Introducing Allergens to Babies
Food allergies among children in the UK are on the rise. Dr Sophie explains how to safely introduce allergens to your baby.
Vitamins and micronutrients are very heat-sensitive. This means they are destroyed when exposed to extreme heat. By cold-pressing, we avoid heating the meals while they are made, so we preserve these important nutrients for your baby.
For example, Vitamin C usually gets destroyed when you boil a meal. Our processing method preserves it, so your little one can enjoy all the benefits, such as increasing iron absorption and supporting your child’s immune system.
As mentioned, the cold-pressure method that we are using is a very gentle method which allows us to naturally keep fresh taste, texture and colours of organic ingredients intact. What does this mean for your little one? He or she will get used to the real taste of veggies from early on. This will help to develop a preference for these from early on.
We naturally extend our meals life-time (we never use preservatives!) and make sure the product is safe for your little ones. The pressure used in the process literary squeezes down bacteria that could contaminate the food and therefore naturally extend the (refrigerated) shelf-life up to several weeks.
At Little Tummy, we use a cold-pressure-method, also known as “high-pressure-processing” or “high-pressure-protected” (HPP). Using this method allows us to lock in fresh flavours and textures but most importantly the natural vitamins and nutrients of our organic ingredients.
Here is a very easy explanation video how HPP works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_2Wc1a0x7U
