Biscuits for your Belly. Franjos Kitchen's 'biscuits for your belly' have been naturopathically designed and contain ingredients specifically chosen with pregnant mums in mind. Fibre, Omega 3, Iron, Calcium, B Vitamins, and Zinc are just some of the nutrients pregnant mums need, so Franjos Kitchen have made sure their bumpers contain ingredients naturally high in these nutrients. Their bumpers also contain ginger, which has been used for centuries for nausea.
Ginger has a specific affinity to the gut and digestion and traditionally loved by many to ease the nausea some get throughout their pregnancy. Wanting to up your fibre intake? When you eat the apricots in their bumpers, think dietary fibre, potassium, iron and antioxidants. Not to mention it adds a hint of sweetness. Franjos Kitchen bumpers also contain pumpkin kernels, walnuts, and flaxseeds. These babies deliver on a whole host of key minerals and fats essential during pregnancy. Zinc for cell growth and division, immunity and repair. Magnesium for your energy levels and also plant based Omega 3 and 6's which your baby is going to soak right up, not to forget your skin and hair. Franjos Kitchen also use tahini in their bumpers instead of milk. It does a lot more than hold these bumpers together. Being made 100% from sesame seeds means it is one of the richest sources of calcium you can get. It is such a crucial time during pregnancy that you load up on calcium to ensure you have adequate amounts post pregnancy. Franjos Kitchen chose coconut oil as the perfect fat for their cookies. Not only does it bring delicious flavour and texture to their bumpers but also it was the health benefits that drew them to it. It contains medium chain fatty acids, which is a very healthy and necessary saturated fat. It is fabulous for your metabolism, your skin, your hair and your overall organ health.
Their bumpers are dairy and egg free and don't contain cane or white sugars, only coconut sugar. They use organic spelt flour to bind the biscuit together, the gluten strand found in spelt flour is much shorter and more brittle and many people find it much easier to digest as a result. The fact too that it has not gone through the manipulation and change that common wheat has also adds to this advantage as our bodies recognise the grain much easier than wheat. Good digestion is vital for good health.
