Are you among the millions of Americans who lack enough fiber in your diet? Unique Pretzel Bakery recently introduced the only 100% whole grain sprouted flour pretzels in the industry. These snacks are kosher, vegan, diabetic-friendly, low in fat, high in fiber, and will satisfy the cravings of anyone who simply wants to eat better.
According to the USDA, grains provide us with fiber and essential vitamins and minerals, including the B vitamins (niacin, riboflavin, thiamin and folate) which improve metabolism and are important for a healthy nervous system, iron (which carries oxygen through the blood), zinc (which helps build a healthy immune system) and magnesium (which builds healthy bones).
Fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, seeds and nuts are natural sources of fiber. Eating a high fiber diet is known to promote good digestive health and regularity, but it can also help maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes. Unfortunately, most of us don’t get enough whole grains or fiber in our diets.
Why? We’re under the mistaken impression that eating refined grain products like bread, pizza, pasta and rice provide us with adequate fiber. Not so. Once the grains have been refined, processed and bleach, there’s little fiber left in them. More bad news: refined products are usually higher in calories.
Whole grains are a far better choice because they contain the entire grain – the bran, germ and endosperm. They are important sources of B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin and folate), iron, magnesium and selenium. When grains are refined, most of these nutrients are lost in the process.
High Fiber Snacks
Nutrition experts believe adult men should consume 38 grams of fiber per day and adult women should consume 25 grams.
Our 100% whole grain Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells are the only pretzels on the market to naturally provide 4 grams of dietary fiber per 1-ounce serving.
This means that just one serving of our sprouted grain pretzels is equal to 10% of the recommended daily intake for men and 16% for women. In comparison, potato and tortilla chips will provide you with approximately 1.2 grams per 1-ounce serving.
Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells also contain only 2 grams of fat per serving. In fact, the only source of fat is the extra-virgin olive oil we use in them. When you compare similar-sized servings of potato chips and tortilla chips, you’ll find they have 10 grams and 7 grams of fat, respectively.
The Spannuth family has been baking pretzels in the heart of Pennsylvania pretzel country (Reading, PA) for six generations. We’re proud of our superior quality and high standards. We use our knowledge of the baking process to achieve the finest flavors and textures, without throwing in unnecessary additives. We believe our pretzels will tantalize the palate of any pretzel lover.
Unique Pretzel’s sprouted grain pretzels are also kosher certified, organic, vegan, diabetic-friendly, and designed to help you add more wholesome high fiber snacks to your diet. Why not buy some online or look for them at your local Wegmans, Fresh Market, Whole Foods and Giant stores, and get the healthiest pretzels on the planet?
