Our sky high standards

We’re on a mission to change how food gets made, driven by science, our kids, and the desire to help parents bring home healthy nutrition.

At FoodNerd, we test for how processed the product is (A.G.E.s), nutrient density (phytonutrients, macronutrients) and safety (heavy metals, pesticides, and other contaminants).

How we test

Across all metrics, FoodNerd outperforms all its competitors with rigorous testing.

the high heat extrusion used to create most puffs can greatly reduce the nutrient content of essential, heat-sensitive vitamins and minerals

Macronutrients*

FoodNerd proudly holds the Clean Label Project's First 1,000 Day Promise and Purity Award certifications, setting new standards in the US food industry.

The First 1,000 Day Promise, designed for pregnant women and infants, establishes contaminant thresholds, aligning with European baby food regulations. Our commitment to ingredient quality and safety, recognized by the Purity Award, ensures our baby food products exceed market expectations by excluding pesticides and undergoing rigorous testing for toxic metals and plasticizers.

What we test for

Phytonutrients

In an industry-first collaboration with Dr. David Speed and Analytica Labs, FoodNerd is pioneering the quantification of phytonutrients. Found in the colors, flavors, and aromas of fruits and vegetables, the naturally occurring phytonutrients contribute to an individual’s overall well-being. Our dedication to your health goes beyond convention, ensuring you receive a full spectrum of antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immune-boosting properties through our products.

A.G.E.s

FoodNerd, in collaboration with the Anti-A.G.E.s foundation, revolutionizes food processing by creating minimally processed foods with the lowest levels of harmful Advanced Glycation End-Products (A.G.E.s). These compounds, formed during high-heat cooking, are linked to age-related diseases. Our focus on minimizing A.G.E. formation prioritizes your health, providing a delicious and nutritious experience that goes beyond traditional culinary boundaries.

Heavy Metals Testing

FoodNerd is committed to the highest standards of purity and transparency, and our dedication to these values is exemplified through rigorous testing for heavy metals. In collaboration with the Clean Label Project, we conduct comprehensive laboratory tests, ensuring that our products are safe from contaminants such as arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and lead. These screenings guarantee that our products meet stringent safety measures, providing you with confidence in the purity of every FoodNerd product.

Toxins Screening

As part of our unwavering commitment to quality, FoodNerd subjects its products to thorough testing for a wide range of toxins. Working closely with the Clean Label Project, we assess our offerings for various industrial and environmental toxins, including but not limited to BPA, antibiotics, mycotoxins, pesticides, acrylamide, and melamine. This dedicated screening process ensures that our products are free from harmful substances, upholding our promise to deliver a safe and wholesome experience for you and your family.

Contaminants Evaluation

At FoodNerd, transparency and purity are at the core of our values. To guarantee the safety and quality of our products, we collaborate with the Clean Label Project to evaluate them for contaminants. Through laboratory testing, we examine our offerings for 400+ contaminants and toxins, adhering to the highest standards of safety and quality. This comprehensive evaluation encompasses a wide range of potential contaminants, assuring you that FoodNerd products are held to the utmost standards, delivering a pure and trustworthy experience.

At FoodNerd, we're on a mission to redefine what kids eat today, tomorrow, and in the future. We make a wide range of tasty foods, but underneath all that deliciousness, we’re also setting new standards for nutrient density. We believe that parents should never have to compromise their children's well-being because of busy schedules or a lack of great pre-packaged options. That's why we've dedicated ourselves to creating nibbles that are positively brimming with the goodness of nature’s best ingredients.

Our secret? Through meticulous research and development, we've harnessed a groundbreaking method (we call it Nutrient Lock Cold Processing) that preserves the natural vitality of fruits, vegetables, and sprouted seeds, ensuring that up to 98% of the nutrients remain intact. This also means that we don’t need to add any “filler” ingredients that cancel out the benefits of the best nutrients. We think it’s pretty remarkable science, but the most exciting bit goes beyond the nutritional excellence — our favorite part is that our kids love to eat something that’s so good for their future selves.

Our products are designed to seamlessly fit into the ups and downs of parenthood. Whether it's snack time on the go, or dinner time where you’re like “where did the day go?” our healthy creations are there to support you. At FoodNerd, we believe that the healthy growth and development of our kids should go hand in hand with scientific rigor, tasty delight, and the kind of love for little ones that would make one stop at nothing in the pursuit to revolutionize how food gets made for the next generation.
