RICH STORY & FAQs

My name is Polina and I am the founder of RICHbars. 



When I used to be a kid my mother preferred to treat us with an orange instead of a cookie,
a handful of cashews instead of a candy.
We never thought that we hadn’t had a dessert, because we had one!
Growing up, I’ve learnt that not everyone sees fruits and nuts the same way.
Indeed, for most people they are boring snacks rather than delicious treats.
Therefore, when I saw the statistics regarding diabetes, I wasn’t surprised. I was terribly sad.

For years dessert has been known as something you have to give up for a healthy lifestyle.
At RICHbars we disagree and we believe that it is a matter of choosing the right approach.
We create an example of no sugar added, nutritious,
at the same time delicious and Instagram-worthy treat,
that people can enjoy without sacrificing their health.

 

 

What is unique about RICHbars?

RICHbars are a delicious blend of unsweetened fruits, nuts and spices. Made from whole food they will impress you with the variety of flavors and textures, so unexpected from regular bars!

What does RICH in RICHbars stand for?

Our bars are full-flavored, packed with nutrients and vitamins and gorgeous, so we couldn’t pick any other name to describe all these qualities, but RICHbars.

Are RICHbars unprocessed?

RICHbars are made by a simple process in which fruit, nuts, and spices are ground and mixed together. They are not baked or cooked. 

Is there added sugar in RICHbars?

There is no sugar added to the RICHbars. The sweet taste comes from the natural sweetness of fruits, such as mangos, apricots, pineapple, dates, etc.  The exception to this are products that contain chocolate chips. Chocolate chips contain cane sugar.

Where does fat in RICHbars come from?

The fat (mostly unsaturated) in RICHbars comes from nuts and, in some cases, coconut.

Are RICHbars vegan?

RICHbars are free of any animal products, however our company is not third-party certified and our products are made in a facility that also processes milk and eggs. 

Are RICHbars gluten-free?

RICHbars are not certified gluten-free and produced in the facility that processes wheat, but all our bars, with the exception of Classic and Kuraga that contain rolled oats, are free of gluten products. If you are sensitive to gluten and can’t enjoy RICHbars, please check back as we have every intention to become certified!

Do RICHbars contain allergens?

Yes. Allergens vary by flavor, so always check the nutritional facts before eating a RICHbar and consult your doctor if you have questions.

NOTE: Our bars are manufactured in a facility that also processes wheat, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, milk and soy.

Are RICHbars Whole30® compliant?

Yes. With the exception of our Classic and Kuraga bars, all RICHbar flavors are Whole30® compliant. We recommend consulting with Whole30® on how to best use RICHbars on your Whole30®.

Is there a nut free RICHbar?

Yes! Kuraga bar is our nut-free flavor, however it is processed on the same equipment that processes tree nuts and peanuts.

How much caffeine does the Espresso Brownie bar contain?

4 mg of caffeine–that’s no more than a sip of coffee. We use coffee for flavor, not as a boost, so this bar won’t replace your morning cup, which typically contains between 95-200 mg of caffeine, but satisfies your coffee crave in the afternoon;)

Are RICHbars safe for kids to eat?

Absolutely! They can be a great addition to your kid’s lunch box or a morning/afternoon/wheneveryouwant treat! Please check the nutrition label to learn about any possible allergens.
