Granola Nutrition

   Fruit-Benefits   Fruit-Benefits

It is impossible to give you the exact nutritional values of granola as it is a combination of fruits, nuts, grains and whatever else fancies your tastebuds. Granola in general is full of heart healthy whole grains such as oats, wheat and whole wheat flour that can help to lower cholesterol. The whole grains in granola are also a good source of soluble and insoluble fiber, which help to keep your intestines in proper working order and also keep your body feeling fuller for longer periods of time. Many granolas also contain various nuts, which are beneficial to your body. Nuts, such as walnuts and almonds, contain “good” fats and omega-3 fatty acids that are essential for heart health.

As you should expect, our granola is heavy in fruits and each fruit has its own nutritional values. Many of our fruits are high in antioxidants. So what ARE antioxidants you ask? Antioxidants are substances that may protect cells in your body from free radical damage that can occur from exposure to certain chemicals, smoking, pollution, radiation, and as a byproduct of normal metabolism. Dietary antioxidants include selenium, vitamin A and the related carotenoids, vitamin C, and vitamin E, plus various phytochemicals such as lycopene, lutein, and quercetin. That's the quick definition.
