Like muesli, there are many different kinds and qualities of granola. Biotona wants to offer only the best and healthiest granolas and for this reason decided to work together with food coach Claudia van Avermaet. She accepted our challenge to create something that was ‘not just another granola’. The result is three Power Granolas with different compositions for different uses at different times of the day. You can choose from Daily, Boost and Recup, all of which are deliciously crunchy and packed with pure, unprocessed ingredients.
The power of good food
Power Granolas, developed in collaboration with Claudia van Avermaet, are a welcome new addition to the Biotona range. As a well-known and highly respected food, mind and body coach with a passion for sport, Claudia knows better than anyone what the body needs at different times of the day. Her vision is that everyone can enjoy a happy and energetic life. So what more could you wish for than a breakfast, power boost or snack fresh from the kitchen of Biotona and Claudia van Avermaet?!
Buckwheat as the basis
For Biotona’s Power Granola range, it was decided to use buckwheat as the basis, instead of the more traditional oatmeal. Buckwheat is not a cereal but a seed, which means that it is easily digestible, gluten-free and has a low glycemic index, which prevents unwanted spikes in your blood sugar level. The buckwheat seeds are activated during a short soaking process, as a result of which all their beneficial components – slow carbohydrates and high concentrations of proteins and flavonoids – become optimally available. All the ingredients in Biotona Power Granolas are 100% raw and have undergone minimal processing. Rosemary extract has been used as a natural preservative.
Which of the three?
Biotona Power Granola Daily is a typical breakfast granola. This tasty and crunchy granola is guaranteed to give you a wholesome morning dose of energy based on buckwheat, which will keep you feeling pleasantly full until lunchtime. It is packed with fibres and rich in omega-3 fatty acids. The super-healthy taste bombs in this mix are pure chocolate, coconut chips, pecan nuts, walnuts, chia seed and a pinch of cinnamon. These are supplemented with coconut blossom nectar, dates, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and baobab.
Biotona Power Granola Boost is ideal as a pre-workout snack for sportsmen and women or for anyone at the start of a busy day. This delicious mix has high concentrations of carbohydrates and proteins, which give an immediate energy boost, as well as being easily digested. It contains crunchy buckwheat, freeze-dried red fruits, maca and nuts, all of which are lightly sweetened with coconut blossom nectar. The added superfoods are red beet (for good blood circulation) and cacao cores (for energy). Used as a snack during a hectic morning or afternoon, this granola can give you an instant pick-me-up just when you need it.
Biotona Power Granola Recup is a protein-rich granola, enhanced with various nuts, seeds and fruits that are ideal for helping your body to recover after sport or some other form of physical effort. It contains crunchy buckwheat, pumpkin seeds, Inca berries, mulberries, almonds and coconut water powder. The mix is further supplemented with mineral-rich tiger nut meal and turmeric, flavoured with coconut chips, coconut blossom nectar and black pepper. This granola is ideal as a snack to help you keep going on a busy day.
