Here Is Our Story.
Pantry is a better-for-you edibles company inspired by our co-founders search for a healthier alternative to smoking. On their quest, as many consumers do, they examined the nutritional facts of their edibles. A common theme quickly emerged: Highly processed, artificial junk seemed to be the only kind of edible that existed. They lived in Los Angeles, California, maybe the most health-conscious city on the planet. For a community that obsesses over health and wellness, the disconnect was clear.
They knew they couldn’t be the only people craving more wholesome edible products. The lightbulb went off, and Pantry was created. At Pantry, everything starts and ends with our products. We believe quality products start with quality ingredients, so we are hyper-focused on what goes into our edibles. We work with nutritionists and doctors to ensure our products are nutritious, and we partner with a Michelin-starred chef to ensure they’re delicious. We pride ourselves on creating foods we would want to eat just because they taste great — no “extras” involved.
Our products are for the consumer who cares about the ingredients they put in their body and understands how functional nutrition fuels them throughout the day or not. We are redefining what an edible can be by pushing beyond the candy-coated stereotype.
Pantry founders, in partnership with Dr Deborah Kimless and Chef Michael Magliano, joined together to create a bar with a balanced distribution of macronutrients.
Meet Dr. Deb Kimless
As Pantry’s chief medical officer, Debra Kimless, M.D., is boldly bridging the gap between nutrition and cannabis. She has spent the past three years studying medical cannabis, including time with the world’s leading experts in the Netherlands and Israel. Motivated by her mother’s struggle with pain at the end of her life, Dr. Kimless has herself become widely regarded by her peers as one of the most experienced physicians specializing in the endocannabinoid system, microdose, topical therapies and how medical cannabis can be beneficial to help treat medical conditions as well as reduce or replace opioids for pain relief.
Meet Chef Michael “Mags” Magliano
Pantry’s head chef Michael “Mags” Magliano has worked alongside some of the culinary world’s best Michelin-starred chefs, including such greats as Thomas Keller, Tom Colicchio and Michael Tusk. Chef Mags was also chef de cuisine at Los Angeles institution Animal in its prime and will soon open Green Gusto, where he will cook with hemp from California’s Ziese Farms. At Pantry, Chef Mags has put his plant-based cooking expertise to work by developing nutritious edibles with only real food ingredients and even superfoods and adaptogens.
Why Plant Based Protein?
A 2020 study found that restoring natural vegetation to grow plant-based proteins like lentils, beans and nuts could offset anywhere from nine to 16 years worth of carbon emissions, doubling the Earth’s shrinking carbon budget.
Unlike animal proteins, the proteins found in plants like legumes and nuts aren’t accompanied by the less healthy saturated fats and cholesterol.
Plant-based diets have been linked to cancer prevention and a lowered risk of heart disease, while they’ve been shown to help manage type 2 diabetes.
The fiber found in plant-based proteins have been shown to keep you feeling fuller for longer compared with animal proteins.
Studies On Plant-Based Foods
According to a 2016 study in the American Journal of Epidemiology, participants who replaced 5% of their protein intake with plant-based protein decreased their risk of type 2 diabetes by 23%.
Hemp seed has about 15 grams of protein per quarter-cup and has all nine essential amino acids — making it a complete protein.
Hemp seeds are highly anti-inflammatory and full of antioxidants, with a 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids. Animal proteins typically have a highly inflammatory ratio of about 15:1.
A 2018 study in the Journal of Renal Nutrition found that plant-based diets are preferable for people with chronic kidney disease and protect against high blood pressure and other conditions.
Replacing animal protein with plant-based proteins lowers your risk of mortality from disease, especially cardiovascular disease, a 2016 JAMA Internal Medicine study found.
Unlike animal-derived proteins, hemp has a high amount of fiber, which creates a microbiome in the gut that allows the seed’s other nutrients, including minerals, to be absorbed more effectively.
