We Are Nutreat
Eating healthy shouldn’t be so hard. We all want to make healthy choices for ourselves and our families, but navigating the confusing landscape of food choices is often overwhelming. Food writer Michael Pollan said it best with his simple mantra, “Eat food, mostly plants, not too much.”
After decades working in the food, beverage and healthcare industries, we learned that food must - and can - be better. Food shouldn't be harmful to humans, nor become the source of chronic diseases. Although this may sound obvious, the food industry has gone down a slippery path that led to where we are today. Our population health is at risk, with obesity reaching almost 40% of adults and 1 in 3 Americans having either diabetes or pre-diabetes.
Our own family has a history of diabetes, which gave us first hand knowledge of this issue. Through Cátia's research as a psychologist, and experience as a mother of 3, she learned how the gut microbiome can play a powerful role in our overall health - including your mood! We decided to leverage our collective experience to do good through good food.
Research & Discovery
From Cátia's exhaustive experimentation emerged a line of delicious treats loaded with prebiotic fibers and beneficial superfoods. We don't like to brag, but the list of benefits is extensive: no sugar added, low-glycemic, excellent source of fiber, all-natural, plant-based, gluten-free, allergen-free (except for coconut), dairy-free, grain-free… Cornell University's Department of Food Science helped us create a process that ensures product integrity while retaining all the qualities of our wholesome ingredients. We offer these products, and the science behind them, to nourish, educate, motivate and inspire people like you towards a healthier life. Making good eating choices should be simple and not involve sacrificing taste or convenience.
We only use natural ingredients with a purpose rooted in science - no fillers, no nasties, no gimmicks. Our products will always be low glycemic and help promote a healthy digestion with plenty of prebiotic and dietary fiber. Oh, and portion control shouldn't feel like torture - with our prebiotic fibers, you will be satiated in no time. Welcome to a new, healthier way to treat yourself!
