FAQ and Resources
Q: Where is Bija Bhar's Kitchen?
A: Our products are produced at Pilot Works, a culinary incubator in Brooklyn, New York.
Q: Is the Kitchen a Nut Free/Gluten Free/Dairy Free/Organic Facility?
The kitchen does produce products with nuts, wheat and other allergens. However we are vigilant about rewashing any shared equipment and making sure our kitchen and storage are always completely free of any possible contaminants. Please contact us if you have a specific question.
Because our Incubator is not organic, we cannot make our product certified organic, but rest assured, all our ingredients are not only certified organic, they are minimally processed with zero additives or chemicals!
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 soil, dried and ground with minimal heat, and multiple strains are blended for 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?
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 store 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! And we also have a food service size for cafe's and restaurants that are interested in putting Resilience on their menus. I'd love to hear from you!
More coming soon. Have a question you'd like to see included? Let us know!
