NEW: Keto Friendly, Low Carb, Sugar Free Baking Mixes
The idea to start developing sugar free products started when I couldn’t find any baked goods without all the conventional high sugar ingredients, to fit into my low carb lifestyle.
We are proud of using only products that we feel are safe and healthy. The ingredients are kept as real as possible. We replace high glycemic flours with a blend of low carb nut flours and a small amount of rice flour to give the cake a superior texture. The cakes are moist and dense and provide a generous portion of fiber and protein
The Sweet Taste
The main sweetener is a zero calorie, zero glycemic, non-gmo Stevia/Erythriol blend. Small amounts of xylitol and prebiotic fibres are used in some products, but not enough to cause digestive upset. The sweetness level is on the low side with just enough sugar like taste to feel like an indulgence without any after taste.
To inspire you to renew your joy of celebrating and baking with products that allow for indulgence without the cravings, guilt and blood sugar swings. That you can reach your goal and have fun doing it.
SOLD OUT – ANOTHER ORDER ON IT’S WAY
Wow! These bags sold out quickly! We have ordered more, they’ll be at our market next week…keep an eye over at til #1 where we have them displayed.
Here’s what we love about these reusable produce bags:
100% natural organic cotton mesh
Maximum weight capacity -15lbs
Convenient drawstring closure
Mesh allows for content visibility

Wash your produce in these bags at home, empty produce then add a little soap to the bag, scrub, rinse and hang to dry for next trip to Ralph’s!
