Enspice has reimagined nutrition by enhancing tasty seasonings and spices with plant-based nutrients. What began with a medical mission trip to Guatemala in 2015 by the Murphy family led to the idea for enspice – putting the nutrients we all need into the seasonings and spices used around the world. The Murphy’s founded the enspice children’s foundation in 2016 to feed malnourished children while enspice was under development. 24,000 meals and 4 years later, enspice launched its first commercially available products in 2020 – 6 spice blends enhanced with 21 nutrients sourced from 10 organic plants.
Enspice is committed to building a future with food equity for all by making every meal nutritious. In the US, the majority don't consume enough nutrients - we are overfed and undernourished. In other countries, there is an absolute lack of nutrients - underfed and malnourished. Enspice was founded to solve both of these problems. Each enspice blend provides 50% of the FDA daily recommended dose of vitamins and minerals sourced directly from their natural plant sources, including kale, spinach, and pumpkin. For each enspice product sold, they're able to provide a nutrient-dense meal for a child in need through their foundation. Buy one feed one - their self-sustaining solution for balancing out the global nutrient deficit.
Enspice is currently available online at www.enspice.com, has happy customers in over 45 states in the US and Canada, and is in select retail locations in Chicago and NYC.
The Murphy's are the founders of enspice and the enspice children's foundation. They're a family with a medical background, and a love for the best humanity has to offer - children. After traveling to Madagascar and Guatemala to provide medical aid for children and their families, they saw the same nutrient deficiencies across diverse diets.
Wanting to do more, they founded the enspice children's foundation in 2016 to provide nutrition for children around the world. They started providing nutritious meals for children, one meal at time. And continued working on their idea for enspice, enhanced spices packed with the nutrients we all need.
24,000 meals and 4 years later, enspice was finally created and their social enterprise was born. In providing the most convenient and natural way to get nutrients from their natural sources, they're building food equity for the children of the world.
