On a quest to make everyone’s poo better (& improve overall gut health), Aussie Mum Jeanie McClymont is literally mixing up an end to backed-up digestive systems!
Drawing on her wealth of knowledge garnered working as a trained Naturopath in chemists and health food stores, Jeanie developed goodMix’s Blend11, her Australian made, best-selling functional food blend.
While many Australians may be coming close to an adequate fibre intake, Jeanie’s concern was with the fibre diversity required to create overall good gut health. A regular intake of diverse fibre (plant cell walls) is needed to cultivate & maintain a healthy & varied gut microbiome. Not happy with the breakfast options available, Jeanie set out to re-think the first meal of the day and carefully crafted, tried and tested Blend11. Loaded with seeds, nuts and a little fruit, Blend11 contains eleven of the finest plant ingredients to support gut microbiome resulting in the best poos ever (a claim easily confirmed by reading the Facebook reviews!)
To complement Blend11, Jeanie has been developing and perfecting the goodMix collection of five products since 2012 to ensure high quality and efficacy, but also versatility for customers. Blend11, NeoBlend, Pondwater, Bixmix and Ballbags are all notable for being gluten free, nutrient dense, high in fibre, antioxidant rich, zero refined sugars, high in plant protein and containing Australian grown & certified organic ingredients wherever possible.
Whether you are craving a sweet treat or a highly nutritious meal, goodMix products offer flexibility and endless meal and snacking options. With just a few extra ingredients Blend11 transforms into a cauliflower, pumpkin, pinenut & paprika salad, or indulge in a guilt-free peanut butter cheesecake with BallBags. For the little and bigs kids, supergreen gummy lollies with Pondwater will be a special treat.
After establishing a demand locally, Jeanie’s home grown business is now supplying hundreds of retailers nationwide and garnering international reputation throughout the USA with production also happening in a Vermont food hub, supplying local retailers as well as amazon prime.
The goodMix range includes:
Certified by Monash University as low FODMAP, the best-seller,Blend11 is a functional food booster that seems to make an ‘irritable bowel’ very happy. A simple but nutritious blend of chia, almonds, pepitas, coconut, buckwheat, flaxseeds, sesame seeds, goji berries, raw cacao nibs, puffed amaranth and puffed millet. Rich in diverse dietary fibre and ready to add to fruit, yoghurt, smoothies, shakes, muesli or cereal, Blend11 comes alive after it is moistened in water for a minimum of eight hours. Overnight soaking triggers the activation process, stimulates enzyme release and allows the seeds to easily pass through the digestive system making them nutritionally available. In the bowel, gut microbes ferment the fibres into short chain fatty acids (SCFA’s) which have gut-healing, anti-inflammatory & immune boosting effects.
