About GoMacro
GoMacro makes wholesome, healthy snacks in the form of macrobiotic, vegan, energy and protein bars that are made in small batches in a rural area of Wisconsin. GoMacro was founded in 2004 by mother and daughter team, Amelia Kirchoff and Jola Sonkin. Faced with cancer in the family, they researched treatments and discovered the macrobiotic diet; a diet based on whole grains, beans, fresh fruit and vegetables and the elimination of eggs, dairy, refined sugars, additives, and processed foods. Better health brought along a bigger appetite – including sweets. After creating macrobiotic desserts to satisfy their sweet cravings, the concept of GoMacro arose.

Using an individualized dynamic approach to make real food, GoMacro remains true to the macrobiotic promise of better health, a balanced lifestyle and a concern for the environment and all its inhabitants. GoMacro products use organic, gluten-free ingredients, complex carbs and healthy fats to create a pH-balanced environment in your body, leading to better absorption of minerals and other nutrients.

MacroBars can be purchased online or in various health stores throughout the country. Please visit GoMacro’s store locator for a list of locations where products are sold.
