NatureBite Energy Bar
A clean, hypoallergenic and guilt-free energy bar, jam-packed with a unique blend of ingredients that support energy, muscle gain and fat loss – without excess carbohydrates, proteins, or unhealthy chemicals.
NatureBite Energy Bar
NatureBite is a tasty, appetite-satiating, nutrient-dense bar that will withstand the rigors of living a limitless, exciting life, reduce food cravings with just a few simple bites, give you a long-term, stable source of energy without causing blood sugar spikes, doesn’t contain a chemical cocktail or excess protein, won’t aggravate allergy and autoimmune issues, and delivers a big, tasty punch of mouth-watering, chocolatey-salty-coconut flavor.
NatureBite is a lowish-carb, high-fat, moderate-protein bar, rather than a high-fat, slightly greasy, low-energy “ketogenic” bar that can cause a gut bomb, especially during rigorous exercise, with zero dairy, zero soy, and zero whey protein isolate. It contains only hypoallergenic protein sources, is low in lectins and free of gluten, saponins and other notorious gut assailants, has plenty of minerals and electrolytes, adequate fiber (but no IMO’s!) and is a bar that supports recovery with sufficient levels of all essential amino acids and antioxidants, without excess protein to create an insulin spike or aging effect, and that contains just enough carbohydrate for liver and muscle glycogen restoration and appetite satiety, without necessarily spiking blood sugar.
NatureBite was created because, unfortunately, most energy bars are chock full of sugar and starch, which can cause dangerous blood sugar surges and fat formation. And if the sugar gets removed from a bar, it’s often replaced with nasty artificial sweeteners that can kill gut bacteria and cause neurotoxicity.
Or the bar is packed with so much excess protein that you get ammonia build-up, acidity, insulin spiking and gut issues like bloating, gas and constipation. From peanuts to soy to whey and beyond, the ingredients of many bars can cause food intolerance reactions, resulting in weight gain, skin, gut and immune system problems and a host of other health issues.
Finally, if a bar actually is healthy, it either tastes like cardboard, falls apart in the heat, is like biting into tree bark in the cold, and simply hasn’t been tested “in-the-trenches” by people living hard-charging lives or athletes competing under real conditions that exist outside of some whitewashed food laboratory.
NatureBite doesn’t freeze and turn into a rock-solid brick in frigid temperatures while snowboarding, skiing and hiking and doesn’t melt into a pile of seedy goo upon exposure to hot bike rides, runs and car glove compartments and just as importantly, it doesn’t taste like cardboard, has a good crunch and mouth feel and will keep you satisfied without a “dissolve in you mouth” type of here-and-gone taste.
Ultimately, NatureBite is a guilt-free bar that you can give to your family and your kids, eat before or during a workout, at your desk, on an airplane, or any other time you need clean-burning, stable energy. From healthy fat sources like coconut flakes and cocoa butter to completely hypoallergenic gelatin, kaniwa and pea protein, to a host of other unique ingredients that go above and beyond any other energy bar, NatureBite is guaranteed to give you all the nutrients, minerals, deliciousness and appetite satisfaction that you desire in a bar, with none of the harmful ingredients. Enjoy!

The organic honey used in this bar is extremely nutrient dense. Take the active starch-digesting enzyme amylase, for instance, found in honey in a form known as diastase, which is believed to contribute to clearing antigen-antibodies associated with allergies to pollens, while also reducing mast cell degranulation and inflammation associated with histamine exposure and allergic symptoms.
Honey is also rich in prebiotics and probiotics that contribute to supporting the healthy flora in your gut as well.
Another very cool thing about the organic honey in the bar is that it, along with the grass-fed collagen, serves as an all-natural binder. That means there is no need for that nasty IMO synthesized starch I mentioned earlier (remember, this is the stuff that spikes your blood sugar for hours on end, but that the FDA still allows to be added to so-called “low net carb” energy bars that go well beyond post-prandial effect) and also no need for any additional artificial fillers or binders.
Unlike the almonds from other larger producer countries, the varieties grown in Spain mostly have a hard shell, with a smaller nut than the soft-shelled varieties and a higher oleic acid content, making them perfect for nervous system and cell membrane support. Spanish almonds are of outstanding quality and high antioxidant content because of their high amount of fatty acids, which makes them moister and more flavorsome. Referred to as “The Queen Of Almonds”, they are shorter, rounder, softer, and sweeter than the California variety.
Cacao nibs are packed full of fiber (a single ounce of cacao nibs has a whopping 9g of fiber to keep your digestive system running smoothly), contain tons of antioxidants, boatloads of magnesium (a single ounce of cacao nibs also has sixty-four milligrams of magnesium in it), potassium (more per ounce than bananas), are chock-full of iron (especially great news for vegans and vegetarians) and are a wonderful mood enhancer (cacao works wonders on your neurotransmitters).
Baby Quinoa (Kaniwa)
A close cousin of quinoa that is often referred to as baby quinoa. Kaniwa is a high-density, plant-based protein with a higher amount of protein than quinoa but, like quinoa, is a “perfect” protein in that it contains all nine essential amino acids that your body cannot produce on it’s own. It is also a good source of flavonoids, which means it doesn’t need extra preservatives added to keep it stable.
Like quinoa, kaniwa also hails from South America. Cultivated in Peru and Bolivia, kaniwa is the seed from a flowering plant called goosefoot (Chenopodium pallidicaule). Quinoa is from the same genus (Chenopodium) but is a different species (quinoa) with slightly different properties. Quinoa consists of small seed grains that may be red, dark brown, or white in appearance. Kaniwa are smaller than quinoa seeds (about half the size) and are dark red or brownish in color. Both quinoa and kaniwa have a delicious nutty flavor, although kaniwa is slightly sweeter than quinoa. Additionally, kaniwa has a slightly crunchy texture, while quinoa is fluffy and soft – making kaniwa a perfect ingredient for an energy bar to give it added mouth-feel and “crunch”.
Kaniwa is particularly high in lysine, an amino acid that is typically found only in small amounts in grain products. It also contains an enormous variety of vitamins and minerals, including iron, B vitamins, vitamin E, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, and manganese.
White Chia Seeds
These seeds, harvest from the Salvia hispanica plant, pack such a nutritional punch that most nutritionists have for decades called chia a superfood. With protein content of up to 25% and dietary fiber reaching 30%, chia also contains significant amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The chia seed is extremely nutrient dense and packs a ton of energy boosting power. As a matter of fact, Aztec warriors ate chia seeds to give them energy and endurance, and claimed that a single spoonful of chia could sustain them for 24 hours (chia actually means “strength” in the Mayan language, and they were known as “runners food” because runners and warriors would use them as fuel while running long distances or during battle).
Chia seeds also promote healthy skin, reduce signs of aging, support the heart and digestive system, build stronger bones and muscles and more. Recently, they have even been linked to management of diabetic symptoms, and when soaked in the juices of the digestive system, can coat the lining of the stomach and serve as a gut-nourishing compound, especially during physical activity.
Extremely nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals. Once thought of as unhealthy because of being a “high saturated fat” food, we now know that the fat in coconut flakes is different from most other fats. Not only is it an extremely stable saturated fat that will not turn rancid at high heat like vegetable oils – a much more common ingredient in most energy bars – but it is also an extremely rich source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are burned easily as a slow-release form of fuel and do not circulate in the bloodstream like other fats (instead, they are sent straight to the liver and converted into energy and ketones).
Low-processed chocolate that is equal part cocoa butter and cocoa solids (commonly thought of as cooking chocolate and far lower in sugar than other commercial forms of chocolate).
Pea Protein Isolate
Not only is the plant-based pea protein (unlike peas or legumes themselves) very low in gut-irritating lectins, but it’s also a complete protein that is allergen-free, unlike whey and soy, and also vegan and vegetarian friendly. Pea protein supplies a unique array of amino acids such as high amounts of lysine (which plays an important role in the formation and absorption of collagen) and arginine, branched chain amino acids, enzymes that help your body function normally and a host of vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
When combined with the tasty and nutrient dense white chia seeds you’re about to discover, grass-fed collagen, organic kaniwa and pea protein turn out to be a mighty flavorful and protein-packed threesome that allow you to get a perfect amount of protein into an energy bar with zero allergens, minimal preservatives, and amazing mouth-feel and flavor.
Sesame seeds add a nutty taste and a delicate, almost invisible, crunch to the texture of a bar. They also offer an excellent source of copper and a very good source of manganese, and are also a source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, molybdenum, selenium, and dietary fiber.
In addition to these important nutrients, sesame seeds contain two unique substances: sesamin and sesamolin. Both of these substances belong to a group of special beneficial fibers called lignans, and have been shown to have a cholesterol-lowering effect in humans, and to prevent high blood pressure and increase vitamin E supplies. Sesamin has also been found to protect the liver from oxidative damage.
Sea salt is of course a classic preservative that humans have used for thousands of years to preserve food, almonds are dense with tocopherols and vitamin E (a natural preservative due to its antioxidant effects), chia seeds overwhelming antioxidant stores allow them to hold up extremely well (two to three years at least) and bone, muscle and gut nourishing collagen peptides are stable over a two year period.
List of ingredients: Organic honey, almonds, cocoa nibs, hydrolyzed gelatin, baby quinoa (kaniwa), white chia seeds, coconut flakes (coconut, sodium metabisulfite), chocolate liquor (roasted and ground cocoa beans), water, organic rice protein, pea protein isolate, sesame seeds, cocoa powder, cocoa butter, sea salt, tocopherols.
