New FDA Rulings on IMO
January 22, 2020:
The FDA recently changed the definition of dietary fiber for purposes of nutrition labeling, and decided that IMO does not qualify as dietary fiber. Our products currently are labeled in accordance with FDA's previous nutrition labeling rules, which remain in effect until January 2021 for companies of our size and which allowed IMO to be counted as dietary fiber. We are in the process of reformulating our products with different fiber sources and relabeling our products in accordance with FDA's new rules. We expect to have the newly formulated products on the market within the next few months.
Are all of your products vegan?
Are all of your products gluten free?
Yes, we are certified gluten-free. Our ingredients are all gluten-free from non-cross-contaminated sources.
Why does the shape/appearance of the bar vary?
We produce our bars in several facilities and on different machines. All the recipes are exact, but the final appearance will vary slightly.
Are all of your products made with nuts?
Yes, while we do have a peanut-free selection, there are other types of nuts used.
You say you have peanut-free products. How do you keep those bars free from contamination?
We swab the machines between each run of production until there are no allergens present. The bars, as listed on the packaging, are made on machinery that handles peanuts and tree nuts, so we cannot provide a full guarantee.
Can you ship my order overnight?
Yes, we can! Orders must be placed my 10AM EST to receive next day shipping. Orders placed after 10AM EST with overnight shipping will be shipped the next business day.
Do you ship internationally?
We do ship to some foreign countries, but the shipping can get expensive! The best international shipping rates are available through iHerb.com.
I see that your GLO bars contain isomalto-oligosaccharides (IMO) - what is it?
This is a gluten-free, non-GMO sweetener. We only use IMO made from tapioca--not corn.
Are you non-GMO?
Yes, we are certified non-GMO.
Who is your kosher authority?
Our kosher authority is Natural Food Certifiers in Spring Valley, New York.
What is the shelf life of Raw Rev bars?
The shelf life is one year from date of production.
Why do you call yourselves Raw Rev?
Simple! All of our products are infused with raw ingredients and we love representing that.
What is spirulina?
Spirulina is a highly nutritious blue-green algae that is 100% natural. It was a significant food source for a number of civilizations (such as the Aztecs) and has been widely used as a dietary supplement since the 1970s.
Spirulina contains rich vegetable protein in excess of 60% by weight, approximately three times that of fish or beef, and is also a good source of vitamin B 12, a nutrient which is particularly lacking in a vegetarian diet. Spirulina has a wide range of minerals (including iron, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, and calcium), a high volume of cell-protecting beta-carotene (five times more than carrots, 40 times more than spinach), and is a good source of gamma-linolein acid, which may reduce cholesterol and prevent heart disease. Other benefits of Spirulina include boosting the immune system, improving digestion, detoxifying the body, boosting energy levels, and controlling appetite. Our organic Spirulina is grown and processed on a tropical island in the South China Sea in a GMP-certified facility.
