About ScotMaple Foods
ScotMaple Foods is a healthy foods brand with a primary objective to help people live healthier lives by providing healthier food choices.
We achieve this by providing a range of healthier alternatives to most of the common food types available.
ScotMaple Foods has been developed from our connections with Scotland and Canada, two countries that have a passion for high quality food products and a shared historical heritage that dates back as far as the 17th century.
Charities We Support
At ScotMaple, we are driven to help people make healthier choices in their lifestyle including the foods they eat.
We also provide support to local charities in educating the local population about these health issues and how good food choices can improve their lives and help manage any existing health conditions.
We are happy to identify with and support the work of these charities.
Diabetes is a disease in which the body cannot self regulate the production or use of insulin. There are two major types:
Type 1 – Which needs to be treated with insulin injected into the body and by consciously living a healthy lifestyle.
Type 2 – A more common type, which can mostly be managed with healthy foods, regular exercise and in some cases, managed by medication.
In either case, if left untreated or is poorly managed, diabetes has a potential to lead to further health complications.
Oat has been scientifically proven to help regulate blood sugar, for those at risk of diabetes. This is because oats have a low GI (glycaemic index) which means they increase blood sugar levels gradually and over a longer period of time.
Celiac Disease Charities
Celiac disease is a serious autoimmune disorder that can occur in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. It is estimated to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide. Two and one-half million Americans are undiagnosed and are at risk for long-term health complications.
Oat in its natural occurring form is gluten free, and therefore an ideal food replacement for those who suffer from this condition. Incidentally, oat flour easily replaces wheat flour in all the food where wheat is used.
Heart Disease Charities
High blood pressure is a major risk factor for stroke and heart disease, a condtion that is particularly prevalent in middle aged adults. For most types of heart disease, maintaining a healthy lifestyle which includes eating healthy foods, physical activity, and avoiding the abuse of tobacco products is a key part of preventing these heart diseases.
