Crum Creek Mills recently sent me a selection of their products to try out. I got the chance to try their soy protein pastas, soy nut trial mix, and Almond Biscuties. Crum Creek Mills was created by Ara Yeramyann, PhD. As a gourmet cook and scientist, he’s used his passion to create nutritious food.
But first, let’s talk a little about soy. As a vegetarian, I eat a lot of soy products, but I only eat organic or certified GMO-free soy products. That’s because the regular soy crops have been heavily modified. It’s a personal choice that I’ve made and that I feel strongly about.
Secondly, soy is somewhat controversial. Some studies show that it causes digestion issues in some people, thankfully I’m not one of them. Or that causes hormonal changes, which I do believe it might, since menopause has been a breeze for me unlike the other women in my family.
Crum Creek Mills Soy Foods
All that said, I believe any food is good for you in moderation, so enjoy some soy! Crum Creek Mills offers some fabulous soy foods, especially the Almond Biscuties. These crispy cookies are packed with fruits and nuts and so delicious! At $4.50 a package, they’re a wonderful treat.
I also fell in love with the Crum Creek Mills Soy Nut Trail Mix. It’s a blend of sweet and salty bites with a variety of shapes and textures. I love that they’re individually packaged because I would eat much more than a serving if not – they’re that good! Priced at $8.90 for a package of 10, they are organic and GMO-free.
My final taste test was the Crum Creek Mills Soy Protein pastas. I tried the fettuccine, angel hair, and linguini. You cook and serve these just like you would standard wheat pasta, but don’t overcook them. They have a slight soy aftertaste that I noticed, but my husband had no idea he was eating something other than “normal” pasta. These non-GMO, protein-packed pastas are $4.50 per package.
Crum Creek Mills products can be purchased on the Crum Creek website along with a variety of other healthy products including bath and body, gifts, beverages, supplements, and snacks.
