FAQ

  • Are Shift Bars Gluten-free? Most definitely! Our bars are Gluten-free and always will be.
  • Are Shift Bars Vegan? Yes, they are the perfect vegan snack. While we support whatever way of eating is best for you, we’re not big fans of dairy so we left it (and eggs) out.
  • Are Shift Bars Paleo-friendly? Yes Shift Bars are Paleo-friendly because our pea protein does not contain gluten and lecthins antinutrients. But if you're trying to avoid legumes this isn't the bar for you. 
  • What about Keto-friendly? Yes, Shift Bars are Keto-friendly. We know some people on the keto diet measure net carbs by subtracting fiber and sugar alcohols from the total carb amount while others only subtract the fiber and half the sugar alcohols. Our bars have 24 total carbs, 17 grams of fiber, and 3 grams of sugar alcohols (from organic erithrytol). Depending on which formula you use, they have either 4 or 5.5 net carbs each. So whether you stay in ketosis depends on how many net carbs you allow yourself daily and how many you've already eaten before you chow down on a Shift Bar. But they bars are keto-friendly...and delicious. 
  • Are Shift Bars safe for kids? Yes! Kids who learn healthy eating habits young are more likely to remain healthy eaters into adulthood. And you won’t have to worry about any sugar crashes with our bars - just delicious, sustained energy for you and the kiddies.
  • Do Shift Bars contain nuts? Yes. Currently all our bars contain organic almonds and/or organic cashews. We’re working on a nut-free version and it will be the next flavor we launch, so nut-free peeps, hold tight - we’re working on it!
  • How do you sweeten Shift Bars? We took years developing our proprietary blend of organic, zero-glycemic sweeteners in Shift Bars. That way, we keep the sugar way low (and the glycemic index), but there are no weird aftertastes. You’ll be shocked that they only have 1 gram of sugar after you taste them!
  • Are Shift Bars safe for diabetics? Absolutely. One of the main reasons our founder created Shift Bars was to provide a delicious, organic gluten free snack for those who have blood sugar challenges. With only 1 gram of sugar and 15 grams of fiber, Shift Bars are the perfect healthy snack for those of us who are watching our sugar intake.
  • Are Shift Bars certified organic? Yes, and they always will be.
  • Are Shift Bars certified non-GMO? Ditto. We don’t need no stinkin’ Frankenfoods in our bars!
  • I love your bars but I’m concerned with the amount of plastic in the environment. We hear you! While the technology is still a bit far off to have compostable packaging while keeping our bars affordable, that’s where we’re heading. In the meantime, you can assuage your plastic guilt by buying one of our T-shirts, made from recycled plastic bottles.
  • How much protein do Shift Bars have? 10 grams per bar. While they may not be a meal replacement for everyone, most of our feedback tells us that they satisfy for at least 2-3 hours.
  • I love me some Shift Bars. Can I be an affiliate? We’re working on our affiliate program so stay tuned. And be sure to send an email to us partnerships@shiftbars.com so we can put you on the list of future affiliates.
  • These bars taste too good, they can’t possibly have only 1 gram of sugar! We know what you mean. But trust us - we wouldn’t lie to you.
  • When will Shift Bars be available in stores in my area? Currently, Shift Bars are only available in select stores in Southern California.

  • When will the Raspberry Rhapsody and Almond Butter Blessing flavors be available? The short answer is as soon as humanly possible. The longer answer is when we secure additional funding to expand our line. The bars are already created and ready to go, we just need a bit more cash to produce them. If you or someone you know is interested in learning more, please contact us at whatsup@shiftbars.com.
  • I’m an influencer and would love to feature Shift Bars. Awesome and thank you! Please contact partnerships@shiftbars.com for more details.
  • Why did we choose these ingredients? The inspiration behind Shift Bars was to create an energy bar made from whole food, organic ingredients with as little sugar as possible. So we used organic nuts and seeds like almonds and chia, organic flavors like cacao, cinnamon, and vanilla, and organic pea protein. Then we spent years creating a proprietary blend of zero-glycemic sweeteners so the bars would taste fabulous without any weird aftertaste. Faced with many opportunities to use lower quality ingredients to speed up the process and cost us less, we stuck to our guns to create the best tasting, highest quality bars we could. You’ll love the result!
  • Are these bars suitable for meal replacement? It depends on how big your meals usually are and how often you eat during the day. With 10 grams of protein and 16 grams of fiber per bar, they’ll definitely fill you up for 2-3 hours and maybe longer. Try one and test if for yourself!
  • How many Shift Bars can I eat in a day? These are not your average energy bar filled with empty calories, chemical-based ingredients, or tons of sugar - they are nutritiously dense, made with ingredients like organic nuts and seeds, and loaded with fiber. We suggest testing out how many a day feels best for your body - try 1 or 2 and go from there. We really encourage eating a balanced diet full of a variety of fresh foods, though, so while we’d love to say there’s no limit, we think it best to use Shift Bars as a great addition to your overall diet and not a replacement for it.
