Khairat Al Tabeea is a one-stop solution if you crave for organic food products. It has an extensive collection from all around the world. Ahmed Obaid, the proprietor, is truly a nature lover and has a vision as he promotes the use of organic eateries in a world that is flooded with adulterated and synthetic food products.
Obaid, who is new to the retail market, says he wanted to do something unique, and his decision to come up with an organic food shop was born out of research and articulation. He chose Sharjah's reclusive university area as his abode, and his shop is a must-visit place for health-conscious food lovers. Obaid has picked the best of organic foodstuff on his shelf from Jordan, the US, Europe, Central Asia, New Zealand and from the UAE.
Making a point as to why organic food is so relevant, Obaid says, "We are what we eat, and choosing organic and natural foods lowers the level of exposure to pesticides." Organic foods, which are not genetically modified, are medically viable and carry many health benefits.
Obaid says, "Organically grown foods contain a higher level of antioxidants and healthy fats than conventionally grown foods." He says that the aim is to provide customers with the best natural and organic products, and "we are always on the lookout for local and international suppliers."
Khairat Al Tabeea's speciality is its grand collection of honey products from all over the world. "Our range of honey is from New Zealand, Europe, India, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. Some of our natural products from Jordan include za'atar (thyme), olive oil, natural soap and sumac."
Apart from it, Khairat Al Tabeea has the best of organically produced spices, cumin powder, fenugreek seeds, cinnamon powder, fennel seeds, flax seeds, turmeric, rice bran oil, toasted sesame oil, oats, and last but not the least sesame seed oil and coconut oil. Walnuts from Turkey, almonds from the US, as well as grains and spices from India, Jordan and Levant, make it a treasure trove for organic food. A vast range of cereals and juices, alike, can't be missed out.
Honey is in plenty to choose from such as black honey, raw honey, Himalayan honey, and blue borage honey. However, the signature product at the store, which makes it unique in the UAE, is the rarest collection of Manuka honey from New Zealand. Manuka is one of the purest forms of organic honey from New Zealand and Australia and is in demand for its nutrients. The store has 10-plus UMF (Unique Manuka Factor) tested packages on its shelf, as well as natural and non-tested Manuka products.
Khairat Al Tabeea has plans for expansion. Products can then be easily ordered online, with free home delivery facility across the UAE. Check it out at www.organicstoreuae.com
