What Goes Into Our All-Natural Protein Bars?
When Dr. Jen Marone set out to create Dr. Jen’s Ultimate Protein Bar, she didn’t want to just create something that would sell. She was fiercely driven by the desire to create something that would have loads of nutrition, not trigger food allergies, and taste ridiculously delicious, too. After months and months of creating prototypes in her test kitchen, then testing them on her family and friends (none of whom can get enough of her bars, we might add!), she finally found just the right formula.
Here are some of the benefits you’ll find in our all-natural protein bars!
It seems that gluten, the protein that’s commonly found in many grains, is lurking in just about everything. But with more and more people being diagnosed with celiac disease and gluten intolerance, it’s important now more than ever to know exactly what you’re eating. Dr. Jen herself has a gluten allergy, and set out to formulate a tasty protein bar that had not a lick of gluten in it!
Contains No Dairy Products
So many of us love dairy products…but our bodies don’t! Dairy is found in a number of products, but many might not realize the havoc that lactose intolerance can wreak on the body. Lactose is a sugar found in milk that many can’t digest very well—it can cause gas, bloating, cramps, diarrhea, and abdominal pain, as well as inflammation in the joints and body.
No Preservatives or Fillers
Dr. Jen believes in all-natural ingredients, so you won’t find any fillers, preservatives, dyes, or junk in her all-natural protein bars. The only ingredients you’ll find are the ones that will make a nutritional contribution to give you the maximum benefit possible!
Non-GMO Protein Bar
Genetically modified organisms, or GMOs for short, are foods that have been genetically engineered in a lab or otherwise. Many times, they’re laden with chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, and can potentially lead to health effects. When searching for foods, always look out for the non-GMO label, and opt for organic and natural ingredients whenever possible. One of our priorities when creating the Ultimate Protein Bar was to create a non-GMO protein bar—we’re certain you’ll be happy with the result!
Food allergies can pose a huge health risk for many, and where some fall on the food allergy spectrum as having minor intolerances, others can have serious health emergencies. Dr. Jen has formulated her bars to be free of dairy, soy, gluten, and corn, which can all trigger food allergies.
Low in Sugar
Sugar is found in so many foods, and what’s worse is that many food manufacturers disguise sugar as other ingredients. You’ll see it called corn syrup, dextrose, maltose, and other -ose words. Sometimes, artificial sweeteners can also creep into our foods, and some of those aren’t any better. Sugar can lead to a host of health issues, a few of which include diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and dementia.
Tasty Protein Bars
How many times have you purchased a healthy protein bar, only to bite into it and feel so much regret? And because you probably paid a pretty penny, you choked the whole thing down but instead of feeling healthier afterward, you felt pretty icky. This is not the case with Dr. Jen’s bars! We make tasty protein bars that come in some pretty delicious flavors, and they have a creamy, smooth texture—minus the aftertaste!
Packed with Superfoods
Our all-natural protein bars have some pretty amazing ingredients in them that set them apart from the rest. Rather than toss in a bunch of vitamins for nutrition, we’ve used real foods such as quinoa, kale, spinach, and pea protein.
