This Junk-Free Snack Bar Gets Its Protein From … WHAT?

When you’re a kid, part of the fun of eating a slice of juicy watermelon is spitting out the black seeds and seeing how far you can launch them. And those who’ve ever been gullible enough to believe the old wives' tale that swallowing one of them could make a full-sized watermelon grow in your belly have been missing out on watermelon seeds’ incredible protein power all along.

Much like their more popular cousins (seeds like sunflower and pumpkin), watermelon seeds boast tons of protein—Nutrition Data. They happen to be be pretty high in minerals and healthy fat, too.

Geniuses that they are, the folks over at Go Raw were the first to figure out how to harness watermelon seeds’ abundant amino acids and pack them into tasty nutrition bars. Our favorite flavor: Zesty Lemon. And there are no junk-food additives; only eight pure ingredients: watermelon seeds, dates, coconut nectar, vanilla extract, lemon oil, lemon peel, Celtic sea salt, and rosemary extract.

Bonus: These bars are way easier to swallow than straight watermelon seeds. And we promise you will not develop any kind of food baby after enjoying one.

    The key to how nutrients find their way into a product is not only the ingredients but also the processing methods. Making it easy to see how the item was processed is essential because we want to know that processing temperatures and processing chemicals didn't decimate all of the nutritional value of the product. The product is "out of stock" right now but although it states the ingredients are "raw" there is no explanation for how the ingredients are extracted from seeds. We would presume that someone isn't sitting at a workbench cutting each seed in half to get the contents.
