Athletes and health conscious consumers have become expert label readers, not so much because we like to, but more so because we have to! Consumers Beware! Cleaver marketing campaigns by “health-minded” food and beverage companies can be no more than the proverbial smoke and mirrors.
Consumers in general are increasing their knowledge about nutrition, but when you mention something like “DGR” – delayed glycemic response, you often get the feeling that you lost them at the word hello.
Here’s the simple fact about “nutrition” bars. Not all nutrition bars are created equal. In fact, some of the bars on the market are no more than an expensive candy bar with protein. When you look at the numerous bars on the market and read the labels, you will soon discover that creative marketing often out-weighs the true nutritional value of the bar.
Today, Dr. Smoothie makes choosing a nutrition bar a lot easier, even for those who may not read every label! Bio Bars by Dr. Smoothie are more than an energy or protein bar. They are whole foods nutrition bars and let there be no question, these bars are packed with good, solid nutrition.
Bio Bars are cold processed, therefore maintaining the enzyme activity and nutrients of the raw components for high bioavailability. The true value of Bio Bars is in the ingredients. This is a vegan, gluten free raw food bar with 100% plant based nutrition from natural sources.
