Nut & fruit snack or “energy” bars can be a great portable source of whole-food energy, if you check your labels and make sure manufacturers aren’t cutting corners at the expense of your health with things like: -“natural flavors” (allows for a huge range of food additives) -chemical sweeteners (e.g. stevia extract, Maltitol, erythritol, Sucralose, etc.) -thickeners / emulsifiers (e.g. soy lecithin, dextrose) -artificial preservatives (e.g. tocopherols, ascorbic acids, glycerol, etc.) Instead, a good snack bar should be comprised entirely of REAL food ingredients, simply packaged into a nice portable format which makes it easy to re-fuel with some clean carbohydrates whenever you’d like (for example, before or after a workout). This is exactly why we sell Raw Bite’s line of bars, produced in Denmark. They use exclusively organic-certified fruits and nuts, plus a few other ingredients depending on the particular bar (for example, organic cacao in the chocolate variety). That’s it! Super simple, super transparent, organic-certified snack bars. We encourage you to compare the ingredients list of the Raw Bites bars to others on the market. You’ll see why we like them!
