Truth Bar was founded on the belief that, in order to optimize our health and wellness, we need to embrace the whole truth of what our bodies need -- that the core of optimal health is a healthy gut.  

When we listen to our gut and give our bodies the whole foods and the right mix of vital nutrients that they crave, we can thrive like never before.

That’s why co-founders Sean Fay and Diana Stobo created Truth Bar—to make it simple to get the rich fiber, healthy oils, good carbs and the prebiotics and probiotics that we need for optimal gut health. 

The Journey

In addition to being a fitness enthusiast and an avid athlete, Sean had been a force behind several of the most successful innovations in the food and nutrition industry -- products that touched literally millions of lives.  Sean had seen first hand that taking small, smart steps could transform your health and your life.  

Diana’s moment of truth came the day she found herself in an emergency room with a long history of medical diagnoses and an even longer list of prescription pills.  Through her own research into nutrition, she found the path to lose 100 lbs. and to heal her thyroid and autoimmune conditions.  She went on make health and nutrition her vocation.  As a recognized health expert, raw food chef, and spa hotel owner, she has worked with over a thousand clients to help them improve their health through better nutrition.

A Bar Like No Other

With their passion for personal transformation and an understanding of the healing power of food, Sean and Diana created Truth Bars using high-quality, purposeful ingredients, fortified with prebiotics and probiotics that could help people build their health the only way they knew was sustainable: from the inside out.

As a French-trained baker and chocolatier, Diana worked to make recipes that tasted like candy bars yet met strict nutritional and confectionary guidelines.

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 probiotics?

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.
