Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What the heck is collagen?Q: Where does Primal Kitchen collagen come from?
A: Collagen is the protein that holds everything in your body together. It makes up about 30% of all the protein in the human body, and is found in your bones, tendons, ligaments, connective tissues and skin, and plays various roles in your overall health. Collagen production naturally declines with age, reducing the structural integrity of the skin and instigating the weakening of cartilage in joints. You can help make up for decreased collagen production by eating collagen sourced from grass-fed bovines pasture-raised in Brazil.
Q: Why should I eat collagen?
A: The collagen protein used in Primal Kitchen Dark Chocolate Almond Bars is collegen hydrolysate from grass-fed cows, which is broken down into individual amino acids and easier to absorb and digest, so it's a preferable alternative to taking collagen in, say, capsule form. Furthermore, it's 100% protein, and people all know the benefits of ingesting clean protein.
They searched all over the world to find a premium source of collagen from certified grass-fed cows. They found the perfect source in Brazil.Q: What is monk fruit?
Also called Luo Han Goa, monk fruit is a Chinese herb cultivated for centuries by Buddhist Luohan monks. Much like stevia, it's a delicious and natural way to sweeten without all the calories of sugar.Q: What are net carbs?
You determine the net carb impact of a food by subtracting the grams of fiber from the total grams of carbohydrates. Fiber slows the digestion of carbohydrates and reduces the glycemic burden on the body.
About Primal Kitchen
His name is Mark Sisson, and he is a former elite endurance athlete who has made health and fitness his life's work. Since trading in his professional running shoes 26 years ago, he has written a series of best-selling health and fitness books, designed natural state-of-the-art, health-enhancing nutritional supplements and educational diet and exercise systems, and has published Mark'sDailyApple.com, the world's most popular ancestral health website. His mission is to empower more people to take responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing and critically rethinking everything people assumed to be true about health and wellness. Primal Kitchen expands this mission, bringing uncompromisingly delicious, high quality, nutrient dense sauces and dressings to kitchens everywhere. In the world of real food, it's often what you put on your food that keeps it interesting. Join Mark on his mission to help 10 million people get healthy!
For 20 years now, I've enjoyed a daily 20-ingredient salad made up of turkey, salmon or tuna, sometimes some nuts like almonds or walnuts, along with tons of veggies like bell peppers, broccoli, cucumbers and artichokes. Although Mark loves his trusty balsamic vinegar and olive oil topping, he has also searched far and wide for healthy and tasty salad dressing alternatives. Unfortunately, he's run into one of two scenarios. Either the dressings are laden with industrial seed and vegetable oils like canola, sunflower, corn and soy oila - the primary instigators in all manner of chronic disease - or they boast out-of-this-world health and ingredient claims but tasteless, bland "flavor." Mark noticed the same dearth exists in condiments like ketchup, mayo and BBQ sauce. Sure, tasty enough options exist, but they all compromise your health and longevity!
So he set to work cooking up Primal-inspired salad dressings and condiments full of healthful, natural fats, superfoods, antioxidant-rich, high-ORAC-scoring herbs and spices, with no offensive, synthetic vegetable and seed oils and no artificial colors, flavors or fillers! The first product he set out to reinvent was mayonnaise - the holy grail of healthy fats. The complete lack of acceptable mayonnaise in-store today is appalling. Most options contain canola oil, soybean oil, sugar, HFCS, the list goes on. For Primal Kitchen Mayo, Mark chose to use one of his favorite superfoods - avocado oil - instead of canola or soybean oil. Combine that with organic, cage-free eggs, organic vinegar and salt and they've got one awesome tasting mayonnaise! Healthy mayo, who knew?
Now there's no more sacrificing flavor for health. All Primal Kitchen ingredients are selected according to the strictest standards of taste, natural healthfulness and phytonutrient potency. Primal Kitchen is among life's little affordable luxuries and created to be used extravagantly, so pour it on generously. The days of "easy on the salad dressing" are officially over! Make every bite a taste sensation.
Why Aren't They 100% Organic?
You see, while organic is non-negotiable for some ingredients like eggs, it's just not worth the huge added expense for certain others. Avocados, for instance, don't need to be bought organic, because pesticides can't penetrate their tough skin no matter how hard they try! Plus, organic avocado oil costs almost four times as much as non-organic, so you'd be paying four times as much for a jar of mayo with no appreciable added benefit. Now, if they wanted to rip you off just for the organic claim, they could have opted for organic canola oil. But that's just not their style…they'd rather mix non-organic, quality ingredients when appropriate with select organic nutrients, rather than contaminate their foods.
Grok is the oft-cited star of their Paleolithic backdrop, the poster-persona of the Primal Kitchen itself. Think of him as the non-gender specific collective archetype of the typical hunter-gatherer who thrived on evolutionary tried and true lifestyle behaviors: diet, exercise, sleep, stress, etc. And although Grok hearkens back to the cave-dwelling days, by modern standards he's the pinnacle of physiological vigor. Picture a tall, strapping figure: lean, ripped, agile. And as for what's underneath? An enviable workup: low to no systemic inflammation, low insulin and blood glucose readings, healthy (i.e. ideally functional) cholesterol and triglyceride levels. "Hmm," you say, closing your menu. "I'll have what he's having."
