Metals Naturally Occurring Constituents in Healthy Soils
What is Considered Toxic?
LOS ANGELES, May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Axiom Foods, whose Oryzatein® enzyme-extracted, brown rice protein is supplied to food and beverage manufacturers throughout the U.S., Europe and other countries, is embarking on a campaign to educate consumers about the reality of heavy metals in plant food-As Dr. Oz said in a recent segment, the people have the right to know the truth. It is important to know that those whose diets consist mostly of vegetables have a naturally higher heavy metal contribution to their bodies* than those who ingest an animal-based diet, especially with the sharp rise in vegetarianism and veganism in the U.S. (Google Trends reported a doubling of veganism since 2010). Axiom, an ethically-based food ingredient provider, has been on a mission to educate consumers on all of the aspects of how and why metals naturally occur in vegetables that grow in healthy soil, so they can make informed decisions about their intake and understand if and when those levels are toxic to the organs and other parts of the body.
The problem with any metals, beneficial or not, is when the substance reaches toxic levels in the body.
Here is a list of facts:
"Because we provide whole grain brown rice protein to food manufacturers worldwide," said Axiom CEO, David Janow, "certifying bodies such as the FDA and USDA watch what we do very closely and have come to us for intelligence on setting standards. Testing our products in the most well-respected and, most importantly, certified laboratories, is a continuous part of our daily process. Proper testing will make the difference between something that appears to be safe or toxic. We provide our test results to all our customers. We source from the most pristine fields in the world, avoiding polluted areas and changing sources if tests show otherwise. As makers of human food, we are in a highly responsible position and work as closely with Mother Nature as she will allow. At this time in history, avoiding pollution of any kind is no easy task, but it's something we pursue diligently as part of our standards and practices."
Axiom Foods is the most innovative source for allergen-friendly, whole grain brown rice ingredients and known for their natural and proprietary, hexane-free methodologies for extracting fractions of other plant-based ingredients such as pea protein, rice milk and others. Since 2005, the California-based company has maximized the potential of Oryzatein® whole grain brown rice protein, continuously sourcing from new and different pristine fileds around the world. Axiom continues to widen the possibilities of the world's third largest plant crop into healthful products on which humans thrive.
