How does NuGo ensure our products are Gluten Free?

The FDA standard for labeling a product gluten free is testing to ensure it contains less than 20ppm of gluten. At NuGo, all bars that say gluten free on the label have been batch tested to below 10ppm, a stronger standard than the FDA requires. We manage allergens strictly during manufacturing, and all shared equipment is heat treated and cleaned before use with our gluten free products in order for us to maintain the highest standard to ensure the products test below 10ppm.

Do your gluten free products contain oats? How are the oats sourced?

We’re proud to make nine gluten free product lines (Protein Cookies, Dark, Slim, Free, Stronger, Organic, Perfect Cookies, Egg White Protein and our Family Original NuGo line). The only gluten free product lines that contain oats are NuGo Protein Cookies, NuGo Organic and NuGo Family Original. We source certified gluten free oats and oat flour, never mechanically separated oats. Additionally, all of our gluten free products are certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO).  

Can you provide coupons or free samples?

When we are sampling our bars through retail chains, we post information on our community section, Facebook page or Twitter feed. If you are interested in receiving discounts or coupons, please subscribe to our newsletter!  

Do I need to order a whole box? Can’t I just try one?

We offer sample packs for customers who are interested in trying our products. Our online sample packs cost between $6-$10 and can be found on our Sample Pack page!  

How much does shipping cost?

When ordering online within the continental US, packages are shipped UPS or FedEx Ground. Shipping is a flat rate of $5.95. For orders over $50, shipping is free! If another shipping option is needed, please call 1-888-421-2032 for pricing. 

When should I expect my package?

Because we ship UPS and Fedex, we have to say 7 to 10 days. We have two shipping points in the US, so it usually comes much sooner.

Should I keep NuGo bars in the refrigerator to keep them fresh?

No, NuGo bars and cookies are happiest at room temperature. You can store them in a cool, dry area.Once a package leaves our fulfillment center, you must reach out directly to the shipping carrier selected during checkout to resolve delivery issues. You should have your tracking number ready when reaching out to the shipping carrier.

We do not ship packages using space-available mail. If you would like to have an order shipped to an FPO/APO, please call us at 1-888-421-2032.  

Why does my chocolate have a white tint?

Most commonly, this is “bloomed” chocolate. Chocolate bloom occurs when real chocolate has been exposed to heat. As it melts, the cocoa butter separates from the chocolate liquids and rises to the top – resulting in a white shade or film on the chocolate. Fortunately, blooming does not affect the healthy benefits of the chocolate and is perfectly fine to eat. 

Are NuGo Products Non-GMO?

GMOs are everywhere, but we take pride in our work with the Non-GMO Project to verify the ingredients that go into our bars. Most NuGo bars and cookies use Non-GMO ingredients and many of them are verified by the Non-GMO Project. All of our products that are Non-GMO will be clearly labeled on the product and on the product page.  

What are the natural flavors listed on your wrappers?

Our natural flavors are a proprietary blend of natural ingredients developed to enhance the flavors of our products. These ingredients can be extracted, distilled or otherwise derived from plants, herbs or fruit ingredients. There are no artificial, synthetic or GMO preservatives or MSG present in these flavors.  

How are Net Carbs calculated?

The calculation for Net Carbs is Total Carbs – Dietary Fiber – Glycerin = Net Carbs. This is a common way to calculate net carbs. Dietary Fiber does not impact your blood sugar level, while Vegetable Glycerin has a negligible effect on blood sugar. In addition, our NuGo Slim bars have a tested low glycemic index of 24.  

What is Allulose?

Allulose is a natural sweetener found naturally in small quantities in things like maple syrup, figs and raisins. It tastes like sugar and has the same texture and mouthfeel as sugar, but its impact on the body is entirely different. Allulose has virtually no impact on blood sugar and insulin because humans lack the enzymes needed to break it down. It also contains 1/10th the calories of regular table sugar. Allulose is truly a breakthrough ingredient!  

What is the Glycemic Index and why does it matter to me?

The glycemic index (GI) is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100 according to how they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Foods with a high GI are those which are rapidly digested and result in blood sugar spikes. Low-GI foods, with slow digestion and absorption, produce gradual levels for blood sugar and insulin, and have proven benefits for health. Low GI diets have been shown to improve both glucose and lipid levels in people with diabetes (type 1 and type 2). They have benefits for weight control because they help control appetite and delay hunger. Low GI diets may reduce insulin levels and insulin resistance.  

What is Chocolate Liquor? Is it an alcohol?

Chocolate liquor is the ground up center (nib) of the cocoa bean (otherwise known as unsweetened chocolate) in a smooth, liquid state. It contains no alcohol.  

Are the egg whites in your Egg White Protein Bars cooked?

The egg whites we use are not raw. Our egg whites go through a high heat pasteurization process to ensure they’re safe to eat.
