Healthy pastry, our contribution to the Health Hackers Meeting

Does healthy pastry actually exist? At Jordi Bordas we have always been very careful about using this adjective since we believe that in order to be 100% healthy, a recipe needs to be composed only of ingredients beneficial for our health. That is why we typically refer to our products as “healthier”.

For technical reasons, it is often difficult to eliminate from our recipes those ingredients that are detrimental to our health, but it is not impossible! Over the last few weeks, we have been working on two very special products to which, yes, we can attribute the label "healthy!healthy". Thanks to all the knowledge that the B·Concept method gives us, we are able to formulate very specific recipes with the attributes we want.

It all began when our friend  Xevi Verdaguer, a specialist in psychoneuroimmunology, asked us to participate in the second edition of  Health Hackers Meeting, an event organized by him and his team during 28th and 29thof September in Mas Les Comelles Parc Cultural.

The proposal consisted of developing recipes with functional and nutritious ingredients, capable not only of not harming our health, but also of improving it. As you know, this type of challenge fascinates us and, as expected, we immediately got down to work. The result? A spectacular buckwheat and seed bread and a delicious cocoa cake.

From here, we want to thank Xevi for the opportunity to collaborate. We have learned a lot about ingredients and their impact on our digestive system. Of course, this knowledge is of vital importance when creating our own recipes and to continue fulfilling the three basic pillars of our bakery: healthier, lighter and tastier.

We leave you the two videos we recorded with Xevi in which, in addition to the recipes, you will discover all the technical and functional secrets of each ingredient used. In each of the posts you will find everything you need to consult it whenever you want.
