Pro Bar [Review + Giveaway] closed/ US only

Did you know...

The prevalence of gluten in our food system has received a lot of attention recently. It’s estimated that celiac disease affects 1 out of every 133 people and generally speaking around 18 million Americans have some degree of gluten sensitivity. The culprit is the hard-to-digest protein called gluten, that even a healthy intestine can not completely break down. For those with celiac disease, the undigested gluten essentially causes the body’s immune system to lash out at itself, leading to malabsorption, bloating and diarrhea — the classic gastrointestinal symptoms — but also, at times, joint pain, skin rashes and other problems.

For these reasons, PROBAR is proud to announce that they are moving away from gluten as much as possible. PROBAR’s first certified gluten-free product is due to come out in March 2012: a fruit-dense, superfood snack bar (~150 calories). Fruition is designed to deliver 1 serving of fruit in every bar and is built from a 100% vegan, organic, non-GMO, gluten-free medley of dates, oats, chia seeds, and cashews.

Great Video to learn more about the Probar Fruition! 

I received a package of 14 bars (2 bars of each flavor) and was able to test them out last month. I tried all the flavors in the fruition line and my favorites were cherry, lemon and chocolate orange! Overall, I enjoyed these snacks and felt a difference in how I felt between meals when hunger pangs kicked in. I appreciate the variety of flavors because I know that there are flavors that almost everyone will enjoy. They were easy to throw into my diaper bag when I was out and about with the kiddos.
