5 Surprising Ingredients Inside Every Perfect Bar

Posted by Dustin Canada on

We hear it everywhere we go from first-time samplers and wary shoppers: “What makes it so perfect?” Rarely, we get to the part of our pitch that requires the big guns (or more obscure of our 20+ organic superfoods) before they happily place a box in their cart and speed away to the checkout counter. However, these 5 surprising ingredients found in every Perfect Bar recipe and may shock even the savviest of health nuts.

Take A Closer Look At These 5 Ingredients Found In Every Perfect Bar


1. Kale

Kale seems to be taking over the world of vegetables and for good reason; this leafy green is a disease-fighting powerhouse.

  • Excellent source of antioxidant vitamins A, C, and K
  • Rich in eye-health promoting lutein and zeaxanthin compounds
  • Contain cancer-preventive antioxidants called carotenoids and flavonoids
  • High fiber content lowers blood cholesterol levels and reduces the risk of heart disease
  • Good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus.

2. Kelp

It’s time to re-think this slimy ocean plant. Kelp is a type of seaweed or algae everyone should learn to love. Here are a few reasons why:

  • High in vitamin B, essential for cellular metabolism and energy-rich
  • High in vitamins C and E
  • Contains calcium, boron, and magnesium, all of which are necessary for strong bones and optimal muscle function
  • Rich in sodium alginate, which protects the body from harmful radiation
  • Contains iodine which supports a healthy thyroid, and chlorophyll, which stimulates red blood cell production


3. Rose Hip

Rose hips are the red fruit from the blossom of a wild rose plant. Although small in size, they have a bounty of health benefits packed inside:

  • High in antioxidants, vitamins A, C, E, and essential fatty acids
  • Improves joint mobility by discouraging white blood cells accumulation
  • Contains anti-cancer and cardiovascular disease-preventing compounds like carotenoids, flavonoids, polyphenols, leucoanthocyanins, and catechins.
  • High in anti-inflammatory properties for treating rheumatoid arthritis

4. Dulse

What the heck is dulse? This superfood packs a powerful punch! This salty sea veggie is traditionally served in soups and fish dishes. But as you know we often zig when others zag.

  • Rich in valuable minerals, including potassium and iron
  • Omega-3 and Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids help regulate blood clotting and blood pressure, which leads to the proper development of brain functioning and the nervous system
  • Excellent source of vitamin B-12 (usually found in meat, poultry, eggs) for vegans and vegetarians
  • A 3.5 oz. serving of dulse provides 21.5 grams of protein, which is about 40% of the recommended daily value set by the FDA


5. Alfalfa

Adding the perfect crunch to any sandwich, alfalfa is a healthy vegetable, although it often goes unrecognized. Here are just a few reasons why we think #itsjustperfect!

  • High in vitamins A, B, D, E, and K
  • Loaded with biotin, calcium, folic acid, iron, magnesium, and potassium
  • High in protein (especially when dried)
  • Flushes built-up toxins in bowels, lowers cholesterol and purifies the blood
  • Healing properties against sore or achy joints, imbalanced skin conditions, and bad breath
