Solstice Canyon Almond Butter
Los Angeles-based Solstice Canyon specializes in crafting small-batch gourmet foods and pantry items made with only the highest quality organic ingredients. All Solstice Canyon almond butters are made using certified organic, raw, unpasteurized European almonds and other raw, organic, low-glycemic super ingredients in an effort to preserve the vital enzymes and life enhancing benefits inherent in our foods. Taste receives equal amounts of attention, and Solstice Canyon prioritizes creating products with exciting, delicious, and layered flavor profiles that appeal to even the most discriminating food lovers.
Solstice Canyon is the creation of Rachael Sheridan and Jessie Litow, friends who spent years experimenting in their own kitchens to create healthy and irresistible recipes that delight from the inside out. Former food industry co-workers, Rachael and Jessie founded Solstice Canyon after realizing there was a void in the market when it came to the type of snack that they both favored day to day: deliciously flavored nut butters made with organic and truly raw ingredients. After tireless research, the two ladies formed Solstice Canyon in 2014 with an intention to capture and jar their love for healthful, beautiful, and delicious living.

More Ingredient Information:
**These raw, organic almonds are kept unpasteurized to preserve their vital nutrients and viable enzymes that are essential for digestion. Sadly, using unpasteurized raw organic domestic almonds is not legal in California, making truly raw, unpasteurized nut butters like those made by Solstice Canyon a rarity on the market today.
Raw organic coconut oil is rich in lauric acid which helps improve cholesterol ratios. Coconut oil can also positively affect hormones responsible for improving thyroid function and blood sugar stability. It is a natural anti-fungal that can help our bodies mount resistance to viruses, bacteria, and yeast.
Himalayan pink salt is mineral packed and helps promote body alkalinity and electrolyte balance.
Raw organic coconut nectar is the lowest glycemic sweetener available and extremely low in fructose and is a source of 17 amino acids.
Unpasteurized almonds are very rare, typically almonds are steam pasteurized with a toxic gas which kills some of the vital nutrients in the almond. Raw almonds are preferable to roasted because roasted almonds have been heated and thus there has been damage caused to their polyunsaturated fats, which are more vulnerable to oxidation. Oxidized fats account for rancidity, which is pro-inflammatory and carcinogenic to the human body.
In short, this is the best guilt free almond butter with health in mind. Not to mention delicious.
