REDD stands for Radiant Energy Deliciously Delivered. These nutrient-packed protein bars came from Portland, Maine - a city recognized as an attraction for food-lovers.
So it should be no surprise that a superfood snack would originate in this foodie wonderland.
The History of REDD
REDD's founder, Aldean Blease, created these protein bars due to his college meal plan running out. He didn’t want to rely on cheap, unnatural food so instead he went to a health store and bought superfoods in bulk.
With those, he made his own dough, which eventually became the REDD bars known today. This backpack business flourished, from its initial creation in 2016 to the current product, launched in April 2019.
REDD Company Mission
Its nourishing, plant-based protein bars provide major energy, but without the drawbacks of caffeine and sugar crashes. With powerful superfoods in every flavor and 10 grams of protein - this is snacking with purpose.
REDD aspires to make getting your daily dose of plant-based benefits easy and all wrapped in one package. That means a bar full of proteins, probiotics, and phytonutrients.
Benefits of REDD
Getting a sufficient amount of protein as a vegetarian or vegan can be a hassle, especially on a busy schedule. With the added bonus of 8-10 grams of fiber per bar, it’ll keep you full on the go, with the protein you need.
REDD has also made a conscious choice to avoid certain ingredients, due to its philosophy based on only keeping in the good stuff. Its products are GMO-free, and don’t include processed soy, which is the typical meat-free way to fill up on protein. Instead, the company uses a clean, highly-digestible alternative: pumpkin seeds.
REDD bars innovative combination of plant-based nutrition won’t leave you hanging and offer all of the following benefits:
- 10 grams of pea, hemp, and pumpkin seed protein
- 3-5 grams of natural sugar per bar
- Prebiotics and 1 billion CFU probiotics
- Adaptogenic mushroom blend
- Gluten-free, Soy-free, vegan, kosher, and non-GMO.
