What makes our bars the better choice...

Test tubes filled with variety of nuts and seeds

It’s as much about what’s not inside as what is inside our Wholefood Meal Bars that makes them so good for you

Because while other meal and protein bars slap ‘natural’ or ‘sugar-free’ all over their packaging, they’re not always as healthy or natural as they claim. 

Think strange-sounding ingredients that you can barely pronounce (let alone spell), artificial sweeteners galore, inflammatory seed oils and ultra-processed ingredients by the bucketload. 

In today’s blog, find out what makes our bars so much better for your long-term health…

Most bars are junk food dressed as health food

Most energy, protein or meal bars are marketed as a healthy meal or snack alternative – and they're plastered with health claims.

But if you take a quick look at their ingredients, you’re likely to find a huge list of bulking agents, sugar alcohols/sweeteners, emulsifiers, gums, thickeners, humectants, starch, acidifying agents and artificial flavours.

These ingredients are used to make ultra-processed foods tastier, sweeter and smoother, whilst providing a better mouthfeel, bulking them out and helping them hold a specific shape.

Okay, but what’s the problem?

While these additives are all officially deemed safe and authorised to be used in foods in the UK, they provide no nutritional benefits whatsoever. At best, they’re nutritionally void. At worst, they could also:

  • Set off cravings for more sweet foods and make it hard to stay on track
  • Reduce the growth of ‘good’ gut bacteria but promote the growth of ‘bad’ gut bacteria
  • Cause gastrointestinal side effects like bloating, gas and diarrhoea

Why our bars are wholly different

Our bars are unapologetically real. We don’t use additives to make them look pretty or taste anything other than what they are: real, nutrient-dense food.

Think almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower kernels, coconut, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, walnuts and pistachio nuts, with no sugar, sweetener or artificial ingredients whatsoever. We bind all these ingredients together with nutritious cocoa butter, not sugar.

The result? Every bar is a source of protein, fibre and whole food fats, as well as vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients in their natural forms – nutrients that your body can actually recognise and absorb!

So what’s in it for me?

Whether you're in the office, working on a busy ward or rushing around after the kids, our Whole Food Meal Bars makes it easy to stick to a low-carb, whole foods lifestyle on-the-go.

Try half a bar to keep you going between meals or a whole bar when you need a small meal on the move. 

With 28g natural fat, 7g protein and only 5g carbs per bar, they’re designed to curb your hunger for hours and keep your energy levels sky high.
