Ingredients With A Purpose

At the heart of Truth Bars is a bounty of whole, natural ingredients -- each chosen to pack 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.

Goodness on the Go

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.

Chia Seeds

Chia Seeds

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.


Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil

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

Dark Chocolate

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. 


Almond Butter 

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.


Cacao Nibs 

Cacao Nibs

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

Chicory Root

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.

Sea Salt

Sea Salt

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.


Brown Rice Protein and Whey Isolate

Brown Rice

We blended these two proteins together for a fiber and protein blend that provides all the BCAA's (brained-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.


Bacillus Coagulans

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions about PREBIOTICS and PROBIOTICS:

What is a Prebiotic?

Prebiotics come from plants, usually root plants that contain a lot of fiber and feed the good bacteria in your gut.

Why is it important to have both prebiotics and probitotics?

Probiotics alone cannot grow without a healthy gut to support them. 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 microbiome.

Can your body make its own Conjugated Lineolic Acid?

You certainly have the gut flora to make your very own CLA. It’s one of the many things your lactobacilli and bifidobacteria do for you.

It’s important to have healthy gut flora to be able to make CLA. People with gut dysbiosis have a significantly harder job of it – possibly one reason why obesity and gut dysfunction tend to go hand-in-hand. So if you’ve been eating well for a while and your gut is humming along nicely, you can probably count on a substantial CLA intake from gut flora. If you’re eating is not so “healthy” or you simply aren’t producing enough good bacteria, Truth Bar can help by giving probiotic support to build up your colonies of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria.
