Our Products

We pride ourselves on creating fabulous flavors that are just as good (better, actually) as their conventional counterparts, but without all the common allergens and those junky, synthetic, or animal-based ingredients. Our products were crafted by our founder, Jess, a graduate of the Natural Gourmet Institute, winning chef on the Food Network, and with over 20 years experience in food service.

Think of them as chickpea veggie bites/nuggets! Perfect as a standalone snack paired with our dips. Better yet, great as your protein addition for a wrap, salad, sandwich, or for your meal with your favorite side dishes!

 

Our dips can also be used as a spread, sauce, or condiment. All of our flavors are great as a veggie and chip dip, paired with your favorite proteins, mixed into a salad, spread on toast, or in your burgers and sandwiches. The sky is the limit!

 

It's chickpea water! When boiled, the chickpeas release strands of proteins and starches that have properties similar to egg-whites. We use it in lieu of eggs and dairy in our dips to create a rich base, so you can enjoy that creamy delicious texture.

 

Yes! We have our USDA Organic Certification, certified by QAI.

 

Yes! We are certified Gluten-Free by NSF

 

We are free of the top-8 allergens. There are many other various allergies out there, so we suggest you check the ingredient listings on our product pages (or in the section below).

Not at this time, but we are working on it!

 

We source our chickpeas from Eden Organics, and glyphosate is non-detectable in their products (detection limit at 0.10ppm). You can learn more about Eden’s process for this here

 

Sunflower oil has a neutral flavor profile that allows our spices, herbs, and veggies to shine through. We use it, along with aquafaba, to create an emulsion that acts as the base of our dips. It is also used in our falafel to help them maintain moisture and hold together.

We pride ourselves on using the best ingredients, and this is especially the case with our sunflower oil. It's organic, cold-pressed, and high-oleic.

This means it is expeller pressed, not solvent pressed. Expeller pressed uses a physical crushing method at a very slow speed (which is also called cold pressed). This maintains the integrity of the oil. Conventional sunflower oil is typically solvent pressed which does use a low level of hexane. Our sunflower oil is 100% sunflower oil with absolutely no additives.

As far as the benefits, high oleic sunflower oil is high in monounsaturated fat. It has a significant amount of monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acids, which is what “high-oleic” signifies. Monounsaturated fat (oleic acid) is one of the two “healthy” fats, along with polyunsaturated fat (linoleic acid). Monounsaturated fat, in particular, can help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol.

High-oleic sunflower oil is typically comprised of 75 – 82 percent monounsaturated fat and around nine percent linoleic acid, a polyunsaturated fat. High-oleic organic sunflower oil is significantly less inflammatory than conventional sunflower oil. The FDA has approved the claim that high oleic oils reduce the risk of coronary heart disease when replacing saturated fats.

We source from SPACK, which controls the production process from the harvesting of the seeds to the producing of the oils in their own expeller and packing facilities. They are a family owned business and have been producing oils since 1977. Learn more at: https://spack-international.com/
