The GFB

    OverviewSuggest Edit

    The GFB owns and operates its own sustainable, certified gluten-free facility in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This means it is able to pay closer attention to quality than an outsourced manufacturing process allows, which includes our commitment to small-batch production and meticulous care for everything with our name on it.

    It makes healthy snacks much like you would in your own kitchen, only in slightly larger quantities (and a little more frequently). It all starts with a scale and a mixer for our ingredients. Then several dedicated employees watch carefully to ensure that each recipe comes out just right. The results speak for themselves: the tastiest healthy snacks on the market today.

    Letter From The Founder #3: Kids Eat the Darndest Things...

    As many parents know, getting your kids to eat healthy...or just eat...can be a real challenge. Many times, even pizza and chicken tenders are often scoffed at and pushed aside. It can seem as if nothing makes sense...they may love apples, but dislike chocolate...and sometimes it changes day to day.…

    Letter From The Founder #2: How Problems Can Create Opportunities

    Hello! It has been about six weeks since our last blog post where we discussed innovation and unintended consequences. In case you missed it, we started putting a coconut, peanut, or almond topping on our bars and we made some mistakes in rolling this out which created some very understandable frust…

    Letter from The Founder #1: Innovation and Unintended Consequences

     This is me wondering what to do after buying our first mixer in 2011. Hello! First of all, thank you for being part of The GFB family - whether it’s been one day or seven years, you are the reason that we exist and we are truly grateful for each and every one of you.

Due to a chemical reaction caused by the dropping of blood-glucose levels, our emotions rise and our hunger is revealed. Hunger meets angry, and hange…

    Tips from Endurance Athletes on the Importance of Persisting

    Ask any endurance athlete and they’ll tell you a huge part of what they do is mental. Of course, training and nutrition are crucial to having a successful race—or a big day in the mountains—but if you’re not prepared to stick with it, the trip is over before it’s really even begun. Whether you’re r…

    The Dog Days

    Photo: Erik Schulte By: Erik Schulte Through the bug splattered windshield of my truck I could make out a sign on the dark side of the road that read Lamoille Canyon 15 Miles. “We’re never going to get there,” I thought to myself. I refocused my vision on the weak beam of my truck’s headlights, and…
