NutritionAt FliPCrêpes, we believe that food should taste great but it is also the fuel to your body & mind. From the beginning, it has been our mission to serve all lifestyle dieters, so we hand-select ingredients that do not contain additives and are as natural as possible. We found that it is almost impossible to get the quality we are looking for many ingredients, so we ended up preparing in-house to serve the food we believed in. In 2015, we made 100% of our menu offering naturally gluten free* to remove, Gluten, Wheat protiens and ATIs (amylase-trypsin inhibitors). On our menus you can see these symbols below. Here are more details on there meaning. * Some locatiosn may offer Wüfels (imported Liege Waffles) which are not G.F.
All menu items on our menuboards are Gluten Free (at the exception of the the Wüfels). Gluten Free has become one of our specialty, and many of our customers have Gluten intolerance to high intolerance to Gluten and were diagnosed with Celiacs. Gluten is a general name for the proteins found in wheat, and can be found in many unexpected food items, which is one of the reason we make many of our own ingredients.
Low Saturated Fat
We mark menu items with less than 1.5% (approx. until nutritional work is finished) saturated fat with a heart. These items are considered low in saturated fat. Saturated fat are not considered as a good fat as the ones found in some vegetables like avocado, or nuts & seeds or certain oils like olive oil, or the fat found in fish. Note: there has been recent research to suggest that not all sat fat deserves the demonization it has received. We will be following developments on this closely.
Low Glycemic Load
The 'check' symbol indicate items that have a lower Glycemic Index. The glycemic load (GL) of food is a number that estimates how much the food will raise a person's blood glucose level after eating it. One unit of glycemic load approximates the effect of consuming one gram of glucose. Glycemic load accounts for how much carbohydrate is in the food and how much each gram of carbohydrate in the food raises blood glucose levels. Glycemic load is based on the glycemic index (GI), and is calculated by multiplying the grams of available carbohydrate in the food times the food's GI and then dividing by 100. We give any dish wish a GL of 15 or under a Check Symbol. (approximate until actual nutritional work is finished)
We mark items with the 'DF'that do not contain any milk/lactose products in it. While milk is needed in infancy, as adults many of us do not have the enzymes required to digest milk and other dairy products. Choose the items marked with a 'DF' if you are Lactose intolerant.
Menu items marked with a 'V' do not contain any meat or fish, our Vegetarian items are actually Lacto-ovo vegetarians, which means that they can contain eggs or lactose.
These items do not contain any animal products at all, no dairy or no egg either. We are always looking to introduce new vegan options, if you have any suggestions, please let us know.
Items marked by a 'Ha' contain chicken that comes from a certified supplier that uses halal practices. Our chicken is also Zhabīḥah and is the prescribed method of slaughter for all Halal meat sources.
The Calorie count will be avaiable soon with the breakdown of the rest of nutritional data. Each items on our menu or take out menu will have a calorie count. A calorie is a unit of energy. In nutrition and everyday language, calories refer to energy consumption through eating and drinking, and energy usage through physical activity. For example, an apple may have 80 calories, while a 1 mile walk might use up about 100 calories.
