Crafted as an on-the-go breakfast option and healthy snack, Juti Bars are the creation of company founder Matt Zembruski, whose passion for nutrient-rich satisfying foods began in his mom’s kitchen with her homemade energy bars. Zembruski refined the recipe over time with the help of nutritionists, athletes, friends, and family and called it the Juti Bar. Juti means “energy” in ancient Sanskrit and Juti Bars were created to provide health conscious people with a steady flow of natural energy throughout their day.
The Juti Organics founder is very passionate about the non-GMO movement in America today, and when asked to share his thoughts on the topic, Zembruski said that “No one is sure just how dangerous GMOs are in our food supply today, but one thing we do know is that GMOs exist in most of the foods that we eat. As a result, we make each Juti Bar with only organic ingredients so that we can have full confidence in the quality of every bar we sell. Putting the highest quality foods into your body is going to give you the best results, and the highest quality foods today are both organic and Non-GMO Project Verified.”
Juti Bars are produced in compliance with the Non-GMO Project standard – that means Juti Organics follows rigorous best practices for GMO avoidance, including segregation and traceability in the production of all its ingredients, so that from farm to packaging contamination is prevented. GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses and other animals and plants. These experimental combinations of genes cross the natural species barrier and have not been proven safe.
A 2015 ABC News telephone survey of 1,024 adults indicated that 93% of Americans support labeling foods that have been genetically modified or engineered. Over half of Americans surveyed said that they are less likely to buy foods labeled as genetically modified, with a major concern being that they believe genetically modified food is unsafe to eat. Effects on people’s health, including cancer and allergies, are some of the main reasons for this strong level of apprehension toward GMO foods.
As evidenced in this ABC News survey, there is a strong movement in the United States today in favor of mandatory labeling on all genetically modified foods. Until true transparency in labeling is required for all food manufacturers in the country, the best way to have confidence that the food you’re eating is free from GMOs is to look for the non-GMO Project Verified seal. Juti Organics is very excited to be working closely with the national Non-GMO Project, the leading third party non-GMO verification program. Together we passionately believe that everyone deserves an informed choice and has the right to know what they’re eating.
Each Juti Bar contains a unique blend of whole food ingredients, including organic gluten-free rolled oats, organic raw almond butter, organic brown rice protein, organic vegan dark chocolate chunks, organic raw coconut nectar, organic coconut flour, organic chia seeds, organic ground flax, organic cinnamon, and organic vanilla bean.
