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.

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!

What is Green Grass Foods?

When I was picking out a name for my company, I wanted something to resonate with the way that food USED to be.  When I was growing up, I remember riding my bicycle through our neighborhood in the suburbs of Washington state.  There were plenty of green spaces where wild blackberries grew; and if you were lucky or knew where to look, salmonberries.  I can still recall the sweetness from those plump berries and my fingers being stained from their juices.  We had apple trees in our backyard and we could pluck them, with their fragrant subtle scent, and stretch out on the grass where we would alternate between searching for that elusive four-leaf clover, identifying shapes in the clouds, or rolling down the hill.  From those wonderful memories, Green Grass Foods, Inc. was born.

How times have changed.  Between seeing the industrial evolution in our food systems,  GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms for our Jimmy Fallon fans), partially hydrogenated oils which we know are a a source of transfats (coffee creamers are a common source), to rBST in our dairy cows, and the levels of pesticides that are measured in the "Dirty Dozen" of produce (from Environmental Working Group), I was becoming increasingly concerned about the direction we were headed.  As a nation, we are good at creating more efficient systems of growing and producing food but at what cost to our environment, the animals, and our own bodies?  I wanted to change that and sometimes you have to jump in to be part of the answer. 

I started Green Grass Foods with our flagship brand, nutpods because I wanted to bring to market a wholesome, delicious tasting option that was lacking in the marketplace so consumers can create a perfect cup of coffee without compromise.  I've heard from many of you that there ARE other options out there, but for various reasons, they don't work for you.  It's too sweet. It's too thin. It's not creamy enough. But as you can see from our company brand, the door is open for us to make an impact in other areas of the food industry.  And beyond our product, we really have an opportunity as a company to make a difference with corporate stewardship programs and establishing a portfolio of partners and causes we support such as 1% for the Planet and Water.org. Sometimes you have to be the change that you want to see.

Thanks for helping us along our way.
