FAQs: GR2eat bar™
A. The GR2eat bars are formulated to have a high melting point and should tolerate the heat well. However, all whole-food coatings are sensitive, so we suggest that you store the bars in a cool, dry place, away from heat or direct sunlight. For best results, allow product to come to room temperature before handling.
A. Yes, for an introductory period, the Intro Kit will contain two GR2eat bars – one of each flavor – at no cost.
A. GR2eat bars are the perfect mini-meal. They provide about the same calories, and the same balance of protein, fat, and carbohydrates you would find in a ‘mini-meal’.
A. We do not recommend long-term freezing as it may compromise the integrity of the coating. The bars are packaged in a stay-fresh wrapper to ensure freshness, so freezing is not necessary. All of our products have a ‘Best If Used By’ date on the label. We guarantee full potency, viability, and flavor of the products if used on or before the expiration date, provided they were stored under normal conditions.
A. Absolutely! The GR2eat bar makes a great treat for children, providing a healthy substitute for fat and sugar-laden candy.
A. Yes, GR2eat Bars contain whey protein, caseinate, and lactose. The amount of lactose is so small that it should not be an issue for even the most sensitive lactose intolerant person.
A. Fractionation is a separation process used to obtain specific portions (fractions) of a plant oil. This allows us to make a coating that is solid at room temperature without hydrogenation or trans fats.
A. GR2eat bars contain a small amount of sugar. In fact, 10 grams of sugar is only 40 calories, and most of that is from fructose. We need some carbohydrate to keep us off the glycemic roller coaster and out of the insulin trap. That’s why all of our mini-meal suggestions offer a balanced combination of protein, fat, and carbohydrates. A piece of cheese (fat and protein) and half an apple (carbs) is a good ‘mini-meal’ example. It has to be that way to be GR2 Control and keep people in the control zone.
A. At this time we are not planning any other flavors.
A. No, the GR2eat bar is gluten free.
A. Palm Kernel Oil is obtained from the seed or kernel of the palm fruit.
A. GNLD’s GR2eat bar provides glycemic edge carbohydrates; a balance of protein, fat, and calories; great taste; and controlled glycemic response. No sugar high or crashing low.
A. At GNLD, we use natural flavors whenever possible. However, a 100% natural flavoring system isn’t technically feasible in some products. We use the minimal amount of artificial flavoring necessary for our products to achieve an acceptable taste, selecting additional flavors from a list of low allergy food flavors. The artificial flavors we do employ are all food grade pure flavor components that have been approved for use in food products by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
A. GR2eat bars contain the correct balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fat needed to nourish your body while keeping your blood sugar and insulin levels stable. Unlike other ‘snack’ bars, it is low in sugar, fat, and calories.

A. Absolutely! GR2eat bars are an excellent pre- and post-workout snack bar that will help fuel your body through the most demanding training sessions or intense games. It provides your body with the carbohydrates it needs for energy, as well as protein and fat for muscle building and repair.
A. No, there are no nuts in GR2eat bar. However, it is manufactured in a facility that processes nuts and seeds. You will notice a disclaimer on our packaging to that effect.
A. As with all GNLD products that contain multiple carbohydrate sources, GR2eat bars were formulated to provide long-lasting energy levels. To accomplish this, different carbohydrate sources are needed: sucrose for quick energy, and fructose for more sustained energy. Like our other ‘glycemic edge’ products, GR2eat bars spare protein for energy, so it can be used for its primary purposes of tissue growth and repair.
