MORE LEGUMES MORE NUTRITION
Chickpeas, lentils and beans make up the legume family - the everyday heroes of the plant kingdom you’ve always known, but maybe overlooked. They’re full of goodness, including protein, fibre and iron, as well as magnesium, zinc and B vitamins meaning they punch well above their superfood weight. That's why we’ve hand-picked them as our ingredients of choice, to create your favourite comfort foods and bring plant power to you!
The fibre in legumes is a known prebiotic. This means it plays an important role in feeding the probiotics or good bacteria in your gut, enabling them to function properly - helping digestion and nutrient absorption as well as inhibiting the growth of bad bacteria. A healthy dose of fibre in your diet also helps control cravings, blood pressure and might even brighten our moods. High fibre, high five for your gut!
Power in plant protein
But where do you get your protein? We’ve cut out the ‘middle cow’ and gone straight to the source. Protein-rich plants like legumes, nuts & grains contain all the amino acid protein building blocks our bodies need for energy and recovery. Protein plays an important role in nearly every function of the body including our vital organs, muscles, tissues and even our hormones. One serve of Wilderbean pasta contains 30g of protein, which is roughly 60% of your daily recommended protein needs.. so you know what to do.
All natural - nothing but real beans
Nature created chickpeas, lentils and mung beans full of plant protein, fibre and nutrients, so when we hand selected these powerful ingredients for Wilderbean comfort food, we didn’t need to add a thing. Know your meal is free from cheap fillers as well as artificial additives and preservatives.
What goes in: just beans, naturally.
Know that snoozy feeling when you crash after a serve of white bread or regular pasta? That’s your body struggling to process the high GI carbohydrates which cause your blood sugar to spike and plummet. Wilderbean comfort food is naturally low GI, releasing energy slowly to give you the buzz and hum of plant based energy, without the insulin crash and burn.
Macro love for those micronutrients
Tiny but essential, micronutrients are the vitamins and minerals your body needs to keep you functioning at your prime. They are crucial to maintaining your energy levels, metabolism, cellular function as well as your physical and mental wellbeing. Thanks to legumes, Wilderbean comfort food is packed with magnesium, folate, zinc, iron, potassium and phosphorus - giving you the nutrients you need, without the supplements.
1 of your 5 a day
The pasta that not-so-secretly feeds you veggies. Legumes are so packed with fibre and nutrients that half a cup counts as one of your five daily recommended servings of vegetables. Not only that, thanks to their protein content the Australian Dietary Guidelines puts them in the same category as meat. Being tasty to boot, they're a delicious trifecta of goodness on your fork. We'll eat to that!
