    What is Super 4?

    At or coming to a supermarket near you, check out the new superhero snack food: Super 4. Available in 3 flavors of Cheesy Nacho, Kale & Roasted Garlic, and Roasted Red Pepper, this snack has all the taste and crunch you satisfy. A unique discovery of health and flavor that seriously stands out from the rest, Super 4 is power-full of ingredients like white beans, quinoa, lentils, and chia seed, among many others. Loaded with energy, clean ingredients, and alkaline so that it combats acidity, empower yourself with this super snack.

     

    White Beans are a fat-blasting, healthy carb that boosts metabolism and provides the body with multiple health benefits. Packed with antioxidants, fiber, and protein, White Beans rank low on the glycemic index and help regulate fat storage in the body. White Beans also deliver a good supply of magnesium and help detoxify your body.

     

    Quinoa is the Supergrain we should all be eating. Containing almost twice as much fiber as most other grains, and all nine essential amino acids, Quinoa helps prevent heart disease, lower cholesterol, and may help you lose weight. It makes you feel fuller, longer, and is one of the most protein-rich foods we can eat. What’s not to love?!

     

    Lentils and chia seeds are two super ingredients to our Super 4. Lentils are low in calories, high in nutrition, and can be incorporated into hundreds of easy meals.  Like quinoa, lentils help reduce blood cholesterol and heart disease. They promote heart health by being a great source of folate and magnesium. Lentils help regulate digestive issues, and stabilize blood sugar by slowing down digestion and keeping blood sugar controlled.  Similar to all of the ingredients listed before, chia seeds are packed with nutritional goodness. Filled with omega-3 fatty acids, lots of dietary fiber, and calcium, chia seeds are the perfect tasteless topping. You can add chia seeds to salads, toast, or smoothies for an easy way to get the health benefits without any nasty flavor or taste.

     

    As always, LesserEvil Snacks stays away from all the bad things like Maltodextrin, Yeast Extract, Refined Sugar, gluten, corn, soy and anything else that could be genetically modified. This snack also stays away from all of the major allergens (except for the Cheesy Nacho flavor which does have cheese.) We steer clear of peanuts, dairy, eggs, shellfish, soy and nuts.

     

    As you can see, our Super 4 is certainly in a league of its own. Not only does it taste good, Super 4 is truly good for you. Did we mention the irresistible crunch? In 3 delicious flavors anyone can enjoy, Super 4 is your new powerhouse snack.

    Meet the Buddha

    What’s new at LesserEvil? We’re all about raising the bar in healthy snacks, and we’re committed to changing the way people think about snacking.  Gone are the days of feeling guilty or ashamed because you opened a bag of popcorn, and gone are the days of feeling heavy and uncomfortable after snacking. Himalayan Pink Popcorn is your new way to snack.

     

    We’re changing the snack game with our two newest popcorn lines, Buddha Bowl: Himalayan Pink and Himalayan Sweetness. This popcorn exemplifies the true meaning of simple snacking. Made with only 3 ingredients, there’s nothing inside this bag you can’t pronounce or understand. Made from Himalayan Mineral Salt, Organic Popcorn, and Organic Coconut Oil, Buddha Bowl is perfectly pure. Snacking should be easy, with no gimmicks, and that’s exactly what we’re going for.

     

    Himalayan Pink Mineral Salt is said to be the truest and purest form of salt on the planet. Packed with health benefits like the ability to strengthen bones and lower blood pressure, Himalayan Pink salt is prized for its healing and restorative powers. Himalayan Pink Salt fights aging, detoxifies the human body, and pumps your bloodstream with much needed minerals and other bio compounds. It’s no wonder we wanted to incorporate this power ingredient into our newest snack.

     

    At LesserEvil, we go Organic as much as possible. We’re dedicated to using only the highest quality ingredients. We look to simplify snacks with the purest, most natural ingredients, and we’re devoted to keeping our snacks unmodified, and free of any pesticides or chemicals. Organic foods are known to have more nutritional benefits than their conventionally grown counterparts, and help sustain a stronger, healthier environment.

     

    Our last ingredient of the three is Organic Coconut Oil. Known for its superfood qualities, Organic Coconut Oil is in a class of its own.  Coconut Oil works to keep weight balanced, fight off infections, and reduce cholesterol, to name a few of the many superpowers it possesses. A heart healthy food, coconut oil fills your body with antioxidants and healthy fats that make you radiate from the inside out.

     

    That’s it! Our Buddha Bowl Popcorn is an easy choice. We’re not afraid to show our ingredients, especially since there’s only 3. We want complete transparency between our company and our customers as to what goes into our snacks. Nothing left to guessing, everything’s out on the table, we’re purely good tasting and good for you.

     

    Check out our new Buddha Bowl Popcorn, and purify your cravings with this superfood.

    LesserEvil’s Earth to Table Quality Commitment

    With so many ingredients in foods these days, it’s hard as a consumer to know if what you are eating nourishes your body. At LesserEvil, we are trying to earn your trust by continuing to use only what is good for you and the planet. We start by sourcing foods that are non-genetically modified and we proudly certify. We then try to find organic ingredients if possible, and most importantly we look for foods that offer high target nutritional value. Once we have the ingredients we bake, never fry. We as a company also think that maltodextrin, yeast extract, refined sugar and gluten should not be part of something you feed your family and friends. Dedicated to high quality and pure ingredients, we pride ourselves on having an earth to table quality commitment.

     

    We’ve outlined a few of the bad ingredients we’re devoted to staying away from. We’re honest with our ingredients, because we have nothing to hide:

     

    Maltodextrin is a white powder made from rice, corn, or potato starch, and functions as a food thickener or filler. More and more natural foods are shying away from Maltrodextrin because it is believed to be somewhat artificial. It’s in everything from salad dressings, to snacks, to cereal. Some experience digestive issues when they’ve consumed Maltodextrin.

     

    Yeast Extract contains free glutamate, or MSG. Everyone knows to avoid MSG as much as possible, but some companies have found loopholes to avoid the label. MSG functions as a flavor enhancer and gives unhealthy foods an addictive quality to keep people coming back for more. We strive to keep our customers coming back for more without MSG, or any other dangerous ingredients. We’re completely MSG-free, no loopholes or deceiving labeling here.

     

    Refined Sugars have been linked to everything from weight gain to heart disease. Processed foods everywhere contain refined sugars, and lead to raised blood sugar, and a higher risk of diabetes among other chronic problems. People everywhere are trying to kick the sugar habit, and switch to healthier options. Refined white sugar is mostly sucrose, and contains no nutritional value, equaling empty calories. LesserEvil snacks contain no refined sugars, and we’re committed to staying that way.

     

    Every LesserEvil snack is Gluten-Free. Celiac Disease is on the rise, and can cause for some terrible discomfort. Gluten can be tough to digest for many, as there’s an alarmingly growing population of people with Gluten sensitivity. Gluten sensitivity causes for bloating, stomach pain and fatigue, and diarrhea. Packed with fiber, flavor, and crunch, our snacks are delightfully light, and safe for anyone with a gluten-free diet or celiac disease.

     

    We’re totally GMO-free. You won’t find any genetically modified organisms in any of our snacks. We’re committed to the NON GMO Project, and you can find us proudly labeled as such on each bag. More and more, GMOs are connected to health problems and environmental damage. There are restrictions or bans against GMOs in over 60 countries, but GMOs still find their way into as much as 80% of processed foods. You’ll never find GMOs in our snacks, and we’re proud to display our healthy ingredients.

     

    LesserEvil is committed to being truly empty-calorie free. With none of the bad stuff listed above finding its way into our products, you can eat our snacks without guilt, and know you’re being good to your body.  When you eat our snacks, you’re getting something in return. You aren’t just eating and consuming empty calories with no nutritional value or benefit. Free of artificial sweeteners, refined sugar, Gluten, Corn, Soy, and Maltodextrin, our products are the new class of snacks.
