Spinach's secret weapon, lutein, makes it one of the best foods in the world to combat cataracts, as well as age related macular degeneration is the leading cause of preventable blindness in the elderly. Spinach is truly a wonderful food; one which should not be overlooked.

Q: Is your spinach powder organic?
A: Yes, the spinach powder is organic. When we produced it we did not have it added to our organic profile although the farmer is certified organic, my processor is certified organic and my company is certified organic. We are considering adding it to our organic profile for the next run. Each item we add costs money and we do not sell a whole lot of spinach powder so we will assess it for next batch. But meanwhile, you can enjoy the pesticide, chemical free spinach powder that was grown in lush soil and re-mineralized with Ocean Grown minerals during the growing cycle!
