Q: What is raw?
Raw means that we do not heat any of our ingredients over 115 degrees. Once food reaches a temperature of above 115, the majority of its nutrients and nutritional enzymes that aid in digestion are killed. Because we dehydrate our products below this temperature, we’re able to maintain the living enzymes and nutritional properties of our ingredients, so they can benefit your body the way nature intended!

Q: What does a raw diet consist of?
A typical raw diet consists of unprocessed and uncooked plant-based foods: vegetables, fruits, sprouted grains, nuts and seeds.
Q: Am I supposed to eat a 100% raw diet?
We believe that everyone should live the lifestyle that makes him or her feel good! Some people eat a 100% raw diet all the time, and we definitely applaud them! Brad ate an all-raw diet for one year, but now lives an 80/20 lifestyle, eating 80% raw foods. We believe that it’s all about addition, not subtraction. Keep adding more and more of the good stuff, and before you know it, you’ll be eating a lot less (if any) of the bad stuff!
We encourage you to do what makes YOU feel your best.
Q: How do you determine the price of your products?
Our products are priced accordingly for various reasons. There are two bunches of kale in each box, plus cashews, red bell peppers, sunflower seeds, etc. The products are all hand made and take 24 hours to complete one batch. If you were to make the products on your own, it would actually cost you more! We often say that the chips are an investment for your health. Furthermore, many kale companies include the stems in their boxes, and we do not. Kale stems are difficult to eat when dehydrated whole and weigh quite a bit; with our product, you’re getting 40% more kale.
Q: Do you have any nut-free flavors of Brad’s Raw Leafy Kale?
Our Nacho flavor of Brad’s Raw Leafy Kale is completely nut-free! Our Piña Kale-ada flavor contains coconut, which though very few people have an allergy to, is still technically a tree nut.
