Nutritional Summary:

At Radiquel, we believe strict fixation on numbers is a reductionist view of nutrition and can potentially harm our relationship with food. Food is also so much more than just units of calories and macronutrients; it’s a chance to nourish our minds, bodies, and souls with whole and soul foods. However, we acknowledge nutritional panels’ educational value for some individuals and have provided them solely for educational purposes. Please utilise this information with the utmost care.

This nutritional information is given solely for recreational intent and is not recommended to displace any medical advice, nor is it necessarily precise. We approximate the nutritional information per the listed ingredients. As food products can always vary in size, brand and shape, and nutritional quantities can also change based on the plants' growth circumstances, the quality of the soil, the fruits' maturity, and other factors, the nutrition information that is provided is an approximation. Since these values are highly individualised and rely on a variety of variables, such as age, gender, and the amount of daily physical activity, we do not offer the percentage of the recommended daily value. Please calculate the nutritional information you need using the exact ingredients you used or seek a dietitian or clinical nutritionist to assist you, if you need.
