Our name means "butterfly" in Spanish. We selected the name "Mariposa" because many people who adopt a gluten-free lifestyle transform their lives through food. The butterfly is the perfect metaphor for such transformation. Being a California-based company, with all the Spanish influences in California, we decided the Spanish word for butterfly was perfect.
Our founder, Patti Furey Crane adopted a gluten-free diet following a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in 2002. Patti turned her health around through food, through diet and of course, through managing stress. Mariposa is not about disease - whether MS or Celiac Disease. Mariposa is about health and well-being and the start of a transformation that's possible through food.
So cheers to finding your better health through food!
