Spirulina originates from a pristine area nestled within the Andes Mountains at 9200 ft. above sea level. The combination of intense sunlight and pure glacial spring water ensure an incredibly pure & potent Incan Spirulina. The unique use of a cutting edge greenhouse system eliminates the risk of environmental contamination. It is low temperature processed and 100% raw. </br> </br> Chlorella is grown under the most strictly controlled environment. Underground water, not surface water, is used for the culturing. The underground water is filtered many times to remove unwanted elements. Filtering is repeated until tests show that the water is pure and clean. Minerals are then added to the water.
Sunflower shoots are a fantastic raw, living food that has an amazing taste, and health benefits too! Try them on a sandwich or salad. </br></br>Sunflower greens are a nutritional powerhouse packed with vitamins A, B complex, D, and E; they also contain minerals including calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and zinc. In addition to these vitamins and minerals, sunflower greens are a rich source of lecithin which helps break down fatty acids into an easily digestible water soluble form, and chlorophyll which benefits many functions within the body, including building blood supply, revitalizing tissue, calming inflammation, activating enzymes, and deodorizing the body.

Staff comment: "I love them in the oven or bbq, they are delicious."<br> This quintessential finger food is ready to thaw and load up with spices! These are the real deal of chicken wings. Free range, certified organic, certified humane, and very very good. <br><br> All our chickens and turkeys are certified organic and BCSPCA certified humanely raised. In the summer our poultry are raised free range on pasture with shelters that are moved daily onto fresh grass. The birds have lots of room to run while still having shelters to give them shade from the sun and protection from the rain. The range area and the shelters are surrounded with mesh to protect them from predators. By moving the ranges daily, the birds have access to fresh vegetative grass at all times. This gives our birds a clean healthy environment to thrive in. The birds are fed free choice certified organic grains, vitamins and minerals. In the winter the birds are raised inside to protect them from the cold and unpredictable Alberta winters. They are given ample room to move around and express natural behaviors in barns that have lots of windows to provide natural sunlight. By buying BCSPCA certified humane products you know that the meat that you are purchasing came from an animal that was treated humanely and with respect.
