About the company

Hi, my name is Jon and I’m the founder of Keto Bars and Keto Shakes.

I designed Keto Bars and Keto Shakes specifically for people that are on a low carb, Atkins, or ketogenic diet (which includes me). I was sick and tired of eating products that tasted like chemicals or claimed to be low carb…and just weren’t. I just couldn’t deal with all the sugar alcohols, unnatural, and fake ingredients.

Ultimately, I decided to take it upon myself to develop the type of bar and shake that I’d always wanted. Hundreds of recipes later, I finally started making something that I really liked…and so did everyone else that tried it!

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.

About Health Warrior

Health Warrior was founded in 2010 by college friends, Dan, Nick and Shane. The former collegiate athletes used to approach food as calories to burn during hours of daily practices. But after entering their professional lives, that carefree approach to nutrition met cold, hard, desk-bound reality. They went from running between meets and games to meetings and day care pick-ups. They eventually learned that what matters is the quality of calories over quantity. Read More

Supplement Spotlight: PowerBar® Highlights Simple Plant-Based Ingredients in New Plant Protein Product Line



New Bars Enter Plant Protein Category with Great Taste

EMERYVILLE, Calif., May 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PowerBar®, the original energy bar, is introducing its first plant-based snack bar as part of its Clean Start™, which is an ongoing effort to evolve their product portfolio with cleaner ingredient labels and great tasting products. Made with 10g – 11g of protein, PowerBar® Plant Protein Bars are a delicious, flavorful and great tasting option not typically seen in the plant protein category.

"In January, we launched our Clean Start™ campaign and officially committed to a clean start in 2017 by offering products in response to consumer needs for higher quality ingredients, long-lasting energy and improved, on-trend nutrition," says Doug Cornille, Premier Nutrition Corporation Vice President of Marketing. "Our new Plant Protein Bars reinforce our mission to diversify our product portfolio and offer better tasting products for all active sports players. In the past, the plant protein bar category has fallen short when it comes to great tasting products, and PowerBar® Plant Protein Bars remedy that situation. This is our most delicious tasting bar yet!"

These Plant Protein Bars arrive at a time when plant protein products are gaining popularity due to the rising trend of consumers looking for vegetarian options. PowerBar® Plant Protein Bars are made with a few simple ingredients – nuts, nut butters, pumpkin seeds, crisped peas and rice - and dipped and drizzled with dark chocolate. PowerBar® Plant Protein bars do not contain artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners and are Non-GMO Project Verified. The Non-GMO Project Verification Seal is an assurance that a product has been produced according to consensus-based best practices for GMO avoidance.

"When deciding to formulate our first ever plant-protein bar, taste was the number one priority," says Jeremy Hardwick, Product Development Manager of R&D at Premier Nutrition Corporation. "We used healthy fats from nuts and nut butters to enhance the flavor profile, and incorporated small amounts of natural sweeteners to taste. PowerBar Plant Protein Bars are ideal for consumers seeking non-soy or non-dairy protein snack options with great taste."

PowerBar Plant Protein Bars are perfect for the active consumer in need of an on-the-go wholesome protein snack to provide long-lasting energy and satiety. PowerBar Plant Protein Bars are available in Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Cashew flavors.

2017 Plant Protein Product Nutritionals:

  • Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt: 10g almond protein, 8g fiber; does not contain gluten, soy or dairy.
  • Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter: 11g peanut protein; 7g fiber; does not contain gluten, soy or dairy.
  • Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Cashew: 10g cashew protein, 7g fiber; does not contain gluten or soy. Contains dairy.

Food Spotlight: Canadian Cricket Protein Company Launches on Kickstarter


Canadian Start-up, Coast Protein, hits their $20,000 Kickstarter goal in less than 72 Hours.

VANCOUVER, March 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Coast Protein, Western Canada's first cricket protein company launched their crowdfunding campaign through Kickstarter and hit their goal in less than 72 hours. The company plans to scale production, improve packaging, and add cricket protein powders for smoothies to their product offering.

The Vancouver start-up currently sells small-batch cricket protein bars to various retailers across British Columbia. Available in two flavours: Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Raisin, Coast Protein locally produces around 1,000 cricket protein bars by hand every week. They are now ready to take their production to the next level and expand into the United States.

"We've found that crickets contain more calcium than milk and more iron than spinach, making them the ideal candidate for protein powder in shakes and smoothies. We've seen other healthy food trends like juicing, kombucha, and farm-to-table take off in North America and we believe that cricket protein is next," said Chris Baird, Marketing Director of Coast Protein.

Being that crickets are a complete protein, they provide a nutritional alternative to heavily processed proteins. Crickets have a full amino acid profile and are environmentally friendly. Compared to cows, crickets require 2,000 times less water, produce 100 times less methane gas, and use a fraction the land for the same pound of protein.

"The problem with insects isn't the science, nutrition, or taste – they just have an image problem, and we have the ability to change that," said John Larigakis, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Coast Protein.

Coast Protein's cricket protein bars and powders are now available in a variety of flavours on Kickstarter until March 31st, and at select retailers across British Columbia. They have partnered with a tree planting company in British Columbia to personally plant 10,000 trees this coming June. If they hit their stretch goal of $30,000 they will produce their 3rd flavour of protein bar: Cranberry Ginger.

About Coast Protein

Coast Protein is Western Canada's first cricket protein company. It was founded in 2015 to create sustainable protein bars and powders made with a highly nutritious and currently overlooked source of protein: crickets. Their mission is to make delicious insect-based products that become a normal everyday food source to help people live healthy, sustainable lifestyles.

Industry News: Betsy DeVos’s confirmation spikes sales of the Not My President Candy Bars


Not My President Candy donates a portion of all sales to: ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Naral, Sierra Club, ADL and DREDF

NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "We saw an immediate spike in sales of our "Not My President" Candy Bar moments after Betsy DeVos was confirmed for Education Secretary. Emails one after another started pouring in.  We received over 310 orders in less than one hour," said Andi Rykoff, a company spokesperson.

"Not My President" bars are 1.75-ounce milk-chocolate bars with a message on the wrapper: Trump is a "liar," "sexist," "racist" and "narcissist."  Bars retail for $3.50 each. Nationwide shipping within the U.S. is available from our website at www.notmypresidentcandy.com

"Of course she is unqualified. The most appalling moment was when Mrs. DeVos noted that a Wyoming school might need a gun to defend against grizzly bears. She has no qualifications. She has no relevant experience.  She has said that education reform was a way to 'advance God's kingdom.' Many of us have children in public schools. This is a very scary time for us," said co-founder Lisa Klein.

The charities that will benefit are American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, The Sierra Club, Anti-Defamation League, Disability Rights Education & Defense Fund and NARAL Pro-Choice America.
