Shasha Navazesh is ahead of his time. Shasha started making organic, non-GMO sprouted grain bread and cookies in 1999. Back then, most people were unaware of the inherent health benefits of these products. Drawing on his upbringing in Azerbaijan and his extensive knowledge of nutrition, Shasha followed his heart, creating bespoke products made from real, healthy ingredients with no compromise.
Two decades later, the industry has changed and, thanks to innovators like Shasha, consumers are demanding healthy, organic foods. Shasha and his team have worked tirelessly to educate consumers so that they can make healthier food choices.
Lovers of good food helped him grow his small bakery producing sourdough bread to a large organization in two plants. Shasha takes his commitment to the quality and integrity of the ingredients very seriously. Shasha Co. has been sprouting and germinating from the beginning to increase nutritional value and digestibility.
Shasha’s dedication to quality and the environment extends to the ethical running of both his plants. Concerned with the carbon footprint of manufacturing, Shasha installed a solar panel array to power the plants supporting the organization’s Canadian values of being local, green, healthy and friendly.
Shasha makes products that are healthy and good for people. There’s a pride in that. To celebrate twenty years of Shasha Co, he would like to thank his loyal supporters, family, friends and customers.
There are many foods that can be sprouted including vegetables seeds, grains, beans and legumes. Sprouting essentially boosts the nutrition that is available to us from the seed. Each seed, by nature is coated in phytic acid (and prohibitor enzymes) a natural substance that prevents the carbohydrates in the seed from being broken down in our digestive tract. This phytic acid is nature’s way of protecting the seed from being eaten by animals, birds and insects before it contacts the soil and grows. When we take a seed and sprout them, we essentially break down the phytic acid barrier (and the prohibitor enzymes) so that our digestive systems can absorb and digest all the carbohydrates and all the abundant nutritional elements provided by each seed.
