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!
About our Gluten Free Products
We do not have gluten free certification. Many of our gluten free products are naturally gluten free and our processed in our facilities that also have wheat. We do not run our gluten free products on our same line of products with wheat but they are present in our facilities that carry wheat
Our facliities do have peanut, coconut, almond, milk, wheat, sesame, soy, mustard present. While we work hard to minimize any cross-contamination, it is always a possibility.
About our Wellness Products
We offer a line of wellness and health products that may fit into your dietary needs. Our products are functional food products (aka real food, real ingredients derived from real sources to help you achieve your own healthy you goals). To that end, we use only real food, real ingredients without added supplementation.
If in doubt, please check with your physician or primary care provider to make sure you can use a product with specific ingredients noted in our ingredient and nutritional declaration tabs. Speak directly with your primary care physician before consuming any product that has any ingredient you may not know if it will affect your health and health status or if it will interfere with a medication. If you have a concern about any natural ingredient or wellness product including but not limited to maca root powder, mushroom powder, protein powder, collagen, psyllium husk, flax, beetroot, branch chain amino acids, spinach, spirulina, sea vegetables, supergreens and among others as listed in our nutritional and ingredient declaration forms on our products that may use these superfoods, please check with your primary care physician.
We are not healthcare providers and we do not treat or cure health related concerns. For all health related concerns please check with your primary care physician / provider / doctor for any ingredient questions as it relates to your personal health situation.
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.
