FAQ and Resources
Q: Where is Bija Bhar's Kitchen?
A: We now have our own space in Red Hook, Brooklyn but are producing most of our product with a local co-packer.
Q: Is the Kitchen a Nut Free/Gluten Free/Dairy Free/Organic Facility?
My product is always produced in isolation from anything else with fully sanitized equipment but there are allergens processed in the larger facility so please contact us if you have a specific question.
All our ingredients are not only certified organic, they are minimally processed with zero additives or chemicals! We hope we can afford organic certification in the near future!
Q: Where is your turmeric from? What makes you say it's the best and purest stuff on earth?
A: All our turmeric and ginger comes directly from an incredible organic farm in Hawaii. It's grown in nutrient dense volcanic soil, dried in slices and ground fresh for every batch with minimal heat. Multiple strains are blended for high potency as well as a smooth, delicious flavor.
Q: Did you go to culinary school?
A: Nope. My mom's kitchen continues to be my training ground. My mom's knowledge, instincts, and creativity in the kitchen along with her respect for the ingredients she uses were truly the inspiration for Bija Bhar. I could still use some better knife skills though...
Here's my mom carefully sorting lentils back in 1964...this dedication and attention to detail was instilled in me at a young age, and it's something I still carry with me, especially in the kitchen.
Q: Who Designed the Bija Bhar logo and packaging?
A: Our logos were designed by Evan Sargent.
Q: I don't see a photo credit on any images. Why is that?
Bija Bhar's founder, Anjali Bhargava, is a photographer and has taken all the uncredited images on the site. It is the only reason a photo will ever be uncredited on our site. Please credit your photographers anywhere you possibly can, it is really important and it's good karma! If it is their profession, they put more time, energy, and money into their craft than you might imagine. Our new single serve photos were done by Robyn Lehr Photography!
Q: What stores are you in?
I know we need one of those fancy maps that show you everywhere we are but the truth is, I haven't gotten to it. Meanwhile we're adding new stores, including stores and cafes outside of NY every week, so feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the customer service app and let me know the store, neighborhood, city, or state in question and I'll let you know right away! We are also happy for your suggestions.
Q: Do you sell wholesale?
YES! Almost all our retail packaging is available in cases of 4-6 units for wholesale purchase. We also have a food service size for cafe's and restaurants that are interested in putting Resilience Turmeric Elixir on their menus. I'd love to hear from you if you'd like more information about this.
More coming soon. Have a question you'd like to see included? Let us know!
