Why Choose Odyssey?
You shouldn’t have to choose between healthy or fast when it comes to nutritional snacks. In a perfect world, you would always have fresh veggies/fruits in a cooler ready to eat, but that would be a pain to prep and lug around. Most protein bars today aren’t great for your digestive health, cause bloating, and contain processed ingredients. Luckliy, we are here to help!
ODYSSEY supports your digestive health with a little something called prebiotic fiber. Our bars also contain all natural sugar and zero sugar alcohols. Keep that fake stuff outta here. And to top it all off, they have amazing taste thanks to the real flavor they get from the real foods we put in them. Sounds pretty great, right?

My whole family loves to eat these protein bars! They are delicious & so healthy. This is what my teen son eats before his workouts or in between back to back baseball games when he needs energy & doesn’t have time for a meal. These are perfect! Thank you!

This is my husbands favorite bar of all time hands down! Over the years we have bought so many different protein bars and this is the favorite! We just bought three boxes so we don’t run out! The mocha flavor is front and center and the chocolate and crunch round out the taste perfectly and make it nice and chewy!

Meet The Mind Behind Our Bars
Our founder, Dr. Jen, is a chiropractor who practices with her husband in the Las Vegas Area. She has over two decades of experience treating patients who suffer from pain and inflammation. From her and her clients’ struggles with digestion and food sensitivities she created an all-natural, gluten-free, and super delicious protein bar.
In 2005, after years of struggling with digestive issues, Dr. Jen was diagnosed with gluten sensitivity. Gluten is the protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and triticale. Millions of Americans have gluten sensitivity and the more serious condition, celiac disease. Common symptoms of gluten sensitivity include bloating, abdominal pain, nausea, headaches, fatigue, joint pain, and brain fog.
After her diagnosis, Dr. Jen spent years studying labels and searching for healthy snacks that were free of gluten and still tasted appetizing. This can be a big challenge for many people diagnosed with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.
Determined to fill this void, Dr. Jen decided to create a nutrient-dense snack that was gluten-free, good for digestive health, and even more important: DELICIOUS. It had to be all-natural and high in fiber and protein. She wanted to make something without fake chemicals and preservatives, instead made with ingredients you can pronounce. Something low in sugar but not filled with sugar alcohols.
Her idea for a gut-healthy protein bar led to the creation of the Odyssey Prebiotic Protein Bar. Dr. Jen’s desire is to share the relief that she’s felt from her bars with as many consumers as possible.

What’s the difference between prebiotics and probiotics?
Your digestive system has bacteria, but that’s a good thing! We need good, living bacteria in our gut microbiome to help with digestion, and that’s what probiotics are—good, living bacteria in your digestive tract. Like any living organism, probiotics need to be fed to survive. Prebiotics are food for probiotics. One is no good without the other. You could say that eating probiotics without eating prebiotics will have the same effect as buying a goldfish and never feeding it.
What are sugar alcohols and why doesn’t Odyssey use them?
Sugar alcohols are chemically-extracted synthetic sweeteners that are derived from natural and unnatural sources. Sounds… appetizing? They can have 25-100% of the sweetness that exist in natural sugars, but they have much fewer calories, which is why they are so popular. The FDA has determined sugar alcohols as “generally recognized as safe”, which is short for “these haven’t been around long enough for us to know what the long-term effects are”.Like prebiotics, sugar alcohols aren’t digestible and are fermented in the intestine. Unlike prebiotics, sugar alcohols provide no benefit to your good gut bacteria, and the fermenting that occurs is often experienced as gas and bloating. Gross. Which is why Odyssey abstains from any sugars that aren’t from natural sources, such as fruit, so your gut can process what is real and not deal with the fake stuff.
Why does Odyssey put fiber in its products?
On average, Americans get less than one-third of the FDA daily recommended amount of fiber. Nearly 1 in 10 have been diagnosed with some kind of bowel disease. Introducing biodiversity (eating different varieties of plants and prebiotics) will improve digestive and microbiome health. With your busy schedule, it’s hard to remember how much celery and carrots you need to eat, so we at Odyssey wanted to make it simpler for you to introduce more fiber and prebiotics to your diet.
What types of fiber does Odyssey use?
We use soluble fibers in our bars. Our favorite is Chicory Root and it’s found in all of our bars currently. Chicory Root is shown to have incredible benefits acting as a great prebiotic.
