These days, you can find just about every kind of nut butter on the market from cashew to hazelnut. Contrast that to just a few years ago when the options were pretty limited to just peanut and almond. That’s when NuttZo founder Danielle Dietz-LiVolsi decided it was time to get a little nutty herself and create a mix all her own. Blending together seven nutrient-packed nuts and seeds, NuttZo has grown to amass a cult-like following and is available by the jar, in convenient travel packs, or even in bar form with additional good-for-you ingredients like matcha and probiotics. We don’t mean to spread it on thick, but if you’re looking to shake up your nut butter game, it’s time to get nuts with Nuttzo.
The History of NuttZo
NuttZo was first inspired by founder Danielle Dietz-LiVolsi’s first son, Gregory. Gregory was a Ukrainian orphan and LiVolsi was concerned about providing her son with a diet rich in the nutrients he was lacking. When she decided to incorporate nut butters into his diet, she realized there weren’t many available with the organic nutrients she was after so she decided to make her own. She loaded her blends with superfoods like flax seeds, cashews, almonds, sunflower seeds, and vitamin E tocopherols, and before she knew it, she ignited a nut butter sensation.
NuttZo Company Mission
NuttZo started with a desire to make a delicious, nut-based spread that everyone could enjoy. The concept was simple: low-sugar, nutrient-dense, and delicious. But the brand has since evolved to add an additional layer to their philosophy: heart. Every product NuttZo sells support its nonprofit, Project Left Behind, helping neglected and orphaned children in India, Peru and Nepal.
