Chantal Organics Ginger Powder is a popular kitchen staple made from dried organic ginger. It is a pale yellow colour and fragrantly spicy with a zesty, warming taste.
It's not just delicious, it's also great for your body too. Ginger has been used for hundreds of years by medicinal herbalists and naturopaths for many things such as eliminating coughs and improving circulation throughout the body.
This versatile spice can be included for almost anything - from baking to marinades, or even to spice up your morning green juice!
Chantal Organics is a New Zealand company that grew out of a food co-operative established in Hawkes Bay in the 1970s. After opening their first retail store in Napier in 1983, they established themselves as a key independent organic retailer in the New Zealand market and, from there, Chantal has only expanded. At the same time, they remain to be an independent, family owned company whose business is shaped by their firm commitment to organic farming and sustainable practices, as well as their dedication to maintaining the health of the environment and community they operate in.
Their goal is now to bring organic wholefoods to Kiwi pantries nationwide, by making easy-to-use and affordable products that everyone can enjoy.

Our Teeccino is naturally caffeine-free herbal coffee, roasted and ground to brew and taste just like regular coffee. It is certified organic and contains numerous natural plant-based antioxidants from carob, dates, figs and almonds. Unlike regular coffee, Teeccino is non-acidic and gives you a natural energy boost from nutrients rather than stimulants.
Note that although Teeccino contains barley it has been independently tested (University of Nebraska) to show it doesn't contain gluten. Although gluten is present in barley, it typically does not extract out of the barley using conventional coffee brewing techniques.
Pour boiling water over the Tee-bag in a cup and steep for 3-5 minutes. Dunk the bag several times in the beginning for the best brew. Use two Tee-bags for a stronger brew in a larger mug or tea pot. Add plant based milk and natural sweetener, such as coconut sugar, coconut nectar, or agave, as you prefer.
Note: Vanilla Nut, Hazelnut and Java contain barley.
"I love the convenience. Nothing is lost but so much is gained. The flavour is just a good and strong (for bold coffee lovers like me). Kudos Teecino!"
- J.B. (Maryland, USA)
"I am so happy that I happened upon Teeccino. These Vanilla Nut Tee-bags are delicious and full bodied. I have stomach issues and shouldn't have coffee. I also have gluten sensitivity and cannot have gluten. Apparently, even though Teeccino contains barley, no gluten is present in the brewed drink. I have had no problems with it whatsoever. I am thrilled to have such a tasty coffee substitute that stands on its own in terms of its complex flavour. "

Kelp Noodles are a sea vegetable in the form of an easy to eat noodle. Made of only kelp (a sea vegetable), sodium alginate (sodium salt extracted from a brown seaweed), and water, Kelp Noodles are fat-free, gluten free and very low in carbohydrates and calories. Their noodle form and neutral taste allow for a variety of uses including in salads and stir-fries. They provide a rich source of trace minerals including iodine, which kelp is well known for, and is important for optimal thyroid function.
Kelp Noodles make a super healthy and tasty alternative to regular white wheat pasta and noodles.
No cooking is required, just rinse, cut noodles into your desired length, and add to any dish and they're ready to go. They're best added right at the end of cooking, so as not to heat them too much and destroy the valuable nutrients.
After opening, store any unused noodles in water.
