Gnu Flavor & Fiber Bars

I tried these fiber bars that my friend is obsessed with. I have only found them at Whole Foods so far. The good thing about these bars is that they super filling, probably because of the high fiber content.

Besides keeping you full, these are great for heart health and regularity (like the cute label says). Increasing your fiber intake can really help to lower cholesterol for those that have high cholesterol.

Anyway, these bars have a moderate amount of sugar, but I tolerate them because the sugar mostly comes from dried fruit. They don’t even taste that sweet.

This particular flavored bar has the least amount of sugar (7 g).

The Taste
Some flavors taste better than others. The banana walnut was probably my favorite so far. My least favorite, surprisingly, was the peanut butter. I mostly tasted the distinct wheat bran flavor. These bars crumble pretty easily, but that didn’t make them less enjoyable. If you don’t like bars like Kashi and Lara bars, you may not like these. They taste “healthy”, but I am used to that, and loved them.

I will probably buy these bars again, but when they are on sale, or for a cheaper price. Or, maybe I will try to make my own. Plus, I am not in any serious need of extra fiber in my diet. I get plenty already from fruits and vegetables.

    In fact, a diet high in fiber can be convenient and tasty – as easy a bowl of bran cereal topped with berries…or as exotic as, say, conchiglie with artichoke sauce, a simple pasta recipe that contains nearly 20 grams of fiber in one serving. There are no limitations.

    A really well written post, thank you for your hard work, please keep it up.
