Rise’s Raspberry Pomegranate Bar is filled with antioxidant rich raspberries and pomegranates, for a fruity flavor combination complimented with almonds, dates and coconuts. With 5g of fiber and only 200 calories, it’s no surprise that Fitness Magazine said “Numerous testers likened the consistency and “fruity, but not too sweet” flavor of this date-based bar to the filling of a Fig Newton.”

This healthful combination is certain to keep you going in between any activities. The quick lasting, anytime energy from the Rise Energy+ Raspberry Pomegrante Bar is perfect to fuel your day in between meals, whether on the go, at the office or you simply need a boost wherever you are! Many energy bars rely on artificial ingredients, added sugars, and processed grains, making them no more nutritious than a candy bar. Rise Bars provide wholesome energy and nutrition from unprocessed nuts, fruit and seeds. In addition, Rise Bars are vegetarian and Kosher, and are free of gluten, preservatives, GMOs, soy and peanuts, making them a convenient choice for anyone.

Like many of the fruits in our Energy+ Line, this bar is rich in antioxidant super fruits. One such fruit is raspberries. Research on organic raspberries shows us that organic raspberries are noticeably higher in total antioxidants than non-organic raspberries. In fact, a series of tests involving free radical scavenging all provided the same results: organic raspberries outperformed their non-organic counterparts in terms of their antioxidant activity.

Pomegranates, too, are nutrient dense and antioxidant rich. Ancient cultures even revered it as a symbol of health. One study shows that potent antioxidant compounds found in pomegranates have shown to reduce platelet aggregation and naturally lower blood pressure, factors that prevent both heart attacks and strokes.

Rise Bar’s Energy+ Raspberry Pomegranate is perfect for an anytime snack, on the go or whenever you need a great pick-me-up during your day! Without anything artificial, it’s the natural way to boost your day.
