What is organic?
Organic certification is a verification of the system of production, processing, and distribution that assures consumers that the products maintain the organic integrity throughout the supply chain. The environmental benefits of organic farming are well-established and the organic seal gives shoppers the freedom to choose how their food consumption impacts the world. Earth Circle Organics is certified by Organic Certifiers, Inc.
Since Earth Circle Organics imports, ships, and distributes products internationally, they have elected to become certified to both the USDA and European Union standards.
What is raw?
The definition of raw is not set by a regulatory or government agency, but raw foods are considered to be those which have been minimally processed, with reduced application of heat in order to preserve living elements in the superfoods. In addition to being deliciously simple and natural, raw foods can be a great addition to any diet. They can provide vitamins, minerals and enzymes and promote energy and vitality into your daily routine.
Are the products gluten free?
Many of Earth Circle Organics' products are gluten free naturally. All of their dried fruits and most of their powders are naturally gluten free, and they feature gluten free coconut flour for baking.
How should the products be stored?
All of Earth Circle Organics' products are considered shelf stable. Some of their packages indicate ‘Keep Refrigerated’ as a recommendation for storage after opening, mostly as a precaution. For example, the organic hemp protein powder does not have to be refrigerated, but after the package is open storing it in a cool dry place such as the refrigerator helps to extend the powder’s shelf life, especially if you do not use the powder within a few months. You can also keep the powder in a cool, dry cupboard in an air-tight container and achieve similar results.
Coconut sugar is made by evaporating the nectar of the coconut palm, a highly sustainable resource which is beneficial to the ecosystem. The collected nectar is kettle-boiled into a rich caramel syrup, then dried and ground into crystals.
Coconut sugar brings a subtle sweetness to all-natural desserts or drinks and adds a bold and exotic flavor to savory dishes. It is truly a remarkable replacement for overly refined and processed sugars. This low glycemic sugar has a moist, crumbly texture and its own unique caramel taste. It is perfect for baked goods, including cakes, muffins, cookies, and desserts. It can also be used to sweeten superfood protein bars, raw chocolate, granola, and more! Sauces, stir fries, and dressings also benefit with a touch of coconut palm sugar.
Coconut sugar can be used in most recipes in place of cane sugar in a 1:1 ratio.
Your purchase of ECO coconut palm sugar helps to support organic farms in South East Asia. Earth Circle Organics' suppliers are certified Fair Choice, ensuring that they work directly with farmers to provide fair wages, improve social conditions, and support sustainable development to create better livelihoods for over 10,000 families.
