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!” -The Loyal Team!
Founder & CEO
Growing up, Jonathan was always extremely interested and passionate about nutrition and wellness. After witnessing several family members and close friends suffer with diabetes, he was inspired to find a way to consume all of his favorite foods and beverages without the negative health implications associated with table sugar and artificial sweeteners. Joining him on this quest were his parents and sister, and after years of research and experimentation they discovered Loyal. Jonathan has always valued the concept of loyalty, and is motivated to help society re-establish a loyal relationship with their consumption.

Irina was fascinated with nutrition and with ancient healing traditions, instilled by her grandmother. This led her to prioritize nutrition in the household, and find ways to make exciting meals that were still delicious and enjoyed by her family. Michael always enjoyed taste-testing these recipes throughout the years, and was inspired to help his family in their quest for optimal living.
