Kashi – Real Nutrition Foods, Snacks, Powders & Bars?



Kashi Review – Is It Right For You?

Just over thirty years ago the founders of Kashi decided that it was time to acknowledge that the foods that we put into our bodies could change our bodies, minds and health.

The Seven Whole Grain Mission

With that in mind they set out on the mission to create a food line that would generate not just a difference in our bodies but in the world around us. This line of thinking took them to the seven whole grains, the research on these grains showed that their combination not only allowed for advanced nutrition and protein but also allowed for a minimal impact on the planet.

This was 1984 and the start of the “Seven Grain Sesame Blend” that Kashi is originally known for. Now the company has gone beyond the original Seven Grains but the mission has not wavered or changed. Maximum health impact with minimal planet impact is still the goal in every one of Kashi’s Food lines. All of them are filled with vitamins, protein, fibers, minerals and phytonutrients. As well as being specifically chosen for their textures, taste as well as nutritional value making their products exceptionally good.

Non-GMO Project – Verified

When those of us health conscious individuals think of the Genetically Modified Organisms the hair on the back of our necks stand up. Well the founders of Kashi had the same reaction to this unnatural food source. So in February 2012 they set out their Non-GMO Project, Verified by introducing their first seven cereals that were officially non-GMO Project Verified. In April of the that same year they committed to utilizing only organic products and overtime removing all GMOs from their food lines. In February 2014 they announced, a year ahead of the estimated time, that all of their Go Lean Cereal line was Non-GMO Project Verified. They have now announced that their entire food line will be Non-GMO Project Verified by the end of the 2016 calendar year.

Enjoy Some Real Food

Kashi truly believes that food can deliver not only nutrients but fill our bodies with love not only for the amazing foods provided by the nature around us but also love for ourselves. Whether you are being warmed by Oatmeal or enjoying the sharp sweet taste of a berry the idea behind the ingredients chosen is to slow you down and appreciate the taste, the environment that provided it and the people we share our food with. Kashi has a motto, “Because we believe eating better together is better for all” this motto is evident in each of their amazing products.

What is with that Name?

This name was specifically created by the founders for very specific reasons. The name Kashi is actually a “mash up” of two words that had simple but important meaning to the founders of this amazing company. The first word being Kashruth which literally translates to pure food or Kosher and the second word being a name, Kushi the name of the founder of the American macrobiotics. So the name for the founders of the company means healthy food that was created with real nutrition.

Interestingly as the years have pasted it has been discovered that word Kashi actually has specific meanings in other languages that are actually quite fitting. In Russian Kashi means porridge, in Japanese it means energy and in Chinese it means happy, all of which apply to this wholesome nutritious brand of food line. If you think Kashi is a funny name you should know they almost ended up with the name “Graino”.
