This is a comprehensive list of snack brands that are seed oil free—meaning they don't have inflammatory oils such as canola oil, vegetable oil, soybean oil, etc. All snacks listed in this blog post are also refined sugar free unless noted otherwise.

Before I get into the list of brands that have "better for you" snack options, I want to emphasize that it's always best to make home-cooked meals and snacks rather than to buy pre-packaged foods of any kind. That being said, perfection isn't the goal and it can be nice to have some quality snack options when you're traveling or for special occasions.


There's always a "good, better, and best"when it comes to food, and convenience often does have a place. If you're looking for pre-packaged snacks with clean ingredients, you're in the right place!


Here's a comprehensive list of snack brands by category, along with several discount codes for my personal favorites. I hope you find this guide helpful!


Meat Snacks


These are the best 100% grass-fed beef snacks that are seed oil free, refined sugar free, and artificial ingredient free. We often bring meat snacks along when traveling or "on the go". If you're looking to make your own beef jerky, check out my recipe here.



Fruit Snacks


These are some fruit snack brands that have clean ingredients and are seed oil / refined sugar free. Most of them are just one ingredient (fruit).



Pork Rinds


Most pork rinds are made with lard, but it's a good idea to double check and make sure. Here are some brands of pork rinds we like (that are seed oil and refined sugar free).



Chips


Here are all the tortilla chips and potato chips I've found that are seed oil free. They are tough to find, that's for sure!


  • Masa Chips (code: Rach)

    • Made with 100% grass-fed beef tallow and organic corn. These chips are pricey, but they are the best chips I've ever had! Because they're made with real fat, they're much more filling. I typically only have a few as a special treat.

  • Beefy's Own: Tallow Fried Potato Chips

  • Rosie's Chips

  • Siete Chips

    • Most of Siete's chips are grain free, and they use avocado oil. They recently came out with corn tortilla chips as well.

  • Boulder Canyon Potato Chips

    • They have an avocado oil & olive oil line, but some may have seed oils in them.

  • Jackson's Sweet Potato Chips

    • .They have an avocado oil & coconut oil line, but others may have seed oils in them

  • Gilly Loco

    • These are corn tortilla chips made with coconut oil.


Bone Broth


I'm not sure if bone broth is really considered a snack, but I love it so much that I had to include it! Personally, I often make homemade bone broth, but when I run out or don't have time, these are the brands I use.


  • Fond Bone Broth (code: Rach)

    • Fond bone broth is just like the homemade stuff. It literally gels over when kept in the fridge! So nourishing and delicious.

  • Kettle & Fire (code: RibeyeRach)


Protein Powder


Of course, it's best to get your protein from home-cooked meals, but a good quality protein powder is better than no protein at all. These are cleanest protein powder options I've found!


  • Equip Foods (code: Rach)

    • The unflavored version of this protein powder has only one ingredient, grass-fed beef. I use this when making my raw milk shakes!

  • Paleovalley (save 15% off through this link)

    • Paleovalley has both bone broth protein powder and whey protein powder. Both have very simple, clean ingredients.

  • Perfect Supplements (code: RibeyeRach)

    • Perfect supplements has grass-fed collagen powder with clean ingredients.


Chocolate


These chocolate brands are seed oil free and refined sugar free. If you're looking to make your own chocolate, check out my recipe here.


  • Honey Mama's

    • This chocolate is sweetened with raw honey and has very simple, organic ingredients. It's the best chocolate I've ever had! I'd recommend the oregon mint or the chocolate cake flavors—but you can't go wrong.

  • Hu Chocolate

    • This chocolate is sweetened with coconut sugar. My favorite flavors are the plain milk chocolate and the crunchy mint.


Popcorn


Making homemade popcorn with tallow or coconut oil really isn't hard to do (and makes for a fun special treat). But here are some brands that make seed oil free popcorn!



Nuts


Many brands of nuts have seed oils in them, even when it seems like just plain nuts. They are often roasted in canola or vegetable oil. Many raw or dry roasted nuts will be seed oil free. Sprouted nuts are best if you can find them, as they are much more digestable.


  • Lark Ellen (Sprouted Nuts)

  • Costco: Raw organic cashews


Cereal


If you're really craving cereal and want to find a brand with clean ingredients, these are the few I've found. They aren't cheap, that's for sure. I don't know about you, but I'd rather red meat and eggs for breakfast any day!



Snack Bars


We always prefer having meat and dairy snacks as opposed to granola or protein bars. Most of the options available are highly processed with a laundry list of ingredients. These are some "better for you" options that are seed oil free (and artifical ingredient free).



Crackers


It's not easy to find seed oil free crackers! Here are the few brands I've found. Hopefully more options will be available in the future.



Cookies


It’s always best to make your own treats where possible! But when it comes to store-bought cookies, these are going to be the cleanest brands, free of seed oils. Not all of these brands are organic, and some have refined sugar.



In Summary


For those of you pursuing a healthier / "low-tox" lifestyle, keep in mind that you don't have to change everything at once. Sometimes stressing about toxins can be worse for our health than the toxins themselves. Perfection is never the goal. Be proud of yourself for every effort you make. Small changes really add up and make a difference over time.


As more awareness comes to seed oils and the effects they have on our health, hopefully more companies and restaurants will start to use real fats in their food. Seed oil free might just be the new norm in the near future!


Always make sure to do your own research, as companies can change their ingredients/practices at any time. If you see anything that needs to be updated, please let me know! Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
