Frequently Asked Questions
Nutrition and Ingredients
What is the shelf life of MUIR Energy?
Nine (9) months from the manufacturing date.
Once opened, do MUIR Energy jams and spreads need to be refrigerated?
No. Our products have a very low water content, which allows them to remain shelf stable for at least 6 months from the manufacturing date. This means you can store your Muir jams and spreads in your pantry, desk drawer at work, or your gym bag; or take them with you on a camping or road trip. You can refrigerate our products, but they will get thicker and be harder to spread.
When should I use MUIR Energy before or during a workout?
|Burn Rate||Before Activity||During Activity|
|Fast Burning||5 minutes*||45 - 60 minutes|
|Slow Burning||5 minutes*||60 - 75 minutes|
*Muir Energy metabolizes very efficiently, and is easy on the stomach - the energy it provides is smooth and steady, and subtle - you feel like you can just keep going without a significant spike up or down in perceived energy level.
Most runners start a race with slow burning, with or without mate, then finish the race with fast burning/savory flavors with or without mate. For example, for a half marathon start with Cacao Almond or Cashew Vanilla Mate, by mile 10 eat a Blackberry Thyme, Red Raspberry Mate, or Passion Fruit Pineapple Banana.
What is the difference between slow burning and fast burning energy?
Our Slow Burning gels are made with raw nut and seed butters. Their healthy fats and protein metabolize slow ‘n’ steady, and leave you feeling satiated longer. Combined with our mineral rich, low glycemic electrolyte base, the result is a sustained fuel source for longer adventures.
Our Fast Burning gels are made with dehydrated fruits and vegetables. Removing the water means we can pack in more flavor and nutrition per pouch. The natural simple sugars from fruits and veggies metabolize quickly. Combined with our mineral-rich, low glycemic electrolyte base, the result is a clean ‘n’ fast fuel source for your shorter adventures.
Are Muir Energy products easy on the stomach?
I have a peanut allergy. Is MUIR Energy safe for me?
Yes! All of our products are peanut-free and processed in a peanut-free facility. You are safe to enjoy all of our tasty products.
Why do you use essential oils?
To maintain the minimalist approach to our formulations. The essential oils we use are carefully chosen for their flavor, homeopathic magic and powerful preservative properties. All in one drop!
I’ve been using MUIR in extremely cold temperatures and it seems to be freezing on me. What can I do about this?
MUIR is made with real food ingredients and real food freezes or thickens considerably at low temperatures. However, we have found that body heat is an effective antidote to combat these thermal effects. Put your MUIR pouch in your hand a few minutes before use, or keep it in a pocket close to your body, and let heat transfer do the rest.
MUIR Energy is thicker than other gels. Why is that?
Bacteria and pathogens proliferate in an aqueous environment. To keep their products food safe, thinner or watery gels must use synthetic preservatives. We use exclusively real food ingredients with no synthetic preservatives. We have accomplished this by reducing the water activity in our products. This results in a thicker, more viscous - as well as more flavorful, nutritionally and calorically dense - product.

From time to time we offer sales and discount codes on select products. Only one discount code is allowed per order. If you're trying to use a code and it doesn't work:
1. It is no longer valid. This is the most likely reason. If you have that is no longer valid, contact the person who gave you the code and let them know.
2. Your order does not qualify for a discount. Sometimes discount codes only apply to certain orders. Often, orders must be $25 or greater for a code to work. Other times only certain products or categories will be discounted. For example, discounts typically don't apply to jars.
3. You have already used this coupon. Most of our discounts are single use, so if you have used this discount code in the past, there is a good chance it will not be valid for a second purchase.
4. We're having a site-wide sale. Sometimes we have site-wide sales, you'll know because prices of certain products will be slashed and lower prices will show up next to them.
How does free shipping work with discounts?
Free shipping is based on the net price of the order, i.e. the price of the order after the discount is applied.
• To receive free shipping with a 10% discount, you’d need to spend $83.33 or more. --> $83.33 - $8.33 (10% off) = $75.00 = free shipping.
