With this package, our expert-led Research & Development team will work with you to create a professional formula for a 'better for you' "frosting," "edible cookie dough" or "cookie butter," utilizing the most leading-edge processes innovated by food scientists.

- Organoleptic Testing performed by our team of in-house experts
- Full database Nutritional Analysis
- Water Activity Level Testing to ensure shelf life stability
- Our FDA compliance team will send you the professional dieline for creating your own completely customized packaging for your bars, and completely customized display boxes for your bars.

*Please note that this price includes two hours of compliance checks from our FDA compliance team and up to three rounds of bench prototypes (8-10 servings per round), and that no refunds are available after work begins. Any label claims that are considered non-standard by YouBar's team will not be able to be approved without the stated approval by a 3rd party FDA compliance lawyer or consultant (YouBar can provide an introduction if desired). Graphic design work is available on an hourly basis, and additional prototype shakes/powders are available for an additional cost. The formulation cost is for one flavor only. If you would like multiple flavors of bars then you will need to purchase multiple R&D packages. Please note that YouBar relies on clients to complete this process within six months of initiating it, otherwise additional R&D fees will apply.
