Our pellets are very small. Each amber glass bottle of Jackson’s Mineral Salts contains at least 500 pellets and has 20-22g of pellets per bottle. Doing the math, that means each pellet contains approximately 40-44mg of sugar. How small is that? It's 1/105 of a teaspoon of sugar (4.2g).
Not only that, but did you know that our pellets are made from organic, Kosher, non-GMO beet sugar? The beets used to make the pellets are grown organically in Europe. Beet sugar has a special advantage of not using bone char to filter it during the processing. This is great for vegans and people concerned about the use of animal byproducts to process our foods, natural health products, and cosmetics. In contrast, bone char is frequently used for processing cane sugar and vegans should be aware of this too.
How many carbohydrates are in your cell salts? Can I take if I am intermittent fasting?
Sugars are part of the carbohydrates group. There are 4 calories in 1g of sugar. Each bottle of Jackson's Mineral Salts contains approximately 500 pellets or 20-22g of sugar. That works out to 0.176 calories per pellets or 0.7 calories per standard dose of 4 pellets.
If you believe that breaking the fast is consuming over 1g carbs, then it is safe to have Jackson's Mineral Salts during intermittent fasting.
