Are your products safe from COVID-19?

Yes. In normal times, we take care that everything from ingredients to processing equipment to food handlers are properly sanitized following USDA and CA Dept of Health protocols. In this new climate, we're being especially diligent. There is extra hand washing and food protections in place and no employee with any symptoms is permitted to work. 

Additionally, the FDA has announced that there is no direct evidence that food or food manufacturing is involved in the transmission of the COVID-19. For more information, you can read the FDA's Food Safety and the Corona Virus here.

How long does Much Better Butter™ last once I buy it?

All of our jars have a Best Buy date stamped on the bottom. We recommend you keep them in a cool, dark place. Once opened, they should last just as long and don't put any contaminated utensil (or fingers!) into the jar- no double dipping! 

Keeping an opened jar in the fridge will also increase the shelf life and keep any natural oils from separating but will be harder to spread. 

Are your spreads certified Organic?

In every jar of Much Better Butter™ we use Sunflower Seeds that are Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth under the USDA Organic Regulations. We blend our spreads in a facility that is certified organic. We are working towards total official certification, so stay tuned!

For our Honey-Kissed flavor we use coconut oil that is certified USDA Organic and Non GMO Project Verified. Our honey is California RAW Honey. We are processing the switch to Organic Hawaiian Raw, unprocessed honey. In the continental US, the USDA will not certify any honey as organic as bees can fly wherever they want, so Hawaii is the only certified organic honey in the USA. We love our California beekeeper and look forwards to knowing our Hawaiian beekeeper better. They are the true source of our sweetness.

If you see other products with Organic Honey and it's not from Hawaii- it is imported honey with different organic oversight. 

Which of your products are Vegan?

Roasted with Sea Salt and Chocolate Treat are both vegan. Honey-Kissed contains raw honey, and is not considered vegan. Our chocolate source reports that they may produce on equipment that also processes dairy.

Are your spreads really Gluten Free?

Yes, all three of our flavors are 100% gluten free.

What does Fair Trade Chocolate mean?

Fair trade is a global movement made up of a diverse network of producers, companies, and organizations putting people and planet first.

The products we buy and sell are connected to the livelihoods of others and fair trade is a way to make a conscious choice for a better world. Fair Trade chocolate is a choice to support responsible companies and empower women farmers/workers. It’s a world-changing way of doing business.

I just opened my Chocolate Treat and there are white blobs on top. Is it ok?
These are cocoa butter. It's totally fine and safe to consume. With temperature fluctuations (especially in summer), the cocoa butter can separate from the chocolate giving it this look. Gently warm the jar and stir them in. 

Can my kid take Much Better Butter to school?

Yes (when school is back in session)! All of our flavors are PEANUT FREE and made in a peanut free facility. Besides our belief in making peanut free products, one of our managers has a severe peanut allergy so he makes sure the kitchen stays pure. Roasted with Sea Salt and Chocolate Treat are NUT FREE as well. Honey-Kissed contains coconut oil. Yep, coconuts are still considered a nut?!?!

What are amino acids and why do you use them?

Amino Acids are organic compounds that combine to form proteins and are essential to human life. The human body needs 9 essential amino acids (ones we can't make ourselves) to make proteins to help us live. Humans make some aminos ourselves but not all of the aminos we need to survive- that's why we add them to our delicious sunflower spreads. 

I've heard Sunflower Seeds are high in Vitamin E, is that a good thing?

Yes, according to the USDA sunflower seeds are very high in Vitamin E -an important antioxidant. One serving of Roasted with Sea Salt has 8.5mg of Vitamin E or 60% of the FDA Daily Recommended Percentage. 

What Vitamins and Minerals are your Sunflower Seed Spreads high in?

A single one tablespoon serving of our Roasted with Sea Salt contains Iron 1.2mg 6% of your FDA Daily Value; Potassium 280mg 6%;  Vitamin E 8.5mg 60%; Riboflavin 0.1mg 6%; Niacin 2.3mg 15%; Vitamin B6 0.3mg 15%; Folate 75mcg DFE 20%; Pantothenic Acid 2.3mg 45%; Phosphorus 380mg 30%; Magnesium 40mg 10%; Zinc 1.7mg 15%; Selenium 26mcg 45%
