Purition is suitable at all life-stages, including during pregnancy and breastfeeding and this is because the same, healthy and balanced diet is recommended to pregnant and breastfeeding women as it is to everyone else:
A healthy, balanced diet consists mostly of real, unprocessed (and minimally processed) whole foods as foods such as these will keep your body functioning well and are healthier than processed alternatives. Such a diet would be naturally high in fibre and contain adequate amounts of protein from good quality sources. It would also include fats mostly from unsaturated sources and incorporates plenty of (non-starchy) vegetables and some fruits (such as berries).
Purition is just that –not a supplement or a processed meal replacement but simply real food made only using whole food ingredients, without anything artificial at all. So, it will fit in well with your healthy, balanced diet:
Purition is whole-food blend and is a recipe of approximately 70% of Nuts and Seeds (Almonds, Golden Linseed, Sunflower Kernels, Coconut, Chia Seeds, Sesame Seeds & Pumpkin Seeds), some protein, a very small amount of natural sweetener and only natural food ingredients to flavour gently.
Due to these quality ingredients, Purition is naturally high in fibre, a great source of healthy polyunsaturated fats and protein as well as an array of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals - all of which will be beneficial for your and your growing baby’s health alongside a healthy, balanced diet.
The easy, straightforward nature of Purition (a quick whizz in a blender, or stirred into yoghurt), also means that it is ideally suited if you simply can’t face the prospect of spending too much precious time in the kitchen; Purition can be effortlessly assembled in just 30 seconds!

The same goes for our Super Lattes, these are also only made using real, whole food ingredients and can be enjoyed safely at all life stages, including pregnancy and breastfeeding.
In case you are concerned about their caffeine content, please do not be:
The official NHS/BDA/AfN guidance states that you can safely enjoy caffeine during pregnancy and breastfeeding, please just make sure that you restrict you daily intake to no more than 200mg per day - so this means that all of our Super Lattes are perfectly safe to consume.
Here is the information on the caffeine content of the Super Lattes:
- The Beetroot, Blue Spirulina and Turmeric Lattes are naturally caffeine free.
- Chocolate Super Latte : 2.3mg caffeine per serving
- Matcha Tea Super Latte : 29mg caffeine per serving
(Just as a reference, a single shot of espresso typically contains approximately 75mg of caffeine and a mug of instant coffee generally has approximately 100mg of caffeine.)

Although Purition is suitable for most people, if you have any underlying medical conditions or have been advised to follow a specific diet, it is vital that you please consult your GP/dietitian before making any changes to your diet.
