Q. What are the prices?
A. Each 400g jar of nut butter is $15. Each nut cheese is $10 and weighs 2.7 oz. for the cashew varieties and 2.2 oz. for the purple walnut.
Q. How long does the nut cheese keep?
A. Sealed, our nut cheese keeps in the refrigerator until the listed expiry date (3 months from the packaging date) and once opened, the product will keep 4 to 8 weeks in the refrigerator. To prolong freshness, keep in a cool dry place.
Q. How long do the nut and seed butters keep?
A. Our nut and seed butters keep a minimum of 3 to 6 months. Generally it’s best to keep your nut butter in the fridge unless you’ll be consuming them within two weeks. Since they spread more easily at room temperature, you can take them out of the fridge to allow warm up slightly a few minutes before you intend to eat them.
Q. I put my nut butter in the fridge and it became hard. What should I do? Is this normal?
A. Our nut butters solidify naturally when cold. You can take it out of the fridge and leave it on the counter for 15 minutes or so before use and it will soften naturally. If you’re impatient, you could warm it up though these products are raw and wholly nutritious so we don’t necessarily encourage exposing the butter to heat but it is an option.
Q. Are your products organic?
A. We use organic ingredients whenever possible. All organic ingredients have been listed with a little “*” star.
Q. Are your products vegan?
A. Yes. And for our nut cheese, we use 100% non-dairy vegan probiotics.
Q. Are your products raw?
A. We value the health benefits of raw food. All of our nuts and seeds are raw. Some of our flavours contain some heated ingredients, but the primary nuts and seeds remain completely raw; maple syrup (Oh Canada!), apple butter (Pecan Pie Butter) and date syrup (Omegosh! and Date Square Butter). Please inquire about a specific product by using our contact page.
Q. Are your products gluten-free?
Q. Are your products diabetic friendly?
A. All of our products are low glycemic and diabetic friendly except for Oh Canada! which uses maple syrup and so is not officially considered low glycemic.
Q. Why do you use coconut oil?
A. Coconut Oil is highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. The oil possesses healing properties far beyond that of any other dietary oil and is extensively used in traditional medicine among Asian and Pacific populations. Coconut oil has been described as “the healthiest oil on earth.”
Q. Why do you use coconut syrup?
A. Coconut Syrup is a terrific low glycemic sweetener. It’s diabetic friendly, full of natural nutrients and amino acids and has a delicious caramel taste.
Q. How should I eat the nut and seed butters?
A. Health Nut Butters are great on toast or crackers, in sandwiches, with apple or banana slices, or by the spoonful! They make a very nutritious breakfast, are excellent for portable lunches, snacks & picnics, and perfect for a pre- or post- workout snack. For something different, try it in oatmeal or with grilled sweet potato.
Q. What is a suggested serving size?
A. One to two tablespoons of nut or seed butter or cheese is a perfect serving size to provide you with the important vitamins and nutrients in each butter, as well as the fuel to power you until your next meal or snack.
Q. Are your products peanut-free?
A. Except for our Spiced Pumpkin Seed butter, all of our products contain nuts and may contain traces of peanuts, tree nuts and other nuts & seeds.We do not use peanuts in any of our products but we cannot guarantee that our ingredients have not come in contact with peanuts. Though we take precautions to make our Spiced Pumpkin Seed butter as safe and nut-free as possible, it’s made in the same facility and on the same equipment as our other nut products.
