NUTRITION & INGREDIENTS

Amrita Protein Bars contain approximately 230 calories, 8g fat, 30g carbohydrates, and 15g protein. That breaks down to about 50% carbohydrates, 25% protein, and 25% fat. The bars also contains 4g of fiber and 1000mg omega-3 fatty acids. Additionally, they are a good plant-based source of iron and calcium. The bars are raw, kosher and made without genetically modified (GMO) ingredients..

We use brown rice protein – plant-based protein with a complete amino acid profile that is high in glutamine, arginine, lysine, leucine, and branched-chain amino acids.

Yes we don't use nuts. But our bars are processed in a facility that makes other products with nuts. To be on the safe side, we do not recommend eating Amrita bars if you have a life threatening allergy. 

The only grains used in Amrita bars are in the form of sprouted brown rice protein. Unlike other bars, we do not fill our bars with oats and rice cereal.

We don't add any artificial vitamins, minerals or sweeteners. Because our bars are raw, highly alkaline, and plant-based, they already contain high levels of naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and nutrients –– and taste great! We do not add any artificial sweeteners since the side effects from artificial sweeteners are well documented.

Yes the pouch has a  total of 24g of protein .. it has 6 minis .. each have 4 grams. The bars have 15g of protein except for the Superfood bar that’s 7 grams of protein. 

Our bars are made with dates that are naturally high in sugar, fiber and nutrients. We do not add high processed sugars or sugar alcohols. 

Because the bars have no preservatives, the shelf life of an Amrita bar is one year. To extend shelf life and for best freshness, store bars in a cool place.

HOW LONG CAN A BAR BE LEFT IN A FRIDGE IF OPENED, A WEEK OR JUST A FEW DAYS?

A month or more, it's like dried fruits. Keep it air tight and it’s fine

WHAT ABOUT SUMMER HEAT, SHOULD I BE CONCERNED ABOUT SHIPPING & HEAT EXPOSURE FOR THE CHOCOLATE PROTEIN BARS?

Our bars are not coated with chocolate nothing melts but we don't recommend it in heat for too long. There should be no issues during transit because we ship it via USPS or UPS in a contained facility. However, should there be changes in texture and taste, please let us know so we can do something about it.

TASTES LIKE REAL FOOD

Seriously you do not need to eat bars that taste like sawdust or cardboard to get your proteins in - have some respect for your nutrition!  Our amazing bars are filled with plant-based ingredients such as dates, chia seeds, maca and cacao, which are great for athletes. In addition to the nutrition, dates give the bar a wonderfully moist, and soft texture, versus the dry, chalky mouthfeel from oats or whey bars.

AIDS MUSCLE AND JOINT CRAMPING AND SUPPORTS HEALTHY BONES

Dates are high in potassium which helps athletes limit their muscle and joint cramping. There is also an abundance of magnesium in dates, so it helps an athlete’s bone health and energy metabolism. Dates are also high in manganese, a mineral which regulates blood sugar, supports the health of the nervous system, and also aids in absorption of calcium. The bars are fortified with sprouted rice proteins which are loaded with tons of amino acids.

EASY ON THE GI TRACT

There are high amounts of natural soluble and insoluble fiber in the bars which allow our product to be easily digestible without causing discomfort. Some athletes run into GI problems from other bars because of the added soluble fiber such as isomalto-oligosaccharides that are not found naturally through plant-based ingredients. Brown rice protein does not cause bloating (unlike whey protein), which is crucial for our athletes.

SUSTAINED ENERGY LEVELS

Athletes can also obtain healthy fats from our bars through the coconut and chia seeds. These healthy fats are crucial and are able to provide the necessary fuel for high energy endurance activities. Each bar contains different ingredients to make them unique but the common ingredients like brown rice protein and dates can be found in all, providing the energy and fuel to all athletes, no matter the age.

FREE FROM THE TOP 8 ALLERGENS

This means no peanuts, no tree nuts, no dairy, no eggs, no soy, and no gluten! This makes our bar very versatile, clean, and school safe in addition to the amazing taste and texture.

LOW GLYCEMIC LOAD

This helps curb hunger because of the high carbohydrates and good fats. Great for when they come home from school, or off to practice, the bars will sustain the kids without a quick spike in blood sugar which can happen from added sugars in other snack bars.

All Amrita bars are made in small batches in NY without chemicals, preservatives, synthetics, or pollutants.
