Did you know that 70% of your immune system response starts in your gut? 

Help introduce this new MicroBiome Bar to the world and you'll get a convenient way to get the pre-biotic fibers you need to keep your gut healthy and your immune system strong, all at an awesome discounted price.

OUR PREBIOTIC JOURNEY

Food First is a family-run business that has pioneered a fermented prebiotic and protein mix made from organic wheat, oats, barley malt and flax meal. 

This multi-prebiotic blend -- called ProBiotein -- gives you the pre-biotic fibers you need for helpful probiotics to flourish in your gut.

At Food First, we've been mixing ProBiotein with nuts, berries, honey and grains to create a great-tasting gut health bar, called the MicroBiome Bar.

The MicroBiome Bar currently comes in three delicious flavors: Razz-Apple Almond, Choco-Cherry Walnut, and P-Nutty Cranberry. 

We're always looking for new ways to make our MicroBiome Bars deliver more health benefits and be even more delicious. 

One day, we thought, hey, what about making a bar with saskatoons? 

What's a Saskatoon, you ask?  Please allow us to introduce you!

Saskatoon berries grow wild in forests and coulees throughout Canada and they have a higher level of anthocyanins than most berries. Despite their strong antioxidant power, you won't find them in many stores because they aren't easy to grow commercially.  

When we learned that the folks at Interlake Saskatoon in Manitoba had an improved method to cultivate and harvest Saskatoon berries, we knew we had to create a new flavor that will let you benefit from this super fruit. 

YOU can help us make our most immunity-boosting flavor yet! We're not stopping with Saskatoons, because we figured ...

Featuring Saskatoons, blueberries and aronia berries and a delicious dash of sunflower butter, our new SUNNY-SASKATOON BERRY bar will be packed with antioxidants and high in fiber power.

With your help, we can import and process the Saskatoon berries from Canada and create an even more beneficial MicroBiome Bar flavor for you.

Taste the coolest super fruit out there! Just pick a level and load up on prebiotic-packed bars that are great for your gut health and your overall immunity. 

 PICK A LEVEL

Do you run a small business where you could carry MicroBiome bars? Check out the "Gut Health Guru" level.

Are you really serious about improving your gut health? Choose one of the top two levels and you'll get a ton of bars, plus a three-month supply of raw ProBiotein. 

Have you been thinking about getting your microbiome evaluated? If you want to be "Our Berry Best Friend," we'll pay for you to get a "before" and "after" gut health evaluation. (See the level descriptions at right for details.)

Risks and challenges

Bringing this new flavor to life requires importing a unique ingredient from another country for production in the U.S. This can present problems and time delays, at least initially. However, we have successfully launched two other flavors with ingredients sourced from Canada. Food First is located right at the Canadian border, and as we have experienced in the past, being able to deal in-person with regulatory personnel helps resolve problems far easier than from a distance.

Another issue is simply the “newness” of prebiotic awareness versus probiotics and ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) levels to highlight antioxidant values. General public awareness of these items is still limited but growing fast. We believe the availability of the new SUNNY-SASKATOON BERRY MicroBiome Bar will help advance the public awareness in both areas.
