Celebrating our 15th birthday has gotten us thinking about how far we’ve come. Did you know…
We are very pleased to introduce our new Refined Coconut Oil (available in 23 oz. glass jars & 54 oz. BPA-free containers). Look for it at Whole Foods Market stores nationally and at nutiva.com.
Unlike other companies that use chemicals, Nutiva Refined Coconut Oil is made though a steam refining process. Absolutely no chemicals are used!
Search the Internet, and you will likely find hundreds of recipes for “DIY Sunscreen.” Why? Consumers are tired of the standard, chemical-filled sunscreens that have flooded the marketplace. The Environmental Working Group has outlined “The Trouble with Sunscreen Chemicals,” and it is very apparent that toxicity is the underlying theme. Since we already knew that Coconut Oil has a (natural) SPF of about 8, it only makes sense that we could combine other ingredients for a stronger (sans-chemicals) SPF sunscreen.
Some of the biggest news in the food industry this year was the moment of General Mills (GM) converting Cheerios to a non-GMO cereal. In January, GM announced that it would halt the use of genetically modified ingredients in original yellow-box Cheerios. This cultural milestone signals not only the swelling consumer exodus from industrial GMO foods, but also the rise of the use of social media by foodies to change the conversation.
