NutriBlast Vegan Bar

This is a variant of my top bar, the Bug Out Bar. (Definition of “Bug Out”: Britsh Army slang - To move away from your current location very qucickly (often under fire) because your position has been compromised by the enemy.)

I replaced the honey with rice malt syrup and a larger amount of maple syrup, removed the animal products (bee pollen, brewer’s yeast, colostrum, egg yolk powder, whey protein concentrate) and some other ingredients to which a few I have spoken to have an intolerance (Acetyl L-Carnitine, green coffee bean extract, lecithin, N-Acetyl L-Cysteine, savoury yeast flakes and stevia).

These were my design specifications for the Bug Out Bar from which this NutriBlast Bar is a descendent:

  • 1. Will serve as a meal replacement/emergency rations (didn’t quite make that target)
  • 2. Will provide a minimum of 25% of Recommended Daily Intake of 14 vitamins and 10 minerals
  • 3. No GMOs
  • 4. No artificial Colours
  • 5. No artificial flavours
  • 6. No artificial sweeteners like Aspartame, Splendor, Equal etc.
  • 7. No cane sugar
  • 8. No dairy
  • 9. No excitotoxins
  • 10. No gluten detectable
  • 11. No high fructose corn syrup
  • 12. No hydrogenated oils
  • 13. No irradiated ingredients
  • 14. No MSG added
  • 15. No peanuts
  • 16. No preservatives added
  • 17. No soy (currently contains soy lecithin)
  • 18. No trans fats
  • 19. No vegetable oils
  • 20. No wheat
  • 21. As many raw, natural ingredients as possible to provide as wide a range of nutrients as possible to the body
  • 22. Not cook the bar to preserve the enzymes in the raw ingredients and thus increase utilisation of nutrients
  • 23. Activate the seeds (pepitas, sesame, sunflower) and nuts (almonds, cashews, hazel nuts, pecans, walnuts) that need it to soak out the enzyme blockers thereby increase your absorbtion of nutrients
  • 24. Minimum of 8% protein
  • 25. Good source of fiber
  • 26. Vacuum sealed for maximum shelf life
  • 27. Packed in resealable bag to preserve freshness of uneaten portion (not yet, coming)
  • 28. Sealed from light for maximum shelf life
  • 29. Made in Australia

It’s quite a job formulating bars that gives 25% of the recommended daily intake of 24 nutrients as much as possible from natural ingredients.

So here is the result. This is the list of ingredients in the NutriBlast Bar. As you can imagine, with over 200 ingredients in the bar there are quite often times when a supplier does not bave everything I require in stock. When that happens the recipe will vary from batch to batch.
