While Purely Elizabeth provides some decent cereals compared to the usual fare one sees with high fructose corn syrup, there are still some major nutritional differences between their granola and Muesli Munch. Let's take, for example, Purely Elizabeth Cranberry Pecan Ancient Grain Granola and compare it to Muesli Munch's Gluten Freedom Cocoa blend. The difference in nutrition content is significant.
Start with equivalent serving sizes for a fair comparison, so Muesli Munch 1/2 cup converted to 1-cup and Purely Elizabeth 1/3 cup converted to 1-cup:
Muesli Munch (Gluten Freedom Cocoa) Has More Protein, Fiber And No Added Sugar! 1-cup has only 12 grams total sugars, naturally occurring from organic dried fruits, with NO SUGAR ADDED!
1-cup Purely Elizabeth (Cranberry Pecan Ancient Grain Granola) has 21 grams of total sugars and 18 GRAMS ADDED SUGARS. Sugar is their second ingredient.
1-cup Muesli Munch (Gluten Freedom Cocoa) has more protein and fiber than 1-cup Purely Elizabeth (Cranberry Pecan Ancient Grain Granola). That's 24 grams protein and 18 grams fiber in Muesli Munch vs. only 9 grams protein and 6 grams fiber in Purely Elizabeth.
Muesli Munch (Gluten Freedom Cocoa) Has No Sodium.
1-cup Pureley Elizabeth (Cranberry Pecan Ancient Grain Granola) HAS 315 MG.
1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2: Place filling in 9-inch buttered pan.
3: Top with topping and bake 30 minutes.

Granola is too sugary and oatmeal is bland, these are the reasons Muesli Munch was formed. To create a breakfast cereal with all wholesome ingredients in every blend which provides a combination of great taste and nutritional benefits. We wanted our cereal crafted with only organic ingredients from nature, as all ingredients should be. Muesli Munch has 0g added sugars and healthy fat content from nuts and seeds instead of cheap filler oils. It’s also a versatile cereal that can be served quick with cold milk or yogurt or hot just like oatmeal. Our blends are a substantial meal that provide long lasting energy for the day.
We mix 100% whole grains, fruits, nuts, seeds and spices to provide a beneficial breakfast, as opposed to many granolas baked with sugar, oil and salt. Our passion and expertise is making premium breakfast cereal blends with quality as our top priority, we never cheapen our recipe formulations. Unlike many food corporations, which grow too fast, cut corners over time and diminish their original vision and quality as a result.
Not here, not us, Sean’s Muesli Munch sole mission is to provide a select few, top notch breakfast cereal blends, and only change with the tastes and preferences of our fans. In fact, due to overwhelming customer feedback, all of our blends are now gluten free. So we are listening. Keep the good words coming. We want to hear your feedback. Cheers! Sean
Some people say there is no big difference between products labeled “All Natural” and those with "USDA Certified Organic" labeling. They couldn't be more wrong. The benefits of buying certified organic foods versus those labeled “All Natural” is truly great and is very important to your health and the health of your family.
Part of being a conscious consumer is knowing the difference between products, products that APPEAR to be just as good as each other but when you look carefully, they really aren't the same. Being conscious of the differences -- being guaranteed and not being guaranteed -- will make a difference to your health. Not all “All Natural Products” or “Farm Fresh” have bad stuff in them … but given the regulations and strict certification of organic products, you just can’t know. There is NO guessing game with Certified Organic. Buying Certified Organic means you don’t have to wonder if this product really is “All natural” or if it has some stuff in it that you really don’t want to give to your family… And all the things that are important to you and your family are equally important to the families of those raising these products, and the earth that these crops are grown in. Part of that consciousness is that not only is your family safe, but their family is safe and the earth we all rely on has been well taken care of because you supported Organic.
Here’s some differences to consider:
THERE ARE required certifications for using the claim and mandatory yearly inspections to verify that:
1: NO toxic pesticides and herbicides are used
2: NO GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are used
3: NO Antibiotics are used
4: NO growth hormones are used
5: NO sewage sludge and irradiation is used
6: THERE ARE animal welfare requirements
7: THERE ARE lower levels of environmental pollution
8: THERE ARE audit trails from farm to table
The “All Natural” label cannot guarantee any of the above as none of the following is regulated under the All Natural label. THERE IS NOT a certifying agency for using this claim and the following practices so the following practices are all allowed:
1: THERE ARE toxic pesticides and herbicides allowed
2: THERE ARE (genetically modified organisms) allowed
3: THERE ARE Antibiotics allowed
4: THERE ARE growth hormones allowed
5: THERE ARE no standards for use of sewage sludge and irradiation
6: THERE ARE higher levels or environmental pollution than organic
7: NO animal welfare requirements
8: NO audit trails from farm to table … who knows where it’s been, how it was stored (or stored with or in or with what environmental controls), etc.
Is it really worth it to take chances with your health and that of your family? No, not at all! And Yes, “Certified Organic” usually costs a bit more. And it’s worth it!
