Severe Nut Allergy Leads To Creation Of Seed-Based Snacks

May 4, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
An acute reaction to eating nuts that landed Nicole Ledoux’s future husband in the ER led her to develop safe-to-eat allergen-free seed bar snacks. The eventual result was the launch of Allston, Mass.-based 88 Acres, which originally marketed a line of snack bars made with pumpkin, sunflower, and flax seeds. They later added dense seed butters – pumpkin, vanilla spice sunflower, and dark chocolate sunflower. The company now has two new lines: Seed' Nola, like granola, but made instead with abundant clusters of seeds and gluten-free oats in flavors such as Triple Berry Blend, Ginger Apple, and Double Chocolate Sea Salt. The products are available at Whole Foods Market locations and at 88acres.com.
