Loyal to the Core
Our family has built a company based on loyalty to core nutritional principles and the health of our customers and the planet. Our products are inspired by a desire to consume all of our favorite foods and beverages while optimizing health at the same time. A lot of our dear friends and family members have suffered from diabetes and insulin-related issues, which taught us the importance of limiting our added sugar intake.
Many years ago, we would spend time researching healthy sugar alternatives as a family, which eventually led us to the incredible monk fruit. After tasting the delicious sweetness of monk fruit, and reading all about its incredible benefits and nutritional profile, we started to incorporate monk fruit into all of our favorite recipes, and continued doing this for years. We introduced our findings with friends and family, but monk fruit is a rare ingredient and most people found it difficult to find monk fruit in a natural and accessible form. That is what inspired us to create Loyal.
“Our goal is for everyone to be able to enjoy their favorite foods and recipes in a way that is not harmful and even beneficial for your body. We hope that Loyal will become your new best friend and will allow you to enjoy life’s most delicious experiences without the guilt!”
Monk fruit is a superfood that has been used for centuries as a longevity aid: Its potent antioxidants, known as mogrosides, instruct the body to metabolize the sweetener differently than regular sugars, exerting no effect on blood sugar.
Monk fruit grows in a small sub-tropical melon that has been cultivated for hundreds of years. The sweetener is extracted by removing the seeds and skin from the small round fruit, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juices. The extract is nearly 300 times sweeter than sugar, however, is entirely organic and contains zero calories, zero sugar, zero carbs, and zero glycemic indexes––making it nothing less than a bona fide superfood.
Erythritol is a natural ingredient that is found in watermelons, grapes, pears, and mushrooms. While a lot of sugar alcohols may cause gastrointestinal distress due to the water that they attract into the small intestine, erythritol does not. Many types of sugar and sweeteners can contribute to tooth decay, but erythritol does negatively impact our teeth or our oral health. In addition, erythritol has been shown to possibly have an antioxidant effect based on studies conducted. Loyal incorporates the highest quality erythritol that is USDA organic, NON-GMO, Kosher, and Vegan.
