A bounty of whole, natural ingredients is at the heart of every Truth Bar. Each ingredient is chosen because it packs a powerful nutritional punch. Blended in a unique recipe, each bar is made with love for a rich, luxurious taste you will enjoy every day without any artificial ingredients or fillers that you might find in some other snacks or bars.
Every rich, dark, chocolate covered Truth Bar was scientifically formulated to balance your microbiome, boost your immune power, give you sustained energy, and soothe tummy troubles on a daily basis.
To optimize your health you should optimize your gut health. So, in addition to powerful superfoods, Truth Bars deliver both probiotics and the prebiotics that sustain their growth.
It's hard to achieve balanced nutrition in the midst of a busy life. When it comes to getting vital nutrients for gut health, probiotics are in some hard-to-get places like sauerkraut, kimchi, miso soup and yogurt. Then, to make it even more challenging, prebiotics are in entirely different foods, like asparagus, Jerusalem artichokes, and onions.
That’s why we put prebiotics and probiotics in every Truth Bar for the quickest, most convenient and easiest way to get you what your body needs.
A daily Truth Bar makes a healthy gut much easier—and achieving it more delicious—than preparing and combining all those foods in your kitchen.
Meet the ingredients that Truth Bars are made of.
The tiny chia seed is said to be this century's miracle food discovery. They are packed with powerful soluble and insoluble fiber and loaded with a full day's supply of Omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, magnesium and other key micronutrients. This makes chia seeds one of the few “complete” plant-based proteins. Chia seeds provide numerous lasting health benefits for your gut, your brain and your immune system. Chia seeds are a key ingredient in all Truth Bar flavors.
Think of coconut oil as a quick dose of very clean energy for your body’s most important functions. That’s because it consists of a unique combination of essential medium-chain fatty acids that are very easy for your body to digest and utilize almost immediately for hydration, balancing, and nourishment. Coconut oil is linked to fat loss, improved brain function and balancing the gut's microbiome and is included in all Truth Bar flavors.
Dark chocolate is packed with essential minerals and anti-aging antioxidants. Our specially formulated dark chocolate coating drenches all our bars and is completely soy-free and sugar-free. Our rich, exquisite chocolate is made from whole cacao beans that contain the obromine, a naturally occurring alkaloid that's known to stimulate and promote good mood and sharp cognition.
Almonds have fewer calories and more protein than other nuts, because they are loaded with essential fatty acids. These healthy fats support your digestive system while increasing both your energy level and ability to shed unhealthy fat. In addition, almond butter boasts very good levels of Vitamin E, magnesium and iron. Almond Butter is a key ingredient in our Chocolate Almond Crunch (obviously) and Mint Chocolate Chip bars.
Energizing and joy inducing, this is crunchy chocolate in its natural state of perfection. Cacao nibs overflow with micronutrients including flavonoids, antioxidants, fiber, magnesium and potassium. You can find these fun to eat bursts of crunch in our Chocolate Almond Crunch and Mint Chocolate Chip bars.
Chicory root fiber (inulin) is a powerful prebiotic that has tremendous medicinal qualities. With a ZERO on the glycemic scale, it adds sweetness and is safe for diabetics. Chicory is a known anti-inflammatory that also prevents constipation and other gut related ailments. This superfood is included in all Truth Bars.
The trace minerals in sea salt help produce proper amounts of HCL (hydrochloric acid) "stomach acid" which is the foundation for food assimilation and proper digestion. HCL helps your body to absorb vitamins and minerals like calcium, zinc, iron, folate and B12. Sea salt is in the recipe of all Truth Bars.
We blended these two proteins together for a fiber and protein blend that provides all the BCAA's (branched-chain amino acids) for muscle development as well as a complete protein for meal replacement. This dairy-derived protein combination is contained in our non-vegan bars, Chocolate Almond Crunch and Mint Chocolate Chip.
In extensive research and clinical studies, this strain of probiotics has proven to be a powerful bacteria, beneficial to treating and preventing diarrhea, IBS, gastritis, bloating, and stomach pain. It is also one of the few strains that is heat stable and shelf stable, which means it does not require refrigeration to retain its potency. B. coagulans is included in all Truth Bars.

Questions About Prebiotics and Probiotics:
What is a probiotic?
Probiotics are good bacteria in your digestive system that help to keep your gut healthy and that make a beneficial contribution to your overall health.
What is a prebiotic?
Prebiotics are indigestible fibers that come mainly from certain plant foods that feed the good bacteria in your gut.
Why is it important to have both prebiotics and probiotics together?
Prebiotics feed the probiotics to help them thrive and work longer in your body. When combining a nurturing base of prebiotics in the belly, with a good dose of probiotics, a garden of flora blossoms and fills the gut with a balanced, healthy microbiome.
How much probiotic is in each Truth Bar?
1 Billion CFU's.
What is the strain of probiotic used in Truth Bars?
Lactobacillus sporogenes (bacillus coagulans). It is a stable Lactic Acid forming probiotic that has extensive studies of gut healing effects ranging across gastrointestinal issues, bloating, diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome. This spore-producing bacteria remains dormant in the package and on grocery store shelves, but becomes activated once eaten. This hardy bacteria strain has a protective shell that helps it survive the acid and bile in your stomach so that it can reach your intestines unharmed. Once there, the low ph and moisture in your intestines allows it to activate and multiply rapidly. This is especially true when it has prebiotics there to feed it.

Truth Bars & Popular Diets:
Are Truth Bars Keto Friendly?
Keto diets are very low in carbs, high in fat, ideally higher in fiber, and have some balanced amount of protein. The strictest Keto diets require very low to almost no carbs. Truth Bars would not be ideal for the strictest keto diet. But if you are looking for a snack option for a basic or moderate keto diet, Truth Bar's Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch bar is a great choice -- high in fiber (13g), high in healthy fat (12g), moderate protein (10g) and relatively lower net carbs (6g).
How many Weight Watchers points does a Truth Bar have?
Truth Bars have approximately 8-9 points per bar.
Are Truth Bars Paleo Friendly?
Paleo diets in their strictest form include foods that hunter-gatherers would have eaten. This means no foods that were not available to them (like sugar, processed foods, artificial ingredients) and lots of fruits, grains and lean protein. Paleo diets also restrict grains, legumes and dairy. Truth Bars, while gluten-free and only containing real food ingredients, would not fit in the Paleo diet in its strictest form as they contain some sugar (4-5g).
What is the shelf life of Truth Bars?
Truth Bars have a shelf life of 12 months from the date of production. We make our bars in small batches, which should ensure that our retailer's shelves are stocked with fresh bars when rotated correctly.
Do Truth Bars need to be refrigerated?
No. This type of probiotic is not in a live state on the shelf, it is activated only after it's eaten. For this reason, Truth Bars do not need to be refrigerated.
