Product review: NuNaturals, Inc.

Product review: NuNaturals, Inc.

I want to first thank Ron Redding from NuNaturals for not only taking good care of ME in providing some excellent products to review, but for being the utmost professional I was hoping to find in such a company as NuNatural - if you ever want a knowledgeable and helpful person to work with, Ron is the man! Ron generously sent us a few incredibly amazing products from the NuNatural line to review and share our experience with you.

Do you want to know the reason I looked so forward to reviewing NuNaturals products? Because of their utmost honesty of who they are and what they are about. Where can you find so much honesty? It is hard to find nowadays right? Well, not from NuNaturals, Inc.

I quote Ron here because I really think its important to share just what kind of company you can count on - We do not promise MIRACLES & our goal is not to sell the “ Holy Grail of Products “, however we are very confident that we offer a line of QUALITY products of interest for those consumers that want to assume the responsibility to make changes to a healthier lifestyle & then pledge a commitment to adopt long term behavior changes to assist healthier living. Exercise, proper balanced diet, & healthy lifestyle consistency is usually the key to the individual’s success of staying well. Our commitment is providing NuNaturals products that assist consumers in executing their healthier lifestyle strategies. Now how awesome is that?!

Let me tell you something, I am serious about changing Honey Bear and my health issues around - I am working on and have done a great job according to tests Honey Bear takes for his blood pressure and sugar count, but I cant go to the hospital to find my blood pressure 280/87 ever EVER again! (Yep...could have had cardiac arrest)

So, I decided to work on our eating habits. They aren't great, but we ARE aware and to me, that is a step in the right direction. Ron hit my sweet spot - literally! NuNaturals offers a liquid Stevia and a recipe for...are you ready for this one? Ron gave me a to-die-for recipe called Vegan Almond Joy Cookie Bar - oh my goodness, he couldn't have made a better choice as Almond Joys are one of Honey Bears weaknesses...and any cookie bar is one of mine! Email me if you would like a copy of this recipe, it was (yes, I say was as there is nothing but an empty pan left!) so good! Who knew that a Vegan cookie bar could be so delicious??? I know I wasn't expecting it.
When Ron first told me about their Stevia products, I just knew I had to bake with it (as I am a natural born baker at heart). He sold me with this one paragraph:

One of our greatest successes has been our NEW NuStevia Sweetener™ Stevia Baking Blend that offers a revolutionary new sweetener for preparing tasty & healthy recipes to assist consumers & Chefs in reducing, and/or ELIMINATING refined sugar or artificial sweeteners from recipes. The EASY ONE-TO-ONE conversion for sugar presents the opportunity to ADD FIBER, NOT SUGAR, to any of your favorite recipes. If you are a curious cook, and love to do experimental baking, crave sweets, plus enjoy “ Guiltless Desserts ” that make you want to consume the whole thing, then we believe your taste buds will be pleased.

I truly believe they have figured out the exact measurements on how to use Stevia in baking. Honey Bear took me to a health food store the other day and the gentleman came across as being super knowledgeable....well, he turned me off from trying to bake with anything other then sugar. He said the taste and texture would be sacrificed too much - well, he must not know about NuNatural and their products as we were VERY pleased with the cookie bar recipe.

NuNatural has many years of experience providing nutritional supplements and uses only the highest quality herbs and nutrients to make their products. A biggy for me is, they belong to the National Nutritional Foods Association (NNFA) and the TruLabel Program.

They offer Quality ALL-NATURAL products from their Eugene, Oregon Headquarters and have for over 20 years, been assisting people following a healthier lifestyle & healthy diet. You can find NuNaturals products in thousands of stores Coast to Coast, plus many 5 Star Health/Spa Resorts, Doctor’s Clinics, and Restaurants around the Country! So you don't have to think their products are only for the rich and famous - quality, service and really great prices are all excellent selling points for me and since I am working hard on Honey Bear and my health, let me tell you, their uses for Stevia has blown me away!

We recieved from NuNaturals:
NuStevia™ White Stevia™ 100 Packets
White Stevia™ Extract Powder contains the flowing agent maltodextrin, a food grade carbohydrate derived from grain. This form is perfect for sprinkling on cereal, yogurt as well as mixing in beverages. One quarter to three quarters of a teaspoon is the recommended serving. White Stevia Powder contains 60% more Stevia extract than most other brands on the market. The cost to get the same sweet taste of other brands can be up to 2 1/2 times more expensive compared to NuNaturals. NuNaturals White Stevia Powder will save you money.

I am a die-hard Splenda fan, I admit it. That's why I was a bit hesitant, but with as critical as I can be about something, I have nothing but praise to NuNatural - job well done, they sold me on these Stevia packs. In coffee, hot tea...even Honey Bear didn't realize I made a change!

We also received a can of baking blend, which their product description was right, You can substitute NuStevia Sweetener™ for sugar in most recipes. For example, if a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, use 1 cup of NuStevia Sweetener™ instead. Muffins, sweet bread...pancakes...just take your favorite recipe and give it a try, let Ron know what you think! I am thoroughly convinced that the baking blends with their added fibers, are a sure bet on helping us with my habitual baking! I wont feel so guilty serving our favorite homemade deserts knowing that not only am I eliminating the sugar (Honey Bear and I have a problem with that), but I am also adding fiber - how cool is that?!

Also, we recieved Pure Liquid™ Clear Stevia™ Glass Bottle 2 oz and as their site states:
NuNaturals has developed this easy to use liquid that allows the most accurate measurement of Stevia Extract. This liquid is so concentrated, that only 5-10 drops are needed. I am still working out my own personal kinks on this one as I have a heavy hand, but I finally got it right and you can make some incredible, I mean INCREDIBLE tasting iced tea with it! I am sick of drinking plain iced tea an splenda does NOT dissolve well in cold water. You don't have to worry about that with Pure Liquid™ Clear Steviabecause there is nothing to melt! And speaking of liquid Stevia, they offer Pure Liquid™ Alcohol Free Stevia™ Glass Bottle 2 oz leaving no one out!

We also tried the Pure Liquid™ Vanilla Alcohol Free Stevia™ Glass Bottle 2 oz - Honey Bear likes plain yogurt mixed with granola (too bitter for me) and I like vanilla with the stir in fruit, but that's too sweet for him....comprimise!! Yep, thanks to NuNatural we BOTH can eat yogurt THE SAME WAY!! Yeah! A huge plus for us, that's for sure! You mix this Vanilla Alcohol Free Stevia into plain yogurt and stir in fruit OR granola and it tastes better then any of that carbo laden store shelf product we have all come to know and accept.

Ahhhh, it is so nice to enjoy sweet treats again without the guilt and to enjoy them TOGETHER.....

But wait...I am not done yet! Ron included a 2 oz. size of their most concentrated Stevia form: NuStevia™­ White Stevia™ Extract Powder 1 oz Just like the commercial, A little dab will do ya...and its true! NuNaturals Pure NuStevia Extract contains absolutely no calories. This stuff can turn you back on to Kool-aid (those unsweetened packs) and lemonade. This is something you will have to work with to how sweet your family likes their, Honey Bear likes it sweet and I am a middle of the road kind of person. But...this is just another area where once I remove the habitual guilt of what I was causing myself to feel, I now, let me rephrase that...I ENJOY serving us some off limit foods and beverages.

I cant even begin to thank Ron and NuNaturals enough for not only sending us some really awesome products to review, but for turning me onto a product I enjoy having in our home!

Thank you so much NuNaturals!

In closing, why not stop by the NuNaturals site - take a look around, check out their products and take my word for it....the products are as described on the site and definitely come through for you.
