HEALTH & ALLERGIES
What is Gluten? Gluten is a protein found in the grains wheat, barley, and rye. It can also be used as a food additive in the form of a flavoring, stabilizer or thickening agent.
Over the last few years there has been an increasing awareness of Celiac disease (gluten intolerance) and gluten sensitivity. In addition to people who suffer from gluten intolerance and sensitivities, many people just feel healthier and more energetic when they eat a gluten-free, whole foods diet.
For more information on Celiac and gluten sensitivity visit celiac.org or gluten.net.

BTC is made in Canada in a strictly peanut- and tree-nut-free factory, under Health Canada official definition: BTC is made in a factory free from Peanuts and Tree nuts (almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios, walnuts). Health Canada official definition The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI) states: “Coconut is not a botanical nut; it is classified as a fruit, even though the Food and Drug Administration recognizes coconut as a tree nut. While allergic reactions to coconut have been documented, most people who are allergic to tree nuts can safely eat coconut. If you are allergic to tree nuts, talk to your allergist before adding coconut to your diet.”

What does “raw” mean? When food is labeled as raw, it means that none of the ingredients have been heated to a temperature above 118°F to preserve all the plant enzymes that would be destroyed by the extreme heat of cooking.
Why eat raw food? We are not raw food advocates as such but the BTC base is raw. Raw food advocates say heat changes the molecular structure of food, and destroys most or all of the food’s beneficial enzymes and renders its nutrients mostly unusable. Enzymes help the body properly digest and assimilate food for optimal nutritional value. Although the body is capable of making enzymes it is believed to have a finite amount, and over time, the amount of available enzymes diminishes. Studies show that consuming living enzymes (i.e. raw food) can help conserve the body’s energy, reduce disease-causing stress and support a healthier digestive system.
