I had the opportunity to sample and review Zego Bars last summer and quickly fell in love with them. The bars contain 10g of protein and not a lot of sugar, making them a great choice for an afternoon snack or to refuel after a tough workout.
Zego just introduced a super-cool new package that includes a QR code to tell you all about the batch that specific bar is from. More info:
“The ZEGO QR code allows consumers to have better control over their food safety,” says ZEGO co-founder Colleen Kavanagh. “For example, knowing a ‘gluten-free’ product’s testing showed less than 2.5 PPM gluten compared to the FDA’s allowed 20 PPM enables very sensitive people to make safer choices. This is even more important for those with peanut or dairy allergies, who may choose to eat foods with allergen disclaimers.”
“Providing real-time data via a QR code not only informs and empowers purchasing choices, it also provides a mechanism for feedback, so consumers can tell manufacturers what matters most to them, and manufacturers can respond,” says Jonathan Shambroom, co-founder of ZEGO. “While sample testing is not a safety guarantee, our rigorous testing, transparency, and direct communication via our packaging will hopefully become the industry standard. We want our customers to enjoy the great taste of ZEGO bars and equally enjoy great peace of mind.”
QR reader apps are available for both Android phones and iPhones in either the Google Play store or the App Store on Apple products. Zego Bars can be found at select retailers and at Amazon.com.
Does a label like this make you more comfortable when choosing a gluten-free product?
