We produced our 10th Millionth soybean!! Celebrating our history and future

To celebrate our success in producing our 10th million soybean we wanted to share information on our New Goals for Expansion for 2013, our continued efforts to support Non-GMO farmers, and a look into why Roasted Soybeans didn’t seem like such a “Nutty” idea.

The Kornowske family tells the story that the idea of roasted soybeans seemed to hit them like, well, a Sack of Soybeans! During the winter of 1998 Mr.Kornowske was poised upon his tractor, preparing the fields for next years crop, when it hit him- why not roast these?! After a few years of research, and cooking up some tasty batches of roasted beans, the Kornowske’s are planning to go nationwide with their healthy snack.

Recently, with the increased buzz on food education, and a global push for Non-GMO products, the Kornowske’s are proud to support causes like The Organic & Non-GMO Report, Institute for Responsible Technology and maintain a commitment to providing families the safest soy products available.

Almost Nuts! can be found at a variety of stores in the Wisconsin area, but with our new expansion goals we recently launched a new website serving customers nationwide. The new online storefront will allow their healthy snack to reach consumers all over the country. New customers who would like to try a bag have now have the option of receiving a free bag at a reduced shipping and handling cost. Or they can go ahead and buy 8 bags to receive free shipping! Almost Nuts! is on a mission to get their healthy snack into the hands of families everywhere!

Darren Kornowske, founder and President of Almost Nuts! tells the public, “ I am so proud to put my name to this product. Our family has been working for years to perfect a tasty snack that is healthy for families, we hope you enjoy Almost Nuts! as much as we do.”

Let’s clear the air about Non-GMO soy based food!

According to the USDA, over 90 percent of soy produced in the US is genetically modified. Numerous studies prove that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) increase allergies, increases resistance to antibiotics, lower thyroid function, cause organ swelling (particularly the pancreas) and even cause cancer. Then there are high levels of glutamate, manganese, fluoride and aluminum along with toxic chemicals that food manufacturers use to process soy that toxify our bodies.Continue Reading

The colorful history of the soybean

Though soy fabrics never reached commercial fruition, all these efforts ushered in the age of plastics, and many parts of today’s cars are made from soybean derivatives, as are paints, enamels, inks, and soaps.
