About NuGo Nutrition

WE COULD SAY THE GENESIS OF NUGO (NUTRITION TO GO) BARS CAME TO US IN A BRILLIANTLY CREATIVE AND INSPIRED MOMENT. BUT THE TRUTH IS MUCH DIFFERENT. IT TOOK LOTS OF HARD WORK AND DEDICATED PEOPLE TO DEVELOP, MANUFACTURE AND DISTRIBUTE THE BEST TASTING NUTRITION BARS ON THE MARKET. NOW THE IDEA HAD A BALANCED PLAN: MARKET AN AWESOMELY DELICIOUS FAMILY NUTRITION BAR. WITH A SMALL STAFF BUT DEVOTED NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES, THE IDEA AND THE MARKETING PLAN EXPLODED. SOON, WITH THE SUPPORT OF INVESTORS AND A VERY WISE BUSINESS SAGE, THE START UP COMPANY WAS AT TRADE SHOWS AND ON SHELVES. THE PHONES WERE RINGING AND PEOPLE WANTED NUGO BARS.

    • High Protein
    • Low Fat

    NuGo makes delicious and health snacks that meet everyone’s dietary needs. These bars taste better than other nutritional foods because of NuGo's commitment to using the most wholesome ingredients and baking processes possible. NuGo believes that pure, natural ingredients are both better for you and better tasting. From their very first bar to the latest, they’ve maintained a commitment to creating great snacks without taking shortcuts. Each of these bars is full of the protein and whole grains that every diet needs.

    In response to consumers’ diverse lifestyles, NuGo now has created bars to meet everybody’s interest: Family, Organic, Dark Chocolate, Organic, Raw, and Low Carb. In keeping with NuGo’s core principles, they don’t use hydrogenated oils, trans fats, or vegetable fat compounds in their bars. That means bars contain brown rice, soy, whole grains, and real dark chocolate. NuGo then finishes the bars by baking all of these ingredients together, creating a texture that’s crisp and delicious.

    For NuGo, part of making snacks that are healthy and delicious is educating customers about chocolate. People are surprised to find that chocolate is a health food. Pure dark chocolate is good for your health, so it has a place in NuGo bars. Not all dark chocolate is healthy, though, because other companies often add vegetable oil to keep it from melting when shipped. NuGo doesn’t cut corners, so their chocolate is unadulterated. That’s also the secret to the superior taste of NuGo bars: they don’t add vegetable fat to our chocolate, so there’s no waxy taste or crumbly texture. NuGo now offers scrumptious options for everyone, with flavors that are kosher, low-glycemic, OU pareve, vegan, USDA certified organic, fruit & fiber, sugar-free, gluten, soy, & dairy free, and 100% natural.

    The Truth About Real Chocolate
    NuGo is the only company to make real Dark Chocolate coated protein bars for many lifestyles.  Real Dark Chocolate is what you’ll find coating NuGo Dark, NuGO Organic, NuGO Free, and NuGO Slim protein bars. Unlike other protein bar manufacturers, NuGo never uses waxy vegetable fats (palm oil) in place of real, antioxidant-rich dark chocolate.

    The FDA has not set a standard of identity for dark chocolate, allowing the consumer to be misled that they are eating dark chocolate while consuming fake chocolate flavored palm oil (saturated fat). Without a standard of identity, companies can call a product dark chocolate on the front of a package without using real dark chocolate ingredients!

    Taste and Health Benefits of Real Chocolate

    NuGo’s dark chocolate comes only from cocoa beans (cocoa butter and non-fat cocoa solids) and is a superfood.  For people with cholesterol levels within a normal range, real Dark Chocolate can help maintain good cholesterol (HDL). The vegetable fat in fake chocolate is an unhealthy saturated fat that can raise bad cholesterol (LDL) above normal ranges.

    The fake chocolate coated snacks substitute vegetable fat, usually palm oil, for cocoa butter, which raises the melting temperature above body temperature, thus the chocolate doesn’t melt in your mouth creating a waxy texture and an overly sweet taste. Real dark chocolate homogenously melts at 89 – 93 degrees, below body temperature, exploding the dark chocolate flavor as it melts.  That’s why NuGo Dark chocolate coated protein snacks are so tasty compared to the competition.

    Cocoa butter, the natural source of fat in real Dark Chocolate, is responsible for its smooth, creamy texture. Cocoa butter does not counteract the cholesterol lowering benefits of the cocoa bean – it is a neutral fat. The natural fat in chocolate, cocoa butter, is comprised of equal amounts of oleic acid (a heart-healthy monounsaturated fat also found in olive oil), stearic and palmitic acids. Research has shown* that stearic acid does not raise LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) as do most saturated fats. Stearic acid is converted in the liver to oleic acid, a heart healthy, monounsaturated fat. Few other fats are this heart-healthy.

    *Stearic acid research

    Why would companies coat their snacks in fake dark chocolate?

    They substitute vegetable fats (usually palm kernel oil) for cocoa butter in order to save money. Real dark chocolate must be tempered, and tempering takes time, costs money, and requires expertise. Making and transporting real Dark Chocolate requires the extra costs associated with climate controlled distribution.

    Palm kernel and other vegetable oils raise the melting temperature of chocolate, therefore, they save money by not using climate control trucking. The higher melting temperature creates a waxy consistency and too-sweet taste because the chocolate doesn’t melt in your mouth.

    How does eating snacks coated in fake dark chocolate affect cholesterol?

    Vegetable fats have disadvantages that go beyond flavor. They are unhealthy saturated fats, outweighing the natural benefits of the cocoa bean. This means that replacing the neutral fat cocoa butter with palm kernel oil cancels out the health benefits found in the non-fat cocoa solids.

    For people with cholesterol levels within a normal range, real Dark Chocolate can help maintain good cholesterol (HDL). The vegetable fat in fake chocolate is an unhealthy saturated fat that can raise bad cholesterol (LDL) above normal ranges.

    How can you tell if a snack is made from real Dark Chocolate?

    To date, the FDA has not mandated a standard of identity for real Dark Chocolate. This means companies using alternative vegetable fat coatings instead of real Dark Chocolate can mislead consumers when they label a flavor “dark chocolate,” even though it does not contain the health benefits or taste of real Dark Chocolate.

    If you want to be sure you are eating the best tasting and healthiest chocolate on earth, check your labels! By law, if vegetable fat coatings are used, the ingredients list must state “chocolaty” or “chocolate flavored coating and vegetable oil.” That is the only way you would know it is not real dark chocolate. Sometimes the listing will illegally state dark chocolate coating. If the ingredients include alternative vegetable fats (palm oil, palm kernel oil, cottonseed oil, etc.), then it is not real dark chocolate.

    If it’s a NuGo Dark chocolate coated protein bar, you’ll know it’s made with real Dark Chocolate.

    Real Dark Chocolate. Real Delicious. Real Health Benefits.

      If you have never had this NuGo bar you are truly missing out. These ROCK ! This bar is all about nutrition and wholesome goodness, and yet eating one satisfies my chocolate craving as well as if I've eaten a candy bar. Advertised as gluten free, soy free, dairy free, and vegan. Contains 9 g protein and only 3 g fat with 4 g fiber - an awesome balance of nutrition. Some nutrition bars taste chalky, dense, or gummy. This bar has a hint of rice krispie treat taste with chocolate all over and there is nothing healthy tasting about it - pure delight! These bars make being dairy and gluten free easy :)

      I didn't think this was that great. It is healthier than a candy bar, but with 9g protein and 23 usable carbs, still pretty high carb. I like that it uses agave and chicory, not malitol. But the taste isn't great. I have celiac and eat gluten-free products all the time. I also try to eat a low carb, high protein diet, so I'm aware of the limitations of gluten-free and low carb...the "crisps" are stale, and even oddly soggy. The flavor is bland and a little chemical-y--it was better than the carrot cake, but still not very good. For 23 grams of carbs, not a keeper.

      The first bite was "yes some chocolate", but even a GF veteran would turn their nose up at this once it hit your stomach. Then you wonder how long it would be before this passes. While chewing it became thick and stuck to my teeth. Sorry guys but its a no go.........

      I bought four of these in my last order (that arrived a week ago). Usually when I buy bars they last forever. I just keep one in my purse to have something gluten free with me. However, there's only one of these left and I'm back to order more. I like the dark chocolate and the texture of the bar; it is very satisfying. The center of the bar is sort of like crisped rice treats (in fact, rice is a main ingredient). I've had some other brands that tasted chalky or dry, this one doesn't. 10g of protein per bar, 14 g sugar, 200 cal, 5 g fat.
