Why You’ll Love Spelt Pretzels
Spelt is an ancient grain that has been untouched by modern industrial agriculture. A distant cousin to wheat, spelt contains gluten, making it a great alternative ingredient for breads and other baked goods. With a bite of a Newman's Own Organics Spelt Pretzels it proves spelt’s ability to take the place of wheat without compromising flavor or texture.
Along with its delicious, slightly nutty taste, spelt has many health benefits including fiber, and minerals like copper, zinc, and phosphorus. Compared to modern wheat, it boasts higher levels of essential fatty acids, and vitamins such as niacin. While the presence of gluten means it is not a suitable food for people with celiac disease, studies have shown that many people with wheat sensitivities and inflammation respond well to spelt products.
Newman’s Own Spelt Pretzels are made using certified-organic, vegan ingredients, and are bagged in non-BPA packaging. Enjoy them with your favorite dip or as a grab-and-go treat!
Health benefits of spelt
Fiber: Each cup of spelt has 19 grams of fiber, an essential component of any healthy diet.
Iron: At 8 milligrams of iron per cup, spelt has high levels of this mineral.
Riboflavin: Spelt is an excellent source of riboflavin (vitamin B2), a water-soluble nutrient that must be replenished in the body each day.
Niacin: Also known as vitamin B3. Spelt contains nearly a whole day’s USDA allowance of this vital nutrient.
Spelt vs. Wheat
Easier to Digest: Although spelt contains gluten, it is easier to digest than wheat. Spelt’s gluten is water-soluble, fragile, and degrades upon mixing or with heat. Many people who have trouble digesting wheat, such as those suffering from celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome, or have issues with inflammation, often find spelt to be a food that agrees with them.
Lower glycemic Index: Spelt flour has a glycemic index of 54, whereas whole wheat flour has a glycemic index of 72.
Higher omega-3s and 6s: Spelt has nearly double the milligrams of omega-3 fatty acids and nearly 50 percent more omega-6 fatty acids than wheat.
Vitamin K: Compared with wheat, spelt has twice the vitamin K.
New ways to enjoy pretzels:
Whether dipped in cheese or mustard, or eaten alongside a cold pint of beer, everyone has a go-to way to enjoy pretzels. Here are a few recipes that add a new twist on a classic snack:
Dark Chocolate-Covered Pretzel Bites
Melt 1 bag of dark chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon of heavy cream over a double boiler.
Next, pour 1 package of Newman's Own Organics Spelt Pretzels in a plastic bag, seal, and lightly crush with your hands or a rolling pin. Add the crushed pretzels to the chocolate, spoon by the tablespoon onto a sheet of waxed paper, and chill overnight. Mix and match flavor profiles, either by adding 1 cup of shredded coconut to the mix or lightly sprinkling the bites with Himalayan sea salt before chilling.
Spelt Pretzel-Crusted Chicken
Just because you don’t eat wheat doesn’t mean you have to miss out on crispy “breaded” chicken. Use a rolling pin to crush one bag of Newman's Own Organics Spelt Pretzels in a sealed plastic bag.
Pour the pretzel crumbs onto a plate, and mix in 1 tablespoon of Simply Organic Italian Seasoning, salt, and pepper. Place next to a bowl containing Organic Spelt Flour and a third bowl containing two eggs whipped with a fork.
Using one hand for “wet” ingredients and the other for “dry ingredients, dip uncooked chicken tenders in each of the three bowls, starting with the egg wash, before placing on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Mist with Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray , and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 mintutes. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

Best tasting pretzels ever!
These are the best tasting pretzels I have ever had. I am about to order them for the third time! Super crunchy and tasty!
Spelt Pretzels, YUMMY!
These are great pretzels. Frankly, I cannot tell the difference in taste between these and regular pretzels. Nor can my husband; but I had to get him some regular ones so he stayed out of mine! This is a great price, too. I was paying $3.99 at Whole Foods for the same bag.
The pretzel for people who thing they hate pretzels
I hated pretzels until I met Newman's spelt pretzels. They are a perfect snack, and-- given Newman's philanthropy-- I just think these are a no-brainer for anyone planning a party or needing a lunchbox filler. They're so tasty, crisp, and light, I can't believe I'm recommending a pretzel, & yet I am.
These are a wonderfully crunchy low calorie snack. It has a subtle nutty taste and are not too salty.
These pretzels are your basic hard pretzel. Crispy, tasty, slightly salty. I had them dipped in Justin's Chocolate-hazelnut butter. #noregrets
Can't say enough about these pretzels. They are delicious and the price at Thrive is better than anywhere. My only complaint is that the bag is small and I eat them so fast that I have to ration myself. :-)
Delicious crispy little pretzels, with a minimal number of ingredients and just the right amount of salt. And it feels good to be having a snack that actually has good spelt flour - not just the usual bleached white flour that has no nutrients. Great product!
Love these pretzels
Tasty, crispy & addictive
Pretzels make me so happy!
One food I miss since going clean is pretzels,....no more! These are great! Good crunch, a little less salty than regular pretzels, but so worth it!
Great snack food.
These spelt pretzels are a great snack food for everyone. They can be enjoyed plain, with hummus or dip.
The perfect pretzel
The best pretzels on the market. Perfectly crunchy and not too salty.
Taste just like wheat pretzels, but without the gluten!! Reallyy good dipped in hummus!
Loved these! Plus, they're pretty high in fiber. Will buy more.
Excellent product...snack without guilt...good for you and yummy.
Love these pretzels!
I am a huge fan of pretzels, always have been. I'm on a strict candida fighting, sugarless diet. When I found this on thrive I immediately jumped at the thought of eating a delicious snack resembling my beloved favorite. These are awesome, no disappointment whatsoever!!!
- Cary Rhodomoyer
I love trying new things, and glad I tried these. My husband is picky, and even he liked them. DEF purchasing again...Lighter than regular pretzels, almost a cracker quality, but agree, wouldn't mind less salt.
Great tasting pretzels without all the garbage that conventional pretzels have...if you like pretzels, you'll like these!
I pack these in my husbands lunch everyday and he really enjoys them.
Best pretzels ever! I wasn't sure what to expect from these pretzels but they taste wonderful better than any pretzels I've ever had and they are good for you!
A wonderful alternative to pretzels that are filled with sugar and gluten, and other things you cannot pronounce! This product offers a delicious savory crunch in a moderately healthy snack. Bags are small, but munching a large handful each afternoon, they last us about a week.
These pretzels was surprisingly good. great flavor and does not taste like a salt lick like the ones in the store. I will be purchasing again.
These taste no different than any other pretzel, same great taste and they are much better for you. I will continue to order these from Thrive Market.
- Hanifah Nurtaj
Tastes like any other pretzel and goes well with chocolate.
A new to us favorite
We really liked these pretzels and will be buying them again!
It's hard to find organic pretzels and my daughter likes these. Also, the customer service department is very good, I needed to inquire about allergens so I could use these for a class snack.
Although these are less terrible that the high protein version, they still lack any flavor
Kids love them
My kids can't even tell the difference. Taste just like a Snyder's pretzel. Nice treat to have around the house. Wish it came in a bulk bag. They don't last long.
They are very good. Better than regular pretzels
Using sea salt instead of table salt would be a great improvement in my book.
- Thrive User
Good but too much sodium
I like the fact that these are natural pretzels made from spelt, which isn't all that different in flavor from wheat or oat. The pretzels are solid and a great healthy snack except for the sodium. Wish they could find a way to bring that 240mg per serving down under the 200s. Hard to stay healthy when you're ingesting that amount of salt.
- Eve H.
If you've never heard of spelt it's like wheat, but seems to have a sturdier texture. These pretzels are made from spelt, sunflower oil and salt, and that's just about it. They have a big, rich taste, and they will get you filled up in a few minutes of active eating. But you probably won't want to stop because they're that good. Newman's Own does a great job of mixing all natural and flavorful with a lot of their products, and this is no exception.
- Edward Herrera
These are delicious pretzels. Unlike pretzels that are non-organic, these actually have some great nutritionals behind them. Of course, they have a fair amount of sodium, but they also have 4 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein. You also get to eat quite a bit of pretzels for a single serving. In fact, the bag has 7 servings in the container, so that's quite a bit of delicious taste at once. These are yummy, and they have a nice and delicious crunch to them. Honestly, they taste like non-organic and "unhealthy" pretzels - except these are organic and healthy. I love them!
Hearty Taste, Very Filling
Spelt pretzels from Newman's Own are very filling. This is a good thing because it helps curb my appetite. Pretzels as an afternoon snack keeps me energized until dinner and beyond.
These pretzels have a unique taste to them. The only thing I don't care for is there seems to be too much salt for my taste. I'm not sure if it's me or the snack, but too much salt is not a good thing.
Glad to see Newman's Own pairing up with Thrive Market. Thrive saves me money on all my healthy foods, snacks and personal products!
- Casey Johnson
Great taste and made with organic ingredients.
These pretzels tastes great and they are made with organic ingredients. I love it because its Not too salty but not bland either. It is so filling and contains more fiber than regular pretzels too!
