What's wrong with our everyday staples? Our favourite white rice, white bread, noodles and buns are refined carbohydrates that are rapidly digested, resulting in rapid spikes in blood sugar levels after meals. It is nutrient deficient, stripped of almost all fibre, vitamins and minerals leading to food coma and fatigue. This increases the risk of type 2 diabetes as well.
Fibre is an essential part of our diets. It helps us feel full, keeps blood sugar stable, and is good for heart health. But most of us aren't getting nearly as much as we should. Even within high fibre options in the market such as wholemeal bread, the fibre quality may not be as good.
Understanding the food science behind it, we constantly work on improving the nutrition quality of these refined carbohydrates - increase fibre content, lower glucose release - to manage our blood glucose levels and risk of diabetes, without compromising on its great taste, texture and appearance.
The end result? Alchemy Fibre. Plant-based. Same great taste. Healthier and nutritious.
All the good, minus the bad. All around better.
