That typically all processed sugar is not vegan because they use a filtration system that contains bone char, but recently Rogers transitioned their system to use activated carbon instead, therefore it’s perfect for our Hunnie!
How does delivery work?
We work with FedEx, so once your order is shipped out, you’ll receive a tracking number to follow your delivery process. Orders leave our facility on Mondays and we are guaranteed next day delivery by end of day Tuesday. If your package arrives after this time period, please let us know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or go to our chat option on the right hand side of the screen.
VWG is just the protein extracted from flour! It is made from the protein found in the endosperm of the wheat berry, containing 75% to 80% protein, and although it is like your average flour, it actually contains very little carbs, making each serving very high in protein and very low in carbs!
If you are celiac or have a gluten sensitivity/allergy, you cannot eat vital wheat gluten. As its name suggests, it’s 100% gluten, which should ring some warning bells. To put it plainly: if you’re intolerant to gluten, vital wheat gluten is just about the single worst thing you could consume.
We are just starting out and the cost of packaging is astronomical. We have sourced glass jars for our Bee-Mindful Hunnie and held off our launch of Chick'n products with hopes to find a better packaging option, but there are none that are affordable at this time, so we thought - we’ve got to start somewhere!
We do strive towards being entirely recyclable or biodegradable the moment that we can make it happen. For now, we use the bare minimum recyclable plastic - it’s no bigger than it must be.
We are working with FedEx to offer options to return shipping materials, and when we do, we encourage you to leave the shipping box (WITH RETURN LABEL) and packaging outside on your doorstep when you’re expecting your next delivery, so FedEx can bring it back for us to reuse
Once a food only known about by vegans, nutritional yeast, or “nooch,” as the cool kids call it, has gained mainstream status in the swell of the plant-based movement. The stuff is made by culturing a strain of yeast in a medium, like molasses or sugarcane, for several days. The yeast is then deactivated with heat (a.k.a. pasteurized), harvested, washed, dried, and packaged. Typically, it's also fortified with nutrients—namely B vitamins—typically found in animal products, which is good news for anyone swapping with nutritional yeast. The final product has a nutty, umami flavor that mimics Parmesan. In general, nutritional yeast is pretty darn healthy. A solid source of protein, those cheesy flakes are a complete protein, meaning they provide all nine essential amino acids. Our nutritional yeast is fortified with a whole slew of B vitamins, including vitamin B12. One serving of provides: 630 percent of your daily vitamin B12 needs, 90 percent of your daily folate needs, 420 percent of your daily vitamin B6 needs. It also offers a bit of iron, potassium, thiamine, riboflavin and zinc.
In a nutshell: Thanks to its impressive nutritional label, this stuff can benefit plant-eaters and omnivores alike.
1. It's a complete protein
2. It contains a solid amount of fibre
3. It’s MSG free
4. It provides much needed B12
5. It could help lower cholesterol
6. It’s packed with antioxidants
7. It can stabilize blood sugar levels
Yes it is! We figured out an amazing technique to get a similar consistency to bee honey, without any harm to the bees! Bees actually help us, since they’re the ones pollinating the apple trees ;)
There are also no chemicals or preservatives in our hunnie - bonus!!
We currently work with a farm in Langley and are in the works with working with some orchards in the interior of BC. We will always make sure that our apples come from local growers, so we can help our own economy. We are also striving to make this product with fallen apples to help reduce food waste - this will be something that we continue to work on as we grow
Our apple cider vinegar is made in small batches and comes from the same farm that we get our apples from!
There was an instruction portion on the back of the Thank You card that you received with your order. If you’ve since recycled that, here it is again:
Crispy Chick’n 400 for 10 mins
Popcorn Chick’n 400 for 6 mins
Crispy Chick’n 400 for 6 mins
Popcorn 400 for 4 mins
JUST MAKE SURE ITS CRISPY!
1. We sure do! Go to the main page and click the “WE WHOLESALE!’ tab to create an account and we will get back to you as soon as we can!
2. How do I use your Hunnie for foodservice?
Our hunnie is a direct replacement and more cost effective option than Maple Syrup, Agave and Bee Honey! The options are endless!
3. It sure is. Tested and approved!
We do however suggest keeping your hunnie in the fridge if you like a thicker consistency.
We like to keep one out of the fridge to use in recipes and one in the fridge for things like toast!
Because of industrial farming where chickens are reared in vast numbers. Because of government subsidies for farming. Because it costs so little to trash the planet and much more to protect it. But mostly because the chicken industry is vast while Mindful is just starting out. One of our key aims is to get the price down so it compares with meat. Until then, we are thankful you support us and you are helping us grow to a point that we can make this a reality.
Why do you want to replicate chicken when you're vegan?
It’s not the taste of chicken we object to. It’s the industrial farming, climate impact, pollution, forest destruction and loss of wildlife associated with it. It tastes just fine.
Why do you call it “chicken” when it isn’t?
Because it tastes like chicken! This helps people know what they are buying, and how to cook and serve it. We hope that we evolve out of this and won’t have to compare to it’s animal counterpart. But there’s no need to get bogged down in semantics. Mindful tastes great and is kinder to animals and the planet. Call it whatever you like. But you should definitely try it
We can’t help it. We tried not being awesome, but it didn’t work out
