Granola Bar VS Energy Bar
At Kate’s Real Food it’s our mission to provide you with real food and real energy. To do this, we use only the best, organic ingredients filled with sustainable energy from whole foods. Food bars come in all shapes and sizes including: breakfast, granola, oat, nut, protein, meal replacement, snack, and energy. We are happy to fall under a number of these categories, but our most central is that of organic energy bars.
The Merrium-Webster dictionary defines granola bar as “a bar made of a mixture of oats and other ingredients (such as brown sugar, raisins, coconut, or nuts) that is eaten as a snack”.
- Mixture of oats? ✅
- Other ingredients? ✅
- Eaten as a snack? ✅
Each Kate’s bar contains organic certified gluten free oats as well as a variety of other whole food ingredients which makes it the perfect snack bar. So, yes, call us your favorite granola bar,but let us provide you with much more than just a snack.
Qualities of an Energy Bar
It is more difficult to define an energy bar. There are parameters that an energy food should fall within, and with so many options on the market, it is hard to know which one is best for you. Here are a few of the qualities energy food bars should have:
The best energy bars are made with unaltered, whole-food ingredients that are filled with natural nutritional value. From antioxidants and fiber to complex carbohydrates and healthy fats, real food is the only answer.
Nutritional Caloric Value
Calories are a unit to measure energy intake for our daily diet. Nutrient-dense calories fuel our bodies to perform their best and get us through each workout, busy day, and intense adventure. This is where quality ingredients come into play: providing you with not only caloric energy but vitamins, minerals, and fiber as well.
Carbohydrates. Fats. Proteins. The source of energy in our diets is macronutrients. You need all three to be naturally balanced in your choice of energy bar. We believe that the best energy bar is carefully crafted to combine a natural balance of all three macros for a slow-burning energy that keeps you going.
Granola bars or energy bars, call them what you will! With so many food bars on the market, it is hard to know what is best for you. That’s why, at Kate’s Real Food, we make it clear that our organic energy bars are made from only the best ingredients for quality energy and a naturally great taste.
