Our rice and chickpeas are all sourced right here in Canada from Canadian farmers, and are Non-GMO.

Pokko is produced only from natural ingredients which do not contain any artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives.

Our asafetida seasoning contains a very small amount of wheat flour in order for it to be easily used for cooking. Our team has tested the gluten level a few times at a lab which has shown that it has an insignificant amount. However, we always advise to first consult your doctor and take precaution when eating Pokko, should you have any intolerance or allergy to gluten.

We will only use non-hydrogenated oils whether that is canola, soybean or sunflower oil. Usage of a specific oil will be based on the recent global commodity price volatility. All oils have been tested with Pokko to ensure our authentic taste does not change.

Yes they are. Nothing artificial about it! Our Kashmini chili peppers are imported from India, and they are as pure as you’ll get.  Did you also know that Kashmiri chilis are rich in Vitamin C?
