Dates are a great source of glucose (energy that is easily digested and quickly absorbed) and rich in vitamins and minerals such as calcium, iron, phosphorus, thiamin, and folate.
Our Organic Energy Bars are date based, allowing us to avoid using any refined sugars, while remaining low on the glycemic index. Dates are the perfect fuel for long adventures or for a midday energy boost energy without the spike or crash!
WHERE DO WE SOURCE OUR DATES?
California | We proudly source our Deglet Noor dates from Jewel Date Farm in Thermal, California. Jewel resides in the heart of the Coachella Valley — arguably the best date-growing region in all of North America.
Indus River Region | Valued for their sweetness, we use Aseel dates from the Indus River region. Food production in the ancient Indus River Valley goes back over 4,000 years due to its rich, fertile soil. Less fibrous and easier to pit than most California varietals, Aseel dates provide the smooth consistency we value in our organic energy bars.
Tunisia | Often referred to as ‘the queen of dates’, Tunisian Deglet Noors are the sole date product in our organic gels. Commonly grown in Mediterranean areas, Deglet Noors hold the highest market value in Tunisia and across international markets.
