What’s Inside Our MariGold Bars
Our bars contain ETHICALLY SOURCED, PREMIUM QUALITY Ingredients!
At MariGold Bars, we believe in keeping things real…just good stuff like we put into our own bodies. The result is a delicious gluten-free snack with none of the bad ingredients found in other bars!
You can feel good about eating any of our varieties of MariGold Bars because they are gluten free protein bars that we hand-craft and deliver fresh, without artificial ingredients, preservatives, excess sugar or chemicals.
Protein in a MariGold Bar
TRULY GRASS FED™
Whey Protein Isolate
No hormones. No antibiotics. No GMO.
Unlike whey concentrate, whey isolate is lactose AND casein free.
So, if you’re lactose intolerant, you can eat our bars and remain bloat free (yeah!). Also, if you’re gluten intolerant, you don’t have to worry about the cross-reaction that is caused by casein (since we don’t have casein!). It is cold processed so it protects the delicate amino-acid chains.
No soy, glycerin, or other less desirable forms of protein.
Using this extremely high quality whey isolate IS more expensive than using the cheap alternatives, but the health benefits are worth the additional cost and why we can proudly claim to be the “best protein bars” on the market.
Would you believe 4 eggs worth?
Sugar in a MariGold Bar
Each MariGold bar has from 1 to 4 grams of total sugar, and 20+ grams of protein which makes them perfect for anyone desiring to keep their blood sugar and insulin in check!
Our bars have just a small touch of all natural sweeteners that have been in use for 1000’s of years. We keep things real instead of relying on sugar alcohols such as erythritol (from GMO crops) and Sucralose as some other bars do.
This tiny bit of natural sweetener helps keep our bars fresh longer without the use of any kind of preservatives.
It’s equal to the sugar of 3 cherries!
And, they are all types of sweeteners that our bodies were designed to handle.
Chicory Root Fiber
Chicory root fiber is an excellent source of fiber.
Maple syrup is also known to contain minerals and antioxidants!
This nectar is certified to have a glycemic index of 31
Our stevia adds a sweet taste, with none of the bitter taste often found in other stevia products.
Allulose is considered a rare sugar, which is basically a sugar that can be found in nature in small quantities. It can be found naturally in fruits like raisins, figs, and jackfruit. Although it’s about 70% as sweet as the sugar you know and love (but try to stay away from), allulose tastes, feels and cooks just like regular sugar.
But, unlike regular sugar, the way it’s processed by the human body makes it an optimal choice for many people looking to live a healthier lifestyle.

It is pure 100% oil that contains no trans-fatty acids or cholesterol.

Phosphatidylcholine is the most abundant phospholipid in the body and is shown to be very prevalent in young and healthy cell membranes.
We specifically use Sunflower Lecithin because is a better form than lecithin derived from soy.
