Developed by American plant scientists to cook quickly, decorticated red lentils have had their seed coats removed.

Lentils are an excellent source of magnesium, folate, soluble fiber, and iron. Of all legumes and nuts, lentils contain the third highest level of protein. Twenty-six percent of lentils’ calories are attributed to protein.

Combine with traditional Indian spices for a satisfying vegetarian meal. Or enjoy as a side dish with roasted meats or veggies. If not overcooked, these legumes hold their shape and are tasty in soups and purees.

Nutritional Yeast (Large Flake) – Organic – Now in a Glass Jar!

These flakes are a favorite for adding savory flavor to soups, sauces, gravies, and prepared foods where umami flavor is needed.

Yeast has been an ingredient for baking and fermentation for more than 3000 years.

Nutritional yeast is made from a single-celled organism of fungi called Saccharomyces Cerevisiae. In a controlled environment it is cultured, left to grow, then deactivated, harvested, washed and dried. The deactivation process prevents the yeast from being used as a leavening agent.

Nutritional yeast is a flavor enhancer that offers naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and micro-nutrients. These large flakes are a bit spicier and have more yeast flavor than other nutritional yeast.

Thank You Kindly For Your Encouraging Words

I just want to express my deepest gratitude for absolutely everyone who grows the food, processes products and helps them arrive at my front door. I am so very grateful for the work ya’ll are doing. You are a strong cord of hope for me in these changing times. Thanks so much for all everyone is doing.
Many blessings and Much Love,

I wanted to thank you for getting my order of the Lake Baikal pine nuts out to me so quickly! My friends loved the quinoa salad I made for them today. I probably should order more at one time because they are so good.
Be well,

Thank you for making such a great product. My kiddos have a life threatening peanut allergy and your almond butter is the only one they’ll eat. We have tried other brands but we always come back to your almond butter. I love that it is still possible to spread it at the bottom of the jar!
Kind regards,
