This protein powder comes from wild-grown, North American native black walnut trees. Unlike other proteins, black walnut is habitat-friendly — no agricultural land is used, since these trees aren’t “grown” like other crops. No fertilizer, no irrigation, no toxic chemical applications. Just wholesome, healthy, wild nature. Ripe black walnuts fall to the ground and are gathered by volunteer foragers — individuals and families — who bring these nuts to hulling stations around the midwest, where they’re paid by the pound for their harvest. Using a sophisticated, ultra-clean CO2 extraction, the nutmeats are turned into this exquisite, high-quality, fully-absorbable protein powder.
