What else could you ask for in a delicious crumb?? ...Well, you might ask for an ingredients list..
Voila! In a bag of the Original Nut Crumbs you will find: Pistachios, cashews, almonds, salt, and pepper. (Ingredients vary based on flavor)
Nut Crumbs were created on the promise of healthy living and yummy food, using only the best ingredients.
So how do these ingredients benefit your body? Good question!
Let’s start with the largest contributor - Nuts!
A favorite of our squirrely friends, nuts have many human health benefits as well.
Nuts are jam-packed with fiber, fats (the healthy kind), and protein. Pistachios, cashews, and almonds, all of which can be found in Nut Crumbs products, rank among the top 5 best nuts, containing the most beneficial nutrients.
Loaded with protein
Nuts are packed with so much protein that they’re classified among meat, fish, poultry, and eggs and are used by many to increase their protein intake. Vegans and vegetarians (and anyone lacking protein in their diet) rejoice! If you haven’t added nuts as a staple in your pantry, what are you waiting for?
Vitamins and minerals
While the type and amount of vitamins and nutrients vary from nut to nut, pistachios, cashews, and almonds each pack a powerful punch with the addition of calcium, vitamin E, vitamin C, iron, and potassium into your diet.
Contribute to healthy blood pressure and cholesterol
Helping to stave off high blood pressure and cholesterol - Nuts contain a good amount of unsaturated fats which have been shown to lower those bad cholesterol levels.
Participate in the fight against inflammation and reduce the risk of blood clots and heart attacks. Nuts contain fatty acids from Omega-3 which have been shown to prevent heart arrhythmias as well as other heart complications.
We may not be the star of the show, but we sure pack a punch on your taste buds and your health!
Salt & Pepper
This dynamic duo appears in all nut crumbs products. While it’s a good idea to monitor the amount of salt in your diet, salt does play an important role in the function of your body. A triple threat, it regulates your thyroid hormones, promotes hydration which is essential for organ function, and prevents low blood pressure. Pepper is another power player in that it’s rich in antioxidants, has been shown to improve brain function, and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Parsely, Basil & Garlic Powder
The classic Italian trio, these ingredients make their debut in none other than Italian crumbs.
Have a little sniffle come springtime? It’s said that parsley may be the perfect thing to help clear that up. It also contains fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, and potassium. Whew! That’s one powerful leafy green.
Basil might be the best friend your skin never knew it had. With powerful acne fighting properties, along with vitamin A, K, and C, I know I’ll appreciate this popular Italian seasoning a little more the next time it's on my plate.
Last but not least, garlic powder. This little ingredient is a well-known friend to the immune system. Along with contributing to the fight against the common cold, it may also reduce blood pressure and improve cholesterol levels.
Paprika, Cayenne Pepper, Chili Powder & Red Pepper
Spice, spice, baby...Can you guess which flavor of nut crumbs these ingredients contribute to? If you guessed Spicy, you’re right!
In this group, paprika contributes to healthy eyesight and lower risk of cataracts, protects against cancer, and helps to control blood sugar.
Cayenne pepper has been shown to reduce hunger, boost metabolism and may serve as a pain reliever.
Chili pepper helps to alleviate migraine headaches, decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes, and can help improve digestion.
Red pepper contains more than 200 percent of your daily vitamin C needs… wow. That alone is enough reason to incorporate it into your diet, but it doesn’t stop there. It’s also loaded with folate and vitamin B6, helps burn calories, and promotes healthy eyesight.
These firey ingredients sure pull their weight!
Coconut flakes & Curry Powder
The makeup of the one and only Coconut Curry Crumbs.
Arthritis and Alzheimer’s are no friend of curry, it’s said that this spice may help stave off these conditions with regular consumption. It’s also great for your heart, metabolism, and cholesterol.
Coconut flakes - We saved the sweetest for last. Besides the amazing texture and flavor, these flakes are loaded with fiber, iron, zinc, manganese, phosphorus, calcium, and potassium. Whew! Is that all? ….no. It also aids in digestion.
At this point, if you’re not convinced that these are the healthiest all natural bread crumb alternatives out there, you might need to eat more pepper, it helps with brain health.
