Goji Berries in History
Goji berries have been in use for at least the last 1,700 years. First used by the Tibetans in China, these berries have become a staple in not only in Eastern cuisine, but also Eastern medicine. Rumor has it that the goji berry was discovered by a doctor who was studying the longevity of a particular tribe in the Himalayas whose members consistently lived for more than 100 years, had no grey hair, and healthy teeth. The doctor came across the well that grew above goji vines that that the inhabitants drank from. As the goji berries would ripen, they would fall into the well and their nutrients would dissolve into the water.
In Chinese mythology, goji berries are known as the fruit of immortality. Even today, Chinese medicine uses goji berries to treat liver, immune system, circulation problems, and more.
Known as: Goji Berry, Goji Berries, Gojiberry, Gojiberries, Wolfberry, Wolfberries, Wolf Berry, and Wolf Berries

Chia seeds (Salvia hispanica) are extremely high in Omega 3 and are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Our Chia seeds are raw, Non-GMO, non-irradiated, and produced without pesticides.
Chia Seeds Health Information
30% of Chia seed oil is Omega 3 oil. 10% of its oil is Omega 6 oil. This is the perfect balance of essential fatty acids.
Chia seeds are great for athletes because they are highly hydrophilic, meaning they can absorb large amounts of water. They can hold 10 times their weight in water making them a great enhancer in hydrating our bodies.
Studies show that eating chia seed slows down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrate calories into simple sugars. This leads scientists to believe that the chia seed may have great benefits for diabetics.
The chia seed gels when becoming wet and this gel, when in our digestive systems, helps prevent some of the food, hence calories that we eat from getting absorbed into our system. This blockage of calorie absorption makes the chia seed a great diet helper. Eating the seeds also helps dieters by making them feel fuller faster so they will be less hungry.
You do not need to grind the Chia Seeds to digest it. It is a relatively easy to digest seed, whereas flax seeds are not. Often, one has to grind flax seeds to be able to process them in their digestive system. That is not the case with chia seeds.
Chia seeds can be eaten raw as a dietary fiber and omega 3 supplement. Chia seeds soaked in water or fruit juice are also often consumed and is known in Mexico as chia fresca. The soaked seeds are gelatinous in texture and are used in gruels, porridges and puddings. Ground chia seed is used in baked goods including breads, cakes and biscuits.

Mochi rice cakes are a light, sweet Japanese dessert treat. With a soft, silky, and chewy texture, these delectable rice cakes will disappear before you know it. Our Mochi is similar to the Mochi used in frozen yogurt shops like PinkBerry, Red Mango, and Yogen Fruz.
In Japan, where mochi originates, the rice cakes are traditionally prepared during a ceremony called mochi-tsuki. To make the mochi, glutinous rice, a sweeter and stickier variety, is first soaked overnight and then cooked. The use of glutinous rice is an important element that gives mochi its trademark sticky texture and sweetness. After the rice is cooked, an old-fashioned wooden mallet and stone mortar are used to pound out the rice into a smooth, wet dough. Finally, the dough is shaped into round balls and dusted with cornstarch.
Mochi is commonly eaten by itself, with sweet condiments, or as a topping for ice cream, yogurt, desserts, and cereal. Daifuku (mochi stuffed with a sweet filling) is a traditional treat that’s popular in Japanese cultures today. Mochi is often served stuffed with sweet azuki bean paste, sweetened plum, or ground up peanuts. Two modern spins on traditional daifuku, mochi frozen yogurt and mochi ice cream have become increasingly popular in recent years.
Give this unique treat a try and you won't be disappointed! The soft chewiness coupled with the silky sweetness makes mochi a satisfying treat. It's not surprising that this sweet rice cake is quickly gaining popularity around the country!
We recommend that you keep mochi refrigerated to preserve its freshness.
This sweet rice cake is often eaten during Japanese New Year festivities. The Japanese believe that mochi symbolized the spirit of rice and that, by eating mochi, they will acquire the strength of the rice divinities.
Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick
Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut likes mochi rice cakes because they have less than half the sugar compared to many other sweet treats. They're also a great topping for frozen yogurt or whole grain cereal. See full product details

The antioxidant benefits of dark chocolate come from cacao, too. Typically chocolate bars contain a percentage of cacao, some as little as 10%. By choosing raw cacao nibs, you incorporate 100% cacao into your diet.

Non-Pasteurized, Raw, Organic Almonds
Perfectly delicious, loaded with nutrition and significant in size, these almonds are among our
best selling products. Our raw organic almonds are just that--truly raw and non-pasteurized
--and certified organic. Great raw nuts like these can be difficult to get in the United States,
as California almonds marketed as "raw" are often steam-pasteurized, but our non-pasteurized
almonds are imported from Spain.
The robust flavor of our organic almonds makes them a superior snack all by themselves, and they're
incredible in homemade trail mix or sprinkled over desserts. You can even blend them in a food
processor or coffee grinder to make your own fresh, raw almond flour.
Organic Raw Almond Nutrition
Almonds are considered to have a higher nutritional density than other nuts--that is, they offer the
greatest amount of nutrients per calorie. With every organic raw almond serving, you're getting a
hearty dose of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that includes:
Monounsaturated fat, good for cholesterol
With all these essential assets, our bulk almonds are great for your heart, immune system, bones,
teeth, digestive system and much more. A simple handful a day can be a major part of a whole-health
Amazingly Filling Organic Raw Nuts
Almonds' monounsaturated fat can not only lower LDL or "bad" cholesterol, it can keep you full--
really full--for a really long time. For this reason, almonds are promoted more frequently
than other organic raw nuts as a powerful weight loss food. When it comes to a great tasting,
nutrient-rich snack that makes it easier to avoid overeating, organic almonds have few rivals.
Maca (lepidium meyenii) is an adaptogenic root known for its dynamic natural effects--users tend to
experience a big boost in energy, relief from stress and even an increase in libido. While it is
sometimes prepared and eaten as a root vegetable in the few areas where it is available fresh,
its nutritional and medicinal assets are concentrated in this raw organic maca powder.
By sprinkling a few teaspoons of this powder over food or stirring it into juice, smoothies or yogurt,
you can prepare a concoction with a powerful dose of calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium and seven
essential amino acids. And beyond its noticeable effects on energy and endurance, a daily maca
supplement regimen can promote better endocrine system health and may relieve ulcers, mild depression
and menopause symptoms.
Maca Powder: Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick
There are 4 grams of fiber in just 1/2 ounces of maca powder and maca powder is known for its energy boosting properties. Plus, the powder has a mild flavor that doesn't overpower other tastes. Our Health Nut and Registered Dietitian says maca powder is a great way to boost the nutrient content of baked goods, such as breads, pancakes or muffins. When baking, add a few teaspoons to the flour mixture in the recipe to ensure it's mixed well throughout the batter.
Origins of Organic Maca Powder
Maca is a finicky root that only grows well in the cold, arid climates of high mountain plateaus,
and in soil that is inhospitable to most other crops. It is native to the Peruvian Andes, where
it is still cultivated and carried to the villages below to be dried and ground into organic
The root has a rich history in Peruvian culture and is believed to have been traditionally consumed
by ancient Incan warriors just prior to battle, giving them superior endurance and strength.
Its use as an aphrodisiac and fertility aid is also a time-honored Peruvian tradition. Maca benefits
have historically been so sought-after and well-known in the area that the root was accepted by the
Spanish as a form of currency during the colonization of the Inca Empire.
Powdered Maca in Your Diet
Our powder has a mild, pleasant flavor that makes it an easy additive to everyday drinks and food.
It's a great complement to oatmeal and other hot morning cereals, and powdered maca is even sweet
enough to blend into milkshakes or stir into hot chocolate. Sprinkle a few teaspoons into cookie
or bread dough to create baked goods with a punch, or combine it with our Organic Raw Cacao Powder for an extra-energizing maca supplement.
Spirulina is a vivid blue-green algae that commonly grows in freshwater lakes and ponds. It's considered a complete protein, containing an ideal balance of all 9 essential amino acids. And its protein is more digestible than other rich protein sources such as red meat and even soy.
Spirulina's whopping protein content isn't the only asset that gives it its superfood status—it's naturally loaded with vitamins A through E, iron, potassium, calcium, and antioxidants. All it takes is one to two teaspoons per day, mixed into virtually any food or liquid, to add a major boost of protein, vitamins and minerals to your everyday diet.
Our spirulina is grown in open-channel, shallow, man-made raceway ponds. Paddle wheels move the water to accelerate growth while growers continually add clean, fresh water and nutrients to the ponds to keep the spirulina thriving. When ready, the spirulina is harvested with filters, washed in fresh water, and then dried by spray drying machines. Our spirulina is non-irradiated and non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism).
To enjoy this superfood, mix 1 teaspoon of the powder in liquids, smoothies, salad dressings, guacamole, or sprinkle it in food. It'll blend right in with the smoky taste of seaweed and give your meal superpowers!
Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick
Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut likes to add spirulina to guacamole to boost protein content of the heart-healthy dip. Spirulina is about 55-77% protein by weight compared with 27% of meat and 34% of soy. This means that one ounce boasts 16 grams of protein.
Benefits You Can Feel
1. Because its cell walls have no cellulose, spirulina's protein is 85%-95% digestible. This percentage is higher than that of any other common plant!
2. Spirulina has an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) of over 24,000, which is four times the ORAC score of blueberries! The ORAC score measures the antioxidant concentration in foods.
3. Spirulina also contains a wide range of minerals, ranging from calcium to potassium to zinc.
4. Spirulina has 26 times the calcium of milk, which makes it a more potent alternative to common calcium sources such as dairy and cheeses.
5. Spirulina may lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Its anti-inflammatory properties stem from the presence of gamma linolenic acid.
What Experts Say
SHAPE Magazine:"A daily 4,500mg dose of this blue-green algae can help relax artery walls and normalize blood pressure. It may also help your liver balance your blood fat levels-decreasing your LDL cholesterol by 10% and raising HDL cholesterol by 15 percent."
Dr. Oz from the Dr. Oz Show:"For a metabolism-boosting snack, blast off with spirulina. Made from dehydrated blue-green algae, spirulina is a miracle from the sea for your metabolism. It's packed with protein and all the essential amino acids your body needs to keep your metabolism charged up by fueling your cells."
Spirulina Through the Ages
Named the "Best Food for the Future" at the 1974 United Nations World Food Conference, spirulina soon caught on as a possible solution to severe malnutrition in third-world nations. The Intergovernmental Institution for the use of Micro-algae Spirulina Against Malnutrition (IIMSAM) was later founded to promote spirulina benefits such its ability to provide the malnourished with nutrients, its low amount of side effects and eco-friendly cultivation practices.
A true future food, it may even soon be cultivated in zero gravity by NASA and the European Space Agency. In fact, NASA includes spirulina in its astronauts' diet and plans to grow the algae on its space station.

Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a light, fluffy, edible seed that feels and tastes more like a grain. Our quinoa is pre-rinsed so it is ready for cooking!
Thanks to its mild, somewhat nutty and irresistible flavor, organic quinoa is an immensely popular
food. But this "mother grain" is also valued for its tremendous nutritional content.
wholesome attributes that make quinoa grain special are:
12% to 18% protein, more than any grain
All nine essential amino acids
High in dietary fiber
Good source of phosphorous, magnesium and iron
This power-packed nutritional combo helped give quinoa the name "Gold of the Incas" when it was
cultivated thousands of years ago in the Andes; Incan warriors highly valued the crop for the
energy and stamina it gave them.
Chef Joe of PBS's Taste This TV used our quinoa to make Quinoa with Goat Cheese and Dried Sausage, and he loved it!
"Nuts.com quinoa is another great product that is completely natural, gluten free, kosher, and grown wild. Unlike other products, Nuts.com quinoa is pre-rinsed and therefore do not have that bitter taste other quinoa products may have. Over the last few years, I have tried many other quinoa products and nothing can be compared to Nuts.com quinoa!"
Quinoa: Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick
Our Health Nut places quinoa at the top of her favorite "grains" list and likes to use it in stir-fries in place of rice. Quinoa earns its top spot because it has double the protein compared to other whole grains and is considered a complete protein source because it has all the essential amino acids.
Start with a Simple Quinoa Recipe
Cooking quinoa is extremely easy and fast. Just combine one part of our bulk quinoa with
two parts water or broth, bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 to 20
minutes. Fluff it with a fork, and it's delicious and ready to serve as-is or with your choice
But this basic quinoa recipe is just the beginning. Cooked quinoa is similar in flavor, texture
and consistency to both rice and couscous, but it is much more nutritious. Try substituting this
superfood for rice or couscous in all sorts of recipes--stir fry, soup, casseroles and more--
to reinvent it as a high-protein meal. You can also make quinoa flour by grinding the seeds.
Store quinoa in sealed plastic or glass containers in a cool, dark, dry cabinet. Quinoa will stay fresh for one year if properly stored.
Buy Quinoa for Special Diets
One of quinoa's greatest benefits is that it is so well suited to a wide range of dietary restrictions.
As a rare complete protein in the plant world, it can be the cornerstone of nutrition for vegans and
vegetarians who can't get protein from meat, fish, poultry or dairy.
Our bulk quinoa is
naturally gluten-free, certified kosher and grown wild, free of all pesticides and chemicals. And when you buy quinoa from Nuts.com, it arrives at your door pre-rinsed and free of the natural
saponin that can give the cooked seeds a bitter taste.
What the Experts Say about Quinoa
Dr. Weil says, "Quinoa's protein is complete, containing all nine essential amino acids - a rarity in the plant kingdom… a must-add to your culinary repertoire."
Dole Nutrition Institute says, "Quinoa incorporates quite a lot of nutrients into tiny seeds. It contains more protein than most grains and offers a more evenly balanced array of amino acids, the building blocks of protein. Quinoa is also higher in phosphorus, magnesium, copper, zinc and iron than most grains."
