Most likely, if you’re looking for a paleo bar, you want something that is gluten free, soy free and without processed unnatural ingredients. What if you could also get a bar that is:
- Dairy Free
- High in Fiber
- No Pesticides
- No Colors Added
- Made in the USA
- Produced by a Green Company

Price and Size:
Even though these bars pack a bunch of benefits, you don’t have to pay more for them than other paleo protein bars. They are well-priced for a small meal sized-bar (between 310 and 350 calories per serving) that is nutrient dense and filling. Some people could even skip breakfast with the Nude Food.
In fact, I think you get a good price deal for the money compared to some other natural snacks. A 12-pack box of 2.5oz bars costs about $33 (and you can save with free shipping). That’s comparable to many other bars on the market, and most do not offer free shipping. Some have half the calorie content.
Protein and Fat:
The amount of protein per bar runs between 8 grams and 10 grams. Not super high, but not bad for a portable snack you can hold in your hand. Good for keeping you satiated and can work as an after-workout alternative if you don’t happen to have a protein shake laying around.
There is, however, a high amount of fat (20 grams+) in each bar. Some people don’t like this, so just be aware. I personally don’t have a problem with it and prefer higher-fat options to lower fat snacks. In fact, I eat a high-fat diet because I end up being full and eating less calories at the end of the day anyway.
The fat is good fat, by the way. It’s mainly from nuts, seeds and coconut flour. It’s all natural, and I guess you could also say it’s nude too.
These are not low-carb bars. Their higher fiber content adds to the carb count, but they also contain sweeteners. They are mainly sweetened with either can sugar, dates or date syrup – natural ingredients, but if you want to avoid sugar, you may prefer the PaleoBar or PaleoLife Bar, coming in at 1 gram and 2 grams net carbs per bar.
On the other hand, having healthy sweet “treats” available can come in handy when your sweet tooth tells you it wants a bunch of cookies or some ice cream. Have one of these bars, and you won’t feel like binge-eating on a bunch of processed junk.
