Loving Earth's Chocolate Buckinis are a wholefood mix crafted from a blend of Raw Cacao and Coconut with a selection of superfoods and fruit to give it a sweet and tangy twist.
What are Buckinis you ask? Loving Earth invented the term to describe their activated buckwheat. Buckinis are grain-free, gluten-free, crunchy bundles of goodness that don't go soggy in cold milk. And they're not wheat, in fact they're not even a grain- they're a protein-packed seed.
Why do they activate their buckwheat? Well, most cereals are puffed or toasted under extreme heat or pressure, which destroys their nutrients. Loving Earth prefer to make the most of their ingredients, so they activate them. Activation is the same as sprouting- soaking the seeds in filtered water to release the enzyme inhibitors, bringing the seeds to life. Enzyme inhibitors exist to keep the seed dormant as it waits for the right conditions to germinate. This means they also prevent the nutrients in the seed from being released into your body when you eat it. Activating makes it easier for your body to absorb the nutrients.
Activation starts the sprouting process, removing the enzyme inhibitors and making the nutrients available to nourish your body. The final step is to dehydrate the buckwheat, nuts and seeds at a low temperature. This preserves the vital nutrients and gives Loving Earth's Buckinis their crispy texture.
