Mix it Up with Vegetarian Protein!

12.15.10    |   Category: Sheffa Blog    |   Tags: ,

Protein performs countless invaluable functions in the body, from metabolism to tissue growth and repair. It’s comprised of amino acids, twenty all together, eight of which our bodies cannot manufacture and are thus considered “essential”. We must get these essential amino acids from the foods we eat. Nearly all whole-foods contain protein, and most animal foods contain all eight essential amino acids and are therefore considered “complete” sources of protein.

Proteins from plant sources are considered “incomplete”, with few exceptions like soybeans, quinoa, amaranth and buckwheat. The solution? Combine different sources of protein in ones diet to ensure that all essential amino acids are supplied. Even if combining different vegetarian sources of protein only, like legumes, grains, seeds and nuts, you’re pretty sure to get plenty of complete protein. Sheffa’s products are a great combination of plant-based foods that are a rich source of complete vegetarian protein.

Dairy Free…”Moo-ve” over Milk!

09.27.10    |   Category: Sheffa Blog    |   Tags: ,

Sheffa’s products are vegan and thus free of dairy and any other animal derived ingredients. This is great news for people with dairy allergies, lactose intolerance or for those who keep kosher. We imagine it’s also good news for many cows, goats and sheep!

Vegan…Part-Timers Wanted!

09.08.10    |   Category: Sheffa Blog    |   Tags: ,

The word “vegan” (pronounced “veegan”) was coined in 1944 by Donald Watson, founder of the Vegan Society, by combining the first three and last two letters of vegetarian. The vegan lifestyle, a practice of abstaining from the consumption of foods or products derived from animals, is one of the strictest forms of vegetarianism. None of the ingredients found in Sheffa’s products come from animals or the labor of animals. But one doesn’t have to be vegan to enjoy tasty vegan foods! Maybe you’ve heard of the “Meatless Monday” movement, where non-vegetarians are adding one or more vegetarian meals to their weekly menus for health and environmental reasons? How about stepping up the challenge by also adding “Vegan Vednesday”? It works if you say it with a Swedish accent!
