Gourmend is a sustainably-sourced line of low FODMAP cooking essentials for the 45 million people in the U.S. that suffer from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). We’ve developed a range of food products that replace symptom-causing ingredients with flavorful, unique, clean, gentle alternatives.

Environmental Commitment:

Inputs for our products are grown organically or “beyond organic” and we compost or upcycle as much of our food waste as possible. Our Garlic Scape Powder reduces food waste – this product is normally thrown away by farmers but we have found an audience of people that benefit from the way we use them.

Furthermore, several of our producers are powered via solar energy and we have committed to calculating and offsetting 100% of our Scope 1, 2 and 3 carbon emissions each year.

“We take responsible ingredient sourcing very seriously at Gourmend and, for an eCommerce business where shipping is a necessary evil, we want to do as much as we can to offset our impact. Carbonfund’s portfolio of high quality, vetted, carbon reduction projects provides us the confidence that our contributions will have a tangible benefit to the environment. We’re excited to Partner with Carbonfund for many years to come.”  – Ketan Vakil, President and Founder
