High Fiber Snacks
Whenever you are looking for healthy, high fiber snacks to lower the risk of diabetes and heart disease, try the new Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells from Unique Pretzel Bakery. Not only are they high in fiber, they are also low in fat and calories, sugar-free, lactose-free, trans fat-free, saturated fat-free and nutrient rich. Could snacks possibly get any healthier?!
Unique Pretzel Bakery was founded about 120 years ago in Reading, PA. Our most famous brand is Unique Pretzels “Splits”, a split-open pretzel which was accidentally invented in the early 1950s after the dough was left to set too long and the pretzels split during baking.
In addition to our traditional pretzel recipe, we have introduced the only 100% whole grain sprouted flour pretzels in the industry. They are kosher, vegan, diabetic-friendly, and may help people who are sensitive to traditional flours and those who simply want to eat better.
These Unique pretzels are made from a revolutionary new sprouted flour from Essential Eating® Sprouted Foods. Why is it revolutionary? Because the body digests this sprouted whole wheat flour more like a vegetable than a starch. Proper sprouting breaks down the starches into simple sugars, which the body can use for energy instead of storing them as fat.
About Dietary Fiber
Fiber is found naturally in plant foods, including fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, seeds and nuts. Eating a high fiber diet has long been known to promote good digestive health and regularity. But fiber can also help you maintain a healthy weight and lower the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
The problem is that much of our American daily fiber intake comes from refined grain products like bread, pizza, pasta and rice. Not only do refined grain products, such as white flour, contain little fiber, they are also typically higher in calories.
Whole grains are a far better choice because they contain the entire grain – the bran, germ and endosperm. Those components are important sources of B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin and folate), iron (which carries oxygen in the blood), magnesium and selenium. When grains are refined, most of these nutrients are lost in the process.
Diets rich in soluble fiber may lower the risk of developing hemorrhoids or diverticulitis (which affects the colon), reduce blood pressure, “bad” cholesterol and inflammation, improve blood sugar levels in people with diabetes, and lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Fiber makes you feel full for a longer time, and makes overeating less likely. High fiber foods also have fewer calories for their volume and can help maintain a healthy weight.
Our Sprouted Grain Pretzels are High in Fiber
Each 1-ounce serving of Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells contain 4 grams of fiber. According to nutrition experts, adult men should consume 38 grams of fiber per day and adult women should consume 25 grams. So just one serving of our sprouted grain pretzels is equal to 10% of the recommended daily intake for men and 16% for women. Potato and tortilla chips have only about 1.2 grams per 1-ounce serving.
Our 100% whole grain sprouted flour pretzels are the only pretzels on the market to naturally provide 4 grams of dietary fiber per serving! They are also kosher certified, USDA Certified organic, vegan, diabetic-friendly, and designed to help you add more wholesome whole grains to your diet.
