But we do it slowly and deliberately. We spend a significant amount of time researching and perfecting the recipe on each flavor. For instance, it took us 100+ published studies and 75 major recipe iterations to create our award-winning flagship protein nutrition bar. We would rather have fewer flavors that you can enjoy and truly benefit from instead of a dozen substandard ones.
A few flavors we are working on right now and are really excited about:
1. Ketogenic dark chocolate truffle flavor: Scheduled for launch in Oct/Nov 2020. Just like the original bar, this one is also aiming for the superlatives. More details are a secret at this time, but we can't wait to share them with you soon. We will be launching a Kickstarter campaign on this with some amazing goodies and giveaways. Stay tuned.
2. Runners bar: This bar is being designed specifically for runners, skiers, surfers, and adventure sports athletes.
3. Plant-based bar : This bar will have the highest combination of protein for the lowest amount of sugar compared to leading plant-based bars.
4. We have a couple of other industry-first surprise items. We will keep you posted.
We are proud of this achievement. For a natural bar, Oorja has the highest total amount of protein and fiber per gram. The process of comparison review and audit is described below:
We first selected all the bars made with only natural ingredients from the list of top sellers. For the list of top sellers, data came from following sources: (a) Amazon best sellers in sports nutrition protein bars category for 2018, and (b) Drug Store News.: https://www.statista.com/statistics/462928/us-dollar-sales-share-of-the-leading-nutritional-intrinsic-health-value-bar-brands/
We then went through nutrition facts data of each of these bars and documented the quantity of each macro listed therein. We took the total amount of protein and fiber for each bar, normalized it to the total amount of protein and fiber per gram. We then compared it with the total amount of protein and fiber per gram of Oorja bar.
After our comparison review was completed, we sent our documentation and results to a third party QA group. They audited and confirmed our findings.
If you are interested in the detailed comparison data, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to share it with you.
Short answer is it should not, because of the extra steps we took. But a small percentage of people may experience some distress because they generally have problems with high fiber packaged foods. If you happen to be one of them, then make sure you start with only half a bar at first and drink more water. It is water that helps unlock the benefits of fiber and also helps you with digestion.
Here is more explanation of how we have tried to make our fiber gentler on your tummy.
We take fiber from three diverse sources - chicory root fiber, fiber from organic almond butter, and tapioca fiber. Because of this diversity, we believe that the fiber is better handled by most consumers compared to a single isolated source of fiber used in other protein bars.
That said, if your body is not adapted to high fiber or has reactions to it, we recommend the following:
As mentioned above, drink enough water when you have any kind of high fiber diet. It is water that really helps fiber do the job it is supposed to do. It also helps prevent GI stress.
If you are simply not used to eating a high fiber diet, then know this. Your body has the ability to get used to high fiber over a period of time. This is a biological fact. You can start with eating just half a bar at any given time. You can keep the other half in the bar wrapper and put a rubber band around it. The double layered wrapper with enhanced sealant should keep the bars fresh. Eat the other half after a few hours or next day as you see fit. Start gradually like this and then go from there as per your comfort level.
For any reason, if you still have an issue with digesting the bars, don't worry. You are fully covered by our guarantee. Just email us at email@example.com. We will issue you a full refund even if you have eaten a few bars. We will also pay for the return shipment of your unused bars.
We didn't. However, our ingredients are individually non-GMO and gluten free certified. Therefore, we didn't think it was necessary to achieve a separate certification for the bar as a whole. Being a small business, we are cost conscious and selective about where we spend.
The ingredients are chosen from carefully vetted and certified suppliers to make sure that they are non-GMO and gluten free. We do call out each ingredient being non-GMO or organic on our packaging. And because of that, we are directly under the FDA's purview that ensures our packaging claims are true.
Right here in California, USA. We create and maintain recipes in San Francisco. We produce them in Southern California in partnership with a co-packer. We decided to do so in order to ensure exceptional quality and safety for larger scale production. Our manufacturing facility is SQF certified and follows strict GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) policies. Rest assured, the bars are made with the highest and most stringent quality and safety standards right here in California, USA.
