Scientists and health experts agree that decreasing the intake of red and processed meats while increasing vegetarian proteins pave the way to better health. Vegetarian proteins are also produced in a more environmentally friendly and sustainable way.
This is why we have chosen to use three high-quality plant protein sources for the Natural Balance Soups from Wellness by Oriflame: pea, soy and potato. Raw materials and final products in both Natural Balance Soup Tomato & Basil and Natural Balance Soup Asparagus are free of ingredients derived from animals – that is also why our soups are registered with the Vegan Society!
Natural Balance Soups as a nutritious snack
Natural Balance Soups are low-fat, high in protein, with added fibre featuring three vegetarian protein sources: pea, soy and potato. Free from artificial colorants, flavours, preservatives, GMO and gluten. Sweetened with fructose, they have natural origin ingredients and are registered with the Vegan Society.
Easy to mix and delicious to eat. It takes only seconds to make a rich, satisfying soup!
The Natural Balance Soups have high protein content, which will help you feel satisfied for hours. The protein comes from the three vegetarian sources: soy, potato and pea. The combination of these three ensures a complete amino acid profile.
The soups are low in fat, but contain rapeseed (canola) oil, which provides the best omega-3 profile of all cooking oils. This is why nutritionists and doctors recommend that rapeseed oil is used for baby food and food for children.
Micronutrients and fibre
The asparagus tips and spinach powder in the Natural Balance Soup Asparagus provide carotenoids (antioxidants), vitamin K, iron and folate. The tomato powder in the Natural Balance Soup Tomato & Basil contains lycopene and carotenoids, both great antioxidants.
The soups contain a water-soluble and prebiotic fibre called inulin. Water-soluble fibres bind and flush toxins and cholesterol out of your body. Prebiotics provide good nutrition for your gut flora, of utmost importance for your immune system.
Consume Natural Balance Soups as a snack between meals to maintain high focus and energy levels or enjoy as the part of a meal. Just add a salad and a slice of wholegrain bread to get a complete and satisfying lunch or dinner!
