We only use meat from local farmers. Why? It eliminates the carbon footprint of international transportation. It also allows us to check the farming practices and well-being of the animals. We know the animals are treated well, not because of a fancy label, but because we visit the farms.
To support US farmers, buy Wild Zora or Tanka.
Other bars, such as Epic, Bricks, The New Primal, Krave, Perky Jerky, Mighty Organic, and Wilde, use meats from other countries or unspecified sources.
Many snacks on the market will contain lactic acid starter culture. It is a preservative that can be derived from dairy. If you can’t tolerate dairy, you can try to find for products that use a plant-derived lactic acid starter culture. Unfortunately, most companies don’t disclose the type of lactic acid starter culture they are using on the packaging, so you have to do your research beforehand. On top of potentially aggravating your digestion, lactic acid tends to leave behind an unpleasant, sour taste.
To stay away from lactic acid, reach for Wild Zora, RX Bar, Lärabar, Krave Jerky, Cliff Bar, or KIND.
If you are concerned about lactic acid in your foods, stay away from Bricks, New Primal, Epic, Tanka, Perky Jerky and Mighty Organic.
