INGREDIENTS WE DON'T LOVE


Dosha® Bar wants good people everywhere to be more mindful of what's in our food.  The below ingredients are found in other popular bars but NOT in Dosha® Bar.  Maybe these items are normal to lab and food scientists but we prefer to use "real" ingredients, closer to nature.  In no particular order, here's our running list of ingredients that we would rather live without.  Are you sure they aren't listed on your favorite bar?  

  1. Sweetened Fruit (it started out as fruit but was then infused with approximately 50% sugar or apple juice concentrate, thus changing the nutritional content and true taste of the fruit).  

  2. Non-Organic Fruit and Seeds (the nutritional content may be the same but while it's more expensive, we prefer to leave our soil and bodies unfettered and clean of pesticides)  

  3. Inulin (we'd rather get it from "real" food like asparagus, onions, or garlic)

  4. Vegetable Glycerin

  5. Agar

  6. Oat Syrup Solids (Sound like yummm to you?  No thanks)

  7. Natural flavor (yep, that's all it says so what is this??)

  8. Juice concentrates (we prefer to put the actual fruit in, not a concentrated juice)

  9. Pea crisps (pea protein and pea flour)

  10. Pectin

  11. Beef albumin

  12. Isomalto-oligosaccharide

  13. Rice dextrins

  18. Baking soda

  19. Chicory Extract

  20. Powders (of various kinds)
