FAQ's

Why Kay’s Naturals?
At Kay’s Naturals they have surveyed the vast landscape of so-called nutritious foods and determined that the missing link is a Better Balance of protein, carbohydrates, fiber and fats. Kay’s all-natural, gluten-free line seeks to fill this gap with food that has a healthy balance of great taste, low calories, lean soy protein, zero cholesterol, lower carbohydrates and fiber. Their foods also provide a complete amino acid profile.

A recent study from Harvard Medical School found that most gluten free products currently available in the market place are high in starch and that many gluten-free formulations lack essential nutrients.

How is Kay’s Naturals different?
Kay’s Naturals has chosen to focus on a healthier balance of ingredients:

  • 100% gluten-free
  • 30 - 35% natural soy protein
  • 10 - 18% healthy fats
  • 10g - 12g fiber
  • 20 - 40% carbohydrates

Every 1-ounce (28g) serving has:

  • 9 -10g natural soy protein
  • 100 - 110 calories
  • 9g -13g carbohydrates
  • 1g - 3g fiber
  • Low saturated fats/no trans fats

Cost of Protein vs. Cost of Sugar and Starch
Most snacks and cereals are made of 80-90% starch and sugar. This is because starch and sugar are cheap. Protein, on the other hand, costs 15-20 times more than starch or sugar. Thus, most snack and cereal companies avoid using protein in their foods, and even when they use protein, it is only a small percentage (8-10%) of the final product.

In addition, all Kay’s Naturals foods are always free of artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors and preservatives.

Are your products run on a Gluten free line?
They are often asked why they claim to be gluten free then make a disclosure on some of their packaging that wheat and gluten are run on the same lines. In 2010, they converted their entire prodution facility into wheat free & gluten free lines. Previously, the production facility made one product for another customer containing wheat that ran twice a year on the pretzel line, which is why they make the disclosure on the package.

They test their products at an outside lab with each run. This enables us to also check for any cross-contamination that may have happened before the raw ingredients reached their facility. They have had this testing program in place for a number of years and the products have tested gluten-free each time.

Once the facility was entirely wheat and gluten free, they became Gluten Free Certified by the Certified Gluten Free Organization (CGFO). GFCO is under the umbrella of the Gluten Intolerance Group, also known as GIG. Their products are also kosher certified under Orthodox Union (Circle U). As they order new packaging, the CGFO seal will appear on the package and "wheat" will be removed from the list of allergens. The wheat warning will still continue to appear on packaging already in stock until the old packaiging has been used.

About Kay's Naturals
We are dedicated to bringing to you, our customer, better alternatives to traditional snacks and cereals. Made with a better balance of soy protein, fiber, carbohydrates, and good fats, our products are delicious and uniquely satisfying snacks and cereals that can actually help curb the appetite, whether at home, at work, or at play.

The origins of Kay’s Naturals come from love.
Kay’s Naturals products were developed by Dr. Massoud Kazemzadeh (known as “Dr. Kay”) for his first wife Linda, a juvenile diabetic.

After receiving his Ph.D. in food science from Texas A & M University in the 1980s, Dr. Kay and Linda moved their young family to Minneapolis where Dr. Kay worked with several Fortune 500 companies in developing new snacks and cereals for the consumer market.

He was often concerned about the nutritional quality of the products he helped develop as they were nutrient poor – high in carbohydrates, but low in fiber and protein. After years of seeing his wife suffer with her illness he knew the marketplace offered few options for people with diabetes. A diabetic friendly diet is a reduced carbohydrate diet. All products in the snack and cereal markets – loved by consumers for their convenience – were mostly, if not all carbohydrate.

Sharing his thoughts with Linda, they developed the idea of starting a company that would make the snacks and cereals that consumers love in a healthier format: more protein and fiber. They registered the name “Kay’s Naturals” with the state of Minnesota and wrote a business plan. Dr. Kay began testing product prototypes. Sadly, just at this time, Linda’s diabetes took a turn for the worse and she passed away from complications related to diabetes in 1997.

After Linda’s passing, Kay’s Naturals would lay dormant for the next few years, but Dr. Kay and Linda’s dream was always present for him. He understood the food choice disadvantages facing people with diabetes and was committed to pursuing the plan he and Linda had worked so hard to develop. Eventually, Dr. Kay would marry Ann Jones, an attorney from Texas.

Understanding the importance of Linda and Dr. Kay’s dream , Ann would eventually take over the company and pursue marketing products for Kay’s Naturals. Dr. Kay would continue to develop light crunchy snacks and cereals that mimic popular consumer products with a healthier nutritional profile of approximately 33% soy protein, 10% fiber and 57% net carbohydrates. Today Kay’s Naturals sells a dozen products – 3 cereals, 4 snacks, 3 pretzels and 2 cookies. With a food scientist at the helm, Kay’s Naturals is always developing new products.

Once the original product – Protein Chips – launched, Dr. Kay and Ann found that people with diabetes were not the only ones looking for products higher in protein and lower in carbohydrates. Athletes, body builders, individuals who have had weight loss (bariatric) surgery were among the groups that quickly responded to the company’s products. With the epidemic of obesity on the rise, Kay’s Naturals is committed to offering healthier, nutrient rich snack & cereal options to consumers. Eventually Dr. Kay found a wheat-gluten free formula worked very well for the products and the line has been wheat-free & gluten free since January 2009.

Products containing soybeans, dairy and tree nuts are manufactured on the same production line as this product.

I was hoping these would be better...they aren't as good as other Kay's naturals products i tried. I have celiac and eat gluten-free products all the time. I also try to eat a low carb, high protein diet, so my standards are...i guess I would say realistic. They aren't very sweet, and have a pretty bland flavor. They aren't "filled" with almond butter --there isn't any filling in the middle--they just have almond butter in the batter. I think the almond butter is what gives them a greasy texture. I didn't like eating them by themselves at all, but took a suggestion i read in another review, and ate them as cereal, with almond milk. This helped, but they are still bland and oddly greasy. For a crunchy sweet thing, I liked Kays cinnamon toast pretzels better.

Being a Bariatric patient and not being able to find many things that taste good this is a real treat. these cookies satisfy the crunch you want and the sweet cinnamon taste. I buy them by the case so I don't run out!
