Complete food-Part 3
GoCLN Natural Complete Meals are designed with as many natural ingredients as possible.
As I wrote last time, if you write the definition or requirements of a "complete diet" very roughly, you could say that it covers all officially recognized essential nutritional components.
In other words, it satisfies the requirements for the five major nutrients, although there are rules based on various ways of thinking rather than just one.
Furthermore, when we look at products that belong to the "complete food" category around the world, we notice that there are some differences in design and philosophy. One aspect of this is energy, which is the difference between around 400 kcal, around 200 kcal, or 50 to 60 kcal per meal. I would like to separately discuss the three major nutrients that make up this energy (protein, fat, and carbohydrates), but the remaining minerals and vitamins can be said to be typical nutrients that have been recognized through supplements, etc. Masu.
To put it bluntly, is it enough for your body to consume these nutrients to lead a healthy life? And I see many people saying yes to that. Is that really what it is?
Speaking of cars, if you can operate the steering wheel, change gears, accelerator, brakes, and turn signals, you may be able to drive on a sunny day. So what if you can't use the wipers on a rainy day? I sometimes see cars driving without their lights on at night, but is that okay? What about driving for long periods without air conditioning in the hot summer?
In my opinion, a design that satisfies the specified amount of nutrients may be close to being able to perform basic operations. You won't be able to drive more comfortably unless you use more detailed functions. How many drivers know and can fully utilize all the functions of a car? Is there a food that is just as nutritious?
The general definition of vitamins can be said to be ``substances that are not biosynthesized within the body and must be taken in from outside.'' However, in reality, some of the substances classified as vitamins are also synthesized within the body. Some have been. This means that the amount alone is not enough, so you need to get it from outside. In fact, some vitamins have been added and classified as vitamins in recent years based on this idea.
I have heard many opinions that there is no need to take in substances that are synthesized within the body from outside, but even if they are synthesized within the body, there are other substances that need to be taken in from outside. There seem to be many.
Some are called quasi-vitamins or vitamin-like substances. Codex, the international food standard for infant milk, lists choline, inositol, and L-carnitine as essential nutrients for babies in the next category of vitamins. These substances are called "Conditionally Essential Nutrients" and are recognized as important nutrients. In other words, during infancy, it has the same meaning as vitamins.
Consider adulthood rather than infancy. For example, if you eat a variety of foods on a daily basis, have lived a healthy life without getting sick for as long as you can remember, and have no particular purpose for your physical condition, then you may not need these substances. However, for example, when you are in a state of fatigue, when you are training your body, during a specific growth period, or when you are controlling your diet for a special purpose (e.g. when controlling your weight), These nutrients may become necessary because there are "conditions" that go beyond simple physical requirements.
To put it bluntly, the nutritional requirements that are currently established are reliable based on the scientific perspective that has been established to date, and if you meet them, you will generally remain healthy (except for special circumstances). It means that you can do it.
Some people may say that's fine, but I don't know if the same can be said for a long time.
If you eat a variety of foods, there is a high possibility that you are consuming these "substances that are not specified but may be necessary." However, what happens with a "complete food" made up of only pure substances? (Maybe no one knows the complete answer)
At this time, we thought that if we were to eat naturally derived ingredients that contain a variety of substances, which are called ``superfoods,'' we could cover this point to a large extent, and GoCLN's natural complete diet was designed. . In that sense, ideally it would be better if there was a ``complete diet'' in which the ingredients used were changed to seasonal ones, but unfortunately we cannot reach that point at the moment.
In any case, there are many things in the natural world that have not been scientifically explained to date. The idea of organic farming, including farming methods, is to make the most of the great power of nature.
GoCLN wants to provide "complete meals" that incorporate the idea of benefiting from nature.
