Product exposure to heat and freezing temperatures.

Functional Formularies Keto Peptide is designed to have a shelf-life of up to two years from the date it is cased based upon how the product is stored and handled over the time period. Under guidelines of our research laboratories, if Keto Peptide is stored and handled properly at ambient temperatures of 60º to 70º degrees Fahrenheit the maximum shelf-life of two years is within the maximum time frame for use.

Is it OK for Keto Peptide to sit outside in the heat for short periods of time?
Yes. Exposure to higher heats (75–100º+) for short periods of time will not negatively affect the nutritional values. The only time the nutritional values will begin to be affected is if the product is stored at high heat for extended periods of time (6–12+ months). If exposed to high heat for an extended period, the nutrient value may be decreased over time.​

My Keto Peptide was delivered and sat outside in freezing temperatures and is frozen. Is it OK to use?
Yes. Freezing can be a very good way to preserve the nutritional value, texture, and flavor of many foods. As long as the food was grown in a high-quality way (for example, organically grown) the overall nutrient retention in a frozen food will remain high. In other words, the vitamins and minerals will keep well when food is frozen.

If you do find that your Keto Peptide has been frozen, just store at ambient room temperature and it will thaw naturally. If you need a pouch right away, please thaw the unopened pouch gently. If you find that your product has been frozen, the product may separate a bit. The product is still perfectly good to use, just shake thoroughly or reblend in a blender to re-emulsify.

Does Liquid Hope and Nourish offer complete protein and all essential amino acids?

Functional Formularies formulas contain complete protein as defined by their protein sources offering all essential amino acids required by human metabolism.  Each formula contains a variety of whole plant ingredients that offer all of the 10 complimentary amino acids in adequate quantities.

Although no one ingredient provides a complete protein, the combination of two or more plant foods has long been recognized by all government nutrition and medical organizations, as well as the World Health Organization, as an effective means of supplying all age groups with ample quality protein.

Are your formulas vegan?

Our formulas utilize Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol). D3 naturally synthesizes in your skin during exposure to sunlight and it’s also a commercially prepared supplement made from the lanolin retrieved from washing lambs’ wool.

(Note: This form of vitamin D is considered okay for vegetarians because the animals are not killed. If it comes to a choice between the commercial formulas and the small amount of vitamin D3 in our formula, vegans will have to make that decision for themselves.  Other than the D3, our formulas are vegan.)
