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. 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 Coconuts 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.

  • Ever wonder why healthy fats are such an important part of a balanced diet? ⁠
⁠
Well, dietary fats are essential to give your body energy and to support cell growth. They also help protect your organs and help keep your body warm. Fats help your body absorb some nutrients and produce important hormones, too. ⁠
⁠
Needless to say, your body definitely needs fat.⁠

Cha's organics

Besides offering delicious and organic coconut milk, spices, tea and tropical fruit, what we love most about Montreal-based Cha's Organics 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 rare to find. We're also planning on experimenting with their jackfruit as an alternative to pulled pork, so stay tuned for that!

 

  • Any banana cream pie lovers out there? 🍌🥥 Whether you’re vegan, paleo, gluten and dairy intolerant or concerned about the impact of your food choices on the environment and the people who produce your food, what if we told you you could have your pie and eat it too? 😋 Made with fair trade bananas and coconuts that are grown in ways that actually regenerate soil while providing fair prices and premiums for growers, this coconut whipped cream banana stack is one indulgence you can feel good about that will also leave you feeling great! Pretty sweet huh? 🥰
  • Anyone else feeling the need for a post-holidays detox? We’ve got you covered! 💛
  • Goodbye 2019, it’s been a blast! 2020 here we come! 🥂✨
  • Cheers to hot drinks and fair trade spices on cozy winter nights. ☕️✨

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), raw honey (great for healthy baking, to balance the system and for sleep and relaxation), propolis (great for colds, coughs, sore throats and inflammation), and pollen (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.

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-fermented veggies are truly delicious - especially the Kale Kimchi.
