Libre Naturals Inc. was created by the parents of a food allergic child.  As such, we strive to be clear about the ingredients and protocols we use.

We want you to feel comfortable about choosing any Libre Naturals product.  If you have any questions about our lines or allergens, please feel free to contact us toll free at 1-866-714-5411 or by email


While no reputable manufacturer can 100% guarantee a level of zero risk, we have created strict allergen protocols to offer you products you can trust:

  • All ingredient suppliers must provide written declarations about what the top 14 allergens/gluten are in their products and facilities as well as their protocols including product handling and staff training
  • We conduct multiple food allergen/gluten tests on incoming raw ingredients plus random finished product testing using verified scientific procedures
  • We have strict shipping and receiving policies including tracing and tracking all ingredients
  • Staff training and contracts ensure that everyone from the office to shipping understands the severity of food allergies.  In fact, the entire Libre Naturals facility and grounds, including our lunch room, is peanut and tree nut free.
  • All products are manufactured and/or packaged in our own dedicated facility
  • The Libre Naturals facility is 3rd party certified SQF Level 2 under the Global Food Safety Intitiative (GFSI) standard which includes audited allergen control and training programs


No dairyNo ingredients containing dairy are used in the Libre Naturals facility. This includes all derivatives such as casein or whey. Cocoa butter is not dairy but is the fat of the cocoa bean.



No eggNo ingredients containing egg are used in the Libre Naturals facility.



No fishNo ingredients containing fish are used in the Libre Naturals facility.



No glutenNo ingredients containing gluten are used in the Libre Naturals facility.  All of our products are certified Gluten Free by the Gluten Free Certification Organization (GFCO) which has a standard of 10 parts per million (ppm), more stringent than the national standard of 20 ppm.


No mustardNo ingredients containing mustard are used in the Libre Naturals facility.



No peanutsNo ingredients containing peanut are used in the Libre Naturals facility.



No sesameNo ingredients containing sesame are used in the Libre Naturals facility.



No shellfishNo ingredients containing shellfish (including crustaceans or molluscs) are used in the Libre Naturals facility.



No soy or derivativesNo ingredients containing soy or its derivatives (i.e. soy lecithin) are used in the Libre Naturals facility.



No sulphitesNo ingredients containing sulphite preservatives are used in the Libre Naturals facility.



No tree nutsNo ingredients containing tree nuts i.e. almonds, cashews, pecans)are used in the Libre Naturals facility.  Canada, where our manufacturing facility is located, does not list coconut as a tree nut but the USA does. In any case, we treat coconut as a tree nut declaration with all of our suppliers.


No wheatNo ingredients containing wheat are used in the Libre Naturals facility.



No latexNo latex gloves are used on any Libre Naturals production line. We use only medical grade, powder-free nitrile gloves.



All Libre Naturals granolas have flavours added to them that are indicated on the ingredient list as "natural flavour".  Please note that we do not add any additional flavours that are not already indicated in the name of the product. The kinds of flavours used are as follows:

Vanilla Cinnamon Granola: Vanilla

Vanilla Caramel Granola: Vanilla

Blueberry Maple Granola: Maple

Additionally, we closely adhere to all food allergen labeling regulations and would declare any of the top 11 allergens or gluten as an allergen warning if the flavours were to contain a top food allergen or gluten.


The Libre Naturals facility is organized into two separate lines that are not separated by walls.  Manufacturing schedules are set up to minimize cross contamination between different products and/or varieties but it may not be completely avoided.  If you would like to review what ingredients we use in our facility, please check out our Ingredients page.

This declaration is accurate as of its last update on January, 2018, but may change without further notice. Please read ingredient labels and online declarations every time you purchase.

Once you've determined that our product is safe for your special dietary needs, you can take pleasure in great taste and health benefits. Here are some health reasons why you'll want to add raw sunflower seeds to your diet:

  • All plant seeds are naturally free of cholesterol
  • A 4 tablespoon serving of raw sunflower seeds makes a good vegetarian substitute for protein because it is equivalent to that of a large egg or 1 oz (28 g) of meat.
  • Sunflower is a nutritionally dense food, power-packed with protein, fibre, vitamin E, minerals, healthy fats, and phytosterols. Here are some details:
  • Zinc helps keep your immune system strong. A 1 ounce serving of sunflower provides 10% of the Daily Value.
  • Arginine, an amino acid, has potential benefits for heart health. Sunflower contains more arginine than almonds, hazelnuts or pecans.
  • Vitamin E is an antioxidant that acts as a nerve protector, enhances your immune system and reduces the effects of sun damage and wrinkles. Sunflower is the best whole food source of vitamin E, providing 76% of the Daily Value in a 1 ounce serving.
  • Thiamine, an important B vitamin for memory and cognitive function.
  • Tryptophan:  sunflower is also an excellent source of tryptophan, making sunflower a safe, natural way to relieve mild depression and insomnia.
  • Folate: A Harvard University study shows an association between a higher intake of folate and a lower risk of heart disease. Folate is also good for pregnant women because it plays an important part in making DNA and RNA in cell reproduction. One ounce of sunflower provides 17% of the Daily Value for Folate.
  • Phytosterols are plant chemicals that have been shown to reduce cholesterol levels and improve heart health. In a study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, sunflower (along with pistachios and pumpkin seeds) contained the highest levels of phytosterols among seeds and nuts commonly eaten as snack foods in the United States.
  • Keep at room temperature, approximately 20 degrees Celsius or refrigerated
  • Once opened, raw sunflower seeds are best if repackaged in an airtight container, sealed between uses and eaten within 2 weeks of opening.
  • If in a humid, hot location (above 20 degrees Celsius), raw seeds are prone to rancidity
  • This item can be frozen under normal conditions and sealed in its packaging for up to 6 months past the date of expiration
  • Alternatively, raw sunflower seeds can be repackaged in freezer safe bags/containers for freezing rather than keeping in the original packaging
  • Once re-opened at room temperature, seeds are best if eaten within 2 weeks as per above

Suggested Serving Options

  • On their own by the handful
  • Added to your morning oatmeal
  • Added to salads
  • Added to your favourite cookie recipe by replacing cup for cup the fruit/chocolate indicated in the recipe or in addition to your favourite fruit and chocolate

Standard Ground (3-10 business days)

Orders are shipped from our warehouse on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, by Canada Post expedited parcel service. The total delivery time includes the time it takes to process your order plus actual shipping time. Weekends and holidays are not included in business days.

Canada Post will only deliver to your door if you currently get door to door delivery service.  If your location is serviced by a Superbox, they may place your package in a larger box or may serve you with a notice of where to pick it up. If your location is serviced only by PO box, please do not indicate your street address as your package will be undeliverable.

All deliveries by Canada Post take place during the business day during regular business hours.  If you are not home and the driver feels it is unsafe to leave a package, a notice will be left with instructions for redelivery or a pickup location which could also include a Superbox where your items may get overheated during the summer months (freezing during winter will not harm our products).  To avoid this, we suggest you ship to an address where someone is available to receive the delivery during business hours, such as your workplace.

Fedex Air (2-3 business days)

When you choose this option, the cost for air shipping will be determined by the Fedex quote system as visible on your checkout screen. If it does not become visible as a shipping option along with the standard ground, that means Fedex Air is not available to your address. Like all couriers, Fedex cannot deliver to a PO box.

The total delivery time includes the time it takes to process your order plus air shipment time which varies depending on how close you are to our Vancouver Island warehouse and whether you are in a major city, with longer times outside of major urban areas. Weekends and holidays are not included in business days.

Free shipping minimums and/or coupons are not offered with air shipments.

Shipping Times

As noted above, orders are shipped from our warehouse on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The total delivery time includes the time it takes to process your order plus actual shipping time which will vary by your distance from our warehouse. Weekends and holidays are not included in business days.

All deliveries by Canada Post take place during the business day during regular business hours.  If you are not home and the driver feels it is unsafe to leave a package, a notice will be left with instructions for redelivery or a pickup location which could also include a Superbox.

If you order over the weekend, on a holiday or after 10 am on a business day, your order will not be processed until the next business day under normal business volume conditions.

Order Cancellation and Changes

If you need to make a change prior to shipment, please contact us toll free at 1.866.714.5411 and quote your order number. Order cancellations or changes to your order may not occur once an order has been shipped.

Change of Shipping Address

Canada Post cannot change the ship address once the shipment is en route. Once a package has arrived at the destination you provided, it will take a secondary shipment to ship to your new address. This new shipment is a separate shipping cost and you will be required to pay for it via credit card payment.

If the change of shipping is required due to our mistake, you will have your order redirected or resent to you at no charge.

Return Policy

For the safety of all Libre Naturals’ customers we do not return food items, regardless of their condition, therefore all sales at Libre Naturals are final.

Ingredients, nutrition and allergens for all Libre Naturals’ products are posted on each product's page, and it is a customer's responsibility to read and understand them, contact us to ask questions if necessary, and to select only those items that are safe for their specific diet.

Tracking Your Order

When your order is shipped from our Duncan, BC, Canada warehouse via standard ground service, the Canada Post shipping system will send you an email to confirm your shipment - this email will include a tracking number and link to enable you to track your package.

Chocolate Shipment Policy

When shipping chocolate items, there is a risk of product damage during warm weather or when shipping to warmer climates.  If you choose to ship any products that have chocolate in them, you assume the risk of this possibility when you place an order for those items with Libre Naturals Inc.

If granola bars do get overheated, the granola bars and chocolate should resume their shape if left to return to room temperature without being handled.  The heat will not  affect the taste or quality of the bars although long term shelf life may be compromised.

Any chocolate that has been heated and then cooled may get "bloom", a gray surface on the chocolate.  Bloom is not harmful and does not change the quality of the chocolate; it's simply the cocoa fat coming to the surface of the chocolate.

Damaged Shipment

With the exception of melted chocolate, if any package arrives obviously damaged, refuse the package and contact us via the directions below.  If you receive a package and don't realize there is damage until you open it or it was left damaged on your doorstep, we require pictures and a description of the type and number of damaged items.  This is necessary for us to make the damage claim with Canada Post.

Please notify us of your damaged shipment claim and all photo documentation within 24 hours of the receipt of shipment with our customer care team at 1-866-714-5411 or at info@librenaturals.com.

We will then begin the claims process with Canada Post and advise you on how we'll replace your damaged products and what to do with your damaged order.

Missing Shipment

Please allow the full shipping time indicated above to elapse before contacting us about a missing shipment unless you see by your tracking link that Canada Post has indicated a problem.  We can then work with Canada Post to track down your shipment.

If you have given permission for the driver to leave the shipment, either on the order or by a previous "no contact" agreement, Libre Naturals is not responsible for the missing shipment.  We strongly suggest that you provide a shipping address where you know someone will be present to receive shipments.  Many people choose to ship to their work address for this reason.

Special Delivery Instructions

Unfortunately, Canada Post does not accept special delivery instructions. If you add a delivery instruction on your order and we add it to the Canada Post system, it will be up to the driver to honour that instruction if they choose.
