What is inside
Here are just a few of the reasons for some of our ingredient choices…
Organic Dates: Dates are rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals. Weight for weight, dates contain more potassium than bananas, and they are also a source of calcium, magnesium, beta carotene and B vitamins.
Organic Figs: Figs are high in potassium, fiber, calcium and iron. A half-cup of figs contains as much calcium as a half-cup of milk.
Organic Almonds: Almonds contain plant protein, essential minerals, omega-6 fats and dietary fiber. They also provide calcium, potassium, magnesium, vitamin E and phosphorous.
Organic Brown Rice Protein: Brown rice protein is an excellent source of vegan, hypo-allergenic protein. It is a complete protein because it contains all nine essential amino acids, plus all other non-essential amino acids. It is non-GMO, with only water and natural enzymes used to digest the carbohydrate portion of the rice and isolate the protein.
Organic Milled Flaxseed: Flaxseeds contain omega-3 fats and are a great source of dietary fiber, protein, iron and potassium. In addition to numerous other health benefits, flaxseeds are known to help stabilize blood sugar and control cholesterol.
Organic Jerusalem Artichoke Powder: Jerusalem artichoke powder is high in dietary fiber, potassium and iron. It is a source of protein, containing 7 of 9 essential amino acids. It is also a natural whole source of inulin (fructo-oligosaccharides), which has a prebiotic effect beneficial to intestinal health, and helps regulate blood sugar levels.
Organic Agave Nectar: Agave Nectar is extracted from Mexico’s Agave cactus plant. It is naturally high in fructose, which does not stimulate digestive insulin secretion as do other sugars. It has a low Glycemic Index to help keep blood sugar levels stable.
Organic Veggie Blend: Our VEGGIE TROPICAL TWIST bar contains a blend of organic carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, green pepper, cabbage, spinach and beets, plus organic dates, figs and pineapple. One bar contains 4 servings of veggies & fruit!
