We're excited to announce the debut of our newest hummus flavor,
"Olive". We've been wanting to do something with olives for a long
time, but availability of affordable raw olives has been a challenge.
We've finally settled on a recipe that uses raw kalamata olives that
we can sell for the same price as our other flavors. These olives are
from Greece and are not pasteurized or heated in any way during their
However, they are packed in a brine that contains wine vinegar which
we believe is not raw. Except for the olives, the recipe is the same
as our "Original" hummus recipe, minus the parsley.
Given that there are many degrees of purity in a raw diet, we're
hoping that a product with only a tiny fraction of calories that have
been pasteurized will be appealing to our customers. Considered in the
context of the very high quality of these olives and the richness of
minerals and vitamins that they provide, we feel that this recipe
could be a good choice. We invite you to check it out.
Lastly, it's our hope that informing our customers through forums such
as this that we can meet our goals for transparity, quality, service
and sustainability. Please let us know what you think as we develop
our recipes with you in mind.
Many blessings and good health,
