We make nutrient dense bars and protein powders with the worlds most powerful superfoods to help you “Fill the nutrient-void” in your hectic day.
As a big believer in the importance of healthy eating, Daniel had one frustration while working in banking in Montreal : the lack of nutrient-dense, low-sugar snacks that could keep him sustained and focused during some long work hours.
What’s wrong with protein or energy bars? One or often many of the following:
• Too much sugar
• Not nearly enough nutrient density
• Don’t satisfy your hunger
• Don’t taste good (sweet and fake or just chalky and bland)
• Offer no functional benefits
Daniel felt that more and more nutrition-focused consumers like him would continue to demand better.
This led to the kick-off of Crickstart in 2016, which became Landish in the spring of 2019. The Landish team made it its mission to create the most nutrient-dense natural bars EVER for people experiencing what they call “the daily grind”. How? By creating healthy, macronutrient-balanced plant-based bars and then boosting them with the world’s most powerful superfoods. Many brands use the word “superfoods” – Landish really means it.
For the same weight, crickets contain twice the protein in beef and chicken, over five times the vitamin B12 in salmon and they’re also full of iron, calcium, potassium and a prebiotic fibre called chitin beneficial to gut health.
Spirulina is a blue-green spiral-shaped microalgae and a form of a cyanobacteria. It’s extremely nutrient-rich with up to 70% protein, lots of beta-carotene, iron, calcium, phosphorus, iodine, chlorophyll, and phycocyanin, a powerful antioxidant. It also contains prebiotic polysaccharides responsible for probiotic growth.
Among other benefits, functional mushrooms such as reishi and turkey tail, contain high levels of beta-glucans, which are proven to contribute to probiotic growth, reduce LDL cholesterol levels, and boost the body’s immune system
And there’s more to come…
