Almond Butter - Our single-ingredient almond butter is made with organic dry-roasted almonds that are high in minerals including calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. Almonds are rich in healthy fats - in particular, ALA omega 3 fats - hello brain food! Almonds are also high in Vitamin E - which is a fat-soluble vitamin responsible for fighting free radicals and helping to repair damaged skin.
Macadamia Butter - Rich, sweet, and luxuriously nutty ... we're not kidding when we say that this nut butter is spoon-licking good. Beyond the delicious taste – macadamia nuts are also a nutrient-dense powerhouse! Macadamia nuts are rich in healthy fats – in particular, ALA omega 3 fats and oleic acid (omega 9) - supporting your brain and heart. In addition, macadamia nut butter is also a great source of Vitamin A, B Vitamins and folate, Iron, and manganese.
