EATVIVE.com | Frequently Asked Questions
Way back in 1876, Alexander Graham Bell filed a patent for what we call the telephone. Fast forward all these years later and we're still using his invention on a daily basis, so before reading our Eatvive FAQs, pay homage to Mr Bell and feel free to pick up your phone and give us a call on: 020 3243 2097. Here at The BeeVive we're honestly rather friendly and interesting and we won't bite - we only bite our delicious eat vive bars.
Whether they're about our Vive protein powder, Vive protein bars or what you think the best vegan protein is out there in the market, your calls are always welcome here at The BeeVive! (Just please don't ask us about Brexit - we're all Brexited out)!
If you don't have access to a phone or you're reading this at work (don't worry, we won't snitch), search below for your question regarding our healthy vegan snacks and protein or simply drop us an e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to answer as soon as possible.
THERE ARE SOOO MANY “HEALTHY VEGAN SNACKS AND PROTEIN BARS” AVAILABLE NOW, WHAT MAKES THE VIVE PROTEIN BAR DIFFERENT?
Quite simply, the taste. Here at The BeeVive, we know that you don't want to choose between health and taste, you want them both, right?
Like you, we've also struggled through the dry, dense taste of many a vegan protein bar without actually enjoying it so we thought we'd go about changing that. As one protein bar aficionado (possibly the most conscientious protein bar customer in the UK) recently said, 'Vive have, honest to goodness, perfected the 'protein bar as delicious dessert' concept. I would bet on them to crush any taste-test opposition'.
So, what are you waiting for? Give us a try and if you know a better protein bar out there, let us know because we'd love to try it!
BUT IF VIVE BARS ARE VEGAN, ARE THEY REALLY THAT NICE?
We’re all for a plant-based diet at the The BeeVive and but we know that vegan often stands for bland, tasteless or over-priced food. Our bars are 100% vegan-friendly and contain only protein derived from natural plant sources but that doesn't mean they have to taste like rubbish. In fact, if you find a tastier vegan protein bar out there, we'll be vivery surprised!
The whole reason we created Vive was to not only to contribute a positive impact on your health, but also because we care about animal welfare, the environment and about making a vegan lifestyle accessible and attractive to more people. But fear not, you don't have to be vegan to enjoy our bars, they're also a really big hit with non-vegans looking for a healthier, natural alternative to their favourite chocolate bar.
HOW ARE YOUR BARS ALL NATURAL AND WHAT DOES NATURAL MEAN?
Unlike many of the other high-protein products out there in the market, we don't use any artificial ingredients, naturally. No additives, no artificial flavourings, no artificial sweeteners. Only, wholly natural ingredients that come from natural sources and not from laboratories.
I HAVE SEEN VIVE PROTEIN BARS ARE COATED IN DARK CHOCOLATE, BUT HOW IS THAT A HEALTHY SNACK?
We haven’t only seen it, but we’ve eaten it. Many times (and yes, it’s incredible!). We only use a premium 74% Belgian dark chocolate that has a number of health benefits over its milk-chocolate rival. Dark chocolate is proven to have significant mood-boosting qualities, can even help boost cholesterol and even lower blood pressure. We coat each bar with just a thin, delicate coating of dark chocolate to provide a delicious snap to each bite without being unhealthy or overly-sweet, helping us to make our protein bars delicious AND naturally good for you.
ENOUGH ABOUT WHAT ISN'T IN A VIVE BAR, WHAT IS IN EACH BAR THEN?
Lots of tasty, natural and premium real food ingredients. As well as the 10g of natural plant protein that comes from our signature pea/rice protein blend and our crispy protein pieces, we've worked hard to include only the finest, healthiest ingredients. Take our Peruvian cocoa butter that provides a melt-in-the-mouth texture combined with the whole roasted nut pieces provide a satisfying crunch. We also use a completely natural peanut or hazelnut butter (depending on what bar you have) and a natural flavouring to give our scrumptious Salted Caramel bar a truly tasty twist.
I REGULARLY SUFFER FROM ‘HANGER’. WILL VIVE PROTEIN BARS KEEP ME FULL?
You are not alone. Hanger affects approximately 10 in 10 people and can strike suddenly between meals. Vive bars are effective remedies for hanger as they contain only natural ingredients and are packed with 10g of vegan plant protein, which helps to keep you fuller for longer and keep those hanger pains at bay. This often helps you to avoid needless calorie-adding snacking on sugary snacks that will only keep you full for a matter of minutes.
WHY ARE THERE PEAS IN YOUR EAT VIVE PROTEIN BARS? CAN YOU TASTE THEM…
Vive is all about eating clean and staying full - easy-peasy. When creating our recipe, we decided to use pea protein as it doesn’t carry the nasty side effects that other sources of protein do.
A taste of our vive protein bar will make you realise that you have been doing As for the taste? Pea protein has a neutral taste so you won’t really know it’s there! The taste of eatvive bars comes from the natural sweetness in the fruit and nuts, keeping your taste buds hapPEA the natural ‘whey’!
I OFTEN SKIP BREAKFAST, ARE VIVE BARS A GOOD ALTERNATIVE?
Hey, that’s naughty - did your mum not teach you to eat your breakfast in the morning?! Luckily, we're a forgiving bunch of busy bees at The BeeVive and we completely understand how hectic life can get so we promise not to snitch, especially if you squeeze a tasty Vive bar or two into your morning routine. Vive bars make good breakfasts, especially if you’ve got a mob of children to control, a Vive bar can be your daily ticket to sanity. Watch how much more focused you feel after waking your tummy up for the day!
SOOO, WHAT IS WITH THIS RISE IN GLUTEN-FREE PRODUCTS AND ARE YOUR PRODUCTS AT EATVIVE GLUTEN FREE?
For years, people have loved products high in refined wheat – think pizza, pasta, cakes, cookies, sandwiches and wraps. Yummy, right? Although your mouth may be watering, this diet means consuming huge amounts of gluten, not to mention carbs, which leads to bloating, cramps and is intolerable for some stomachs.
Being gluten-sensitive can be hard but we recognise the benefits of following a gluten-free diet, such as the boost in energy levels that it can provide, the improvement in digestive health and lowering of cholesterol levels which is why we’ve made all our gorgeous bars gluten free – to keep every digestive system smiling.
