We fondly refer to the three flavors of GET FIT Roti as "The Three Sisters". Beyond offering flavor and variety (which are important!), the three sisters are meticulously designed to work in harmony to support your health.
All three flavors are made of the same base flour - almonds, flax, amaranth (more on this wonder seed in upcoming blog posts), non-GMO wheat. Together they provide an amazing mix of nutrients, that you could never get out of the best whole wheat roti/ wrap/ tortilla.

Lower carb content, more protein, more good fats, more natural fiber, Magnesium, Vitamin E, and absolutely no additives or preservatives - and a great tasting staple above all!
: This flavor has added spinach and toasted fresh ground cumin, designed to provide essential calcium and pre-biotic fiber that promotes gut health.
Cumin increases the bio-absorption of calcium from Spinach and other foods consumed. Cumin has a powerful “osteo-protective effect” and is comparable to that of the hormone estradiol (1), which is known to prevent osteoporosis. Cumin is also beneficial for insulin metabolism and weight loss (2).
This flavor contains pure turmeric and fresh ground black pepper which provide enormous health benefits.
Turmeric may be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence. Curcumin, the main active ingredient in turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. Many high quality studies (3) show that it has major benefits for your body and brain. Most of the studies however, use turmeric extracts that contain mostly curcumin itself, with dosages usually exceeding 1 gram per day. It would be very difficult to reach these levels just using the turmeric spice in your foods - curcumin forms only 3% of the weight of turmeric.
You could of course, take an extract that contains significant amounts of curcumin but because curcumin is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream, taking a supplement alone does not get you the right amount. It helps to consume black pepper with it, which contains piperine... a natural substance that enhances the absorption of curcumin by 2000% (4).
Curcumin is also fat soluble, so it may be a good idea to take it with fat - the kind of heart healthy fat found in GET FIT Roti.
Together, turmeric and black pepper are cardioprotective (5), a rich source of antioxidants that counteract the low grade inflammation caused by obesity, food additives, preservatives, industrial oils such as palm, soya, sunflower & refined carbs (6), improves brain function (7), prevent or treat diseases like cancer, Alzheimer's and arthritis.
This is our most versatile flavor. Made with just the base flour blend, it has a natural earthy simple taste that allows you to enjoy it as part of your traditional meal as a roti, tortilla, taco, wrap... Our team loves making simple delicious desserts with it - think cinnamon, nutmeg, powdered or coconut sugar, strawberries, cream...mmm. Look for more ideas in our Recipes.
We bring all three flavors together in the Assorted GET FIT Roti pack. We recommend that you consume all three flavors and enjoy the health benefits.
