Organic Almond Butter
According to 3 of the longest-running health studies, participants who consumed the most nuts also had the lowest body mass indexes. Studies also show that the fat and protein in almonds are highly satiating — in other words, they keep you full! — and can help with weight loss. And if that weren’t enough, the monounsaturated fats in almonds have been shown time and time again to lower cholesterol and have been associated with lower risk of heart disease and cancer. Winning!
Organic Prebiotic Vegetable Fiber
Derived from the cassava plant following strictly-regulated, non-toxic procedures, organic prebiotic vegetable fiber is one of the very best fibers on the planet. Why? Because it helps regulate blood sugar, is easy to digest, and serves as a healthy meal for the good bacteria living in your gut, also known as probiotics. Apparently, good bacteria like to JERF, too!
Organic Pea Protein
Everybody loves peas, right? Just kidding! But don’t worry, our 100% organic yellow split peas pack a big-time protein punch with a neutral taste. Pea protein has been shown to support heart health, reduce inflammation, regulate blood sugar, and support weight loss. And with a bioavailability similar to beef, this plant-based super food will give you all of the benefits of protein without the risk of consuming antibiotics or hormones from unethically raised cattle.
How do you give yourself an antioxidant boost, feed your healthy gut bacteria, and stamp out inflammation all at the same time? Add a little honey to your diet! The honey we use is never processed or pasteurized. And of course it’s 100% bee-friendly. At JERF Bar, we pride ourselves on BEEing mindful to the environment. (See what we did there?)
Organic Dried Cherries
Yeah, cherries are low in calories and absolutely delicious of course. But there’s more to cherries than what meets the eye. Turns out, cherries are loaded with uber-healthy flavonoids, including the anticancer and anti-allergy agent quercetin and anticarcinogenic ellagic acid. Eat more cherries! Your body will thank you cherry much.
Organic Pumpkin Seeds
When it comes to nutrient density, pumpkin seeds are off the charts. Rich in B-vitamins, phytosterols, and minerals, including magnesium, potassium, manganese, zinc, and selenium, these toothsome seeds have been shown to lower cholesterol, improve mood, and enhance brain function. We can all use better brain function!
Organic Sunflower Seeds
These seeds aren’t just for birds and baseball players, though they do have a knack for teamwork. Research shows that the selenium and Vitamin E in sunflower seeds work together to fight cancer and heart disease.
Organic Pumpkin Protein
At JERF Bar we refuse to use soy or animal-based proteins. That’s why our bars include a nutritious blend of organic pea and pumpkin protein. The latter has been shown to improve mood, promote healthy sleep, support bone health, build lean muscle tissue, and fight nasty free radicals. And for the guys, the delta-7-sterine in pumpkin protein is reported to decrease prostate growth and prevent hair loss. Eat up, fellas!
Organic Chia Seeds
They may be small in size, but the health benefits of chia seeds are huge! For example, did you know that the antioxidants in chia seeds have been shown to speed up the skin’s repair systems and prevent premature aging? It’s true! What’s more, research has shown that adding a single daily serving of chia seeds to your diet helps boost your metabolism and burn belly fat.
Organic Flax Meal
Flax meal has been shown to have it all. Not only will its B vitamins and essential fatty acids improve the look and feel of your skin, it also helps lower bad cholesterol, reduces free radical damage, and supports digestive health (including Crohn’s disease and other serious digestive ailments). And for the our female JERFlings, the lignans in flax meal have been reported to help decrease the symptoms of menopause and hormonal imbalances.
Organic Sesame Seeds
This seed is the definition of old school! There are many reasons why sesame is in fact the oldest known plant grown for its seeds and oil. Sesame seeds have been shown to help normalize blood pressure, improve cholesterol markers, aid in fat loss, and lots more. With powerful benefits like these, this one won’t be going out of style anytime soon.
Once an “underground” sweetener known to only the most ardent health seekers, this native plant from South America has surely found its way into the mainstream. Despite being 200 times sweeter than table sugar, stevia won’t raise blood sugar or add empty calories to your diet. If you’re worried about the bitter aftertaste, rest assured that our bars don’t have it. You won’t even know it’s there. We guarantee it.
The JERF bar promises means that every ingredient is certified
60 Day Tastiest Bar You’ve Ever Tried Guarantee

We’re so confident you’re going to be blown away not only by the way you feel, but by the incredible taste, that we’re going to put our money where our mouth is. That means you’re going to get our 60 Day Tastiest Bar You've Ever Tried Guarantee!
Really, I mean thanks for the time and effort that was made for these bars. I'm not one of the ones to carefully eat on time and have made JERF part of my desk, car and purse food when I realize that I am hitting the wall. Best bar ever - not a fan of any chocolate (sin for female) but the others bars rock.
I keep at least one of these in my diaper bag at all times. Safe ingredients that I feel great eating while nursing my infant.
I have tried dozens of protein bars, and JERF comes out on top! They have figured out all the important things: ingredients, macros, taste, texture. We love these bars!
I liked the previous cherry bar better. I thought it could use a minor flavor enhancer (such as almond essence), but otherwise enjoyed it. The new "Cherry Almond Crunch" is good, but certainly not, as good. Either way JERF bars are my go-to, food on-the-go.
For what it's worth: I was really disappointed to learn that the Cinnamon Raisin bar was no longer available. It was by far my favorite and earned a 5+ star review.
I love these bars! These are the only health food/protein/snack bar that is clean, made with real food ingredients, and doesn’t bloat me or give me digestive discomfort AND actually tastes good.
