In spring 2014, along with the launch of our beautiful new boxes, we’ll be making a couple of very minor ingredient amendments, based on availability sourcing / volume needs.
In Zeal, we’ll be substituting our Whiting for another white fish, Alaska (Walleye) Pollock. The Pollock is fished directly from the Pacific waters off the coast of Alaska and is MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certified. Alaska’s seafood resources are considered healthy, sustainable and recognized as one of the world’s best-managed fisheries. White fish like Pollock is low in fat, and an excellent source of protein, and a source of Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s).
In Love and Grace, we’ll be replacing the dandelion greens with another leafy green – Chard. Our new chard is a beautiful, vibrant product with lovely piece identity, and an ingredient that we’ve just recently been able to source. It’s grown in Germany. Chard is a ‘superfood’ powerhouse of phytonutrients (antioxidants), vitamins and minerals including the phytonutrients beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin, plus Vitamins A, K and Iron.
Neither of the above changes will impart any significant nutritional variations in the products, and the consistency and taste will also be unaffected. The changes will begin in our February production run (rolling out to distributors and retailers beginning in March 2014) and will be clearly noted on the packaging, in the ingredient statement as well as via a sticker, applied to the front of the initial box run.
As always, we’re here to help if you have any questions on these ingredient adjustments, or anything else you’d like to ask us about!
