Freshly Foraged: Fringe Bars
September 29, 2023
A 'shroomy new company just created a protein bar that’s *actually* good for you.
There are a million ways to consume mushrooms these days. They can be cooked into a meal (just make sure you trust the chef!), added into a smoothie in powder form, ingested as a capsule, tincture, or gummy, imbibed as a frosty beverage, or munched on as a snack. And now, you can power up with them in a grab-and-go protein bar format thanks to the new 'shroom-goods purveyor Fringe.
Fringe was founded by Hunter Schaeffer, a surfer and athlete who felt most energy bar offerings fell short on nutritional value. As Schaeffer struggled to heal chronic back pain, he discovered mind-body medicine and a whole new world of wellness practices and ingredients. Eventually, he began making his own “fuel,” energy bars made from clean whole foods mixed with the adaptogenic mushrooms he had come to know and love.
Schaeffer’s bars feature organic lion’s mane, cordyceps, reishi, and turkey tail mushrooms along with other adaptogenic ingredients, such as ashwagandha. They come in three flavors, Chocolate Almond Butter, Coconut Cashew, and Mango Hemp. Each is naturally high in protein, antioxidants, and nutrients with none of the added sugar or synthetic junk you might encounter in other energy bars.
