Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some common questions about MixABar. If you have a question that is not addressed, feel free to drop us a line.
Why make your own energy bars?
For the same reason you would prepare a home cooked meal — to have something fresh and delicious with no preservatives. With MixABar it’s a snap. Just mix with water and eat on the go, or refrigerate for later. Either way, MixABar is the only energy bar that is totally unprocessed and raw.
How do you make MixABar?
It’s simple! Just pour MixABar in a bowl, mix in water and refrigerate. MixABar will start to set in 2-3 hours. We recommend leaving it overnight.
Can I add protein to MixABar?
We do not recommend it. MixABar is formulated to provide a perfect balance of protein, carbohydrate and healthy fat. If you want more protein, eat a bigger piece.
What does MixABar taste like?
Other bars are basically glorified candy bars — loaded with sugar to achieve a long shelf life. In contrast, MixABar is a dry mix, so there is no need to add sugar as a preservative. MixABar is less sweet than other bars and is hence better for your health.
Do I need to keep MixABar in the fridge?
Yes. MixABar has no preservatives. Once mixed with water, MixABar will keep for 1-2 weeks in the fridge and 2-3 months in the freezer. If you take MixABar out of the fridge, you should consume it the same day. Note: MixABar dry mix will keep for a year or more if properly sealed and stored in a cool, dry place.
Can MixABar help me lose weight?
Absolutely! To lose weight, you must consume minimally processed foods that have the right balance of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fat. MixABar is formulated to do exactly that. MixABar can reduce cravings and is ideal for a mid morning or mid afternoon snack. For additional health tips, see the Blog page.
Why does MixABar contain fat?
There are different types of fat. Saturated fat and trans fat are bad for you. MixABar contains unsaturated fat from raw nuts and seeds. These “good” fats will reduce your cholesterol, unclog your arteries, and help you reach your weight loss goals.
Can I add ingredients to suit my taste?
