MariGold ingredients used in this recipe:

MariGold Whey Isolate is derived from sweet Irish milk given from Truly Grass-Fed™ cows who spend 95% of their time roaming freely and feasting upon the delicious green grasses of the breathtaking Irish countryside.

MariGold Unflavored Whey Protein Isolate has everything you want in a protein drink, and none of the things you don’t!

Crunchy Sweet Keto Snack (and only 1 NET CARB). We’ve created the perfect low-carb KETO snack. Now you can get all the crunchy-sweet taste you crave with NO ADDED SUGAR!

We start with one of the most “Keto friendly” nuts around – pecans.  Organic, Texas pecans at that! Then, we wrap them with a crispy, crunchy glaze. Except, unlike the typical glaze found in other crunchy nuts, ours isn’t loaded with sugar! Instead we use healthy chicory root fiber for added fiber and a touch of prebiotic sweetness that won’t affect your blood sugar. And,  we combine it with grass-fed ghee that’s loaded with healthy omegas and Vit K2.
