I try and let people know about the new products that we get into the store but I have been really poor at doing this of late. So here is our latest June New Products Update.
Enema Kits – Great Quality Stainless Steel Kits (we are presently out of stock of these but ‘should’ be restocked by mid-July).
Abeego Food Wraps – after carrying these for many years they have suddenly become quite popular.
Cultures for Health (we will be expanding this line over time)
- Vegan Yogurt Culture/starter – We never seem to have enough of the vegan yogurt culture but I will try to get a more consistent supply
- San Francisco Sourdough
- Tempeh starter
- Rye Sourdough
Feel Good Syrup – Elderberry syrup. Locally made.
Raw Cacao Paste – Dark chocolate that people can use to make their own chocolates at home. It naturally contains about 40% cocoa butter. 100% Arriba Nacional variety from Ecuador, unheated and Certified Organic.
Irish Moss Whole – this is now back in stock
Berry Breeze – this is an electrical device that helps to reduce food spoilage by creating ozone and reduces the aging of vegetables and fruits. A customer was telling me that they were very impressed with this product.
Activated Charcoal in Bulk – we have several activated charcoal products that come in pill form. Also, check out the toothpastes made with activated charcoal.
ConenTrace in BULK – trace minerals so people can add them to their water – especially those people that use distillation to purify their drinking water. We also have smaller containers but we are likely the only place that people can refill from bulk. 🙂
Life Choices B Complex – is a completely vegan, non-GMO, organic plant-based B-Complex, with the world’s only Vegetarian Society and Vegan Society registered Vitamin D-3 (others are from fish oils or from sheep’s wool). It has added B-12 (methylcobalamin), Biotin and PABA in a proprietary blend of spinach, blueberry, turmeric and ginger, all sourced from organic sources.

My Magic Mud – an Activated Charcoal and Bentonite Clay Toothpaste. The first couple of times you use this it kind of freaks you out when you spit out something black into the sink.
Domatcha – Matcha teas, whisks, and accessories (in the matcha tea area). We carry other brands and sizes of matcha teas. This complements our large selection of teas and herbal infusions.
Cocoa Camino – Maple Hot Chocolate. Fair Trade and Organic with a Canadian touch
Locally baked Conchas – Mexican pastry. These are made by a customer of ours. The majority of their ingredients are certified organic (they buy most of the ingredients from us). We only get this product in on Fridays. The staff really like this pasty.

We have Thai curry pastes, Rose Water, Orange Blossom Water, Teriyaki sauces, Thai Peanut Sauce, Asian Barbecue Sauce, Hoisin, and many others to help you make up a quick ethnic infused dish.
Cominex Sambal – we will be dropping this line. One of our staff pointed out that Unilever owns this company. We do not support Unilever. Pity, since I am unsure of anyone else making sambal.
BULK Vital Wheat Gluten. This is the product you make seitan (wheat meat) from. This is what makes Field Roast and Gusta items have a chewy texture.
BULK Organic Cornstarch – most cornstarch is derived from GMO crops.
Big Mountain Veggie Grounds – made with cauliflower. Quite tasty.
Polish Pierogi – Bac’n pierogies. They are made with potato and Sailin’ On’s coconut bacon. Vegan and organic flour. (Freezer)
Gold Rush Hash browns and Sweet Potato Fries. We have two type of hash browns – shredded and diced. We will be dropping one of these and bringing in the mixed potato fries. (Freezer). I was recently alerted to the fact that this brand does not have added oil/fat to the list of ingredients.

Beyond Meat – Beyond Burger, Fiesta Crumbles, Crumbles, Southwest Chick’n, Grilled Chick’n, Lightly Seasoned Chick’n, and Beast Burger. All of these items are stocked at our downtown store but only the Beyond Burger and Beast Burger are stocked at Whyte Avenue.
- Beyond Burger – this is made by Beyond Meat and from what I understand is the uncooked version of the Beast Burger (it has a reddish colouring caused by beet and it looks more like ground beef).
Gardein – this company decided to drop 80% of their product line. They only make 4 products and downtown carries them – Beefless Ground, Golden Fish Fillets, Crispy Tenders Chick’n, and Mandarin Orange Chick’n. This line is only stocked downtown.

- We use the Kung Pao and the Lemongrass chick’n in the Grain Bowls we make in our café kitchen.
Green Organics – Mixed Vegetables (with broccoli, cauliflower, and other vegetables) and Green Beans
