Scroll down a bit for the Hydrolysate...


"The Food of a Thousand Uses". Unflavored and unsweetened, 100% pure beef gelatin. Can be added to stocks to thicken, and will assist in the digestion of all foods. For use in any recipe calling for gelatin such as real fruit jellies or our cod liver oil chews. Or add to a hot drink.

  • Sprinkle over room temperature liquid to swell and soften, then gently heat to dissolve.
  • Or can be dissolved directly in boiling water

Great Lakes

The Great Lakes beef gelatin is from grass fed cattle raised and slaughtered in Argentina and Brazil.

The Great Lakes pork gelatin is from hogs fed raw corn, pellets, selected waste foods from restaurants and grocery stores, when available.

Great Lakes

Beef Collagen Hydrolysate




Gelatin - Collagen Hydrolysate

This is the same collagen found naturally in bones, skin and cartilage and provides amino acids to help the body repair tissues.

It is a bovine collagen that has been hydrolysed so that it can be mixed in with cold or warm liquids. This is ideal for protein shakes, and mixes best in a blender or shaker.

According to the can, 1 Tbs has the same nutritional make up as the Great Lakes gelatin above. But it is a much bigger can for the same weight, and on our scales 1 Tbs weighed 5gm.

The recommended dosage is 1 heaped tablespoon (which might come to 10gm if generously heaped, and would supply maybe 8-9 gms protein) twice a day.



Quantum Nutritional Flakes


Quantum Nutritional Flakes

Ingredients: Primary Grown Nutritional Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)

Quantum Nutritional Flakes are a source of extra protein for vegetarians, containing 18 amino acids, including good amounts of lysine and tryptophan. They are rich in B-complex vitamins, especially helpful for stress reduction and contain 15 minerals.

In the Superfoods chapter of Nourishing Traditions, Sally Fallon says: "Dried nutritional yeast is an excellent natural source of B complex vitamins (except for B12) plus a variety of minerals. Look for yeast that has been processed at low temperatures. Yeast does not contribute to candida as has been claimed— candida feeds on refined carbohydrates, not yeast. The late eminent physician Dr. Henry Bieler treated many cases of chronic fatigue with yeast supplements."

Sprinkle 1 or 2 teaspoons over any food to impart a rich, hearty, nutty-like flavor.

Apricot kernels




Apricot kernels

A whole food source of laetrile, also known as vitamin B17.

Some people eat apricot kernels, in conjunction with a whole food diet, as part of a natural cancer treatment protocol. If you're one of them, we recommend that you take up to a maximum of one kernel per 5kg bodyweight, per day, in split doses, eaten whole.

New Zealand grown, from Otago. The apricots aren't organic, but the kernels have been tested and found residue free.







Raw cacao (cocoa) powder

We are now stocking two different raw cacao powders.

The Loving Earth product from Peru is the one you're used to buying from us, and we still have that available in the 1kg bags.

The smaller bags are now Raw Planet brand, 250gm (instead of 300gm) and come from Bali. It is a bit more affordable than the smaller Loving Earth bags were, but is still an excellent product.

After some extensive taste testing in the Nature Foods office, we felt that the Bali powder had a richer, darker chocolate taste, and the Peru powder was maybe a bit more complex in flavour. Though most people probably wouldn't notice the difference unless trying them together, and we were split 50/50 on which tasted best.

The Chocolate Peanut Butter Slice recipe above tastes even better made with either of these raw cacao powders.





Raw organic cacao (cocoa) butter

This is premium quality organic, raw cocoa butter from Bali for anyone who wants to make their own chocolate. It makes lovely white chocolate for GAPS patients, or anyone on a sugar restricted diet, especially when combined with the creamed coconut. See Deb's recipe blog for some recipes.

Acerola powder

We have Camu camu powder, which Sally says is fine. This has about three times the vitamin C as acerola, so reduce the dose accordingly. Or Lifestream now have Acerola powder.


We now stock Premier Research Labs Quantum Nutritional flakes
