Our story

In 2014, Niclas “Nick” Luthman, co-founder of LUB Foods, was diagnosed as a pre-diabetic, so he was forced to change his diet and lifestyle.  

Nick obsessively learned about nutrition and started following a strict low-carb, anti-inflammatory diet, basically a keto diet long before the word was trendy. Eventually, he was able to get his health under control, but the diet was boring: He missed all the foods and snacks he loved.
