Nutritious & Delicious

Skip the sugar crash and fuel yourself with our sorghum-sweetened, drool-worthy flavors.

Sorghum syrup is a natural, plant-based sweetener made from the juices of an ancient grass grown in the South.

Loaded with iron, vitamin C, potassium and antioxidants, it boasts a low glycemic load (blood sugar impact) with a nutrient punch, coupled with a rich sweet flavor.

Wish you could eat granola but worry about sugar?

  • Most granolas are refined sugar bombs. 
  • Refined sugar serves up sugar crashes. 
  • Blood sugar spikes make us sluggish & heavy.
  • Don’t feel like trash (or skip breakfast completely!).

It’s hard to eat healthy on the go sometimes.

We get it. When you’re short on time or you’re just plain tired, it’s easy to reach for foods that are loaded with sugars and artificial ingredients, or you skip eating all together! 

We took care of the nutrition for you, so all you have to do is reach for our southern sorghum-sweetened granola.

Powerhouse Ingredients from Small Scale Farmers around Kentucky

Pure Cane Sorghum Syrup

Townsend Sorghum Mill in Jeffersonville, KY.

"Townsend’s Sorghum has been produced on the same farm in Jeffersonville, Kentucky since the late 1800s. Townsend’s Sorghum is currently being produced by the fifth generation family patriarch Danny Townsend. Danny took the reins of the family business in the mid-1980s. Since that time, Townsend’s Sorghum has been instrumental in sorghum’s revival."


Shelled Hemp Seeds

Victory Hemp Foods in Carrolton, KY.

"In 2014, with the passage of the Farm Bill re-legitimizing industrial hemp production, our Founder Chad Rosen moved to Kentucky, once America’s hemp heartland. He began work to grow the supply chain for hemp seed in the U.S. and Victory Hemp Foods was born in 2016."


Appalachian Sea Salt

J.Q. Dickinson Appalachian Mercantile in Malden, WV.

“Sourced from an ancient, untouched sea called the Iapetus Ocean – predating the Atlantic Ocean, yet trapped below the Appalachian mountains — our salt is free of contaminants and heavy metals that may be found in other oceans. Gleaned from the earth by an underground brine aquifer, the salt is then processed naturally using the power of the sun and gentle mountain breezes.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is sorghum better than sugar?

While refined sugar is derived from a natural source, its production involves a process that strips away all additional components from sugarcane or sugarbeet, ultimately leaving only the isolated sugar. Commonly found in solid form, table sugar consists of equal portions of glucose and fructose. In contrast, sorghum emerges as a superior sweetener due to its unprocessed nature. Derived from the sweet sorghum plant, sorghum syrup retains its natural goodness, offering a more wholesome alternative. Unlike refined sugar, sorghum maintains a balance of nutrients and doesn't undergo the same intense processing, making it a healthier choice for those seeking a natural and less refined sweetening option.

What’s the glycemic impact?

Sorghum syrup generally has a lower glycemic impact compared to refined sugar. The glycemic index (GI) measures how quickly a carbohydrate-containing food raises blood glucose levels. Foods with a lower GI release glucose more slowly into the bloodstream, providing a more sustained and gradual energy release. Sorghum syrup, being a complex carbohydrate, has a lower glycemic index than refined sugar, which consists mainly of sucrose. The natural composition of sorghum includes various nutrients and fibers that can slow down the absorption of sugars, leading to a more gradual increase in blood sugar levels. Choosing sweeteners with a lower glycemic impact is often recommended for those looking to manage blood sugar levels or follow a low-glycemic diet. However, individual responses to different sweeteners may vary, and it's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional or nutritionist for personalized advice based on specific health considerations.

Why is Sweetgrass Granola better for diabetics?

Sweetgrass Granola presents a better option for individuals managing diabetes due to several key factors:

1. Lower Glycemic Impact: Sweetgrass Granola is crafted with ingredients that have a lower glycemic index, meaning it has a more gradual impact on blood sugar levels. This can help individuals with diabetes manage their blood glucose more effectively.

2. Natural Sweeteners: Unlike granolas that rely on refined sugars, Sweetgrass Granola uses natural sweeteners, such as Appalachian grown sorghum syrup, honey and maple syrup. These alternatives provide sweetness without causing rapid spikes in blood sugar levels.

3. High Fiber Content: Our granola is rich in dietary fiber, which can aid in controlling blood sugar levels. Fiber slows down the absorption of sugars, promoting a more stable and gradual release of glucose into the bloodstream.

4. Transparent Nutritional Information: We provide clear and transparent nutritional information on our packaging, empowering individuals with diabetes to make informed choices that align with their dietary needs.

It's crucial to note that individual responses to foods can vary, and those with diabetes should always consult with healthcare professionals or nutritionists to tailor their dietary choices to their specific health conditions and needs. Sweetgrass Granola aims to offer a flavorful, nutritious, and diabetes-friendly option for those seeking a mindful approach to their diet.
