What is Marine Collagen?
Marine collagen is collagen derived from fish skin (wild caught cod). When it is hydrolyzed, it becomes a completely tasteless, colorless, odorless powder and a pure source of protein. “Hydrolyzed” means that it goes through a process of being broken down into smaller molecules so that it can be easily absorbed by the body. It is also purified and always free of toxins that can sometimes be associated with collagen derived from land mammals, like cows or pigs.
Marine collagen is absorbed 1.5 times faster than other sources of collagen. Because it is absorbed more efficiently, it is thought to provide the best results and most health benefits, including smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.
Is Collagen safe to ingest?
Yes, our bodies already contain collagen. As you get older it starts to break down, and studies show that consuming pure collagen from other sources can boost your body’s own production.
Does Marine Collagen or the bar taste like fish?
Not at all, hydrolyzed collagen is always tasteless, colorless and odorless.
What is Kalumi?
Ka.lu.mi: (KAH-LUE-ME) is an amalgamation of the Greek word “kalon” which means ideal physical and moral beauty and the word “lumi” which means light.
Kalumi is our brand, but we also picture her as our own glowing goddess!
Is Beautyfood Gluten Free?
Yes! BEAUTYfood products are completely gluten-free. They are also dairy free, soy free and non-GMO.
What makes Kalumi "high quality"?
Currently, there aren’t many collagen bars on the market and we are the first marine collagen protein bar. Most use bovine (cow) collagen as a base. Unlike some of the other marine collagen products on the market, we use a full serving, 12 grams of pure marine collagen, which equates to 11 grams of protein. Not only do we use sustainable, wild-caught, marine collagen from one of the top sellers on the market, but we also combine it with vitamin C which provides optimal absorption. Our BEAUTYfood bars also contain naturally occurring antioxidants from food such as Beta-Carotene (precursor of vitamin A) and vitamin C (both from sweet potatoes). Yacon syrup is another one of the staple ingredients found in Kalumi bars, a yummy, metabolism-revving sweetener made naturally in Peru. Compared to other protein bar companies, we take absolutely no shortcuts and use zero fillers. You’re getting a hundred percent pure and hand-selected ingredients in every bite. Our bars contain a high amount of protein AND your daily dose of beauty-boosting nutrients. Kalumi is NOT JUST A PROTEIN BAR.*
What is Yacon Syrup?
Yacon is a root vegetable native to Peru, it’s moderately sweet and tastes like raisins. Yacon has a very low glycemic index and works wonders for the digestive system.*
What are the Shipping details?
We offer FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $37 in the US.

Is Kalumi BEAUTYfood shelf stable?
Yes! You do not need to refrigerate the bars. Our bars contain organic cocoa butter which can melt in hot conditions (in direct sunlight or carried around during the hot months of the year.) We refuse to use additives in our formula to stop this natural occurrence.
Why does my Kalumi BEAUTYfood look/taste different than my last order?
Because we use fresh, all-natural ingredients and do not use additives, un-natural stabilizers and/or preservatives to force each bar to look and taste exactly the same, batches can vary slightly.
Can I eat Kalumi BEAUTYfood bars if I'm pregnant?
If you are pregnant, nursing or have a health concern, always consult your physician before consuming.
