Company Nearly Three-Quarters of a Way to Reaching Crowdfunding Campaign Goal
Low-carb, natural pancake syrup that actually tastes like the real thing is closer to reality, with Silver Fern™ Brand nearly reaching its $10,000 goal on Indiegogo. With more than $7,000 raised in less than 36 hours, the syrups—in maple, strawberry, blueberry, raspberry and blackberry flavors—will be on the shelves faster and at a lower cost, according to CEO Phil Cox.
Silver Fern Brand, a new Utah-based food company changing the way health-conscious consumers enjoy anything sweet, introduced natural, protein pancake mixes in May as part of its Paka baking mixes, but the high cost of the ingredients required to create natural, high-fiber syrups with only 2 or 3 net carbs per serving motivated founder and CEO Phil Cox to look directly to his target audience through crowdfunding to help create a large initial production run that would ultimately lower the price of the syrups.
“What’s the point of a healthier pancake if you are going to drench it in unhealthy syrup?” Cox wrote in a release this week. “I developed these for my own family, and after more than a year of research and testing, they’re ready to be shared with consumers so they aren’t using artificial ingredients or even real maple syrup, which while a healthier option, can have more than 50 diabetes-inducing grams of sugar per serving. These have two net carbs, giving you the real syrups flavor without the real problems. We’re making that possible but we need your help so more can enjoy healthier pancakes this summer!”
According to Cox, the syrups are sweetened with Kakato™ sweetener, a proprietary blend of stevia sweetener, monk fruit extract, tagatose prebiotic fiber and other natural sweeteners. They are natural and contain no artificial flavors or colors. They also don’t use sugar alcohols and have no added sugars.
