Artisana is a company I have really enjoyed for quite some time, and I was really excited to write a review on their products.
And, what makes them unique??….
“What makes our Nut Butters so special?
Taste. Simply put, they are amazingly delicious.
Unique variety. In addition to our superior Almond Butter and Tahini, we offer unique varieties: Walnut Butter, Pecan Butter, Cashew Butter, and Macadamia/Cashew Butter. Our coconut products include the ever popular Coconut Butter and it’s related Cacao Bliss, as well as our Extra Virgin Pure Coconut Oil.
Fresh. We hand select only the finest new harvest nuts, seeds and coconut for our butters. Our almonds and walnuts are the best California has to offer.
Quality. All of our nut and seed butters are hand crafted in small batches in Oakland, CA with careful attention to detail using strict food safety protocols.
Organic. We only use 100% certified organic nuts, seeds, and coconut meat which means no toxic pesticides, chemicals, or genetically modified organisms. (Certified by QAI)
Pure. We don’t add any extra ingredients. No oil, sugar, preservatives or artificial flavors – Nothing. Which means that all you get is the clean, fresh taste of nuts and seeds the way nature intended.
Raw. Our raw products are made into puree with a temperature controlled process.
This means that all of the enzymes, proteins and vitamins are intact, in their natural state and fully utilized by the body.
Powerful – Forget caffeine! Packed with energy-laden nutrients, our nut butters are a great source of sustained energy. Healthy – Nuts and seeds in the form that we make them – totally raw and organic and processed into butter (purée) – are among the most basic and healthy foods one can eat on the planet, offering to the consumer:
- Non-animal proteins and enzymes
- Vitamins and Minerals
- Essential fatty-acids (including Omega-3, of which Walnut butter has the most)
- Fiber in all products more readily digestible than whole nuts…making them truly whole foods.
- Certified Kosher (KSA)
Made in a facility that processes tree nuts, but does not process any peanuts, gluten, dairy or soy.”
Basically, they produce high quality nut butters. What’s better than that?
And, they taste heavenly.
My personal favorite is their Raw Cashew Butter.
It’s like frosting.
I love it on my greek yogurt. Or by the spoonful. Or, for dessert. Basically all the time.
You can’t see the cashew butter because it’s buried by cinnamon and more cashews.
Raw Walnut Butter and Raw Coconut Butter = A dream.
Artisana also has lots of squeezable on-the-go packets. My fav? Chocolate of course.
Artisana is not only a great company, but they provide the highest quality. So, make sure you check them out! You can order their products online here: Artisana. Thanks for providing health nuts like me with delicious raw butters!
