Kosher Snacks for Kids
We all love our kids, and looking out for their health by providing them kosher snacks is important. However, determining which snacks are most nutritious but also have a kosher designation can often be a challenge.
Unique Pretzel Bakery provides the guarantee you have been looking for when it comes to wholesome kosher snacks. Our pretzel packaging incorporates the Orthodox Union (OU) seal of approval, a U encircled by an O. The additional D signifies the inclusion of kosher dairy products or the utilization of machinery that has been in contact with kosher dairy ingredients.
You can rest assured that Unique Pretzels are kosher-certified thanks to the fact that the OU is the most recognized kosher accrediting agency in the world. They adhere to the strict Biblical guidelines for true kosher designation. And, your kids will love these pretzels.
Given the fact that statistics show the average American consumes about 2 pounds of pretzels every year, it’s amazing to discover that pretzels have a tremendously long history. Having originated, in soft form, in AD 610, the pretzel didn’t achieve its delicious crunchiness until the late 1600s.
Sometimes great things happen by accident. The story is that a pretzel baking apprentice fell asleep and ended up baking his soft pretzels far too long. However, once people tasted the accidental crunch, the hard pretzel became a hit.
The first commercial pretzel bakery opened in Lititz, Pennsylvania in 1861. Unique Pretzel Bakery quickly followed suit in 1890 and, up until 1935, made pretzels by hand. The average pretzel baker could tie 40 pretzel knots a minute. But, when the Reading Pretzel Machinery Company introduced the first automated pretzel maker, production capability went up to 245 pretzels a minute (roughly 5 tons daily).
Kosher and Healthy
Unique Pretzels’ Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells are like a two-for-one deal – they are kosher AND healthy! By incorporating Essential Eating® Sprouted Foods’ 100% sprouted whole grain flour into our pretzels, Unique Pretzel Bakery has maintained its industry leading position.
The process of refining grains removes much of the dietary fiber, iron, and many B vitamins the whole grain contains. Although these refined products are later enriched with vitamins and minerals, important dietary fiber is not added back.
Sprouted grains are phenomenal because they allow whole grains to be rinsed and milled into a flour that retains the protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. This creates foods that can decrease the risks for type 2 diabetes, diverticulitis, heart disease, stroke, and obesity.
