Committed to a healthy, nutritious way of eating, our parents Andrew and Stefanie, along with son Alexander and his wife, professional chef Svitlana, started Food to Live in the kitchen of our home to meet the growing interest in delicious power foods for healthy diets. Alexander and Svitlana’s children, Katie and Robert, are now part of this growing, dedicated team.

High Nutrient Levels/Sensible Calorie Count

Nutrient to calorie ratio is a popular topic of talk shows, trusted physicians and best selling authors. The idea is successful and science based. Our Food to Live family has learned through research and personal experience that a diet that balances nutrients with calories leads to a high level of overall health.

A Diet to Build or a Diet to Destroy?

Weight management in America is a troubling and dangerous battle that many are losing, resulting in obesity levels that contribute to diabetes, high blood pressure, joint disease, heart disease and many other life threatening conditions. Fad diet books appear on bookshelves every day, urging us to “Eat the foods you love and lose weight!”

With the Food to Live variety of options, the “foods you love” will no longer be the ones that are slowly killing you. “At Food to Live, we offer fare that will quickly replace high fat, nutrition poor cravings in your diet,” says Svitlana. “These delicious alternatives, raw foods like savory cashews, fresh almonds and other wonderful nuts, dried fruits, seed sprouts and spices can revolutionize the way you cook and eat.

Certified Organic

In today’s health and environmentally conscious society there is great demand for organic food products. At Food To Live we care greatly about providing a healthier and different snacking alternative.

 

Our Facility has been certified by A Bee Organic. We have met all of the criteria set forth by the USDA to handle, package, and sell organic certified bakery products.

 

Many people ask what does organic really mean? Organic means that grains, fruits, nuts, seeds or other ingredients are grown without the use of any pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation.

 

The USDA National Organic Program (NOP) defines organic as follows:

 

Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled “organic,” a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, too.

 

There is often a question as to why organic food tends to be more expensive than non-organic food? Organic foods are processed in a different and more regulated way than non-organic foods. This causes the production cost to be a little higher. Also, organic farmers do not receive federal subsidies like conventional farmers. Therefore, the higher cost of organic products represents a more true cost of growing. Organically grown products are much more labor intensive since there are no chemicals used to aid in growing and prevent insects from ruining crops. The organic methods of growing require much more management than conventional farming.

 

Becoming certified organic is not an easy task. Our facility had to pass many different types of inspections. Strict and accurate monitoring of all of the organic products is essential in maintaining our certification. We must keep current records of all received and shipped organic merchandise. In addition, special packaging is used specifically for our organic products to ensure no cross contamination with non-organic products.

 

You can be assured that Food To Live will always strive and continue to bring your family the highest quality and best tasting organic products available. We are always in search of new and exciting organic products to add to our line and welcome your suggestions. Our organic certification is your assurance that our organic products have been handled according to the strictest procedures available.
