What is a ‘superfood’?

The term ‘superfood’ applies to nutrient-rich natural foods that have a proven benefit  for health and well-being that has been approved by EU law. 

Superfoods include fruits, vegetables, seeds and grains. Some may be eaten as healthy snacks, most are used as ingredients to boost the flavour and nutritional value of juices, smoothies, cereals, baked goods and everyday dishes.

The superfoods sector is generally identified with rare and exotic plants such as goji berries, baobab fruit, acai berries, maca roots to name a few, though there are many conventional foods that are nutrient-rich too. 

We don’t claim to hold the monopoly on nutrient-rich food. But we do know there is a growing consumer desire for organic, healthy food and new taste experiences, and that is precisely what Supernutrients offers.
