Production

UAB “Veganas” is pleased to offer you an alternative variety of food – crackers made from sprouted linseed, along with other products that are just as useful for our bodies, such as sprouted sunflower, pumpkin, hemp or sesame seeds, almonds and coconut shavings. Other ingredients include dried and fresh fruits and vegetables.

In order to produce our crackers, we first sprout the linseed and sunflower seed, which increases their nutritional value and vitamin content. Among the most important nutrients found in sprouted seeds are the vitamins belonging to the B complex, as well as the vitamins A, D and E, high-quality proteins, calcium, unsaturated fats, phosphorus and fluoride. Several years ago, doctors and nutritionists proved that sprouted seeds are good for one’s health because they contain plenty of vitamins and other biologically active substances that help strengthen the body’s defenses and prevent illness, including disorders of the heart, lungs and gastrointestinal tract, of the nervous and endocrine systems, and other vital organs.

When we make our crackers, we pay particular attention to preserving valuable nutrients. Upon heating, a product will lose important nutrients, such as, for instance, enzymes, which account for about 85% of the total nutritional value of the product. The crackers manufactured by UAB “Veganas” are dried at 45°C, and, in effect, may be thought of as “uncooked”. This ensures that the crackers retain their vitamins and minerals after they are ready for consumption. That way, the chief ingredients of one’s diet are unbaked and unpasteurized. The food remains in its natural form and is consumed uncooked (raw, unprepared). In this particular case, we are talking about a vegetable diet that does not have any animal proteins and provides the body with nutrients important for the optimal cell functioning and maintaining a correct Ph balance. These crackers do not contain any artificial sweeteners, animal products, GMO ingredients, soy derivatives, starch, yeast, artificial additives or dairy products.

The dried crackers manufactured by UAB “Veganas” can become a source of good health. They may help you maintain your vitality, have a positive effect on the body and improve your intuition and brain functioning, making it easier to deal with important tasks and to make proper, sound decisions.

UAB “Veganas” also cares about the flavor of the crackers. We try to combine valuable ingredients so as to make our crackers delicious as well as healthy.

Today, the transportation of fruit and vegetables often poses problems, particularly when it comes to long trips, where the chances are that the snacks will simply become spoilt. UAB “Veganas” offers crackers that contain fruit and vegetables in dried form, which retain all their beneficial properties due to the low drying temperature. These crackers will be a perfect appetizer while travelling or at work and a great snack for schoolchildren to have in between their classes.

Sprouted linseed

Since ancient times, linseed seeds were seen as a treatment for numerous ailments. And no wonder, for these small seeds contain plenty of useful substances, including large quantities of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. One can spend a long time listing all the wonderful properties of linseed, and it is well worth it. Linseed contains valuable polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9, without which the body would simply be unable to function normally. These seeds are particularly rich in the omega-3 acid, which is contained in them in quantities higher than those found in cod liver oil. In addition, many linseed fibers contain the vitamins A, E and F and lignan, “plant hormones” that hinder the development of cancer.

Modern research has shown that linseed is an active sorbent, which is significantly more effective than any of the known varieties of activated carbon. Linseed also is a strong sorbent, distinguished by the fact that it does not kill any cells and is safe to use. Linseed compensates for the lack of selenium in the body and protects it from free radicals, harmful particles that cause oncological illness.

Linseed collects various poisons and toxins and removes them from the body, improves the digestive tract and normalizes the metabolism. Linseed is an excellent source of fiber and protein. When consumed as food, linseed produces mucus, which protects the digestive tract from ulcers, gastritis and other inflammatory processes. Doctors believe that linseed, due to the high content of mucus, serves as a a softener characterized by protective action, in other words, it prevents the preventing irritation and inflammation of the gastrointestinal and esophageal mucosa and stops toxins from entering the body. Linseed promotes bowel movement, which is important for preventing constipation and obesity. The seeds swell inside the colon, relieving constipation and easing the elimination of the residue of digested food. Linseed seeds optimises the distribution of digestive juices and secretions in the pancreas. At the same time, it normalizes one’s insulin level and help reduce blood sugar levels.

The consumption of linseed improves brain function and the renewal of the brain cells responsible for sight, and increases the body’s resistance to disease. It also has a beneficial effect on the skin and is used in the cosmetics industry.

Sprouted sunflower seeds

 

Sunflower seeds contain protein, fat, amino acids, the vitamins E and C, carotene and B-group vitamins. The vitamin D found in sunflower seeds is more valuable than that contained in cod liver oil. 100 grams of these seeds contain 311 mg of magnesium, which is 6 times more than the quantity found in rye bread. 50-60 grams of sunflower seeds is equivalent to 25-30 g of sunflower oil and fully meets the body’s need for unsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E.

Sunflower seeds are beneficial because they are an excellent source of vitamin E. The vitamin E is transferred into the body and neutralizes free radicals that can damage the structure of cells and fat molecules, which comprise cell membranes and brain cells. Apart from protecting these cellular and molecular components, vitamin E has a significant anti-inflammatory effect and may help relieve the symptoms of asthma, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Vitamin E also helps reduce the risk of colon cancer, cardiovascular disease, relieve menopausal symptoms in women, as well as reducing the incidence of diabetes complications. The seeds contain vitamin A, which improves one’s vision and makes the skin more youthful-looking. B-group vitamins help us fight dandruff and acne and prevent depression and insomnia. Vitamin D promotes better calcium absorption, which, in turn, makes our bones stronger. Finally, the phytosterols contained in sunflower seeds reduce cholesterol levels, strengthen the immune system and reduces the risk of developing certain forms of cancer.

Sunflower seeds can prevent atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, cardiovascular illness and to improve liver and biliary tract functioning. Approximately 20% found in these seeds consists of amino acids. Sunflower seeds contain a highly useful amino acid known as tryptophan. This amino acid is used to synthesize the so-called happiness hormone, or serotonin, and the so-called sleep hormone, or melatonin. Additional quantities of tryptophan received by the body help reduce nervous tension, improve the mood and normalize sleep patterns.

Furthermore, due to their high content of vitamins and minerals, sunflower seeds will make your hair, skin and nails healthier and more beautiful.

Several years ago, doctors and nutritionists proved that sprouted seeds are good for one’s health because they contain plenty of vitamins and other biologically active substances that help strengthen the body’s defenses and prevent illness, including disorders of the heart, lungs and gastrointestinal tract, of the nervous and endocrine systems, and other vital organs.

The quantity of the vitamins C and A, the B-group vitamins and enzymes in sunflower seeds increases severalfold once they have been sprouted. Their regular consumption eliminates the symptoms of vitamin deficiencies, prevents stress, strengthens the immune system.

UAB “Veganas” uses sprouted and unsprouted sunflower seeds in many of its crackers. Most of the seeds are sprouted prior to manufacturing.

All of the following crackers contain sunflower seeds:

  • Linseed crackers with cumin and sunflower seed
  • Linseed crackers with hemp
  • Linseed crackers with beetroots and apples
  • Linseed crackers with sesame seed
  • Linseed crackers with bananas
  • Linseed crackers with apricots
  • Linseed crackers with raisins and oranges
  • Linseed crackers with oranges and lemons
  • Linseed crackers with almonds

Sunflower seeds are rich in the vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, D, E, F and K.

The sprouts are always fresh, tasty and improve the quality of the food we eat on a daily basis: they can be fried, briefly steamed, added to soups and other dishes. Sprouted sunflower seeds are rich in vegetable fat and the fat-soluble vitamins A, D and E. Polyunsaturated fatty acids help reduce blood cholesterol levels and slow down the aging process. Sunflower seeds can reduce the appetite, as one no longer wants to eat quite as much high-fat food while consuming them. It is not at all difficult to sprout seeds. Rinse them thoroughly, place them into a special bowl and pour in some water. The water should cover the seeds and its quantity has to be 3-4 times greater than that of the seeds. The seeds have to soak in the water for 4-12 hours (depending on their size) until they swell. After this, drain the water away. Store the swollen seeds in a covered container, without any water, to prevent them from drying, until they sprout. The seeds sprouted for 2 to 10 days (depending on the species of plant). The sprouting seeds need to be moistened at least twice at least twice a day, i.e. you have to add some water and drain it away again. Overgrown sprouted seeds have to be sprouted further in the light. The sprouts can be cut off and used to make juice.

Hemp seeds

The most important component of hemp seeds are the polyunsaturated fatty acids known as omega-3 (about three times the quantity found in seafood), which reduce blood cholesterol levels, reduce the risk of arteriosclerosis and other cardiovascular illnesses. The fiber derived from hemp seeds is used to produce substances necessary to stimulate the digestive tract, improve motor skills and remove toxins from the body. Hemp seeds contain high quantities of micro and macro trace elements: zinc, iron, calcium, phosphorus, potassium.

Hemp seeds are the only good source of two rare and very important substances: inositol and phytic acid. Inositol, otherwise known as vitamin B8, is vital for maintaiining a proper glucose metabolism in the body, is involved in the biological synthesis of purine and other important substances, and helps regulate blood cholesterol levels. Phytic acid is a vitamin that is particularly valuable due to its property of preventing the formation of fat in the liver when there is a lack of protein in one’s diet. Hemp seeds are the main source of this substance. In addition, hemp seeds contain pectin, which protects gastric and intestinal lining, prevents putrefaction bacteria from multiplying in the intestines and restores the natural microflora of the gastrointestinal tract.

 

UAB “Veganas” uses hemp seeds in:

  • Linseed crackers with hemp.

Sesame seeds

Sesame seeds are small white grains that come from the herb Sesamum indicum, known to us under the name of sesame. The useful properties of sesame have been known since antiquity. Sesame seed has a high oil content of 60%. The oil contains tocopherols, essential oils, organic acids, saturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, as well as copious quantities of triglycerides. 100 g of sesame seeds contain the recommended daily dose of calcium. The seeds also contain phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper and the vitamins B, A, E and PP. The antioxidant sesamin, which is found in the seeds, is considered to be among the most effective in reducing blood cholesterol levels and preventing oncological diseases from developing and spreading. Another component, phytic acid, helps restore the body’s mineral balance. Phytosterols boost the immune system, increase the body’s resistance to infections and reduce the risk of contracting the flu during an epidemic. The seeds also have another useful property – namely, they help fight obesity. The high amounts of calcium contained in sesame seed makes sure that one’s bones remain healthy and helps prevent osteoporosis. Sesame consumption increases blood platelet levels and improves blood clotting.

Sesame improves the condition of the nails and hair and has a positive effect on blood content. The seeds contain riboflavin, which influences human growth processes, and thiamine, which normalizes the metabolism and improves the functioning of the nervous system. The vitamin PP contained in sesame is highly beneficial for the digestive system. Sesame is especially beneficial for women aged 45 and older, as they contain phytoestrogens, which are considered to be a substitute for female hormones.

In order to get the most out of sesame seeds, they should be soaked in water before use. This is exactly what UAB “Veganas” does: before making our crackers, we soak them in cold water for 12 hours.

Water-soaked sesame seeds are found in the following crackers:

  • Linseed crackers with sesame seeds.
  • Linseed crackers with coconut.

 

Almonds


Fat accounts for half of the nutrients found in almonds, that is, 49,42 g per 100 g. Protein accounts for slightly more than 20 g, dietary fiber for 12 g, carbohydrates for 10 g, water for 4,7 g and the ash content is 2,99 g.

The greatest benefit of almonds lies in their high content of vitamin E. This vitamin is one of the most important antioxidants that prevent premature cell aging and protect the body against the damage done by free radicals. Almonds also contain concentrated vitamins that belong to the B group, without which the smooth functioning of our bodies would have been impossible.

Almonds have tangible benefits for patients with bladder stones, as they help remove sand from the kidneys. Almonds normalize the functioning of the liver and spleen and cleanse the blood.

Apricots

To produce its linseed crackers, UAB “Veganas” uses dried apricots. Dried apricots cannot boast an abundance of vitamins, but they contain plenty more minerals than fresh apricots, including potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron and phosphorus. There also is a considerable quantity of organic acids and pectin, which effectively eliminate any traces of heavy metals and radionuclides from the body. The sweetness of dried apricots is due to their high content of glucose, sucrose and fructose, whose combined share may exceed 80%.

 

Apricots contain a large amount of potassium (305 mg% for fresh fruit and up to 1717 mg% for dried ones), so they are invaluable when it comes to restoring this important trace element in the entire cardiovascular system. They are particularly benificial for those who suffer from arrhythmia, myocardial infarction and high blood pressure. Potassium salts help cleanse the kidneys and eliminate excess fluids from the body, which is useful for patients with kidney disease. Apricots are rich in phosphorus and magnesium, which contributes to brain functioning, improves memory and nerve impulse conductivity.

The copious quantities of iron contained in these fruit are easily absorbed into the body, so apricots are recommended for patients with anaemia or for pregnant women with toxicosis.

Oranges and lemons

The most valuable vitamin found in citrus fruit is vitamin C, which not only strengthens the immune system, but also protects cells from adverse environmental effects and fights premature aging.

Along with ascorbic acid, these fruit are rich in vitamins belonging to the B group, which help overcome insomnia, skin and hair problems, and simply put us in a better mood. B-group vitamins also have a positive effect on cardiovascular functioning. Furthermore, citrus fruit contain phytoncides, substances that kill or inhibit the growth and development of bacteria and microscopic fungi.

One could say that oranges are the most vitamin-rich of all citrus fruit. Their vitamin C content is as high as that of lemons, but in addition, they boast a far greater amount of B-group vitamins. What is more, their color demonstrates that they contain vitamin A, which is necessary for maintaining good eyesight and a healthy skin. These fruit are rich in pectin, which has a beneficial effect on the digestive system. The natural sugars found in oranges have a positive effect on brain activity.

One of the most useful parts of an orange is the skin. It is the skin that contains the most vitamin C, flavonoids and solid fibers, which have a positive effect on the digestive tract. The fiber creates a feeling of satiation as it swells, and contributes to the elimination of excess carbohydrates. Orange oil is a great treatment for oral illnesses.

In ancient times, oranges were used to treat wounds and ulcers, as they contain phytoncides, which kill germs. Oranges have traditionally been employed in the prevention and treatment of vitamin deficiencies, reduced gastric acidity and chronic constipation.

Since ancient times, people have used lemon as a remedy against the common cold or influenza. The popularity of lemons is due not only to the large amounts of ascorbic acid, but also to citrine, a substance that makes the vitamin C more readily absorbable by the body and aids in the removal of toxins. Lemons have numerous benefits for those who suffer from diabetes, as they can greatly improve the metabolism. The scent of lemon peels helps to relax, relieve stress and fatigue.

Research has shown that citrus fruit significantly reduce the risk of certain malignant growths, such as cancer of the oral cavity, stomach, pharynx and larynx.
