FAQs

What makes RTI Loaves and Big Bites different from other nutritional snacks and gluten-free bars on the market?

The biggest differentiator is the low sugar content.  While we cater to the market that is very health conscious and may have a restrictive diet (no gluten, no dairy, non-GMO) our calorie to sugar ratio is very low.
