Everyone from children to senior citizens can benefit from the wonderful nutritional qualities of chia seeds.

  23. Q: Are the bars free of pesticides and herbicide-free?
    A: Yes, they are; they are USDA organic.

  24. Q: Is the cassava syrup in the bar raw? If it is, then how do we process it to ensure there are no "cyanide-like substances" present in the final product?
    A: The starch is thoroughly washed which removes most of the cyanide products. It is then caked and flash dried, which will remove the remainder.

    In addition, during the syrup processing, the starch slurry reaches 105 C. The starch manufacturer does monitor the cyanide levels.

  25. Q: Why isn't sunflower lecithin listed as organic?
    A: There is no organic sunflower lecithin available, but the lecithin that we use has been approved as organic compliant, which means that it is processed in a natural enough way to comply with organic standards and be allowed in an organic certified bar at levels under 5%.

  26. Q: Why does the label list organic sugar?
    A: The organic sugar is in the organic dark chocolate coating. The organic chocolate coating requires a sweetener in order to be palatable.

  27. Q: Is this considered cold-processed?
    A: It would not be considered cold-processed, but it is processed at the lowest possible temperature to ensure all nutrients remain intact and stay within organic guidelines.
