Spectrum Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

Spectrum Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Spectrum Naturals Organic Coconut Oil is grown without the use of pesticides and is closer to nature than other coconut oils found on the market, which tend to be over-processed or hydrogenated. Organic Coconut Oil has subtle coconut flavor and is unrefined. Packaged in a wide mouth glass jar, it is typically found in the culinary oils section of the store. Coconut oil is extracted from the meat of the tropical coconut. It is 100% vegetable oil and vegan. Coconut oil's fatty acid profile consists of about 92% saturated fat, making it very stable and safe to store at room temperature. Because of its natural stability, Spectrum's Organic Coconut Oil is a good alternative to butter and shortening for medium heat baking and sauteing. In addition to its long and successful history as a tropical culinary oil, coconut oil has been used for centuries as a body care product that nourishes, moisturizes and protects skin and hair. As an added bonus the medium chain fatty acids in Coconut Oil help the body to burn the bad fat! This company is dedicated to providing the world with heart healthy oils that are easily accessible and affordable

Sunfood's Organic Yacon Syrup

Sunfood's Organic Yacon Syrup

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Gluten Free

100% Raw organic yacon syrup is a new vegan sweetener similar to molasses. It is low glycemic and safe for diabetics. Pressed from the yacon root, it has been enjoyed for centuries in the Andean highlands of Peru. As a prebiotic, yacon is good for digestion, safeguards against colon cancer, and helps with the absorption of calcium and vitamins. Though packed with sweetness, the sugar in yacon is mainly fructooligosaccharide, which cannot be absorbed by the body. This means yacon is both naturally low-calorie and low in mono and disaccharides (less than 1/2 g per serving), sugars that rapidly elevate blood sugar levels. Use it as you would honey or maple syrup on foods and in recipes or sweeten beverages with a spoonful. Sunfood is a world renowned source of the highest quality raw foods and superfoods the planet has to offer. Rated a 4 because we are not crazy about the taste. It’s worth a try.

Manitoba Harvest Unsweetened Original Hemp Bliss

Manitoba Harvest Unsweetened Original Hemp Bliss

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Hemp Bliss is a leader in hemp foods & oils, and online source for natural, sustainable and certified organic hemp food products. Hemp provides omega 3 fatty acids, which are necessary for myriad of functions in the body. Most Americans are deficient in omega 3s and this is a great way to boost your daily supply. HEMP BLISS is certified organic. Products are made daily in their kosher and organic certified production facility. Be sure to get the red label 'unsweetened original' as they use organic evaporated cane sugar to sweeten the original hemp bliss. We love the fact that the unsweetened option contains no added sugar or sweetener but still contains the great nutty flavor.
