Each superstar ingredient is handled with the utmost care and sophistication, from growing to harvest to processing, ensuring maximum nutrient density, flavor, and freshness. All ingredients are vacuum packed for shipment and storage at our air-conditioned facility in Southern California, and they are blended in small batches to ensure maximum freshness on store shelves.
Our organic certified, GMO-free hemp seeds are harvested, processed, packaged and stored with utmost attention to ensure optimal nutrient content and freshness. Each batch of hemp seeds is made to order to ensure freshness. The seeds' hard outer shell is machine-cracked at RAW temperatures to protect delicate omega oils from oxidation, and regularly tested for purity and quality. The freshly-shelled seeds are then cold-pressed to separate the hemp oil from the hemp protein (which still retains some omega-3 oils). Our supplier works closely with a group of about 20 hemp farmers, who are also shareholders in the company — a value-added incentive that makes these seeds more than just a commodity crop.
BRAZIL NUT PROTEIN
Acai & Brazil Nuts
The primary impact of these Amazon crops is in preservation of precious rainforest. Their premium market value creates an alternative to destructive industries like logging, mining, drilling, and cattle ranching, while creating a positive livelihood that supports and preserves indigenous communities and culture. Our supply chain for these products is among the most ethical, transparent, and positive in the world, developed in collaboration with groups like Amazon Watch to ensure protection of precious rainforest, while Fair Trade international ensures positive impact on supplier communities.
Coconut sugar is one of the most sustainable sweeteners in the world. Tropical palms are an ecologically beneficial tree-crop that grow in diverse, wild-life supportive agro-ecosystems, restore damaged soils and require very little water, all while integrating harmoniously with surrounding ecosystems to provide uninterrupted habitat for wildlife. They also produce an average of 50-75% more sugar per acre than sugar cane. Our coconut sugar is 100% pure, single-ingredient product with no additives, fillers, or added sweeteners. Coconut palm farmer harvest pure nectar from the flowers in the canopies of their trees and carefully boil it to prevent fermentation and to thicken the nectar into a caramel-like consistency which is dried and milled at a central facility in Bali.
THE GOODNESS OF FRUIT
The berries are harvested, then quickly washed and pureed at a western-standard HACCP/GMP facility. The puree is sterilized, filtered, and then spray dried with about 6% rice dextrin. It takes 10 pounds of fresh Goji Berries to make just 1 pound of our Goji powder (which is guaranteed to have at least 40% polysaccharides).
Within 24 hours of harvest, the berries are washed, de-seeded, and puréed. The thick, antioxidant-rich purée is quickly flash-pasteurized (as required by law), then freeze dried in stainless steel containers. Freeze drying preserves foods much closer to their original state than high-heat processes, which oxidize fats and denature proteins and carbohydrates.
Our mesquite pods are hand-picked directly from the tree (rather than the ground) and are rinsed and shade-dried before being milled and sifted to create a smooth texture.
The beans are cured on-site before importation to the states for further processing. Most beans destined for the U.S. market are drier, less rich in vanilla oil. We select a variety usually reserved for European markets, with higher levels of moisture and natural vanilla oils. Stateside, the beans are ground to powder in an Organic facility, but unlike most suppliers of vanilla powder, ours undergoes an added 12 day curing process which allows the bean’s natural flavor and aroma to reach full maturity.
The Superfood Smoothie Mix is made of 100% Organic Hemp Seed Protein, Brazil Nut Protein, Mesquite, Coconut Sugar, Goji Berry Extract, Acai, and Vanilla.

The typical fruit smoothie is essentially a sugar bomb: very high in sugars and starches, with very little protein or fat. Our Superfood Smoothie Mix was formulated to provide a balanced ratio of macronutrients — carbohydrates, fiber, protein, and fat — in order to minimize blood sugar fluctuations that typically result from diets high in carbohydrate.
The Superfood Smoothie Mix is sweetened with coconut sugar and mesquite, two ingredients famous for their minimal impact on blood sugar. Mesquite rates a 25 on the Glycemic Index and Coconut Sugar rates a 35. Since the primary ingredients — hemp protein and brazil nut protein — are very-low glycemic, the sugar/carb impact of these sweeter ingredients is minimal.
With 5 grams per serving, the Superfood Smoothie Mix is an excellent source of fiber, providing 20% of your daily requirement. Fiber is very important for digestive health and regularity, and has been linked to lower cholesterol levels and increased cardiovascular health.
This mix also provides a moderate amount of heart-healthy fats, primarily from the hemp, brazil nut, and acai. Hemp contains the ideal ratio of omega 3s to omega 6s, and also contains the rare but important fatty acid GLA. Brazil nut and Acai are both rich in Oleic Acid, the monounsaturated fatty acid responsible for many of Olive Oil's health benefits.
