A Deep Dive: Whoa Dough's Ingredients
When we tell people our bars are gluten free, soy free, egg free, dairy free, vegan,– we often get asked what exactly is IN our bars. We strive to be as transparent as possible when it comes to our ingredients. Each of our bars are composed of a whole grain oat flour and chickpea flour base, with allulose and brown sugar to sweeten, and different flavor profiles to make each bar unique. Each ingredient serves a greater purpose and is there for a reason; we do not use unnecessary additives in our bars, as our goal is to keep our product as clean and nutrient dense as possible. If you would like to know more about our ingredients and their purpose & benefits, keep reading for a breakdown of our most popular Whoa Dough flavor, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
GF Whole Grain Oat Flour & Chickpea Flour/ Chickpea Protein
The majority of our bar consists of a base of whole grain oat and chickpea flour. These flours are unrefined, and rich in vitamins and minerals. Not to mention, they are high in dietary fiber and add a hint of natural protein to the bars as well. Additionally, our flour blend affects blood sugar far less than typical wheat flour
Allulose, Brown Sugar, & Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
The sweeteners we use in our bars are top tier. We do not use processed sweeteners, and instead use sweeteners that are derived directly from plants. Brown sugar contains certain minerals not found in table sugar, and is much lower in calories. Allulose does not affect your blood sugar or insulin levels, as it is not converted to glucose. We also use semi-sweet chocolate chips in our bars, which are made of unsweetened chocolate and cocoa butter. Cocoa butter adds a boost of antioxidants and vitamin E.
Did you know that palm oil is rich in antioxidants and can help reduce your risk of heart disease? It also contributes to better brain health, and can even improve vision. We ensure our palm oil is sourced sustainably and contributes only beneficially to our bars.
Soluble Tapioca Fiber
Tapioca fiber is known to reduce inflammation and improve gastrointestinal health. It is also known to help lower cholesterol and fight harmful bacteria within the gut.
Natural Flavors and Sea Salt
Last but not least we have natural flavors and sea salt to add additional flavor to the bar. Our natural flavors are made from plant sources, and provide no harmful chemicals to the bar. Just like sea salt, it is merely a way to boost the flavor profile and create an even tastier treat for you to enjoy.
Now that you are more familiar with what exactly is in our bars, we hope you can take deeper pleasure in consuming our product. You know what you are getting when you eat a Whoa Dough bar, and we will continue to remain nothing but transparent about our ingredients.
