Super hero of natural food: Cacao!
August 21, 2017

Super hero of natural food: Cacao!

Cacao or Cocoa a super food which basically is immensely beneficial to us and is higher in healthy agents compared to most other foods. Cacao has been known to benefit cardiovascular health, weight management, and cholesterol and to be filled with antioxidants, magnesium and other vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
 

How this wonder food is made to perform like a blunder food!
 

Cacao beans in India are traditionally grown for the mass market. That means large companies buy the majority of the beans and thechocolate made by them has very little cacao (it can be as low as 10%) and is filled with vegetable fats, sugar, milk and other preservatives there is little focus on the quality and taste of the cacao bean. The main focus for these companies is the yield or productivity of the trees than quality.
 

Unfortunately the majority of chocolate sold in India today is actually milk chocolates which contains very little cacao, lots of milk and sugar and is full of chemicals and preservatives. Also, it almost always contains a product called Compound. Compound is essentially a vegetable fat that is used to replace the cacao butter in chocolate. Compound is cheaper than cacao butter, tastes terrible, and is of inferior quality and quite frankly it is not chocolate!
 

The large company doesn’t involve farmers in any post-harvest procedures such as fermentation and drying and these procedures are directly related to the flavour development of the cacao bean. Farmers often sell the wet beans directly to the large companies for very low prices. The larger companies buy all the beans (good and bad) because quality is not important for the product they produce. That means there is little incentive for the farmer to improve the farming techniques or the flavour of bean.
 

Cacao should be kept as close to the natural form as possible to get all the health benefit it offers. Actual chocolates are the ones with minimal ingredients and remains dark without milk and less sugar. The ones which are organically and naturally made fromorganic beansorganic sugar and without chemicals, preservatives or emulsifiers are far better in taste and health preserving the wonderful flavour of the beans and also the health promoting agents found in cacao.
 

The real chocolatiers like Mason & Co directly work with farmerswho are interested in improving their cacao crop and producing superior quality beans that they can sell for a fair price.
 

Cacao can be had in the form of Cacao powder and cacao nibs that are used as ingredients in various food and beverage recipes likedrinking chocolates, cocoa butter, tisane (Choco Tea) etc.

Why we must use organic floor cleaners and laundry detergents?
August 12, 2017

Why we must use organic floor cleaners and laundry detergents?

Cleanliness is next to Godliness.
- We all want neat and clean houses, don’t we?

Imagine a house full of germs and bacteria?
Can we expect the entire family to be free of illness?

A clean house will definitely lead to a healthy family. Have you ever given a thought on organic floor cleaners and laundry detergents?

We are so easily carried away by the television advertisement, such that we hardly emphasize on organic and chemical ones. The moment we use these chemical detergents, our entire house has an aroma, and we love that. We are mentally satisfied that our house is clean and free of germs. But the greatest disadvantage of using these products is the chemicals that are released in the air. They are a threat to our health.

Thus, to play on a safer side, organic floor cleaners and laundry detergents must be used.

Here are few advantages of using the organic floor cleaners and laundry detergents:

Protects children:
If you are a family where pet and kids are also a part of it, you definitely must use organic detergents and cleaners. The adults can still tolerate the chemical as the organs are developed and filter the waste, however it is not the case with the children. Their organs are at a developing stage and they are more prone to chemical damages. They do not have the higher capacity to eliminate toxins. Thus, avoid chemical detergents completely for the safety of your kids.

Did you know that the average home has more chemicals than the average chemistry laboratory? Strange, isn’t it?

Damages environment:
Most of the households are full of plastics which harms the environment. These plastic bottles and other stuffs when mixed with the land affects their fertility. 

Also when these plastics are exposed to chemical detergents, they become more harmful. Thus, an organic detergent safeguards the environment as there aren't any chemicals released in the air, water and land as pollutants.

Did you know that there were more than 72,000 chemicals produced since World war II.  They have been derived from petroleum and coal tar and have not been tested. Thus, as a result they harm the human life and environment majorly.

Safety:
Safety is our priority. The organic detergents are free of chemicals and goes through several process before getting launched in the market. They do not harm the skin and health. There are many people who are allergic to synthetic products and as a result develops health issues. This can be prevented by using organic products.

Tips:

  • Educate yourself and spread a word regarding the usage of organic detergents and floor and toilet cleaners.
  • Minimize the quantity of these detergents so that you can save money. A small drop of detergent will serve your purpose.
  • Use gloves and other necessary accessories if you are allergic to any.
  • Always read the labels before making a purchase. Check the manufacturing and expiry date.
  • Do not use these detergents near fire.


Still giving a thought about switching to organic detergents from synthetic ones? Yes, it is high time, you have given a thought about it.

Most of the time we are so obsessed with eating healthy, such that we do not think anything other than healthy diet.

It is time for a change now.

The organic detergents are way superior to the non-organic ones. They are easily available in the supermarket. Certain companies have dedicated themselves completely to the organic sector such that the demand and supply is balanced.

Do let us know your experience after using the organic floor cleaners and laundry detergents. We would be glad to hear.
