Kara's Backstory Story:
Kara Landau Used Her Breakup to Launch a Popular Snack Brand Cookie To Help Heal Your Gut! Learn How this CEO and Dietician’s “Mood Boosting Formula” Caught the Attention of the Makers of Oreos...

Kara Landau, the “Prebiotic Dietitian”, was always passionate about nutrition and entrepreneurship, but until she had her own “problem” to solve, she did not have any major breakthroughs. In 2012, as a result of a long term relationship ending, Kara heartbroken and depressed decided to move to New York City to pursue her passions and heal her heart… or more accurately, her gut. After extensive research into how she could get out of her heartbroken rut, she ended up writing and publishing “The Clean Separation” in 2013, which was only the beginning of her entrepreneurial journey. In her book she combines various dietary changes people can make to improve their emotional states, as well as “business planning” one’s life, and encouraging people to see the bigger picture of situations.

Upon her health findings, Kara began to act as a spokesperson to talk to people about why gut health is so important in relation to emotional health- in fact 90% of your body’s serotonin (the hormone that makes us feel good!) is located in your gut.

Traveling the world to spread her message of gut-forward emotional health, Kara found that there were no products readily available that helped the gut and boosted mood. It was this need that spurred her to develop her own company in 2018, Uplift Food. Uplift Food was the first dietary supplement created for gut health, focused mainly on its mood-boosting benefits.

Kara’s entrepreneurial passion did not go unnoticed. In March of 2019 Mondelēz- the folks behind Oreo, Philadelphia, and Trident - made Uplift Food the first investment in their new branch called SnackFutures.
