The inspiration for Dastony came from a desire to share what we feel is the healthiest and by the far the smoothest nut and seed butters. We are a family owned company with uncompromising standards of purity, taste, and integrity. Our values are in place due to our deep understanding of the benefits that can be achieved through quality ingredients, and when it comes to taste, well, we work tirelessly in this respect. Our integrity is unwavering and our loyal customers and fans would testify to this.
The Dastony Process
Dastony uses an ancient method known as stone-grinding in the production of its products. Originally used for turning olives into luscious and delicious olive oil, stone-grinding applies pressure with powerful, perfectly smooth granite wheels. Although "old world" in its approach, it is revolutionary in terms of preserving nutrients and flavor. This natural preservation is accomplished by maintaing a consistently low temperature throughout the entire process. Another unmatched result of stone-grinding is a silky smooth texture and mouth feel that is truly beyond words.
Our commitments to raw, vegan, and organic.
We use only the highest quality, organic nuts and seeds in the making of all of our Dastony's Gourmet Nuts and Seeds. We take it one step further by never adding any preservatives to our products. From farm to jar, Dastony is always chemical free.
It is critical that the fats found in nuts and seeds are never heated "cooked" above 118 degrees Fahrenheit. Doing so will transform highly sought after 'healthy fats' into avoid-at-all-costs 'bad fats'. Dastony's unique process never subjects the ingredients to temperatures that exceed this threshold.
Animal products are never used in our Dastony products, and never will be. Our vegan approach isn't only for our company's moral beliefs but also because of our understanding of the dangers associated with eating animal products.
