Natural Factors Whole Earth and Sea Organic Vegan Greens Protein Bar 15g
The Natural Factors Organic Vegan Greens Protein Bar is the next generation of on-the-go whole-food nutrition. The ingredients are 80% raw and 100% gluten-free, organic, non-GMO, and kosher.*
The easy-to-digest plant-based protein (from brown rice, buckwheat, peanut butter, and chia) conveniently boosts protein intake without needing to consume animal products, soy, dairy, or gluten. In addition to protein, the Greens Protein Bar is packed with green superfoods, including wheat and barley grass juice, spirulina, and broccoli sprouts. It also contains dates, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, and is an excellent source of fiber – providing 9 g of fiber, or 36% of the daily recommended intake (DRI) – and a good source of iron ( 15% of the DRI). A healthier alternative to bars loaded with artificial flavors and calories, the naturally sweetened formula helps keep you satisfied and energized between meals.*
Cautions: Contains peanuts. May contain pieces of date pits, stems, nut shells or seeds.
Much of the protein comes from plant-based organic brown rice. Research has shown that brown rice protein offers benefits virtually identical to the dairy-based whey protein popular with bodybuilders. The rice protein is balanced by a rich, creamy peanut butter that also contributes to the great flavour. And, of course, we couldn’t skip chocolate. But this is not just any chocolate; it’s antioxidant-rich, dark chocolate. What you won’t find in our green protein bars is high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) or other unhealthy sugars. Our bar is sweetened with NuVous™ (containing inulin, stevia, orange flavour and lycii berry extract).
