QUESTIONS YOU ASKED US MOST

  • Why is it called Human Food?

    Human Food contains no artificial flavours or sweeteners, no added sugar, and no synthetic nutrients. It contains only organic whole-foods and whole-food extracts which have always been part of the human diet. Also, Human Food has been made specifically to support a plant-based diet, making it easy to live in a healthy, sustainable and humane way.
  • What does Human Food taste of?

    While Human Food has been formulated primarily to enhance health and well-being, we’ve also taken care to make sure it tastes good. 20 wholefoods have been carefully selected and finely balanced to create a taste so complex it’s always interesting, and so smooth it's hard to say what the flavour is, except to say it’s delicious. This is so Human Food stays enjoyable every day, and so smoothies can be flavoured by adding different fruits.
  • Will I be charged for delivery?

    Delivery is free in the UK for all subscriptions of 20 bars or over. Overseas deliveries are charged at cost but for subscriptions of over 20 bars the delivery cost is reduced by the price of UK delivery, so while overseas delivery is not free it is subsidised.
  • Why is the price £3.30 a bar?

    Human Food is made of the best organic ingredients, including whole daily amounts of functional ingredients (including Hulled Hemp Seeds, Cacao, Ginseng and Maca). We made Human Food as good as possible and then worked out a fair price per bar, which is less than the high-street cost of the ingredients.
  • Does Human Food contain synthetic vitamins?

    No. Human Food contains 100% food derived nutrients, which are complete with essential phytonutrients required for optimal absorption and use in the body. Read more here about natural v synthetic nutrients.
  • Is the packaging biodegradable?

    Yes. 100% of our packaging is compostable. And all of our packaging (except for the wrappers) is recyclable and made from recycled paper. The wrappers are made of FSC paper and a compostable foil laminate, which is 100% compostable but not yet recyclable.
  • Can I split up my order so I can try all 3 bars?

    Yes. We can make up any combination of bars you like. And preferences can be easily adjusted in your subscription settings, right up until the day each order is packed.
  • Are the seeds ground, split or powdered before bars are made?

    No. In order to protect against oxidization (which causes degradation in taste and nutrition) all of the seeds in Human Food are included whole. However, some breakage will occur during the mixing and bar forming process.
  • How many bars a day?

    We recommend 1 bar of Human Food a day - either eaten as a bar, drunk in a smoothie, or broken up into Bircher, muesli or porridge. However, there is no reason why you cannot eat 2, 3 or even 4 bars a day.
  • What countries do you deliver to?

    We offer delivery to every country in the World.
  • Can't find your questions?

  • What's the difference in taste between the bars?

    All 3 bars have been developed to have a smooth, non-specific, delicious taste. The Green bar has a subtle, just-detectable flavour of Spirulina. The Yellow bar has a just-noticeable spiciness from Turmeric. And the Red bar has a slightly more fruity flavour from Goji Berries.
  • What's the difference in nutrition between the bars?

    All 3 bars have very similar nutritional profiles. The key difference between bars is in terms of functional ingredients. In addition to Ginseng (200mg) , Maca (500mg) and Cacao (3g) the Green bar contains Spirulina (2g), the Yellow bar contains Turmeric (500mg), and the Red bar contains Goji Berries (8g). Please see the Bars page for more info.
  • Does human food contain all the nutrition I need?

    No. Human Food contains 100% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin B12, and at least 50% of other key nutrients that can be difficult to obtain from a plant-based diet (including Iron, Calcium, Vitamin D and Omega 3). Human Food provides a solid nutritional base from which it is easy to complete an optimal diet.
  • Are there maximum and minimum purchases for subscription?

    Subscriptions can be set on 10 to 100 bars per month. Plus, it is possible to easily change the next dispatch date up until the day before the order is packed.
  • How do I dispose of the compostable wrappers?

    Human Food wrappers are TUV certified “100% Home Compostable”. Please dispose of wrappers either with household food waste or in your home compost.
  • How do I get the physical newsletter?

    All subscribers receive a free copy of the newsletter with their monthly order. It is not possible to purchase the newsletter in any other way. Please send any contributions to the newsletter to editor@humanfood.bio.
  • Can I buy human food bars without subscribing?

    Yes. You can purchase a Taster Pack (3 bars) a 2 Week Trial (10 bars) or you can make a One-Off Purchase for anything between 10 - 500 bars.
  • Will I have to pay import duty?

    It may be necessary to pay import duty for people living in Switzerland or Canada only. In order to calculate the potential amount of duty please make selections within the shop so that our system can make the calculation.
  • Why is human food organic?

    Human Food is the world’s first Daily Nutrition Bar (or meal replacement) to be certified EU organic. We believe this is important primarily because: 1) Organic food has higher levels of nutrients vs non-organic food 2) Organic certification precludes the use of artificial preservatives, flavours and sweeteners and fortification with synthetic nutrients. 3) Organic is better for the environment - no method of farming does more to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect natural environments.
