ZEGO’s Sunflower Date bar has a simple, wholesome recipe that features the “ZEGO Seed Mix” of sacha inchi seed protein, sunflower seeds, chia seeds and poppy seeds, all carefully chosen to provide nutritional balance. The bar offers 6g of crushed seed protein (no enzymes or chemicals used), 500mg of omega-3 fatty acids, and 4g of fiber.
The goal of ZEGO is to provide peace of mind. “When we started, there were no companies making nutrient-dense convenience foods that met the needs of people with more than one or two of the most common dietary restrictions,” stated CEO Colleen Kavanaugh. “There also were no companies going the extra step in allergen and gluten safety—testing all their batches and providing the test data to consumers,” she added. “We test every batch for cross contact as part of our Z-Code Food Safety System to provide worry-free snacks,” said Ms. Kavanagh. Using a smart phone or tablet, anyone can scan the QR code on the Sunflower Date bar package to access the test results, or they can view it on the company’s website.”
ZEGO is also leading the way on supply chain transparency by testing its products for glyphosate residue and posting the results for customers to see. ZEGO also uses glyphosate testing to verify its suppliers’ organic and non-GMO certifications, which is so important for keeping the whole supply chain clean and honest.
