When we think desert island, we think coconuts, but when we think desert-island foods, we think this comforting, slightly smoky sugar, gorgeously caramel-colored and just the right amount of sweet.

Why we love it
Beginning as tree sap, then boiled down to full-bodied, golden-brown perfection, the process behind this delicate coconut sugar is a lot like the process behind maple syrup, resulting in a rich taste like a toasted brown sugar. Fluffy and robust, with a tantalizing hint of caramel sweetness, it’s a sugar alternative that has a lower glycemic index than the table kind, and might just outshine the original.
How it does good
Inspired by the past, looking to the future
Wheat has been a staple since the early days of civilization, and stone-milling didn't come far behind, rising to prominence in Ancient Rome. While much of modern flour production uses high-temperature roller mills to speed up the manufacturing process, Bob’s Red Mill thinks, “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it,” committing to a slow, steady, stone-milling process that maintains flavor, texture, and nutrients. Their commitment to time-tested techniques makes them a household name in health food, but it doesn’t mean they’re stuck in the past. They’re breaking tradition with non-GMO ingredients; an expansive catalogue of gluten- and allergen-free, and vegan products; and a groundbreaking Employee Stock Ownership Plan. They also support social justice through the NAACP.
supporting key causesBob's Red Mill supports No Kid Hungry and Oregon Food Bank, donating funds and food to address food insecurity in their community and beyond. They've also founded multiple research centers, including The Moore Family Center for Whole Grain Foods, Nutrition and Preventive Health at Oregon State University, which work to study and enhance the health impacts of nutrition and food education.
