Nothing says Colorado like “natural.” In true Colorado fashion, both consumers and retailers are getting back to nutritional basics, seeking out unprocessed, quality food products. As one of the healthiest populations in the U.S, it is no surprise a few of its own are working to develop wholesome nutrition bars for those on-the-go.

Convenient for traveling or grabbing a snack on the run, locally-made nutrition bars now pack a loaded punch of whole foods and hearty nutrition. Check out our favorite Colorado-made nutrition bars found at retailers across the state:

Breeze Bars (Boulder, Colorado)

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.

Check out our Q/A session with Breeze Brown to find out how Breeze Bars take the guessing out of nutrition labels:

Braaap Nutrition & The Paleo Diet Bar (Fort Collins, Colorado)

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.

Inca Bar Quinoa (Fort Collins, Colorado)

Growing up in the altiplano of Peru, Betto Diaz has a true appreciation for the ancient ingredients which comprise his quinoa-based nutrition bars. Made with Incan superfoods Maca and Sacha Inchi, these bars are a source of both antioxidants and Omega 3 fatty acids. Gluten free, soy free and vegan, Inca Bars contain no added vitamins, minerals, or processed proteins, only whole-foods and supergrains of the highest quality.
