Good Carbs or Bad Carbs? We have a choice in how we fuel our children’s energy needs while providing their bodies with the building blocks to grow, stay healthy, learn new skills, stay sharp, and perform well.
HEROFUEL is crafted with healthy carbs (carbohydrates): organic honey, organic cashew butter, and organic almonds – whole food ingredients naturally packed with the synergistic nutrients needed to be properly metabolized and used in the body.
You won’t find hidden sugars in HEROFUEL like you find in most other sports nutrition bars on the market. In fact, there are only 8 grams of sugar total in each 40g pack. That is significantly lower than most performance fuel products out there. You also won’t find odd fillers and refined flours that lend little nutritional sustenance (bad carbs!).
Carbohydrates (good ones) along with healthy fats (also naturally occurring in the cashew butter and almonds), are readily used for fuel to nourish the active muscles for your athlete!
Let’s take a closer look at what’s so awesome about the good carb ingredients in HEROFUEL:
Organic Honey – Honey is a form of sugar and while refined sugar is nutrient depleting, raw honey from a trusted source is naturally packed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. Not all honey is created equal, some products labeled as honey, actually contain corn syrup and other ingredients that are NOT honey at all! That’s why we are so proud of our honey supplied by, Glory Bee, crafted, right here in the Pacific Northwest! Much more than simply processors of honey, Glory Bee is committed to sustainability, community education, and the “Save the Bee” social program, which directly support organizations dedicated to saving the honey bee and combating colony collapse issues.
Raw Almonds – A nearly perfect food, almonds contain protein, healthy fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and more. The nutrients in almonds have been proven to be beneficial for cardiovascular health, energy production, and fat and sugar metabolism.
Organic Cashew Butter – Another nutritional powerhouse that we source local in the Pacific Northwest, the Wilderness Poets Raw Cashew Butter in HEROFUEL provides essential fatty acids, B vitamins, fiber, protein, potassium, and iron along with just a small amount of carbohydrates and natural occurring sugar.
Food quality matters! When time is tight, you don’t have to sacrifice nutrition and taste. Nourish your athlete’s growing bodies and brains the best way possible - with real whole foods and well-balance healthy snacks like HEROFUEL.
