As many of you already know, I’m not a fan of packaged foods. I am especially skeptical of packaged foods that claim to be “healthy.” Over the next few weeks I’m going to be talking a lot about snack bars. Why? Because, it’s something we should be talking about more as a health community.
The snack bar marketplace is overwhelming and let’s face it like most aspects of the food industry… a hot mess. Most bars on the market either have high sugar content, high net carbs, lots of sugar alcohols, use pro-inflammatory fillers and stabilizers, and do not support a ketogenic (or any other) diet. But it’s not all doom and gloom…
I’m going to get to try the new Perfect Keto Bar later this week. While I am still skeptical, I’m also very excited about these. It took founder Dr. Anthony Gustin 14 iterations of tested the bars’ impact on his own blood glucose levels to ensure Keto Bars would minimize his own glycemic effect after consumption.
Keto Bars are 19g of fat, 10g of protein from collagen, and 3g of net carbs.
And the main ingredients are:
Almond and cacao butter (not peanuts)
Coconut oil (for the MCT’s)
Collagen (for the soft-tissue recovery)
And a touch of sea salt and stevia
