+ Why are Sprouted Minds Bars stored in refrigerator?
We take pride in using the freshest highest quality raw ingredients that we can source. The combination of these fresh ingredients and the fact that we are the only company adding cold-brewed herbal tea to our bars means that the added moisture shortens the shelf life. The good news is that the Tulsi tea we use adds amazing health benefits, taste, and rehydrates the fruit to give a chewy soft texture unlike any other bar.

We take pride in serving certified organic and certified gluten free bars. Sprouted Minds bars at 95% organic certified by CCOF and we are proudly certified gluten free by GFCO.
+ Are they vegan or vegetarian?
Our bars are all vegetarian. We do use organic bee pollen in our bars for its amazing health benefits and that is the only ingredient which keeps us from being a vegan product.
