Our Dang Story

What's better than getting 'Mom' tattooed on your arm? Naming your company after her!

Seven years ago, I told my mother my plans to start a pop-up restaurant and she gave me her hand-written recipe for Thai lettuce wraps that included toasted coconut. I was so taken by the aroma and flavor of toasted coconut that I launched a company to sell it as a snack and named it after her.

I was doing the Keto diet and couldn’t find any tasty, on-the-go snacks…so I made it myself! Dang Bar is 100% plant-based and made without added sugar.

We use whole food ingredients like coconut, almond butter, cocoa butter, and chia seed. I’m a foodie at heart and can honestly say it tastes incredible enough that I’m happy putting the name “Dang” on it!

Here at Dang, we are food explorers. Since the start, we make snack creations inspired by adventure and simple ingredients.

Take them with you when you travel the world, your neighborhood or even just from one side of the couch to the other.

From our family to yours,

Vincent Kitirattragarn, Founder & CEO

What is Dang Bar?

Answer: Dang Bar is The 100% Plant Based Keto Bar. Ranging from 4-5g Net Carbs, 14-15g Fat, and 9-10g Protein, each Dang Bar is made with the optimal ratio of macro nutrients designed to keep you in nutritional ketosis - high fat, moderate protein, low carb! Available in Almond Vanilla, Lemon Matcha, and Chocolate Sea Salt

What is Keto, Ketosis, Ketogenic?

Answer: Generally, A ketogenic diet is a high fat, moderate protein, low carb diet. Keto refers to a ketogenic diet or the metabolic state of ketosis. On a typical carbohydrate diet (including sugar, breads, grains, fruit, etc.) the body burns glucose for energy. But when the body is depleted of carbohydrates it is forced to turn to fats for energy. Ketosis is the metabolic process in which the body uses fat stores as it’s primary source of energy (as opposed to glucose). When the body does not have enough sugar from carbohydrates to use as energy, the liver uses fat to create ketones which are used as fuel. The primary function of a ketogenic diet is to achieve and stay in ketosis. Generally, 70% of calories come from fat, 20% from protein, and 10% from carbs. Most people eat between 0-50g of net carbs per day to stay in ketosis. If you are embarking on a keto diet for the first time, we recommend you consult with your medical practitioner prior to making any dramatic changes to your current diet.

Is Dang Bar Keto?

Answer: Yes! Dang Bar is Keto Certified and is suitable for anyone following a ketogenic diet. The low net carb count and high fat make it the perfect snack to help stay within your carb limit and hit your fat needs. Dang Bar is made from a combination of almond butter, cocoa butter, coconut, complete pea protein, sunflower seeds and chia. It contains an ideal ratio of macronutrients for a high fat, moderate protein, low carb keto diet: 70% fat, 20% protein, and 10% net carbs.

Can I eat Dang Bar even if I am not Keto?

Answer: Dang Bar is for everyone. While great for a ketogenic lifestyle, it’s also perfect for anyone looking for snacks that are low carb, plant based, or vegan friendly. Dang Bar is designed for anyone looking for a filling, satiating snack that brings sustained energy and doesn't spike your blood sugar like other honey/maple/brown rice syrup laden bars. If you’re looking for foods made with real, clean wholesome ingredients with no added sugar, Dang Bar is for you.

Is Dang Bar vegetarian or vegan?

Answer: Yes, Dang Bar is 100% plant based and free from all animal products. It is both vegetarian and vegan.

Is Dang Bar Organic?

Answer: Dang Bar is made with real, natural ingredients and uses organic ingredients whenever possible, but is is not certified organic.

Is Dang Bar a meal replacement?

Answer: Everyone’s diets are different and their definitions of meals can vary. Dang Bar contains 190 calories and 15-6g of Fat. Typically on ketogenic diets containing foods higher in fat, you can expect to experience less hunger and feel fuller faster. Dang Bar is a great grab and go breakfast, mid-morning snack, pre or post workout fuel, desk snack, or after dinner treat.

How do I store Dang Bar? Does it need to be refreigerated?

Answer: Dang Bar should be stored in a room temperature, dry environment away from direct heat or sunlight. With that said, it is made with real ingredients and can become soft or release oils in warmer temperatures. They’re still safe to eat but can be put in the refrigerator to regain the proper texture and consistency.

Where can I buy Dang Bar in stores?

Answer: Dang Bar is currently available for subscription orders on dangfoods.com. Starting in October 2018 it will be available for purchase on Amazon. You can expect to see it hit the shelves at Whole Foods starting early 2019.

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.
