Organic Status
100% of the brand's cereal and granola products are certified organic/by fully committed organic company

Lydia's Organics, an independent company based in California, was founded in 2001. Its organic granola is made by hand in Marin County and is available nationwide. Ingredients such as buckwheat and sunflower seeds are sprouted to release enzymes and make them more digestible, then tossed with other ingredients and dehydrated, making a raw product. In addition to sourcing exclusively from organic farmers, Lydia's Organics sources locally when possible.

The company is 100% organic because "We are committed to healing the planet and to providing food that is truly healthy," says founder Lydia Kindheart.
