Do Wave Bars™ contain any GMO ingredients?
No. We source all GMO-free ingredients. As we grow, we will apply for the Non-GMO Project Product Verification Program (PVP).
Are there any common food allergens in Wave Bars?
Our ingredients are free of the most common food allergens. However, the bars are currently manufactured in facility that also produces egg, soy, tree nuts, peanuts, and dairy.
Are dried fruits and veggies nutritious?
We use a combination of freeze dried, drum dried, and air dried fruits and vegetables. To produce these dried ingredients, the majority of water content is removed. Dried fruits retain the majority of their nutrients and nothing is added to them during the drying process. All fruits and vegetables, even fresh fruits and vegetables, will lose some nutrients after they are picked over time. We feel very good about the drying processes and quality of our ingredients and the nutrition of the dried fruits and vegetables in our Wave Bars.

Does eating a Wave Bar substitute getting your daily veggie and fruit servings?
Eating fresh fruits and veggies is always an essential part of a healthful diet. And we feel eating a Wave Bar provides another tool in your kit—and addition not a substitution—toward a daily, nutritious diet that includes a variety of whole foods. There are a lot of food products on the market that are fortified with vitamins and minerals to make the nutritional panel look enticing, but we take pride in our bars because all of the nutrition come directly from our ingredients themselves. Simple and real.
Who is your primary audience for the Wave Bar?
Toddlers to 99 year olds. We designed the product with the taste buds of kids, like ours, from 4-17 years in mind, but we have found that it is enjoyed widely by all ages.
How do you keep the sugar low in the Wave Bar and still taste so good?
We worked extremely hard to keep our sugar level to less than 10 grams. We use no refined sugars and no high fructose corn syrup in our bars. More than 80% of the sugar content comes directly from the dried fruits and vegetables as naturally occurring carbohydrates (the remaining 20% comes from plant based sources such as agave and tapioca syrup).
Where does the fiber in the Wave Bar come from?
All 3 grams of fiber in each Wave bar comes from the actual ingredients: oats, flax seeds, carrots, and date paste contribute to the majority of the fiber. Many products (bars and cereals in particular) use isolated fiber sources such as Inulin to boost the fiber content. Inulin has been shown in some people to create digestive discomfort and symptoms. We are proud that our bars contain a good source of fiber from quality ingredients.
How is the Vitamin A in the Wave Bars so high?
We are proud that each bar provides 50% of your recommended daily value for vitamin A. That’s what you get with the 1/2 serving of veggies provided in one Wave Bar! Vitamin A plays a role in promoting a healthy immune system, supporting healthy eye sight and promoting skin health. Vitamin A also provides some powerful antioxidant activities in the body.
Where do the omega-3s in the Wave Bars come from?
The omega-3 fats are naturally occurring and come mostly from the ground flaxseeds in our bars (430 mg in mixed berry, and 440 mg in baked apple).
What is tapioca syrup?
Tapioca syrup is a clean, neutral-flavored syrup produced from the yucca root. It adds sweetness, moistness, and helps keep the ingredients neatly together in the Wave Bar.
Are Wave Bars certified Kosher?
Yes. Wave bars are certified Kosher snack bars by the Orthodox Union (OU), the worlds most recognized and trusted kosher certifying organization.
Are Wave Bars vegan?
Yes. Wave bars are vegan.
Are Wave Bars organic?
Not yet. We care about our ingredients and are always looking to ensure we are doing our part to support organic farmers and the organic food marketplace. We use quality ingredients we are proud of and we are seriously looking toward offering an organic line of Wave Bars down the road as we grow and expand.
Are Wave Bars gluten-free?
Our ingredients do not naturally contain gluten. Some of our ingredients, such as oats, can come in contact with other grains that contain gluten at the farm, mill or in production causing cross-contamination. Our bars are made and packaged in a facility where other gluten-containing ingredients are used and have not been certified as a gluten-free food. However, we will continue to keep our pulse on the possibility of becoming certified gluten-free over time.
