Kosuma Bars - case of 12
WHY ARE KOSUMA BARS A HEALTHY CHOICE?
Our bars are rich in macronutrients including protein, healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, and fibre to keep you nourished and satisfied throughout the day. Our high quality ingredients also provide vitamins and minerals to ensure well being. We don’t bake our bars. Whenever possible, our ingredients are raw, so you get as many nutrients as possible.
Unlike simple carbs, complex carbs – nuts, seeds and whole grains such as oats – take longer to digest and are packed with ﬁbre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Complex carbs do not give you a sugar spike and allow you to stay satisfied for longer periods of time.
We do not use trans-fatty acids or hydrogenated oils in our bars. The nuts and seeds offer heart healthy, beneficial omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Omega-3s are considered essential fatty acids because they cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained solely from dietary sources. They are particularly abundant in the ﬂax seeds found in all flavours of our bars. Omega-3s have been known to help lower the risk of heart disease mainly by lowering triglycerides and countering inﬂammation; they are commonly deficient among North Americans. Good fats help your body to absorb more nutrients from foods, and keep you satiated and sustained for longer periods of time.
Tapioca syrup is a subtle natural sweetener that comes from the cassava or yucca vegetable root. Cassava, a sustainable crop, is the third largest source of carbohydrates in the world and exists in many varieties in South America, India, and Asia. Tapioca syrup is gluten and GMO free. It is a fantastic alternative to corn syrup, sugar, honey, maple syrup and molasses. Aside from being a healthful sweetener replacement, tapioca contains antioxidants and aids in digestion.
Our bars do not contain gluten. We use a 100% gluten free oat from Avena Foods, the largest supplier of its kind in North America. Our oats are pure and not subjected to cross contamination allowing them to be free from wheat, barley, and rye.
Salt is vital for life. However, the commercial table and cooking salts on the market are chemically cleaned and highly processed eliminating essential minerals. They also contain anti-clumping additives.
We use Himalayan salt from the Himalayas in Pakistan. Pink or white in colour, it is often referred to as “white gold”. Himalayan salt contains the same 84 essential minerals found in the human body.
