Germination...The key to unlocking enhanced germination


Mother Nature didn't "create" nutrition in a lab, and neither do we.


In a unique "Farm Gate to Plate" partnership, BioEssential Botanicals and Leicht Farms (Naturally Nutritious Foods) are redefining commercial germination and functional foods. Our collective goal is to grow, innovate, manufacture and market nutritious functional food products that have a positive impact on overall health and well-being. Our products sell under the brand names bioLIVETM and Omega MealsTM. Quality products begin with an intimate understanding of the ingredients and process. We have the highest seed testing standards of any company producing germinated products and understand the direct relationship between seed vitality (measured by germination rate) and finished product quality and stability.The partnership between the two companies is an ideal fit, because only the highest quality inputs are suitable for our rigid 99% germination stan dard. In 2009 our Omega MealsTM Sprouted Rice, Lentils and Flax received two LIVERight Awards - Best Entree and Best Vegetarian Item, judged from of field of 90 other national submissions. By providing in-depth nutritional information and products that are easily incorporated into any lifestyle, we make it possible for you to "take charge of your health".
