What is a MeeNut?
The owner’s name is Mee
and she creates all the nut butter
, hence the name MeeNut Butter
. Although she is a bit "nutty" and "special" by nature, unfortunately a MeeNut is not a cool new kind of nut we discovered.
What do you mean by RX and Firebreather?
They are just fancy names for the 8oz and 16oz size jars respectively. Mee Eat Paleo grew out of a personal need and want for a paleo substitute for peanut butter and as a CrossFit coach and athlete, these terms RX & Firebreather were just a part of my vernacular at the time. RX simply refers to doing a CrossFit workout “as prescribed” thus referring to a typical 8oz size jar. Firebreather refers to a beast of an athlete who goes above and beyond the “prescribed” workout thus referring to the larger 16oz jar.
Are you certified organic?
As of now, we are not officially certified organic because only some, not all, our ingredients are USDA certified organic. We try our best to source as responsibly and locally as possible. For instance our almonds come straight from the farm here in California and are not fumigated or sprayed; they just do not have the official organic certification.
Are you Non-GMO Project Verified?

Are your almonds pasteurized?
Yes. All almonds in the US are required by law to be pasteurized. So "raw" is not actually raw, rather they are exposed to either chemical or steam pasteurization. However, I make sure that the almonds I use are NEVER exposed to chemicals like PPO (propylene oxide). They are steam pasteurized and grown on a local family farm here in California's central valley.
Are your nuts & seeds sprouted? What does that even mean?
Not yet. We hope to in the very near future! Sprouting is one of the most effective ways of removing the phytic acid and increasing digestibility and bioavailability of nutrients and simply means they are soaked in water to the point of germination (sprouting) and then dehydrated at a very low temperature.
Are your nuts & seeds roasted?
Yes. Although not as ideal as sprouting, roasting is another way to help remove the phytic acid and help alleviate digestion and absorption of nutrients. Roasting temperatures are kept low and slow and keep them from burning. Not to mention roasted nuts are also super tasty!
Do you add any sugars to your products?
NEVER. You can trust that there are never any added sugars in our products, not even ones that are considered "acceptable" such as honey, maple, stevia or coconut sugar. Feel free to add these to our products yourselves for a clean treat but we won't do it for you. ;)
I put my jar in the fridge and now it's rock hard, what happened?
Coconut cream/oil will solidify at & below room temperature (about 70-75 degrees F) so depending on where it is being shipped the nut butter may harden and/or settle en route. If this is the case or if you have it refrigerated, you can easily warm it up by letting thaw out at room temperature or by keeping about 3/4 of the jar in a bowl of hot water for about 15-30 minutes (sadly this will ruin your label but oh well ☺). You may have to switch out the water a couple times if the butter is extremely cold and hardened. I don't own or use a microwave but if you do, a few seconds in there will work too. Once warmed up, stir and enjoy! You may opt to store it in your cupboard - if so, do at your own risk and please be sure it is stored away from direct sunlight at or below room temperature.
Will the oil separate from the nut butter? Oil separation is natural and as with all nut butters not containing any chemicals or preservatives, is bound to happen eventually.
Why is shipping and handling so expensive?
MeeNut Butter is housed in heavy glass jars that unfortunately require extra TLC for shipping and handling.
