Sorrell Ridge Jam

Sorrell Ridge Jam

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Gluten Free

We love this jam because it is one of the only jams on the market without added sugar. Sorrell Ridge waits until their fruits are perfectly ripe and then harvests them at their peak quality and flavor. Tastes great too. Try using this jam in our Almond Torte Cookie recipe. They would get 5 stars if the berries were organic.

EmergenC

EmergenC

Dietary Needs:
None

EmergenC  vitamin C comes from ascorbic acid, which is by far the most common type of Vitamin C that you'll find in foods and nutritional supplements like this. Ascorbic acid is the antioxidant protector of vitamin C and not the complete profile. The analogy would be like saying you ate an egg, but really only eating the shell, which is why we much prefer Vitamin-C from food-based sources. It is highly likely that ascorbic acid vitamin C comes from corn. Vitamin C is needed for all connective tissue, which is what holds up and keeps together all other tissues. It is also crucial in collagen production. The ascorbic acid in EmergenC (or ascorbic acid in general) acts as a anti-histamine, reducing swelling and other symptoms of colds which provides a short term gain. EmergenC does provide a non-caffeinated energy boost with 1,000 milligrams of non-acidic Vitamin-C along with B Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 & 12. The body does not absorb vitamins as well from synthesized vitamins vs. food-based vitamins. EmergenC also contains maltodextrin, which could either come from corn or tapioca. It is much better to have maltodextrin come from tapioca, since we already have entirely too much corn in our food supply. Check out Ultima sports recovery powder as an upgrade from EmergenC.

Yummi Bears

Yummi Bears

Dietary Needs:
None

When it comes to childrens vitamins this is a huge upgrade from Flinstones vitamins. Yummi Bears has several products including wholefood, vitamin C, echinacea, calcium & vitamin D, DHA, fiber, vitamin D3, Omega 3-6-9, multi-vitamin, and child bright am & pm formula. This is an option to use if your child isn't eating very much or very healthy choices. However, the first two ingredients are glucose syrup and cane juice giving one serving 4 grams of sugar. They use fractionated coconut oil to prevent sticking and fractionated oils are broken fats. As a result they get 2.5 stars (but Flinstones wouldn't get any).
