Our honey is locally raised and harvested by bee keepers in Hawaii. It is well known that honey is composed of a variety of sugars and enzymes. Due to the type of sugar, the absorption is different than refined sugars and there is less of a “rush” to the body.
All of our fruit is unsulpured (not treated with a toxic chemical, sulphur dioxide) and unsweetened (except the ginger which is sweetened with cane sugar).
We use expeller-pressed non-GMO Canola Oil. Also, there are no trans-fats in our granola cereal or in our MacaMania bars.
Macadamia nuts are naturally low in saturated fat and contain 80 percent monounsaturates (the “good” fats) and have no cholesterol, which means that macadamia nuts actually contain a higher percentage of monosaturates than found in olives or olive oil.
Walnuts are an important plant source of Omega-3 fatty acids, high in protein and low in saturated fats and cholesterol-free.
It is true that coconuts contain 88% saturated fat-but it's a plant-based fat that actually has health benefits, The oil can also strengthen the immune system, encourage optimal development of the brain and nervous system, and protect against cancer and heart disease. Your bones will benefit, too.
Just a reminder, we carry a nut free granola - Mango Ginger. And if you don’t like dried fruit, try our Original Flavor Granola.
