YES! Our Paleo Bars are made in an HACCP certified gluten free kitchen. They have been tested and are confirmed to be gluten free, soy free and dairy free. We source preservative free dried fruits and coconut; there is no sulphur or any other preservatives in our ingredients. Blue Dinosaur Paleo Bars are endorsed by Coeliac Australia.
NO! All of our ingredients are completely natural, and many of them are organic. We have never, and will never, add colours, flavours or sweeteners to our products. The sweetness in each bar comes solely from the dried fruit in them. For example The Original and The Brazilian Paleo Bars contain 2.5 dates per bar, the Ginger Nut contains 2.5 Turkish Apricots, and the Cacao Mint, Mac' Lemon and Lamington bars each contain 3.5 dates.
Yes. Our Paleo Bars are baked to a very low internal temperature of 75C. This is simply to remove all water content in order to extend the expiry date.
Our Paleo Bars have been tested to have a use by date of over 24 months, when stored at room temperature out of direct sunlight. They are packed in an Oxygen-proof barrier plastic, and are flushed with Nitrogen so as to remove all Oxygen from the packet.
In addition to this, because our bars are baked, they have no water in them, so they are very stable, and the oils from the nuts, coconut and coconut oil prevent any bacteria from growing.
We take all care in manufacturing our Paleo Bars; every ingredient we use is put through a metal detector, X-rayed, and checked by eye for date pits and nut shell pieces, however, as per the warning on our packets, there is a chance that date pits, date pit fragments or nut shell pieces may remain. We are constantly working to improve our products and source the highest quality ingredients available. Due to the nature of producing a completely natural bar made from only real food ingredients, it is nearly impossible to completely avoid date pits and shell pieces occasionally making their way into our Paleo Bars.
Yes! Blue Dinosaur Paleo Bars are manufactured in Australia by an Australian owned and operated company.
Our Paleo Bars are not designed to be a protein bar or meal replacement, they're simply real, good food, so you can have one for breakfast, as an afternoon snack, or even for dessert! They will provide you with plenty of natural energy and good fats, so are suitable to have before or after a workout as well. (Feel free to blend one into your smoothie too!)
If your order is placed by 4pm Mon - Fri it will be dispatched the following business day, however if it is placed later than this it may not be dispatched until 2 business days later. I.e. If you place your order at 11am on Monday, it will be dispatched Tuesday. However, if you place your order at 9pm Thursday, it may not be dispatched until the following Monday.
We use Australia Post eParcel for most orders. This is a 2-5 day service nationwide, however at certain times of the year it can go beyond this due to high volumes of deliveries. We recommend allowing up to 10 business days for deliveries. For larger orders we use other couriers (Toll, TNT, Star Track etc), and their delivery times can vary from overnight (Sydney metro) to 10 business days (interstate).
We are unable to ever guarantee deliveries within a certain time frame as we are relying on third party couriers. Please see our terms and conditions of sale for full details.
You can buy Paleo Bars from our online store; or you can check out your nearest stockist to purchase individual bars. We also attend and sponsor many events each year where we sell our products. We currently sell our products in Australia and New Zealand, as well as a few places in Asia, however we have plans to expand further internationally shortly.
