When Tom & Luke made the first batches of Trinity Bars, they wanted to create something that was full of good, quality ingredients. Tom is a big advocate for organic foods and the quality of ingredients being more important than the caloric value, organic agave syrup was used because it had been used in a number of recipes in Dr Libby Weavers book “The Real Food Chef”. Since that time, agave has had some bad press because it is a high-fructose syrup and the process by which it is made has come under scrutiny. We do agree that from a nutrition point of view, high-fructose syrups can be toxic on the body, however, often products that use a high-fructose syrup are very low in fibre. Trinity Bars have 10.2g of fibre per bar, which has been shown to attenuate the absorption of fructose through the small intestine.
This natural fibre comes from the organic sunflower butter, coconut, almonds and goji berries. This means that there is only around 6.4g of net carbohydrate per bar, (a little more than one teaspoon of sugar). Therefore, a whole bar is well under the WHO suggested daily intake of sugar.
In the beginning, we did experiment with honey but honey is a dominant flavour and can make the product too sweet as seen in some other products available. Maple syrup was a sickly flavour and we needed twice the amount of rice syrup to get the same amount of sweetness which would make the bars very, very sloppy. We decided to keep agave for the smoky flavour that it gives the Trinity Bar in the small quantity that we use.
We use organic ingredients where possible. Otherwise we attempt to source locally. Organic ingredients are listed with an asterisk.
We have assurances from our suppliers than none of the ingredients we use contain GMO foods.

Firstly, let’s keep in mind that the body does not count calories. Energy in vs. energy out isn’t that simple.
Each 75g serve does contain a total of around 347kCal.
We recommend Dr Libby Weavers new book; “The Calorie Fallacy” to everyone.
