Hi, I'm Carolina!

Founder of Malua. I’m a mom and health coach who knows there are no shortcuts in life—but there are ways to make the journey more enjoyable.

Carolina Poli

I was born and raised in Brazil, where different superfoods are a regular part of our everyday diet.

I discovered green banana, a popular superfood in Brazil, in my late teens and began incorporating it into my daily routine. In just a few weeks my skin began to clear up, my digestion was better than ever, and my energy levels improved considerably. I couldn't believe this simple ingredient was providing me with so many benefits and transforming my health.

When I moved to the United States a few years later, I wanted to keep green banana in my diet and began experimenting with different recipes. It turned out that my homemade snack bites were the most convenient way to consume my favorite ingredient while keeping up with a busy lifestyle. I shared my recipes with friends who loved the taste, but more importantly, loved the way that green banana made them feel- so I thought it was time for more people to start experiencing the benefits of my 'magic' bites!

I’m happy that the health and wellness community is finally recognizing the importance of prebiotics for our microbiome and overall health. Malua brings together my expertise as a health coach, my lived experience as a working mom, and my love for the superfoods of my country. I hope you enjoy it!

what are prebiotics and its benefits?

Answer: Prebiotics are special plant fibers that feed the good bacteria in our gut. Prebiotics are carbs (AKA Resistant Starch) that our bodies can’t digest, so they go straight to our large intestine, where they act like fertilizers to help the good bacteria grow. A healthy microbiome supports the immune system, aids digestion, and strengthens hair, skin and nails.

what prebiotics are used in malua bites?

Answer: Malua Bites contain green banana flour prebiotic, the world’s richest source of resistant starch.

what is green banana flour?

Answer: Green banana flour is a gluten free, low sugar flour made from unripe bananas (not to be confused with Plantains!). The green bananas are peeled, sliced, dehydrated, and then milled to form a flour. Green banana flour is a source of resistant starch also known as functional fiber.

what are the benefits of green banana flour?

Answer: The resistant starch in the green banana flour “resists” digestion in the small intestine (it does not break down into sugars) and then reaches the large intestine where it is fermented. The byproduct of this fermentation is believed to lower blood sugar levels, help you feel more satiated, lower pH levels and help reduce cell damage. Green banana flour also has prebiotic effects. It selectively feeds the good bacteria in the gut, powering a healthy microbiome and helping support the immune system, aiding digestion, and strengthening hair, skin and nails.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
