Dr. Mercola Organic Pumpkin Seed Cassava Bar have become very popular with not just athletes, but anyone looking for a fast and convenient way to recharge their energy, squelch hunger pangs and beat mid-afternoon fatigue.
However, with many of today’s snack or so-called “energy” bars, there’s a very fine line between them and what’s stocked in the candy aisle of your local grocery store.
In addition to questionable sweeteners like high-fructose corn syrup, cane syrup and fructose, many top-selling non-organic snack bars contain other genetically engineered ingredients like corn fiber, sugarcane fiber and soy protein isolate.
And then there’s taste… In my opinion, most of today’s bars just aren’t worth eating.
