Functional gourmet food is made in the kitchen, not in the lab. At Monk nutrition we're based on old established active ingredient formulas proven by age. Raw materials are only processed to maintain or enhance natural quality. Quality and taste are our priority. Finding the right extraordinary raw materials often takes ages, so we only have a few products, but every product is a gift. The gift of nature, without taste substitutes, pure without preservatives and other health enhancements.
High-quality raw material deserves a high-quality processing process and it can only be fully utilised in this way. Our kitchen is our monastery, where every single element must function like a watch. Extraordinary raw materials with extraordinary properties are being enhanced here. We approach each raw material with the entire monastery's knowledge and experience. Our kitchen is full of modern equipment, because at Monk nutrition we're looking for the best raw materials processing possible. Vacuum cooking, slow cooking, ice baths, RAW processing are a matter of course for us. Our ingredients are rich in taste and usually also rich in vitamins. Recipes and processing are designed to support the usability of vitamins while maintaining the greatest possible number of vitamins.
Monk's nutrition is pure and based on traditions. A Monk doesn't think about how to profit from people by adding chemicals, he doesn't even think about how to earn. Monk offers you pure recipes and looks for ways to help and improve health. At Monk Nutrition, we realise that functional food needs to have rich health benefits as well as taste great. It's only through taste that we can eat functional foods regularly to get the maximum effect from them. Monk Gourmet's taste and overall approach to creating functional foods is what can help you to improve your sports feelings, enjoy sport and be happier. Giving yourself a great taste of the gifts of nature from monks for great performance.
Variety of flavours - taste without flavours
As soon as we find the right extraordinary quality raw materials, we try to make something special from them. This is how Monk energy gels have been created, where each taste is different, from different natural ingredients. A stable base is made-up of premium agave syrup from a small family farm in Mexico, where they process the Agave cactus traditionally into sweet nectar straight after harvest. Thanks to the processing quality, they get the perfect agave syrup that we've known for centuries and which isn't distorted by commercial culture.
The distinctly sweet taste is complemented by well-known ingredients of exceptional quality such as Tanzanian organic cocoa, organic forest raspberry and strawberry or organic lemon. You'll also find unconventional raw materials here such as African baobab in organic quality, ceremonial organic green Matcha tea and many others. We're looking for a quality that also tastes good so we don't have to add any flavour to Monk energy gels. You can only enjoy the perfect juicy full fruit taste without adding any colorants, preservatives, stabilisers and other ailments of modern times.
At Monk nutrition we discover the perfection of nature and create products from it just for you. This is how our gel was created, looking for the best source of energy for the body in nature and combining it with premium raw materials.
Carbohydrates, Electrolytes ...
Our ancient ancestors didn't have any scientific evidence of why something works, how the body uses it to make it work. They only knew it worked. The beginning of Monk's energy gels was based on an ancient recipe from the ancient Inca, who used cactus nectar as a secret weapon in long battles comparing them to divine power. We don't know the mysterious potion, myth or history, nowadays, we know that the Monk nutrition tradition was born here. We look for traditional procedures and combine them with modern knowledge to always get the best you can get from nature.
The taste and quality of nature always at hand
When you enjoy the gel, you feel better and you perform better.
Purity of raw materials
Quality without pesticides, insecticides, fungicides ...
This is what we're looking for, we are realists, and for us Organic certification isn't the only aspect of quality. We visit the farmers with whom we work personally and support those who care about quality. Small family farms are often unable to afford the Organic certification process, and we support and help them, the main thing for us is to maintain quality. For example, cocoa also has Fairtrade ...
Our gels also receive Organic certification gradually and we understand the whole process. The important thing for us is that they have always been delivering that quality and haven't look for an easier method with less quality.
