The GnuSanté Team

Our Story

nutrition without compromise

As a mom of active kids, I was always looking for that elusive healthy drink that my kids would love, that would give them the pick-me-up they needed, without all the added sugar. I couldn’t find anything.

At the same time, my dad, Ron, a food scientist, was working on beverage formulas for large corporations and was growing frustrated with the constant compromise on nutrition to meet bottom lines.

We both wanted better. So, we created GnuSanté, for the express purpose of delivering honest, nutritional benefits. We wanted to put the consumer before the corporation.

We use simple, healthy, non-GMO ingredients, sourced as locally as possible, and formulate them to deliver specific nutritional benefits. All of our business choices are centered around what’s best for the consumer and the environment.

We were told we couldn’t operate this. That we couldn’t succeed doing small batch production with quality ingredients at a higher price point. We’re proving them all wrong every day, because consumers deserve better and are starting to demand better.
