There are a few things that set LivBar whole-food bars apart from the dozens and dozens of other bars to choose from at stores like Natural Grocers or Whole Foods.
First, the company is solar-powered and uses the industry’s only home-compostable wrapper. That’s awesome, but when it comes to a food bar, the ingredients and taste are the number one concern. Every LivBar is USDA certified organic; low-allergen; plant-based; made with superfood, immunity-supporting ingredients; and baked, giving it a crunchy and chewy texture.
As someone with celiac disease and other dietary restrictions, my selection is limited to the “super healthy” bars, and they are not always the most enjoyable. Enter the LivBar. I selected the ginger, lemon, turmeric flavor first.
The top of the bar wrapper includes a list of ingredient credentials and what the bars are free from: Vegan, Gluten Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free, Corn Free, and GMO free. This pretty much covers my food restrictions and might leave some people asking, What’s left?
Well, real food. LivBars are full of seeds, brown rice, flax meal, quinoa, a bit of sugar, and loads of flavor with a great, nutty texture and several unique flavors to choose from. Other options include blueberry, vanilla, kale; raspberry, kale, maca; coffee, maple, cacao; and lemongrass, cherry, matcha. At 180 calories, it makes for a healthy, allergy-friendly snack on the trail or ski hill.
