The Maya Superfood Bar!
The Maya Bar – 100% Natural Gluten-Free Paleo Bar Powered by Plant Protein!
We are very excited to announce our first product, the Maya Superfood Bar! This extraordinary bar is the result of many months of research about the ancient Mayan diet, and experimenting with dozens of recipes and various ingredients to get a perfect balance of amazing rich flavor and consistency. These bars are absolutely delicious!
Food was an extremely important aspect to ancient Mayan life and was often incorporated into their creation myths and used as ceremonial offerings. Many of their foods were highly prized and considered sacred for having many beneficial and medicinal qualities. When the Spaniards conquered the land, they recognized the importance of food to the Maya people and in an effort to suppress their cultural traditions and beliefs, many of their superfoods were outlawed, and thus much of this knowledge was lost for centuries. Thankfully, many of their foods are being rediscovered and are gaining worldwide recognition for their amazing nutritional benefits. We like to think that this bar pays homage to the ancient knowledge and life of the Mayans.
Our Maya bar is packed full of healthy essential nutrients from 9 fascinating ingredients that the ancient Maya actually used. Naturally, it is made with raw cacao nibs, but we have also added amazing ingredients that still remain somewhat obscure to our Western diets, such as maya nut, popped amaranth and pepitas. The other ingredients that comprise this bar each have their own fascinating history and are loaded with health benefits. You can learn about each one by clicking on the links below.
*Currently our Maya Bar is only available for samples at certain events and for commercial requests while we continue develop the business. Stay tuned for updates!
