Humble Beginnings of Foods Alive

Foods Alive is a family-owned and operated business that cares more about the quality of food and the effects of producing it on our planet than profiting for oneself. We sprouted to life in 2002 when the first seeds were sown by Ellen and Michael Moor, their son Matt and his wife Tammy. See how much they have grown over the years, check out their Timeline and Meet the Family pages.

It Started With Flax Crackers


Foods Alive began by making flax crackers. They fell in love with the health benefits of the flax crackers they first encountered back in 1999 while visiting Creative Health Institute in Union City, Michigan. This inspired Ellen to begin making flax crackers for her family, and everyone thought they were deliciously amazing and just too good to keep to themselves. So they decided to start sharing these organic, gluten-free, vegan, high fiber crackers with the world. As a result, they now have a variety of flavors to choose from.

Artisan Cold-Pressed Gold Flax Oil


In 2006, they introduced their very own artisan cold-pressed golden flax oil. Everybody thought that their gold flax oil tasted so buttery that they couldn’t believe it was flax. Eventually, they created artisan salad dressings using their cold-pressed oils. Their oils and dressings have always been the freshest and best-tasting on the market and they consistently beat the leading brands in blind taste tests. These dressings are so healthy that using them on one salad a day may provide you with all of your omega-3 EFAs.

Artisan Salad Dressings With Flax Oil


Foods Alive's golden flax oil dressings have also spread across the country changing the flax oil market from a boring supplement into a delicious dining experience. Finally, there’s a truly healthy, delicious salad dressing on the shelf, void of highly refined canola, soy and sunflower oils that everyone can enjoy, while getting their daily dose of omega rich EFAs! What better way for finicky children and adults to get their essential fatty acids?

Innovative Leader In Health Foods


Today, Foods Alive continues to be an innovative leader when it comes to producing truly healthy foods because no one does quality control on incoming organic seed the way that they do. They now offer numerous flavors of snack crackers, artisan salad dressings with flax, hemp, chia and sesame oils, artisan cold-pressed oils, an extensive line of superfoods, lip balm, and glass straws.
