A Review- Kraze Foods, Raw Flavored Nuts



Metro Detroit Mommy Blogger Theresa Walker - BeachBody Coach


This past weekend I had a chance to attend a farm to table event in Birmingham, put on by The Community House.  One of the vendors I had a chance to speak with, and sample some product, was Kraze Foods, head-quartered in Sterling Heights MI.  Kraze Foods makes gourmet flavored nuts, handcrafted in small batches to ensure superior quality.  The nuts are raw, organic, vegan, Non-GMO and gluten free.  They are also preservative free, have a small ingredient list with all words you can pronounce and have no artificial colors or flavors.  These nuts are perfect for a healthy snack at home or on the go.  

What is unique about Kraze Food’s nuts, is that they are raw from start to finish.  They are soaked and dehydrated for 5 days, which helps to neutralize enzyme inhibitors, activating beneficial enzymes to allow for easier digestion and absorption of nutrients.  How amazing is that?!  

In speaking with Kraze Food Co-Founders David Adinarayan (CEO) and Sheryl Burns (President), their passion and dedication for crafting high quality snacks shines through.  Kraze Foods LLC is a collaboration of two like-minded individuals with an appreciation for organic and flavorful food, as well as knowledge in raw food.  They work together to bring healthier snack alternatives to the public and to appeal not only to raw food enthusiasts, but also people of all walks of life. Their goal is to provide consumers with high quality, nutrition dense foods that are healthy and bursting with flavor.  

Choices are: 

Maple Mesquite Pecans which have a flavorful maple taste with just a hint of mesquite to compliment.  These were my favorites!  I think any nut lover would fall in love with these, my 5 year old son enjoyed them as well.  (Ingredients: Raw Pecans, Grade B Maple Syrup, Raw Mesquite Powder, Vanilla Extract, Ground Cinnamon and Raw Himalayan Salt)

Chocolate Orange Walnuts are a close second, they are coated with raw cacao rich in flavor topped with a touch of citrus.  These are perfect if you are looking for a sweet decadent treat but you want to eat something on the healthier side with nutritional benefits.  (Ingredients: Raw Walnuts, Raw Cacao Powder, Grade B Maple Syrup, Orange Zest, Vanilla Extract, Orange Juice and Raw Himalayan Salt)

Spicy Cashews are coated with zesty lime and cayenne, these are great for someone who is looking for something with a little spicy kick to it!  (Ingredients: Raw Cashews, Cold-Pressed Coconut Oil, Lime Juice, Lime Zest, Ground Cayenne, Chili Powder and Raw Himalayan Salt)

The nuts come in 1oz and 3oz packages, perfect size for snacking on the go, at the office or to accompany lunch.  Nuts are a great snack if you are looking for an energizing pick me up.  Kraze Food nuts are a great twist on a traditional nut, yet still healthy and flavorful.
