Stevia is the wonder sweetener that originated in South America hundreds of years ago. It is a completely natural sweetener derived from the stevia rebaudiana plant and is 300 times stronger than sugar. Containing zero calories, stevia does not adversely affect blood sugar levels and can be enjoyed by diabetics as a sugar and artificial sweetener alternative.

 

Chia seeds are a great source of Omega-3 essential fatty acids and are perfect for the weight conscious. Chia seeds are also very beneficial to the heart and extremely high in fibre, calcium, high quality protein, slowly processed carbohydrates and loaded with vitamins & minerals and antioxidants.

Soy protein is derived from soy beans, a legume rich in health benefits. Containing no cholesterol, the soybean is a good source of iron, calcium, fibre, B vitamins and is low in saturated fats. Being the only vegetable food that contains all eight essential amino acids, soy beans are a nutritious alternative to animal proteins and perfect for those following a vegetarian diet.

 

 

Other benefits include:
Controls high blood sugar (hyperglycaemia)
Contains phytoestrogens which have a positive effect on bone and calcium retention, particularly for menopausal women
May reduce the risk of certain cancers, in particular prostate and breast cancer
Reduces cholesterol
Increases the nutritional value of other foods due to the soy bean containing all eight amino acids

Product Spotlight: Genisoy Soy Crisps

When seeking a better snack alternative, we are often faced with two unappealing options: Either a healthy snack that sacrifices taste or a tastier natural and organic snack that is loaded with fat or calories and has little nutritional value. Genisoy doesn’t believe you should sacrifice taste or nutrition. We think you’ll find our indulgent Sweet Crisps, savory Soy Crisps, and roasted Soy Nuts are great snacks that will satisfy your sweet and savory cravings. All of our snacks are packed with protein and are very modest in calories, fat, sodium, and carbs. Genisoy Snacks are a positively smart snacking alternative.

About Genisoy

For nearly 20 years, Genisoy has provided a variety of delicious, protein-packed nutrition bars, savory snacks, and shakes and powders. In 1999, the FDA released the Soy Protein Heart Health Claim stating that “25 grams of Soy Protein per day could help lower the risk of Coronary Heart Disease”. While soy protein is still an important part of our DNA, today Genisoy prides itself on offering consumers a wide variety of important nutritional benefits.

We believe you’ll find our products offer measurable advantages over many other healthy snacks, bars and powders on the market. Genisoy’s products are:

  • 100% natural and made with non-GMO Soy
