FAQs – ENOF

FAQs

What is in ENOF, anyway?
ENOF is made of six highly nutritious vegetables: Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Spinach, Beets, Carrots and Broccoli. ENOF contains no GMOs, syrups, sugars or dyes.

Is ENOF allergen-friendly?
Yes, ENOF is allergen-friendly. ENOF does not contain any of the most common allergens (nuts of any kind, shellfish, dairy products, eggs, wheat or soy) and is not subject to cross-contamination in our manufacturing facillity either.  You can read through the full nutrition information here

Is ENOF gluten-free?
Yes! No gluten here, and no chance for cross-contamination either. ENOF is safe for those who have Celiac Disease or other gluten-related allergies.

Is ENOF organic?
The vegetables in ENOF are organic, however we have not yet obtained organic certification from the USDA.

Has the FDA approved ENOF?
The FDA does not technically "approve" food items - which is what ENOF is.  They do require that we provide full disclosure of the ingredients and also provide Nutrition Facts for the product, both of which can be viewed on our product pages here.

Is this really enough ENOF?
It’s hard to imagine that 3 shakes is enough, but it is. If you want to test it out, shake it into a 1/4 teaspoon measure. About one third (that’s right, just one third!) of this measure will be a serving for one person. This is the nutritional equivalent of about 2.5 servings of fresh vegetables. Most people should get about 5 servings a day, so they would use ENOF twice each day.

ENOF sounds almost too good to be true. How can that be?
WE KNOW. It’s really a small amount. This is possible due to new technology that allows for almost all of the bulk to be removed from the ingredients, leaving only the good stuff. Remember how you felt when you got your first cell phone? It was a breakthrough. ENOF is a breakthrough too. See the science behind it here.

How is ENOF made? Do the vegetables lose nutritional value during processing? 
ENOF is made through an innovative four-step process that, at its core, involves freeze-drying organic vegetables and then grinding them into powder form. We designed this process to ensure that all of the nutritional value of the vegetables is preserved – with ENOF, you get the full nutritional benefit of raw vegetables in a form that’s simple and healthy for your entire family. Learn the science behind our process here.

Is ENOF safe to use for my kids?
ENOF is safe to use for any age (although we generally do not suggest using ENOF until 12 months old) as long as you have confirmed that your child does not have any food-based allergies to the ingredients in ENOF.  We recommend using only one serving of ENOF per day for children 5 years old and younger, and two servings per day for ages 6+.

What is the shelf life of ENOF?
ENOF has a two year shelf life, but even after two years the product is still safe to use.  If you use ENOF more than two years from the time you received it we cannot guarantee that the nutritional value of the product will be as indicated on the Nutrition Facts part of the label. 

Can I cook with ENOF without damaging the nutrients?
Absolutely! You can put ENOF into recipes and (within reason) bake, boil, broil, grill, microwave, or freeze without impacting the nutrition provided by ENOF. We recommend the following:

  • Baking – 350F for no more than 45 minutes
  • Boiling – Medium flame for no more than 30 minutes
  • Broiling – High heat for no more than 10 minutes; broil on low to your heart’s content
  • Grill – Medium high flame for no more than 20 minutes
  • Microwave – High power for no more than 10 minutes when mixed into another dish
  • Freezing – No restrictions

Cooking for longer than the recommendations above will cause ENOF to degrade and begin to lose its nutritional value.

I received my order and there seems to be powder on the lid of an unopened canister.  Is this normal?
ENOF is a very fine powder and can move through even the smallest of gaps in the lid of the canister so it is possible that a very small amount of powder migrates through the lid.  As long as the safety tab is intact the product inside the canister is still safe to use.  Also, we do slightly overfill the canisters to account for this.

I received my order and it looks like the canister is only about one third full.  Is this correct?
Yes!  ENOF is a very concentrated powder so you only need a small amount to make a serving.  The product is packaged by weight (as opposed to volume), so the full package weight only fills about a third of the canister.  We would have used a smaller container, but we needed to include the Nutrition Facts on the label and there was no practical way to do this on a smaller container.

My kids love their vitamins, why is this better?
Most vitamins are made with synthetic nutrients which are not nearly as easily absorbed into the body as real food. Also, most vitamins have sugar, syrup, artificial coloring and other junk. Don’t your kids already get enough of those things? See here for more info 

Can I buy ENOF as a gift?
Yes you can and we think that’s great. Just set up the shipment to the recipient’s address. Right now we don’t have a way to gift wrap or include a note, but they will still really appreciate you thinking about them. 

I love ENOF and have a story that I’d like to share. Do you have a way for me to do that?
First of all, that’s awesome! We would love to hear your story. Just click here and tell us all about it.
