  • 3 tsp of sugars per serving
    This includes both naturally occurring and added sugars. According to the USDA, every man woman and child in the US consumes approximately 80 pounds of caloric sweeteners per year! That works out to 25 tsp of sugars per day, or 400 extra calories!
  • For dieters: FoodPoints value is 4
    * FoodPoints are calculated by Fooducate based on fats, carbs, fiber, and protein. They are not an endorsement or approval of the product or its manufacturer. The fewer points - the better.
  • Puffed up with protein?
    Protein is important, but some of the protein you find in this product isn't exactly natural. The protein comes from one of the following sources: - milk protein concentrate - whey protein isolate - soy protein isolate While it's fine to get some of your protein from supplemented items, keep in mind that they are not "natural" sources and that it's not ideal to get protein only from processed goods. If you're looking for more protein, try beans, quinoa, nuts, seeds, peas and spinach & leafy greens. Not only do they have protein, they're filled with other vitamins and minerals.
  • Multiple sugar ingredients listed
    Many times, manufacturers add several different types of sugar in order to make the sugar appear lower in the ingredient list.
  • Highly Processed!
    This product is highly processed. If you'll take a look at its ingredient list, you'll discover new words to add to your vocabulary. Many of theses ingredients are required to increase the shelf life of the product and improve the flavor that disappears when food is not fresh.
  • Is this a snack or a meal replacement bar?
    Most bars are marketed as snacks, but buyer beware! Many oversized bars are actually meal replacement bars. They're not meant to be a snack, they're meant to be a meal. Check the nutrition label. Anything over 40 grams (one and a half ounces) is in meal territory.
  • Learn why bars don't get high grades
    The health halo of some bars is not always justified. Check the ingredients and sugar content of many and you'll see that they may not be much more than candy in disguise. The higher quality bars are composed of simple, understandable ingredients. But even they are highly sweetened (whether sugar or fruit sources) Bars should be viewed as a snack for once in a while, not a daily meal replacement solution. And that's why they don't get A's.

For one granola bite (12 in recipe) = 190 calories, 8.4 g fat, 26.7 g carbohydrates, 5.4 g protein, 3.1 g fiber, 52 mg sodium, 5 FoodPoints.
  • Natural flavors added. Learn why
    Companies add flavorings to make products taste better. They are created in a lab and the formulations are guarded as trade secrets. Flavorings can compensate for flavor loss during processing, substitute for ingredients, lower production costs and increase shelf stability. Natural flavorings are more expensive to source than artificial flavors, but tend to be better received by consumers. People sensitive to MSG, vegans, vegetarians and those with allergies should pay special attention to the phrase "natural flavorings" since glutamates, animal products or allergens may be the source of natural flavors. You can always contact the manufacturer for more information.
  • Learn about soy lecithin, found here
    Lecithins are oily substances that occur naturally in plants (soybeans) and animals (egg yolks). Soy lecithin possesses emulsification properties. This means it can keep a candy bar “together” by making sure that the cocoa and the cocoa butter don’t separate. It is also used in bakery items to keep the dough from sticking and to improve its ability to rise.
