Ingredients of these seed oil free pretzels
All the pretzels have nothing in their ingredients besides the following:
- Soda / Baking Soda
What kind of flour is in the pretzels?
Snyder’s pretzels use enriched flour, so they have added Iron and B vitamins. Some people want to avoid iron-enriched flour. Dr. Ray Peat, PhD is one of them and you can read what he had to say about iron here and choose for yourself. None of the brands but Snyder’s appear to have added iron in their flour but we are not 100% certain.
Unbleached flour in the pretzels
Martin’s, Uncle Jerry’s, and Uncle Henry’s pretzels all use unbleached flour. Unbleached flour has been exposed to fewer chemicals in the manufacturing process. Bleached flour on the other hand has likely been treated with potassium bromate, benzoyl peroxide, or even chlorine. (Source) Maybe it’s not a good idea to consume a lot of these.
Are these pretzels free of soy lecithin?
Yes, they all are. All of these pretzels have no emsulifiers like soy lecithin or sunflower lecithin. We suspect that most hard pretzels will not have these ingredients since they would probably not be needed in the manufacturing process.
Are these pretzels organic and free of pesticides?
Unfortunately we weren’t able to find organic pretzels that also had no seed oils. If you find some, please let us know!
What about other kinds of pretzels?
We’d love to find soft pretzels or chocolate-covered pretzels without seed oils but we haven’t been able to find these yet either. This would be harder to find due to soy lecithin in the chocolate and plenty of oil in the soft pretzels. You can always make your own at home of course!
