Ginger *SEEd & Switchel* Cookies

A great tasting, nature inspired EATRIGHT® seed, not wheat, cookie with fibrinolytic ginger "zing" (fibrinolysis enzyme activators: curcumin, niacin), native raw bush honey (bees collecting from Kunzea ericoides, Nothofagus solandri var. solandri and fusca (endemic to the Nelson region of New Zealand), a claimable source of preformed vitamin K2 and 'not from concentrate' apple cider vinegar (a controlled ferment with 'Mother' wild-type, non-engineered bacteria).

When we updated the ingredients [^^] we included "switchel" [switchel is a vinegar drink, seasoned with ginger and sweetened with honey, of British America origin]. But, in this product, it is non diluted with 'short time' processing.

It has a solid food matrix for prophylactic digestibility (less gas and wind emissions [whistle v.i. & t.], less flatuence [L pedo break wind] on a petomane scale), regulation of energy and absorption of inherent bioactives ie essential mineral and vitamin nutrients in the product [NOT over-processed removal, then added back to recapture with fortifiers or isolates].
