Snacks are never just snacks at Eden Foods. And it has always been that way.
Since opening in 1968, healthy, organic, and natural foods haven’t just been on the Eden’s menu — they’ve been the menu. The original business, Eden Deli, was among just a handful of places in America to find macrobiotic and organic food.
Eden Foods reviews that their roots are still reflected today. For more than 50 years, it has been a leader in the American market for macrobiotic Japanese food.
Today, much of their product line is sold in natural food stores and co-ops similar to the first Eden Foods store. And the company continues to take healthy food to the next level.
Americans don’t just like popcorn — they love it.
Consistently rated as the nation’s most favorite snack, popcorn is high in whole grain-derived natural fiber. At most processing companies, it can also be unhealthy, high in fat from butter, and loaded with salt. Popcorn at Eden is different.
The organic yellow popcorn seeds yield large kernels that are low in fat and calories and high in fiber. It’s a smart alternative to snacks that are traditionally bursting with sodium.
Popcorn is just part of the lineup that is a game-changer in the snack food industry. And it’s a huge industry. According to the NPD group, Americans eat around 386 billion snacks a year and 95% of adults in the U.S. say they eat at least one snack a day.
For many, snacks have become meals, taking the place of breakfast, lunch, or dinner instead of having a place between them. And Americans are now craving healthy snacks, with younger generations increasingly demanding more organic snack options, snacks like Eden Foods have long produced.
The Natural Way
Today, the company stands proudly by its unique and beneficial snack food line that’s an antidote for junk food and empty calories.
In Eden Foods’ hands, all snacks are high in protein, vitamins, fiber, and complex carbohydrates. They are all also notable for what they don’t have. All of the snacks are low in sodium and devoid of harmful additives, bad fats, and refined sugar.
Their snacks reflect a sea change in consumer snacking tastes. The snacks include handpicked and dried tar cherries, wild blueberries, and dried cranberries.
There’s a popular line of nourishing and filling seeds and nuts, from tamari roasted almonds and shelled pistachios to spicy pumpkin and sunflower seeds.
There are even more inventive fruit-snacking options, including three flavors of inventive seed, dried fruit, and nut mixes: quiet moon, wild berry, and spicy berry. Fruit snack lovers can find raisins as well as dried apples, apricots, and mango slices.
For those who like to snack on the go — and who doesn’t? — Eden thoughtfully offers both 1 oz. and 4 oz. pouches, in addition to 1 lb. and 10 lb. bags.
And, they offer products such as apple sauce and cinnamon muesli cereal, as well as different types of mochi. Because why should enjoying snack foods be limited to snack time?
