Mooz realises the importance of staying abreast with trends in healthy cooking and baking, and incorportes these learnings into the product offering. 

Many of the Mooz customers have very specific dietry requirements which Mooz is happy to accommodate. In this section we have identified the three major food trends which health proffesionals advise.  We have provided definitions to help understand these terms, and specified the ways in which Mooz has catered for these trends.

 

Gluten Free

Definition and Benefits

Gluten is found in many foods including rye, oats, wheat, malt and barley. While it has been found to cause mild allergic reactions in some people, it can lead to full-blown Coeliac disease (autoimmune disorder of the small intestine) in others. Many people have found it beneficial to eliminate gluten from their diets, ranging from those with ADHD to those with auto-immune disorders.

Gluten-free diets have also been shown to be beneficial to those suffering from thyroid disease, cystic fibrosis, multiple sclerosis, anemia, autism, and irritable bowel syndrome. Eliminating gluten from the diet can also be of great benefit to those wishing to lose weight.

By eliminating gluten from your diet, it is also possible to increase your energy levels, lower bad cholesterol levels and even assist the body`s digestive processes.

Gluten Free at Mooz

Gluten free breads and rolls are baked fresh every Thursday by the Mooz bakery.  However, if customers have any other requirements, such as gluten free biscuits, and for any other day of the week, they may contact Mooz to place an order.

 

Low GI

Definition and Benefits

The glycemic index (GI) is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100 according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating.

Foods with a high GI are those which are rapidly digested and absorbed and result in marked fluctuations in blood sugar levels and frequent hunger spurts.

Low-GI foods, by virtue of their slow digestion and absorption, produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, and have proven benefits for health.

Low GI diets have been shown to improve both glucose and lipid levels in people with diabetes (type 1 and type 2). They have benefits for weight control because they help control appetite and delay hunger. Low GI diets also reduce insulin levels and insulin resistance.

Recent studies from Harvard School of Public Health indicate that the risks of diseases such as type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease are strongly related to the GI of the overall diet. It is recommended that people in industrialised countries base their diets on low-GI foods in order to prevent the most common diseases of affluence, such as coronary heart disease, diabetes and obesity.

Low GI at Mooz

Sugar free or low GI health breads, brown loaves and rolls are almost always available for Mooz customers who are either diabetic or sensitive to the GI levels of their food products.  Orders can also be placed if any other specific low GI products are required.

Special Rye

Definition and Benefits

Rye is a very good source of fibre, which is important since most people today do not get enough fibre in their diets. Rye fibre is richly endowed with noncellulose polysaccharides, which have exceptionally high water-binding capacity and quickly gives a feeling of fullness and satiety, making rye bread a real help for anyone trying to lose weight.

Rye bread may be a better choice than wheat bread for persons with diabetes. A study published in the November 2003 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that bread made from wheat triggers a greater insulin response than rye bread does. Other medical benefits proposed include its ability to fight colon cancer, cardiovascular disease and menopause, as well as prevent breast cancer.

Special Rye at Mooz

Mooz offers rye fans a wide variety of rye bread options. 

First, there is the normal rye bread – which is renowned for being sliced and great with hot beef and relish.  For those who don’t like rye seeds, Mooz makes a “seedless rye”, which is also popular with kids – “rye in disguise”. Then, for the real rye enthusiasts there is the 100% rye which has no added flour and as a result, double-packed with all the goodness that rye has to offer.  Finally, for the rustic, wholesome bread lovers, there is the sourdough rye which is distinguished by its hard outer crust and sour, yet moist inner bread.

To avoid dissapointment, contact Mooz to place your order for any of the above Rye products.
