Witzi’s Raw Granola

Beyond Basic Granola

A mother’s determination is the inspiration behind Witzi’s Raw Granola. When a gluten and grain free granola, rich in nutrition wasn’t available for her young son, Amy Witzigreuter, mother, now founder and owner of Witzi’s Raw Granola created it. Founded in 2018, Witzi’s produces high-quality raw granolas, hand crafted with organic ingredients. Uniquely different from the rest.

Witzi’s Raw Granola produces raw, organic, grain & gluten-free granolas. While Witzi’s Raw Granola was founded in 2018, Amy Witzigreuter has been making it for over a decade. In an effort to provide nutrient-dense snacks to her children, Witzigreuter developed the recipe and it soon became a family favorite. In 2018, Witzigreuter decided it was time to bring the product to market.

Why It Matters - Soaking

Raw nuts and seeds contain moderate amounts of phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors. This is nature’s way of preventing sprouting until conditions are just right. Phytic acid becomes phytate when bound to a mineral. This can be problematic in the human body and lead to difficulty with digestion and nutrient absorption. Pre-soaking with salt water, breaks down the phytic acid making the nutrients more available to the body.

Dehydrating

Dehydration removes moisture, and minimizes the ability for bacteria to grow. This is a natural preservation method. Dehydration dates back to biblical times, when preserving food was necessary to survive long periods without food sources. Dehydrated foods maintain almost 100% of the nutritional content as their original raw source. Almost no Vitamin C is lost in dehydration, and all Vitamin A and Beta Carotene in plant foods is retained. Minerals including selenium, potassium and magnesium are preserved as well.

 

Organic

There are numerous reasons to eat organic foods. Avoiding the myriad of chemicals used in commercially produced foods is one of the most compelling. Buying organic foods is the only way to ensure genetically modified products stay out of your body. Plus, organic foods have more nutrients. On average, organically grown foods provide: 21.1% more iron (than their conventional counterparts); 27% more vitamin C; 29.3% more magnesium; 13.6% more phosphorus. And, no surprise, organic foods taste better.

Grain Free

Grains aren’t the same as they were decades ago. Prior to modern milling, it was not possible to separate the components of the grain. Flours were made from grains ground in whole form. Today the bran and germ can be removed, which increases the shelf-life of the flours but decreases the nutritional value. Along come new wheat cultivation methods which increase production and overall availability but are unfortunately, result in even less nutritious flours. There is reason to suspect pesticides play a role in the increase in grain intolerance. Beyond that, improvements in both gut health and overall well being is well reported by those who have eliminated grains, and incorporate gluten free choices.

Maple Syrup

Maple syrup is an alternate sweetener to sugar and sugar substitutes. Maple syrup is plant-based. It is a vegan sweetener; made perfect, naturally. The sugars in maple syrup are primarily from sucrose, a complex sugar your body slowly breaks down, thus the lower glycemic index. In addition maple syrup contains potassium, manganese, iron, calcium, and zinc. These along with natural sodium, make maple syrup an ideal option for endurance athletes.

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.
