Else™ Kids contains almond butter, buckwheat flour, tapioca maltodextrin, and vitamins and minerals. The toddler nutritional drink is slightly sweetened with Tapioca syrup- significantly less than traditional offerings.
95% of the product’s composition is made up of 3 whole plant ingredients:
Almond butter is a rich protein source, but also contains biotin, Vitamin E, copper, and manganese. Almonds also provide good amounts of Vitamin B2 (riboflavin), phosphorus, magnesium, and molybdenum. They are also a great source of monounsaturated fat. Almonds are a whole food alternative to protein sources like cow’s milk whey, casein, or processed soy, are highly-digestible, and have been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects. Prebiotic fiber from almonds favorably alters the intestinal microbiome.
Buckwheat is a high-quality, gluten-free plant with grain-like seeds and a source of protein (full amino acid profile - all 8 essential amino acids, making it a high-quality protein source) and nutritious carbohydrates. Buckwheat is also a very good source of manganese, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, and antioxidants. It is also a source of favorable prebiotic fiber for the intestinal tract.
Tapioca, derived from the root vegetable cassava (think: yuca) is an easy-to-digest form of carbohydrate and is free of taste, smell, and flavor, made using water and all-natural enzymes.
Natural Flavors are added to Else™ Kids using the following ingredients:
- Real Cocoa Powder (Chocolate Flavor)
- Natural Vanilla (Vanilla Flavor)
