Look at the ingredients...rice, flour, sugar, high fructose corn syrup. The Fiber One bars are a no-no. I don't think the South Beach bars are much better:
South Beach High Protein Cereal Bar:
SOY NUGGETS (SOY PROTEIN ISOLATE, TAPIOCA STARCH, SALT), SUGAR, MALTITOL SYRUP, FRACTIONATED PALM KERNEL OIL, SOY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE, ROASTED SOY NUTS, CORN SYRUP, OLIGOFRUCTOSE (FOR FIBER), EVAPORATED CANE JUICE INVERT SYRUP, SUNFLOWER OIL, MALTITOL, BROWN RICE SYRUP, COCOA (PROCESSED WITH ALKALI), NONFAT MILK, MILK PROTEIN CONCENTRATE, COCOA, CALCIUM CASEINATE, CALCIUM CARBONATE, TRICALCIUM PHOSPHATE, LACTOSE, SALT, SOY LECITHIN, BUTTER [CREAM, ANNATTO (COLOR), SALT], DEXTROSE, WHEY, NATURAL FLAVOR, PALM OIL, CITRIC ACID, MONO- AND DIGLYCERIDES, ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, COCOA BUTTER, CARAMEL COLOR, FERRIC PHOSPHATE (SOURCE OF IRON), NIACINAMIDE, SUCRALOSE (SWEETENER), ZINC OXIDE (SOURCE OF ZINC), MAGNESIUM CARBONATE, VITAMIN B6, VITAMIN A PALMITATE, RIBOFLAVIN (VITAMIN B2), THIAMIN MONONITRATE VITAMIN B1),VITAMIN B12.
Most of us here believe in eating as much non-processed whole foods as we can and don't endorse the use of bars and the like.
