Our Story

           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.

Draw-a-Smile Foundation

Draw-A-Smile Logo

The primary program of the Draw a Smile Foundation is R U Hungry. R U Hungry has been feeding the homeless/poor of Jackson, Mississippi every week for over a decade. It started when Bilal was a student and saw a homeless man eating from the garbage. Our motto is "Do what you can, when you can." Which simply means even if you don't have money, share kindness even if it is a simple smile with others  ❤️
There are so many brilliant young scientific minds in Mississippi that often go overlooked. 
When Bilal presented his research at some prominent universities, some doctors asked "Do people wear shoes in Mississippi?" Many even asked if there were NIH funded labs in Mississippi (yes there are many).
Please help support the further innovation of our next generation of hope. 



Ideas that Transcend: Reflecting on Our Transformative History

Cancer breakthrough


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”

Product Launch
