fresh from the farm
We source the best-tasting, most nutritious organic produce.
It's flash-frozen to lock in the vitamins, minerals, macronutrients and fiber.
Gentle heating removes the water content to create a shelf-stable product.
We mix the ingredients in small batches according to our chefs' recipes, ready to ship to you.
What’s in the bowls?
The primary ingredients are organic freeze-dried fruits, vegetables, and legumes, then we season things up with a wide range of flavorful herbs and spices. We don’t add any refined sugars or anything artificial. For full nutrition facts, check each of the individual bowls landing pages.
How do I prepare bowls?
Bowls can be prepared in the microwave (4-6 mins), or by mixing into freshly boiled water (6-10 mins). You’ll receive a detailed instruction booklet with your first order. The provided bowl is microwave safe.
Are bowls full meals, or meant to be supplemental?
All of our bowl flavors are chef-designed and Dietitian-approved. (That just means that careful consideration was given to their flavor and nutritional profiles.) Each bowl packs plenty of vitamins and minerals, fiber, and protein — for full nutritional info on each flavor click to its individual landing page above — so they can certainly stand on their own as a light meal, and ought to feel both filling and nutritious.
The bowls are also super versatile, so you can add your own twists or incorporate them into a bigger spread. Depending on your appetite and nutritional needs, you may want to pair your bowl with an additional source of protein (we love speed dhal with pan-fried tofu) or carbohydrate (for example, souperfast minestrone with crusty bread). If you’re after a quick seasoning hack, a simple glug of olive oil or a squeeze of lemon juice can help the flavors sing.
Do they contain allergens like egg, dairy, nuts, or gluten?
Certain bowls do contain gluten by design, in the form of pasta. And all our bowls are packaged in a facility that also handles egg, gluten, soy, and tree nuts, so they may contain trace amounts of these ingredients. If you have a sensitivity to any of these common allergens, it’s best to consult with your doctor before trying kencko bowls.
Can I prepare my bowl and take it with me to eat later?
Even though your bowl comes with a band that helps it fasten closed on the go, we don’t recommend you transport your bowl with a prepared meal inside of it. The contents inside start out very hot, and even the most carefully packed backpack has a tendency to jostle around. (Carrying it from the kitchen or breakroom to your desk or table is another story, however. If it’s just a short distance, go for it!)
How many servings of produce are in each bowl?
Each kencko bowl contains at least four of your five-a-day*, meaning there is the equivalent of 320g of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables in each packet. (*What’s five-a-day, you ask? Doctors, nutritionists, and scientists agree that five daily servings of fruits and veggies is the minimum amount recommended to see lasting health benefits from an improved diet.)
Is the provided kencko bowl dishwasher safe?
Yes! The bowl itself, plus the spork are both dishwasher safe — we recommend they go on the top rack, and run through a gentle cycle. The band, however, is not. For best results, try to at least rinse out your bowl shortly after you’re done eating.
Why are some flavors out of stock?
Since we use organic produce in all of our products, we’re often at the mercy of growing seasons and the oft-maligned global supply chain. That means we will sometimes run low on certain key ingredients. Plus, our chefs like to mix things up by creating new and exciting bowls, so that our menu never goes stale.
How does my subscription work?
It’s a flexible plan which you control from your online dashboard. You pick your flavors, select add-ons, and choose between regular monthly shipments of 7, 10, 20, 30, or 60 smoothies. You can also skip a month's box, or cancel your plan at any time - there’s no notice period or minimum contract length. We always give you a heads-up by email before each refill shipment, with plenty of time to swap your flavors, change delivery date, or cancel.
What if I already have a smoothies or gumdrops subscription?
It’s easy to add a bowls plan to your existing kencko subscriptions. Make sure you use the same email address when you check out, and we’ll set you up to manage both plans on your existing kencko account page. If you log in before you check out, we’ll be able to prefill your address and payment info, speeding up your checkout to just a few clicks. Your bowls, smoothie and gumdrop subscriptions are each independent, which means you can adjust the quantities and refill frequency of each of your plans separately, and pause or cancel one while you keep the others.
Can I order some bowls without subscribing?
No, sorry. kencko is a membership service, dedicated to helping people make lasting changes: it takes time to build healthy habits, and we find that our members really see the benefits when they commit to upping their fruit and veggie intake over time. The subscription model also helps us to reduce waste from overproduction by keeping demand more predictable so that we can make the right quantities of our products. However, if you decide that kencko is not for you we’ve made it very easy to cancel after one box.
