Why is there a Prop 65 warning on GreenSmoothieGirl protein products?
GreenSmoothieGirl's proteins contain naturally occurring elements that are included on the Prop 65 list of substances that require a warning. The occurrence of these elements is to be expected and the result of the presence of these naturally occurring elements in the environment.
The extreme standards of Prop 65 have resulted in warnings appearing on an increasing number of natural foods whose levels of naturally occurring metals do not meet the Prop 65 standards.
Levels of metals or chemicals that are known to the State of California to cause cancer would have to exceed the prop 65 standards by more than 1,000x before there is an observable effect on the rate of birth defects.
We test our products for quality and purity and we stand behind every product we sell. We are constantly working to ensure that our products are the best available and meet the standards of our amazing customers.
How can you call BlendBars gluten-free if they are processed on shared equipment with wheat?
Production equipment is washed between products, then tested for gluten presence before the production run. The bars are also tested to ensure gluten-free status.

How are your products made “raw?”
The best short answer is "dehydrated."
It's a little more complicated since we have a raw product (i.e. over 95% of the product was dried at under 120 degrees F).
Everything except the Maca and Spirulina (which wouldn't be safe raw) is dehydrated in various ways under 120 degrees to maintain the raw status.
For example, the Noni Fruit is dried over 3-4 weeks in natural shade under controlled conditions. The Mesquite pods go in a low-temp dehydrator at 100-104 for 4 hours before cold-milling. Stuff like that.
The goal is to remove the moisture from the ingredient so that it can't grow microorganisms (and pass the "micro" test both into the copacker's as an ingredient, and back out as a mixed product).
