Enjoying Nutreat and Health Benefits
Do I have to refrigerate? What about after opening?
The product is made in a way that allows it to remain shelf-stable, making it convenient for taking with you wherever you go. After opening, the product should be consumed in the next several hours or refrigerated if you want to keep it for longer.
How long does the product last?
Usually not very long because it’s so delicious. However, it is good for at least six months unopened - see the best by date on the sticker at the bottom of the cup. Once opened it should be refrigerated and consumed within 5 days.
Why is my product separated?
This is a natural product made with real ingredients. So, they can separate. All you have to do is give it a stir and enjoy!
Why does your product cause me to be gassy?
Eating Nutreat may make some people a little gassy. This is normal and means it’s working! Fiber helps you feel full and feeds healthy bacteria in your gut. As your body gets used to the right amount of fiber, everything gets back to a new, healthier normal.
Why do you have so much saturated fat?
Until recently, fat has been the enemy. However, we are now learning that fat plays a critical role in keeping you full and providing stable, long-burning energy. And don't worry, our saturated fat comes from coconuts which have a list of health benefits. You can read more about our coconut ingredient here.
