Wild growing Moringa trees on the outskirts of Malawi is where we bring our Organic Moringa in from. We harvest through an out growers program which enables the region to generate work for the local people and in return, we receive the “raw-est”, purest Moringa Oleifera leaves that are retailed to our market in the form of powder for easy preparation and digestion.
Moringa has entered the health market with a “bang” but unfortunately not everyone reaps the rewards of this potent natural supplement. Most end users tend to not do proper research before purchasing and trust the general supplier due to standards which they presume everyone adheres to. There are a lot of suppliers on the market that includes the storks, sticks, bark and even roots, which lowers the grade and quality of the powder.
We go through extreme lengths to ensure that we only supply the best, most premium leaves in order to ensure optimum results. Moringa Leaf Powder is a super nutrient dense Plant Food that is jam-packed with vitamins, minerals, proteins, enzymes and anti oxidants. Just 30 grams contain 12.8 % (8.1g) Protein. Contains ALL the Amino Acids required for Human Protein Synthesis, its a rich Source of Vitamins C, B, B1, B2, B3 , has 16.5 times more Calcium than Milk, 10.5 times more Vitamin A than Carrots, 15 times more Potassium than Bananas, 25 times more Iron than Spinach. Moringa truly is the most nutritious of all leaf crops.
Our Baobab powder is wildly grown throughout the Northern province of and boasts with all its organic certifications. Obtaining an organic certified seal on any wild grown product is quite the tedious process as not only does the packaging facility have to be inspected and evaluated but every site from where the produce is obtained or grown in, the way its handled, transported and harvested.
The other obstacle is that of monetary nature. To have an organic certifier or agent commence with the process is not only very costly but also very long. Our desired vision is to have all our sites/ farms or harvesters certify our produce as organic but for now every effort is being made to achieve this hence maintaining the promise of organic ethics to every item in our range. Similar to the other products in our range, our Baobab powder supports the rural Northern suburbs where the community picks up the dried fruits (which falls to the ground when its ready to be harvested, the fruit turns to powder by itself which eliminates human intervention, making the powder one of the purest supplements available on the market).
These communities are incentivized by being educated on the fruit, how to handle the produce and are remunerated by the amount of fruit that they bring to our facilities during the week. Baobab powder is one of the strongest natural multivitamins as it is packed with vitamins and minerals. A 4.5g portion of baobab powder contains 12 calories and 2 grams of fiber. Baobab fruit is high in calcium, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, zinc, vitamin A, thiamin, B6 and bioflavonoids. It also acts as a prebiotic and is high in fiber. Baobab is said to have 10 times the fiber of apples, six times the vitamin C of oranges, two times the antioxidants of acai berries, two times the calcium of milk, four times the potassium of bananas, and five times the magnesium of avocados!
Our coconut oil is of premium grade certified organic quality. Grown in the Inhambane province of Mozambique the oil is extracted from virgin coconuts and pressed manually. No heat is involved in the extraction process from which we obtain our pure coconut oil, resulting in the beautiful cold pressed liquid which we have carefully selected as part of our organic lifestyle range. ORGANIC, COLDPRESSED, VIRGIN coconut oil is a substance which penetrates more epidermis layers than any natural oil, this offers an amazing moisturizer for both face and body (as well as hair due to the fact that the oil limits protein loss in the follicle).
It is widely known as the “fat that burns fat” so as an addition to any weight loss regime, this oil also offers an array of nutrients both as a health supplement and within cooking (as a frying/ flavouring/ seasoning oil). Our coconut butter contains no preservatives, sweeteners or additions to enhance flavour. This is the ideal spread for health conscious moms, kids and adults! For every coconut oil based product that is bought from Orthentic, we retain 2% of the retail price which is deposited into a fund and allocated toward the local people of Inhambane (which is currently the 7th poorest province in Mozambique). Our community outreach project serves to assist the “Negocios do Reino” fund, a charity organization that we are proud to be associated with.
Our Macadamia nut oil comes from the heart of Limpopo in the Soutpans Mountains where a 6 generation farming family has developed their business since 1905. Our Macadamia nut oil is the only addition in our range that is 100% natural but not organic. Even though EVERY step is taken by the farmers to grow the crop as organically as possibly, a level of pesticide is still used in order to deter a current insect problem which they have been battling with since 2000. However, NO chemicals are used to grow the nuts and our facilities are as organic as we are able to maintain it.
Our oil has NO PRESERVATIVES, its COLDPRESSED and completely RAW. This golden liquid is an incredible moisturizer and is a bit more “’user friendly” in its application process when compared to other natural liquid moisturizers. It is used as a hair and scalp treatment by many locals and has a completely natural fragrance. Cooking or seasoning with this oil is just another addition to one’s healthy ethos when it comes to adding to your pantry space. As far as nuts go – Macadamia nuts are considered king of all nuts due to the fact that they are higher in healthy monounsaturated fats than any seed or nut, even surpassing olive oil. We are proud to present our Macadamia oil, to the public - at the provided price, we believe we will be making quite the impact on the SA market.
MACADAMIA OIL IS VERY STABLE AND HAS LONG SHELF LIFE. The oil should be stored in a cool, dark place, and should be used within a year, although it can be kept in a refrigerator for up to two years. Please note that when stored below room temperature, the oil will become cloudy and deposits could form – this is normal and will disappear when the oil is heated.
Our honey farmer is probably one of the most interesting “powerful dreamers” that you’ll ever have the pleasure of meeting. Mokgadi Mabela is the passion behind our honey and produces and sources from a world of knowledge!! Hailing as a third generation bee keeper, she is a local female bee keeper that farms with her bee’s and personally ensures the quality control for our RAW honey.
To refer to honey as organic is almost an impossible quest as one can never be 100% sure where ones bees will gather their pollen from, but when it comes to our farmers, Mokgadi takes every step imaginable to maintain the hives in organic farmed fields and environments in order to uphold our promise. All our honey is bottled in biodegradable packaging, with no added preservatives or any filtered processes.
Our range consists of pure, raw, beautiful WILD honey, our honey infusions (which is raw honey that is infused with organic Lavender, Vanilla, Ginger and Cinnamon), and the last addition to our range is our ever popular “Hazel/Cacao/Honey spread” which is a spread which consists of creamed honey, crushed hazel nuts and raw cacao. This is a power packed treat on its own or as a condiment for pancakes, breads etc… We are so proud of our honey products that we have prioritized its expansions and promise to be delivering exciting additions VERY soon!
Something interesting: Some varieties of honey possess large amounts of friendly bacteria. This includes up to 6 species of lactobacilli and 4 species of bifidobacteria, which means it’s a powerful probiotic. This may explain many of the “mysterious therapeutic properties of honey.” It also regulates blood sugar, heals wounds and burns, is anti fungal andante bacterial, reduces throat irritations, enhances athletic abilities, prevents cancer and now with new studies completed can even prevent heart disease!
