Buy Whole Grain Pretzels
Given the current trend towards increased awareness of healthy diet choices, whole grain pretzels are probably one of the healthiest snacks you can buy. They are low in fat and free of cholesterol and other potentially harmful additives. But why are whole grains good for you?
The USDA tells us to eat grains daily but they go even further with that recommendation by suggesting that at least half of those be whole grains; preferably 48 grams. Studies have shown that eating whole grains could decrease your chances of Type 2 diabetes, stroke, obesity, hypertension, colorectal cancer, and heart disease.
What are Whole Grains?
Whole grains are seeds that have not germinated. This means that they have yet to sprout. Therefore, their beneficial qualities – bran, germ and endosperm – are still intact. When we refine grains, we strip them of the bran and germ thereby eliminating many useful nutrients.
Making sprouted whole grain into flour is a remarkable process that enables the grain to retain its nutritional value. It also allows the body to recognize the products made with this flour as vegetables rather than starches. This aids in the digestion process by turning the food into simple sugars for energy instead of storing it as fat.
The method used by Essential Eating® Sprouted Flour & Foods to prepare the whole grains used in our flour is unlike that of other producers. They employ an organic rinse to retain the bio-agents in the grains. This helps ensure that our whole grain pretzels are easily digestible and diabetic-friendly.
Sprouted Grain Pretzels
Since 1890, Unique Pretzels has been creating fantastic pretzel varieties. However, we are the only bakers in the industry to offer a 100% Whole Grain Sprouted Flour pretzel. These pretzels come in two options: Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells.
The Split Pretzel concept is an old family recipe. Although the recipe is carefully guarded, the process is well-known. We let the raw pretzels rest until they reach optimum perfection and then we place them in the oven where they burst open. This process creates crevices and bubbles that are crunchy and flavorful.
When you add the wholesome qualities of whole grain to this fabulous family creation, there’s no end to the enjoyment. The sprouted whole grain flour in the Unique Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells enables snackers to enjoy kosher, non-GMO, diabetic-friendly treats.
One look at the simple, healthy ingredient list will illustrate that all you are getting is organic sprouted 100 percent whole wheat flour, organic extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and yeast.
