Receiving the seal of approval from the Orthodox Union allows Nature’s Bakery to provide our community with high quality products. Our Fig Bars are manufactured on Kosher equipment in an effort to accommodate various lifestyles and diets that require these standards. Further, the hygienic qualities and non-allergenic benefits of being certified Kosher is important to the Nature’s Bakery team.
What is a GMO?
A GMO, or genetically modified organism, is a plant, animal, microorganism or other organism whose genetic makeup has been modified in a laboratory using genetic engineering or transgenic technology. This creates combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and virus genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods. Nature’s Bakery is a proud supporter of the Non-GMO Project. Nature’s Bakery’s entire product line proudly bears the “Non-GMO Project Verified” insignia.
Non-GMO Project Verified
Although it is not required in the United States to label whether your product contains genetically modified organisms (GMO), we have made it our responsibility to take the appropriate steps to ensure that all Nature’s Bakery products are verified “Non-GMO” by an accredited third-party organization called the Non-GMO Project.
Vegan is defined as containing no animal or animal by-products. This means Nature’s Bakery snack bars (aside from Honey & Oat) do not contain or use products derived from animals. View the standards for Vegan certification at: www.vegan.org.
Gluten Free Certified made with Ancient Grains
Nature’s Bakery Gluten Free Fig Bars are made with a special blend of Ancient Grains – amaranth, sorghum and teff. These ancient grains are loaded with trace vitamins, protein, and a range of health benefits. Our Gluten Free Fig Bars are manufactured in a Gluten Free Certified Facility on fully cleaned, sanitized, and validated equipment. Our finished products are tested through a method that verifies gluten is not present. Please note that the oats used within these bars are also certified Gluten Free.

Simplified with you in mind
Contains 0g Trans Fats per Serving
Nature’s Bakery products proudly contain 0g trans fats. Trans fats are created when manufacturers convert liquid oils into solid fats, a process known as hydrogenation. Trans fats result from the hydrogenation of vegetable oils. Consuming trans fats can increase cholesterol in the body, which increases the risk factor for coronary heart disease among other conditions.
Nature’s Bakery products are proudly Cholesterol Free. It is important to limit cholesterol intake because when combined with other substances, cholesterol can build up in the inner walls of arteries and form a thick, hard deposit that narrows the arteries. High cholesterol is one of the major controllable health risk factors. It is recommended to watch the foods that you eat, especially those with saturated fat and trans fat, which can raise your cholesterol levels.
People with soy allergies or sensitivities can enjoy Nature’s Bakery products as a snack option. Our Fig Bars currently do not contain any soy or soy bi-product ingredients.
Many people are lactose intolerant and therefore cannot break down lactose, the sugar found in milk and other dairy products. Although living a dairy free life may be a medical or personal choice, Nature’s Bakery abstains from the use of dairy products in our Fig Bars. This allows us to make our products more accessible to larger communities with specialty or restricted diets.
No High Fructose Corn Syrup
High-fructose corn syrup is a common sweetener in food and drinks. Too much added sugar of all kinds can contribute to unwanted calories that are linked to health problems such as weight gain and type 2 diabetes. The best way to avoid these dangers? Focus on a balanced, wholesome diet and be mindful of sugar intake.
