अन्नदानं महादानं विद्यादानमतः परम् |

[Giving food to a person is a great deed, but giving vidyaa (education) is even better. The satisfaction obtained from food is momentary, but that from vidyaa lasts for lifetime.]
In last 40 years, we have been driven away from natural foods, inhaling and ingesting foods that have molecules that were never known to human body during the entire evolution of millions of years. Further, the way we consume these artificial foods e.g. fruits juices versus Fruit with its skin, adds to redundancy of many body processes. To add to it, modern jobs require unhealthy postures, unnatural stress, less exposure to sunlight and less daytime sweating, and many such factors add to health problems.
These are causing increasing rates of health issues, starting with manageable ones like acidity, skin issues, obesity and then progressing to loss of immunity, indigestion, diabetes, heart issues, and in increasing cases graduating to cell mutations causing cancers. Such scenarios have made a mockery of human life, families and in most cases financial well-being. It is time NOW to move to natural forest foods, starting with simple food habit changes. Simply turn to nature and see the wonderful results.
The above shloka is the essence of our products. They are not about just eating or enjoying, but also learning about the beauty and greatness of our traditional foods, grown in forests. In turn, each product sold, opens the eyes of our extended team and many remote communities we work with. For us, each product item is an expression of the beautiful food forests we preserve.
We prefer that most of our products are eaten in pristine raw form. For example, the skin of lemon from our farms has the most amount of health benefits. But they are mostly lost once processed and preserved, and pulp and skin are discarded. Similarly, our grains and pulses are processed in traditional Indian manner, and not using vegetable oils and colors, in machines.
We advise folks to consume as the nature gives, in the form it gives, and in the season it gives.
