The raw truth about our organic ingredients
At Forager Project, we use only simple, organic plants to make our foods because we believe a plant-based diet is just plain better. And every ingredient we use is certified organic, meaning you’ll never find any pesticides, chemicals, or GMOs in our products.
We chose cashews as our core ingredient for lots of reasons. First of all, they’re smooth, creamy and absolutely delicious. They’re also super nutritious: rich in protein, monounsaturated fats, and essential minerals, including copper, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, and magnesium. We get our cashews from hand-picked family farm partners in Vietnam, where they’re raised without added irrigation water (better for the planet) and harvested by hand (better for people).
Fruits aren’t just great for adding natural sweetness to our foods, they provide vital nutrients our bodies need, like dietary fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and folate. More good news? Fruits are naturally low in fat and sodium.
Coconuts are the food trifecta—they’re a nut, a seed and a fruit. We love them because they add an indulgent richness to our foods and are loaded with MCTs. Plus, they’re naturally nutty-sweet, giving our products an added layer of complex and delicious flavor.
We use ancient grains in our foods because they’re much closer to their original state than modern refined grains. This means they’re good for your body, and because they’re grown with lower levels of pesticides, fertilizers and irrigation, they’re better for our planet, too. We use only gluten-free ancient grains in our foods: sprouted brown rice, quinoa, amaranth, millet and oats.
Because seeds contain all the starting materials needed to develop into complex plants, they’re powerhouses of nutrients and packed with fiber. We particularly love using sesame seeds in our foods because of the mild, nutty flavor and healthy fat content. Sesame seeds are also rich in minerals, like calcium, which support bone and overall health.
