Since all the equipment has to be thoroughly cleaned to run a batch of these pretzels, they are made only when orders total 100 lbs. You may have to wait a week or two for your order to be filled, but then they are always shipped fresh. The demand has increased considerably since the pretzels were mentioned in the PKU News and many persons with PKU are ordering them by the case. So they are being made more frequently. Leucine is 12 mg/oz. and protein is .13 g/oz. Each pretzel weighs about 18 gm or a little more than 1/2 oz.
Delicious regular pretzels are also available. If you order enough pretzels to fill a case, you can reduce the shipping costs. It pays to fill out your order with regular pretzels if you just want to order a few low protein pretzels to try. Expect some breakage in shipment. The low protein pretzels break easily because they do not contain gluten.
The cost of low protein pretzels (prices subject to change):
- 8 oz. bag is $1.85 9 (8 oz.) bags/case is $16.65.
- 11 oz. bag is $2.20 6 (11 oz.) bags/case is $13.20.
