Philosophy

EPIC is a protein bar consistent with the powerful diets of our ancestors and deep-rooted evolutionary biology. By harvesting the primal power of animal based protein, EPIC bars are loaded with anti-inflammatory omega-3’s, muscle-building conjugated linoleic acid, and antioxidant rich vitamins A and E. When it comes to EPIC nutrition, EPIC bars are truly a different animal.

EPIC animals

EPIC foods begin with a living animal. We set the industry standards by sourcing our meats from ranchers that we deem EPIC. We mandate proof of certifications, which validate that our animals receive the utmost humane treatment. We believe that EPIC animals should always live pasture centered lives where turkeys forage, pigs wallow, and buffalo roam. This is the way Nature intended animals to be and we see ourselves as leaders in recognizing the value of sustainable and responsible animal welfare practices.

EPIC lands

Not only do humanely-treated grass-fed animals live better, more natural lives but they place less stress on the land they inhabit. Our animals live on EPIC lands. When properly managed, grass-fed animals can produce a net benefit to the environment. Pasture grazing requires significantly less fossil fuel than a feedlot diet consisting of corn, soy, antibiotics, and hormones. Pastured animals fertilize the land they graze on, which eliminates the fossil fuels required by conventional fertilizing practices.  Lastly, grass filled fields not only hold on to top soil and moisture but also more effectively remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than any other use of land!

EPIC health

Perhaps the most compelling argument for consuming grass-fed meats comes from the EPIC nutrition that is passed on from animal to human. The brilliance of this nutrient transfer is based on how the animals are raised.  Grass-fed animals are loaded with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which are better for both cardiovascular health and contain anti-inflammatory properties. They also have significantly higher values of vitamins A and E as well as antioxidants.

For athletes, grass-fed meat is particularly favorable in that it holds up to twice the levels of conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, which promotes the development of lean muscle tissue and lowers the risk for a myriad of other health problems. Pastured animals also contain lower levels of unhealthy fats and dietary cholesterol compared to conventionally raised feedlot animals. When it comes to EPIC nutrition, EPIC bars are truly a different animal.

EPIC taste

By combining delicious tasting and lightly smoked animal protein with savory nuts and dehydrated fruits, EPIC foods taste amazing! EPIC foods are unique in the sense that they are more savory, tender, and flavor-forward than jerky without the high carbohydrate and sugar load of other bars.  Reconnect with your ancestral diets and enjoy every bite of it!

Be EPIC, Eat EPIC.
