Walnuts are the only nut – and one of the few foods – that provide an excellent source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), the plant-based omega-3 fatty acid with 2.5 grams in a one ounce serving. For more than 25 years, the California Walnut Commission has supported scientific research through more than 100 publications on the consumption of walnuts and outcomes in the areas of heart health, healthy aging (cognitive health and physical function), cancer prevention, diabetes and metabolic syndrome, weight, the Mediterranean diet and male reproductive health.

Our vision is to introduce the world to the benefits of the Greek Mediterranean diet by combining Greek products based on olive oil with our penchant for tradition and simplicity.
Gaea is much more than elegantly-packaged wholesome foods and fine ingredients. It is a genuine philosophy of life, with a deep appreciation of nature. We’ve always favored non-aggressive harvesting over large volumes and high yields. Although we invest heavily in research and employ cutting-edge technology, we never stray too much from time-honored practices.

We are the first non-GMO and carbon neutral olive oil worldwide and hope to become international ambassadors of top-quality olive oil products and a better, healthier, more fulfilling way of eating—and living.

Did you know that sun dried tomatoes pack more nutrition per ounce than fresh tomatoes? Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomatoes naturally have 12 times more lycopene than fresh tomatoes. Many studies, including those published in Cancer Epidemiology, The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, The Journal of Nutrition, Biomarkers & Prevention, and more show that lycopene helps to improve immune function, reduce the risk of heart disease, certain cancer, diabetes, cataracts, asthma, and even offer protection from UV rays.
