From a university lab to a science-based food brand
Our journey began in a university lab when our CEO, Bilal Qizilbash (B.S. in biology, M.S. in medical sciences), made a breakthrough discovery. He discovered that juiced leafy kale could selectively kill melanoma cancer cells in vitro while leaving non-cancerous cells alone. The breakthrough led to a U.S. patent and continued laboratory studies. This discovery was nothing short of a scientific breakthrough, but it was accompanied by a more significant realization—the potential to positively impact humanity through a simple yet powerful product : Bilal's EasyKale® .
Driven by his desire to help people incorporate nutrient-rich kale into their daily diets effortlessly, Bilal embarked on a path to transform his research findings into a tangible solution. This journey led to the creation of Bilal's EasyKale®, a revolutionary product that makes adding #dailykale to one's diet convenient and enjoyable.
As the CEO of EasyKale Labs, he's continuing his research into the cancer-fighting properties of kale, while offering a next-generation product for making kale consumption easier-Bilal's EasyKale®. The transformation from EasyKale Labs to Ek Foods, Inc represents a significant milestone for the company. With an expanding product portfolio and a continued commitment to science-based nutrition, Ek Foods is poised to revolutionize the food industry by providing innovative, nutritious, and convenient meal solutions that cater to the evolving needs of individuals and institutions alike.
Through its ongoing cancer research, dedication to quality, and emphasis on customer satisfaction, Ek Foods strives to be a leader in the science-based food industry, empowering individuals and institutions to make informed dietary choices and enjoy the benefits of a healthy, well-rounded diet.
We are passionate about inspiring people to have a heart for helping each other
Ideas that Transcend: Reflecting on Our Transformative History
Bilal's research, based on his education in Biology and Medical Sciences, led to the discovery that juiced kale can attack and kill melanoma cells while not affecting non-cancerous cells in a controlled laboratory setting. This breakthrough in cancer research was the impetus behind the development of Bilal's EasyKale®.
According to Bilal: “The great hope for the future of cancer treatment is approaches that are reliably lethal to cancer cells, while sparing healthy cells entirely. The finding that a natural, safe, readily available, and inexpensive source may harbor just such potential is truly stunning. But there is so much work we need to do together”
Bilal's EasyKale® was tested with a select group of consumers who provided feedback that helped to refine the product.
After testing and consumer feedback, the next step for Bilal's EasyKale® was expansion. MiraKale Labs LLC officially launched Bilal's EasyKale® Kale Shaker in 2019. The product was sold on Amazon and on the EasyKale website, which was well-received, and soon gained a loyal following of health-conscious consumers due to its many benefits and unique tasteless powder form, which made it easy to incorporate into a variety of dishes without altering the taste.
