Though still in its infancy as a company, Atina Foods is coming in strong with products that pique the interest of all who see and taste them. Run by a married team, Suresh Pillai from Kerala, South India and Carrie Dashow, Atina Foods is bringing something new and fresh to the marketplace—something to take consumers by surprise (in a good way). In this exclusive interview with the delightful Co-Owner, Carrie, I learned about Ayurvedic properties, functional yet flavorful foods, and the trick to inventing delightfully different products.

10 Trendy Foods You'll Soon Be Seeing Everywhere

Ayurveda is the Indian practice of holistic medicine and an important part of it is diet. In Ayurvedic medicine, certain foods and herbs are eaten together to balance out a person’s health and to benefit digestion, immunity and more. While many Indian foods are Ayurvedic, many specialty brands are now expressly branding their products with the term... Atina Foods makes traditional Indian herbal jams, pickles and pastes, from “home recipes evolved from Indian Ayurvedic healing traditions.”
