Product Information

Store Landish Superfood Protein Bars in a cool place, below 20℃. For optimal freshness, keep them in the fridge.

Yes, all Landish products are gluten free

Landish Superfood Protein Bars made with spirulina are soy free.
Landish Superfood Protein Powders are not made with soy but they are manufactured in a facility that also processes soy.  

All Landish products made with cricket powder may contain soy because crickets are fed a plant-based diet that includes soy.

9 months.

Landish products are not certified organic. However, some of our ingredients are organic. Examples include spirulina, reishi mushroom, pumpkin seed protein, and sunflower seed protein.

Fats, especially polyunsaturated fats, are an essential part of a healthy diet. They provide steady, long lasting, low-glycemic energy and are critical to metabolic processes. We opted to reduce sugar dramatically relative to leading bars on the market and opt for healthy fats instead, mostly from seeds.

We opted to reduce sugar dramatically relative to leading products on the market and opt for healthy fats instead, mostly from seeds.

Let’s break this down because these two diets are actually very different.


A low-carb diet is one in which carbs are restricted, but not to the extent that this results in a state of ketosis in which the body consumes primarily fat as a source of energy. A keto diet is supposed to result in a state of ketosis. Despite the word “keto” being thrown around a lot, the low-carb diet is much more popular than the true keto diet because the latter is extremely challenging for most people and definitely not right for everyone.

Let’s talk about the low-carb diet first.

Landish Superfood Protein Powders have 1 g net carb, 15-16 g protein, and 3-4 g fat per 30 g serving, so they are absolutely well suited to the low-carb diet.

Landish Superfood Protein Bars contain 15-17 g net carb, 10 g protein, and 11-13 g fat per 50 g bar, so they can fit within a low-carb diet, certainly much better than mainstream protein bars and energy bars.

Now for the true keto diet.

If you’re truly committed to maintaining a keto diet, less than 5% of your calorie intake should come from carbs. Just take your total daily calorie intake, divide that by 20 to get your total allowed calories from carbs, and then divide that number by 4 to get your total allowed grams of net carbs (since there are 4 calories per gram of carb). Remember to subtract fibre from total carbs to get net (absorbable) carbs. If you’re on a 2,500 calorie/day diet then your allowable net carb intake would be 31.25 g.    

Landish Superfood Protein Powders have 1 g net carb, 15-16 g protein, and 3-4 g fat per 30 g serving, so they are absolutely well suited to the keto diet. Landish powders are actually better suited to the keto diet compared to traditional protein powders because they are only around 50% protein and contain some fat. On a keto diet, you have to make sure you’re not ingesting excessive amounts of protein, as excess protein is converted to glucose, which can prevent you from entering or kick you out of ketosis.


Landish Superfood Protein Bars contain 15-17 g net carb, 10 g protein, and 11-13 g fat per 50 g bar, so they can fit within keto diet, certainly much better than mainstream protein bars and energy bars, but you would have to make sure that you’re severely restricting carbs elsewhere. Using the example above, after consuming a Landish bar, you would have 14.25-16.25 g of carbs left to consume before exceeding the recommended daily carb limit.

P.S.

Some of us at Landish have tried the keto diet and decided that it was not right for us—we’ve settled into what we call a “carb-conscious” diet and we now seek macronutrient balanceand micronutrient densityfirst and foremost. It’s what allows us to feel our best and avoid any negative symptoms. This does involve seeking lower-carb options because mainstream products contain a LOT of carbs. Landish bars and powders were designed for this lower carb, macronutrient balanced and micronutrient dense diet we figured out is the not-so-complicated secret for us. The other discovery for us: diets don’t work. Only lifestyle changes and habit formation work—the things you will be able to do for the rest of your life. Keto or not, it’s eating with intention that makes the difference in the end.

Ingredient Information

Cricket powder is quite neutral tasting—a little earthy. We find it combines especially well with chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon, hence our two protein bar and protein powder recipes.

Cricket powder is quite neutral tasting—a little earthy. We find it combines especially well with chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon, hence our two protein bar and protein powder recipes.

The crickets are farmed and processed into powder in Ontario, Canada.

Landish organic spirulina comes from China. It’s the highest quality spirulina in the world, some of the only available organic spirulina in the world, and is produced in a modern facility in the desert, under almost permanent sunshine, far from any industry. Quality control is extremely strict. The spirulina is tested for heavy metals and other contaminants and exceeds all regulatory requirements in Canada and the US.

Yes! They’re 100% safe. Humans have been eating crickets for millenia, and now that crickets are farmed specifically for human consumption in Canada, all Canadian laws and regulations applicable to animal rearing and meat processing apply to cricket farming and processing. Compared to the meat-processing industry, cricket processing is much cleaner. They’re simply roasted and ground – much like how your favourite ground coffee is prepared. The plant-based feed for the crickets is also sourced from local farms.

No, crickets would not technically fit within a vegan or vegetarian diet. Vegan diets are usually defined as excluding all animal products, and vegetarian diets typically exclude all meat (defined as red meat, poultry, seafood, and the flesh of any other animal). Since crickets (insects) are animals, anyone following these definitions of veganism or vegetarianism would not eat them.

However, that doesn’t mean vegans or vegetarians necessarily should avoid eating crickets. Depending on the reasons for their dietary restrictions, some people might find crickets are actually a perfect fit for their ethical-consumption goals.

For instance, some people practice variations on vegetarianism, such as lacto-ovo-vegetarians (who eat eggs and dairy products) and pescatarians (who eat fish). These less stringent vegetarians might likewise make an exception for insects.

Many of our customers who eat our cricket-based products are otherwise vegetarian, and they make this exception because they find that cricket powder “checks all their boxes” in terms of ethical sourcing, sustainability, and nutrition.

Marine Collagen Booster FAQ

Collagen is the principal protein found in skin, bones, cartilage and the body’s connective tissues. Marine collagen is made from the scales of fish. Hydrolyzed marine collagen is a marine collagen that has undergone hydrolysis, a clean, enzymatic process that involves breaking the collagen down to more digestible collagen peptides (groups of amino acids) for maximum absorption, bioavailability and effectiveness.

Landish marine collagen is produced in Nova Scotia, Canada, made from wild caught deep sea fish from Canadian and North Atlantic waters.

Yes, Landish marine collagen is 100% safe. Collagen is widely consumed without side effects.

Approvals
Collagen peptides have:

Approval from Health Canada

Approval from the World Health Organization

Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS) status from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

Cleanliness & Purity
Every batch of Landish marine collagen goes through a clean purification process and is then thoroughly lab tested to ensure safety and the absence of any harmful contaminants such as pathogens or heavy metals. This collagen does not even hit the testing threshold of 0.02 parts per million (ppm) of mercury (i.e. there is not a meaningful or detectable amount of mercury in it). This is at least 25x below the Canadian health standard of 0.5 ppm.

Also, because Landish marine collagen is sourced from wild fish, there is no possibility of it being exposed to any hormones, antibiotics or any bovine, avian, or porcine diseases.

Finally, because this collagen is sourced from the North Atlantic and not the Pacific, you don’t need to worry about radiation caused by the Fukushima nuclear disaster of 2011.

When sourcing this product, its safety and purity was our top priority and it continues to be. We and thousands of our customers consume this collagen with not a single worry!

There is 7.5 g of collagen per 8.5 g serving of Marine Collagen Booster

Adult women and men can benefit from consuming collagen. Collagen is an essential protein for our skin, cartilage, and other tissues in the body whose health and integrity can be impaired by a variety of factors.

You can mix our collagen into hot or cold drinks, or incorporate it into any food of your choice.

For optimal efficiency, it is recommended to consume our marine collagen with vitamin C in a smoothie, juice, tea, yogurt with fruits, soup, or lemon water. Consuming our marine collagen on an empty stomach can help achieve maximum absorption.

We recommend taking 2 tablespoons (8.5 g) of Landish Marine Booster daily (i.e. 7.5 g of collagen). Consuming more collagen than this is not harmful. Generally, people start to experience results after approximately 4-8 weeks.

Landish marine collagen is odourless and has an almost imperceptible taste. Though it is sourced from fish, our marine collagen is a purified protein so it’s normal that it would not have any fishy taste or smell. 

Because marine collagen is made from fish, we advise you not to consume this product if you are allergic to fish. 

No, Landish marine collagen contains no traces of shellfish.

Yes, Landish products were made to be consumed together! We encourage you to add your marine collagen to our lattes and shakes.

Though we have many customers taking prescription medication and our marine collagen without any issue, we always recommend that you speak to a health practitioner first if you have any concerns about consuming marine collagen while on medication.

We advise that you consult a doctor prior to consuming our marine collagen if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
Many women find there to be no concerns with postpartum consumption of marine collagen and experience its many benefits, including improved hydration, firmness and elasticity of skin and thicker hair and nails. Marine collagen, which is primarily type I collagen, is considered to be the best for these purposes.

Landish marine collagen is sustainable in that it’s made from a by-product (fish skins), preventing food waste and not requiring any additional fishing.

Actually, studies* show that high levels of marine collagen peptides are found in the bloodstream following ingestion, meaning that they resist digestion and are efficiently absorbed from the digestive tract. This allows them to be delivered to target locations in the body like skin and cartilage.

There have been some blogs written about this, most of them ill-informed. Research shows that collagen only begins to be broken down or "denature" at 150°C. That's 50°C above the boiling temperature of water! People drink coffee and other hot beverages at 70-85°C (90°C max.), so in practical everyday terms you don’t need to worry about heat affecting your collagen.

5 Mushroom Latte and Hot Chocolate FAQ

Yes, because our hot chocolate and chai latte mixes are food-grade products (not supplements) with lower concentrations of mushrooms, they are safe for kids. Our holistic nutritionist-partner Cat Binette R.H.N, recommends these products for the whole family. Do however consider any allergies before serving to children.

Consuming one of our 5 mushroom mixes daily is totally great if it fits your routine, otherwise occasional is good too. One of us consumes it daily instead of coffee in the morning, the others every 2-3 days in the afternoon. This is what we'd call a food-grade product that is super delicious and fills you up, but with the added benefits of certain compounds like fungal beta glucans, triterpene antioxidants and others found in 5 mushrooms (more on that here) as opposed to a supplement (e.g. in capsule form) with a daily recommended dose. Our philosophy is really based on nutritional diversity and enjoyment, as opposed to strict supplement routines.

Though we always recommend that you consult a health practitioner if you have any doubts about consuming any product that may interfere with medication, our hot chocolate and chai latte mixes are considered food-grade products (not supplements) with lower concentrations of mushrooms.

Actually the answer is that they are both! The beneficial compounds in the mushrooms, such as triterpenoid antioxidants, are “extracted” through a water boiling process called decoction and then mixed back in with the mushroom polysaccharide fibres from which they have been separated (known as fungal beta glucans).

This provides all the benefits of the extracted compounds and the beta glucans with maximum bioavailability. If you simply chewed on these mushrooms (which is not something we recommend!) your body would not be able to effectively separate and absorb the beneficial compounds - this is why the extraction process is fundamental. If you don’t buy mushrooms that have been extracted, you are quite frankly wasting your money!

Not at all. In fact, the mushrooms have already been “extracted” through an essential water boiling process called decoction, which maximizes the bioavailability of their beneficial compounds. Additional heating does not reduce their potency.

Yes, all Landish mushrooms are organic.

Yes, our 5 Mushroom Hot Chocolate and Chai Latte mixes are gluten free, made in a gluten free facility.

Spirulina Nutritional Shake

Spirulina is a spiral-shaped fresh-water blue-green microalgae that derives its energy from the sun and packs an incredible amount of complete protein, micronutrients and antioxidants. Spirulina has been consumed by humans thousands of years and is now cultivated as a sustainable superfood.

Landish spirulina is produced in California according to the state's world renowned food safety and environmental standards. There are currently no producers of commercially available spirulina powder in Canada.

Anyone can benefit from consuming spirulina. Its high concentration in iron, magnesium, B vitamins, antioxidants, and essential amino acids (all 9) make it an energizing, powerhouse health food.

One 15 g serving of our Spirulina Nutritional Shake contains 4 g of premium California-grown spirulina.

We recommend taking 1 serving (2 tbsp = 15 g) of our Spirulina Nutritional Shake per day based on a 4 g spirulina serving. 

The spirulina used in Landish products is completely safe. It’s produced according to California’s extremely strict health standards and every batch of it is thoroughly lab tested to guarantee the highest possible level of purity.

Yes! Spirulina can be an excellent source of nutrition for kids. For you and your kids, it’s important that spirulina be sourced from a safe, reputable source like Landish’s California-grown spirulina, which is subject to extremely strict state-wide health standards and an extensive quality control process involving each and every batch being thoroughly lab tested.

The recommended daily intake of spirulina for kids will be lower than it is for adults, with the exact amount depending on age and weight. We recommend consulting a health practitioner before serving spirulina to kids. That said, the nutrition and health benefits certainly make it worth considering adding spirulina to children’s diets. 

Yes! Landish’s Spirulina Nutritional Shake contains 0 g net carbs, so it’s definitely keto-friendly. It can enhance a keto diet with its remarkable micronutrient and antioxidant profile.

Absolutely, our Spirulina Nutritional Shake is 100% plant-based. It’s also packed with key nutrients like complete protein with all 9 essential amino acids, iron, magnesium, and B vitamins.

If you’re taking prescription medication, we recommend consulting a health practitioner before consuming this spirulina-based product if you have any concerns.

We recommend storing this powder in a cool and dry place.

Yes, unfortunately the vitamin and antioxidant content of spirulina will be reduced if heated to cooking temperatures, though its mineral content (iron, magnesium, etc.) would remain intact.

Yes, our Spirulina Nutritional Shake is gluten free, made in a gluten free facility.

Yes, our Spirulina Nutritional Shake is peanut free, made in a peanut free facility.

Yes, our Spirulina Nutritional Shake is nut free, made in a nut free facility (with the exception of coconut, not considered to be a tree nut in Canada).

Our Spirulina Nutritional Shake is not made with soy, but is made in a facility that also processes soy ingredients, so we cannot guarantee that it does not contain any traces of soy.

Our Spirulina Nutritional Shake is not made with any dairy ingredients, but is made in a facility that also processes whey protein, a dairy ingredient, so we cannot guarantee that they don’t not contain any traces of milk allergen.

Our Spirulina Nutritional Shake is not made with any egg, but is made in a facility that also processes egg white protein, so we cannot guarantee that they don’t contain any traces of egg.

The short answer is that this spirulina is higher quality, cleaner and safer than spirulina labelled as “organic”—and it’s North America grown. Here are the facts:

1. Landish’s California-grown spirulina was labelled as USDA Organic until 2005. Still now it is organic in all regards (e.g. free of pesticides and herbicides and Non-GMO Project Verified) except one: its use of a mined, water-soluble form of natural nitrogen, a key nutrient for plants and microalgae.

2. In 2005, the USDA removed nitrogen fertilizers (used in virtually all conventional farming) from its list of organic-approved fertilizers in order to protect waterways from nitrogen runoff, which can cause excess algae growth, disrupting ecosystems

3. The USDA brought in a new standard, allowing the use of organic matter like compost, manures, cover crops, fish meal, feather meal, blood meal, bone meal, etc. as sources of nitrogen in organic farming

4. Landish’s spirulina-growing partner made the highly informed decision not to switch to the new organic sources of nitrogen fertilizer for three key reasons:

  a. The significant potential for very high bacterial levels and heavy metals in spirulina under the new standard, which would compromise product safety

 b. The company’s use of pond liners and closed loop water systems in their microalgae farming which had already eliminated any risk of nitrogen runoff (unlike in conventional crop farming)

 c. The continued ability to claim that this spirulina is animal-free (unlike spirulina produced under the new standard)

5. “USDA Organic” spirulina is produced in China and India. This is not a problem in and of itself, but in the case of spirulina, California-grown is the best.

This spirulina is the cleanest, the safest, of the highest quality, and the most efficiently grown in the world:: that is why we chose to use it in Landish products.
