Frequently Asked Questions

How do you determine the cost of your bars?

At Wild Zora, we use only the highest quality ingredients. We make natural snacks for healthy people. 

The main ingredients in our meat & veggie Paleo bars are:
  • 100% grass-fed beef (the most expensive kind)
  • organic unsulfured apricots
  • VEGGIES such as kale, peppers, and tomatoes (depending on the recipe)

These real, all-natural ingredients raise the price of our paleo bars, but for a truly healthy snack, we think it’s worth it.  It’s also important to note that our meat dehydrates to nearly 50% of its original fresh-weight, and our veggies by up to 90%!  This means that our natural snacks have 3X the nutrition density when dried.


Is your meat organic?

Did you know that organic raised animals can still eat grains on a feed-lot (as long as the grains are “organic”)? We focus instead on animals who are raised as nature intended. Meat in our paleo bars is 100% grass-fed, completely natural and humanely raised on-pasture with no added growth hormones or antibiotics. While we pay attention to how the meat is labelled, we pay more attention to how the animals are treated. We believe that healthy and happy animals are more important than “organic” certifications.


Is your turkey and lamb grass-fed?

Turkeys don’t eat grass, but we make sure all the turkey meat in our paleo bars is free-range, meaning the birds are raised on-pasture and have the ability to graze, peck and roost as they please.

As for our lamb, we once tried a “grass-fed” lamb from Colorado… but when the animals struggle to get through the harsh winters, it really affected the amount of fat in the final product; the texture wasn’t quite right and the taste was “gamey" and just not up to our standards for natural snacks. We now use an “all-natural” lamb from a local rancher in Colorado that doesn’t have the “official” certifications, but the animals have the ability to move freely in and out of the out-buildings, they look healthy and happy, and the taste is superior.


Why do you say “spices” for your Paleo bars — why don’t you show all the ingredients?

In order to list an ingredient, the FDA requires you to disclose the exact amount. We worked hard to create our healthy snack recipes and it’s important to us to protect them. If you have concerns about a potential ingredient or specific spice, please contact us!

Do you have a Paleo bar recipe without onion or garlic?

Not yet, but follow our blog for news and updates on new recipes for our healthy snacks!


How much gluten is present in your Paleo bars?

We test our products regularly and have never shown a single reading of gluten (on equipment capable of seeing amounts of 4 parts per million or greater). In order to write “gluten-free certified” on a label, products must be anywhere under 10-20 ppm. We are proud that ingredients containing gluten are not allowed inside our production facility -- at any time or for any reason -- so that we can continue to avoid gluten in all our natural snacks.


Do you have a vegetarian bar?

Wild Zora does not offer a vegetarian bar. We believe that a healthy, balanced diet is built on veggies and healthy proteins in their natural form, including meat. We apologize if this means we cannot accommodate your diet.


What is the small white packet in the package?

The small white packet is an oxygen scavenger that allows us to increase the shelf life of our natural snacks, without adding preservatives. The packet is non-toxic and the contents do not come into contact with the food. But please do not eat this packet!


Why is your package bigger than your product?

We have designed the package to be as small as possible, while still sealing safely to protect your food. We’re not trying to trick you into thinking the product is bigger than it is -- it’s simply a reality of manufacturing consistently and safely. We also use the most recyclable commercial plastic available (polyethylene) to lower our environmental impact.


I found a hard bit in my bar. What is it?

Our product is made out of real food, no whey protein or lab experiments here! We grind up REAL meat and fresh fruit in our healthy snacks so bone and fruit pit fragments are a possibility. It’s not glamourous, but it’s a reality of all natural snack food and we think it’s worth it. If you’re worried, chew slowly.


What is the shelf life of your foods?

Our paleo bar products don’t contain any chemical preservatives, so they only last about 9-months from manufacture… but hopefully that’s enough time for you to eat it! It’s best to store natural snacks in a cool, dry place such as a basement or a pantry.

Do not keep your paleo bars sitting out unrefrigerated after opening! Our bars are not designed for storage once you open the package and expose them to the air.


Why don’t you put a ziploc on the bag?

Wild Zora bars need to be consumed upon opening the package. Our ingredients are fresh and contain no preservatives, which means that as an all natural snack they can spoil and mold once they’re exposed to oxygen. If you ever find a package with a compromised seal, please contact us immediately.


Where can I buy Wild Zora bars?

Wild Zora is sold in over 500 stores throughout the USA. Please check out our store locator to find distributors near you, or simply order our healthy snacks online here.


Can I have a free sample or sticker?

We would love to give away free things, but as a young, family-owned business, we are working hard to grow and aren’t quite at the give-away stage. Keep supporting Wild Zora paleo bars and help us get to that point!
