About the company

Schmidt's started humbly in a Portland, Oregon, kitchen, when founder Jaime Schmidt was pregnant with her son. Jaime had always had a passion for natural body care products and studied their benefits, and she became motivated to make natural products for her family's health. Knowing that natural deodorant had a reputation for being ineffective, Jaime made it her mission to change the way people think about deodorant, refusing to compromise any effectiveness when formulating her deodorant. The investment in research and testing proved to be invaluable when Jaime knew she had developed a product that legitimately worked all day, felt great on the skin, and smelled incredible. After sharing the deodorant with others, they were amazed at their effectiveness, motivating Jaime to introduce Schmidt's Deodorant to local farmer's markets and businesses. Jaime did, and the response was overwhelming. Demand for the product surged as local markets and co-ops began to carry the deodorant and found themselves quickly selling out. Read More

Crowdfunding Spotlight: IQ Bar Launches Ready-to-Eat “Brain Food” to Beat the Afternoon Slump


Nutrition bars optimized for cognitive performance and productivity are now available

BOSTON, Nov. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Food startup IQ Bar is on a mission to fuel and fortify your brain with smarter snacks. Today, the company announces the launch of its Kickstarter campaign, where consumers can pre-order Almond Cacao, Blueberry Walnut, and Matcha Hazelnut flavors. All IQ Bars are optimized around 5 brain-boosting nutrients, contain just 8-9g of net carbs (total carbs – fiber), and are free of GMO's, grains, gluten, dairy, soy, and added sugar. They are compliant with low-carb, Paleo, ketogenic, Whole 30, kosher, and vegan diets.

Founder Will Nitze was inspired to start IQ Bar by a personal struggle with brain function. After studying psychology and neuroscience at Harvard, he suffered from brain fog and mental energy crashes daily. Eventually, he discovered his sugary, nutrient-poor diet was to blame, and reversed his symptoms through smarter eating. "By replacing carbohydrates with healthy fats and fortifying compounds, my brain function not only stabilized, but reached a new level," says Nitze. "My goal with IQ Bar is simple: help others achieve the same results I did."

IQ Bar's targeted impact extends beyond just short-term functionality; supporting long-term brain health is equally important to Nitze. Type 2 diabetes - a condition closely linked to brain disease – is up 4X since 1980, and more than 16 million Americans will have Alzheimer's by 2050. IQ Bar is excited to join the large and growing movement in nutritional and medical communities centered on overhauling the high-carb Western diet associated with these epidemics.

IQ Bar's endorsement of a diet high in healthy fats and fortifying compounds and low in carbohydrates aligns with – and was informed by – regimens recommended by brain nutrition experts like Dr. David Perlmutter (author of Grain Brain) and Dr. Mark Hyman (author of Eat Fat, Get Thin). Furthermore, the nutrients IQ Bars are optimized around were carefully selected for their links to positive brain outcomes in scientific literature.

Now over a year into his endeavor, Nitze and his team are thrilled to announce that snackers can join the IQ Bar mission by ordering bars and other "rewards" through the company's live Kickstarter campaign.

Postmates is donating 10 percent of its sales in Mexico City* from today through the end of the year to support the reconstruction of schools to improve the quality of life of Mexican children and teenagers. During the evening's launch event, Postmates will present Fundación Por México with an initial donation of U.S. $25,000.00.

The evening launch event will invite partners, Postmates teammates, community leaders and friends to celebrate -- with live music and some amazing food from Postmates partners like Hotel Carlota and Fonda Porteña.

*Postmates, though Fundación Por México, will dedicate 10% of its total sales in Mexico City from November 15-December 31, 2017 (up to $50,000 USD or 955,445 pesos).

Industry News: The No Cow Revolution Just Got Real As D’s Naturals Rebrands To No Cow And Expands Portfolio Of High Protein, Low Sugar, Dairy Free Products


Developed by then 18-year-old Entrepreneur, No Cow Gets Fresh New Look and Launches New Cookie Line and Additional Flavors of its Rapidly Growing Protein Bars

DENVER, Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- D's Naturals, creator of the innovative, low sugar, dairy free No Cow protein bars, announced today it has changed its name to No Cow. The name celebrates the company's successful and growing selection of products, all made with high quality ingredients, that are high protein, dairy free, and have just 1 gram of sugar. In conjunction with its new brand name, No Cow revealed a new high protein, low sugar, dairy free cookie that will be available in four delicious flavors, along with two new flavors of its signature protein bars.

D's Naturals was founded in 2015 by the then 18-year-old serial entrepreneur and fitness enthusiast Daniel Katz ("D") after realizing he had a dairy sensitivity. After failing to find a low sugar, plant-based protein bar on the market, D began developing the No Cow Bar. The No Cow Bar launched, and through its overwhelming success, became the symbol of D's ultimate goal to create low sugar, plant-based protein products with great taste and texture to help support consumers' active and healthy lifestyles.

Today, the brand officially becomes No Cow, celebrating its mission with the tagline, "No Cow. No Bull. No Whey!" Consumers will see products rolling out in stores nationwide beginning November 2017 with a cool new logo and updated packaging.

"I created the No Cow Bar from a personal need and it has since acted as the inspiration for our mission here at No Cow- to create high-protein, dairy free, and ridiculously low sugar products that people love," said Katz. "Now that I'm 21, we thought it was time for us to 'grow up' and ditch my name as the brand. By transitioning to No Cow, we're signaling our brand evolution, but are staying true to our mission of creating a true No Cow Revolution.  Our new No Cow Cookies are the next iteration of our brand promise and epitomize the type of cross-category brand we are quickly creating. We like to think of our amazing consumers as an extension of our team, and we are extremely pumped to share our sick new packaging and increased product offering with them and new No Cow fans everywhere!"

Today, No Cow is introducing:

  • No Cow Cookies, a new product line that is high protein, low sugar, dairy free and guilt free:
    • Four flavors of No Cow Cookies deliver at least 12 grams of plant-based protein per cookie with only 1 gram of sugar. Cookie flavors include Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate and Snickerdoodle.
  • No Cow Bars, in delicious new flavors:
    • The flagship bar delivers at least 20 grams of dairy free protein per bar with only 1 gram of sugar. New flavors hitting the market are Carrot Cake and Chunky Peanut Butter. They join current flavors of Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Mint Cacao Chip, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Raspberry Truffle, Blueberry Cobbler and Lemon Meringue Pie.

The new cookies and bar flavors join fan-favorite No Cow Fluffbutter, which is a protein infused almond or peanut butter spread and contains 1 gram of sugar and 10 grams of protein per serving.

"No Cow is no longer just a protein bar company; we are quickly becoming the trusted brand in all things dairy free, low sugar, and high protein," Katz continued. "We're not here to save the world, or make promises that we can't keep. At No Cow, we cut through the bull and say it how it is. We aim to make people's lives easier by providing products that were created out of a true personal need, knowing that there are others just like me. This fact is reinforced by the growth of our devoted No Cow fan-base. Each day marks a significant turning point for the company… we're one step closer to a No Cow Revolution."
