Food and Drink Finds at the Canadian Health Food Show 2024

Last month, I attended the annual Canadian Health Food Show at the Vancouver Convention Centre. This show saw food producers and suppliers from across North America and the world showing their products to mostly natural food retailers. It’s the largest show of its kind in Western Canada, with over 750 booths filled with all sorts of snacking foods, beverages, wellness and more.

Walking the aisles I saw a multitude of products and tasted my way around trying the tasty products and such, these are some that stood out for me.

Loved the flavours of the Sparkling Matcha drinks that included the Pink lemonade flavour as well as their Pineapple Pear.

Although not a new product this was a new product for me, the High Protein Ramen by Chef Woo and I tried a couple of their different tasty flavours.

Local producer The Good Chocolatier offered up some of their tasty chocolate bars for tasting and I loved their Pistachio & Sea Salt.

Truely Cereal featured a new product which was their high protein cereals, both the cinnamon and chocolate were good.

Prana is known for their tasty nuts and snacks and now they have this tasty Overnight Oats, loved both of the flavours, the Apple Crumble and Strawberry Shortcake.

Locally based, Barakah Foods features a wide selection of Indian dishes available in the freezer section of many grocery stores, I loved the Chicken Dum Biryani.

RiceUp is based in Bulgaria and they have several different brown rice snacks, I loved all of the flavours of their Brown rice chips as well as their Brown rice cakes.

Manitoba Harvest makes all sorts of healthy additions to cereals and such, their new Hemp + Matcha is a great add-on to their lineup.

Rad Jamz is a great lineup of Okanagan fruits and vegetables inside cool packaging, I loved their Peachy Caramel spread as well as their Zucchini Relish.

Ulivit features a selection of plant-based, crumbles and bites from peas, high-protein and all three that I tried were good.
