Sesame Seeds

Our sesame seeds have been sourced from throughout Belize from many small backyard growers help to fill our shelves with chemical- free, small batch sesame seeds.  Our seeds are naturally dried on the plant and sold to you whole and in the (edible)shell.  The market standard is to sell hulled seeds, but the hulling process is done through a sulfur bath.   Our seeds have a nuttier flavor with a slightly earthy tone, and the shell offers a higher fiber and calcium content that the hulled products do not.

Sesame seeds are an excellent source of copper, a very good source of manganese, and a good source of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc, molybdenum, vitamin B1, selenium and dietary fiber.

Our chia seeds have been sourced from the old order Mennonite community in west central Belize.  The seeds are chemical-free and grown as part of the landscape in rich volcanic soils.

Chia Seeds contain healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium. ... One ounce (about 2 tablespoons) contains 139 calories, 4 grams of protein, 9 grams fat, 12 grams carbohydrates and 11 grams of fiber, plus vitamins and minerals.

Pepita Seeds

Our pepita seeds have been soured from many different ancient Mayan communities.  No one grows them in abundance, but traditionally, the pepita compliments the masa (corn) planting to provide additional income and more food for the family.

Pepita seeds are rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, antioxidants, and fiber. ... The fiber in pepita seeds helps lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood and decreases the risk of heart disease
