LesserEvil Snacks

We’re serious about being mindful. And as you can tell, we’re also serious about snacking. Nothing goes into our popcorn, paleo puffs, or egg white curls that we wouldn’t feed our own families. That’s our mantra and it’s 100% the truth.

Ingredients Mean Everything

Making food the right way takes work, but we don’t lose our Zen over it. We embrace it by being one with our own snack factory in Danbury, CT. We only manufacture the highest quality snack products while only using ingredients that are healthy, organic and/or sustainable. Every ingredient has a purpose; fewer is better than more.

When we choose to create a real shift in the world, happiness results. That’s why LesserEvil is committed to working with organic farmers in the US and abroad, to take steps towards a more sustainable approach to farming and manufacturing food.

 

 

Certified Products:

Paleo Puffs - Himalayan Pink Salt

Unstoppably popable. Our Himalayan Pink Salt puffs are tumbled in coconut oil and dusted with Himalayan Pink salt on a grain-free puff.

Paleo Puffs - Himalayan Salt & Apple Cider Vinegar

Looking for a unique new flavor in your snacks? We now introduce you to apple cider vinegar. Our classic Himalayan Salt is paired with it, and the result is a tangy puff that pleases your taste buds—and your body.

Paleo Puffs - 'No Cheese' Cheesiness

Want legendary cheesy flavor without the guilt—and the side effects? These are the puffs for you. Organic, non-dairy seasoning brings the cheesy flavor and leaves the cheesy baggage behind.

Paleo Puffs - Honey Roasted

The kiss of honey is an alluring thing, but our Honey Roasted puffs let you indulge in a healthy way. A kosher, vegan and certified Paleo mainstay in your pantry.

Egg White Curls - Egg + Cheese

We’re big on cheese around here, but we’re equally skipping the guilt and the side effects that come with dairy. Our cheesy seasoning is organic and dairy-free, and you’re free to sample again and again.

Egg White Curls - Himalayan Pink Salt

Our classic flavor is just as unforgettable on curls as it is on popcorn and puffs. Tumbled in organic avocado oil and Himalayan salt for the perfect crunchy treat.

Egg White Curls - Huevos Rancheros

The breakfast favorite, now in a bag. Our take on this classic desayuno dish provides just the right amount of spice in every egg white curl.

 

Lesser Evil A Health Food Brand that is Embracing Multifaceted Sustainability

Charles Coristine, CEO/Founder

LesserEvil: Greater Food, Greater Good

LesserEvil was founded in 2005 with the goal of making iconic American snacks better for you. The first products included potato puffs (instead of chips) and indulgent kettle corn that was still low-carb.

In 2011, the current owners took the reigns to discover what LesserEvil meant to them. Their new vision was to provide the community with snacks that were not only lower in fats and calories, but also made with real, quality ingredients.

In 2012, the LesserEvil factory was born. By opening our own manufacturing facility, we were not only able to source better ingredients, but also to control the integrity of our products while providing local factory jobs.

By seeing the company as a large extended family, we felt very strongly about providing an integrated message about the potential and discovery of LesserEvil.

It took years to fine-tune our approach and in doing so we became a much better company and people, too. There isn’t a single product that we produce that we don’t think has the best possible ingredients.

Our mantra around food is that we would not put anything in our foods that we wouldn’t feed our own children.

We’re trying to make our world less evil by creating deeper connections with people, the planet and real, organic food.

So there you have our recipe for life: clean ingredients for what we hope is a down-and-dirty- smash-em-up beautiful life.

I have heard that people hide bad ingredients in the ‘natural flavors’ component of the ingredients. What is in your natural flavors?

Answer: We don’t hide anything in our natural flavors. They are a proprietary blend of extracts from organic and/or naturally occurring sources.

Are LesserEvil products gluten-free? Are you certified gluten-free?

Answer: Yes, all of the snacks that we produce are gluten-free, however, we are not certified gluten-free. While none of our products contain gluten, we still do our own testing to reconfirm our gluten-free status.

If the majority of the LesserEvil products are dairy-free, why is the Kosher certification OU-D?

Answer: While the majority of LesserEvil products do not contain dairy ingredients, they may be produced on equipment that also produces dairy products. The D designates that it was heated on equipment also used for dairy, however, we follow strict guidelines for thorough cleaning to prevent any cross-contamination.

Are LesserEvil products kosher?

Answer: All LesserEvil brand products are certified Kosher OU-D and our cookie line is certified through Star-K Pareve.

Are LesserEvil products dairy-free?

Answer: The majority of LesserEvil products are dairy-free. Only two of our products are not: Buddha Bowl Classic Cheddah and Oh My Ghee! organic popcorns.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
