Ingredients Grown, Not Made

If it didn’t come from nature, we don’t put it in our products.

We believe that natural food that is closer to the earth and less processed is healthier for the body and soul. That’s why we carefully select fresh, wholesome and delicious ingredients for all of our GoMacro products. We source 100% plant-based ingredients from organic and non-GMO certified growers who follow sustainable farming practices. Our nutritious and delicious snacks serve as the perfect way to keep you fueled throughout the day.

All of our ingredients are Certified Organic, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Kosher, non-GMO, R.A.W., C.L.E.A.N. and delicious!
