What is Granola & Where Did it Come From?
Crunchy, full of nutritious seeds, naturally sweet. What is this mysterious food? According to the New York Times article “Who Made That Granola?” A New York man called Dr. James Jackson simply crumbled graham flour and baked it until it was crispy in 1863. He then dubbed the product Jackson’s Granula.
Soon after Dr. Jackson’s invention, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (yes, that Kellogg), made a mixture called granula, which was a simple mixture of oatmeal, wheat flour, and cornmeal. Dr. Jackson then sued Dr. Kellogg for infringement and subsequently the name of Kellogg’s mixture was changed to granola. By the year 1899, Dr. Kellogg was selling about four tons of granola a month.
