Developed by Breeze Brown, a registered dietitian, Breeze Bars were engineered for her younger sister who had been recently diagnosed with Celiac disease. Gluten-free, dairy-free and wheat-free, they accommodate a variety of dietary needs. In addition, all of the protein in Breeze Bars comes from whole nuts, whole seeds or NON-GMO roasted soy beans. The company is even working towards NON-GMO certification with the NON-GMO Project.
Braaap: the sound of acceleration or to jumpstart a journey. The perfect name for nutrition bars geared toward active individuals and adrenaline junkies. Gluten, soy and preservative free, Braaap Nutrition Bars get back to the basics, rather than rely on foods altered by science. Their sister company, Paleo Diet Foods, even offers a dairy-free product, the Paleo Diet Bar, which contains egg white protein - a source of all nine branch chain amino acids.
