Protein Bar help!

(Crystal ) #1

I found this bar but I’m curious - do I also subtract sugar alchols in addition to fibre?
That would make it a cool 3g net which would be great in a pinch at work.
Thanks everyone!


Everyone responds differently to processed foods. So, what works for one person does not work for another.

I can let you know that for me, I cannot subtract anything. Total carb grams is what I need to stick to.


I am always suspicious of these Frankenfood bars. The pic did not show the ingredients, but I’m guessing there’s a lot of “chemically stuff” in there. Maybe it will work for you in a pinch, try it and see how your body responds.


Some people find success from subtracting the fiber and half the value of the sugar alcohols.

Give it a try and Let is know how it works out. I go by net carbs. Works for me okay.

Thanks everyone!

Yeah it’s an “in a pinch” food. I didn’t go over ingredients, I was more curious if “sugar alcohols” were also subtracted to find NET or if this particular bar would be 13g net carbs. I hadn’t come across that before since I just stick to real foods.
I guess there’s only one way to find out, but I thought I’d ask :v:

I would interpret that as 13g net , not removing the alcohol sugars.
