I’ve secretly been eating these for years, just hoping that the non-gluten-free oats wouldn’t bother me. But now, knowing that they swapped out their regular oats for gluten-free ones I no longer have to worry.
According to the LUNA Bar website their ingredient suppliers confirmed that all ingredients are gluten free and are purchased from trusted, domestic farm suppliers. Most ingredients are organic. The manufacturing facility is capable of making gluten-free food and end products are tested to confirm that they are gluten-free. In addition to being gluten-free, bars also use non GMO ingredients and are certified Kosher.
LUNA Bars were launched in 1999 by the Clif Bar & Company founders Gary and Kit. They set out to create a delicious and nutritious bar that women would love.
These bars were specifically crafted to include nutrients typically missing from a woman’s diet.
I find these bars to be somewhere in between a standard granola bar and a power bar. They are more substantial than a granola bar but not as dense as a power bar. Even after getting smooshed in my work bag they still hold together and taste fine. It’s a staple in case I can’t find food that’s safe to eat or if I need a quick snack or breakfast on the go.
LUNA Bars now come in a variety of flavors and can be purchased by the bar or per case at most supermarkets. Favors include: Blueberry Bliss, Caramel Nut Brownie (my favorite), Chocolate Dipped Coconut, Chocolate Peppermint Stick, Honey Salted Peanut, Iced Oatmeal Raisin, LemonZest, Nutz Over Chocolate (my 2nd favorite), Peanut Butter Cookie, S’mores, Vanilla Almond and White Chocolate Macadamia.
