Frequently Asked Questions
What makes LoAdebar different?
With so many options available for you to choose from, why choose us? Glad you asked. There are several reasons actually. One of them being we are a completely organic product. Not just some, but all our ingredients are organic certified. Another is, we are a small business that produces each bar by hand in our certified organic kitchen, ensuring quality while maintaining personality. Our bars are minimally processed and heated, which means you can see every ingredient, and better yet, recognize what you see. You won’t find any fillers, preservatives, or artificial anything in our products. All of the good. None of the bad. Our best feature of all though, which is unfortunately not always the case with healthy options, is how we taste. A little like a granola bar, a little like a dessert, and a lot like a balanced protein bar versatile enough to use as a breakfast bar, on the go snack, or pre workout fuel, our nutrition makes us healthy, but our taste makes us awesome. But don’t take our word for it. Give us a try with our convenient sample pack option.
What does it mean to be Organic Certified?
We hear a lot about organic versus traditionally grown crops in recent years. And while there is a very diverse set of opinions on the subject, we opted to take the more expensive and what we believe is the better quality option, and went organic. What this means, is that every ingredient from every supplier must meet strict criteria for growing and cleaning crops, as well as entailing an annual inspection of our facility that evaluates every aspect of manufacturing to ensure the finished product has maintained its integrity from start to finish. Everything from what dish soap we use to how many bars we made compared against how many ingredients we ordered, are considered. There is a lot of cost as well as labor that goes into earning the organic seal, and is one of the contributing to factors to why there is a price difference between organic and non organic products.
What’s up with the BIG “A”?
We are often asked why the “A” is capitalized in the middle of the word “LoAdebar” in our logo. There is story behind our logo and name, which we cannot do justice in abbreviated form. It is a spiritual name with a spiritual meaning. To read about how we got our name and why, click here
About our chocolate:
We use a Fair Trade Vegan Italian Dark Chocolate. It is 70% bittersweet , and is sweetened with organic cane sugar.
Is this a raw bar?
In a word, no. We do not advertise LoAdebar as a raw bar; however, it is minimally heated so as to preserve as much of the nutritional value as possible. The binding agent, which is also the sweetener, requires heat to set up properly.
What is the shelf life of the bars?
Our bars are freshness guaranteed for 8 months from date packaged.
Does LoAdebar have added sugar?
LoAdebar is sweetened with date paste and brown rice syrup. There are no other sweeteners added in the original version. The Dark Chocolate bar has organic sugar cane in the bittersweet chocolate as well.
