STORY

Onesto is Italian for "honest".  Every day, Onesto is inspired to create honest, real food for you and your family. 

The Onesto story is one of evolution. Jane Ciccone and her husband, Jesse, have always shared a love of travel, a love of healthy lifestyles and a love of good food. Some of their favorite memories are when they lived in San Francisco and were exposed to fresh seafood at Fisherman's Wharf, farmers markets on the weekends and the "farm-to-table" approach of so many wonderful restaurants. 

After having children, they were discouraged at the rise of overly-processed, preservative-filled snacks on grocery store shelves. In an attempt to stay healthy and set good examples for their kids (Zachary and Josie), Jane and Jesse decided to reduce unhealthy foods in their home. But, they soon realized how much they missed crackers with their cheese!  So... Jane began experimenting with her own recipes and the seeds of Onesto were planted. 
 




"There is nothing else that can nourish your body and soul more than sharing delicious, healthy food with family and friends. It doesn't have to be fancy or overly complicated. 

Slowing down, enjoying good food, a glass of wine and laughing with good people always fills my cup!" 

Jane Ciccone, Co-Founder

INGREDIENTS

It's all about the ingredients! Below is Onesto's entire list of ingredients and where they come from.

Ancho Chile Powder: The Ancho is the sweetest of the dried chiles. When they are fresh, they are called Poblano Peppers. The dried version is named for its characteristic broad shoulders, "Ancho", pronounced AHN-choh, means wide in Spanish. Anchos contain vitamin A, C, and B vitamins and significant amounts of iron, thiamine, niacin, magnesium and riboflavin. Chiles are cholesterol-free, saturated fat-free, low calorie, low sodium, and high in fiber.

Blanced Almond Flour: Almond flour is low in carbohydrates, high in fiber and a high source of protein. It is also rich in vitamins and minerals, including iron, riboflavin, magnesium, potassium, calcium and vitamin E. Almonds are beneficial for heart health and lowering cholesterol. 

Brown Rice Flour: This flour is a nutritious alternative to wheat and is naturally gluten-free. It is high in protein, iron, fiber and vitamin B. Brown rice flour is rich in manganese, which helps in the proper development of bones and cartilage. It also helps in better absorption of calcium.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Olive oil is full of polyphenols, a type of antioxidant that helps protect your cells from damage. Certain polyphenols also have anti-inflammatory properties. Olive oil is high in a type of fat known as monounsaturated fat, which can help lower your cholesterol and control insulin levels in the body. In addition to olive oil, they can be found in avocados, nuts and fatty fish.

Garlic Powder: This powder has all the benefits of whole garlic because it is a powdered version of whole garlic. Garlic powder and whole garlic have been shown to strengthen the immune system and help fight cancer. Garlic powder creates small reductions in total blood cholesterol and low-density lipoproteins, or "bad" cholesterol. 

Ground Black Pepper: When dried, this plant-derived spice is referred to as a peppercorn, and is then ground into a powder to be put on food to add flavor and spice. Because of its antibacterial properties, pepper is also used to preserve food. It is a rich source of manganese, iron, potassium, vitamin-C, vitamin K, and dietary fiber.

Onion Powder: Ground dehydrated onion, (onion powder) contains dietary fiber, manganese, calcium and vitamin C. A 1-tablespoon serving of onion powder is roughly equivalent in flavor to a 1/2-cup serving of chopped raw onion. Onion powder has as much fiber per tablespoon as a half-cup serving of cooked cauliflower, 1 medium-sized tomato or 1 cup of cubed, raw cantaloupe. 

Pink Himalayan Salt: About 200 millions of years ago crystallized sea salt beds, now deep within the Himalayans, were covered by lava. These beds were kept in a pristine environment that has been surrounded by snow and ice year round, the lava is thought to have protected the salt from modern-day pollution leading to the belief that Himalayan Pink salt is the purest salt to be found on earth. It is now hand-mined from the mountains and brought to the culinary market. The many hues of pink, red and white are an indication of this salt’s rich and varying mineral and energy-rich iron content. Himalayan Salt contains the same 84 trace minerals and elements that are found in the human body; that alone is quite impressive! A few of these minerals include: sodium chloride, sulphate, calcium, potassium, and magnesium.

Poppy Seeds: Nutty aromatic flavor is because of many fatty acids and essential volatile oils, which comprise about 50% of net weight. The seeds are especially rich in oleic and linoleic acids. Oleic acid, a mono-unsaturated fatty acid, helps lower LDL or "bad cholesterol" and increase HDL or "good cholesterol" levels in the blood. Poppy seeds' outer husk is a good source of dietary fiber. The seeds are excellent source B-complex vitamins such as thiamin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, riboflavin, niacin, and folic acid. 

Potato Starch: The cells of the root tubers of the potato plant contain starch grains. To extract the starch, the potatoes are crushed; the starch grains are released from the destroyed cells.Potato starch is known for being a good source of resistant starch, namely type 2 resistant starch. Resistant starch resists digestion — hence its name — and so it passes through your intestines undigested. Because of this, it is an excellent source of nutrition for the healthy bacteria in the colon, functioning as an important source of nutrition for you.

Raw Sesame Seeds: Sesame seeds may be tiny, but they have huge health benefits. They were worth their weight in gold during the Middle Ages, and for many good reasons. Not only are sesame seeds an excellent source of copper and a very good source of manganese, but they are also a good source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, molybdenum, selenium, and dietary fiber.

Raw Sugar: Unrefined raw sugar is a better alternative to white sugar, since it retains minerals. Raw sugar contains molasses, hence retains small amounts of calcium, iron and potassium. White sugar has molasses removed and therefore has no detectable minerals. Raw sugar is not a health food and should not be eaten in large quantities. 

Rosemary: This herb has many wonderful qualities. It is knows to boost memory, improve mood, reduce inflammation, relieve pain, protect the immune system, stimulate circulation, detoxify the body, protect the body from bacterial infections, prevent premature aging, and heal skin conditions.

Sea Salt: Pure sea salt retains all essential natural elements from the sea. Pure a salt contains magnesium, calcium, potassium, iron, zinc and iodine. These natural minerals are valuable for healthy functioning of the body. Pure sea salt contains 60 trace minerals which help you stay hydrated. Sufficient sodium levels in one's body help balance your sodium-potassium ratios. 

Sorghum Flour: Also called Juwar flour, is naturally gluten-free. It is very high in fiber and is a good source of antioxidants. It is slowly digested which makes us feel fuller, longer. It balances our blood sugar levels and helps fight inflammation, cancer and heart disease.

Tapioca Starch: Tapioca is a starch extracted from cassava root. All the calories in tapioca flour come from its carbohydrate content. Unlike wheat flour, tapioca flour contains very little protein or fat.

Xanthan Gum: Created when the Xanthomonas campestris bacterium from a plant is allowed to ferment on a sugar. This creates a gel that is then dried and milled to create the powdery substance. When used in baking, it mimics the gluten found in "regular" dough, helping to hold a cookie (or cracker!) together while it bakes.
