At SUTRA, we believe the term ‘superfood’ is overused, and used incorrectly. The definition should be used to describe nutrient and antioxidant-rich food and beverages. But ingredients and health food products are now using the name ‘superfoods’, while also including insane amounts of sugar, flour, oils, and other fillers that cancel out the amazing health benefits of the superfood ingredient itself.
At SUTRA, we pride ourselves in being transparent about the ingredients we use in our superfood lattes. When we list raw cacao, red reishi mushroom, and all of our other ingredients, what you see is what you get. Real, unprocessed, delicious superfood ingredients without all of the added garbage and fillers that other brands use so often.
Which brings us back to superfood mixes. The title itself may cause you to think that you’re doing wonders for your body by using the mix, but this isn’t always the case. Like other superfood products, the superfood mix you just bought or are thinking of purchasing, may have unnecessary and potentially harmful additives.
To help you navigate the world of superfood mixes, we’ve gathered up a list of both the good and the bad mixes on the market, and how to choose the best one for you.
