packed in a gluten free environment.
Is it pregnancy & breastfeeding friendly?
Yes! In saying this, we do advise to seek the advice of your primary health care professional if taking any of our products for the first time if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. We only say so as we believe that every pregnancy is different, taking a toll differently on each individual body in vitamin, mineral and energy levels. We invite you to research the product to ensure that you are not sensitive to any particular ingredients.
Is it vegan or vegetarian?
YES, it does not contain any animal derived ingredients.
Is it soy free?
NO. We have used Organic Red Miso as a base for all of our Vegetable Broths. Red Miso is made from soybeans, so our products do contain soy.
