Balance Bars and corn syrup!!

on 8/16/2009 by KPmodel | filed in: Nutrition and Supplements

I can't believe I didn't see this before, but my number one protein bar has corn syrup in it.  I'm very upset about this considering all of the recent findings on how unhealthy corn syrup is.  Does anyone know if they plan on changing this?

Why would they change it it costs half or more as much as sugur to use it, its cheap easy and hell with all the Irradiation and chemicalstimulants the commercial farms use to grow it they have tons of it. No I would say until we as consumers stop falling for the BS advertising and start taking control of our food supply no they will not stop. Anyway thier is no Protein bar on the market that is 100% good for you, the concept of eating one as a meal replacement or snack doesnt come from Nutritionists it comes from an industry trying to sell products, thiers either HFCS, or Glycerin ( which by the way is a binder that the body also does not digest) or not enough fiber to balance the bar or not enough protein vs carbs christ I could go on and on. Just eat some friut or crackers and PB or make a shake its more work but doing that will keep all the bad shit out of your stomach.
