STAMBA believes strongly in the role of science in advancing human nutrition. We see its primary value in validating the efficacy of Nature's bounty as opposed to modifying, or synthetically re-fabricating it.
The concept of food synergy, while new to science, is not new to humanity. The basic premise that, “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” is one that we have been adhering to as long as we have been consuming food from Nature. Eating an apple, for instance, is not the same as consuming isolated components found in apples, separately. Rather, the totality of valuable components in the apple work together with one another (and our digestive system when consumed) to deliver the health benefits that the apple has to offer to us. Isolated nutrients usually cannot be assimilated without the help of other symbiotic or supporting nutrients. It’s the synergistic effect of many different nutrients in balance that benefits assimilation and integration of the beneficial components found in whole foods.
Food synergy also takes place when multiple whole-foods are combined. This action commonly creates a sensorial experience in the culinary arts: the flavor and texture combinations found in a great dish transcend a simple assemblage of disparate parts, they create something uniquely great by working in unison.
Today, food science is beginning to explore food synergy with greater respect for its therapeutic benefits. At STAMBA, we are committed to furthering this exploration through investing in the study of the benefits of Earth's most prized whole foods working synergistically with one another for preventive and curative effect. We call this focus True Superfood Synergy; showing and sharing how integrated whole-food nutrition significantly improves the quality and longevity of our life.
