Navitas Naturals - The Superfood Company
The mission of Navitas Naturals is to provide the finest organic superfoods that increase energy and enhance health. Since 2003, health-conscious people have been choosing their organic superfoods because they are a diverse whole-food source of antioxidants, protein, essential fats, minerals, vitamins, and other key nutrients.
All of their products are certified organic and use methods such as freeze-drying and low temperature processing to ensure maximum nutrition and flavor. Organic is important for ensuring the integrity of foods that people eat, and for protecting the environment, and the health of farmers.
Quality & Food Safety
Food safety is very important to Navitas Naturals, and that is demonstrated by the rigorous third-party testing of their superfoods. Their facility and processing systems are certified organic, and are also certified under GMP and HACCP - important voluntary programs for ensuring food safety and quality. They also nurture their supplier relationships because they are critical towards achieving and maintaining high quality products.
Their products are Non-GMO Project Verified. That means they have met the rigorous standards of the Non-GMO Project - an independent non-profit reviewer that ensures products are made according to best practices for GMO avoidance.
Sustainable Agriculture for Native Farmers
Navitas Naturals is committed to socially responsible business practices. Their direct purchasing partnerships create and expand fair trade economic opportunities for farming communities in developing regions around the world.
Nativas Naturals sent me a few samples of their Caramel Coconut Chips, Cacao Hemp Superfood + Almonds, and Coconut Hemp Superfood + Pepitas.
Caramel Coconut Chips
Coconuts have been enjoyed as a tropical treat for thousands of years. Nativas Naturals has made this satiating superfood as delicious as it is nutritious. This chewy grab-and-go snack is a sweet and salty combination of organic coconut and sea salt.
The chewy coconut in this snack is a good source of energy, fiber, and healthy fats. It also contains minerals such as iron. Coconut is well known for its content of medium chain triglycerides (MCT) - healthy fats that are burned quickly by the body for energy and are not stored as fat. In particular, coconut contains lauric acid, a MCT that is known to offer many potential health benefits.
Cacao Hemp Superfood + Almonds
Integrating superfoods into your day has never been so convenient and so cravable. Navitas Naturals Superfood + snack mixes combine energizing superfoods with nutrient rich nuts. The organic Cacao Hemp Almonds are chocolate 'Handfuls of Goodness' that feature creamy almonds with a sweet and savory seasoning of cacao, coconut oil, hemp seeds, palm oil, coconut palm sugar, and sea salt.
This snack combines 3 superfoods in one delicious bite. Almonds are rich in healthy fats, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and potassium. Cacao has been enjoyed for its healthy and invigorating properties in South American cultures for thousands of years. Cacao powder is a delicious dark chocolate source of antioxidants, magnesium, iron, and fiber. Hemp seeds contain all of the essential amino acids, plenty of omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids and are also a good source of fiber, chlorophyll, vitamins, and minerals. Hemp is also eco-friendly – it’s one of the most sustainable crops on earth!
Coconut Hemp Superfood + Pepitas
Navitas Naturals Superfood + snack mixes also combine energizing superfoods with nutrient rich seeds. Their organic Coconut Hemp Pepitas feature crunchy pepitas (pumpkin seeds), chewy coconut, and hemp seeds lightly seasoned with coconut palm sugar and sea salt.
The crunchy pepitas in this grab-and-go snack blend provide protein, omega-3 fatty acids, minerals, beta-carotene, and vitamins. The chewy coconut in the mix is a good source of energy, fiber and healthy fats. Hemp seeds contain all of the essential amino acids, and they are easy for the body to digest and assimilate. Hemp also features plenty of omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids that are in the ideal ratio that nutritionists recommend. As stated above, Hemp seeds are also a good source of fiber, chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals. Hemp is eco-friendly – it’s one of the most sustainable crops on earth!
After tasting (read as: devouring) these healthy snacks from Nativas Naturals, I went out and bought more! I might even try some of their other products next time too. They have dozens of health foods and superfoods to keep your smart snacking satisfying!
