At Beyond the Equator, we believe in our 5 Seed Butter and its powers so much that we completely restructured what we do in order to bring this amazing product and its ingredients to your store’s shelves. There are lots of reasons to love our nut-free butter, but here are a few to get you started.
It’s an Allergy-Friendly Alternative to Peanut Butter
The secret to why nut-free butter, almond butter, sunflower butter, our own unique five-seed butter, and others have risen in popularity over the last decade is two-fold. They’re delicious, and they’re a healthy substitute to peanut butter.
Peanut butter in itself isn’t inherently bad for you. As we’ve learned in the process of perfecting the best nut-free butter on the market, — a lot of what determines what foods are good for you lies in the process. Peanut butter is high in protein and dietary fiber, but depending on your brand of choice, it could have high amounts of saturated fat and added sugars.
With our 5 Seed Butter, you’ll get a tasty, nut-free peanut butter alternative that has less than half the saturated fat of popular peanut butter brands, both traditional and organic. Of course, the biggest health benefit is obvious with this allergen-friendly product.
Our 5 Seed Butter is free of the top eight allergens, including all nuts. This is a critical part of why peanut butter alternatives are earning their place in the market — it’s a comfort food most of us have grown to love that just happens to be deadly to some. At Beyond the Equator, we believe that everyone should know the salty, sweet, creamy goodness that nut and nut-free seed butter can provide. Our 5 Seed Butter gives everyone the chance.
High Protein, Low Carbs
While we’re not advising anyone to cut out carbs completely, there are some major benefits to a low-carb, high-protein diet, and that’s exactly the type of product you get with our 5 Seed Butter. A few benefits to low-carb diets include:
- A reduced appetite
- Faster initial weight loss
- Increased levels of good cholesterol
- Lower blood sugar
- Possibly lower blood pressure
- Improved brain function
High in Omega-3s
Omega-3s are one of the biggest reasons why Beyond the Equator exists today and why we’ve brought our nut-free butters to the world. When our founder went to Bolivia, he interacted with the people and got to know their diet. In the process, he realized that some of the healthiest ingredients in the world weren’t readily available to most Americans. The key nutrient in those ingredients? Omega-3s.
Bolivians are known for some of the best heart health in the world, and it’s widely believed that the reason for that is a diet that’s high in omega-3s. Omega-3s help improve cholesterol, reduce blood pressure, prevent blood clots, and prevent plaque buildup in blood vessels. Additional potential benefits that coincide with omega-3 intake include:
- Reduced depression and anxiety (sometimes even more than with antidepressants)
- Improved eye health
- Improved brain health, especially for young children
- Highly reduced symptoms of ADHD
- Fighting autoimmune disorders
- Reduction of violent urges associated with mental health problems
- The fighting of age-induced mental decline
- Reduction of asthma symptoms
- Alleviating menstrual pain
- Improved sleep
The list of benefits could go on, but there are really two major points to remember when it comes to omega-3s: they positively correlate to brain and heart function, the two organs that most affect the rest of your body. With a high rate of both mental health and heart health problems in the U.S., our 5 Seed Butter — and the omega-3s that come with it — is one way to help fight these epidemics.
It’s Great as a Baking Alternative
One of the drawbacks to many “health food” products is that they don’t necessarily work well as substitutes in recipes that use less healthy products. With a nut-free butter, this won’t be as much of an issue. The binding factors of peanut butter, mainly fat, are still present in nut-free butter, but luckily they’re the healthy variety of unsaturated fats, which means a healthier heart, less guilt, and some of the same delicious baked goods you’ve grown up with.
