Solo Energy: About The Company

by TJ Sadler February 27, 2018

The Signature Box includes Solo Energy bars. We wanted to learn more about the company's mission and the ingredients that makes their product so unique. 

What is Solo?
SoLo Bars were designed using a unique blend of slow release carbohydrates, proteins and fibres that provide a lower glycemic response than other leading energy bars.  This means SoLo fills your tank with premium fuel to keep your body running stronger over a longer period of time, so you don't experience the "highs and lows" that occur when your blood sugar levels go up and down.  Instead, SoLo helps to maintain a healthy blood sugar level, keeping your body "smooth and steady" as you go about your day.  There are no roller coasters around here!

What was the inspiration for starting the Company?
SoLo was created when founder Saul Katz learned of the growing epidemic of diabetes. He was inspired to change the way we snacked, giving his children’s generation a healthier, happier chance at living life to its fullest. Saul worked with leading food scientists to develop a great tasting snack with functional benefits to promote health, enhance performance and prevent disease.

What are the benefits of Solo Bars?
SoLo Bars are certified low glycemic (GI of 23-35) by GI Laboratories in Toronto, Ontario.  SoLo Bars have also been used in scientific studies, including a study on children with Type 1 diabetes.  SoLo Bars are also gluten-free certified by the Canadian Celiac Association and Kosher OUD. 
SoLo Bars contain 10-13 grams of protein and 3-4 grams of fibre, and best of all - they taste amazing.  With 10 mouth-watering flavours and no chalky aftertaste.
