With Halloween soon approaching, Aaron Zober brings on Sweet Apricity founder Tonya Butts. Tonya had been following the paleo diet for several years. After creating a caramel which her friend on the autoimmune protocol (AIP) diet could eat, Sweet Apricity was born. Tonya has since expanded into other caramel product along with marshmallows using grass fed gelatin. Tonya talks about how she’s been able to make the cleanest sweets without using refined sugar, grains, dairy, or even any emulsifying agents such as guar gum or xantham gum. Tonya then explains what she looks for in terms of sourcing her ingredients. Tonya talks as well about future plans for sourcing to make the products even more sustainable. Aaron and Tonya then discuss Halloween, the best options for eating real sweets, and what to hand out to trick-or-treaters.
