The Plant-based diet is based on the consumption of products of plant origin. In other words, fruit, vegetables, legumes, cereals, nuts, soya, etc.
The Plant-based diet excludes foods of animal origin, which are the main cause of cholesterol and triglycerides.
Benefits of Plant-based
One of the benefits of the Plant-based diet is the reduction of chronic and cardiovascular diseases by eliminating the consumption of animal fats.
They improve the levels of vitamins A and C, minerals (potassium), oligoelements and phytochemical compounds. They are rich in water and fibre, as they are present in most fruits.
Delafruit is a specialist in the production of plant-based beverages, which can be consumed in Plant-based and Vegan diets.
Plant-based drinks include a wide variety of products made from plant-based foods such as oats, almonds, rice, or soya. These drinks are more digestible and the best alternative for those who are lactose intolerant. Mixed with cereals, they are ideal for creating smoothies.
Delafruit's catalogue of Plant-based products is made up of drinks based on Soya, Rice, Oats and Almonds.
Benefits of plant-based drinks:
Soya: this type of drink provides protein and B vitamins, including folic acid.
Rice: rice drinks have a milder flavour. It should be noted that they contain less protein and calcium than other seeds.
Oats: rich in protein, fatty acids, minerals such as iron, B vitamins and fibre.
Almonds: provide protein and heart-healthy fats, contain calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. They are also very rich in vitamin D and fibre.
Vegetable-based sauces are ideal for a vegetarian or vegan diet. They are made by substituting cheese and cream, in the form of nutritional yeast and oat drink for sauces such as carbonara, 4 cheese and fungi.
Replacing conventional milks with plant-based drinks will help to improve the animal welfare suffered by the animals in their production.
Conventional animal-based milks contain a proportion of saturated fats, whereas plant-based drinks contain a healthy lipid profile and reduce cholesterol and triglycerides.
