The Relationship between our Brain and our Gut

Posted by FFF FFF on May 15, 2019 3:30:41 PM

For every cell in your body, there are 9 bacteria in your gut (3). This community of bacteria is what we call our gut microbiome. It plays a very important role in our health and in our response to certain foods. Research is difficult because no 2 gut microbiomes are the same: every human has a microbiome that is as different as their DNA. This is because we all have a unique exposure to different bacteria depending on the microbes we inherit from our mother during birth (yes this really does occur in the way you are thinking – babies are born with a sterile gut and the first colonisers are bacteria from the mother’s birth canal and faeces) as well as through breastmilk. Further colonisation occurs by exposure to the environment, and the foods we eat.

FFF Favourite Vegan Protein Sources

Posted by FFF FFF on Jan 21, 2019 3:08:49 PM

Dietary protein is broken down in the digestive tract into amino acids. There are 21 amino acids of which 9 are essential. Essential amino acids cannot be synthesised by the human body, and therefore need to be obtained through food. Food sources are considered a ‘complete protein’ if they have all 9 essential amino acids in the right amounts. Complete proteins are more often found in animal based foods but it’s not impossible to get these from plants using clever combinations of varying plant based proteins. This is where the famous beans and rice combination comes from. On their own, rice and beans provide some essential amino acids, but together they form a complete protein, providing all 9 essential amino acids.
We’ve provided some of our favourite vegan protein sources below, alongside their protein content per 100g to help you on your way:
