Not until recently have the public become aware of the concept that what we consume is very likely the root cause of many modern health concerns. We are leading the charge as society begins to take a much needed closer look at its palate. Food and drink is your fuel; so should you not take care in what you consume? Eating better is a simple and delicious way to improve quality of life. We exist to help people transition from not-so-good-for-you foods to really-good-for-you foods, without any loss in taste.

Vital wheat gluten is made by extracting all of the gluten in wheat and leaving behind the starch. It is sold as a powder that is available in many health food and specialty food grocers, as well as at certain high-end supermarkets. Gluten is made into a non-animal protein substitute that is popular among vegans and vegetarians, as well as in many Asian cuisines. It can have a spongy or firmer texture, when it is called seitan, and can be seasoned to take on flavors, including mimicking meats such as chicken, duck or beef.
