Cofo was created out of a need for clean food. After being sick from Celiac disease, our founder needed a clean, easy to take source of protein to keep her body healthy. She found most protein powders were filled with gluten and lots of ingredients she couldn't pronounce and she couldn't find where the ingredients were sourced or their environmental impact.
When you support Cofo, be assured your collagen is from wild Alaskan fish that is from a Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable fishery and our fun flavors are from real food, organic, and non-gmo (not synthetics).
Each lot is independently tested for metals, toxins, and gluten to make sure we only offer safe, pure, and high quality collagen to our customers.
Upcycled from the skin of Marine Stewardship Council certified wild Alaskan non-GMO Pollock to support healthy oceans and sustainable wild fish populations. We only use fish skin since it has a low molecular size to improve bioavailability (cellular absorption). We do not use scales, cartilage, shellfish, or another type of waste material in our collagen and all of our fish is wild (non-GMO) vs. farm-raised.
We are the only USA collagen brand that is Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable to source from the US wild Alaskan pollock fishery.
Our collagen is traceable. We source all our fish collagen from one source, our partner Alaskan fishery, and require the Pollock be caught in USA waters (specifically the pristine Bearing Sea). To ensure quality, each batch is tested for metals and toxins.
We've even thought about the enzyme that is used in the collagen hydrolysis process to make hydrolyzed collagen. Most collagens use a chemical or animal-derived enzyme (typically derived from cow-gut), we use a plant-derived enzyme from papaya so those that do not eat bovine can be assured that their collagen is truly no cow.
Cofo Provisions uses hydrolyzed marine collagen because it has a lower molecular size and is 1.5x more easily absorbed by the body than bovine or porcine collagen, maximizing results.
Our collagen has Type I proteins with beneficial amino acids that build strength and support for your bones, joints, and ligaments, as well as skin, hair and gut.
One of the worldʼs leading antioxidant and magnesium-rich foods, cacao has been known to reduce stress, boost immunity, and increase calcium absorption. We're all chocolate aficionados, so we tested lots of cacao before picking this specific variety grown under canopy trees by local farms in the Dominican Republic.
The cacao beans are harvested, naturally fermented for 3-5 days in banana leaves, sun-dried, and cold-pressed, but never roasted to maintain minerals and antioxidants.
Because low wages are pervasive for cacao farmers, we only source fair trade certified to make sure our farmers are fairly compensated.
Trace levels of minerals and elements, such as cadmium (heavy metals), can be found in nearly all cocoa products. It is widely accepted by the industry that these elements are absorbed at the farm level through the soil of the cacao trees. The naturally occurring cadmium values may vary from each individual farm. We test each lot of cacao for cadmium and other heavy metals to ensure each lot meets our quality standards and complies with California Prop 65.
Our cacao is rich, delicious, and satisfies our frequent chocolate cravings, and we're betting you'll crave it too.
Coconut milk powder adds a subtle creaminess and natural sweetness to your drinks for a non-dairy milk option.
Coconuts have good "fatty acids" and no trans fats. The good fats are in the form of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) that are processed directly in the liver (by pass the stomach) for quick energy or ketone production.
How do we get delicious coconut milk powder from coconut milk? We shred and press fresh organic coconut meat to extract the coconut milk, then spray dry and reduce to a smooth powder. To decrease clumping, we add 2.5% Organic Tapioca Starch (Maltodextrin) and .5% of Organic Acacia Gum. Both of these ingredients are natural, organic, and not corn or soy derived.
If you transcend to a remote island beach when you smell and taste coconut, our made from real coconut collagen will definitely satisfy.
