Product Snapshot: Nth Degree Snacks are wholesome snacks made with amaranth (aka amaraNth), honey, pumpkin seeds, and more superfoods. Amaranth is a tiny seed packed with nutrition, and our organic and non-GMO bars are a healthy twist on alegría, a popular Mexican snack made with amaranth and honey.

They are not just another snack bar—they are a husband-and-wife team who want to change the way Americans eat with the goodness of amaranth. Omar is from Mexico City and grew up eating alegría, which inspired Natasha to start making her own version with more superfoods and less sugar. They created Nth Degree Snacks to share our bars with everyone.

Their mission is to make amaranth your new favorite food. They are passionate about amaranth because it’s the trifecta of foods: delicious, nutritious, and sustainable. It’s one of the world’s oldest foods and was a staple crop to the Aztecs. It’s one of the only plant-based foods that’s a complete protein, and it’s naturally gluten-free. On top of its health benefits, amaranth is resilient to drought and high temperatures—and is a proud member of 1 percent for the Planet.

The bars are certified organic and non-GMO, and are naturally gluten-free, nut-free*, soy-free, dairy-free, and egg-free. They have 5g plant-based protein, 8g fiber, 130 calories, and 7g sugar or less per bar. Available in Cocoa Nibs and Matcha flavors.

As Americans increasingly seek out foods that suit their dietary and lifestyle needs, it’s time to take snacking to the next level with Nth Degree Snacks.
