Q: What is the shelf life?
A: Each canister has an expiration date printed on the bottom package. Please store in a cool, dry place, tightly sealed.
Q: What are Steviol Glycosides and why did we add them into the formula?
Steviol glycosides are simply stevia leaf extract. This is a new naming convention required by FDA, but represents the same natural non-caloric sweetener we’ve used historically in our Primal Fuel. They provide a pleasant sweetness, combined with monk fruit extract, without adding sugar.
Q: What is monk fruit extract?
This is a non-caloric natural sweetener derived from the monk fruit (also known as luo han guo). It is native to Asia, and provides a pleasant sweetness, combined with steviol glycosides, without adding sugar.
Q: The Chocolate Primal Fuel contains cocoa powder -- does that mean there is caffeine?
A: A tablespoon of cocoa powder has about 12 milligrams of caffeine - not much, but it can affect an individual who is sensitive to caffeine. A serving of Primal Fuel has even less than a tablespoon of cocoa powder, however, if small amounts of caffeine keep you awake, you may want to have your shakes earlier in the day or choose the Vanilla Fuel instead.
