Due to possible cross-contact, the chips they use may contain trace amounts of dairy or soy from other chips made at the facility; thus they cannot claim these products as Dairy Free, Soy Free or Vegan.

No. Larabar only contains the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients inherent in the simple, natural ingredients they use – the way nature created them.
What is the shelf life of a Larabar?
The shelf life for each bar is 12 months. They use a multi-layer package that keeps out UV light which, in turn, maintains freshness without the use of preservatives.

How much fruit does a Larabar provide?
Each Larabar flavor offers at least a ¼ cup of fruit. Tropical Fruit Tart, Apple Pie, and Cherry Pie each offer a ½ cup of fruit in each full-size bar.
Why doesn't the packaging for the chocolate chip varieties feature the dairy free, soy free, or vegan claims?
Though the vast majority of chocolate chips in the world are made with dairy, soy or both, they specifically asked their supplier to provide us with chocolate chips that are Vegan (containing no dairy). While no dairy or soy is used to make their chocolate chips, they are made on a line that also produces chocolate chips made with dairy and soy. Due to possible cross contact between types of chocolate chips made at the facility, the chips they use may contain trace amounts of dairy or soy from those other chips, thus they cannot claim these chocolate chip flavors are Dairy Free, Soy Free or Vegan.
