Our One-of-a-Kind Slo-Food Process™
The best way to consume essential vitamins and minerals is by eating a variety of fresh, colorful foods – fruits, vegetables and whole grains. At MegaFood® we go out of our way to start with fresh, ripe-harvested whole foods that will provide our customers with a broad array of essential vitamins, minerals and micro-nutrients, just as Nature intended.
We are mindful of the fact that standard manufacturing processes can destroy many of the delicate phytonutrients that play a key role in supporting health. Because MegaFood® is committed to delivering authentic nourishment and not just vitamins alone, we have no other choice than to do things differently. To help us understand how to best protect these health supportive nutrients, we partnered with researchers at the University of New Hampshire. Together we developed the unique Slo-Food Process™ which is used to make our MegaFood® products.
Just as the name implies, the Slo-Food Process™ is a slower, gentler way of making whole food supplements. The process was designed to optimize the potency of a vitamin or mineral within the phytonutrient-rich whole foods selected to create our FoodState Nutrients™. Each and every step, from farm to tablet, was designed with the ultimate goal in mind – to create supplements that make a noticeable difference on your journey toward optimal health.
The foods we use, sourced from farms as close to home as possible, are delivered fresh frozen to the doorstep of our own manufacturing facility in Londonderry, New Hampshire. It is here, in our MegaFood® kitchen, that the Slo-Food Process™ takes place. We use cold-milling to help break down indigestible plant fibers and enhance digestibility, natural enzymatic pre-digestion to improve bioavailability and gentle drying to maximize nutrient retention. Heat-free tableting and glass bottles ensure that the foods are as nutrient rich when they reach our customer as they were when they were delivered to us in their fresh, raw form.
Made with love in New Hampshire since 1973, we have been serving our customers for over 40 years. We look forward to providing you the best in whole food supplements for many more years to come.
