The revolutionary protein found in B.O.S.S. Bars® provides you with a complete source of vegan protein that contains all 20 amino acids with amounts in excess of Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) requirements. Vertical fermentation tanks reduce the need for land, dramatically reducing the carbon footprint usually needed to create protein. The process uses way less water and energy, and reduces carbon dioxide production, making the protein found in B.O.S.S. Bars® as good for the environment as it is for your body. Its neutral flavor means that we don’t have to use a bunch of sugar or artifical flavoring to cover up the taste. In fact, our bars contain no added sugar, and very low amounts of naturally occurring sugar from our superfruits. And it’s tested for heavy metals, so you don’t have to worry about lurking dangers (unlike many protein powders on the market – there’s a reason some high protein bars are so inexpensive).
Mushroom mycelia are very sustainable source of material, in addition to being clean , non GMO and extremely diverse in their abilities. They have a natural natural ability to ferment.
The brown rice and peas are fermented by Shiitake mushroom mycelium roots, creating a nutritionally superior, highly functional, and sustainable protein source. Healthy bacteria breaks the plant-based protein down into smaller particles that are easier and faster to digest (also known as higher bio-availability). This process also removes undesirable properties from the brown rice and peas (see below).
But I follow the Paleo diet…
Do you know why the Paleo diet calls for no grains or legumes? Because they contain antinutrients, which are just what the name sounds like: compounds plants make that interfere with the absorption of nutrients by the human body, or the functioning of nutrients in the human body. We don’t want that!
The beauty of our shiitake fermented brown rice and pea protein is that the fermentation process is a powerful natural tool to break down these antinutrients, so our protein ingredient is not harmful to your body. We would never do anything to interfere with nutrition because nutrition is the cornerstone of what we are doing here at B.O.S.S. Food Co®!
