Nowadays, when you go into the grocery store and pick up a protein bar you likely will not recognize half of the ingredients on the nutrition label. That's why with TIROBAR, I wanted to add a new option in the protein bar industry by offering a high protein bar with simple and familiar ingredients that you can find in your own kitchen. I believe that transparency is key when it comes to food, which is why I want you to recognize and understand every ingredient listed on our label. Let's delve into the core ingredients of TIROBAR and discover the amazing benefits they offer.
4 Core Ingredients: Dates, Nuts, Pea Protein, + Hemp Seeds
Nature's sweetener and energy booster, dates, are the foundation of our protein bars, serving as a natural sweetener and providing a host of health benefits. Packed with fiber, vitamins, and minerals, dates offer sustained energy release, making them an excellent choice for active individuals. Their natural sweetness adds a delightful flavor to our bars without the need for additional sugars or artificial sweeteners.
Nutrient-rich nuts, such as almonds and peanuts, are not only delicious but also nutritionally dense. These crunchy delights contribute a satisfying texture and provide a valuable source of healthy fats, protein, and essential vitamins and minerals. Almonds and peanuts are known for their heart-healthy properties, supporting cardiovascular well-being and providing satiety, making TIROBAR a fulfilling snack.
I've carefully chosen pea protein as the primary protein source in our bars. Derived from yellow peas, pea protein is a plant-based alternative that delivers all the essential amino acids required for muscle repair and growth. It's easily digestible, hypoallergenic, and promotes a feeling of fullness, making it an excellent choice for individuals with dietary restrictions or those seeking a plant-powered protein boost.
Nature's superfood, hemp seeds, are nutritional powerhouses packed with essential fatty acids, high-quality protein, fiber, and various minerals. These tiny seeds are an excellent plant-based source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which support brain health and promote a healthy inflammatory response. Hemp seeds also add a pleasant nutty taste to our bars while contributing to their nutritional profile.
The non-negotiables were that every bar had to have familiar ingredients with unique benefits, 15+ grams of protein, and zero added sugar. I decided to go with ingredients that were gluten free, dairy free, and vegan. I was not willing to put any artificial flavors or natural flavors into the bar. The flavor was to come from the ingredients themselves because real food tastes great!

I take a lot of pride in the taste of our bars, which comes from the real ingredients we use, without the need for artificial flavorings. Across all 3 flavors combine there are only 8 ingredients. Let's take a look at our three delicious flavors:
