What is Unfired Fare™?
Unfired fare™ is our way of letting you know Simple Squares are never cooked or baked. But why is this important? Foods that are not cooked or baked, also known as ‘raw’, naturally contain beneficial vitamins and minerals. When foods are heated above a certain temperature, these essential nutrients may be destroyed. As there are currently no FDA guidelines surrounding the definition of raw foods, we chose not to use the term ‘raw’ on our packaging.
How do we differ from other snack and energy bars?
Simple Squares are different than other snack bars because of our belief that less is more. We do not use highly processed syrups (think organic brown rice or agave), fillers or preservatives for a quick fix. We simply use organic, easy to read ingredients that can be picked directly from nature. We don’t claim to be an energy bar, a lifestyle bar, or a protein bar – we do it all – but we keep it simple. Because great tasting food should be just that
What’s the significance behind our herbs?
We believe that you are what you eat, so each herb and spice chosen for our Squares contains natural, beneficial health properties.
For example, recent research links inflammation in the human body to disease. We chose cinnamon and cloves for our Cinna-Clove Square as cinnamon naturally contains anti-inflammatory properties and cloves aid digestion. Other naturally occurring properties of our herbs and spices:
Coffee Beans – filled with anti-oxidants.
Ginger – improves the absorption of nutrients in the body
Rosemary – natural bacteria fighter
Sage – reduces blood sugar levels
Are all Simple Squares® Gluten-Free?
Yes. Each Square is not only free of gluten, but also free of wheat, dairy, corn, soy and refined sugars. Our nut and honey Squares are also kosher, organic and made with unfired fare™ thus ensuring our Squares’ power-packed nutrients are never compromised.
What are whole food ingredients?
Whole food ingredients are those that are processed and refined as little as possible before being consumed - and just what you will find in Simple Squares. Our 5 simple ingredients are put together, in a bowl and gently mixed to give you pure, wholesome goodness. Deliciousness doesn’t get any easier than this.
