Enzymes like the natural release of amylase and protease, which break down starch, carbohydrates and protein, promoting unmatched digestibility, while lowering the glycemic index. That is why Food For Life refuses to use acidifying agents. Food For Life always uses the best possible ingredients to maintain the quality of all their products..
