Libre Naturals Inc. was created by the parents of a food allergic child.  As such, we strive to be clear about the ingredients and protocols we use.

We want you to feel comfortable about choosing any Libre Naturals product.  If you have any questions about our lines or allergens, please feel free to contact us toll free at 1-866-714-5411 or by email at info@librenaturals.com.


While nobody can guarantee a level of zero risk; we have created strict allergen protocols to offer you products you can trust:

  • All ingredient suppliers must provide written declarations about what allergens/gluten are in their products and facilities
  • We conduct several allergen/gluten tests on all incoming raw ingredients plus random finished product testing using verified scientific procedures
  • We have strict shipping and receiving policies including tracing and tracking all ingredients
  • Staff training and contracts ensure that everyone from the office to shipping understands the severity of food allergies
  • All products are manufactured and/or packaged in our own dedicated facility with the exception of the organic chocolate chips that are manufactured and packaged for us in a dedicated gluten free and top 11 food allergen free facility

We have outlined below the top 11 common food allergens and gluten plus a couple of notes about flavors, latex and cross contamination.


No ingredients containing dairy are used in the Libre Naturals facility. This includes all derivatives such as casein or whey. Cocoa butter is not dairy but is the fat of the cocoa bean.

No ingredients containing eggs are used in the Libre Naturals facility.

No ingredients containing fish are used in the Libre Naturals facility.

No ingredients containing gluten are used in the Libre Naturals facility.  We were the first North American company to begin using gluten free oats in 2007 and, starting in 2010, all of our products are certified Gluten Free by the Gluten Free Certification Organization (GFCO) which has a standard of 10 parts per million (ppm), more stringent than the national standard of 20 ppm.

No ingredients containing mustard are used in the Libre Naturals facility.

No ingredients containing peanut are used in the Libre Naturals facility. All Libre Naturals staff members sign contracts to ensure they do not eat peanut products before work or bring them into any area of the Libre Naturals facility, including the lunchroom.

No ingredients containing sesame are used in the Libre Naturals facility.

No ingredients containing shellfish (including crustaceans) are used in the Libre Naturals facility.

No ingredients containing soy or its derivatives (i.e. soy lecithin) are used in the Libre Naturals facility.

No ingredients containing sulfite preservatives are used in the Libre Naturals facility.

Tree nuts - (i.e. almonds, cashews, pecans).
No ingredients containing tree nuts are used in the Libre Naturals facility. All Libre Naturals staff members sign contracts to ensure they do not eat tree nut products before work or bring them into any area of the Libre Naturals facility, including the lunchroom.

Canada, where our manufacturing facility is located, does not list coconut as a tree nut but the USA does. In any case, we treat coconut as a tree nut declaration with all of our suppliers. No ingredients containing coconut are used in the Libre Naturals facility.

No ingredients containing wheat are used in the Libre Naturals facility.

A Note About Flavors
All Libre Naturals granolas have flavors added to them that are indicated on the ingredient list as "natural flavor".  Please note that we do not add any additional flavors that are not already indicated in the name of the product. The kinds of flavors used are as follows:

Vanilla Cinnamon Granola: Vanilla

Vanilla Caramel Granola: Vanilla

Blueberry Maple Granola: Maple

Additionally, we closely adhere to all food allergen labeling regulations and would declare any of the top 11 allergens or gluten as an allergen warning if the flavors were to contain a top food allergen or gluten.

No latex gloves are used on any Libre Naturals production line. We use only medical grade, powder-free nitrile gloves.


The Libre Naturals facility is organized into two separate lines that are not separated by walls.  Manufacturing schedules are set up to minimize cross contamination between different products and/or varieties but it may not be completely avoided.  If you would like to review what ingredients we use in our facility, please check out our Ingredients page.

This declaration is accurate at April 8, 2015 but may change without further notice. Please read ingredient labels and online declarations every time you purchase.

Once you've determined that our product is safe for your special dietary needs, you can take pleasure in great taste and health benefits. We're sure that you don't really need reasons to add chocolate to your diet but here's some extra ammunition:

  • Although chocolate hasn't yet been elevated superfood status in the science world, scientists recognize that flavanols in cocoa beans have antioxidant effects that reduce the cell damage associated with heart disease
  • Flavanols are more prevalent in dark chocolate and can help lower blood pressure and improve vascular function
  • Keep at room temperature, approximately 70 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Once opened, chocolate chips are best if repackaged in an airtight container, sealed between uses.
  • If in a humid, hot location (above 70 degrees Fahrenheit), high quality chocolate may melt and is prone to developing bloom.  Bloom does not mean that the chocolate is bad, simply that the cocoa butter is rising to the surface of the chip and it appears gray.  Bloom will go away once exposed to heat again, such as with baking.
  • This item can be frozen under normal conditions and sealed in its packaging for up to 6 months past the date of expiration
  • Alternatively, chocolate chips can be repackaged in freezer safe bags/containers for freezing rather than keeping in the original packaging

Suggested Serving Options

  • Delicious by the handful
  • Added to any recipe requiring chocolate
  • Sprinkled on ice cream
  • Added to your favorite trail mix
  • Melted for your own chocolates/dips/fondues

As a chocolate bark (which also makes a great holiday gift):

  • Simply place 2 cups of Libre Naturals Organic 55% cocoa mini chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl
  • Microwave at 1 minute intervals on high, stirring well in between, just until all chocolate has melted
  • Stir in 1 cup of Libre Naturals raw sunflower seeds and/or pumpkin seeds plus your favorite dried fruit until well covered
  • Turn onto a parchment lined pan (or lightly sprayed with oil)
  • Cool in the refrigerator until hard
  • Break apart and store in an airtight container for 1 week (if it lasts that long)


Standard Ground (5-10 business days):  Orders are shipped from our manufacturing facility in Duncan, BC, CANADA.  Weekends and holidays are not included in business days.  The total delivery time includes the time it takes to process your order plus actual shipping time through Canada, US Customs and FDA clearance and then shipping time in the USA.

Fedex International Air (2-3 business days):  Orders are shipped from our manufacturing facility in Duncan, BC, CANADA and the charge quoted is what Fedex charges by weight for International Air to the USA from our location.  We do not add any additional charges.

Weekends and holidays are not included in business days.  The total delivery time includes the time it takes to process your order plus actual shipping time in the USA which may take more or less time dependent upon whether you are in a major urban area.  Please note that depending on the time of day you place your order, the shipment may not go out until the following business day due to Fedex cut-off times.

We have limited the air shipment value so that US Customs and FDA clearance fees are not applied as American consumers are allowed to bring in orders up to $200 with no additional clearance fees.   If you must air ship an order valued at over $200, please call us and we will charge you the $40 US Customs and FDA clearance costs that we are charged.  This shipping option is not covered by any free shipping offers or coupons at any time.

Delivery Times:  All deliveries by Fedex take place during regular business hours from Monday through Saturday for home delivery.  If you are not home and the driver feels it is unsafe to leave a package, a notice will be left with further instructions for redelivery or a pickup location.  To avoid this, we suggest you ship to an address where someone is available to receive the delivery during business hours, such as your workplace.  Any shipments going to a workplace will be delivered during regular business hours, Monday through Friday.

If you order from the Libre Naturals online store over the weekend, on a Canadian holiday or after 10 am on a business day, your order will not be processed until the next business day under normal business volume conditions.

Please note that, with the exception of APO addresses, Fedex cannot deliver to PO boxes.  Please use only your street address.

US Customs and FDA

Your order will pass through both US Customs and FDA clearance.  Please note that US Customs/FDA may choose at any time to detain a package and may require further information from the US recipient before releasing the package, regardless of the method of transport or value of the package. Although extremely rare in our many years of experience, any delays and/or demanded information are due to US Customs/FDA and are completely beyond our control.

If, for any reason, you receive a bill for these services, please let us know within 24 hours toll free at 1-866-714-5411 or at info@librenaturals.com


Order Cancellation and Changes

If you need to make a change prior to shipment, please contact us toll free at 1.866.714.5411 and quote your order number.  Order cancellations or changes to your order may not occur once an order has been shipped.


Change of Shipping Address

If you require the shipment address to be changed once an order has been shipped, you will be charged a redirection fee.  This fee is what Fedex charges us and ranges from $10 to $50 depending on your location and is payable by credit card when the change is requested.  Please ensure that you type in the correct shipping address upon checkout.

If the change of shipping is required due to our mistake, you will have your order redirected to you at no charge.


Return Policy

For the safety of all Libre Naturals’ customers we do not return food items, regardless of their condition, therefore all sales at Libre Naturals are final.

Ingredients, nutrition and allergens for all Libre Naturals’ products are posted on each product's page, and it is a customer's responsibility to read and understand them, contact us to ask questions if necessary, and to select only those items that are safe for their specific diet.


Tracking Your Order

When your order is shipped from our Duncan, BC, warehouse via standard ground service, the Fedex shipping system will send you an email to confirm your shipment - this email will include a tracking number and link to enable you to track your package.  Please note that your tracking information will show no movement until after it passes first through Canada and then US Customs and FDA clearance so it will appear that your order has not left our warehouse.  Once your package is cleared at the border in Blaine, Washington, Fedex will scan your bar code there and you will begin to see your shipment track in the USA.  This is also why, when you receive your package, you'll see our shipping address as Blaine, WA, even though it actually shipped from Canada.


Chocolate Shipment Policy

When shipping chocolate items, there is a risk of product damage during warm weather or when shipping to warmer climates.  If you choose to ship any products that have chocolate in them, you assume the risk of this possibility when you place an order for those items with Libre Naturals Inc.

If granola bars do get overheated, the granola bars and chocolate should resume their shape if left to return to room temperature without being handled.  The heat will not  affect the taste or quality of the bars although long term shelf life may be compromised.

Any chocolate that has been heated and then cooled may get "bloom", a gray surface on the chocolate.  Bloom is not harmful and does not change the quality of the chocolate; it's simply the cocoa fat coming to the surface of the chocolate.


Damaged Shipment

With the exception of melted chocolate, if any package arrives obviously damaged, refuse the package and contact us via the directions below.  If you receive a package and don't realize there is damage until you open it or it was left damaged on your doorstep, we require pictures and a description of the type and number of damaged items.  This is necessary for us to make the damage claim with Fedex as Libre Naturals is their customer since we are the shipper.

Please notify us of your damaged shipment claim and all photo documentation within 24 hours of the receipt of shipment with our customer care team at 1-866-714-5411 or at info@librenaturals.com.  

We will then begin the claims process with Fedex and advise you on how we'll replace your damaged products and what to do with your damaged order.  


Missing Shipment

Please allow the full shipping time indicated above to elapse before contacting us about a missing shipment unless you see by your tracking link that Fedex has indicated a problem.  We can then work with Fedex to track down your shipment.

If you have given permission for the driver to leave the shipment when you were not home, Libre Naturals is not responsible for the missing shipment.  We strongly suggest that you provide a shipping address where you know someone will be present during the day.  Many people choose to ship to their work address for this reason.


Special Delivery Instructions

Unfortunately, Fedex does not accept special delivery instructions.
