Sugarleaf : Up Up And Away With Superfood!


Wazzup Pilipinas !
A superfood is a food rich in phytochemicals, which are special compounts that have been noted to have disease-fighting properties. These can reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer, reduce inflammation, strengthen the immune systen, or in some other way contribute significantly to a person being healthier.

Examples of common superfoods that are fruits include blueberries, cranberries, red grapes, pink grapefruit, mangos, mangosteen, papaya, watermelons and tomatoes. What makes these fruits so super is that they are packed with special nutrients like phytochemical. For example, tomatoes are high in lycopene, which may reduce risk for prostate cancer, and high in beta carotene, which may promote greater mental alertness and slow conditions like Alzheimer’s. Vitamin C is another nutrient indicated in anti-aging and possible reduction in risk of developing cancer.

Rather than take a supplement, consume and enjoy delicious foods at Sugarleaf whose menu nourishes at the cellular level and provides much more than calories.

Aside from using natural and organic ingredients creatively incorporated into delicious soups, salads, sandwiches, wraps, drinks, desserts and ice cream, Sugarleaf incorporates these local and imported vegan food wonders to boost the nutrient content.

Probiotic-rich kefir, containing over 30 species of beneficial bacteria (compared to only a few in yoghurt), is expertly made in house and used in majority of Sugarleaf’s best selling dishes. Though somewhat sour, it is combined with herbs, fruits, natural sweeteners like low glycemic coconut sugar and raw wild honey to create delicious sauces, savoury pasta, hearty wraps, creamy cheesecake and ice cream!

Exotic superfoods used from around the world are chia (detoxifying seeds from South America) in Goody Kefir smoothies, acai (anti-oxidising berries from the Amazon) in ice cream, maca (hormone balancer and energy boosting root crop from Peru) in desserts and a lot more! Local superfoods such as organic blueberries, spinach, guyabano, spirulina and malunggay are also showcased in soups, drinks and ice cream.
