What are adaptogens?
Adaptogens are natural substances (plants, fungi, minerals) that naturally increase the body’s ability to resist the damaging effects of stress on the body and promote or restore normal physiological function. These natural substances work in a responsive manner to the body’s needs: boosting immunity, energy, and help us feel more balanced. 
What adaptogens do Balanced Tiger products contain?
Our bars contain adaptogenic mushrooms, such as Cordyceps and Lion's Mane. These have been used for millennia in Eastern medicine, due to their ability to positively impact the body, mind and spirit. For more information on each, see the Adaptogenic Mushrooms page
How many bars can I eat a day?
These functional mushrooms are powerful herbs, and we suggest that you start with just eating one or two a day. After eating them for several days, you can begin to consume as many as you would like!
Should I consume the bars on a daily basis?
Yes! Adaptogens are most impactful with time and consistency! 
Where do you source your mushrooms from?
Our mushrooms are organically and sustainably grown in Southern California!
Do you use the mushroom's fruiting body in your product?
Yes! We use a blend of mainly the fruiting body; however, we also have mycelium in our mushroom mix, as mycelium produces an extraordinary array of powerful enzymes that provide a complex matrix of bio-active, health-promoting compounds.
Are the bars organic?
Yes, our products are USDA certified 95% organic. All ingredients have cleared rigorous USDA certification standards, going all the way back to the farm.
Are the bars gluten free?
Yes, the bars have been lab-tested and contain less then 20ppm gluten.
Are the bars non-GMO?
Yes, the non-GMO Project has certified these products.
Are the bars vegan?
Yes, our products are 100% plant-based and use only vegan ingredients.
How are the bars sweetened?
The bars are sweetened with a dash of Tapioca Syrup, which is derived from Cassava, a naturally occuring tuberous root. This sustainable, organic sweetener provides great taste without any artifical funk, and only 5g total sugar per bar.
What proteins do the bars contain?
The products contain 11g total protein from Brown Rice Protein and Pea Protein.
Are there nuts in Balanced Tiger bars?
Yes, the bars contain nut butters and diced nuts.
Is the packaging compostable?
Yes! The textured insert inside the box is made of mushrooms, grown into that shape, then dehydrated. These are compostable in 21 days. The boxes are made from tree-free paper and are also compostable (minus the shipping & barcode stickers). The only exception is the bar wrapper, which in the near future will also be compostable.
Are your ingredients sustainably sourced?
Yes, all Balanced Tiger suppliers have USDA Organic Certifications, which means the food is sustainably produced all the way back to the farm!
Do you manufacture sustainably?
Yes! We are very passionate about all things being sustainable. Our mushrooms are sustainably cultivated in California using very little energy, our boxing supplier was 1 of 10 California companies to make the Green Team Honor Roll, our mushroom boxes are naturally grown in 7 days and compost into the soil in less than 30, and our product manufacturer is SQF and is partially run on solar power. SQF codes are designed to meet the highest regulatory requirements for all sectors of the food supply chain — from farms all the way to retail stores. We have and will continue to look for the best and most sustainable suppliers in the industry. 
Do you test your products for heavy metals?
Yes. All of our products are subject to a three step process. Our supplier provide us with their testing specs per batch, we run our product through metal detectors during manufacturing, and then post-manufacturing we have our manufacturer lab test for heavy metals and other contaminants to meet and exceed industry standards.
