You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers. And if we don’t have your answer below, feel free to reach out. We love chatting with other Meatbar enthusiasts.
How is it made?
Picture the perfect pasture where cows are feeding on nothing but grass. No drugs, no antibiotics, no hormones, just pure nature-loving grass.
Once their Meatbar destiny is fulfilled, the bars are then carefully seasoned with the perfect blend of herbs and spices and slow-smoked in hickory to lock in that mouth-watering flavour. Salivating yet?
What are the benefits of grass-fed meat?
Science time: A cow’s stomach is pH-neutral, making it the perfect environment for digesting grass. When a cow is fed a diet rich in grass and free of drugs and hormones, they get to live their next life as an incredibly fulfilling Meatbar – rich in heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, CLA and antioxidant vitamins.
What’s the difference between Meatbar and jerky?
Pretty much everything. Jerky gets stripped of natural fats, then it gets dried, and then salt is added to prevent bacteria from forming. Meatbar, on the other hand, is made with 100% grass-fed beef made from high-quality, top round cuts. It hasn’t been stripped of a darn thing, which is where all the taste comes from.
It’s also as much as 35% lower in sodium than jerky. 35%! On top of that you’ll usually find artificial flavours and preservatives lurking around that jerky. Meatbar doesn’t take too kindly to those.
How does Meatbar differ from other protein bars?
Meatbar is kind of in a league all on its own. It’s here to shake up how you get your protein fix, but it’s definitely no jerky. Just all-natural, 100% grass-fed beef bar that’s super high in protein with no artificial preservatives or flavours. No bigs.
Why are Meatbars not considered organic?
Well, it’s simple. In order to be certified organic, the cows need to eat organic feed. But just because they aren’t fed organic feed, it doesn’t change our high standards. Our cows aren’t even allowed near antibiotics or added hormones. They’re fed grass and vegetarian feed and nothing but.
Are Meatbars gluten-free?
They sure are. Not one ingredient in our simple list contains anything resembling gluten in the least.
Who should eat Meatbars?
Tough question: Do you like meat? If you answered yes, then YOU! It’s that simple.
Are Meatbars paleo?
Our Original Beef and Sweet & Savoury bars are paleo. Our Sriracha Beef Bacon bar is not. The Sriracha Beef Bacon contains turbinado sugar that disqualifies it from paleo. But it doesn’t disqualify it from tasting amazing.
What is lactic acid and why is it in Meatbar?
Science time again: Lactic acid is a natural ingredient used to cure meat. Add to that a starter culture (which is made from vegetables), and voilà! A high-quality, shelf-stable bar minus the harsh preservatives. What a world.
Is there MSG in Meatbar?
Zip. Zero. Zilch.
Do you have to refrigerate bar after opening?
Yes. The only time you’ll want to put Meatbar in the fridge is if you opened one up and just can’t seem to finish it (we dare you to try).
How can Meatbar stay fresh for up a year?
Meatbar is sealed in a vacuum-pack pouch where no air can get to it until you release the deliciousness. We also use cultured celery powder, a natural preservative. The team of these two power preservers help keep Meatbar fresh for up to one whole year.
What is cultured celery powder and why is it in Meatbar?
Cultured celery powder is a natural concentrate prepared from fresh celery that’s used as a food preservative in meat products. Instead of adding sodium nitrite to Meatbar (like beef jerky!), we have chosen to keep things au natural by harnessing the preservative power of celery juice.
Does Meatbar have any artificial preservatives or artificial flavours?
Gross. And no. There is not a single unmentionable in Meatbar.
