Our Nutritional Principles

Nutritional balance is at the core of Lima’s products

Nutritional balance is at the core of Lima’s products

A well-balanced organic and vegan diet is naturally low in saturated fat and can provide your body with proteins, fibres, magnesium, potassium, antioxidants, and vitamin C.

Lima products can help you create your own nutritional harmony with:

Whole grains

The nutrients and fibres contained in the sprouts, kernels, and seeds of these grains are preserved.

A preference for slow sugars

Sugars can be divided into two groups: fast or simple sugars and slow or complex sugars. Fast sugars, like those found in fruit, are absorbed quickly by the body and release their energy rapidly. Complex or slow sugars, found in grains, bread, or pasta, release their energy into the body slowly. A good balance of both is key.

Avoiding sugar and sweeteners

We try wherever possible to avoid adding any sugars or sweeteners to our products.  Where necessary, we use grain or fruit syrups such as rice syrup or carob.

Plant-based proteins

A smart combination of cereals and vegetables provides your body with all the proteins it cannot produce itself.

Unsaturated fats

They are key components of a healthy diet and are vital for efficient metabolism. Grains and nuts, along with products derived from them, are valuable sources of plant-based unsaturated fats.

The harmony of nutritions ​​and excellent taste

We follow our main nutritional principles: 100% plant-based, favoring wholefood and avoiding sugars.

We offer organic products that comply with the European organic label and go even further by testing our products for allergenes, pesticides and any unwanted elements in our Lima Expert Lab.

We preserve “natural harmony” as much as possible - the flavors and nutritional properties of the plants we use. We favor “slow positive transformations” like fermentation, infusion, smoking.

We create new nutritional and taste harmonies by offering surprising combinations or by having you discover new products from different culinary traditions, especially from Japan.

We offer you nutritional alternatives, so that our products are adapted to your specific needs: gluten-free, lactose-free, less salt, enriched in fibers or in proteins or caffeine-free…

We offer nutrient-dense condiments -Lima’s condiments are produced through traditional methods like fermentation. Fermented nutrients have a higher nutritional value together with a delicious taste.
