Frequently Asked Questions
We want all your questions to be answered! If you aren't finding the answer you're looking for, contact us!
Is there actually a Kate?
There is! These days, shes hard at work developing new products to fuel your future adventures.
What makes Kate’s bars different from all the other bars out there?
We believe that healthy, great-tasting food helps make life sweet! Eating Kate’s is an experience in itself. That's why each bar is filled with distinct textures and flavors; contains quality, whole-food, organic ingredients; and comes with a great-taste guarantee. Go ahead: take a bite and try us for yourself!
Are your bars Non-GMO?
Yes. We source organic, non-GMO ingredients.
Are Kate's bars raw and/or vegan?
Kate’s bars are not fully raw, but do contain raw ingredients. We are not considered vegan because all of our products are sweetened with all natural honey and our Tram Bar contains milk chocolate.
Is there dairy in your bars?
Kate's flavors are all dairy free, except for the Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Tram Bar and Bites.
Do you use soy?
No. Kate’s products are all soy free.
It seems like Kate’s bars have more sugar than other bars. What’s the deal there?
Ounce per ounce, Kate's products have approximately the same amount of sugar as most other bars and bites on the market. To compare with other similar products, divide the grams of sugar on the packaging by the ounce. When considering sugar count, it’s important to remember that Kate's products are sweetened with organic honey. The natural sugars in honey give a more sustained energy boost and have been found to keep blood sugar levels more consistent than other sugars do.
Why do the bars have two servings?
In short, serving sizes are regulated by the FDA: in the grain-based bar category (which Kate's falls into), products over 40 grams must list at least 2 serving sizes. However, our packaging does have a twist-and-save option for your single-serving-size adventures.
Do all of your products contain chocolate?
The Tiki and Bivy products do not contain chocolate--and the ones that do have it don’t have a large amount.
How much protein do your bars have? Why don’t they have more?
The bars have between 5 and 9 grams of protein, and the bites bags have between 15 and 27 grams. We are currently looking into ways to add protein without using highly processed soy or whey--and without sacrificing quality or taste.
