Quality

What is Feel Well Synbiotic Greek Yogurt's unique value proposition?  

We honestly think we have the best product in the market. There is no other locally-produced synbiotic Greek yogurt.

Probiotic with Prebiotics.  It is all natural, no refined sugar and no added sugar, no stabilizers, emulsifiers, thickeners or other chemicals. It actually, really has live active cultures, the probiotics you are paying for.  All yogurts contain yogurt starters. But not all commercially sold yogurt has live active cultures by the time it gets to your ref and stomach.  The criterion established by the U.S. National Yogurt Association is that there be live cultures DURING manufacture. So manufacturers may put "With live active cultures!" on their labels as long as there were live cultures while the yogurt was in the factory production line. However, many yogurts no longer contain the cutoff level of live culture after weeks on the supermarket shelves.  It matters because an effective probiotic must survive the arduous trek through the digestive system so it can build balanced bacterial communities.  Feel Well delivers an honest high quality product.

Quality is assured when source, growing, storage, and handling are thoughtfully managed.  Quality of raw materials comes from strict criteria, high standards for sourcing. Feel Well's sustainable raw materials are the products of natural farming where soil, plants, and livestock are spared harsh treatment from chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers, and commercial feeds.

Quality of finished product comes from use of the best, natural, handpicked ingredients, and careful small batch processing.

Our partner suppliers are:

-Bambu Organic Farm, Abra: for probiotic chicken, eggs, and mangoes

-Solfruits, Inc. in Clark Freeport Zone: for preparatory processing and storage of mangoes and dragonfruit

-Dragonfruit Philippines Inc.'s (DPI) farm in Angeles, Pampanga: for dragonfruit

-Kajuayan's (organic food distributor) farmer partners in Nueva Vizcaya for yacon, and farmer partners in Quezon for coconut water and coconut meat

-Sunrise Dairy Farm by  Buffalo livestock farmer Melchor and Cynthia  Correa in San Jose City, Nueva Ecija in close proximity to the Philippine Carabao Center (PCC) for buffalo (carabao) milk. 

-Yamanko Farm Products in Sta. Cruz, Zambales, for bamboo-smoked sea salt.

From these partner-suppliers, the various materials are brought to the Synbiotic Food Corporation's test kitchen and production plant in Guiguinto, Bulacan (province adjacent to Metro Manila, considered the nex next international airport).

Materials:
-Milk
The milk comes from grass-fed buffalo, creamier and richer than cow's milk. It is essentially free of chemicals and hormones,  having been raised according to natural methods. Buffalo milk has Casein A2 protein which is easier to digest than Casein A1 prevalent in most cow's milk. Buffalo milk is 40% richer in protein,  58% richer in calcium, and richer in minerals than cow's milk. Yet it has 43% less cholesterol than cow's milk.

You know you can trust our products because we know our farmers.  Feel Well develops collaborative relationships with buffalo livestock family farms in San Jose City, Nueva Ecija. These farmers live in close proximity to and benefit from the technical support of the Philippine Carabao Center (PCC) and the leadership of fellow livestock farmer, Melchor Correa. Having chaired the Eastern Primary Multipurpose Cooperative (EPMC), Correa is looked up to by the dairy buffalo farmers in the area as a model of a successful dairy-based entrepreneur. From when he started in 2007 under the direction of the Philippine Carabao Center.  Correa now has around 50 riverine type Murrah buffalos from Brazil on his Sunrise Dairy Farm . The herd is cared for and fed organic grasses and legumes, grazing peacefully on Melchor's farm. Happy well-fed buffalos produce the rich milk Feel Well processes for you.

-Mango
The mangoes we use are the carabao variety, the Philippines' sweetest mango (Mangifera carabao). They are grown in Abra, harvested in season just before ripening . They are transported to fruit processors Solfruit, Inc. in the Clark Freeport Zone where they sit to ripen and mature to peak quality stage before they are washed, peeled, pureed, and frozen. 

-Yacon
The yacon is grown in the southern uplands of Nueva Vizcaya, 1500 m above sea level. It is a pest-resistant plant, organically grown.

-Salt
We use organic Yamanko bamboo-smoked roasted sea salt from Zambales.

-Packaging
Yogurt products are packed in recyclable glass jars.

Granola and Fiber Bites  are packed in biodegradable 
paper-based pouches.

Why Synbiotic?

You tend to your home garden,  what about your body’s own ecosystem? 

Probiotics are live microorganisms--good microbes the body needs to fight off bad bacteria.

They

--Suppress growth of harmful bacteria

--Improve the immune function, because

  close to 80% of the immune system is

  in the gut lining. By communicating

  with immune system cells, your gut

  microbiome controls how your body

  responds to infection

--Promote a healthier digestive tract.

  Help prevent: acidity

                         bloating

                         constipation

                         lactose intolerance

                         heartburn

                         weight gain

                            

Prebiotics are insoluble fiber (indigestible carbohydrates) which feed and stimulate PROBIOTICS to keep their vigor.

By combining Probiotics and Prebiotics FEEL WELL packages a symbiotic system for achieving the bacterial balance your body needs for optimum performance.

Yogurt and cheese are delicious fermented food, a vehicle for Probiotics to enter your system. That is what FEEL WELL delivers.

Good bacteria  +  Indigestible fiber = Symbiotic Food 

It all starts there.

Health Benefits

HEALTH BENEFITS

Food directly influences wellbeing and behavior.  After all, Hippocrates said that "All disease begins in the gut."  What Hippocrates, the "Father of Medicine" said 2000 years ago, has been validated by the latest scientific studies. Scientific research connects gut health with a wide range of conditions such as 

--Obesity 

--Diabetes

--Irritable Bowel Syndrome

--Parkinson's Disease

--Autoimmune Diseases

--Autism

--"Foggy" brain

Greek Yogurt 

Nutritionists say that a bowl of Greek yogurt is packed with essential nutrients such as protein,  calcium, potassium, iodine, and Vitamin B-12. This is aside from probiotics which balance the good and bad bacteria in the gut.

-Protein is essential to cell growth, building and regenerating muscle, and tissue repair.

-Calcium regulates output of the hormone cortisol which can cause the body to store fat.

-Potassium helps balance out sodium in the body.

-Iodine ensures proper thyroid function which in turn makes for healthy metabolism. Increased metabolism promotes weight loss.

-Vitamin B-12 is necessary for energy and healthy brain function.

Mango

The mango fruit itself (pulp) is rich in Vitamins A, B-6, C, K, Folate,  and Potassium.  It is also a source of fiber.

Mango Seed Kernel

The mango seed is high in phenolic compounds, carotenoids, Vitamin C, and dietary fiber. It is a good source of protein, essential amino acids, oleic and stearic acids. 

The presence of mineral antioxidants in mango seed has been scientifically reported (specifically potassium, copper, manganese, zinc, iron, and selenium). The mango seed has also been reported to have breast and colon anti-cancer activity as well as antimicrobial activity.

Mango Peel

The Royal Society of Chemistry reported in 2012 that Australian scientists concluded that chemicals in mango peel suppress the formation of fatty cells. 

*A further bonus is that mango seed and mango peel are upcycled biowastes from Feel Well's yogurt and mango processing, thus eliminating waste. This chimes in with Feel Well's zero waste principle.

Yacon

The yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius) is a tuber native to the Andes in South America.  It is considered a superfood. The yacon Feel Well uses is sourced from organic farmers situated at the foot of the Sierra Madre mountains in southern Nueva Vizcaya.

We use yacon as non-sugar sweetener as it has only a third of the caloric value of sugar.  It is in fact considered anti-diabetic.  Yacon is also an excellent source of fiber, being high in fructooligosaccgarides (FOS), a kind of fructans with excellent probiotic effect. When fructans reach the large intestines, they feed the friendly gut bacteria, further ensuring balance in your gut microbiome. A happy gut, a happy, healthy you!

Studies have shown yacon to have a high level of antioxidant activity arising from its significant amounts of bioactive  phenolic compounds.

As a result, yacon by itself confers the following benefits:

--Helps reduce constipation, bloating,

 and gastric ulcers;

--Prevents fat accumulation in the

 liver and maintains proper liver health

--Reduces levels of bad cholesterol and

 strain on the cardiovascular system

--Aids in managing diabetes

Coconut MCT

Coconut Medium Chain Triglycerides are fats found in coconut oil. Unlike other fats, they go straight from the gut to the liver where they are used as a source of energy or turned into ketones. Ketosis has been determined to have some beneficial effect on brain and memory function.

A scientific study published in 2009 suggests that consuming MCT-rich food may improve exercise endurance.

Evidence also suggests that MCTs play an important role in weight loss and management, as well as improvement in cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
