The Functional Nutrition Brand
All salad dressings, dips, and marinades are crafted by Mary with organic cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil. She uses her Master of Science in Nutrition to make sure all dressings are designed with nutrition in mind. Mary found herself recommending dressings that only had healthy oils in them, only to find out there were not many choices! That’s why The Functional Nutrition Brand creates Paleo dressings that are olive oil based and free of canola oil, soybean oil, and sunflower oil. A clean product just for you!
Why Olive Oil?
You bother to go to the grocery store to get healthy food. You bother to cook healthy meals. Why not make sure what you add to these meals is equally as healthy?! Olive oil is rich in antioxidants and other phytonutrients, such as oleic acid, which can promote heart health! Oleic acid is a very healthy monounsaturated fat that also helps promote healthy blood sugar balance!
NO CANOLA OIL.
NO SOYBEAN OIL.
YES OLIVE OIL.
What oils are unhealthy?
If you shop around markets for salad dressings, dips, and marinades, you will be hard-pressed to find any that do not contain oils such as canola, soybean, sunflower, safflower, corn, and vegetable oils. All these oils, with the exception of canola, are high in omega-6 fats. Omega-6 fats promote inflammation in the body! Canola oil was originally an industrial oil that went into circulation for human consumption. It was not meant to be part of our diet! That’s why The Functional Nutrition Brand dressings, dips, and marinades are made with organic cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil!
