Alver Golden Chlorella Protein Bar

Concerned about the impact of what we eat on the environment, the start-up Alver Golden Chlorella from the Swiss canton of Vaud pursues its quest for protein-rich foods that generate a minimum level of greenhouse gas emissions and a low carbon footprint. After the Golden Chlorella and Golden Bean protein powders, pasta, soups and sauces, the company now adds a new product to its range: the Alver Protein Bar.

This healthy, 100% natural, vegan snack contains 5 grams of protein – the equivalent of a small egg. Made in Switzerland and Bio Inspekta certified, the bar comes in 2 flavors, Chocolate or Goji Berry.

The recipe for the new Alver Protein Bar has been developed in collaboration with the Takinoa Healthy Food Shop. It is exempt of coloring, preservatives or other artificial flavors! Its protein base consists of Golden Chlorella to which are mixed nutrient-rich superfoods such as goji berries, chia seeds, and linseed, dried fruits (dates, grapes, and figs) and cereals (puffed rice, corn flakes). All of these ingredients, most of which are from Switzerland, are assembled raw without any processing, then molded and baked at 180 °C for a few minutes. The result? A crisp and tasty bar, unsweetened, as if it had been homemade!

Nourishing and tasty at the same time, Alver Protein Bar is perfect for everyone looking for a healthy snack during the workday. It can also be put in any backpack ready for a boost during the next hike!

Mine Uran, founder and CEO of Alver, explains: “This bar was created to meet the demand of many of our regular clients. They wanted a convenient protein snack to slip in a bag and have handy when they feel peckish.”

Available now for CHF 2.90 on, as well as in selected pharmacies and Healthy Food shops (see list on the website).

A healthy and balanced diet is not complete without a minimum protein intake!
