More and more of us are cooking at home. If you’re one of the millions of people in such a situation, you know the necessity of having the right ingredients on-hand – especially spices! While a pinch or two might be all you need, the right flavour can transform a meal!
If you’re looking for a little variety, we wholeheartedly recommend the Simply Organic line of spices, seasonings, and simmering sauces! This amazing company makes it easy for home cooks to create delicious meals with basic ingredients, with everything being completely organic!
Who Is Simply Organic?
Simply Organic is the all-organic off-shoot of popular company Frontier Co-op. They offer a wide selection of spices, seasonings, and flavours for baking, all of which are 100% certified organic. They receive their certification from Quality Assurance International; any food products certified by QAI are guaranteed to meet strictly defined national and international standards.
Simply Organic products also support organic agriculture around the world. In Canada, we import most spices we use from Africa, southeast Asia, and Central America. Farming in these locations, where producers are at the mercy of large conglomerates and harsher growing conditions, is tough. The organic spice farmers in these areas lead the way in improving the lives of the farmers and their communities, and Simply Organic is giving back. The company donates 1% of its sales to organic agriculture and education!
Once the spices are received, Simply Organic mixes them in just the right proportions. You’ll find a wide range of options, including seasonings for tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, and fried chicken; gravy mixes for roasted chicken and beef; even dips like French Onion, Ranch, and Guacamole!
Why Choose Organic Spices?
Believe it or not, many conventional spice options can contain extra ingredients that fill out a package. One reason to select Simply Organic is, well, in the name: their products are both organic and simple! The company doesn’t include anything not supposed to be in the mix. Buy a container of organic Italian Seasoning, for example, and you get organically-grown oregano, marjoram, thyme, rosemary, basil, and sage – only spices that are supposed to be in Italian Seasoning.
Organic foods must follow specific regulations, especially if they are international sellers. The producers have to integrate cultural, biological and mechanical practices that help them cycle resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve local biodiversity. Organic herbs and spices are not irradiated or grown with pesticides and genetically engineered ingredients (GMOs). Once harvested, companies cannot add any synthetic caking agents, chemicals, or fake colouring.
Diet & Wellness is excited to add Simply Organic seasonings and simmering sauces to our shelves. You’ll find that their delicious blends make cooking easier, taste better, and help you find more enjoyment in your food!
