Is SimplyProtein gluten-free?
Yes. All SimplyProtein snacks are gluten-free and are manufactured in a gluten-free environment to prevent cross-contamination. Strict manufacturing practices are followed and all products are carefully screened. At ‹5ppm of gluten, delicious SimplyProtein snacks are both safe for their celiac consumers, as well as an excellent snack option. It should be noted that the facility which produces SimplyProtein snacks also manufactures oats. Oats are naturally gluten-free, but may be subject to cross-contamination if grown in a field that at some point grew other gluten containing grains. Rest assured, the oats used in the facility producing SimplyProtein snacks are tested for gluten before and after each usage.
Are SimplyProtein snacks suitable for vegetarians and vegans?
Yes! SimplyProtein Bars, SimplyProtein Nut&Fruit Bars, SimplyVeggie Savoury Bars, SimplyProtein Kids Bars, SimplyWellness Easy-to-Digest Bars and SimplyProtein Chips are vegan. SimplyProtein Whey Bars and SimplyProtein Crunch are vegetarian.
Do all SimplyProtein products contain nuts?
No, not all of SimplyProtein snacks contain nuts. SimplyProtein Kids Bars are certified peanut free. However, the facility used to manufacture the other SimplyProtein snacks is not nut-free, so a nut-free product cannot be guaranteed.
Are SimplyProtein snacks kosher?
All SimplyProtein snacks are certified kosher; however different products have different certifying bodies:
SimplyProtein Bar, SimplyProtein Nut & Fruit and SimplyVeggie Savoury Bars are all certified by Orthodox Union (OU), the world's largest and most widely recognized kosher certification agency. These bars are designated kosher dairy (OU-D) to reflect that they will sometimes be produced on equipment that is also used to make dairy products. However, it is important to note that these specific products are still pareve, vegan and lactose-free (i.e. do not contain dairy or any animal ingredients).
SimplyProtein Chips are certified kosher-pareve by United Mehadrin Kosher (UMKosher).
SimplyProtein Kids bars are kosher-dairy, certified by MK (Jewish community council of Montreal), a popular kosher certifier in Canada. Although the ingredients are pareve, vegan and lactose-free (i.e. do not contain dairy or any animal ingredients), the bars are produced on equipment that is also used to make dairy product.
SimplyProtein WheyBars** are kosher-dairy, certified by MK (Jewish community council of Montreal), a popular kosher certifier in Canada. Simply Protein Whey bars are made with whey crisps (dairy based), which would not be suitable to eat within a specific time frame before/after eating a food designated as kosher meat for those that follow kosher dietary laws. ** NOTE: this applies to Chocolate Mint, Apple Cinnamon and Coconut. Banana Butterscotch bar is certified Kosher Dairy by Orthodox Union (OU-D symbol), NOT by MK.
SimplyProtein Crunch, SimplyProtein Decadent and SimplyProtein WheyBars (ONLY Banana Butterscotch) is certified kosher-dairy by Orthodox Union (OU-D symbol), the world's largest and most widely recognized kosher certification agency. Simply Protein Crunch is made with whey crisps (dairy based), which would not be suitable to eat within a specific time frame before/after eating a food designated as kosher meat for those that follow kosher dietary laws.

Are SimplyProtein snacks suitable for children?
The SimplyProtein Kids Bar is an excellent low sugar, wholesome snack for children. However, due to the large amount of protein in other SimplyProtein snacks, it is best to give children under the age of 10 only half a serving at one time.
Are SimplyProtein bars suitable for those with IBS/IBD symptoms?
SimplyProtein was initially created for people with dietary limitations such as Chron's, Colitis and IBS. Today SimplyProtein bars are enjoyed by everyone and SimplyProtein works hard to ensure every ingredient is natural, easy-to-digest and nutritious.

I purchased a bar that was more crumbly than other bars.
Crumbliness is a feature SimplyProtein is consistently working to improve and avoid, however, sometimes there are the few bars from a batch that may be more prone to crumbling. It is best to store or keep the bars in a cold environment, as that can contribute to crumbliness.
About Wellness Foods
Wellness Foods is a small Canadian, female owned and managed company that was started in 2002 by Cathy Richards, Founder and CEO (Chief Enthusiasm Officer), and has been "an overnight success" in just over 10 years! Cathy created the Simply Bar because she couldn't find a filling and nutritious snack that didn't upset her stomach. Diagnosed with Crohn's disease since she was twelve, Cathy struggled to find a satisfying snack. "Our mission is to make healthy snacks for busy people," says Cathy.
"We grew from one bar to a whole range of great tasting, low sugar snacks that help you stay fuller longer."
"We have the most protein for the least calories compared with other leading natural food snacks. All of our SimplyProtein products are high protein, low sugar, gluten free and they contain no artificial sugars."
Wellness Foods continues to strive to reduce its ecological footprint as much as possible. They have simple rules that continue to ensure their office is as environmentally friendly as possible.
Printing is done only when absolutely necessary, so that they have minimum paper waste. All printer paper is re-used over and over as makeshift notebooks, scrap paper, and drawing paper until it is recycled.
They maintain a recycling bin, scrap paper bin, and compost bin, to reduce the amount of garbage they throw out.
Within their office, they also do not use any disposable cups, plates, bowls, or utensils. Instead they have actual kitchenware that is washed and reused like a household kitchen.
Employees are also reminded to turn off lights and computers when they are not being used to minimize their electrical consumption.
At Wellness Foods they are extremely proud of their outstanding ingredient selection. They source and purchase only natural non-GMO ingredients. This fact not only demonstrates the quality of their products, but also shows their concern for the environmental impact of the ingredients within their bars.
The SimplyProtein Bar box is made from 100% recycled paper fibers with a minimum of 35% post-consumer content.
They also reuse all boxes and packing materials in which items are delivered to their office for packing up their outbound shipments.
