Our Story

Ellen and Michael first encountered flax crackers while enjoying a raw food buffet at Creative Health Institute in Hodunk, Michigan. Michael fell in love with the raw cracker and this inspired Ellen to recreate it in her own kitchen. She began making flax crackers for her family and they loved them also! As Ellen continued making flax crackers, she let her creativity shine with new combinations of flavors. These raw crackers became such a hit with the family that they all agreed they must be shared with the world!

So in the middle of 2002, Ellen, Michael, Matt and Tammy launched Foods Alive and introduced the first Certified Organic Raw Golden Flax Crackers in 4 awesome flavors: Original, Maple & Cinnamon, Italian Zest and Mexican Harvest. By using only the finest certified organic, vegan, kosher and gluten free ingredients, they created a simple healthy raw whole food that everyone could enjoy. They started offering their flax crackers to retailers and it did not take long for their delicious and healthy living food snacks to start flying off the shelves of health food stores around the country!

Today, Foods Alive offers their unique Raw Golden Flax Crackers in several wonderful flavors, produces a variety of raw Flax and Hemp based Gourmet Oils and Super Dressings, and an extensive line of organic raw Super Foods (chia seeds, maca powder, goji berries, etc...) to provide health conscious consumers with a more diverse nutritional experience.
