One Degree launches glyphosate-free products
February 27, 2020, Abbotsford, B.C. – With consumer demand for transparent and clean products continuing to rise, One Degree Organic Foods has announced the release of eight new products which are certified as glyphosate-residue-free, and display the BioChecked Non-Glyphosate Certified Seal that will be unveiled at Natural Products Expo West 2020.
Each product lives up to a clean-ingredient guarantee to be organic, non-GMO, glyphosate-free and to never contain anything artificial – a rarity in the cereal and granola aisle.
The products include:
- New instant oatmeal pouches: Extending One Degree’s hot cereal line in a new, instant oatmeal pouch format, the new premium packaging offers consumers an easy-to-cook breakfast or snack option in new flavours: quinoa hemp, super seeds, vanilla pecan and apple cinnamon. All are made with nutrient-dense formulas featuring sprouted oats, sweetened with lower glycemic index coconut sugar, and can be prepared by simply using hot water or in a microwave in under three minutes.
- New grain-free granolas: With the launch of Grain Free Clusters available in two flavours – maple almond and ginger cacao – One Degree is offering a product for those avoiding or looking to lessen their gluten intake. Both products are gluten-free and contain superfoods such as flax seeds, chia seeds, ginger, coconut oil and walnuts, all of which can be traced directly back to the farmer who harvested them.
- Sprouted cacao flakes and sprouted vanilla puffs: The new gluten-free products, join One Degree’s line of cold cereals and were created as healthier alternatives to traditional, highly processed cereals on the market. With a sprouted oat and rice base, the new products are packed with all the benefits of sprouted grains that help to balance blood-sugar levels and are gentler on the digestive system.
One Degree Organics will be sampling the new product innovations from March 3 to 7 at Natural Products Expo West 2020 in Anaheim, Calif., at Booth #1960.
One Degree is also announcing a new supplier – IBIS Rice – for all its rice-based products. The priority was to find a dryland rice with naturally low levels of arsenic in the groundwater and soil and the search took One Degree to the northern plains of Cambodia, which offers a pristine growing environment for the rice. The organic rice does not use irrigation and relies solely on rainfall for its growth and development.
“One of our favourite things about IBIS Rice is that, in addition to providing us with rice that meets our high-standards by using environmentally friendly farming methods, they are protecting 500,000 hectares of precious forest and wetlands, conserving more than 50 endangered animal species and increasing the incomes of 1,000 rice-farming families,” says One Degree co-founder Stan Smith. “When we say we know our farmers and there is just ‘one degree of separation,’ we mean it. Our name echoes our commitment to total food transparency.
“Transparency is at the heart of everything we do at One Degree. We’re excited to be expanding our product lines and continue to give our customers the ability to meet the farmers behind each ingredient. The new products were developed with evolving consumer preferences in mind, from new formats to bold flavours, and we can’t wait for everyone to get a taste.”
One Degree Organics is family-founded and family-run by passionate organic food advocates with a deep respect for sustainable farming and clean, nourishing foods.
