Our Cereal is Long-Baked for Maximal Crunch
Here's Why Crunchy is Better:
Keeps You Full Longer
Crunchy foods that are high in fiber and protein take up more room in your stomach, which means you stay full, longer.
Burns More Calories
Just like celery, when you crunch on Catalina Crunch, you burn calories in the process.
According to science, crunchy foods are more pleasurable to eat and thus your brain tells your stomach you are full sooner.
Boosts Your Energy
Crunching on Catalina Crunch gets your blood flowing to your jaws and brain, waking you up and boosting your energy.
Hi, I'm Krishna - Here's My Story
Like many kids, mainstream snacks and cereals were a memorable part of my childhood. There’s nothing I loved more than chocolate puffs for breakfast or a delicious sandwich cookie dunked in a glass of cold milk.
Unfortunately, when I turned 17, I was diagnosed with T1 diabetes and had to give up many of my favorite snacks since they are typically loaded with sugar and empty carbs.
I started eating Keto to help manage my blood sugar, but the few healthy options available tasted like cardboard. I got fed up! I wanted delicious snacks that would satisfy my cravings but weren’t loaded with all the sugar and empty carbs.
So in 2017, I started baking low carb versions of all my favorite snacks. My first creation was Catalina Crunch Dark Chocolate Cereal. Our early customers loved it so much they wanted a Cinnamon flavor, so I made that too. After two more years and a lot of fun in the kitchen, we've expanded to eight Cereal flavors and four flavors of Sandwich Cookies.
Eating our snacks makes me feel like a kid again. I am so proud of what we’ve created and I can’t wait to share our delicious snacks with you!
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the cereal Keto-Friendly?
Yes! For those on Keto, blend your 0g carb milk with 1 tbsp nut butter for even more fat. It's yummy!
Is the cereal Gluten & Grain Free?
Yes! We don't use any ingredients containing gluten or grain.
Is the Cereal Non-GMO?
Yes! All of our Cereal flavors are Non-GMO. Dark Chocolate, Cinnamon Toast and Maple Waffle are Non-GMO Project Verified.
Is the cereal Vegan?
Yes! Catalina Crunch Dark Chocolate, Maple Waffle, Cinnamon Toast, Fruity, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Chocolate Banana and Mint Chocolate Chip are 100% plant-based and packed full of pea-protein.
Yellow Pea Protein is rich in iron, arginine and branched-chain amino acids and offers benefits like improved muscle growth, feelings of fullness and heart health.
**Our Honey Graham Flavor is the only flavor that is NOT Vegan Friendly.
What are the ingredients?
Ingredient List: Catalina Flour (Pea Protein, Potato Fiber, Non-GMO Corn Fiber, Chicory Root Fiber, Guar Gum), Tapioca Flour, Organic High Oleic Sunflower Oil, Cocoa Powder (Chocolate flavors only), Baking Powder, Natural Flavors, Sea Salt, Calcium Carbonate, Stevia Extract, Monk Fruit (Cinnamon Toast flavor only)
We get quite a few folks who see the ingredient Potato Fiber and think “Potato Fiber = Potato”. They think: “since potato is high in carbs (starch), potato fiber must be high in carbs too”. This is not true!
Potato Fiber is made by grinding up a whole potato into potato flour and removing the starch (carbs) and protein, leaving mostly insoluble fiber. Since insoluble fiber is not digestible, potato fiber is thus Keto-Friendly and Low Carb.
Some customers have also been curious about the ingredient Non-GMO Corn Fiber. Catalina Crunch is Grain-Free because Corn Fiber is NOT the same thing as Corn! Corn is a Grain. Corn Fiber is not a Grain, it is a Prebiotic Fiber.
How big is the package?
Our Single Serve Variety Pack contains 8 pouches (1.27oz per pouch)
What milk should I eat this with?
If you are on Keto, we recommend Unsweetened Almond Milk - it has 0g carbs.
Do kids like Catalina Crunch?
Yes! We can't speak for all kids but the kids who've tried Catalina Crunch love it. It's a great alternative to the sugary big brand cereal options, and it will most definitely keep your kids fuller, longer.
Why is Catalina more expensive than Big Box cereal?
Most cereals are loaded with Genetically Modified Wheat and Sugar which are the 2 cheapest ingredients available. Wheat costs about $0.35/lb and sugar costs about $0.15/lb.
We only use high-quality, non-GMO ingredients which are much more expensive. Our Organic Pea Protein ingredient costs over $6.00/lb (~20x more expensive than Wheat!) and our Monk Fruit & Stevia (for subtle sweetness) costs us about $175/lb (~1,000x more expensive than sugar!).
