About RockIt Snacks

"I am a chef by trade with over 20 years in the food industry. With RockIt Snacks I wanted to create a highly nutritious plant-based seed snack that had all the flavor and snackability that delicious crunchy snacks have but without all the bad that can come with those kinds of foods. Following various Paleo, W30 and Keto lifestyles one thing I always found lacking was something to crunch on. Seeds and nuts are widely known for their health benefits but fall short on innovation specific to the format they are offered in. With RockIt Snacks I landed on pumpkin seeds because of the many superfood attributes they naturally have. Pumpkin seeds have never been highlighted as the main attraction in a crunchy snack format, so RockIt Snacks Crunchy Coated Pumpkin Seeds were born."

Our Mission

RockIt Snacks makes nutrient rich foods in first to market formats to give everyone the freedom to snack and the energy to RockIt!


Why Pumpkin Seeds Are the Hero and at the center.

Humans have known the importance of pumpkin and the seed for over 8 thousand years

Pumpkin can be found in six continents around the world – but its true home is Mexico. Calabaza is a pre-Hispanic crop that dates back more than 8,750 years. The ancient Aztecs enjoyed pumpkin seeds as a quick but satiating snack and the meat was roasted/dried into strips to eat. There is evidence that native American tribes used the seeds for medicinal purposes and the sap of the fruit to treat burns.

Nutritional Power-Plant.

Pumpkin seeds are a complete, plant-based protein containing all 9 of the essential amino acids which serve as the building blocks of protein and are vital for muscle regeneration and the development of lean body tissue. The vegetable protein rich seeds are a good source of healthy fats, dietary fiber, iron and antioxidants as well a wide variety of other vitamins, minerals and nutrients - Omega 3, Zinc, Copper, Phosphorus, Manganese, Magnesium, B Vitamins, Tocopherols, heart-healthy Plant Sterols, the “feel good” amino acid Tryptophan. The mighty pumpkin seed deserves to be recognized!

What makes RockIt CRUNCH!?!

Pumpkin Seed Protein - What is it?

We make pumpkin seed flour through a cold milling process. The cold milling allows 100% of the nutrition goodness in the seeds to remain intact. Our pumpkin seed protein makes up more than 50 percent of the blended gluten and grain free flours that create the nutritionally sound crunchy outer shell of RockIt snacks.

Cassava

Cassava is a starchy root vegetable (like potato/yams) indigenous to Brazil. It is cultivated in the tropical regions of South America and other tropical regions around the world. Sometimes called yuca or manioc – it is cooked, dried and milled into a fine flour that is nut flavored, gluten-free, grain-free, and paleo friendly. Cassava helps create the RockIt crunchy outer shell. We like it for its versatility and additionally recent research suggests that cassava is a gut friendly prebiotic that helps aid digestion. All good stuff!

Potato

Wild potato species can be found throughout the Americas, from the United States to southern Chile. They were domesticated approximately 7,000–10,000 years ago In the Andes region of South America, where they are indigenous. Potato starch – research suggests - has resistant starch properties that are a gut friendly prebiotic helping satiety and digestive health. We use a small amount to achieve our perfect crunchy textured outer shell.

Coconut

Native to the Philippines and originally a biproduct of coconut milk it is now valued and categorized as a grain free superfood. Coconut flour is gluten free, low carb and fiber rich with a semi sweet flavor. It has MCTs, it may promote stable blood sugar, and heart health and research suggest that coconut flour is a gut friendly prebiotic resistant starch that aids in digestion. We like It for all those reasons but most important it adds a nutrition bonus to RockIt Snacks crunchy outer shell.

Chicory Root

Chicory is a somewhat woody herbaceous plant of the dandelion family. Many varieties are cultivated for salad leaves, or roots which are baked, ground, and used as a coffee substitute and as a source of dietary fiber or a sugarless sweetener. Chicory thrives as a wild plant on roadsides in its native Europe and is now common in North America, China, and Australia where it has become widely naturalized. Chicory root is a source of soluble fiber because it passes through the body undigested. So, foods containing chicory root fiber may contribute to satiety after meals. It is considered a prebiotic, promoting healthy bacteria growth in the gut. We like the satiety and added fiber it provides to RockIt Snacks as well as the naturally semi sweetness that contributes to RockIt’s over the top flavors.

Avocado Oil

Harvested in Michoacan, Mexico, our avocado oil is extracted directly from the pulp surrounding the avocado pit to ensure the preservation of all nutrients. Some of the many benefits of avocado oil are Omega 6 and 9, Vitamin D and E, natural antioxidants and cholesterol free due its plant origin. It is lightly applied onto our coated seeds to roast to the perfect crunch and enhances the Sea Salt, Nacho and Ranch topical seasonings.

Gum Arabic

Gum arabic is a fibrous ingredient made from the natural hardened sap of wild Acacia trees. The tree is native to Sudan but also grows in several regions’ in Africa (Kenya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal). RockIt Snacks gum arabic is from the Vachellia (Acacia) tree. This species produces a dried gum from its trunk and branches. We like natural gum arabic for its binding/candy hardening ability that contributes to our unconventional crunch. It also is a top prebiotic food source that helps feed a healthy gut, aid in digestion, provides satiety and is considered an anti-inflammatory ingredient.

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.
