Bananas

Bananas are a good source of potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B6 and fiber. They may boost mood and reduce stress, and they're a good source of carbohydrates.

multicolumns-item-image-2

Mangos

Mangoes contain enzymes that can aid in digestion, and are a good source of vitamins A and C, potassium, and fiber. They can help protect against cellular damage.

multicolumns-item-image-3

Blueberries

Blueberries are often referred to as a "superfood because of their high nutrient content. They are rich in antioxidants, can help reduce inflammation, and may even improve cognitive function.

Strawberries

Strawberries are high in antioxidants - such as vitamin C, flavonoids, and phenolic acids - which protect the body from oxidative stress and inflammation, and can boost immune function.

multicolumns-item-image-5

Dates

Dates are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Dates have a lower glycemic index than refined sugar, meaning a slower and steadier rise in blood sugar. As a sweetener, they are a vegan-friendly alternative to honey.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an energy purée?

Great question! This is probably one we get asked the most. Succinctly, energy purées are products that provide a concentrated source of energy. They are typically made from a blend of fruits and vegetables, and are designed to be easily consumed and digested.

What is the difference between an energy purée and an energy gel?

The main differences between energy purées and energy gels lies in their consistency, composition and consumption:

Consistency: As their name implies, energy gels have a gel-like consistency. Energy purées on the other hand, have a thicker and (minimally) textured consistency, since they are made from puréed fruits, vegetables and water.

Composition: Energy gels are formulated to provide a concentrated source of high-glycemic carbohydrates, electrolytes, and sometimes caffeine. They are designed to be quickly absorbed and provide an immediate energy boost during intense exercise. Energy purees, on the other hand, are typically made from a blend of fruits, vegetables, and other ingredients. They provide a combination of carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They are also easy to consume, but take longer to digest, because they are made of real-food, complex carbs. Rather than a spike and a crash, they provide a more stable stream of energy.

Consumption: Energy gels are primarily used by endurance athletes during prolonged physical activity. Energy purées are more versatile and can be used as a snack in addition to providing energy during physical activity. They are often consumed by individuals looking for a convenient and nutritious option to fuel their bodies or as a quick energy boost between meals.

What are the benefits of energy purées?

Energy purées offer several benefits, including:

  1. Quick and convenient source of energy: Energy purees are easy to consume, requiring minimal digestion time, making them a convenient option for on-the-go energy needs.
  2. Nutritional value: Energy purees are often packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants from the fruits and vegetables used in their preparation. They can provide a range of nutrients to support overall health and well-being.
  3. Enhanced performance: Energy purees can help athletes and active individuals maintain energy levels during prolonged physical activity, leading to improved endurance and performance.
  4. Digestive ease: The pureed form of these products makes them easier to digest, which can be beneficial for those with sensitive stomachs or digestive issues.

How and when should I use energy purées?

Our purées are ready to eat. Simply open (rip the top or unscrew the cap) and squeeze. You don't need to mix them with anything, although feel free to do so: oatmeal, granola or ice cream work! Because they are made with water, you don't need to drink additional water in order to digest them (although water is important for hydration regardless).

Energy purées are typically consumed before or during physical activity to provide a quick and sustained source of energy. They can also be eaten afterwards, to help replenish your energy stores. They can also be consumed as a snack between meals or whenever an energy boost is needed. (Hint: they fit perfectly in a purse, and cause much less damage than a banana.)

Are your energy purées allergy-friendly?

Our purées avoid the top nine FDA allergens, but we still process in a facility that processes nuts and gluten. We follow best practices to avoid contamination, and are building out our own manufacturing to address this in the future.

Are your energy purées certified organic, non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, or kosher?

Ok, that's five questions.

Organic: We use certified organic ingredients and will be pursuing certification, but are not yet certified.

Non-GMO: Certified organic ingredients are also non-GMO. We will be pursuing this certification, but are not yet certified.

Vegan: We use only vegan ingredients and will be pursuing certification, but are not yet certified.

Gluten-free: We use only gluten-free ingredients, but we manufacture in a facility that is not gluten-free. We eventually plan to manufacture in a gluten-free facility and will pursue that certification.

Kosher: Our products are Kosher, but are not certified as such.

Are energy purées suitable for everyone?

As best as we could make them. We want our products to be safe for women to consume at any part of their lifecycle, including while pregnant, breast-feeding or during menopause. Our purées avoid the top nine FDA allergens and are made with low-and moderate-glycemic organic and vegan fruits. They don't contain any artificial ingredients, flavors or colors. However, it's always important to consider individual dietary needs and any specific health conditions or allergies, and so we recommend always reading the ingredient label.

Why don't you add salt or other electrolytes to your purées?

While we will likely include some salt in future savory flavors, our two current flavors don't include it because - honestly - we think salty fruit is gross. On the other hand, we use dates (paste or syrup) in both recipes, and dates are a great source of potassium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus (especially when compared with alternate sweeteners). We also found that many athletes already supplement with electrolyte tablets, rendering additional sodium unnecessary.

Pickleball Pick-me-up!

I'm not sure I believe in products like this - I mean I believe in them, but I never really thought they were for me. I'm not an extreme athlete or anything, and usually I just go without and quit when I hit the wall. But my daughter insisted I try it. I was playing pickleball on a hot day recently and at the break before my last match, I tried some of the Strawberry Jams. I figured I'd see if it worked or if I'd notice a difference. Then I immediately forgot about it (I'm 72, so...). But about midway through the game, I suddenly realized, hey, I have the energy to finish this and I'm not feeling exhausted! So now I guess I have to actually believe in this stuff. I will keep a packet in my pickleball bag at all times.

Not limited to runners.....

I'm not a runner, but I went to the website of Levelle to buy their product for a female friend who is a runner and ended up with a discovery: Levelle's products aren't limited to the use of female runners, but can be used by anybody in the medical and mental health professions, who works back to back and doesn't have time to consume the nutrients they need. Very often in the course of my work as a psychotherapist, I need to attend to a crisis with a patient, while feeling dizzy and fatigued, only to become cognizant that I actually neglected to take a break and eat . Levelle's products provide me with an unexpected solution tailored to such moments. Their products are vegan, consist of real food, have no added sugar, supply between 80-90 calories and have all the good vitamins I need. Right now, I keep a big supply of their energy puree products, 'Yes We Cran, and 'Strawberry Jams' in my desk drawer. Consuming them doesn't take time away from the flow of the day and they never fail to bring back a smile to my face as my mind clears up and I'm back to full cognitive functioning in the middle of a busy and challenging day. Needless to say, I'm spreading the news about Levelle's products among my colleagues in the helping professions and maybe they will end up becoming runners as well.
