Canadian Health Products and Brands

Wellpicks: Canadian Health Food Companies you should know about

For any foodie or health nut, the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) trade show is like heaven. Imagine a giant room filled with rows upon rows of food, coffee, tea, wine, skincare products, etc. all with health and wellness at the forefront.ย We spent hours wandering the maze of wellness and thought we'd share with you some of our favourite Canadian products, taking taste, natural, organic ingredients and great branding into consideration.


Naked Coconuts

While we love a good coconut oil (Naked Coconuts make a great virgin coconut oil along with an unscented option), what we love most about Vancouver-based Naked Coconutsย is their Soy-Free Seasoning Sauce. This soy sauce alternative, also known as coconut aminos, is made from fermented coconut sap (though it doesn't have a strong coconut taste), and offers a salty-sweet sauce perfect for making salad dressings, cooking with or marinating. It's also raw, organic, non-GMO and gluten-free, and contains 65% less sodium than traditional soy sauce. And in case you want even more flavour, they also offer sesame ginger and chilli garlic teriyaki sauces.

  • We don't know what took us so long to be one of the few who didn't know @tropicallylina! Her recipes and tropical vibes are definitely right up our alley! .

Cha's organics

Besides offering delicious and organic coconut milk, spices, tea and tropical fruit, what we love most about Montreal-based Cha's Organicsย are their principles. They are avid supporters of organic agriculture and fair trade, sourcing their spices and coconuts from biodiverse, small and medium family-owned farms. We're big fans of their spices, but also love that their coconut milk contains no fillers or preservatives which is very rareย to find. We're also planning on experimenting with their jackfruit as an alternative to pulled pork, so stay tuned for that!

 

  • Had a little taste of paradise tonight, a fine assortment of curries cooked by Cha and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Thanks to @eosnaturalfoods for the supplies and to our good friends and gracious hosts here in this dreamland they call home. ๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ•๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒป
  • If you're looking for a good place to pick up some of our new organic tropical fruit in the GTA, look no further than Fiesta Farms! Awesome selection, awesome deals, your one stop shop for all things Cha's. ๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿˆ

Beekeepers Naturals Honey

Beekeeper's Naturals

We basically love everything about Toronto-based Beekeeper's Naturals. From their branding, product quality to their company values, they are a brand we are excited to get behind. Their goal is to provide "all-natural superfoods from the hive" - great for immunity, energy and brain clarity - with an emphasis on sustainable sourcing and beekeeping. Their staple products include royal jelly (a nutrient dense, brain boosting elixir),ย raw honeyย (great for healthy baking, to balance the system and for sleep and relaxation), propolisย (great for colds, coughs, sore throats and inflammation), and pollenย (provides a vitamin boost, a source of protein, great for muscle recovery and energy). They also have a limited edition cacao honey that is unreal.

  • Its not you it's me, I just need my space...and so do the bees!

Ready to beek out on this one? The concept of bee space is one that has been explored through Europe and America in the early 1800s, but L.L. Langstroth filed a patent in 1852 in the USt for a hive very similar to those still in use today in which specific dimensions were indicated for the spaces between the parts found throughout a hive. These exact parameters were discovered and applied to maximize the passageways of bees throughout the hive and between frames. #beefact #historylesson

Green Table Foods

Green Table Foods

We try to eat fermented foods as much as we can, so were excited to discover a new brand that's local, (based out of Guelph, ON), family-run, organic, small batch, "local fair trade" (they purchase all their ingredients from surrounding organic farms), AND use glass, vs. plastic jars! Green Table Foods checks every item off our list, and their kimchi, sauerkraut and other lacto-fermentedย veggies are truly delicious - especially the Kale Kimchi.

  • Liven up the holidays w/@greentablefoods #loveONTfood #FeastON #vegan
  • Some things still get made here! #kimchi #local #organic
  • Don't they all look sweet? The team that makes magic happen.
  • I think I found sunshine in a jar! #kimchi #fermented
