Our Story – The Epic Seed – Greek Yogurt + Chia


Hello. We’re
The Epic Seed, and here’s how it all started.

When we started sprinkling chia seeds on our breakfast every morning, we never realized just how good it would taste and make us feel. In less than a week, we were adding this epic seed to everything. A bowl of yogurt, fresh fruit, and chia became our favorite combo, and we set out to create the healthiest possible variation while keeping this perfect mix unwaveringly delicious!

Our journey to create a health snack of epic proportions was simple and organic. We started with the yogurt. We found small family-owned farms in Chenango County, New York with non-GMO and rbGH free milk. We made sure the cows on these farms had names — not numbers — and were strictly grass fed. But we didn’t stop there! We’d heard enough about the inhumane practices at mega milk manufacturers and how cows were kept in tiny pens — we wanted NOTHING to do with them. We made sure all of our milk came from pasture-raised cows that grazed in fields, not pens!

With A LOT of high quality milk, we set out to make a supremely thick, protein-packed Greek Yogurt by straining off nearly all of the liquid and some of the whey. Next, we looked for all-natural, domestic fruit. We found whole, wild blueberries from Oregon, Southern California-grown strawberries, Washington and Oregon-raised blackberries, and sweet peaches from Central California.

Then came the most important part, finding whole, nutrient-packed chia seeds. We knew the importance of fiber in the morning, but, as much as we loved yogurt for breakfast, we could never find it with this vital nutrient. We were thrilled when we learned that one small serving of chia seeds packed more fiber than an apple! We also found out that producers were less likely to mix different seeds with white chia than black because they would stand out more. Sourcing exclusively white chia became a MUST to making our breakfast as pure and epic as possible!

When we added all of these ingredients together we had a powerhouse of live and active probiotic cultures, omega-3s, antioxidants, potassium, magnesium, and iron, but we didn’t stop there! We spent months experimenting with different variations until The Epic Seed was born: an optimal balance of Protein, Fiber and Healthy Fat for just 150 calories!   In one convenient cup, we strive to give you the ultimate breakfast, the alpha snack, and a supreme way start your day that’s as delicious as it is healthy! We think that’s pretty EPIC.

I’ve seen these before, but what do these things mean?

Gluten is a protein composite found in wheat (including kamut and spelt), barley, rye and triticale. We’re aware of the allergies and food sensitivities related to this protein composite. The Epic Seed is 100% gluten free, so you can feel EPIC after every cup!

According to the USDA, Grass-fed cows have a diet that comes solely from forage containing grass, forbs, browse, or cereal grain crops in the vegetative state. These animals cannot be fed grain or grain byproducts. They also must have ongoing access to pasture during the growing season. We source all of our milk exclusively from family-owned farms in Chenango County, New York where the cows are strictly grass fed and have names, not numbers! Yes, these cows Got Milk but they also got real food, and we’re pretty happy about that.

GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are plants or animals created through genetic engineering in which DNA from different species is joined. The results are unstable combinations of plant, animal, viral and bacterial genes that are not found or produced in nature. While many companies don’t mind serving up genetically modified organisms, we prefer to give you, well, REAL food…

Probiotics are living organisms such as bacteria and yeast that are believed to be beneficial to our health. Bacteria gets a bad rap, but our digestive systems are naturally teeming with more than 500 different types of it! These live and active cultures are vital to helping us digest food and maintain healthy guts. Luckily for us, our greek yogurt is full of this supremely healthy bacteria — and we say YES, not yuck to that!

rbGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone) is a genetically engineered hormone that some U.S. dairy farms inject into their cows to increase milk production. Most of these products are not labeled as containing the hormone. In cows treated with rbGH, significant health problems are known to develop. We’d really rather not re-visit puberty, so we kick these nasty hormones to the curb with entirely rbGH and hormone-free milk!
