Ingredients

We firmly believe that food in its natural state is healthier and tastier so we make sure our ingredients are as unprocessed as possible while maintaining great taste. For example, you will notice our fruits are dark in color—that is because we use pure, sun-dried fruits while most dried fruits artificially maintain bright colors through the use of sulfites and infused sugars.

  • Almonds

    Lets talk superfood. Almonds are a rich source of fiber, protein, heart-healthy fat, antioxidants and vitamins and minerals, making them a one-stop food. They also contain more calcium than any other nut.
  • Apples

  • Banana Chips

    Bananas are an awesome source of fiber, iron, and of course - potassium! Consuming banana chips helps to prevent the nausea, fatigue and constipation that can develop due to potassium deficiency.
  • Bing Cherries

    A 2006 study from The Journal of Nutrition suggests that consuming Bing cherries may reduce certain inflammatory markers in the body. Anthocyanins (which give cherries their red color) are an antioxidant that has been shown to potentially reduce inflammation and possibly lowering risk of certain diseases.
  • Brazil nuts

    Brazil nut trees only grow in pristine rainforest conditions, so they provide a means for generating income from a tropical forest without destroying it. Brazil nuts offer the most concentrated form of the powerful antioxidant, selenium, and are a “complete” protein source, meaning they contain all the necessary amino acids to foster optimal growth in humans in the same way as proteins from animal products do.
  • Coconut

    Coconut is well known for its nutritious and healing properties. It is the only natural source of beneficial Lauric acid (other than human breast milk).
  • Currants

    Currants are a variety of small, sweet, seedless black grape. They are nutrient rich and are an essential source of vitamins A and C. They also contain many phytonutrients, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and minerals.
  • Dates

    Dates are a good source of protein and dietary fiber and are rich in vitamin B1, B2, B3 and B5 along with vitamin A1 and C. They are a good source of iron and are one of the best natural sources of potassium.
  • Ginger

    Where do we start? Ginger has a long tradition of being very effective in alleviating symptoms of gastrointestinal distress. It is also an anti-inflammatory and high in antioxidants.
  • Golden Flax Seeds

    Some call flax seeds the most powerful plant food on the planet! Flax contains Omega-3 essential fatty acids, or the "good" fats.
  • Honey (Organic)

    Our organic honey is a natural source of energy for the body, high in natural antioxidants. Honey is high in glucose and fructose. These sugars are quickly absorbed, providing the body with boost of energy. Honey is rich in vitamins, amino acids, calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc, all of which are essential to good health.
  • Macadamia Nuts

    Macadamia nuts are the richest source of monounsaturates – 10% higher than extra virgin olive oil. Macadamia nuts are also an excellent source of protein, calcium, potassium, dietary fiber and anti-oxidants.
  • Pears

    Pears are a good source of fiber, potassium and Vitamin C. Our dried pears are prepared from quality, mature pears which have been washed, cut, pitted and naturally sun dried.
  • Pecans

    Pecans contain the highest amount of antioxidants of any tree nut. Pecans are also chock-full of minerals. Manganese, of which pecans offer a whopping 245% of the daily value per serving, is very good for your heart.
  • Pepitas (Pumpkin Seeds)

    Pepitas offer an abundance of nutrients including amino acids, unsaturated fatty acids and a wealth of minerals such as calcium, potassium, niacin, and phosphorous. They are high in most of the B vitamins, vitamins C, D, E, and K, and are a rich source of iron, with ¼ cup containing 30% of the daily recommended value.
  • Pure Vanilla Powder

    We use organic pure vanilla powder in our recipes, which unlike the much more common vanilla extract flavoring, is alcohol and gluten free.
  • Raisins

    Raisins have been the object of phytonutrient research primarily for their unique phenol content, but these delicious dried grapes are also one of the top sources of the trace mineral, boron, in the U.S. diet.
  • Sunflower Seeds

    Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of vitamins E and B1, manganese, magnesium, selenium, vitamin B5 and healthy fibers. They are a good source of phytochemicals (non-nutrient plant chemicals) that can be protective against disease. Of the nuts and seeds typically consumed as snack foods, sunflower seeds and pistachios were richest in phytosterols.
  • Whole Grain Barley

    One of the oldest cultivated plants in the world, Barley has a sweet nut like flavor. It is an excellent source of fiber – three times more than oats – and is a good source of phosphorus, copper and manganese.
  • Whole Grain Oats (Organic)

    Whole grain oats are an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, shown to lower cholesterol and the risk of cardiovascular disease.
  • Whole Grain Rye

    Whole grain rye, with its rich, hearty taste, contains noncellulose polysaccharides which have exceptionally high water-binding capacity and quickly give a feeling of fullness and satiety.
