Exo makes nutrient-dense real food bars, designed by a three-Michelin-starred chef. We combine minimally-processed cricket flour protein with ultra-premium ingredients for a bar without compromise. No gluten, grain, soy, dairy or refined sugars. Perfect as a meal-replacement, healthful snack, or pre/post exercise. Sustainable fuel for the explorers among us.

Cacao Nut -- Who doesn't love chocolate? This bar tastes just like that brownie you crave without any of the junk. Boasting an exceedingly simple ingredient list with nothing you can’t pronounce, Cacao Nut is the perfect primal snack. Try pairing it with your favorite coffee for the an afternoon pick-me-up.

PB&J -- An adult homage to the childhood classic. We combine peanut butter with whole strawberries and toasted gluten-free oats to nail that nostalgic flavor. One bite will bring you back (but this time it’s actually good for you).

Blueberry Vanilla -- We combine juicy blueberries with vanilla, almond butter and sea salt to deliver a not-too-sweet treat bursting with flavor and packed with protein. Equally suited to breakfast on the run or as energy for the trail.

Apple Cinnamon -- Fresh from the orchard, this recipe takes that time-tested combination of apples and almond butter to the next level--with a little cinnamon spice for good measure. A soft, chewy, dense package of essential energy and nutrients.

WHY INSECTS

Health
Insects are exceptionally nutritious. They are high in protein and low in saturated fats and sugars. They are a complete protein, containing all the essential amino acids, and are also high in micronutrients such as iron, calcium and B-vitamins. Crickets, for example, contain substantially more iron than beef.

Sustainability
Insects have marginal environmental impact. They produce virtually no methane, reproduce extremely quickly, and require minimal feed, water and space.It is estimated that crickets are 20x more efficient to raise for protein than cattle. Read More

 

 

 

 

About the company:

They arrived in two shoebox-sized containers. And they were very, very loud. We wanted to find out if we could make a food product using insects that actually tasted good. Armed with Google research, a vague recipe for cricket flour, an oven, and a blender, it was time to walk the walk...

Gabi had created a basic protein bar recipe while on his own quest to make a snack both healthy and delicious, prompted by his frustration at the nutrition-taste tradeoff marring everything commercially available. The idea to add insects came when Greg, one of Gabi’s five college roommates, attended a conference at MIT on the breakdown of global systems that sparked a conversation about insects’ tremendous environmental benefits relative to other food sources. He intuitively understood that only by combining insects with something more familiar—protein bars, for example—could people here be convinced to eat them. Read More
