Hi my name is Rich,
I started Rich Nuts because as a firefighter, I needed a protein-rich snack that could sustain me through my long shifts. I was determined to find a better option for myself and my crew. So I set out to create it with four goals in mind: it had to be nutritious, sustaining, delicious, and good for planet.
After I discovered that sprouting nuts made them more nutrient-dense and easier to digest, I started soaking nuts in water. However, this only made them soggy and unappetizing. So I worked to bring back their flavor and crunch by seasoning them with savory spices and dehydrating them at a low temperature. It was magic! The sprouted nuts were exceptionally crunchy and full of flavor.
During my breaks at the firehouse, I would make batch after batch, experimenting with different spice and nut combinations, and letting my fellow firefighters taste-test along the way. Soon I was getting orders from friends, family, and co-workers. It was then I decided I had to share them with the world and Rich Nuts was born.
To me, food is about more than nourishing the body, It’s about nourishing the land and farmers who grow it. From seed to shelf, my goal is to work closely to ensure every ingredient and every person along the supply chain is thought of and cared for. I hope you enjoy my sprouted snacks, and that my story inspires you to leave your own mark on the world.
