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.
What is the difference between slow burning and fast burning energy?
Our Slow Burning products are made with raw nut butters. The healthy fats and protein in these nut butters metabolize slowly. When combined with our mineral rich and low glycemic electrolyte base, the result is a clean, sustained fuel source for your longer adventures.
Our Fast Burning products are made with dehydrated fruits and vegetables (we’ve removed the water to maximize flavor and nutrition density). These simple sugar sources metabolize quickly. When combined with our mineral rich and low glycemic electrolyte base, the result is a clean, fast fuel source for your shorter adventures.
Are Muir Energy products easy on the stomach?
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.
