Quinn Snacks Classic Sea Salt Twists

Over the last few decades, the number of chemicals and preservatives added to our food has skyrocketed. With processed foods now making up nearly 60% of the average American diet. And even though such chemically-laden fare can be harmful to our health, the convenience factor has made them evermore pervasive on grocery store shelves. Which is why today’s conscious consumer should demand more information about the foods they buy. Answering the call, Quinn Snacks lives and breathes (and snacks) transparency by sharing exactly where their ingredients come from, down to the smallest detail. Their unique “farm to bag” transparency provides a batch number on each package that’s traceable back to the source of their ingredients, including where they came from, how they were grown and harvested, and even why they are included. For example, Quinn’s Classic Sea Salt Twists use healthier and sustainable whole grain sorghum flour as the main ingredient. By removing the unnecessary chemicals and GMO ingredients, each bag provides a delicious, naturally gluten-free snack alternative, while still delivering the same great taste and crunch of classic pretzels. So the next time you’re feeling snacky, consider for a moment where your food comes from and the resulting environmental or human impact of your choice. Through transparency and traceability we can begin to change negative manufacturing trends.
