Quinn Snacks’ new Gluten-Free Pretzels help to establish whole grain, ancient grain, corn-free, soy-free, dairy-free, non-GMO project verified gluten-free pretzel with full ingredient transparency. The company uses whole grain sorghum to create the salty snacks. Sorghum produces antioxidants and polyphenols to protect itself from pests and disease. In some varieties the sorghum bran (the husk that surrounds the grain) contains higher levels of antioxidants than blueberries.
Quinn Pretzels are now available in Whole Foods Rocky Mountain Region, Whole Foods Mid-Atlantic Region, Ralph’s stores (Southern California), MOM’s Organic Market stores (MA, NJ, PA, VA, DC), Amazon and Quinn’s online store. It will also be available in all Stop & Shop stores beginning November.
Most other gluten-free pretzels are made with GMO cornstarch as the first ingredient, due to ingredient cost cutting and manufacturing convenience. Quinn’s pretzels are made from ingredients like whole grain sorghum and organic honey. Offered in two varieties, Touch of Honey and Classic Sea Salt, they are pretzels with a unique ingredient make-up.
As with all Quinn products, the farm-to-bag transparency portal allows consumers to see where every ingredient comes from and learn about the growers and suppliers.
