Newman's Own Organics - Organic Pretzel Mighty Minis - 7 oz. (198.4g)
Newman's Own Organics Organic Pretzel Mighty Minis are clever looking little pretzels, aren't they? Yes, and they taste great, too. "Pretzels were always Dad's favorite snack. That's why they started the company with them," says Nell. "It's amazing that pretzels have been around for over thirteen hundred years; maybe it's because they are so versatile. Many recipes can be found in cookbooks or on-line that use them. They can be crushed for a pie base, eaten with dips of all kinds, added to nuts, dried fruit and cereal for homemade trail mix, coated in melted chocolate (fun to do with kids), or just a quick, healthy snack."
They have a perfect pretzel for every occasion. In fact they have ten varieties to choose from. And since they're baked (not fried), their pretzels make a great low-fat, healthy snack with only 1 to 1.5 gram fat (no trans-fat).
The Rounds come in Salted and Unsalted, and the Minis include Spelt, High Protein, Honey Wheat and the Mighty. Spelt has a light, slightly sweet, nutty flavor. With a stronger outer hull than either oats or wheat it seems to keep more of the nutty grain taste and good nutrients locked inside. By using yellow pea flour in their High Protein, they were able to create a pretzel with 5 grams of protein per serving. Sticks are available in Salted, Thin and for those who have requested a thicker stick, Rods. Their old style pretzel rods forced us to revise an old adage: "Don't spare the rods. Spoil the child!" Their pretzels are all certified organic by Oregon Tilth.
It's a pretty common question. Here are the basics. They've also provided an explanation of what Oregon Tilth certification means. (All Newman's Own Organics products are certified organic by Oregon Tilth .) The materials below were developed by the USDA National Organic Program in 1994 and serve as a general outline of the definition of Organic as it will be used in the United States.
Organic agriculture is a holistic system with the primary goal of optimizing the health and productivity of interdependent communities of soil life, plants, animals, and people. Management practices are carefully selected with an intent to restore and then maintain ecological harmony on the farm, its surrounding environment and ultimately the whole planetary ecosystem.
The Organic Farm Plan is central to demonstrating progressive improvement of practices and measuring evolution of the management system as a whole towards greater sustainability. In this context, record- keeping is a key management tool for identifying problems and successful adaptations. Management changes should be evaluated in light of the principles described below.
Organic production systems seek to provide food, fiber and herbal products of the highest quality in sufficient quantities.
