People ask us all the time, “Perfect Bar, what makes you different?” Other than our nutty personality and delicious taste, we believe we have some nutritious qualities that make us different than the rest.
For starters, we aren’t found in the protein bar aisle. You can find us chilling in the refrigerated section next to fresh-cut produce and kombuchas. We are always soy and whey-free and know that the best things in life are made with love.
But for those of you looking for some hard stats about what makes us different, we pulled together what we think makes us a little more perfect than the rest:
We already said this one, but it’s worth repeating because it’s a biggie! We are the original refrigerated protein bar and since we don’t use chemical preservatives, overly-processed ingredients or emulsifiers, refrigeration is required to maintain the optimal freshness, consistency and flavor of our bars.
The refrigeration acts as the second-level of security to keep that delicious cookie-dough texture you know and love. After a week outside of the fridge, the texture and flavor begin to change, as the whole food ingredients begin to separate from the oils (like a jar of peanut butter).
“Well, what does Low GI mean then?” Glycemic Index (GI) is a relative ranking of carbohydrates in food by the ability to raise blood glucose levels. More simply put: The GI is a value that measures how carb-containing foods influence blood sugar levels. The higher the GI rank, the higher blood glucose levels will rise.
“And why does it matter?” Low GI foods may have a positive impact on eating choices by increasing satiety or feelings of fullness, and weight loss or control, as well as improve insulin resistance and glucose levels for people with type 2 diabetics.

We are committed to being gluten-free because we want our bars to be enjoyed by as many people as possible.
We only use clean ingredients, which means Non-GMO seeds to start.
Of the many roles honey plays in the recipe of today’s Perfect Bar, the original reason they turned to honey was for its sweetness. We use honey not only to sweeten the bars but also to preserve and bind all the ingredients as well as using refrigeration to supplement honey and keep the bars fresh.
This ancient preservation duo work in perfect union to keep the bars delicious, nutritional and fresh for up to 6 months in the fridge. When on the go, the bars, thanks to the sticky sweetness of honey, will stay good for up to a week out of the fridge.
Twenty organic superfoods, like fruits, vegetables, seeds and oils, are found in every bar and help provide a convenient source of vitamins and minerals.
