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
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, hydrolyzed collagen, glycerin, or other less desirable forms of protein.
Using this extremely high quality whey 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 3.5 to 5 grams of total sugar (only 1.5 gm of fructose), 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.
Raw, Organic Agave
The agave we use is never heated above 118 degrees which qualifies it as a raw food. Raw agave we use has approximately 1 1/2 grams of fructose per bar and is a REAL food (not a chemical like erythritol or Sucralose).
It is certified to have a glycemic index of 30 (a very good thing).
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, Dried Dates
Dates are another sweetener that does much more than just sweeten! Dates are a rich source of iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium and fiber.
No additives. No preservatives. No sugar alcohols. No fake anything!
Organic Coconut Nectar
We use non-GMO, raw 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.
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.
Organic, Fair Trade Coconut Oil
We use Global Goods Inc.’s 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:
