After weeks of Passover recipes, decor and more, I will catch up on all the goodies so many of you are sharing with me.
Namaste Foods is a women-owned and family-operated maker of exceptionally tasty food that is better for you than the run-of-the mill choices on most grocery store shelves. They have been in business since 2000, making food that everyone in your family can enjoy, including those with food allergies.
Many people ask why they chose Namaste as the company name. The word “Namaste” (pronounced “Naa-Maa-Stay”) is an ancient Sanskrit word associated with yoga, meditation and appreciation of oneself. “The Spirit within me honors and respects the Spirit within you.”
The company has over 55 kosher products, featuring foods in the following categories:
Baking Mixes and Flour
Grab ‘n Go Soup Cups
Organic Baking Mixes
Organic Cake Cups
Scratch Baking Ingredients
Seasoned Coating Mixes
The company approach has always been very “grassroots” in nature when producing products. Some of the ways they do it is by making sure the manufacturing facility is free from the Top Eight allergens, making it the safest environment for people challenged by food allergies and sensitivities. It is also certified Gluten Free, Kosher and USDA Organic.
Namaste Foods supports many charities to bring awareness of allergies internationally. One of charities is Jewish World Watch. It educates people about genocide and other man-made human rights disasters in the world. Since its inception in 2004, JWW has focused its educational efforts on the genocide in Darfur, Sudan.

Some Flips health-ify recipes (think pizza quiche that tastes just like a real slice of pizza); other Flips transform taste, giving you ultimate freedom to be creative, just like a real chef.
