At NuGo Nutrition, we always used the best, most natural ingredients we can find, so that you can be most naturally—and gloriously—you. We searched the world for suppliers of top quality Non-GMO ingredients for Fiber d'Lish bars, are we're proud to have earned the Non-GMO Project Verified stamp of approval!
What does the Non-GMO verification mean for you? It means you don’t have to worry that less-than-scrupulous ingredients are sneaking into your favorite flavors when you aren’t looking. It means the fondness you have for Fiber d'Lish has even more reason to grow into a strong, heart-healthy relationship. It means we care about what you put in your body, and you can trust that we've got your back. And—if we’re going to get technical—it means that Fiber d'Lish bars are free of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). Despite being banned or restricted in more than 60 countries worldwide, GMOs may be found in up to 80% of processed food in the United States, according to the Non-GMO Project.
GMO foods are made when biotech companies use genetic engineering to introduce different or additional genes into the DNA of crops to add a desired trait—like extra color or plumpness, or pesticide resistance. (Sounds a bit Frankenstein-like, right?) Bacteria and viruses are used to introduce the new genes, creating unnatural and potentially unstable genomes.
Because the long-term effects of consuming GMO-containing foods have not been determined, NuGo is passionate about keeping Fiber d'Lish bars pure and wholesome.
GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) are created when biotech companies use bacteria and viruses to introduce genes from other plants or animals into the DNA of crops to add a desired trait—like extra color, plumpness, or pesticide resistance.
Sounds kind of like science fiction. But it's not. The Non-GMO Project estimates that in North America, over 80% of food contains GMOs!
Because we're passionate about keeping Fiber d'Lish bars pure and wholesome, and the long-term effects of consuming GMO-containing foods have not been determined, we only use top-notch, Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients in our bars.
The Non-GMO Project is North America's only independent product verification system, and the Non-GMO Project verification seal is one that Fiber d'Lish bars wear with pride.

Apples are one of the most popular fruits worldwide, and for many great reasons. (Did you know the proverb "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" dates back to the 19th century?) Beyond being inexpensive, easy to pack and eat on the go, apples are a good source of fiber (eat the peel!), and are rich in anti-inflammatory antioxidants, Vitamin C, potassium, phosphorus, and calcium, which serve important roles in keeping the body healthy.
Is all fiber created equal? Nope. Eating the wrong fiber bar can be self-sabotage, and the leading fiber bar manufacturers don’t deliver on the promise of fiber. Fortunately, at FiberLove, we have the backs of eaters everywhere.
It’s well known that fiber is an important part of a healthy diet. Yet, few people know how intensely beneficial fiber can be. For example, did you know that a 2011 study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine determined that a high-fiber diet lowers overall risk of early death by 22%, and that the life-prolonging health benefits of fiber are most strongly associated with the fiber found in unprocessed whole grains, rather than in processed fiber.
