Little Lad's Granola Philosophy
does a cow have four stomachs? Because uncooked grains need a long time
to digest and several trips through the stomach - hence 4 stomachs.
To solve this grain digestion problem for humans, zwieback and melba
toast (twice baked bread) and even toast, which are all easily digested,
were developed. Granola was first made by John Harvey Kellogg M.D.,
a Seventh-day Adventist. His formulas contained twice-baked bread for
easy digestion to aid in the healing of his patients. Without understanding
his philosophy, but trying to duplicate Kellogg's success, modern granola
makers have tried to compensate for hard to digest grains by using "ovenized"
rolled oats. But as many people know, most granolas sit in your stomach
all day long and sour, and then pass out undigested, which makes some
people think that they have allergies or digestion disorders, and leaves
them with low energy. Whole grains contain many nutrients, but they
can do you no good unless they can be easily digested. This is why Little
Lad's bakes their granolas for hours and hours. And, for that matter,
all of our crackers get slow baked and thoroughly dried as well! This
changes the starches to easily digested polysaccharides. And makes you
feel like you just ate a bowl of the lightest of cereals, yet gives
you all of the benefits and energy of whole grains and lasts all the
way until lunch time. So unless you have four stomachs, you might like
to try a granola that actually digests! This will result in more energy,
and a higher satisfaction from your meal. Try it! What do you have to
lose? (Besides three stomachs!) For more excellent health information,
we recommend the book, "Ministry of Healing" which can be obtained by
