There is a small amount of refined sugar coming from the chocolate chips themselves, found only in our chocolate-flavored varieties. Our fair trade chocolate chips are ethically sourced and align with our food values and mission.
Our other non-chocolate flavors do not contain any refined sugar. The main source of sugar is from organic honey. We use it not only because it provides sweetness, but honey also acts as a natural preservative and helps hold the nut-butter together, as we do not use any chemical preservatives. Other sources of sugar in our bars vary by flavor but may include maple syrup, lactose coming from organic non-fat dry milk, added fruit and even peanuts themselves inherently contain some sugar.
