nutpods is a deliciously wholesome, dairy-free creamer made from heart healthy almonds and MCT-rich coconuts with a rich and creamy balanced taste.

We believe that there should be an alternative option for the discerning and informed dairy-free coffee creamer user. Unfortunately, most traditional non-dairy and even natural dairy-free coffee creamers can contain many undesirable and artificial ingredients.  Natural creamers can be thin and watery; not rich and creamy. Unlike the existing options, nutpods is free from the following so you can be free to indulge:
-Soy
-Sodium Caseinate (a milk protein)
-Carrageenan
-Artificial flavors, colors and preservatives
-Hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils

 For a list of ingredients, please click on the photo of each flavor.

 

Keep Calm and ENJOY NUTPODS Poster

We did it!

We started our little company with a Kickstarter campaign in October 2013 (www.kickstarter.com Project Name: nutpods) to bring our much anticipated products to the commercial market. Our goal was to raise $30K to release our first delectable flavor, Unsweetened Original. Well, thanks to the generosity of 510 backers, WE DID IT! We were able to actually surpass our goal by $32,164!  The money raised will go towards converting Madeline's kitchen formula into a full-blown commercial formulation.  Funds will also be used on packaging, production and distribution costs.

Thanks to you, our supporters, we will soon be able to transform nutpods into a bona fide commercial production and make our wholesome and deliciously dairy-free creamy pods available to health-conscious coffee and tea lovers everywhere.

Thank you for your support in giving us the privilege to finally bring a more natural and wholesome option to the market!

The movement away from artificial this and artificial that...

This was a big week in the movement toward more natural food!

Kraft announced it will remove artificial dyes #5 and #6  from three macaroni and cheese varieties with kid-friendly shapes. Success! This was the result of Vani Hari (aka the Food Babe)'s and Lisa Leake's  ("100 days of Food" blog) perseverence and efforts in creating an on-line petition on change.org and delivered over 270,000 signed petitions to the Kraft Headquarters. Did you know that Kraft has a different formulation in Europe due to Europe's tighter restrictions on food dyes?

And lastly, the FDA is finally moving to phase out artificial trans fats. More success! Oh, and where can you find transfats? In partially hydrogenated oils, like the kind used in non-dairy creamer. Is this really what you want in your coffee or tea?
