VEGA Bars are now available. Created by professional Ironman triathlete and vegan, Brendan Brazier, following the success of his meal replacement powder, VEGA. Unlike other protein and energy bars on the market, VEGA bars use all raw and alkaline protein sources and ingredients. No junk, oils, refined sugars, gluten, soy, dairy, GMO’s or pesticides.
These nutritious bars are loaded with rich and active anti-oxidants, phytonutrients, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, protein, electrolytes, fiber and Omega 3 and 6 EFA’s. They sound like they would make a perfect light snack to fuel a workout or training session, or just to refuel in between meals at work. Berry is the most popular flavor, but they also come in natural and chocolate. These seem a lot like the Organic Food Bars I used to eat all the time, except using hemp raw complete protein instead of rice and with some great iodine. I can’t wait to try them.
