PHYTER FAQs

What is in a Phyter bar?

Phyters are a plant based energy bar made with organic ripe plants. They are free of preservative and chemicals. Phyters are cooked by owner/partner Chef David “HC” Choi in our certified organic commercial kitchen. Chef David puts love and care into each and every Phyter!

What makes your bars different from other bars on the market?

Phyters are a balanced “real food” energy bar that contain nothing but organic plants. No chemicals, no preservatives. So you won’t find them on the crowded energy bar shelf. You will find Phyters in the refrigerated or frozen section of your favorite grocery store. If you don’t see us, ask for us!

Where do I store my Phyters?

Phyters are best stored in the freezer for up to 1 year or the refrigerator for 90 days. The best way to enjoy Phyters, is to remove them from the freezer and enjoy it right away or throughout the day. Your Phyter bars are best consumed the same day or 48 hours after they are removed from the freezer. Phyters defrost within 20-30 minutes but lots of folks like them right from the freezer!

I just bought a box of Phyters from the grocery store refrigerator, can I put them in the freezer when I get home?

Yes, you can freeze your Phyters once you purchase them from your retailer or store back in your refrigerator.

Do Phyters contain peanuts or other nuts?

Yes, all Phyters are made with organic almond butter with the exception of Butternut Squash + Peanut Butter which is made with organic peanut butter.

Are Phyters raw?

Are Phyters a protein bar or an Energy bar?

Phyters are NOT a protein bar. Typically, protein bars have very high amounts of protein, beyond what is needed. In many cased, this high level of protein is achieved by adding chemicals. Our Phyters have a balanced amount of protein since the protein comes naturally from plants.

When would I eat my Phyter?

Phyters can be enjoyed as a meal, dessert, snack, pre-work out or post work out food.

Where can I buy Phyters in my local area?

Please visit our website for Phyter retailers. If your favorite retailer does NOT carry them, please ask if they can carry them. You can also visit our online store and order directly from us.

What do some of your flavors taste like? The combinations like sweet potato and coconut sound interesting.

Great question! This is what we hear from our fans:

 

Sweet Potato + Coconut: “just like carrot cake”

Beet + Cocoa: “like a rich chocolate brownie”

Butternut Squash + Peanut Butter: “just the right amount of creamy peanut butter”

Cranberry + Strawberry: “so refreshing! the tart & sweet combo is perfectly balanced”

What if there is no expiration date? How do I know if it is still good?!

Remember, Phyters are “real food” and don’t contain preservatives. If you ever question freshness, sniff and look for anything growing before consuming. If something tastes funny, DO NOT EAT! If you have any other issues, return it to the store you bought it from and ask for a full refund. In addition, please email info@phyterfood.com and let us know which store you bought it from so we can work with that retailer to improve freshness.
