Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

This Almond Spout Bar is 100% raw, organic and delicious. Ingredients include organic almonds (germinated), organic raisins, organic raw agave nectar and organic cardamom. We love the simplicity of this bar! Dedicated to organic foods of the highest quality Gopal's Healthfoods is one of the leaders in the organic raw food industry. It is still one of the few companies that will actually soak and germinate most of its nuts and seeds so that you can get maximum nutrition and absorption from what you eat. You will find these products easily digestible and naturally flavorful, due to their high enzyme or life factor. Considering the value of most of the ingredients used, you will also find these products very reasonably priced.

Clif Bar

Clif Bar

Dietary Needs:
Vegan, Dairy Free

Clif Bar has a mix of whole grains, protein and fiber for sustained energy during workouts or help recovering afterward. While the nutrition content is decent, Clif Bars are generally more processed and contain cane sugar. These bars are made with soy protein which we do not recommend due to how difficult it is for the body to digest among many other adverse effects. We do like the fact that they employ a 'traceability program' which ensures where the ingredients come from. Ingredients are 70% organic.
