All of our ingredients are non-GMO. We use organic ingredients as much as possible. We are lucky to live in California, where so many of the wonderful ingredients we use are right in our backyard, including the following:
- Non-Pareil Almonds -- the sweetest kind
- CA Apricots -- more tart than your average Turkish apricot
- Dates -- from Desert Valley Date in the Coachella Valley
- Hazelnuts -- grown near the forests in northern California
- Pistachios -- grown in the San Joaquin Valley
- Walnuts -- grown in the San Joaquin and Sacramento Valley
Organic Oats -- We source organically-grown rolled oats from the US and Canada. Oats are naturally gluten-free, but may be processed in the same facility as wheat, so cross-contamination is possible.
Honey -- The wildflower honey we use is raw and unfiltered. It comes from the Chaparral Mountain Honey company in the mountains of nearby Altadena.
Organic Maple Syrup -- We have partnered with Brookfield Maple Products, a family farm in Pennsylvania that harvests and processes their own maple syrup. It is organic and single-origin. We prefer the Grade A Dark & Robust variety for its complex flavor.
Pumpkin Seeds -- We are in the process of switching to organic hull-less pumpkin seeds grown in Oregon's Willamette Valley.
Pecans -- grown in the southern US
Sunflower Seeds -- grown in the US
Cashews -- grown in Vietnam
Sesame seeds -- grown in India
Chocolate -- We use Guittard bittersweet chocolate in our trail mix and granola bars. They were one of the first companies to switch from soy to sunflower lecithin to create a fully non-GMO product.
Crystallized Ginger -- The ginger chips in our Mt. Rosemary trail mix come from a small farm in Fiji via The Ginger People. They work with local farmers and invested in a local processing facility to ensure opportunities for the people of Viti Levu.
Coconut -- We source organic coconut chips from the Philippines or Sri Lanka. Our shredded coconut comes from the Philippines.
Coconut Sugar -- Our coconut palm sugar is 100% organic, vegan, gluten-free, and sustainably-grown by small farmers cooperatives in Indonesia.
Blueberries -- The dried blueberries in our Cardamom Hill are USA-grown and sweetened with apple juice instead of sugar.
Mangos -- We use unsweetened diced mangos from Mexico.
