Are energy bars healthy?
Let’s ask a nutritionist! Dr. Helen Mullen, a certified dietitian nutritionist, wrote this for Health Matters
“What’s a good rule of thumb when choosing an energy bar? The fewer ingredients on the label, the better. The more additives you see — particularly excess sugar alcohols (sorbitol, xylitol), which can cause gastric distress — the less likely the bar is to deserve the “healthy” moniker. Palm oils, soy protein isolate and so-called natural flavors are also red flags. Instead, reach for a bar with fewer ingredients and make sure you recognize them and can pronounce them. Think: nuts, raisins, seeds, honey or even dark chocolate.”
