Where to Buy Diabetic Snacks
Dealing with diabetes is challenging. However, determining where to buy diabetic snacks doesn’t have to be.
At Unique Pretzel Bakery, you can fulfill your snacking urge and enjoy them at the same time. We understand that managing blood sugar takes work and that healthy snack foods are necessary along the journey. That’s why our pretzels are sugar free, trans-fat free, high in fiber and nutritious.
Reading, PA is home to 80% of this country’s pretzel production, and it’s where we’ve been creating our own version of pretzels since the late 1800s. Our famous “split” open pretzels, called Unique “Splits,” are the only pretzels of their kind in the industry. There are many pretzel bakers in this area, but Unique Pretzels stands out because of our “unique” take on the traditional pretzel.
Why Eat Pretzels?
Given our Unique family history of over 120 years in the pretzel industry, we lead the pack in innovation, flavor, and nutrition. We recently introduced the first of its kind, 100% whole grain sprouted flour pretzels. These come in two forms: Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells.
These new sprouted grain pretzels are the result of Essential Eating Sprouted Foods’ revolutionary flour. They mill the whole grains (bran and germ intact) into a flour that is unlike other sprouted grain “flours” that are actually a type of mash or paste. This allows the whole grains to retain their natural benefits. And, it removes the harsh outer layer that tends to make whole grains bitter.
When whole grains are handled properly, and allowed to sprout, they become more like vegetables than starches, making them easier for the body to digest. The simple sugars are converted into energy rather than fat, and vegetable enzymes are used to digest them instead of pancreatic enzymes.
But these are not the only benefits that come from eating Unique Pretzel’s newest varieties: Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells. They are also:
- Trans-fat free
- High in fiber
- Certified Organic
- Diabetic friendly
The fiber that remains in these pretzels, thanks to the 100% whole grain sprouted flour, is hugely beneficial. Fiber has been shown to improve blood sugar levels in the body. The USDA recommends that we ingest 14 grams of fiber for every 1000 calories. Each serving of Unique Pretzel’s Sprouted “Splits” and Sprouted Shells offers 4 grams of fiber. This is healthy snacking at its finest.
Of course, making the choice to eat healthier snacks isn’t limited to diabetics. We should all be striving to add fiber to, and decrease sugar from, our diets. With the help of Unique Pretzel’s 16 different pretzel flavors and styles, we can all be on the path to healthier living.
