NATURAL & ORGANIC
No GMO's, preservatives or Refined Sugars
Discover the Difference Nature Makes
Why choose organic and natural ingredients? Well, the list of man made chemicals in our food and environment is growing exponentially. Newborn babies are shown to have hundreds of these chemicals from the day they are born passed down from mother to child. We do not feel that this is leading to a healthy population. Beneficial insects are dropping in numbers and our soil microbiome is becoming sterilized. The consequences of this has not been fully realized yet. At Better Butters we strive to use ingredients that have been certified Organic. Currently, we have not certified our products as organic yet but you can rest assured that everything that is labelled Organic contains only certified organic ingredients. A few products we offer aren't fully organic as sometimes we have found it hard to source everything organic at a price people can afford but even those products have mostly organic ingredients.
Why we leave out the extra junk.
Coconut and nuts are superfoods and powerhouses of nutrients. They are also very tasty on their own. There is no reason to add any other junk to the products.
GMO's are becoming ever prevalent in our food system and are most commonly strains that are chemical resistant leading to higher levels of chemicals in the environment. This causes imbalances in the environment with insects and microbes being affected the most. They are also unproven to our own health.
Preservatives can make nut butters shelf stable and prolong shelf life. They are also not great for our body with some of them being considered carcinogenic or other issues. What really boggles us is how most raw nut butters are kept on the shelf in the store and don't even contain preservatives when raw nuts should always be kept cold to prevent rancidity. Most people cannot tell the difference between rancid and fresh nuts by taste so our commitment is to always keep our butters fresh by storing in the fridge and making in small batches to avoid long storage.
Refined sugars are the likely cause of the growing obesity and disease problem in our society. If we do use any sweetener in our coconut butter it is always unpasteurized organic honey as a small percentage of the total jar. We never make things too sweet and only use it in specialty flavors that may be available from time to time and our chocolate flavor.
