Garden of Eatin’ makes food with natural and organic ingredients. The company was founded almost 35 years ago by Al Jacobson, who let his spiritual side guide him to start his own company of healthy food. He decided to use blue corn chips. Garden of Eatin’ foods has four lines of foods: Deliciously Dippable, Bursting With Flavor, Heartily Wholesome, and Meal Makers. The Deliciously Dippable line has chips that are perfect for dips and salsas. There are varieties that have blue corn chips, red corn chips, white corn chips, and yellow corn chips. The Bursting With Flavor line has all kinds of flavored chips, including Nacho Cheese, Bold: Maui Onion, Red Hot Blues, Bold: Three Pepper, and many more. The Heartily Wholesome line has chips made with whole grains or multigrains. Some have sea salt. The Meal Makers include their Original Bible Bread, whole wheat tortillas, taco dinner kits, and blue or yellow corn shell tacos. You can order Garden of Eatin’ products through their website. The prices range from about $4.00 to around $8.00.
Foods that are organic are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation. Organic foods are GMO free. Not all of Garden of Eatin’ foods are gluten free. They suggest that those who have celiac disease or a gluten allergy or intolerance check the ingredients before they eat. Whole grains are said to reduce the risk of stroke, type 2 diabetes, heart disease risk, and better weight maintenance. Multigrain foods are a good way to get some fiber into your diet. This company does not add MSG to their products. Some people have an intolerance to MSG. Garden of Eatin’ is part of The Hain Celestial Group, which has its headquarters in Boulder, Colorado. Garden of Eatin’ has four key goals: healthy products, healthier environment, healthier packaging, and healthier communities.
