**Each jar is a labor of love, handmade fresh by yours truly. Paleo MeeNut Butter is handcrafted from start to finish, right down to jarring with a spoon and a scale!** Mee Eat Paleo tries her best to use the highest quality locally-grown ingredients whenever possible. We love to support our country’s small businesses! Keepin’ it real in the USA! My goal is to source the majority, if not all, of my ingredients from California organic & peanut-free local growers. Almost there, whoohoo!!! Mahalo for your patience! You can also trust that there are never any added sugars in our products, not even ones that are considered “acceptable” such as honey or maple. Feel free to add these to our products yourselves for a clean treat but we won’t do it for you.
