Etera Foods has introduced The After Bar, post-workout muscle recovery bars made with non-hemp-derived CBD and macronutrient optimized, plant-based ingredients.
The After Bar is available in three superfood-based flavors: Dark Chocolate Cherry Matcha, Antioxidant Berry Fusion, and Original Harvest Trail. These bars contain whole inclusions and nutrient-rich ingredients like ceremonial-grade matcha, anti-inflammatory turmeric, Polynesian noni, and exotic dragon fruit. All three flavors of The After Bar are 100 percent vegan, non-GMO and free of soy and gluten.
"After two years of research and development, Etera Foods has taken the gap between flavor and functionality in stride," said CEO and Founder Blake Godlove.
Each flavor contains a blend of omega-rich Sacha Inchi protein and pea protein, providing 14 grams of protein. Paired with natural carbohydrates from the fruit as well as healthy fats from nuts, The After Bar contains a balanced macronutrient ratio for optimized recovery.
The After Bar's PureForm CBD is derived from citrus, not hemp, so it can never contain THC. The technology used to extract CBD from citrus terpenes (aromatic compounds in oranges) involves no toxic solvents and preserves their organic essence. Each After Bar contains 20 mg of PureForm CBD.
"The After Bar is in a unique position by way of our partnership with PureForm Global," Godlove said. "By utilizing their citrus-derived CBD, we can offer consumers a completely risk-free form of CBD that has all of the amazing recovery benefits, without the possibility of a THC inclusion."
The After Bar is available on the brand’s website in a 6-bar sampler pack for $24.99.
