Do you know why nearly every product has processed sugars of some kind? Because it’s cheap. And the world of nutritionists and doctors have been warning its users to avoid it. It’s cheap, but it’s hard on your body.
We use nature’s highest-quality sweeteners – honey and maple syrup. These ingredients have been used safely for centuries, barely processed on their way from nature’s source to your mouth. Honey and maple syrup both contain minerals and vitamins not found in processed table sugar, and these nutrients help you stay healthy.
Mascavo is made by friends of ours in Brazil, who take the sugar cane and dry it with the minimal amount of processing possible. It helps give the granola its crunchiness.
We know the Michigan beekeepers personally. We know the local maple syrup makers by name and location. American beekeepers tell us that much of the cheap honey you find at the grocery store from China. And that is of lesser quality and greater pesticides sprayed on the flowers there. Even honey claiming to be from other countries, like Argentina, comes from China.
Maple syrup is untainted by genetic engineering or pesticides, simply because of how it is made. You go out into a forest of trees and tap them, and then boil the sap until its syrup. There’s nothing more natural.
When you eat one of our energy bars or a bowl of granola, the sweetness you taste is not just pleasing to the tongue, but it is some of the healthiest and natural sweeteners you can get.
