The MELT Story - Say Goodbye to Butter, Say Hello to Melt!®
They say necessity is the mother of invention. For our founder, Cygnia Rapp, it was being placed on a restrictive diet (no wheat, red meat, hard cheese, butter, peanut butter, and more) that severely limited her intake of fats and oils and quickly took the joy out of eating.
As a person who loves food and cooking, Cygnia decided to fight back. Working out of her kitchen, she set out to create organic alternatives that would not only meet her health requirements but also satisfy her taste buds. She tirelessly researched fats and oils, uncovering a wealth of little-known information about healthier saturated fats and oils and their influence on health and well-being. What Cygnia “discovered” became the basis for founding Prosperity Organic Foods: Not all saturated fats are bad for you! Our bodies need a combination of healthful saturated, polyunsaturated, and monounsaturated fats to maintain vitality.
After months of experimentation, Cygnia developed the recipe for MELT Organic based on two critical organic oils, virgin coconut oil and flaxseed oil, that supported her digestive wellness and overall health. For the first time, these two important oils for health are in a food product that is easy to love and a pleasure to eat.
Cygnia’s discovery literally changed her life. Convinced of the health benefits and the importance of offering the MELT Organic choice to others, Cygnia invested her life savings and founded Prosperity Organic Foods.
At 40, Cygnia is far healthier, fitter, and happier than she was at 30, enjoying an active lifestyle of Nordic skiing, mountain biking, and hiking in the Rocky Mountains of Idaho with her friends, family, and her two Alaskan Malamutes. She stays in shape year round to train for the Boulder Mountain Tour, a Nordic ski race of 21 miles, that just a few years ago she was convinced was out of her reach. She continues to pursue her passions for nutrition and creating great tasting, healthy organic foods. She especially loves hearing stories from customers who have discovered MELT Organic and love it as much as she does.
