The Food and Drug Administration has established guidelines for the way products describe their nutritional values, including Fiber content. Look at the nutritional facts panel on the packaged foods you buy and check under Daily Value on the far right column to determine if the food is high or low in Fiber.
20% or more of the Daily Value per serving is “high” or an “excellent source of” Fiber.
10-19% of the Daily Value per serving is a “good source of” Fiber.
5% or less of the Daily Value per serving is considered “low in Fiber”.What is a Dextrin?
A dextrin is a complex carbohydrate which helps provide sustained energy for the body. It is an unmodified and unrefined starch. The source of the dextrins in Gnu Bars is brown rice. A dextrin should not be confused with a "maltodextrin," which is a highly refined form of corn starch that is rapidly metabolized in the human body. Maltodextrins do not provide sustained energy and have little or no nutritional benefit.What is Inulin?

The OU-D symbol on every Gnu Bar certifies that it is a kosher product certified by the Orthodox Union. Because Gnu Foods' bakery also processes dairy products, Gnu Bars carry a "D" after the OU symbol, but the bars themselves are dairy free.Can I eat too many Gnu Bars?
Gnu Foods recommends starting with one bar a day, if your body isn't used to getting the fiber it needs. Gnu Bars are gentle and effective and won’t cause diarrhea. You will experience less strain during bowel movements and more regularity. As with any new food you add to your diet, moderation is key.

The American Heart Association Eating Plan recommends that children older than two get the majority of their calories from complex carbohydrates high in Fiber. They recommend "age plus 5" to set dietary Fiber amounts for young children. For example, a six year old should eat 6 (their age) plus 5 grams of Fiber = 11 grams of Fiber daily. As a child consumes up to 1500 calories daily, he or she can tolerate 25 grams or more of dietary Fiber.
About Gnu Foods
What is Gnu Foods?
Gnu Foods is a small company that makes all natural, great-tasting foods that help address specific nutritional needs and health conditions. It was founded in 2004 with the introduction of their first product, the Gnu Bar, a high fiber bar that promotes regularity and heart health.
What is the company’s philosophy?
Real health makes us feel good inside and out, physically and emotionally. Returning to real health, feeling good the way nature intended—that’s what Gnu Foods is all about.
Gnu Foods is dedicated to creating Food that Works.™ Processed foods tend to have all the “goodness” squeezed out of them and many contain additives which simply aren’t what our bodies were designed for. The result: an obesity epidemic in America, even among our children, as well as soaring rates of heart disease, cancer, and Type 2 diabetes.
Gnu Foods is what your body was made for.
Gun Foods' name was inspired by the African Gnu (pronounced “noo” or “nyoo”).
The Gnu has an ox-like head, the mane of a horse, and the horns of a buffalo. It may look unusual from the outside, but inside, it functions beautifully. Flourishing in the grasslands and plains of Southern and Eastern Africa, the gnu lives in balance with nature.
At Gnu Foods, they create foods that help keep us in natural balance. Their foods are designed with you in mind, made with all natural ingredients every body needs. Since you were their inspiration, they hope you give Gnu Bars a try. And pretty soon, you’ll be feeling like a “gnu” you.
