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.

FOOD ALLERGEN AND GLUTEN PROTOCOLS

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.

THE TOP ELEVEN FOOD ALLERGENS and GLUTEN DECLARATIONS

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.

Wheat

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.

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

CROSS CONTAMINATION

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 7, 2014 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 but don't forget your overall health. Here are some healthy reasons why you'll want to enjoy this delicious granola bar:

  • Although all the chocolate in this bar tastes decadent, double chocolate chip is actually tied for the granola bar flavor with the lowest calories, fat and sugar
  • Appropriate snack size at 120 calories per 30 g bar
  • 2 g of fiber in every 30 g bar
  • A great way to get your recommended daily intake (3 servings/48 g) of whole grains with 14 g of whole grain oats per granola bar
  • In terms of sugar, all varieties of Nonuttin' Granola Bars have less than 2/3 the sugar in a medium apple. The carbohydrate count of the bars is equal to that of a medium apple.
  • Oats are a source of iron and B vitamins
  • Oats are a natural source of soluble fiber and have been shown to reduce cholesterol
  • The majority of fat in this product is from non-GM canola oil, which has the lowest amount of unsaturated fats amongst vegetable oils and is recognized as a good part of a heart-healthy diet
  • Low in sodium
  • No trans fats
  • No cholesterol
  • Vegetarian
  • You've probably heard all about probiotics that are healthy bacteria that inhabit our digestive system but did you know that oats are a good prebiotic? All those little probiotics need to thrive and they do it by eating preobitics. So ingesting probiotics and prebiotics (like having probiotic yogurt with your granola bar) makes for a happy digestive system.
  • 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
  • Instead of preservatives, we’ve used high quality packaging to give this bar its 1 year shelf life from the date of manufacture
  • To open, hold at the top seal and tear vertically along one of the zig zag seals.
  • Once opened, this granola bar should be eaten although in may keep well in a sealed container or bag to be enjoyed within the week
  • This item can be frozen under normal conditions and sealed in its packaging for up to 6 months past the date of expiration

US Customs and FDA

On rare occasions, we may ship your product from our Canadian manufacturing facility rather than our Blaine, Washington, shipping warehouse.  In this case, 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.

All shipping costs include US Customs and FDA fees.  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.

 

Order Tracking

When your order is shipped from our Blaine, WA, shipping warehouse 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. 

 

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.  If bloom is visible on our bulk organic chocolate chips, it will disappear as soon as the chocolate is exposed to heat again upon baking.

 

Damaged Shipment

With the exception of melted chocolate, if any package arrives obviously damaged, refuse the package and have it sent directly back to us.  If possible, please take pictures as well before refusing the package.  Upon receipt of that package, we will replace the damaged contents and ship the replacement immediately with no additional cost to you. 

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

If you don't see any obvious damage until you open your package, please take pictures of the shipment and send them to us via email within 24 hours of receipt of the package.  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.
