Buy Pretzels Online
Buy pretzels online so that you’ll always have these nutritious snacks on hand. Pretzels are crunchy and satisfying, but Unique Pretzel Bakery’s new Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells are also low in fat, sugar-free, organic, kosher, vegan, and loaded with healthy fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Unique Pretzel Bakery was founded in Reading, PA, during the late 1890s, so we’ve been busy baking pretzels for six generations. We are the original bakers of the famous split-open pretzel, called Unique “Splits”, the only one of their kind.
Unique’s latest pretzel sensations are Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells, nutritious snacks that we bake with organic sprouted 100% whole grain flour made by Essential Eating® Sprouted Foods. Not only are they the only authentically sprouted flour pretzels in mass production, they are also the first pretzels to be made with healthier organic extra virgin olive oil.
With thousands of snacks to choose from, it’s hard to know which ones are best for your health. Some diet “experts” may generalize and tell you that pretzels are nutritionally empty. That’s because most of them are made with refined flours that have been processed, bleached and refined, and stripped of most of their beneficial fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Why Sprouted Whole Wheat is Different
Our Sprouted Grain Pretzels are an incredibly healthy alternative to pretzels made from refined flour and other popular snack foods. They are GMO-free, organic, and contain no added sugars, flavors, malts, colors, additives or preservatives.
It’s the sprouted grains that make all the difference. A proper sprouting (or germinating) process converts the starch molecules in the grain to simple sugars which are classified as vegetables by the USDA. This makes them much easier to digest and metabolize. Eating Unique’s sprouted pretzels is almost like eating vegetables!
Another benefit of using the revolutionary sprouted wheat flour is that vitamin A, vitamin C and important B vitamins are increased during the sprouting process, and phytic acid, which may inhibit the body’s absorption of iron, calcium, zinc, and magnesium, is neutralized.
Sprouted Grain Pretzels vs. Other Snacks
Let’s see how Unique Pretzel Bakery’s 100% sprouted whole grain pretzels compare to other popular snacks.
- Popcorn – Popcorn is a healthy choice because it is also a 100% whole grain snack. Popcorn contains from 3 to 4 grams of fiber in each 1-ounce serving, while Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells are the only pretzels on the market to naturally provide 4 grams of healthy dietary fiber per serving!
- Potato Chips – Potato chips contain only three major ingredients—potatoes, oil, and salt, but one snack bag of chips will add about 155 calories, 10 grams of fat, 149mg of sodium, and no healthy grains to your diet. Each serving of Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells has only 110 calories, 2 grams of fat (which comes only from the extra-virgin olive oil we use), 270mg of sodium, and a whopping 25 grams of whole grains.
- Tortilla Chips – Containing only corn, oil and salt, our bodies metabolize tortilla chips as vegetables. One snack bag typically contains 142 calories, 7 grams of fat, 150mg of sodium, 2 grams of protein, and 2 grams of fiber. Choose Sprouted “Splits” or Sprouted Shells instead and enjoy fewer calories (110), less fat (2 grams), slightly more sodium (270mg), more protein (3 grams), and more healthy fiber (4 grams). And the sprouted whole grains (25 grams) are also digested as vegetables!
All of these snacks provide other nutrients, such as iron. Each serving of Sprouted “Splits” or Sprouted Shells contains 6% of the recommended daily intake of iron compared to popcorn with 4%, potato chips with 2%, and tortilla chips with only 1%. Iron helps the body store oxygen in its tissues and promotes a healthy immune system.
Snacks are important in any balanced diet, but it’s important to make the healthiest choices. Buy our pretzels online and boost your intake of nutritious whole grains. You’ll find them in our online store or at your local Wegmans, Fresh Market, Whole Foods or Giant stores.
