Why Eat Raw?
There are many benefits to a raw based diet, the process of cooking can destroy much of the enzymes and nutrients in foods. By keeping their snacks raw and gently dried, not cooked, they are able to preserve more powerful nutrients for optimal nutritive benefits. Go Raw is proud to offer more than 50 delicious, raw sprouted snacks to help you make the right choice when looking for a nutritive snack on the go.
By sprouting and gently drying, not cooking, they unlock and preserve more powerful nutrients. This process also multiplies available proteins, enzymes and minerals, making good food easier to digest and allowing the nutrients to be more easily absorbed by the body.
All their seeds are hand sprouted at their own facility, and then dehydrated (not cooked!) so they keep the seeds "alive" and do not destroy all the nutrients that they just unlocked. The making of their snacks is closely monitored by real people for quality and consistency in every batch, every day. Go Raw has successfully created a line of over 45 tasty snack products you can enjoy.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does "raw" mean?
When food is labeled as raw, it means that none of the ingredients have been heated to a temperature above 118°F in order to preserve all of the enzymes contained in the plant that would be destroyed by the extreme heat of cooking.
Why eat raw food?
Heat changes the molecular structure of food, and destroys most or all of the food's beneficial enzymes and renders its nutrients mostly unusable. Enzymes help the body to properly digest and assimilate food for optimal nutritional value. Although the body is capable of making enzymes it is believed to have a finite amount, and over time, the amount of available enzymes diminishes. Studies show that consuming living enzymes (i.e. raw food) can help conserve the body's energy, reduce disease-causing stress and support a healthier digestive system.
What's the best way to transition to a raw food diet?
There's no one answer to this question-everyone is different, and therefore there's no formula that can be applied to every person. For instance, some people feel the need to research the lifestyle extensively before making the first move, while some people will be comfortable jumping right in.
What makes Go Raw different from other raw food companies?
At Go Raw they decided to never settle for less than the best. So they only use organic ingredients, NON GMO. They sprout their seeds to unlock powerful nutrients and facilitate digestion. Their snacks are made by hand, in their facility in California and then dehydrated, not cook, to keep all the nutrients and vitamins. Their snacks are also nut-free, gluten-free, vegan and do not have any added sugar or preservatives.
Do Go Raw products contain genetically modified ingredients?
The term GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism, at Go Raw, they refuse to use ingredients that have had their genetic material, or DNA, deliberately altered to carry new traits. A large movement has started against GMO foods due to concerns that they may impact human health and the environment's natural order.
What if you have an allergy to gluten?
They have their own dedicated production plant in Northern California that is completely gluten free, wheat free, nut free, dairy free and soy free, in addition to being raw, vegan and kosher. They don't make other companies' products, nor do they process any of their ingredients outside of their own plant-that way their customers can trust their products.
What does gluten free mean, and why is it important?
Their products are made without any ingredients containing gluten, a protein found in grains such as wheat and all Triticum species, including spelt, kamut, durum, barley, oats and their crossbreed varieties. Gluten is known to cause inflammation in the small intestine of people with celiac disease, and causes additional problems in digestion for many others.
Isn't buckwheat wheat?
No, the name is very misleading-it's not a cereal grain or a grass. Buckwheat is actually related to rhubarb and sorrel, and its "grain" is actually the dried fruit of the plant. However, when dried or ground, it acts very much like wheat and other cereal grains, which is why they use it in their granolas.
What if you have an allergy to nuts?
They have their own dedicated production plant in Northern California that is completely nut free, gluten free, wheat free, dairy free and soy free, in addition to being raw, vegan and kosher. Although it is not a true tree nut, if you have an allergy to coconut, please note that many of their products use coconut.
What is agave nectar?
Agave nectar is produced from the blue agave, a large plant with long, spiked leaves that thrives in southern Mexico. The nectar has a low glycemic profile, making it a healthy alternative to sugar and safe for some diabetics. As the plant is processed at low temperatures, under 118°F, agave nectar is considered a raw food. They only use 100% pure agave nectar from reputable sources.
Do you melt your chocolate?
Raw cacao is made by dehydrating the cacao bean (the fruit of the cacao tree) at low temperatures and then grinding it into a powder. Because it is a powder, the cacao can be mixed with other ingredients without heating it. By keeping the cacao raw, Go Raw's chocolate retains higher levels of anti-oxidants, all vitamin C, phenethylamine (or PEA, the neurotransmitter that gives you the warm, loving feelings), omega-6 fatty acids and seratonin. In fact, raw cacao contains the highest level of anti-oxidants, including magnesium and chromium, of any whole food.
