The core of each bar is the Real Food Base. It’s made up of delicious food groups measured to the right proportions that meet USDA guidelines for healthy eating.
How is it calculated?
We take the recommended daily consumption of all the major food groups for both men and women, figure out the exact ratio of each food group and then take the average of the men’s and women’s portions. (We exclude dairy, since many people have dairy allergies and there are other ways to get the necessary calcium.)
This approach creates a perfectly balanced food profile.
What is added to the Real Food Base?
To the base we add different natural flavoring depending on the bar. Our bars also have added protein and fruit to meet the needs of active people (and to make it taste delicious!).
