New JunoBar free of gluten, dairy and soy

Wed., Aug. 7, 2013, midnight

BumbleBar has a new gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and mostly raw addition to its organic snack bar family.

The Spokane-based company owned by Liz and Glenn Ward has created the new JunoBar, which is set to hit store shelves by the end of the month.

The new bar made with dates and quinoa is high in fiber and protein. Protein in the bars comes from crisped quinoa, as well as hemp and rice protein. Each bar has at least 20 percent of the day’s recommended fiber.

JunoBar comes in three flavors: Brownie Batter, with chia seeds and vanilla; Apple Crisp with cinnamon, apple and vanilla; and Peanut Butter Cookie. They are named for the Roman goddess Juno, who was often described as having “fullness of vital force” and eternal youthfulness, according to a news release.
