What does ORAC mean in Just Great Stuff bars?

A lot of thought, care, and patience went into the development of our organic Just Great Stuff bars to ensure the quality, taste, and nutrition were superb.

We knew our bars were packed full of antioxidants—the great stuff that may protect your cells against the effects of free radicals, but we wanted to know how much. Brunswick Laboratories, an independent third-party laboratory completed the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) certification that measured the antioxidants in our Just Great Stuff bars.

Our Just Great Stuff Fruit and Veggie tested out at 25,300 ORAC per bar, Superberry Acai Bar tested out at 25,800 ORAC per bar, Cacao Acai Bar came out at 34,100 ORAC per bar, and Chocolate Dream Greens Bar ORAC value came out at 21,700 per bar. Great Quality. Great Ingredients. Great Taste. Great Nutrition. Just Great Stuff bars are truly AH-MAZING!

What are Stabilyze bars?

Our Stabilyze nutrition bars provide a delicious, nutritionally balanced meal replacement or snack that will not significantly raise your blood sugar levels. The bar’s high quality ingredients provide at least 9 grams of protein, 7 grams of pre-biotic fiber, and 21 essential vitamins and minerals that support balanced blood sugar levels and help with appetite control. Our Stabilyze bars are suitable for consumers looking to control their sugar intake.

Stabilyze bars primarily have dark chocolate, nut butters, whey protein, organic agave syrup as the primary sugar source, plus 21 essential vitamins and minerals.

Is it OK to give Stabilyze bars to children?

It's fine to give Stabilyze nutrition bars to children over the age of 10. Our Stabilyze bars have healthy ingredients, no additives, and 21 essential vitamins and minerals all of which are great for anyone. Please note, however, the bars are not recommended for children under 10 years of age because the fiber amounts might cause loose stools.

Can Stabilyze bars be used for diet or weight loss?

We always recommends consulting your physician first before any new diet changes. Eating a low-calorie, high nutrient, high fiber, energy bar as a meal replacement or between meal snacks can help with weight loss management. Our Stabilyze bars also helps balance blood sugar levels, and when this happens, the body tends not to crave sugar or carbs that can also help in a weight management program.

My dog or cat ate a bar or snack, is that OK?

Several of our bars and nut butter balls contain dark chocolate that can be harmful to pets. If your dog or cat accidentally eats a bar or nut butter ball, please notify your veterinarian and let them know that your pet ate a bar containing a dark chocolate that is less than 65% cacao.

Why do we use Xylitol in our protein shakes?

Xylitol is used in our protein shakes as a sugar-free sweetener that has fewer calories and doesn’t spike blood sugar levels. In addition, Xylitol is smiled upon by your dentist! Xylitol inhibits the growth of the primary bacteria that causes cavities (Streptococcus mutans). Xylitol, for this reason, is often found in chewing gum and mints that help prevent tooth decay. Learn more about Xylitol.

It’s important to note, Xylitol can be poisonous to your dog. If your dog accidentally drinks the protein shake or eats the powder, please notify your veterinarian immediately.

What are the benefits of Whey Protein?

Whey protein is the better and preferred protein source between whey and soy protein due to the available essential amino acids found in whey protein. Whey protein contains leucine as a part of all nine essential amino acids required by the body to build, rebuild and maintain muscle mass. Soy protein is derived from the soy plant and does not contain the majority of the essential amino acids and doesn't promote muscle growth, rebuild or maintenance.

Why does the ingredients say it has soy lecithin?

Soy Lecithin is not soy protein. Soy contains a large fraction of protein that is mostly removed from soy lecithin. Because soy lecithin is extracted from the processed oil of the soya bean's shell, it contains none of this protein. Learn more about Soya vs Soy Lecithin.

Why use soy lecithin?

Soy lecithin possesses emulsification properties. This means it can keep a bar's ingredients "together" by making sure that the cocoa and the cocoa butter don't separate. It is also used in bakery items to keep the dough from sticking, and to improve its ability to rise.
