FAQ

Is Everything You Serve plant-based & Gluten-Free?

Everything we serve is made from plants and of ingredients that are naturally gluten-free. Because tamari is often made with wheat, and oats are often milled together with wheat, we specifically source these items certified gluten-free, defined as less than 20ppm.

In other words, we do our best to ensure that everything we serve contains less than 20ppm of gluten but unfortunately we cannot guarantee it, because while there are institutions that certify packaged products gluten-free, as yet they do not certify restaurants.

How are your oats gluten-free?

Oats are naturally gluten-free, but are often processed in the same facilities as wheat and barley. Our oats come from Avena Foods in Saskatchewan, who have gone through a Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP), and are 100% gluten-free!

Are all the take out materials compostable?

Yes, every single take-out item can be composted- even our straws!

Is your food organic?

Many of our ingredients are organic. As a rule, anything on the Environmental Working Group's “Dirty Dozen” list is organic at Kupfert & Kim. This list identifies produce with high levels of pesticide residue when not grown organically. Our organics include kale, arugula, bok choy, pea sprouts, cucumbers, apples, pears, cranberries, bananas, blueberries, quinoa, toasted sesame oil, dulse, chia, goji, tofu, tempeh, and soy milk.
