FAQs – Super Bar

Here at BōKU®, we firmly believe in the power of whole, healing foods. When it comes to organic food versus non-organic, the choice is easy for us. For something to be Certified Organic, it has to meet certain criteria that we believe all food should be upheld to.

To be certified organic the food must…

– Contain NO GMO’s! What’s a GMO you ask? It stands for Genetically Modified Organism. We could really go on all day about why we do not want them in our products, and especially do not want to feed them to our wonderful customers. To learn more about GMO’s, see our FAQ “What is a GMO?”

– Be grown and harvested in a safe and sustainable manner, with NO artificial fertilizers, NO artificial pesticides and NO irradiation!

– Contain NO artificial flavors, colors or preservatives!

Why else should you choose organic?

– Organic agriculture preserves natural resources and biodiversity.

– It supports animal health and welfare (for meat products, certified organic means they have not be subjected to growth hormones or harmful antibiotics).

– Organic foods have been shown to have better nutritional value than conventionally grown food.

The Super Bar does contain complete protein derived from incredibly pure sprouted brown rice protein. Our brown rice protein found in the bar contains all of the amino acids, making it a complete protein.
The BōKU® Bar’s have not been officially tested for the glycemic index. Anytime you mix a fat, fiber and/or protein with a sweetener (or any carb), it significantly lowers the glycemic index of the whole mixture. The BōKU® Bar is rich in healthy fat from organic almond butter, fiber and protein. This would help to support a nice slow absorption of carbs into the body.
We know that there is a lot of talk on the Internet about many agave products being adulterated with high fructose corn syrup. The BōKU® Bar actually contains Organic RAW Premium Blue Agave Nectar. BōKU® International pays much more to get the “real deal.” Our organic agave is specially prepared at low temperatures to maintain its nutrient content and boost its status as a Latin American Super Food. Organic Agave Nectar is the liquid RAW VEGAN sweetener of choice for pristine products, such as organic coconut milk ice cream, organic artisan raw chocolates, etc.

There has also been talk of agave being higher in fructose than other sweeteners. This is true. Similarly, there is a significant amount of fructose in organic honey and cane sugar, as well as dried fruit. Sucrose is made up of half glucose and half fructose. Most people eat too much sugar and are therefore getting large doses of fructose as well. BōKU® doesn’t recommend people eating large amounts of concentrated sweeteners on a regular basis and the bar is well balanced. The BõKU® Bar was purposely formulated to be sweet, but not overly so, like many other bars in the market. The BōKU® Bar is a super nutritious addition to a diet ideally high in organic fruits and vegetables.

The BōKU® Bar™ was created to be stored at room temperature. Some people like the temperature and texture of a refrigerated or frozen bar. Experiment on your own and let us know which way you like them best!
BōKU® Bars™ have a 1 year “best by” date. All bars will become firm over a short period of time. This is normal. If you eat your BōKU® Bars™ within a couple of months of receiving them, you will have the optimal BōKU® Bar™ experience.
That’s great! When Organic Almond Butter is warm, a little bit of fresh oil will rise to the top of the bar. This means the bar is pure with no artificial emulsifiers. If you store the bar in a cool place, the organic almond oil will reabsorb into the bar.
Right now, solar energy is a part of the production process. By the beginning of January, we plan to be 100% solar powered!!!!
Lunch is ideal when it contains a full complement of fresh fruit and vegetables. We all experience times when we just need to “grab something” on the run and keep going. Since BōKU® Bars™ are large, nutrient dense bars they are the perfect replacement for when you can’t sit down for a nutritious meal. The 15 grams of organic protein and 11 grams of organic fiber deeply satisfy and help maintain a steady stream of energy throughout the afternoon.
The ultimate difference is that the BōKU®® Bar™ was your idea! Mike Adams the Health Ranger (www.naturalnews.com) asked health savvy people all over the world what they wanted in their “perfect” nutrition/protein bar. More than 1,500 of you responded with detailed “wish lists.” BōKU® Master Formulator, Dr. BJ Adrezin, “synergized” all of these desires to create what is now the BōKU® Bar™.
The BōKU® Bar™ is a perfect nutritious treat for kids! Since it is a very large bar, you can divide one BōKU® Bar™ into 2-3 bars for a readymade delicious snack for the children. The BōKU® Bar™ is not as sweet as “candy bars,” so the children can enjoy themselves without becoming “sugared out.”
BōKU® Bars™ have a rich chocolaty fudge brownie taste. The chocolate comes exclusively from Organic Fair Trade Certified Cocoa. It is a dense, rich bar, yet still moist and chewy.

The BōKU® Bar™ is filled with the finest Organic certified, super foods from around the world. This was a true labor of love. No expense was spared in preparing and offering the BōKU® Bar™. It is Organic/Vegan/Kosher Certified. The BōKU® Bar™ is also Gluten-free, Wheat-free, Dairy-free, Soy-free, Low Sodium, and Non-GMO.

We currently have a single flavor of BōKU® Bar™. Not only does it taste and feel like a fudge brownie but it also contains little bits of tantalizing organic strawberries throughout the bar.
Many foods and natural substances that have potent nutritional properties taste horrible. Even though BōKU® Bars™ are delicious, they are also super nutritious! With 15 grams of organic vegan protein and 11 grams of gentle fiber, BōKU®Bars™ really stand out. BōKU® Bars™ also contain our award winning BōKU® Super Food™, with over 40 organic, vegan, and kosher super food ingredients.
We gently blend all of our ingredients into a base of rich creamy Organic Almond Butter.  BōKU® Bars™ are slowly formed while maintaining the integrity of the vital nutrients within. Many “nutrition bars” on the market are baked (even when they don’t tell you). BōKU® Bars™ are always cold processed, thereby making them the most nutritious and fresh bars available.
