Bear Tracks Organic Protein Bars were created after Paul Blann was preparing for a 21 day primitive camping trip. His goal was to find food to take that was not only light but healthy, nutritious and would provide everything needed for the 21 days in the woods. Dismayed at what was available locally, even in the Co-Ops and Natural Food stores, He continued the search on line and couldn’t find a complete bar that provided a balance of Fats/Protein/Carbs and nutrition his body would need, not only to survive but for exercise support. Most bars he found in local markets were also not certified USDA organic. This means that even if they are certified organic they can contain up to 30% non-organic chemically processed ingredients.
After doing extensive research as well as getting input from a top survivalist, nutritionists and athletes, Paul created a Bar he felt was vital for those who shared his goal: an organically certified, soy free , gluten free and GMO free, DELICIOUS balanced bar. After a full year of development, testing and searching for the perfect ingredients, BEAR TRACKS ORGANIC PROTEIN BARS were born and certified USDA Organic in May of 2013.

Busting a Myth:
Colorado State University states in their article on Sports nutrition that
“Fat also provides body fuel. For moderate exercise, about half of the total energy expenditure is derived from free fatty acid metabolism. If the event lasts more than an hour, the body may use mostly fats for energy. …Consumption of fat should not fall below 15 percent of total energy intake because it may limit performance. Athletes who are under pressures to achieve or maintain a low body weight are susceptible to using fat restriction and should be told that this will hinder their performance.” (1)
What most people do not understand is that once the body burns up the carbs after 30-60 minutes of exercise, it turns to burning muscle if there is not an adequate supply of fat. This is why so many people then have to rely on a great amount of protein to rebuild their muscles after exercise. So as stated above people with low body fat will burn muscle for energy and do more harm.
The Bear Tracks Bars bags are also certified biodegradable and compostable and will light with flint and steel even when pulled out of water.
The Bars are perfect for Backpackers, Survivalist, Cyclist, Campers, Hunters, Runners, Swimmers, Kayakers, and anyone who is concerned for their health. They are even a perfect snack for kids.
