vThe top four nutritional super food bars you won’t find in stores!

1 Feb

Browsing through the food bar section of a local health food store the other day, I found myself extremely disappointed in the selection. Most of the food bars available at retail fall into either the “energy” category (made with excessive sweeteners), or the “protein” category (made with soy protein). Soy protein, as you may know, is usually extracted from GMO soy using hexane, an explosive toxic chemical (http://www.naturalnews.com/026303_s…).

Why is soy protein used so frequently in food bars? Because it’s cheap. Dirt cheap. And by using soy protein, bar manufacturers can claim “high protein” on the label. But you’d be hard pressed to find a protein bar in any store that isn’t made with soy protein. Yuck.

Needless to say, I didn’t buy any food bars at the health food store. Instead, I went home and opened up some of my own food bars that I’m going to share with you here. These are four amazing food bars (from four different companies) that you may have never even heard of because they aren’t readily available in health food stores (and probably never will be).

Boundless Nutrition Oatmega-3 Wellness Bar

Rather than using cheap soy protein, the Boundless Nutrition Oatmega-3 Wellness Bar (http://www.boundlessnutrition.com/?…) uses a high-end whey protein as its protein source. This gives the bar a truly impressive nutritional profile that’s high in protein without using soy derivatives.

These bars, which are available in flavors like Dark Chocolate Mint and Dark Chocolate Peanut, contain 300mg of omega-3s, green tea extracts, and other truly natural ingredients. It’s not a bar for vegans, obviously, but for those who like high quality whey protein, this is truly one of the best protein bars I’ve ever found. Check out their ingredients here: http://www.boundlessnutrition.com/?…

These bars are really delicious, by the way. I’ve interviewed the founder of Boundless Nutrition, a company based in Austin, Texas (yes, Austin!), and plan to be rolling those videos soon on NaturalNews.TV. This is a relatively new company, but they look poised to make a real difference in the protein bar market.

The GoodOnYa Bar

Here’s a really cool USDA Organic gluten free, non-GMO, soy–free, dairy-free food bar that’s fast becoming popular among vegetarians and vegans: The GoodOnYa Bar (www.TheGoodOnYaBar.com).

They’re made with organic cold milled flax, sesame and hemp seeds, along with Celtic sea salt, organic raw honey and other key ingredients depending on the flavor. Even though they’re not 100% raw, these are suitable for raw food vegans in my view.

The GoodOnYa Bar is quite delicious. Although it definitely has a “flaxy” kind of taste, the entire blend of various ingredients is really outstanding. I’m really impressed with this bar and this company. They seem to have a deep-rooted dedication to real food. They’re based in Solana Beach, California, and I expect to be seeing more great stuff from this company in the years ahead.

Boku Super Food Bar

The Boku Super Food Bar remains my single most favorite superfood bar. I’m on the road quite a lot these days, and I find that I’m always bringing a box of Boku Super Food Bars with me. It has become my essential travel food.

This is a gluten free, dairy free, soy free, USDA organic, Kosher and 100% delicious chocolate fudge brownie food bar that was actually created with the help of over 1,000 NaturalNews readers! (http://www.naturalnews.com/030340_B…)

The real highlights of this bar are that it’s not too sweet (very low sweetener use), it uses only plant-based proteins, and it’s based on organic almond butter and the Boku super food blend which is just loaded with plant-based nutrients.

Get some at: http://shop.bokusuperfood.com/detai…

While you’re at it, I strongly recommend the Boku Immune Tonic, by the way, which is just ridiculously good for boosting immune function during the winter flu season. And it tastes great, too, so even kids and teens enjoy taking this immune-boosting liquid: http://shop.bokusuperfood.com/items…

This Boku Super Food Bar is truly at the very top of the list of the most innovative and nutritious food bars that have ever been created. And no, it’s not sold by us. It’s sold by the Boku Superfood company who took the initiative and manufactured it for people to enjoy. NaturalNews readers have already bought nearly 100,000 of these bars since the original launch. It’s really popular among those who know their nutrition.

Cocochia bars from Living Fuel

My other favorite food bar is the CocoChia bar from Living Fuel (www.LivingFuel.com). It’s based on organic coconut and whole chia seeds, then it mixes in raw almond butter, some sugar alcohol sweeteners and various probiotics, among other minor ingredients.

It’s positioned as a “sustained energy” food bar because the chia really tend to slow the digestion of fats and carbs. I find this is a really good nutritional profile for anyone trying to avoid spiking their blood sugar. Chia seeds are my favorite plant-based source of omega-3! They taste better than flax, too, in my opinion.

Cocochia has been around a few years, but not everybody knows about it because it’s only sold directly through LivingFuel.com. A lot of these high-end nutritional products I’m mentioning here simply don’t have the profit margins to be carried by retail channels. That’s why many of the best nutritional products are often only available directly from their manufacturers.

Summary of my top four food bars:

Boundless Nutrition Oatmega-3 Wellness Bar (www.BoundlessNutrition.com)

The GoodOnYa Bar (www.TheGoodOnYaBar.com)

Boku Super Food Bar (www.BokuSuperfood.com)

CocoChia Bar (www.LivingFuel.com)

There are other high-quality food bars on the market, of course. These are just the top four I’m aware of right now. Later in the spring, I’ll be doing a more comprehensive food bar roundup and asking for samples from more companies that we can list and compare. In the mean time, these four food bars are really outstanding choices.

What’s the best bar for you?

Best bar for kids? Probably the Boundless Nutrition bar or the Boku Super Food bar.

Best bar for vegans? Definitely the GoodOnYa Bar or the Boku bar.

Best bar for diabetics? I like the nutritional profile of CocoChia, which doesn’t use any honey or other high-glycemic sweeteners.

Best bar for athletes? Both the Boku Food Bar and the Boundless Nutrition bar are higher in protein and great for sustained energy.

Enjoy!
