Our Philosophy

From the Desk of Justin Penoyer, M.S. L.Ac.

I teach my patients that if all disease begins in the gut (Hippocrates thought so), then all health begins in the kitchen. Regular home cooked meals, traditional culinary methods, and medicinal spices are universal among the world's healthiest cultures.

However, many of us have never been shown how to cook or how to utilize spices for flavor and health benefits. I often hear, and have experienced myself, how frustrating it can be to find the time and know-how to cook meals at home that are both healthy and satisfying.

That is why Stephen and I have designed AcroAma Blends—to provide a practical means for preparing excellent home cooked meals using sea salt and traditional culinary herbs long known for their health benefits. The highest quality spices and sea salt perfectly blended, ready to use day in day out—a simple way to help “let thy food be thy medicine”.

Celtic Sea Salt® is certified Kosher by the Atlanta Kashruth Commission, and also certified by Europe's Nature et Progrès to be free from pesticides, herbicides and harmful chemicals.

logoHeavenly Organic®'s Heavenly Sugar® draws upon the wisdom of Ayurveda, using Indian Hibiscus and other wild-crafted organic herbs to remove impurities from the cane juice. This traditional method preserves most of the natural vitamins and minerals of whole cane juice, and due to the naturally higher vitamin and mineral content Heavenly Sugar® is absorbed more slowly into the bloodstream.  

Heavenly Sugar® is the only 100% organic cane sugar sold in the U.S., and is produced by a cooperative of hundreds of organic farms in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains throughout North Central India. We are dedicated to preserving the traditional lifestyle of these small family owned farms. The families have farmed for generations according to ancient, natural methods that preserve the rich fertile soil and ensure the maximum health-promoting qualities of the food they produce.

I decided to try the Northern European and I love it. It's become my mainstay at the home and I also keep a bottle of Tex Mex at work to add some life to our catered food lunches.

– Allen

The spices taste amazing and they fit with my family's organic eating habits. I finally was able to get my 2 year old toddler to eat shrimp thanks to the Mid-Eastern seasoning. I can't wait to try the other spice blends.

- Menina

I have to thank you and tell you how much we LOVE the Louisiana blend. I sprinkle it over vegetables with olive oil, roast them in the oven, and then serve over marinara on pasta. Our vegan gourmet version of Italian!

- Shelly

Delicious! Just the flavors I was hoping for! Thank you!

- Chris

I did the chicken breasts with coconut milk and Mid-Eastern Blend tonight. On a work night! Easy recipe and so delicious. It was so wonderous my husband is doing the dishes as a thank you!

- Lois

I use one of your blends almost every single day. Today I used the Louisiana on my scrambled eggs and cheese. Took it to a whole new level. Very good stuff!

– Brian

The spices have a wonderfull smell and made a fabulous sauce, just what I was looking for.

– Patricia

I made a chicken curry last night with your Mid-Eastern seasoning and was thoroughly impressed. Having the salt and pepper in the mix is convenient and made it easy.

– Mili

Been spicing up my sautéed vegetables with the Northern European and Tex Mex blends. I have found them both to be fragrant and delicious. Blessed to have a peek into the spice rack of Chef Stephen Dowe.

- William

I love your Mediterranean spice, I use it almost everyday. Lately I've been especially fond of making some olive oil balsamic vinegar with a sprinkle of some of the spice to dip my bread in. It's even a hit with my 8 year old daughter. Thank you!

– Stephanie

Since first using the Northern European Blend, my wife and I have almost exclusively used AcroAma for all our cooking. We even have it on our table for sprinkling on salads, rice and already cooked foods.

- Jason

I used the Caribbean Blend to season my ham roast along with some crushed pineapple, organic sugar, and apple cidar. Best ham I've ever had.

- Darleen

I use your Tex Mex blend on a regular basis, it's great! I use it on my eggs in the morning, even on my burritos I bring home from the restaurant. I've also noticed I'm cooking with less salt, which is all I really used before.

- Charles

Love the spices - big bottle - great value. 

– Connie

These blends are absolutely and completely wonderful. I have thrown out all my single spices in favor of your blends. Keep up the great work!

- Deborah

Tasty... aromatic ... organic ... what's not to like? All around outstanding.

- Laura

I purchased the sample pack and absolutely love each and every one. I also love that a little is enough to give immense flavor. I have tried them on fish and chicken but now will branch out using some of your recipes. Invaluable idea to include those!
