Gluten is a general name for the proteins found in wheat, rye, barley and triticale – a cross between wheat and rye. Gluten helps foods maintain their shape, acting as a glue that holds food together. Gluten can be found in many types of foods, even ones that would not be expected.
It’s clear that some people must avoid it for health reasons, such as those with celiac disease or an intolerance. However, many in the health and wellness world suggest that everyone should follow a gluten-free diet — regardless of whether they’re intolerant or not. These gluten proteins are resistant to human digestion.
Derinlezzetler gluten free production facilities are periodically inspected according to BRC Food standards. We use non-GMO, local seeds and naturally gluten-free alternatives, such as flour mixtures, almond flour, coconut flour, buckwheat flour, chickpea flour, pea flour and carob flour, in Healthy & Happy products.

Protein is the building block of our bodies’ smallest units, cells, and is essential for those looking to lose weight or build muscle.
Protein is a macro nutrient found in meat, milk, dairy products, eggs, some dried nuts and fruits, and some legumes. Proteins are made up of amino acids, which form our skin, hair, bones and muscles, synthesize lean body tissue and are the primary source of nitrogen in our bodies. Positive nitrogen balance is important for muscle building and repair. Our bodies work 30 percent more when absorbing proteins compared to fat and carbohydrates. This is why high-protein diets are thought to help increase the metabolic rate and burn fat. BACK TO TOP ^
No-flour diet followers prefer foods that do not contain the white flours of local seeds, which are wheat flour, wholewheat flour, rye, bran, einkorn and farro. They instead prefer milled flours that contain natural fruits and seeds, such as flaxseed flour, coconut flour, almond flour and carob flour. BACK TO TOP ^
The ketogenic diet is based around the consumption of low-carb, high-fat foods. The aim is to minimize the intake of carbohydrates while maximizing fat consumption.
The main goal is to bring the body into ketosis by consuming fewer carbohydrates. When this happens, the body starts to prefer burning fat for energy instead of using carbohydrates. The liver also starts to convert fat into ketones, which can power the brain. Protein intake is limited. BACK TO TOP ^
A diet consisting of fresh, unheated vegetables, fruits, beans and seeds. Cold-processed oils and unfiltered, unpasteurized raw and natural ingredients are preferred. Food that requires cooking is prepared in special ovens called dehydrators, which circulate 42-degree air inside them, to preserve their nutritional values.
Vegan & Vegetarian: A diet and a lifestyle, which avoids all food of animal origin.
