Raw Food Powder?

Warning this story links to a Promotional Site...However I think the products processing methods are quite different and worth a look.

I've never been much of a fan of the "Green Drinks" For the most part the processing of the ingredients undergo some pretty extreme methods of extraction not to mention the origin of the ingredients themselves. Recently I found quite by accident a company that grows much of the ingredients in their "Powder" and has a very interesting drying process that has convinced me to give them a try.

This Quote from their site was interesting...It places these products within the "Raw Food" category based on temperature processing.

"Our proprietary process takes newly harvested, fresh-pressed 34°F liquid juice to powder within 30 seconds. During this process, the product temperature averages 65°F and never exceeds 100°F, which is considered phenomenal in the drying industry."

" perfect drying process is the key to maintaining the nutritional integrity of the fresh whole foods being dried. Unlike typical drying processes used in the nutritional supplement industry, the proprietary URI International drying process maintains, rather than compromises, the naturally occurring nutritional content in whole foods. Our unique and proprietary process preserves the nutritional integrity and life force of the fresh produce being dried, which is essential to health and well being."

Here is a link for information about these products. Warning this site is promotional but the information is quite interesting. See if you agree that this product has some advantages over others on the market.

Sunflower Oil Sucking?

Well actually it is called "Oil Pulling" and it has to be one of the more unusual healing methods I have come across in many years. Here is an exerpt from the website "Oil Pulling a Wonderful Therapy" (see link at bottom of post)

After all cold pressed oil would be considered a "Raw Food" Wouldn't It?

I hate to send you away from this blog but this is worth it.....come back soon.

Dr. F. Karach, M.D., presented a paper before the All-Ukrainian Association. The meeting was attended by oncologists and bacteriologists belonging to the Academy of Science of the USSR. Dr. Karach explained an unusual simple healing process using cold-pressed oils.
The results of this therapy invoked astonishment and doubt concerning the contents of his report. However, after further examining the workings of the oil therapy, one has but to then test it on oneself to prove its validity and effectiveness. It is most astonishing that such results can be achieved with this absolutely harmless biological healing method. This simple method makes it possible to effectively treat the most varied diseases, in some cases enabling one to avoid surgical intervention and the taking of medications that can have harmful side effects.The exciting factor of this healing method is its simplicity. It consists of swishing cold-pressed oil in the mouth( Sunflower or Seasme, Pl. note you don't need to go for organic oils only, A normal refined sunflower oil bought from any supermarket proven to be effective in many people). The healing process is accomplished by the human organism on its own. In this way it is possible to heal cells, tissue and all organs simultaneously; the body itself gets rid of toxic waste without disturbing the healthy microflora. Dr. Karach says human beings are living only half their life span. They could potentially live healthy to be 140 to 150 years old.

I wonder if the oil produced by the "Ringing Cedars of Russia" (See the archieved posts on this healing tree) might be even more powerful than Sunflower oil.
