Unibar Chocolate Cherry


The One Protein Bar Right 4 Your Type


Developed by Dr. Peter D'Adamo, author of Eat Right 4 Your Type, the Chocolate Cherry Unibar is nutritious, pocket-sized snack suitable for all blood types (including secretor and non-secretor). This wheat- and gluten-free bar is kosher and is a delicious bar to enjoy when you need a burst of energy between meals or as a healthy and quick meal replacement.


The Chocolate Cherry Unibar contains 15 grams of protein so it metabolizes slowly and has a satisfying chocolate taste that any chocolate-lover will crave. It is made from the purest, natural food ingredients and is sweetened by nature with organic Agave Nectar. It is suitable for all blood types (including secretor and non-secretor,) and does not contain processed sweeteners or refined sugar.

Allergy Information. This product contains Tree Nuts (Almond) and Egg. Good manufacturing practices are used to segregate ingredients in a facility that processes other products, which may contain peanuts, tree nuts, wheat (gluten), milk, soy, and/or eggs.

Agave Syrup.  Organic agave syrup is a natural product that can sweeten any type of beverage or food. It is derived from the carbohydrates present in the agave plant through a totally natural thermal (heat) process with no chemicals involved. To produce organic agave syrup, juice is expressed from the core of the agave (the piña). The juice is then selected to become dark agave syrup or is filtered to create light agave syrup. The unfiltered dark liquid contains many minerals and retains a natural and unique flavor, with a slight hint of a vanilla-like aroma. The light has the natural solids removed through a fine filtration process, creating a liquid that can be used in recipes that require a more neutral base that can be colored. As with the creation of all agave syrups, the light and dark liquids are then heated, causing thermal hydrolysis, which breaks down the carbohydrates into, sugars. The main carbohydrate is a complex form of fructose called inulin or fructosan. The filtered juice is concentrated to a syrup-like liquid a little thinner than honey. Fructose is a simple sugar found mainly in fruits and vegetables. A smaller amount of agave syrup yields the same sweetness but fewer calories than sucrose. This gives agave syrup advantages in both the food industry and the health of the consumer.

Almonds.  Almonds are a vitamin E-dense food source providing the form of vitamin E, alpha-tocopherol, that the body prefers. About 98 percent of the vitamin E in almonds is alpha-tocopherol, which is efficiently absorbed and active as an antioxidant in the body. The USDA technical report emphasizes that beans and dried peas fit into two food groups—the meat and beans group and the vegetables group – since beans are a good source of protein and vitamins and minerals such as iron and zinc. Almonds are also a good source of protein and dietary fiber and offer zinc. As a plant source of protein, almonds have similar nutritional advantages as beans. This also supports the FDA’s recent announcement to encourage consumption of protein sources such as nuts.
One ounce is a good source of protein and dietary fiber and an excellent source of magnesium. Almonds also supply calcium, phosphorus, zinc, manganese, copper and vitamin B6. In addition, one ounce of nutrient packed almonds contains 160 calories and research demonstrates that people can add an ounce of almonds to their usual healthful eating without gaining weight.

Rice Protein Concentrate.  This ingredient adds more blood type friendly protein to this bar.

Egg White Protein.  This product is kosher and adds more protein to the bar

Cherry.  Ojibwa Indians treated coughs and colds with tea made from the bark of wild cherry (Prunus serotina and Prunus virginiana). Cherry stalk tea is a diuretic and is thought to cure kidney diseases. Tests on rats and mice indicate that a compound in cherry stalk extract (Novicardin) may reduce inflammation caused by caustic materials if administered 30-60 minutes before the inflammation is induced. This is consistent with known anti-inflammatory activities of flavonoids, which are similar to compounds found in cherry stalks. Phloretin is an antibiotic-like compound found in bark and root extracts; in concentrated form, Phloretin can kill certain bacteria.

Researchers in Michigan have found that tart cherries, one of the parental species of dwarf cherries, contain compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Cherries have been linked to beneficial health effects in that cherry growers, who eat six times the amount of cherries as the average American, have a lower incidence of cancer and heart conditions. The most active antioxidant compounds in the cherry fruit are superior to vitamins E and C and some synthetic antioxidants. The same researchers have speculated that the natural antioxidants in cherry fruit could be extracted for use in food processing. It is interesting to note that these superior antioxidants in tart cherries are anthocyanins that are associated with the bright red color.

Scientists also found that compounds from tart cherry fruit have anti-inflammatory properties which support anecdotal information that tart cherries may relieve the pain of gout and arthritis. Cherries are neutral for blood type B secretors and Beneficial for all other blood types.

Unsweetened Chocolate and Cocoa Powder.  The word "chocolate" comes from the Aztec xocolatl, meaning "bitter water." Indeed, the unsweetened drink the Aztecs made of pounded cocoa beans and spices was probably extremely bitter. Bitterness notwithstanding, the Aztec king Montezuma so believed that chocolate was an aphrodisiac that he purportedly drank 50 golden goblets of it each day. Chocolate comes from the tropical cocoa bean, Theobroma ("food of the gods") cacao U.S. standards require that unsweetened chocolate contain between 50 and 58 percent cocoa butter.

Rice Bran.  Rice bran contains 21% fiber, 21% lipids, 13% amino acids, and a wide variety of vitamins and minerals. Most of the fiber in rice bran is insoluble. Diets high in fiber have resulted in lower insulin levels, less weight gain, and a reduction in cardiovascular disease risk factors such as hypertension. Orally rice bran has been used for increasing energy, enhancing athletic performance, strengthening the immune system and as an antioxidant. Rice bran can increase stool size and scientists think increased fecal bulk reduces risk of cancer because it dilutes carcinogens, especially tumor promoters such as secondary bile acids.
