Nutrition & Ingredients FAQ
We use a blend wheat protein isolate, whey protein isolate and pea protein that is high heat resistant to provide a more ideal texture for our cooked product.
Insoluble fiber and most natural sweeteners have 0 caloric value and pass through your digestive tract without being digested.
So they’re subtracted from the amount of total carbohydrates to get a value of “net carbs,” which you can think of as the active carbs that affect your body and blood sugar.
So to calculate. Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates - (Fiber + Sugar Alcohol)
First off, we are firm believers in the traditional and timeless rule of “calories in, calories out”.
That being said we get this kind of statement and similar questions ALOT but we can assure you the calories are accurate on our nutrition labels.
We’ve had plenty of people take a look at the total carbohydrate count on our nutrition label and quickly call us “liars” without taking the time to ask any questions.
Well our answer as to why the calories are “lower” is because we use non-impact carbohydrates such as insoluble fiber and sugar alcohols that have zero caloric value in our muffins.
First off we have insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber is the type of fiber that does not dissolve in water and may pass through the gastrointestinal tract relatively intact and so it is not a source of calories.
The sweeteners we use (Erythritol, Monk Fruit and Stevia) are all 0 calorie sweeteners, so there are no calories from these "non-impact carbohydrates" to increase the calorie count in our muffins.
Although, these carbohydrates may pass through your body without being broken down or metabolized. The FDA requires us to list these non-impact carbohydrates under the total carbohydrate count of our nutrition label.
And if you don’t believe us, please feel free to do your own research. We highly encourage doing your own analysis before purchasing or trying out our products!
Actually, Erythritol is a natural sweetener.
Fermented from sugars and found in many vegetables and fruit.It is considered to be one of the healthiest sugar alcohols because it's calorie-free, doesn't raise blood sugar levels, and passes through the digestive tract without getting absorbed into the body.
After the fruit or vegetable is fermented to create this sugar alcohol, it is dried into a granular powder to create erythritol.
Unfortunately, we are no longer gluten free. We used to be but the texture would come out more "sandy" and it was rather expensive.
That being said, we'd love to make gluten free flavors again in the future. Please let us know which ones you'd like to see here
No our muffins aren't vegan friendly but we'd love to make some vegan flavors in the future. Please let us know which ones you'd like to see here
Sadly, no. Our product isn't kosher certified.
