Our Whole-Food Ingredients
Besides being an excellent all-natural sweetener, dates are are the glue that keep Together Bars...together. They are high in fiber and antioxidants, but most of all, when the bars are made in small batches and the dates are fresh, they're absolutely delicious.
Walnuts have higher antioxidant content than any other nut (as well as polyphenols and vitamin E). They are also loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids. This is why your Together Bar might feel a little slippery on your fingers. Don't worry, these are considered "good fats" and are known to be heart healthy as well.
This is our favorite. Pumpkin seeds are crammed with tryptophan (yes, it's what's in your thanksgiving turkey...but don't worry, you only get sleepy because you eat so much!). There's also a monster amount of magnesium, zinc and potassium, and they're incredibly dense - which makes them more filling, which can help you eat less, which can lead to a little weight loss...which is nice.
These fellas don't mess around. They're the ones that are in the bowl of nuts at the party that you push to the side. But you shouldn't. One Brazil Nut has more of the mineral selenium, also an antioxidant, than any other food. But, having too much selenium isn't a great thing either, so we limit our brazil nuts to well below the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI).
While chocolate is widely known as delicious, dark chocolate starts to make progress toward a healthy food, and if you remove the sugar, you're left with cocoa. When combined with our dates and blended with some of our sea salt, you end up with a nutrition bar that tastes similar to a chewy brownie. We dare you to eat only one bar in a pack at a time.
Not only do blueberries taste amazing, but they're one of the best sources of antioxidants and flavonoids you can find. We not only use quality 100% pure blueberry powder, we also add delicious dried blueberries. Each pack of our Blueberry + Turmeric bars has the benefits of over thirty blueberries!
Coconut has a unique combination of medium-chain fatty acids and antioxidants. We use 100% pure organic coconut, with no added ingredients. Our Coconut + Turmeric bars have been known to change people's minds about coconut bars. Just try one and see.
Turmeric is a root that's found in many Asian foods, like curry. Its active compound, curcumin, is a powerful antioxidant and works hard to fight inflammation. We love it, but too much turmeric can throw off the flavor, so we've used it sparingly, but a Together Bar a day should provide a steady source of turmeric/curcumin in your diet.
