Everyone’s different and so are Rush bars. Whether you’re training, doing endurance sports, pregnant, on-the-run with no time to eat or you have kids who need a quick energy burst to fuel their adventures, Rush has a bar for you!
As pioneers in the raw, free-from nutrition space in South Africa Rush would like to be responsible for influencing people to alter their nutritional intake to raw, natural ingredients that are a healthier alternative to snacks and energy products.
Rush was created by Lara Mare van Niekerk, a working mom who, through her nutritional studies came to realise the importance of nutrition in combating diseases ranging from cancers and chronic fatigue to adrenal failure and ADHD and Gavin Memper, a qualified chef and avid sportsman who knows first-hand the benefits of a plant-based, superfood diet in transforming one’s body and mind.
Their overarching obsession is to turn the tide on chronic disease by transforming the food system to one that is clean, predominantly plant-based, transparent and healthy.
What’s particularly awesome about Rush bars is that they each have a unique nutritional profile for specific needs. They produces a range of a range of raw, free-from, proudly African wholefood solutions designed to fuel adventure and health rather than addiction and disease. The range has something for athletes, people too busy to eat, pregnant and breastfeeding women and young children who need natural energy for their lively bodies and minds.
All Rush bars are:
- Preservative free

This is a superfood snack fix that is high protein with no added sugar, is gluten-free, raw and vegan, in two yummy flavours that are good to the nut butter core!
