Carlsbad, Calif.,– NEXT Proteins, the leading producer of a full-line of whey protein products under the DESIGNER WHEY™ brand, has announced a low Glycemic Index first for DETOUR Whey Protein Energy Bars.

The 43 gram Caramel Peanut DETOUR Whey Protein Energy Bar has received the Low Glycemic Index Seal from Glycemic Solutions, America’s official Glycemic Index testing facility.

With a low Glycemic Index (GI) of 39, DETOUR joins a rare group of nutrition bars to be classified as low GI. These bars can help reduce sugar loads and fat cell activity in healthy Americans.

Controlling bodyfat one bite at a time.
Eating sugary carbs cranks up blood sugar level and shunts sugar into fat cells. The higher the blood sugar levels, the higher the GI of the carbohydrate you ate. Quickly absorbed and metabolized carbohydrates, like white rice (GI-98) have the highest GI scores. Slowly digested carbs like peanuts and apples have low GI scores.

Low glycemic foods like DETOUR Bars offer a variety of health benefits for those concerned about fat cell activity and fat cell growth, as well as insulin resistance.
