What’s Inside Our MariGold Bars

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.

A Gourmet Taste that’s Extremely Healthy!

Protein in a MariGold Bar

MariGold Bars protein bars are made with
TRULY GRASS FED™
Whey Protein Isolate
Made with Truly Grass Fed Protein Whey Isolate
Truly Grass Fed™ Cows are 95% Grass Fed and spend most of the year outdoors, in the fresh air, grazing (250 Days a Year*). Truly Grass Fed™ protein is Environmentally Responsible, RBST-Free (No Synthetic Hormones) and is Animal-welfare Friendly.
Premium quality whey isolate that comes from grass-fed cows.

No hormones. No antibiotics. No GMO.

20g Whey Isolate and No Inferior Whey Concentrate.

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.

So… how much protein is in a MariGold Bar?

Would you believe 4 eggs worth?

That’s right, each MariGold Bar has as much protein as 4 large eggs!

Sugar in a MariGold Bar

Are they full of sugar?…NO, not at all!

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.

So, how much is “just a touch”?

It’s equal to the sugar of 3 cherries!

And, they are all types of sweeteners that our bodies were designed to handle.

Non-GMO
Chicory Root Fiber
We use Chicory Root Fiber that has been water extracted from plants grown by local farmers in The Netherlands. This pre-biotic, soluble dietary fiber has a slightly sweet taste, with a glycemic index of 20.

Chicory root fiber is an excellent source of fiber.

Organic
Maple Sugar
Maple Sugar is delicious and is a healthy alternative sweetener made entirely from pure maple syrup.

Maple syrup is also known to contain minerals and antioxidants!

Organic
Coconut Nectar
We use non-GMO coconut nectar. This nectar, which comes from the flowers of coconut palm trees is minimally processed and nutrient dense.

This nectar is certified to have a glycemic index of 31

Organic
Stevia
We use certified organic stevia, the highest quality stevia available. This is pure stevia, naturally extracted with no additives such as malto-dextrin or erythritol.

Our stevia adds a sweet taste, with none of the bitter taste often found in other stevia products.

Allulose Sweetener

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.

Organic, Fairly Traded Coconut Oil

We use Cold Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil, extracted from Organic certified fresh coconuts, without the use of excessive heat or harsh conditions during processing. No chemicals or bleach are used.

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

Organic, Grass-Fed Ghee Clarified Butter

Right now, you’re probably thinking: “Butter! Did I just read that you actually use real butter in some of these bars?”

Yes, that is absolutely right! To get that rich, buttery taste, we use ORGANIC GHEE from GRASS-FED Cows.

Ghee is also known as clarified butter. It has been used used in Ayurvedic medicine for 1000’s of years and is considered a super-food. Ghee is:

Lactose free
Casein free
High in CLA
Incredibly Tasty!

Sunflower Lecithin

Sunflower Lecithin

Our MariGold Proteins Bars now include Sunflower Lecithin. Lecithin is an excellent source of Phosphatidylcholine, which has been shown to be good for brain health.

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.
