Are Mabel & Joy Boosters suitable for pregnant/breastfeeding woman?

Open tab

One of the factors behind creating Mabel & Joy Superfood Boosters was the overwhelming all-day sickness I was experiencing when pregnant. 

However, advice concerning Maca, which is present within Mabel & Joy's Restore Organic Berry Superfood Booster and Cleanse Organic Greens Superfood Booster suggest that it may affect the hormonal system. If you are receiving treatment for any hormonal issues or you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please consult your naturopath or medical practitioner before taking.

Mabel & Joy Superfood Boosters do not contain any caffeine or weight loss accelerants, and are focused on pure, plant-based ingredients.

Open tab

The Science

Are your blends natural?

Open tab

Mabel & Joy's Superfood Boosters are made up of organic superfoods and fruit and vegetable powders, and do not contain any fillers or bulking agents. You will see that certain fruit powders do contain an anti-caking agent, silica (551) preventing it from clumping in the packet. 

Silicon dioxide (SiO2), also known as silica, is a natural compound made of two of the Earth’s most abundant materials: silicon (Si) and oxygen (O2). It’s found naturally in water, plants, animals, and the earth, in fact the earth’s crust is 59% silica. It makes up more than 95% of known rocks on the planet. When you sit on a beach, it’s silicon dioxide in the form of sand that gets between your toes.

What is the difference between soluble and insoluble fibre?

Open tab

Nutrition Australia puts it best:

Fibre is the indigestible parts of plant foods, such as vegetables, fruits, grains, beans and legumes. It is type of a carbohydrate that helps keep our digestive systems healthy.

There are three different types of fibre which all have different functions and health benefits.

Soluble fibre, found in Cleanse, helps to slow the emptying process in our stomachs, which helps you feel fuller. It also helps to lower cholesterol and stabilise your blood glucose levels.

 

Insoluble fibre absorbs water to help to soften the contents of our bowels and support regular bowel movements. It also helps to keep us full and keep the bowel environment healthy.

Insoluble fibre is found in wholegrain breads and cereals, nuts, seeds, wheat bran and the skin of fruit and vegetables.

What is the difference between a prebiotic and a probiotic?

Open tab

The short response is, probiotics are beneficial bacteria, while prebiotics are food for these bacteria.

Probiotics are live bacteria found in certain foods or supplements. They can provide numerous health benefits.

Prebiotics are substances from types of carbs (mostly fibre) that humans can't digest. The beneficial bacteria in your gut eat this fibre.

The gut bacteria, collectively referred to as the gut flora or gut microbiota, perform many important functions in the body. Eating balanced amounts of both pro- and prebiotics can help ensure that you have the right balance of these bacteria, which should improve your health.

The Ingredients

Are hemp seeds safe to eat?

Open tab

Yes. Although banned from consumption in Australia until 2018, it's hard to avoid this nutritionally power-packed superfood now!

Hemp seeds contain almost as much protein as soybeans. In every 30g of seeds, or about a tablespoon, there are 9.46g of protein.

Relatively few plant-based foods are complete sources of protein, making hemp seeds a valuable addition to a vegetarian or vegan diet. You can find hemp seeds in our Cleanse Superfood Booster.

Nutrition

What are health claims and are they regulated?

Open tab

Food businesses have strict regulations about what they can 'claim', as any benefits must be supported with scientific evidence.

You will notice our careful use of adjectives, such as 'A good/excellent source' or 'Contributes to'; this is part of the strict governance of claiming. There is no room for colourful language and flowery prose when it comes to health!

Mabel & Joy's health claims are supported by the fact all our products are tested by the National Measurement Institute. Our benefits are all outlined in bullet points in our product descriptions.

Nutrition content claims and health claims are voluntary statements made by food businesses on labels and in advertising about a food. Standard 1.2.7 sets out the rules for food businesses choosing to make nutrition content claims and health claims.

Nutrition content claims are claims about the content of certain nutrients or substances in a food, such as low in fat or good source of calcium. These claims will need to meet certain criteria set out in the Standard. For example, with a ‘good source of calcium’ claim, the food needs to contain at least the amount of calcium specified in the Standard.

Health claims refer to a relationship between a food and health rather than a statement of content.

There are two types of health claims:

General level health claims refer to a nutrient or substance in a food, or the food itself, and its effect on health. For example: calcium for healthy bones and teeth. They must not refer to a serious disease or to a biomarker of a serious disease.

High level health claims refer to a nutrient or substance in a food and its relationship to a serious disease or to a biomarker of a serious disease. For example: Diets high in calcium may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in people 65 years and over.
