TORONTO, Jan. 15 /CNW/ - Those who have made a new year's resolution to become healthier now have an alternative for that afternoon snack. Toronto based organic food distributors, Mike & Mike's, have released a new line of 100% certified organic snack foods aptly named Organic Select.
Currently being sold at select retailers across the GTA and Ottawa, Organic Select is looking to become a staple for the health conscious consumer with choices such as raw almonds, cashews, cranberries, and even blends such as the popular Goji Sport Mix.
It is the Goji Sport Mix that company President Mike Fronte is certain will become a popular choice. "Goji Berries were recently featured on Oprah and is the new superfood of 2010." When looking at the power of Goji Berries, it is no surprise that Mike Fronte is confident about the product's potential.
Hailing from the exotic regions of China, Mongolia, and in the Himalayas of Tibet, Goji Berries have been used by Chinese herbalists for over 6000 years. Though historically significant, it is the nutritional power of the small-red fruit that is most impressive. A single serving of Goji Berries has more Vitamin C than an entire orange and is a better source of beta-carotene than carrots. Goji Berries also have the highest antioxidant rating of any fruit or vegetable in the world, 10 times more than the much praised blueberry.
It is those antioxidants that has experts like Dr. Oz excited, who recently raved about the recuperative powers of Goji Berries. Studies show that antioxidants, which Goji Berries have the highest source of, protect the body against free radicals which can increase damage to muscle tissue after exercise and is believed to precipitate the aging process.
Amazingly, the Goji Sport Mix is only one of 26 healthy snacks offered by Organic Select. Company President Mike Fronte is optimistic saying, "We offer healthy alternatives to everyday eating. In short, our consumers can expect better, healthier, snacks."
Organic Select is also looking to go beyond offering healthy snacks and is going to provide their consumers with nutritional information such as recipes, articles, and tips for living a healthier life. Construction is underway for www.organicselect.ca which will be Canada's leading web site on health, nutrition, and all things Organic.
For now, information on Organic Select and healthy living is available by visiting them online at www.mikeandmikes.com and also via www.facebook.com/organicselect.
