Mani composes its products from super food, richer than others in terms of nutrition. Many studies cover the health benefits of these exceptionally gifted products of nature. Discover them here.
We often hear about superfood, food that has high nutritional virtues and that offers health benefits.
Mani integrates this principle into the products that it offers you.
Rich in fibres and plant proteins, almonds have an interesting level of unsaturated fatty-acids. Several studies link these fats to a reduction in the risk of cardiovascular disease. Lastly, few foods have accumulated levels of potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus as high as almonds.
In addition, the sodium content (salt) is very low (1-2 mg/100g), while at the same time its antioxidant level is high. Almonds produced by Mani are roasted dry; so they have no bad added fat.
Pineapple is a good source of manganese and vitamin C. Rich in fibres, it also has antioxidant properties. Pineapple also has digestive virtues. Present in the `Sweet Cocktail’ recipe, it has natural sugars while maintaining a very low glycemic load. Its bittersweet flavour prolongs the pleasure of demanding taste buds.
With more than thirty minerals and trace elements, vitamins of group A, B and C, essential fatty-acids and a large amount of antioxidants, goji berries fully deserve their reputation as a super food.
Full of calories, the goji berries contained in `Berry&Nuts’ were dosed so as to bring the full richness of this fruit sometimes called “the fruit of longevity” by respecting a controlled calorie intake.
As with all the other non-irradiated ingredients in its mixes, Mani sources its fruit in secular culture areas. In the case of goji berries, it is of course from China and the region of Ningxia known for its traditional agriculture and the absence of use of pesticides.

Rich in vitamin C and one of the small fruits richest in precious antioxidant compounds, cranberries reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and several disorders connected with ageing. Moreover, studies have shown a link between cranberry consumption and the prevention of infections in the urinary system.

Although an explanation has not yet been found for these effects, several potentially active substances (unsaturated fatty-acids, zinc and phytosterols) have been identified in pumpkin seeds and the assumptions abound. Among noted effects, pumpkin seeds can relieve symptoms of irritable bladder (or an overactive bladder) and micturition disorders associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). To maintain all their good properties, Mani adds raw and dry roasted pumpkin seeds to the “Berry&Nuts” mix.
Low in calories, but rich in fibres and vitamin C, Papaya is also a good source of potassium and calcium. Its antioxidant properties have been demonstrated in various studies, it is difficult, however, to currently affirm that eating this fruit helps fight against certain diseases.
Mani introduced dried papaya in “Sweet Cocktail” for its strong fibre content (recommended at least 5 fruits and vegetables per day), as well as its anti-radicular power and for the pleasure that its unique taste gives, without the calories.
The star nutrients of pistachios are copper and the vitamin B6, however these are not the only assets of these fruits of the family of the nuts family. Pistachios are very rich in antioxidants, chemical compounds which can contribute to reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, certain types of cancers and diseases related to ageing. Sources of fibres and low in calories, they are the perfect complement of a balanced diet. Mani has lots of experience in the farming, preparation and conservation of pistachios to be monitored for mycotoxins (toxic substances synthesized by microscopic mushrooms) which they contain naturally – one more reason to choose Mani rather than other producers.
Cashew nuts are a good source of minerals and trace elements (in particular potassium, magnesium and iron), as well as vitamins of group B and E. Dry-roasted (no oil added) with no salt added, the cashew nuts Mani sells are rich in mono-unsaturated fatty-acids whose benefits in cardiovascular health and the reduction in LDL, i.e. bad cholesterol, are well known. Cashew nuts also provide fibres, and high levels of vitamin E with antioxidant powers.
Raisins bring us mineral salts, vitamins of group B and energy by virtue of their high content in carbohydrates. They concentrate all the benefits of the grape including that of a high percentage of fructans. Several studies suggest that fructans could protect us from colorectal cancer and reduce blood triglycerides.
A handful of raisins is always better than high fat energy bars. Naturally sweet, raisins are excellent alternatives to candies. Mani’s raisins have the great advantage of not being treated with sulphites, which can cause allergic reactions.
Delicious, chewy White Mulberries are low in calories (only 43 calories per 100 g), rich in antioxidants, minerals and vitamins that are essential for optimum health. White Mulberries contain alkaloids that activate white blood cells stimulating the immune system.
In addition, White Mulberries contain compounds that support balanced blood sugar level.
