“How could Taoism inspire two dentists? For brothers Stephen and James Costello, founders of Stephen James Luxury Organics, it's simple: "the world's best" energy bars. Read More >
The duo came to Hong Kong more then 25 years ago to practice dentistry, and have had many patients asking them for advice on finding healthy snacks. But they'd found none that met their standards. So the brothers set out to make their own organic energy bars from high-quality pre-sprouted seeds and nuts sourced from around the world, dried at a low heat to preserve their enzyme content and aid digestion. It's a process they learned from traditional Chinese medicine.
The brothers held two "Organic Happy Hour" tasting sessions at Kee Club on Tuesday to promote the kosher, vegan, organic energy bars, in a variety of flavors ranging from the lightly sweet Beauty Bar to the chocolatey Choco Bar and the savory Pizza Bar. Stephen stressed that there was no soya in their products, because "soy is not a health food by any stretch of the imagination". He admitted that he did eat tofu, however.
The bars are available at Great and ThreeSixty.
When discussing their organic whole food ingredients, specifically their use of Coconut Flower Nectar as a sweetener , "Mark my words, in 10 years everybody will be using it," Stephen said. < Read Less
“Stephen James Luxury Organics, an international organic food company has announced the launch of three of its cutting-edge nutritional products in the North American market. Read More >
These include five different types of whole food energy bars which pack a huge nutritional punch, pili nuts (a brand ‘new’ gourmet nut) and Saffron Pink Himalayan salt. These products will be showcased at Expo West, the world’s largest natural and organic food fair, in Anaheim, California, between March 11th and 13th 2011. The products are currently available in Hong Kong and Shanghai and will be offered in Beijing, New York and London within the year.
“It’s an exciting time. After 6 years of tweaking we’re only now introducing what seem to be the most delicious, highest frequency energy bars to our friends and first time clients. The reactions have been so positive, everyone’s having fun with this” said James Costello, Co-CEO of Stephen James Luxury Organics. Stephen James Luxury Organics was founded in 2008 and is the brainchild of two American-born brothers, Drs Steven and James Costello, who have lived in South East Asia for 25 years. Although they were both rigorously trained in the western scientific tradition, they have spent years exploring many alternative therapies and philosophies, from Chinese Medicine to Zen meditation, in their quest for optimal wellness.
It had become increasingly obvious to them that what we eat is key to our health and wellbeing and they recognized that there was a growing demand for top of the range organic superfoods that deliver 110 percent in terms of nutritional clout. And so the idea was born of producing a line of pure, wholesome, natural, organic products that are bursting with goodness and ‘qi’ or natural energy.
All over the world in times gone by, some people (the medicine men, witches, shamans) knew that food was not just nourishing but that some foods, particularly sprouted nuts and seeds, herbs, and spices, had powerful healing and energetic properties. Stephen James Luxury Organics has combined the wisdom of the ancients and advanced techniques of the 21st century in terms of food transportation, storage and minimal processing to create products that enable us to thrive.
This is food that defines “organic” and “natural”. It’s only processing is having gone through the pre-sprouting process which “spikes” the Qi (or Life Force) in the product and actually enhances its collective nutritional value synergistically. By retaining its full complement of enzymes it is easily assimilated into the body and promotes radiant vitality and glowing health.
Sourcing the highest quality ingredients has taken three years. Stephen James Luxury Organics work closely with their suppliers and set meticulously high standards. Not only is everything natural, pure and organic, but farming practices are sustainable and ecologically sound. In many cases small farming communities have been revitalized by the demand for the very best they have to offer.
This is just the beginning. The goal of Stephen James Luxury Organics is to supply the finest natural, wholesome, energetic superfoods so that we can reclaim the radiant health and vibrant energy that is our birthright.
