Enzyme ACTivated Crackers

The aptly named EATRIGHT® Enzyme Activated Crackers are a crack'er of ingenuity with carefully pre:served enzymes. Importantly, they are NOT [a "JACK" up, hiJACKed [1] or "overPOWERing...paired...crackers"] that have "microbial enzymes" added back to an ingredient list.

Hence, we use slow and low processing (never above 121 degrees celsius or 248 degrees fahrenheit), and other maximize 'nutritional value' know-how to help enzymatic [*] (Gk. en within, zumē leaven) activity.

And since organic catalysts or catalyzing enzymes are 'dramatically enhanced by abiotic agents' (ozone, UV light, ethylene, salicylic acid (nb. non-isolated salicylate sources: buckwheat, piper sp.), minerals (soil nutrients such as chromium, copper, boron, manganese etc)), we source as many as possible grown outdoors in NEW ZEALAND's 'more sun [UVB in particular], less air pollution, fewer pest and diseases' harvested ingredients.

The minerals and vitamins are also considered to be “better absorbed” through synergistic combinations of endogenous enzymes rather than synthetic ‘silver bullet’ single cell proteins (SCP) or other 'isolates'. And, where possible, we use 'wild' varietals. For instance, wild carrots have an increased source of phytochemical: trans-isoasarone with bioactivity: secretolytic (secretagogue (Gk. agogos)) and wild kawakawa (Macropiper excelsum [Latin: pipo=chirp, excel=surpass]) has over 60 biologically active compounds.

As you would expect, it is yet another durable [2], commercialized EATRIGHT® ‘edible medicine’ innovation scarcity (R&D&C), standing out in a sea of similarity! [†]. And did you know "the doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will instruct his patients in care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease" by Thomas A. Edison (1847-1931).
