Company

What does No B.S. stand for?

On our adult bars, it stands for No Bullshit. On our kids bars, it stands for No Bad Stuff.
But what does it mean?
No B.S. isn’t an ingredient in our bars. It’s how we do business. It’s how we communicate. It’s how we work with partners. How we source our ingredients.

We’re honest and straightforward—no overblown claims, certifications or gimmicks.

Purchasing

Why did you create RX Nut Butters?

Nut butters are a growing category and we saw an opportunity to bring added high value nutrition and convenience to the space with a product that tastes amazing.

Why does the oil separate?

Oil separation is naturally occurring in all nut butter products.

How should I store these?

Just like our bars, the nut butter should be stored in a cool, dry place. They do not need to be refrigerated.

Is there added sugar?

Vanilla Almond Butter and Peanut Butter do not contain added sugar. Honey Cinnamon Peanut Butter contains honey, which is an added sugar.

Is RX Nut Butter Kosher?

RX Nut Butter is not Kosher certified.

Is RX Nut Butter Vegan?

RX Nut Butters are not vegan due to the egg whites in each product.

Is RX Nut Butter Dairy Free?

RX Nut Butter is dairy free.

Is RX Nut Butter Gluten Free?

RX Nut Butter is gluten free.

Is RX Nut Butter Organic?

At this time, RX Nut Butters are not certified organic. However, they contain no preservatives or additives, and are not treated with pesticides. We work closely with our suppliers and have policies in place to ensure our ingredients are of the highest quality.

How do I use it?

RX Nut Butters are perfect as a snack on their own, or feel free to pair them with your favorite food.

How many servings are in it?

Ingredients & Nutritional Information

Do you use cage-free eggs?

We will be starting the transition to cage-free eggs, which we expect to complete by 2025. If we can beat that timeline, we will. We work with some of the leading farms in the country and are always evaluating the best options.

What are natural flavors?

Our natural flavors are oils, essence and extracts from natural sources, such as spices, fruit, plants or vegetables.

Why do you use natural flavors?

Quality and consistency. When you open an RXBAR, it should taste and smell the same every time, and natural flavors help make that happen.

What else should I know about natural flavors?

  • In order to be used in food, natural flavors must meet strict FDA guidelines and safety criteria.
  • The natural flavors used in RXBARs come from the real ingredients such and do not include propylene glycol, synthetic, artificial or GMO derived ingredients.
  • If our product does contain one of the top 8 allergens, we label it.

Do you list all of your ingredients on the front of the package?

No.
Why not?
  • We put egg whites, dates and nuts on the front of the pack because those are the core ingredients in all of our products: RXBAR, RXBAR Kids, and RX Nut Butters.
  • These ingredients make up the majority of the product (by net weight).
  • They drive the nutritional value of the product and provide a combination of high-quality protein, healthy fat, and fiber.
You can see the full nutrition statement on the back of the package.

But why does the front only feature some ingredients?

It’s the introduction to the product. It’s the first thing your eyes see as you walk by the shelf at a grocery store. This is our way of communicating the value of our product: high-quality, clean ingredients.

Where do I find the Nutritional Facts for RXBARs?

The Nutritional Facts can be found on each product page, or download all of our Nutritional Facts here.

How much protein does each bar contain?

You’ll find 12 grams of protein in every RXBAR. Nuts contribute to the protein count, but the majority of that protein comes from egg whites. As a complete source of protein, egg whites have a high bioavailability, which means it’s easy for your body to absorb.

Are RXBARs vegan?

No. Each bar contains (fully pasteurized) egg whites.

What’s NOT in an RXBAR?

  • No Added Sugar.
  • No Dairy.
  • No Soy.
  • No Gluten.
  • No B.S.

There are also no artificial colors, artificial flavors, preservatives or fillers.

Are your products Non-GMO?

Yes, our ingredients are Non-GMO.
Are you Project Verified?
No.
Why?
Most of our ingredients are inherently Non-GMO, so we don’t think the certification is necessary. There are a ton of certifications that you can pay for, and we’re selective about the ones we pursue. For ingredients that are not inherently non-GMO, like natural flavors, we partner with select suppliers that meet our standards to ensure non-GMO ingredients.

Are RXBARs Kosher certified?

RXBAR flavors are certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union when bearing the OU symbol. We are in the process of updating our packaging to reflect that all RXBAR flavors are OU certified. It will take time before you may see the symbol on all products, however we are working to expedite this process. If you have questions please call us at 312-624-8200.

Do RXBARs contain allergens?

Yes. Eggs, almonds, cashews, peanuts and coconut can be found in RXBARs. Allergens vary by flavor, so always check the nutritional facts before eating an RXBAR and consult your doctor if you have questions.

NOTE: Our bars are manufactured in a facility that also processes eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, milk, soy, and wheat.

How much caffeine does the Coffee Chocolate bar contain?

5 mg of caffeine–that’s no more than a sip of coffee. We use coffee for flavor, not as a boost, so this bar won’t replace your morning cup, which typically contains between 95-200 mg of caffeine.

Are your egg whites cooked?

The egg whites we use are not raw. Our egg whites go through a high heat, time and temperature controlled pasteurization process to ensure they're safe to eat.
