Here at Boulder Granola, we believe in healthy people AND a healthy planet. That’s why we choose to work with organic farms that employ natural pest control to maintain healthy soils—using complementary plant groupings, lunar cycles and other natural farming methods. Whenever possible, our ingredients are also locally sourced; this both supports local businesses and helps to reduce our carbon footprint.
Remember the old saying, you are what you eat? Well, we’re pretty sure you’re not a pesticide, toxin, fertilizer or genetically-modified organism—so we don’t put any of that stuff in your food. Just the most nutritious, delicious ingredients in the world.
Organic Almonds: Dietary guidelines recommend 4–5 servings of nuts and seeds per day, and almonds are a great place to start. These crunchy little guys are a rich source of Vitamin E, calcium, phosphorous, iron, magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper and niacin.
Organic Canola Oil: Low in saturated fat, high in monounsaturated fat and full of heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids, canola oil has well-known heart-healthy benefits. Its lightness and mild taste helps give our granola its hearty, nuggets-of-goodness texture.
Fair Trade Chocolate: Chocolate is rich in antioxidants, which can help improve circulation, reduce cholesterol and even improve your mood. Cocoa beans are rich in flavonoids, which are known to lower blood pressure and support a healthy heart.
Organic Coconut: This tropical nut is highly nutritious—it’s full of fiber, vitamins and minerals, and is an excellent source of protein. Rich in bacteria-fighting lauric acid, coconut can also aid in reducing total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.
Organic Cranberry: Boasting five times the antioxidant content of broccoli, these sweet-and-tart superstars are high in polyphenols—an especially potent antioxidant that can help lower harmful cholesterol (LDL) and raise good cholesterol (HDL).
Organic Golden Flax Seeds: High in fiber as well as Omega-3 essential fatty acids, flax seeds can help to reduce risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes—as well as increase the body’s natural ability to defend itself against bacteria and viruses.
Organic Maple Syrup: Low on the glycemic index and loaded with immune-boosting antioxidants, maple syrup is one the healthiest sweeteners on the planet. It’s also high in zinc, which is essential for lowering inflammation and boosting white blood cells.
Organic Rice Milk Powder: Hypoallergenic, lactose, gluten and cholesterol free, rice milk powder has an amino acid profile similar to mother’s milk—it helps maintain healthy skin, hair, eyes, heart, lungs, muscles, brain and nervous system.
Organic Gluten-Free Rolled Oats: High in carbohydrates, low on the glycemic index and high in fiber, oats provide sustained energy without causing unhealthy spikes in blood sugar. They’re also rich in energy-boosting minerals like phosphorous and iron.
Organic Pecans: High in both protein and healthy fats, pecans are slow to digest—providing sustained energy throughout the day. Pecans have more antioxidants than any other nut, and are rich in vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, potassium and zinc.
Organic Golden Sesame Seeds: These tiny seeds are a wonderful source of protein, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, zinc and fiber. They also contain sesamin and sesamolin, chemical compounds known to lower cholesterol and fight cancer.
Organic Sunflower Seeds: In addition to significant fiber and nutrient content, sunflower seeds contain high levels of tryptophan—an amino acid that increases your brain's production of serotonin, reducing tension and creating a relaxing effect.
