Q: Isn’t granola fattening, because it contains a lot of sugar and fat?
Depends on the granola. There are tons of granolas on the market that are loaded with sugar and fat. Chappaqua Crunch isn’t one of them. We put in only as much sugar as we need to make our granola taste good. Our granolas contain 4 grams of sugar per serving, which is equal to about 1 teaspoon. And our granolas are low in fat—two grams per serving. More important, Chappaqua Crunch Granolas are packed with complex carbohydrates, a source of long-lasting energy that helps you feel full for a long time.
Q: Why are there two serving sizes on the products?
Some people enjoy eating granola as a snack, while others eat it for breakfast. We’ve provided you with two serving sizes, the 30 gram snack size and the 55 gram full size serving, to make it easier for you to understand the nutrition in the serving size you use and to easily compare our product to others.
Q: Why do you believe that Chappaqua Crunch Granolas are some of the healthiest granolas on the market?
- Our products contain more oats per serving than any granola we have seen.
- Our products contain less sugar per serving than most granolas.
- Our products are all natural, and most are certified organic, with no trans fats, preservatives, or artificial flavors.
- Don’t take our word for it. Use our handy Granola Nutrition Calculator to compare Chappaqua Crunch and your favorite granola.
Q: Are your products wheat-free, nut-free or soy-free?
We do not use wheat in our granola or our baking facility.
Two of our products contain almonds. Our products are manufactured on equipment that processes tree nuts and we follow GMP (good manufacturing practices).
Q: Why are oats considered heart healthy?
Oats contain a form of soluble fiber called beta glucan which can aid in lowering cholesterol. In 1997 the FDA approved the first health claim for whole grains which was: “Soluble fiber from oatmeal, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.“
