Products

Some more specific information on things other than fresh fruits and vegetables that i’m using.
All of these should be organic and raw, however a few are not and were sometimes purchased by mistake. Other non-raw products like health supplements, have been purchased intentionally. Most products have thorough descriptions and links to the manufacturer’s web page for more information.

Click here to see my short list of favourite products.

December 10, 2011 note: very few of these are purchased on a regular basis. Many prices listed will have changed over time as well as no longer being available at the stores listed.
December 2016: i eat more vegan products this year and include many of them in this list

Store – The Big Carrot
Ingredients – purified water, organic soybean, naturally malted organic wheat and barley extract, vanilla extract, calcium carbonate, kombu seaweed, sea salt, sodium bicarbonate
Note – bought this by mistake, meant to purchase almond milk as I don’t want to support soy products

Product name – Hemp Bliss, Unsweetened Original, Manitoba Harvest
Product price – $3.59 / 946 mL
StoreBaldwin Naturals (see bottom of page)
Ingredients – Filtered water, organic hemp seeds, xanthan gum, sea salt. Contains no preservatives, lactose free, soy free, gluten free, cholesterol free, nut free.
Note very strong nut taste. More watery than soy milk. I don’t find this pleasant to drink but i’m sure the vanilla or chocolate would taste much better. I doubt i’d like their sweetened version either as I just don’t like the nut taste.

Product nameLiving Harvest, Hempure, Original
Product price – $3.75 / 32 oz – 946 mL
StoreThe Health Shoppe
Ingredients – Hemp Nut Base (Filtered Water, Hemp Nut [Shelled Hemp Seed]), Brown Rice Syrup, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Tricalcium Phosphate, Carrageenan, Sea Salt, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D2, Riboflavin, Vitamin B12.

Note – can’t recall why I got the vanilla. Perhaps Baldwin Naturals didn’t have a plain. I used to buy the Loblaws PC Blue Menu plain soy and liked it. I haven’t tried this yet but will edit this once I have.

Product namePacific Foods, Organic, Almond, Original
Product price – $2.99 / 946 mL  (on sale)
StoreThe Health Shoppe
Ingredients – Filtered water, organic almonds, organic evaporated cane juice, potassium citrate, sea salt, carrageenan
Note – light nut taste. More watery than soy milk…same as hemp milk. I was not liking this when I first tried it…but got used to it in a week and now enjoy it.

Like i’ve said before…packaging is a negative and I don’t see the need for milks so will gradually get rid of them. (except making my own coconut…thing)

PROTEIN SUPPLEMENTS:

Product name – Hemp Protein, Dark Chocolate, Manitoba Harvest
Product price – $18.99 / 16 oz – 454 g  (on sale)
Store – Baldwin Naturals (see bottom of page)
Ingredients – organic hemp protein powder, organic fair trade evaporated cane juice, organic fair trade cocoa powder
Note – even back when I used this to make a hot chocolate with soy…the graininess would not go away so it was uncomfortably gritty. That’s why I put as little as I do in the smoothies. The chocolate taste is unnoticeable so any powder should do…but i’m not finished experimenting yet so…
Aug 8, 2010 entry:  Ooops…running out of this and went to replace…asked some questions and realized this is not a raw product.

Product price – $63.99 / 1000 g – 2.2 lbs
StoreThe Big CarrotWholistic Dispensary
Ingredients – whole brown rice protein (bio-fermented raw sprouted whole grain brown rice protein)
Note – looks, smells and appears to have the same consistency of the Garden of Life Raw Protein. I’m having difficulty seeing anywhere that the original material is organic. Just that the “process” is organic certified. You’d think that the logo with a Roman Centurion would have alerted me. I would think most if not all vegan’s worldwide would be unimpressed with glorifying a soldier.
