Healthy Kitchen

In addition to nutritional supplements, we also offer a wide variety of products that let you cook healthier meals for your family. Many of these products can't be found at mainstream supermarkets. Use this guide to help select the products most useful and beneficial to you.

Brown rice syrup - Tastes sweet like sugar, but is actually a complex carbohydrate, so it has a much milder effect on blood sugar levels. It’s great for baking or to sweeten beverages.

Coconut oil - The perfect alternative to butter, shortening, or other cooking oils. It won't raise cholesterol and it’s more bioavailable than other fats. Coconut oil is naturally stable and needs no preservatives or refrigeration.

Dextrose - A neutral-tasting carbohydrate source used to add carb calories to protein shakes or recovery and endurance drinks.

Erythritol – A natural sugar alcohol that has the taste, appearance, and texture of regular sugar, but a very low caloric value and a negligible impact on blood sugar levels. It’s a great substitute for granulated sugar in any recipe.

Fructose - Sometimes called "fruit sugar" because it occurs naturally in fruits, looks like sugar but is about 1/3 sweeter, so you typically use less than regular sugar. It has a much lower impact on blood sugar levels than table sugar.

Lecithin - Lecithin is a mixture of healthy fats that occurs naturally in egg yolks and soy. Lecithin is full of brain-boosting lipids like phosphatidyl choline and phosphatidyl serine, and may also improve cholesterol levels. In the kitchen, lecithin is a great emulsifier; it helps fats and oils disperse throughout a food mixture like cake or baking mixes, giving them a smooth, uniform texture. Lecithin is tasteless, so it won't alter the flavor of foods. Lecithin granules are the most cost-effective form. They dissolve easily in the presence of other fats/oils.

High Protein Baking Mix – Protein is needed to support vital brain and muscle functions. High protein pancakes are a great way to start your day and give your body the protein it needs to function at its best.

Stevia - Stevia is a plant sweetener that doesn’t provide any carbohydrate calories. Stevia has a slight aftertaste, so it tends to work better in some applications (teas and coffee) than in others (baking, protein shakes).

Xylitol - Xylitol is another sugar alcohol like Erythriol. It has a similar taste and appearance to sugar, but far fewer calories and a much smaller impact on blood sugar. In fact, it has been shown to inhibit tooth decay and is used in many candies and chewing gums.
