Are you looking for a tasty RAW meal on the go?

On a recent trip to Canada I discovered The Raw meal by garden of life and was very pleasantly surprised. We were visiting Ottawa for the first time and as we didn’t know the city it can make it hard to get high quality organics foods. It’s important for me to be able to maintain my health where ever I am and however busy I am so when I came across a local health food shop the stocked the Garden of Life RAW Meal I figured it would be worth a try. I found it easy to mix, very tasty and filling after training. And of course, it’s sourced from organically grown plants.

    Do you know where they now source their organic ingredients from . I have read on the internet that Garden of Life have used Brown Rice Powder from China in the past and we all know that is a big no no! Have they now sorted out this issue ?

      Hi Nina

      Thank you very much for your comment and question.

      We contacted Garden of life to make sure we had up to date information on ingredients and this is what they came back with:

      Thank you for your email and interest in Garden of Life’s products. Garden of Life uses the highest quality ingredients from around the world to manufacture our supplements depending on where we can obtain the cleanest source. Based on the large amount of ingredients that we used in the products it is very difficult to specify which country each ingredient was grown. This is also difficult because for one batch the ingredient may be obtained from one country but for another batch it is obtained from another country based on availably and most importantly that our specify requirements for that ingredient are met.

      Most of the ingredients used in our products are sourced in the USA however at times it is possible to source an Organic Ingredient from other countries including China. Please feel assured that we test our products for heavy metals, microbial growth and pathogenic species such as E. coli and Salmonella, and our suppliers are required to provide us with herbicide, insecticide/pesticide free material.

      For more information on the sourcing of our ingredients please click on the following link;

      I can certainly see the complexity of managing the manufacture of products of this quality and to maintain a consistent supply. It makes sense to me that with the entire currant testing in place and with the focus on purchasing the cleanest ingredients Garden of life are able to offer constantly high quality and contaminate free products.
      I very much hope this is of help and answers your questions.

      In health and happiness

      Hi Johanna
      Thank you for your comment,
      We have tried to incorporate the ingredients listings on each product page in the photographs of the product. In most cases there will be a photo of the full ingredients as they are shown on the side of the product.
      We do however agree that we can do better, and in time, would like to include full listings, where needed, in the 'more information' tab under each product.
      Thank you for your feedback; it’s genuinely very helpful to understand better the problems people are having with the site so that we can work to make it better.
      In health
