Q1: Is it good as a gift for cancer patients?
Biogreen O’Tigres Organic Black Bean Powder (Cane Sugar Free) is a protein-rich product made from organic black beans, organic cane sugar and oligosaccharide. It is rich in anthocyanins, a type of antioxidants vital for warding off free radicals and reducing oxidative damage. It serves as good source of iron, folic acid and molybdenum, which helps the body to form healthy red blood cells and excreting sulphite preservatives (commonly found in processed foods or carbonated beverages). Additionally, black sesame seeds are rich in zinc, which could help to improve appetite and reverse loss of the sense of taste, usually associated with radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Meanwhile, the oligosaccharide serves as prebiotic to promote the growth of friendly bacteria and enhance calcium absorption in the gut.
On the other hand, Biogreen 100% Pure Black Sesame Powder is made from 100% ground black sesame without added sugar, artificial colourings, preservatives and flavourings and roasted at low temperature to retain its nutrients. Black sesame is high in calcium that helps to strengthen bone and teeth density. It also provides iron which is vital to increase red blood cells, maintain healthy blood circulation and prevent anaemia. Therefore, this package is suitable for consumption by cancer patients.
