We were lucky enough to ask the Radix team some questions ahead of their launch on Base Camp Food, which you can read below. So, say hello to Radix Nutrition and the optimisation of metabolic performance!
Why did you want to start Radix Nutrition?
Radix Nutrition was founded in 2013 with the idea to connect the highest quality ingredients with the best nutritional design, delivered in the simplest format possible. We believe that access to great nutrition should be possible for everyone.
Is there a favourite adventure you’ve had in New Zealand that you'd recommend to travellers visiting, maybe one that inspired a Radix Nutrition meal?
The great walks of New Zealand offer some of the best scenery that the country has to offer! Personal favourites of mine include the Tongariro Northern Circuit and the Routeburn track.
What’s the biggest misconception about nutrition when adventuring?
People often underestimate the importance of good nutrition when they’re adventuring. Expeditions can be very strenuous tasks, as exercising for long periods over multiple days is no easy feat. To have the best possible experience, your body requires the best possible fuel to perform and recover at its absolute best.
What’s your favourite nutrition adventure tip?
Using fats is a great way to easily increase your daily energy intake. Fats have 9 calories per gram, whilst carbs and protein only have 4. This gives high-fat foods the best calorie-to-weight ratio. Adding foods such as oils and nut butters to your meals can be a great way to make sure you’re getting the calories you need to fuel your adventure.
What are the benefits of a plant-based adventure diet?
When it comes to freeze-dried meals, a plant-based approach has enabled us to pack more nutrients into our meals than ever before. Plant-based foods also rehydrate better, improving the taste, texture, and overall experience of the meal. With the right approach, plant-based nutrition is an effective and healthy addition to any diet.
What makes your meals different from other brands?
Our meals are designed with Radix Nutrition Architecture (RNA for short). This technology guides our comprehensive nutritional design, increasing the density of 130+ nutrients and ingredients, including macronutrients, micronutrients, amino acids, prebiotics, and more. RNA allows us to design meals that give your body everything it needs to perform at its absolute best.
Thank you to the team at Radix Nutrition for taking the time to sit down and tell us more about their origins and what makes the Radix Nutrition DNA.
