BodyBar Protein

Our goal at BodyBar Protein is to bring protein bars back to basics, keep things simple, instead of filling it with countless ingredients we can’t pronounce.

I have taken what I have learned from the last 13 years and decided to put it to use by developing a line of protein bars that have minimal ingredients and no artificial ingredients.

What sets us apart?

BodyBar Protein will introduce a line of protein bars that will be Gluten-Free, Certified Paleo Friendly, nutritious AND great-tasting, without the artificial sugar aftertaste.

I am excited about this journey as an entrepreneur and hope that my story inspires you to live a healthier, happier life.

My journey to developing BodyBar Protein

In 2007, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, which caused me to be in and out of the hospital, undergo many tests, and invasive procedures. I was bounced from one doctor to the next, only to hear that the reason for the inflammatory bowel disease (a.k.a. Ulcerative Colitis) was unknown.

Shortly after being on steroids, I gained 30 pounds, had depression, could not leave the house, and enjoy life with my one-year-old toddler.

I decided to take matters into my own hands and began doing a lot of research. I understood that the unhealthy diet I had was contributing to my sickness. The food I was putting into my body was adding to my misery. I began to modify my diet drastically by removing processed foods, gluten, sugars, and artificial additives. Since I changed my diet by eating pure and nutritious meals, I did not require frequent trips to the hospital and was able to come off prescription steroids.

People live busy, hectic lives and may not always have time for a wholesome meal, so they consume whatever is available and quick. However, “quick food” is not always nutritious.

Just like the sun that provides us with clean energy, our food should also be a clean energy source. BodyBar Protein is a Gluten-Free, Paleo-Friendly protein bar blend with no additives, artificial sugar, not even “natural flavors.” BodyBar Protein is on a mission to create on the go food more nutritious.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
