Welcome to our exciting new spotlight series, Get to Know! Here at Autism Hope Alliance (AHA), we would not be where we are without the incredible support of our amazing partners. In this series, we will be checking in with some of our partners to bring you their latest news, as well as ask some frequently asked questions.
For our inaugural Get to Know post, we are teaming up with MELT to learn about their new organic probiotic spread! We asked MELT’s Marketing Manager, Andy Query, to fill us in on why this butter-style spread should be added to your grocery list.
Get To Know: MELT
AHA: What are the main ingredients of your new Melt Organic Probiotic Spread?
AHA: Why are probiotics important in our diet?
Andy: Probiotics are live microorganisms that are intended to have health benefits; microorganisms that are critical partners in helping our bodies function properly. For example, beneficial bacteria normally present in our intestines assist in digesting food, destroying disease-causing microorganisms, and producing vitamins. Large numbers of microorganisms live on and in our bodies. In fact, microorganisms in the human body outnumber human cells by 10 to 1. The microorganisms in MELT Probiotic are the same as microorganisms that naturally live in our bodies.
AHA: Kids can be picky. Will this spread appeal to little ones and adults alike?!
Andy: With its creamy taste, MELT Probiotic enhances the flavor of the foods your kids love while delivering probiotics safely and deliciously. Just two servings, or two tablespoons, per day spread liberally on their morning toast, muffin, bagel or waffles delivers 1 billion CFUs of probiotic GanedenBC30 to support your kiddos digestive health.
AHA: If we already eat yogurt, is the Melt Probiotic Spread still a good addition to our diet?
Andy: MELT Probiotic delivers active cultures 10x more effectively than yogurt because MELT is dairy free and therefore isn’t pasteurized. Additionally, GanedenBC30 survives the digestive process better than yogurt cultures.
AHA: The spread has both Omega 3 and 6. What’s the difference?
Andy: Industrialized societies have reduced the consumption of foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids and increased consumption of vegetable oils rich in omega-6 fatty acids such as soy, corn, safflower, and canola oils. Both are essential and healthy as long as they are in the perfect 2-1 balance (the same as grass fed milk). Omega-3 fatty acids also play a role in the prevention and modulation of certain diseases that are common in Western civilization.
