Liv Foods, Inc., maker of LivBar, organic superfood energy bars, has announced that its products have recently received verification from North America’s most trusted third-party verification for non-GMO food and products, The Non-GMO Project. The certification gives consumers further confidence in the brand’s all-natural and organic claims as well as its commitment to a non-GMO supply chain.
The Non-GMO Project is a nonprofit organization offering rigorous product verification and trustworthy education that empowers people to care for themselves, the planet, and future generations. It is the market leader for GMO avoidance, working to preserve and build the non-GMO food supply.
GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, are organisms whose genetic makeup has been modified in a laboratory. Since their introduction in the 1990s, GMOs have become widespread in the marketplace. Today, it is estimated that 80% of the products on grocery store shelves contain ingredients made from GMOs. GMOs are part of an intensive, industrial-style agriculture system that devastates local ecosystems and species biodiversity and threatens farmer sovereignty.
LivBar is a leading USDA certified organic nutrition bar that’s made with superfood and other immunity-supporting ingredients. The brand is famous for its commitment to organic, plant-based, healthy living and sustainability. They are the only brand that packs their products in compostable wrappers. LivBar products are available in all 50 states, including national retailers like Sprouts, Whole Foods, Fresh Thyme, Bristol Farms, Hy-Vee, and Natural Grocers, among many others.
LivBar was founded in 2012 in Salem, Oregon by two nutrition and fitness experts, Jan and Gabe Johansen. When Jan could not find a truly healthy energy bar made from only real foods for her nutrition customers, she created the LivBar recipes. LivBars are crunchy and chewy and come in five delicious superfood flavors: Coffee Maple Cacao, Raspberry Maca, Blueberry Vanilla, Ginger Lemon Turmeric and Lemongrass Cherry Matcha.
