THE BRAND is easily identifiable, its clearly Australian! Our Hulled Hemp Seeds,Oil and Protein, Chia Seeds, Brown Rice and Buckwheat foods and products are 100% Australian. They are grown, processed, packed and distributed from Australia. Generally Australian grown foods are more expensive, certainly within Australia than imported competing brands. We keep pricing competitive, maintain genuine quality, freshness and ensure there are no nasties. As we often say, if its not real, its full of chemicals, its dead, lifeless. Why feed dead food into a live body?
All our foods or products are either certified organic, bio-dynamic, organically grown or chemical and pesticide residue free. 3rd party laboratory tests confirm all.
Brands such as AUSTRALIAN GROWN NATURALS provide confidence to the grower. We just need more growers! Its a work in progress, and continue to meet with organic growers, encourage, whatever it takes ethically to broaden our range with Aussie wholesome foods.
HEMP SEEDS, PROTEIN & OIL. Hemp is probably the most loved of our products. AUSTRALIAN GROWN NATURALS export Hemp products as a food. In Australia and New Zealand (with the exception of Hemp Oil in NZ) and by legislation, AUSTRALIAN GROWN NATURALS Hemp products can only be sold for cosmetic use only. We expect this to change sometime in the future, but for now, it is what it is, our best selling and most nutritious line.
All our Hemp Products are the highest food grade quality and 100% Australian. AUSTRALIAN GROWN NATURALS Hemp is grown in Northern Tasmania. Seeds are planted in November ready for a March harvest. Once cleaned and graded, the raw seed is sent to our facility in Coolum Beach, QLD where the raw seed is hulled, which is simply removing the crunchy outer shell leaving a protein and omega rich soft inner kernel or seed. We also expel the whole (raw) seed for its oil. The by- product of expelling oil is the cake or meal, which goes through a unique process producing protein.
CHIA SEEDS. Its 2016, South Americans are dumping cheap Chia globally. Prices have plummeted since 2013. Not all is poor quality, Paraguay produce excellent Chia, as do the Mexicans, but is it fresh? Often imported Chia Seeds has been sanitized or heat-treated.
ITS A PERFECT TIME TO CONSIDER AUSTRALIAN CHIA SEEDS Despite the pricing, our customers in Hong Kong, Vietnam and Singapore keep ordering Australian grown Chia seeds, due to quality and freshness.
AUSTRALIAN GROWN NATURALS Chia is grown in the pristine farmlands of the Atherton Tableland, in North Queensland west of Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef. North Queensland is known red volcanic soils, which provide perfect conditions for growing Chia.
Our Australian Chia Seeds are new season and fresh! They may only be tiny in size but chia seeds are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. They are loaded with fibre, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids and various antioxidants.
Salvia Hispanica, commonly known as chia, belongs to the species of flowering plant in the mint family. Chia is a herb that grows annually up to 1.75 m (5.7 ft) tall. It develops from a seedling into lush green foliage before it produces purple or white flowers. These flowers develop into seed pods to produce Chia Seeds.
BROWN RICE. Our rice is solely rainfed! Its tasty and very nutritious. This particular rice is one of the most sustainable rice grown in Australia requiring no irrigation due to the high rainfall and the warm climate of Northern New South Wales. Our Brown rice is both Certified Organic and Bio Dynamic. Bio Dynamic is a deeper form of framing that works on the fundamental principle that the farm is a living organism. Bio-dynamic farming adheres to guidelines that are even more stringent than those required for organic certification. All artificial chemicals are excluded.
Other methods unique to the biodynamic approach include, the use of fermented herbal and natural mineral preparations as soil additive sprays and the use of an astronomical sowing and planting calendar to optimise plant health and crop nutrition
The end result is food that is full of natural nutrition from sustainable living soils!
BUCKWHEAT KERNELS & FLOUR. Another Australian product grown in New South Wales. Supply is now good, the growers had some lean years and much was imported from China. Buckwheat is a summer broad leaf summer crop, that requires a cool wet growing season to produce high quality grain. Buckwheat is not related to wheat, hence gluten free.
The Australian grown buckwheat is processed in a segregated gluten free facility. The buckwheat flour is milled in a segregated gluten free mill and independently tested for gluten.
