Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is Coconut Nectar?

Simply put, coconut nectar is the nectar of the flower from a coconut tree. It can then be used in liquid form or dried to resemble brown sugar in taste. Our Coconut Nectar is the dried version so we list it on our label as Dried Coconut Nectar. Coconut Nectar is considered low-glycemic and safe for diabetics. It also has trace minerals. Sometimes it can be called Coconut Sugar, Coconut Palm Sugar or Coconut Palm Nectar. We cannot guarantee the variations, alterations or modifications a different company might use. 

What is Paleo or Paleo Friendly?

A basic version of paleo is no grains, no refined sugar, no dairy and no legumes. From there different diets can add or eliminate certain food groups depending on the desired outcome or intention. Basic paleo encourages meats, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds which helps lower carbohydrate intake if that is one's goal.

Why are your products also Gluten-Free?

Paleo, by default, should be gluten free since no grains are acceptable. We only use nut and seed flours in our recipes.

Do your products need to be refrigerated?

Fortunately, the products are not overly sensitive. A muffin could sit on your desk for a couple of days and it would still be fresh. We recommend freezing everything upon arrival in the mail. Products last 4-6 months in the freezer and 2-3 weeks in the fridge, depending on temperatures.

Is it OK my products arrived warm?

Yes!! They leave our facility frozen and with freezer ice packs. The short time in a warm environment shouldn't affect the products. However, if you ever have a problem with your package upon arrival, please contact us at info@treasuredearthfoods.com so we can help remedy the situation.

Can I lose weight eating your products?

We have had people tell us they develop more self control and fewer sugar cravings when they ate our products in place of other sweets. We cannot guarantee what effects you may notice but we love hearing your stories!

What about the calories?

Nuts and seeds are naturally high in calories from the higher protein and fat content when compared to grains. Our products are a fraction of the sugar levels vs traditionally made grain based baked goods. The majority of the calories in our products are from the nut and seed flours.
