You have questions. We have answers!
Why are your snacks more nutritious than typical snacks?
Every Extraordinary Snack begins with a foundation of sprouted nuts. Sprouting (seed germination) releases the full nutritional profile of nuts (aka, seeds) and makes them easier to digest. Once we’ve boosted the vitamins, minerals and amino acids of our nuts, we gently dehydrate them so they remain as enzymatically potent as possible. We combine these sprouted nuts with fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices for truly flavorful, nutrient dense, protein-packed snacks.

Do all Extraordinary Snack products contain nuts?
Currently, all of our snack foods contain tree nuts and/or seeds, but no peanuts. If you’re allergic to tree nuts (including walnuts, pecans, cashews, Brazil nuts, almonds and coconuts), we recommend avoiding our products.
Are your products gluten-free?
Absolutely! We never use any types of grains, fillers or gluten in our products.
Are your snacks sugar-free?
While we don’t use refined sugar in our products, we do rely on small amounts of agave, maple sugar, coconut nectar, and dates for sweetness, as well as the natural sugars present in the fruits and vegetables we use. Thus, our products have a lower glycemic index, but they are not sugar-free.
Are any of your products “raw”?
This one’s tricky. When making our snacks, we use raw, unprocessed ingredients including raw, sprouted nuts. To assure safety, we dehydrate our batches at temperatures above 118°F which means we cannot label our products as raw.
You mention your products are “clean” food. What does that mean?
While there are several definitions, “clean foods” generally means healthy, whole foods that are minimally processed, nutrient-dense (no empty calories), and free of refined sugars, additives and artificial ingredients.
How should your snacks be stored?
Our resealable packaging includes a clear lining with a PET barrier to protect your stash from unwanted moisture, which makes it perfect for snacks on the go. For longer storage, we recommend popping these babies in the refrigerator or freezer.
How long do your snacks last?
If you’re like most people, you’ll devour our goodies long before their “best by” date. But just in case:
