While many plant-based formulations are effective for sustainability and our environment, not all products have the same positive impact on our bodies.

Some recipes that require plant proteins as the base also contain added ingredients that have been shown to negatively impact gut health and overall wellness.

Methylcellulose is a popular ultra-processed additive that is often used as a thickener, binding agent and gelling agent to retain moisture across both wet and dry Food applications.

As a non-organic ingredient that is unrecognizable to our immune systems, research shows that high amounts of methylcellulose can quickly lead to unwanted inflammation as our bodies work to [unsuccessfully] break down the unknown.
