Pea Fiber

 

A relatively new product on the market, our pea fiber is produced right here in Manitoba by Best Cooking Pulses. It’s been approved by Health Canada as a novel fiber for inclusion in food products aiming to make dietary fiber claims.

DISCLAIMER!!! Now, we aren't going to get all crazy and tell you that GORP bars can cure every ailment known to man and provide every single health benefit listed below... because that's SO not allowed :) We just want to give a shout out to our awesome ingredients for YOUR education... so you can see all the awesomeness we INTENTIONALLY pack into our bar and perhaps inspire you to incorporate some of them into your diet more often :)

You can purchase pills and highly-processed bran bars to ramp up your fiber intake, but why not eat a GORP bar and benefit from the protein, Omega-3, antioxidants, and long-lasting energy while you’re at it! We formulated this bar according to the four biggest health lifestyle trends today: Protein, Fiber, Omega-3, and Antioxidants. So you don’t even have to think about it.

Lose Weight and Cleanse Your Colon!
Fiber cleans your system of unwanted debris and toxins, plus it helps reduce the absorption of calories you’ve already consumed. It does this by speeding up the passage of food through your intestine so your body doesn’t have time to absorb the full amount of calories.
