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.”
Why am I talking about snack bars? 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 have tried the Perfect Keto Bar.
I was skeptical. Would they taste good? Or would they be a waste of money?
Before I share my review I want to share a little more about the product.
It took founder Dr. Anthony Gustin 14 iterations of tested the bars’ impact on his own blood glucose levels to ensure Perfect Keto Bars would minimize his own glycemic effect after consumption.
Perfect Keto Bars are 19g of fat, 10g of protein from collagen, and 3g of net carbs.
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
I loved them!!!
The flavor I tried was the Almond Butter Brownie and it didn’t disappoint.
I should point out that I am not a fan of super sickly sweet food. While I do enjoy a decadent dessert now and then, I prefer the natural sweetness of food. I take my coffee unsweetened and love dark chocolate.
With that said, if you are looking for a snack bar that tastes like a rich dessert, you will not like this product. Of course any bar you find that tastes like that isn’t healthy.
These bars are great when I am on the go. Paired with an unsweetened iced coffee it makes the perfect breakfast bar.
