By Fernando Ramirez, Natural Prod- ucts Entrepreneur Why did we make this product? If you go to a store, whether it is nat- ural, organic, conventional, club or any type of food retail outlet, you will probably skip the jams and jellies sec- tion. If you really love sweets, then you may stop by, but still feeling guilty, you will grab the same sugary and junk products, mostly made with high fructose corn syrup, or if on a diet, perhaps the ones made with su- cralose or artificial sweeteners. That is just the way it has been for the last decades: no real food options out there; even less, healthy ones. So, the revolution we have seen in milks, where dairy has lost terrain to soy- bean, almond, coconut and all types of milks, or in the breads, where gluten has lost to gluten-free products, or sugary junk cereals loosing space to healthier alternatives, such as ancient grains, whole grains or low sugar ce- reals and granolas, has not been seen in the jams and jellies, until now. We decided it was time to bring a health- ier option and change the curve. The Basis of Our Concept The basis of our concept is that we make the fruit spread using natural and healthy chia seeds instead of in- dustrially made pectin. Is there any- thing wrong with pectin? Well, no, but the pectin used in jams is not natural, and our bodies are just not made to eat ar- tificial things. We decided to use a cre- ative and innovative way to make a fruit spread, using a natural process of a beau- tiful seed: the chia seed. Chia seeds have a thin film made of mu- cilage. It is a substance that reacts natu- rally with water, and thickens by absorbing it. We use that natural property of the chia seed to make our fruit spread. The juice of the fruit actually becomes the gel that makes the jam. Doing it this way, we do not need pectin. Instead, the jam is made with the chia seed. Healthy chia seeds, full of Omega 3, fiber and protein, is a better alternative than industrially made pectin. As simple as that, but not only that. Chia seeds have a particular at- tribute, and it is that they help our metab- olism to slowly release sugars into our bloodstream, or slowly convert carbohy- drates into glucose, therefore avoiding the common sugar spike that our body expe- riences when eating sugars. Chia seeds go very well with sugars, so it is a perfect combination. Finally, the gel that helps us make the fruit spread is the same gel you find in aloe vera, mucilage. We end up with a beautiful and healthier product, and not only that, but delicious too. In addition, our Premium line (sweet- ened with organic agave nectar), gives us a low glycemic index, low calories and sugars (30 calories and five grams of sugar per serving of 18 grams).
