Health Warrior became a leader in the chia seed and health bar categories with the 2011 launch of its popular Chia Bar. Furthering its commitment to produce delicious, nutritious and convenient food products, Health Warrior introduces three new Chia Bar flavors: Coffee, Apple Cinnamon, Banana.
Also available in Coconut, Açai Berry, and Chocolate Peanut Butter flavors, Health Warrior Chia Bars are the only bar on the market with chia seeds as their primary ingredient, company officials say. Pound for pound, chia seeds hold more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon, more fiber than oatmeal, more protein than tofu, more calcium than milk and more magnesium than broccoli. Health Warrior Chia Bars contain only 100 calories per bar (Coconut is the only flavor with 110 calories) and just five or less grams of sugar. They are 100% natural, vegan, dairy-free, and soy-free.
Health Warrior CEO Shane Emmett describes the philosophy that led to the creation of the Chia Bars, “Like most Americans, I look for food that is both delicious and healthy. But usually foods that fit these criteria are not quick and convenient. In the past, when I was pressed for time and hunger struck I would pick up whatever was available—usually some sugar-overloaded charlatan of a bar claiming to be healthy. We created Health Warrior Chia Bars so that you don’t have to compromise. The Chia Bars provide a convenient, healthy and, most importantly, delicious snack packed with one of the most nutritious foods known to man as the main ingredient—chia seeds.”
Dan Gluck and Nick Morris, former NCAA Division 1 athletes, founded Health Warrior after they discovered chia seeds by reading Born to Run, which described how the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico run up to 100 miles without shoes, sustained by the mini but mighty chia seed. Today, chia seeds are gaining popularity, as people around the world discover their nutritional power.
Health Warrior Chia Bars can be found at Whole Foods Markets, Sprouts, Wegmans, Fairway Markets, Earth Fare and hundreds of independent natural food stores nationwide, as well as online at Amazon.
