Peace of Mind
Poparuba was developed by Kerri Gedert. As a brilliant food scientist, former swim suit model and prolific fitness competitor, Kerri’s dream was to "create a world full of decadence and wellness all rolled happily and tastefully together.”
Kerri’s vision for Poparuba was to create foods that are not only delicious, but celebrate natural, gluten-free, low sugar, low calorie nutrition too. She was driven to create the kind of foods that lived up to her high nutritional standards but didn’t disappoint on texture and taste.
Tragically in 2017 Kerri ended her life following a battle with depression. By having open conversations about the struggles so many face, and providing access to help that is so desperately needed, can we move in a direction of healing and hope.
Today, 2% of all Poparuba proceeds help fund NAMI [National Alliance on Mental Illness] a nonprofit that is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
