Frequently Asked Questions
Learn More about Good 'n Natural® Bar
What makes your bar different than other bars?
- Our bars contain carefully selected nutrient dense whole foods.
- Our bars are gluten free, dairy free and vegan.
- Our first ingredient is a whole grain not a sweetener.
- Our bars are lower in sugar than so many other bars on the market.
Why are whole food ingredients better than processed ingredients and additives?
Whole foods are full of fiber and packed with nutrients. Research is actually showing that nutrients are utilized better in whole foods than nutrients from "added" vitamins and minerals. Scientists believe that whole foods contain precise amounts of numerous beneficial compounds, which work better in combination rather than being consumed individually.
Why do Good ‘n Natural® Bars contain more fat than other bars?
Good 'n Natural® Bars are packed with nutrient dense nuts and seeds. Nuts and seeds are high in monounsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids, both of which are extremely beneficial and can have many health benefits.
Why are Good ‘n Natural® Bars so filling?
The whole food ingredients in Good 'n Natural® Bar are full of fiber and healthy fats, both of which slow down digestion and give you the feeling of fullness. We have been told by many of our consumers that a bar for breakfast or lunch is filling enough to take them to the next meal. That pretty impressive for a 230 calorie bar!
Are the carbohydrates in your bars good for you?
Yes, all of the carbohydrates in our bars come from whole grains (rolled oats, and brown rice flour) as well as sweeteners (brown rice syrup and maple syrup). Brown rice syrup, although sweet, is made up of 50% complex carbohydrates. For this reason our bars are slow to digest, giving you sustained energy, which helps the body fight crashing, or bonking.
How much potassium does each bar have?
Our bars contain between 170 mg and 250 mg of potassium. For comparison 1 cup of Gatorade® Original G, an electrolyte replacement drink, generally contains only 30 mg of potassium. The potassium in our bars makes up approximately 5% of the dietary reference intakes (DRI's).
What is the shelf life of Good ‘n Natural® Bars?
The Good 'n Natural® Bar is made of dried fruits, seeds, nuts, rolled grains, and grain sweeteners that all have a long shelf life (12 months). However the bar tastes best if consumed in the first 9 months.
