Udi’s Healthy Foods started as a chain of bakeries and cafes in Colorado in the early 1990s. In 2008, the company began baking gluten-free bread. By 2009, Udi’s products were on the shelves of local Whole Foods and King Soopers grocery stores. The company was bought by Smart Balance in 2012. Udi’s line of products includes: hamburger and hotdog buns, muffins, pizza crust, cookie dough, bagels, sliced bread, brownies, rolls, French baguettes and granola.
Smart Balance provides healthy food products such as margarine substitutes, milk, cooking spray, mayonnaise, peanut butter, eggs, cooking oils, and microwaveable popcorn. These items have no trans fat and no partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. Smart Balance bought Udi’s Healthy Foods for $125 in early summer 2012.
