CK Hall (@ckscooking) is a consultant for Pampered Chef®. She uses food and fellowship to make a difference with real food, health, and great kitchen tools! CK teaches sourcing individual ingredients rather than using complex blends. This is especially true for green superfood products like wheatgrass, which can be blended with darkly colored ingredients to hide poor color and quality. When you select single ingredients rather than blends, you can see, smell, touch and taste each individual ingredient for quality.
Green blends are often packaged in plastic tubs or paper packets. In fact, even some wheatgrass is packaged that way.
All Pines products are packaged in amber glass bottles with special metal caps containing tight seals that allow us to remove the oxygen from each bottle. That protects the product from oxidation and loss of nutrients that occurs when sensitive green food products are packaged in plastic tubs or paper packets.
Many companies that produce blends do not grow most of the ingredients themselves but deal with dozens of suppliers from far flung places, often China, for the cheapest price without consideration for quality.
With Pines, nearly all our products consist of only one or two ingredients that we grow ourselves on our own family farms. All our products are certified organic, Non-GMO Project Verfied, raw and gluten free.. We are renown for the most nutrition per consumer dollar.
