Jackson's Honest

Scott & Megan Reamer co-founded Jackson's Honest with the mission to bring ancestral fats back to the food chain in accessible, convenient, and great tasting ways. Through a 16 year journey with our son Jackson's rare inflammatory autoimmune disease (a variant of Aicardi-Goutieres syndrome), we learned directly the power of a ketogenic diet (high fat, low carbs) to ameliorate some of his more profound symptoms. We also observed first-hand how important it was for us to make ancestral, saturated fats like coconut oil a significant part of that dietary approach. After years of trial and error, we discovered a fat-centered, low inflammation diet that kept the most pathological aspects of his disease in check, profoundly increasing the quality of his life in the process. What started out a few short years ago as a rare treat for our own kids making coconut oil-cooked potato chips on our stove-top at home has turned into a portfolio of 20+ different potato chip, tortilla chip, and grain-free puff snacks carried nationally in more than 5,000 grocers, deli's, hotels, restaurants, corporate cafeterias, colleges, and convenience store, including Whole Foods Market, Wegman's, Sprout's, The Fresh Market, Lucky's, Publix, Central Market, Natural Grocers Vitamin Cottage, ShopRite, Fairway, HyVee and online at Amazon.com, Thrivemarket.com, and Jacksonshonest.com.
