Where We are Located
We are located in both the USA and Canada.
About our Products
Our products are natural products. They are free from extenders, additions, addivites, preservatives, fake colors. We do NOT use anti-caking agents you may find in other products. Our products MAY slightly clump (especially when using brown sugar)and this is NORMAL! A natural product with sugar can clump slightly. The clumping will dissolve as you add your wet ingredients. Our products are also currently manufactured in small runs. They are within most cases manufactured within 1 to 2 weeks of you receiving them, and often even less time, and thus you can be confident your product is fresh!
Our products are manufactured according to GMP. Our products are natural products. Weights may vary from package to package in accordance to the utliization of our natural products. Weigh limit tolerances have been tested to insure quality standards are met within 20% stated weight on package.
Question : I received a product that I have been ordering for a while, but it looks a different color. Did something change?
Answer : If in doubt, please email our support team and they can help answer your product questions whether we have changed a specific product you have been ordering! email@example.com is the best way to get in touch
However! Many cases, the color changes are just because we use natural products instead of artificial colors and product 'color' can bleed in time. Here are a couple examples!
In our broth mixes available in the winter we use turmeric in all our mixes. The turmeric darkens over time and bleeds into the rest of the blend.
Because it's a natural product, the dye in a natural hue like turmeric will change over time.
Another great example is our enchilada dip. If you receive one that has been made within days it will look grey. Over time it changes from grey to lighter orange to super bright orange.
When using artificial colors everything will look the same all the time without variability but natural products will change in color and appearance over time
Many of our products can arrive to you fresh, some will sit longer on our shelves and will change color as the natural colors found in turmeric or paprika or even spirulina bleed into the other ingredients and cause color hue changes

How we display our allergies on our product packaging - in accordance with the FDA, cited below
The law allows manufacturers a choice in how they identify the specific “food source names,” such as “milk,” “cod,” “shrimp,” or “walnuts,” of the major food allergens on the label. They must be declared either in:
We as a company list all and every ingredient as part of our consumer nutritional labeling and packaging. We often (but not always) list allergen's present on the "CONTAINS" section of our product packaging. Although we make every effort to duplicate our allergen information on packaging, it may only be present and found in the ingredients listing. If you suffer from allergies please make sure you read our ingredients listed on the packaging thoroughly before using.

About our Best By Labels and Dates Practices
We print our packaging boxes in very large print runs to redue paper cost and save you money on the product pricing! They include best by dates at the time of initial printing that will take us through a few months of production capacity. After that, we add a new date label to extend the date to the true best by date of the ingredients.
We constantly manufacture our products. We are not warehousing large quantities of products that sit for years and we do not spray our products with oils to artifically extend their shelf-life (even if the oil is natural).
While we do not make our products fresh to order (that would be highly impractical and would take a long time for you to receive your order), our products are currently processed in smaller batches (some even hand crafted!) as opposed to super large batches you may often find with large manufacturers and thus our products do not sit on shelves for years before they make it to your home.
Our product best by dates can vary from product to product and time of purchase and can vary when you purchase the same product based upon our small batch cycles.
The stick on labeled date reflects the current best by date of the product produced inside the box.
Please note: this is not a relabeling date of old products. We never relabel any product with a new date. We would never do that. We are simply updating predated boxes which are obsolete.
Unsure if it's our label? Contact us! email@example.com with a photo and we can insure and verify label authenticity!
According to Canadian Food Labeling Voluntary DeclarationFoods with a shelf life greater than 90 days (e.g., cereals, semi-dry cured or dry cured sausage, etc.) are not required to be labelled with a "best before" date and storage information or a packaging date and durable life information.
Similarly in USA FDA requirements
With the exception of infant formula, the laws that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) administers do not preclude the sale of food that is past the expiration date indicated on the label. FDA does not require food firms to place "expired by", "use by" or "best before" dates on food products. This information is entirely at the discretion of the manufacturer.
