Voyaging Foods develops gluten-free baked goods and dry mixes from Hawaiian heritage canoe plants such as Kalo (Taro) , 'Uala (Sweet Potato) and 'Ulu (Breadfruit).
How are we different than any other gluten-free company? Voyaging Food produces Ancestral Taro Powder from Hawaiian Taro, as a starch replacement and thickener for use in soups, stews, smoothies, or oatmeal. We also use it in all our baked goods and dry mixes.
Why Taro? Taro, a vegetable tuber, contains fiber, iron and vitamin B's (most commonly missing in gluten-free diets) and is one of the most digestible food staples in the world. And as a local food advocate, we only source Hawaiian Taro to increase food growing lands in Hawaii. With your support, we donate a portion of our proceeds back to Hawaii's community.
