What are adaptogens?

When we talk about adaptogens, we’re referring to non-toxic plants and fungi that help us respond to stress. 

For a more official response, we’ll default to the dictionary; The Miriam Webster dictionary defines an adaptogen as “a nontoxic substance and especially a plant extract that is held to increase the body's ability to resist the damaging effects of stress and promote or restore normal physiological functioning.”

What are superfoods?

Our answer: Superfoods are foods that are packed with great-for-you nutrients and compounds, like antioxidants. Some examples – and some of our favorite ingredients – are goji berries, blueberries, almonds, and cacao.  

The Miriam Webster dictionary’s answer: “a food (such as salmon, broccoli, or blueberries) that is rich in compounds (such as antioxidants, fiber, or fatty acids) considered beneficial to a person's health.”

Do the adaptogenic herbs, superfoods and mushrooms make the bars taste weird?

If you taste them on their own, yes, some of them will taste a little weird, bitter, or earthy. But mixed in with our bars, we can’t taste them at all. 

This is actually one of the reasons we wanted to make these bars; to find a way to incorporate adaptogenic mushrooms and herbs into our diets without sacrificing flavor. It took a lot of test batches and recipe refinements to get here, but it was all worth it!

Do your bars contain sugar?

No. Our bars are sweetened with organic dates.

Are your bars vegan?

Yes!

Are your bars organic?

Yes!

Do your bars contain nuts?

Yes, they do. Specifically, they contain cashews, almonds, and coconuts.

Fun fact: in addition to being fruits, coconuts are technically a type of tree nut.

Are your bars gluten-free?

Yes, they are!

Are your bars grain-free?

Yes, they are!

How long are your bars good for?

Our bars are good for 6 months from the day they’re made.  You’ll find the sell-by date on the back of the package. 

Are your bars safe if I have a medical condition?

We are not doctors and are not equipped to give medical advice. If you have a medical condition, please consult your doctor.

Are your bars safe for kids?

Our resident herbalist is a mother and she selected the herbs, mushrooms, and dosages with families in mind. That said, we are not doctors. If your kid has a medical condition, or you have any doubts, we’d recommend consulting your physician.

Are your bars safe for pregnant people?

We are not doctors and are not equipped to give medical advice. If you are pregnant and have doubts about our ingredients, please consult your doctor.

Why “Yoe”?

Because that’s where our bars are made; Yoe, Pennsylvania! And because it’s fun to say.

How is “Yoe!” pronounced?

“Yo!”

 

About orders, shipping, and returns:

When will my order arrive?

Most orders ship within two business days (we do not ship on holidays or weekends). When we hand your box over to UPS or USPS you should receive a shipping confirmation email with tracking information. If three or more business days have passed since you placed your order and you still haven’t received a shipping confirmation, contact us and we’ll get you squared away.

Do you offer expedited shipping?

Not yet.

Do you ship internationally?

Unfortunately, not yet! For now, we’re only shipping within the continental US.

What makes your shipments carbon-neutral?

With help from Offset and Pachama, we are able to calculate and offset the CO2  emissions from each shipment. 

The Offset app automatically calculates the CO2  emissions based on the weight of your order, the distance it has to travel to get to you, and the type of transportation used. It rounds up to make sure our shipping emissions are fully offset. Through Pachama, the money we pay for offsets helps fund “forest carbon projects, preserving and growing millions of hectares of forest worldwide.” (You can learn more about Pachama here.)

What should I do with the box after I’m done with it?

Please reuse or recycle it.

Can I change my order after it’s placed?

Unfortunately, no. We try to process orders as soon as possible and, as a result, are unable to accept changes post-order.

What’s your return/refund policy?

We can not accept returns. However, if you’re not satisfied with your purchase we want to hear about it and will see what can be done on a case by case basis. Please contact us at hello@yoesuperfoods.com if that is the case.
