NO Conventional Sweeteners THE ISSUE:Conventional Sweeteners Can Contain Hu-Banned Ingredients & Cause Us To Crash.HU’s APPROACH:We Love Sweets, And We Will Always Love Sweets. We Believe They Have A Place In The Diet If You Are Smart About Which Sweeteners You Use And Stick To Them.In our own lives, we have experimented and know which ones make us feel good and which do not.

NO Gluten THE ISSUE:In Our Experience, When People Cut Out Gluten, They See Big Benefits.HU’s APPROACH:We Believe Eliminating Gluten Can Lead To A Wealth Of Health Benefits.It did for us. Gluten is a hot issue in nutrition and health today. While others are debating it, our experiences (and those of so many others in our lives) have taught us that gluten can cause lots of issues - gastrointestinal distress, inflammation, bad skin, brain fog, etc. We, and a lot of our friends, simply feel and look better when we stop eating gluten-containing grains. That's enough for us. As such, there is no gluten at Hu.
NO Soy THE ISSUE:Highly-GMO And Possible Endocrine Disrupter. Cheap Filler. Some studies show that soy can have adverse effects on health because it has a compound that is very similar in structure to human estrogen. It can potentially lower fertility in women, bring on early puberty, and negatively affect development of fetuses and children. Other studies show that it can act as an estrogen-mimicker in men. The jury is still out on how and in what ways it may or may not affect our health. Until the jury is in, we avoid it.HU’s APPROACH:No Soy - Either Directly Or Any Of Its Hidden Forms.

They may contribute to digestive issues, and they are cheap additives used to change the taste of food and increase shelf life.HU’s APPROACH:No Added Commercial Lecithins. Often times, what people love about a product is a direct result of their added lecithins, which make products taste smoother and silkier - more addictive. Some examples of lecithins are soy lecithin and sunflower lecithin. For many people, including ourselves, added commercial lecithins can be a gut irritant and lead to digestive discomfort.
