Innovative food tech companies are revolutionizing the way we consume carbs. Namely, they’re using modified enzyme technology to literally change the grain.
Using this tech, they can make a bagel that contains the carbs of only two banana slices but that retains the taste of a delicious, fluffy bagel. That means you can enjoy traditionally carb-heavy foods in all their glory without the guilt or adverse health effects. Here’s how food tech companies are revolutionizing carbs.
Healthy Alternatives to Refined Carbs
Refined carbohydrates often contain added sugar, and when we eat them in excess, they can have adverse effects on our health, such as weight gain. To help us enjoy our favorite foods while leading healthier lives, food tech companies are interested in finding healthy alternatives to refined carbs. Solutions include plant-based ingredients and modifying grain enzymes.
So far, the results have been very successful. There are already refined-carb substitution products on the market, and they taste nearly identical to traditional products.
As an added benefit, these “healthy-carb” foods have extra protein, meaning your morning bagel will stay with you a lot longer than one with refined carbs. This makes you feel full for longer and discourages bad habits such as snacking or overeating.
Taking the Guilt Out of Carbs
Many modern diets treat carbs as the number one things you should avoid, which is unfortunate because carb-heavy foods such as bagels, bread, and doughnuts are incredibly common and popular. This has created something of a stigma that leads to a lot of guilt when one consumes carbs—even in healthy portions—and food tech companies intend to eliminate that.
Instead of viewing that morning bagel as cheating on your diet, it can now be part of your plan. Healthy “smart-carb” bagels contain minimal carbs, with plenty of protein and fiber as substitutes.
With the success of healthier bagels, we’re bound to see guilt-free doughnuts, bread, and more in the near future. So if you’re a huge fan of carbs but don’t want to gain weight, you should absolutely participate in and pay close attention to the development of smarter, better food.
Now you better understand how food tech companies are revolutionizing carbs. We’ve learned how to modify grains at the enzyme level to reduce their adverse effects and found beneficial substitutes that produce the same delicious flavor you can expect in normal bagels.
The Better Bagel is an excellent place to start for people who are learning to live with healthier diets and having trouble letting go of some of their favorite foods. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to start improving your health without having to sacrifice a thing.
