|100% ORGANIC WHOLE GRAINS and OAT FLOUR
STACK’D Protein Pancakes contain organic whole grains, 100% organic whole wheat and whole grain oat flour. A growing body of research shows that eating whole grains and other less-processed sources of carbohydrates and cutting back on refined grains improves health in a myriad of ways. Whole and intact grains, including whole wheat and oats, and foods made with them, can have a milder effect on blood sugar and insulin than white flour and other refined grains found in most pancake mixes. Whole grains offer a “complete package” of health benefits unlike refined grains, which are stripped of valuable nutrients in the refining process. Whole grains contain bran and fiber, which slow the breakdown of starch into glucose – thus maintaining a steady blood sugar rather than causing sharp spikes.
100% ORGANIC COCONUT FLOUR
STACK’D Protein Pancakes (KokoNut flavor) also contains organic coconut flour, made from dried coconut meat. Due to its numerous health benefits light coconut flavor and airy texture, coconut flour fits perfectly into a pancake mix and its also low in carbs, high in fiber and adds a subtle yet delicious coconut flavor. Coconut flour also doesn't spike your blood sugar as quickly as other processed grain based flours. Coconut flour also contains a significant amount of protein and healthy fats, which contributes to cell repair and growth. Coconut flour digests easily, provides instant energy, and may boost your metabolism.
100% MISCELLAR CASEIN PROTEIN
STACK’D Protein Pancakes contain an ultra pure 100% Micellar Casein Protein with zero additives, which provide an astonishing 90% protein yield. This means that you get complete proteins with each serving of STACK’D Protein Pancakes. You also you get the added bonus of a slow-release protein which is perfect for pre or post-workout to keep your muscles saturated with protein. The slow-release protein, along with low glycemic carbohydrates, prevent muscle catabolism and muscle tissue breakdown which takes place when there is an insufficient amount of amino acids in your blood stream from digested proteins. In order to effectively increase or maintain muscle, you must prevent this from taking place.
Because Casein Protein can inhibit whole body protein breakdown, many consider it to be the ultimate protein due to its more gradual release of Amino Acids. This gradual release allows the body to fully absorb the protein, creating an extremely high net protein utilization score. The use of Casein makes STACK’D Protein Pancakes a superior choice as part of a healthy diet and exercise program.
No Refined Sugars, Sugar Substitutes, Artificial Sweeteners or Flavoring
Artificial Sweeteners such as sucralose (Splenda), aspartame (Equal) and saccharin (Sweet’N Low) are chemical sweeteners. Products such as Stevia, also touted as “natural,” are also processed and refined before being sold to the public. For most people, Artificial Sweeteners tend to have an undesirable chemical after-taste. STACK’D Protein Pancakes do NOT contain ANY Artificial Sweeteners, flavorings or sugar substitutes.
Refined sugars like those found in candy, soda, baked goods and most pancake mixes are simple carbohydrates derived from processed sugar cane. They simply supply calories with no nutritional benefit. The processing strips away any fiber, vitamins, minerals and nutrients belonging to the plant and leaves a product that is almost 100% sucrose. STACK’D Protein Pancakes do NOT contain ANY refined or fake sugars. STACK'D uses organic coconut sugar (KokoNut) or real organic maple sugar to add a touch of sweetness. You can always add your own additional "sweet touch" by adding syrup, yogurt, fruit or your favorite sweetener
