Foods Alive Organic CrackersFoods Alive Organic Crackers

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.
