Is there a such thing as a healthy condiment?
The answer is an astounding ..........YES!
But why and how?
Most condiments in the USA are made with Tomatoes, which are a legit superfood ...... packed with Lycopene!!! Additionally, Tomatoes are rich in vitamins A, C, B3 and minerals potassium, magnesium, phosphorus; and small amounts of calcium and Vitamin E and other B vitamins.
Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that quenches free radicals from inflammation and lowers risk factors associated with Heart disease, obesity, and specific cancers.
Why doesn't anyone know about the health benefits and power of Tomatoes and lycopene ?
The information is not marketed because the form in which we mostly consume tomato material in the USA is unhealthy due to the high sodium content and outdated processing methods.
What properties can make a condiment healthy?
Answer: 1) Bioavailable Lycopene Answer: 2) Low Sodium Content
What makes Num Num Sauce a healthy condiment?
The Num Num Sauce founder and lead Food Scientist developed several bioprocessing technologies that collectively allow for a reduction in sodium between 50% - 90% compared to ketchup or bbq sauce, while improving desirable flavor profiles and absorption of lycopene.
What does all of this mean?
It means that we now have the technology to evolve the application of condiments from flavor enhancement products to nutrient delivery vehicles with a functional health promoting benefit...... hence the name Functional Foods or Functional Condiments is born!
