FAQ

We have put together a list of frequently asked questions and answers about our products below. If you have a question or query that is not answered here feel free to contact us at info@nutraorganics.com.au

All of our products are 100% natural and are also DAIRY FREE, GLUTEN FREE, NUT FREE, SOY FREE, CORN FREE, GMO FREE and PRESERVATIVE FREE

No Barley Grass does NOT contain gluten. Barley grass (hordeum vulgore) is made from the powdered leaves of young plants. Barley Grass is at its optimum nutrient value when the young leaves are between 12 cm to 16 cm and before the grain stalk has started to develop. This is the time that it is harvested, dried and powdered. Once the grain stalk has started to develop, the nutrient focus is on growning the stalk and developing the head for the barley grain to grow. This is were the gluten in produced, in the stalk and head of the barley. It is an excellent source of dark green vegetable (chlorophyll) nutrition, rich in dietary fibre (promoting good colon health and regularity, higher than bran). Contains high amounts of minerals, vitamins and proteins, more than most other leafy vegetables. It contains magnesium, calcium beta carotene, more iron than spinach and many other amino acids and enzymes essential for healthy living.

With our green powders, we recommend you start off with small amounts and slowly build up to around a tablespoon a day, the reason we recommend this is our Organic Barley Spirulina Blend and Super Greens + Reds contain Chlorella which is a heavy metal detoxifier, if you have not taken chlorella before it is best to start off with small amounts and build up your bodies resistance to it to get the best detoxing results.

On each of Nutra Organics products there is a dosage, which explains how much to take and suggested uses. Please see the product pages for uses and recipes. 

Yes, our products are safe for children to take, however we do recommend that the children take smaller amounts than the suggested amounts for adults - Please follow the guildlines set on the package. If your child is under 12 months old we suggest that you half the dose - or take half a teaspoon - whichever is smaller. Also we always advise that for a child under 12 months you seek advise from your health care practioner as every child has different sensitivities, food tastes and nutritional requirements. 

We advise on all of our products to advise from your health care professional on taking or products if you are pregnant or lactating. We only say so as we believe that every pregnancy is different, taking a toll differently on each individual body in vitamin, mineral and energy levels.

Also we invite you to research online at www.nutraorganics.com.au to ensure that you are not sensitive to any particular ingredients.

We can advise that our team member - Ricki Harrison - has taken all of our products during both her pregnancies and brestfeeding periods - and attributes her great pregnancies and energy levels to our products - especially our super greens + reds.

If you are unsure or start using the products and feel unwell or have a reaction discontinue use. 

We would like to put your mind at ease about the silica we use in our products - yes the packet does carry a warning as some silica contains toxic additives. You would have noted our silica beads are clear in colour they do not have any nasty chemicals added to the gel beads (some silica beads may be blue, pink or even orange)

Every single aspect of our products is 100% food safe, we will not add anything to our products that we would not have in our own homes.

The saturated fat content on our nutritional label is a result of what naturally occurring fat content is in each of the raw materials.

For example if carrot has a saturated fat content of x when it is eaten the same fat content is put in the nutritional label. 

We do not add any saturated fat, palm oil or any other trans fats to our products, it's all naturally occurring. 

These naturally occurring fats in the foods that we dry are very important for the human body, not all fats are the same.

The fact is, all saturated fats are not created equal

The operative word here is "created," because some saturated fats occur naturally, while other fats are artificially manipulated into a saturated state through the man-made process called hydrogenation ?

Why does the seal come off when you open the lid for the first time ?

A: the seals are heat sensitive which means as the lid is screwed down it is sealed at the same time, sometimes the seal can lift when the jar is first opened.

As the seal and the lid can become one when finalising the product. Rest assured it has been properly sealed  

Just to let all our customers know that have purchased any vital veggie with a batch code 3011.

We have been getting enquires why the inside of the jar is turning green.

As you know our Vital Veggie Power contains Chlorella and Spirulina. Both of these products are made up of extremely fine particles, and once the product moves around in the container the fine particles are sticking to the side of the container. As our products are so fresh and do not contain anything artificial they will slightly from yield to yield of produce.

So please don't panic the product is not going mouldy, and be rest assured that the Vital Veggie has not lost any of its nutrient potency and is SAFE to consume.

The Annatto(Bixa orellana) used in Thriving Protein is derived from the leaf - not the flower and IS NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH 160b which is derived from the seeds and used as a food colour.

The leaf of the Annatto plant has amazing healing properties it is known to be antimicrobial, diuretic, digestive stimulant, hepatoprotective (liver protector), hypocholesterolemic (lowers cholesterol)

Rest assured we would not use any harmful additives.

We completely understand that you may like to try a sample of the protein before you purchase, however unfortunately we do not have any sample sachets of the Protein available at this stage. 

it is something we are working on and we hope to have them available in Mid April. In the meantime, we can promise you that they are absolutely delicious and you wont be disappointed.
