In this Inca'cao Pistachio Chocolate Hazelnut spread you will find:
10% Caprylic acid (C8) derived from coconut: unlike long-chain fatty acids, MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides) bypass the gastrointestinal tract entirely and go directly to the liver for ketone production. It is also called 'the glucose of fats'. There are eleven different fatty acids in coconut. Four of them are MCTs: capronic acid (C6), caprylic acid (C8), capric acid (C10) and lauric acid (C12). C12 is technically an MCT, but the body processes it as a long-chain fatty acid. While fasting or eating a diet similar to fasting, such as a low-carb or keto diet, the body becomes catabolic (breaking down) and will naturally produce ketone bodies in the liver. There are three main types of ketone bodies: first the body makes acetoacetate (AcAc), then it converts it to beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) and when there is enough BHB, the rest explodes into acetone which we exhale or urinate. C8 is the most bioavailable to make ketones in the liver and gives the body an extra boost. Once the fat is modified, even in a state of catabolism, BHB is muscle protective. This is why you should not fast if you are not fat adapted because of the increased muscle loss (muscle protein converting to glucose).
10% Collagen: after water, collagen is the most abundant nutrient in the body. It makes up 35% of the protein content of the whole body. After the age of 25, the production of our own collagen decreases, which is why exogenous collagen is so crucial for long life. It is needed for bile production (33% glycine) to metabolize fat, skin elasticity and repair, your bones are 60% minerals but 90% of the protein matrix in your bones is collagen,... Our diet lacks collagen because today we eat mostly muscle meat rich in the amino acid methionine and poor in glycine. To counteract methionine, glycine is needed. Collagen is rich in amino acids of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline.
10% Ghee: we produce our own ghee, the ayruvedic one. This is well tolerated by people with lactose or casein sensitivity, packed with fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K2), Omega 3 (DHA and EPA), conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a natural trans fat in cancer protective benefits and reduced fat mass in healthy individuals. It is the richest source of the short-chain fatty acid 'butyrate' which nourishes healthy gut bacteria.
Macadamia oil: Omega 7 (palmitoleic acid) is a lipokine (king of fats). They work together with omega 3 and determine what omega 3 does in the body. Cold water fish contain a lot of omega 7 and 3 and this is why the omega 3 in those fish is so bioavailable to our bodies, because of the Omega 7. Palmitoleic acid dramatically reduces appetite and does so through the use of cholecystokinin (satiety hormone). They also improve overall insulin sensitivity (improved utilization of carbohydrates) by preventing beta cell apoptosis of insulin cells (cells that work with insulin don't die) and better utilization of insulin so that carbohydrates are not stored as much as fat. It also helps muscle cells use insulin better. This means carbohydrates are used more productively in the muscles and communicate better, rather than having elevated blood sugar levels for long periods of time. It causes a huge reduction in CRP (C-reactive protein), dramatic reduction in triglycerides, low oxidation of LDL, increased HDL. People should have a ratio of 6: 1: 1 monounsaturated fatty acid (MUFA) to polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and saturated fatty acids (SFA). Macadamia nut oil contains 85% MUFA and about 24% of that is palmitoleic acid. Monounsaturated fats, MTC and omega 3 (especially EPA and DHA) are a dream team for nutrition when it comes to losing body fat.
Pure pistachio: 100 g of pistachio nuts contain 71 mg of choline. Choline is crucial for mental cognition. It also contains 23 mg of gamma-tocopherol (vit E family). Pistachios are also a good source of vit B6 which is crucial for cellular functioning and the nervous system. Low glycemic index: apart from type 1 and 2 diabetes, more than 50% of the population has low insulin resistance. Insulin is the most dominant hormone and is absolutely crucial to health, it is responsible for multiple functions including glycolysis (glucose oxidation). The counter hormone is "glucagon" which is responsible for lipolysis (fat oxidation). When insulin is high, glucagon secretion is completely suppressed in healthy individuals. Prebiotic soluble fiber Polydextrose: This has a low caloric value: about 1 kcal/g, and it is widely used as a filler and to replace the structure and texture of sucrose (table sugar). This soluble fiber has a glycemic index (GI) of 4 to 7. In contrast to other fibres such as: soluble chicory fibre (known as inulin with a GI of 14, maximum consumption 60 g/day), soluble corn fibre (known as resistant maltodextrin with GI of 25, maximum consumption 4)
|Diet Type||Low Carb|
|Protein diet: usable in fase||1, 2, 3, 4, After the protein diet|
CHOCOLATE PISTACHE PASTA WITH SOFT FIBRES: prebiotic soluble fibre (polydextrose), pistachio nuts, erythritol, coconut capric acid 10% (MTC oil), collagen 10%, ghee 10% (clarified butter), cocoa butter, D-ribose, macadamia oil, cocoa powder, sea salt, emulsifier: sunflower lecithin, natural sweetener: thaumatin. Produced in a factory that also processes: nuts, gluten, coconut, eggs, milk, peanuts and walnuts, sesame seeds. Excessive consumption may have a laxative effect.
Based on 100g:
* D-ribose is pharmacologically an anti-sugar and does not contain glucose or fructose, but should be listed as a sugar in supplements. D-ribose has a negative glycemic index and lowers plasma sugar levels
When you count your carbs you normally always subtract the polyols from the total carbs.
