Food: Our Favorite Subject

It’s true: we love talking about our food. And we love to get questions from the people who eat it. Here are some of our favorites. If there’s something you want to know and it’s not covered here, just ask. We’ll do our best to get you an answer.

What is LUNA®?

LUNA is the first nutrition bar specially formulated with a woman’s needs in mind to help nourish them throughout their busy day and lives. LUNA provides the nutrients women often lack, like folic acid, calcium, iron, vitamin D and other vitamins and minerals, which are essential to a woman’s everyday needs, while being as organic as possible.

Does LUNA contain any common food allergens such as dairy, nuts, wheat, etc?

To address all of your allergen-related questions, please view our complete Allergen Reference Table.

Is LUNA vegan-friendly?

Peanut Honey Pretzel contains honey, a product of bees. All other flavors do not contain milk/dairy, honey or animal products, however they might contain trace amounts of milk/dairy.

Is LUNA kosher?

LUNA is certified kosher by Kof-K.

Does LUNA contain GMOs or bioengineered ingredients?

Clif Bar & Company is committed to sourcing ingredients that are not genetically engineered in all of our products. We have stringent protocols for GMOs which includes requiring affidavits from ingredient suppliers demonstrating they can meet our non GMO requirements.

Does a portion of LUNA sales go to the Breast Cancer Fund?

LUNA contributes to the Clif Bar Family Foundation, which donates 1% of all product revenue to organizations that support and improve environmental, social and cultural needs, from our local to our global community. The Breast Cancer Fund is one of the primary organizations to which we donate.

Is LUNA appropriate for kids to eat?

Because LUNA is formulated with adult needs in mind, kids should not eat a whole bar until their nutritional needs more closely match those of an adult (around ages 9-13). Kids ages 4-9 could have half on occasion and as with all food choices, parents should use their best judgment. An option for kids to try is our CLIF Kid snack line, which offers CLIF Kid Zbar® and CLIF Kid Zbar Protein®. They are both uniquely designed for the nutritional needs of growing, active kids and tastes great.

Is LUNA appropriate for men to eat?

Of course! Men, too, can enjoy LUNA. While our bar was originally crafted to include nutrients that are typically missing from a woman’s diet, men can and do enjoy snacking on our delicious, nutritious bars as well. There is nothing in a LUNA bar that is not good for men. In fact, at Clif Bar & Company, we have a favorite saying: “Real Men Eat LUNA.”

Is LUNA a meal replacement bar?

LUNA is a delicious snack bar that can help satisfy and curb hunger between meals, or serve as a nutritious addition to a light meal. LUNA is not a meal replacement bar or a diet bar. At LUNA, we believe in maintaining a balanced, active and healthy lifestyle, and encourage our fans to eat positively and without guilt.

Is LUNA low Glycemic Index?

Yes, LUNA bars are considered a “low glycemic” food due to the portion size and balance of carbohydrate, fat, protein, fiber. Glycemic Index (GI) can be a great tool for fine-tuning the carbohydrate choices in your meal plan, but it shouldn’t be your exclusive consideration for whether or not to include certain foods in your daily meal plans.

Why is LUNA made with organic ingredients?

Organic food is good for the body and good for the planet. By using organically grown ingredients, we help keep harmful pesticides and synthetic fertilizers out of the environment and our bodies. It contains zero grams trans fat, partially- hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup; artificial flavors or synthetic preservatives; and we source ingredients that are not genetically engineered.

What is the nutritional profile of a LUNA Bar?

Each 1.69 oz (48g) LUNA Bar has around 180 calories with 9-10g protein and 3-5g fiber. It is high in calcium, folic acid and iron, a good source of Vitamin D, and rich in antioxidants (vitamins A, C and E). Each bar has 3.5-6g fat and 9-14g sugar depending on the flavor.

Is LUNA gluten free?

At the end of 2014 we started to transition all LUNA flavors to be gluten-free. Our ingredient suppliers have confirmed that all ingredients are gluten-free, to include certified gluten-free oats and tapioca syrup solids, both sourced from our trusted, domestic farm suppliers. The location where we make our food is capable of making a gluten-free food and we test our finished products to confirm that they are gluten-free.

You can tell if your LUNA is gluten-free by looking at the packaging.
