Do Mediterra bars contain peanuts?
Your health and well-being are most important to us. Apart from our savory bars, which are manufactured in a nut-free facility, all other Mediterra’s bars are produced in facilities that process tree nuts and peanuts, thus some of our products may contain traces of these and other nuts.
Are Mediterra bars gluten free?
Yes, all Mediterra bars are gluten-free. With regard to our yogurt bars, the facility in which we produce them is not a dedicated wheat-free facility, and therefore we are obliged by law to mention that there may be traces of wheat in our products since there are people who are allergic to wheat (an allergen). In order to guarantee our gluten-free claim, our products are tested for gluten and meet FDA’s proposed requirement of less than 20ppm (0.002%) of gluten.
Are Mediterra bars organic?
The USDA organic seal verifies that a multi-ingredient product has 95% or more certified organic content. Although Mediterra does use many organic ingredients, it is less than the 95% required to make the official label claim.
Are your Bars Low Glycemic?
Presently, we have not had the Mediterra Bars tested, so we can’t claim that they’re “officially” low glycemic. However, based on the Mediterranean Diet, the ingredients used in Mediterra Bars such as pistachios, walnuts, olive oil, whole seeds, grains and fruit among others, are foods that contain significant complex carbohydrates. These complex carbohydrates generate a slower digestion, resulting in a lower impact on blood sugar levels and help with overall blood sugar maintenance. Mediterra Bars are all-natural, non –GMO, gluten-free, contain fiber, protein, are under 180 calories and low in sugar. If you’re on a formal glycemic food plan, please check with your physician to determine if it’s a good fit for you.
How should the bars be Stored?
The Mediterra bars are best stored in a cool and dry environment.
