Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS MUESLI?
One of our favorite questions! Ready for your history lesson? Find out what muesli is and how it was created here.
HOW DO YOU PREPARE IT?
One of the best things about mueslis is the versatility. Eat it cold, hot, soaked, or right out of the bag. Check out our Ultimate Guide: How to Eat Muesli
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MUESLI AND GRANOLA?
They may look similar, but how they’re made and what goes in can be much different. Think of muesli as a less processed, healthier granola. More than just oats and honey, our mueslis are loaded with nutrient dense nuts, seeds, and dried fruits. While many granolas are typically loaded with refined sugars and oils, our mueslis are either unsweetened or naturally sweetened, and no oils are added. Muesli is also raw, leaving ingredients as close to their natural state as possible.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS GLUTEN FREE?
Yes, with the exception of our Almond Date Everyday Muesli (made with whole grain rye and barley), our entire line of muesli is produced in a Gluten Free Certified facility (<10 ppm). Gluten is not inherent in any of our ingredients, so we did not sacrifice quality or taste to get there. Our supplier of Gluten Free oats uses Purity Protocol to ensure comprehensive testing for gluten.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS ORGANIC?
Our Farmer's Market Mix is our first certified organic product. All of our remaining products are Non-GMO Project Verified and we are working toward purchasing more and more ingredients organically. Currently, our “conventional” mixes contain about 30-40% organic ingredients. We are currently working with several family farms who are in transition to becoming organic.
DO YOUR OATS CONTAIN GLYPHOSATE?
Our muesli was most recently voluntarily lab tested for glyphosate residues in December 2019 and glyphosate was not detected. The lab detection limit was 5 parts per billion (ppb). We will continue to implement a voluntary routine glyphosate testing of our products and the results will be posted here. Read our latest update and stance on Glyphosate here.
IS YOUR PACKAGING RECYCLABLE?
Our cardboard boxes are made with recycled content and are completely recyclable. The plastic film in our flexible pouch is technically a #7 which is a catch all for plastics not fitting into any other category. While not recyclable, our Bulk Eco-Packs are made with 30% PCR (post consumer recycled) materials to help reduce the demand for virgin plastic. Currently, we are not satisfied with where our packaging is at. Check out our latest blog post on packaging here > Lets Talk Plastic: Where We're At, Where We're Going
