Buy Kosher Snacks
Americans spend more than $21 million on snack foods every day according to the Snack Food Association. However, if you are looking to buy kosher snacks, you might find the task a bit daunting. Not to worry, Unique Pretzels has something delicious for you: Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells!
Our family owned business has been going strong for six generations dating all the way back to the 1800’s. We got our start in the pretzel capital of the country, Reading, PA, and have been turning out unparalleled pretzel products for over 120 years.
We are the original bakers of the famous split-open pretzel, called Unique “Splits”, the only one of their kind. We allow the raw pretzels to rest until they reach the peak of perfection. Then we place them in the oven and watch them burst open, developing crunchy, flavorful bubbles and crevices unlike any pretzel you’ve ever had before.
Our recent introduction of the 100% Whole Grain Sprouted Flour pretzels is the only of its kind in the industry. This pretzel has bolstered our standing as an industry leader.
Pretzels Aren’t Created Equal
Not all pretzels are created equal. They are not all kosher. Shortening, pretzel flavors, and dough conditioners can be a concern for kosher consumers. That is why it is so important to look for the proper kosher designation and accreditation on the packaging.
Nearly all Unique Pretzel products have been awarded the Orthodox Union (OU) seal of approval. The Orthodox Union is the most widely recognized kosher certification agency in the world. Make sure you look for the U inside a circle (or an O). When you see the OU symbol followed by a D, you will know that the product contains a kosher dairy ingredient as well.
Why Sprouted Grain Pretzels?
To improve shelf life and produce a softer, finer texture, most of the grains we encounter today have been refined and processed. They are perfectly edible, but the process removes the naturally occurring bran and germ. This means the dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals are also lost. The enriched versions do not completely replace what has been lost.
Sprouted grain pretzels offer the ability to maintain the natural nutrition found in whole grain while also providing a far more digestible snacking alternative. The process of sprouting grains maintains the value of the bran, germ, and endosperm while reducing the bitterness found in whole grain flours. They are naturally more delicious because they don’t require additives or preservatives to alter their taste.
Unique Pretzels bakes 16 varieties of delicious pretzels including kosher-certified pretzels for your healthy snacking pleasure. Rather than risk eating an unhealthy treat, look for Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells in your favorite stores.
