I have been looking for a better bar, one that I would consider clean: it would need to be somewhat keto-friendly, free of artificial sweeteners and soluble corn fiber, one that doesn't spike my blood glucose, and one that can be found easily. After having a discussion with @fit_pattern, he suggested @rxbar . These are not "keto" bars per se, they have 19g Net Carbs, but they are made with whole foods, and I am at a point in my keto journey that I would willingly eat a higher carb product if it were real food. I was really drawn by the transparency of this company, the ingredients are listed as the most prominent part of the front of the label. This bar contains only 3 egg whites, 6 almonds, 4 cashews, two dates, chocolate, and sea salt. The total cals are 210, 9g F, 12g P. ▪️ So today I experimented on myself and tried the Chocolate Sea Salt RX Bar. The first pic shows the bar and my Baseline Blood Glucose. Swipe left to see the second pic and my BG after 30 minutes, 3rd pic is 60 minutes after, 4th pic 90 mins after, and 5th pic my BG 2 hrs after consuming the bar. My blood glucose did go up 20 points, but it returned to near baseline within 2 Hrs. ▪️I don't eat a ton of bars, but my husband does because he travels a lot for work, and he has been saying that he feels that the bars (Quest, Kirkland) he is eating is affecting his BG. I am going to start buying these for him (and test him as well). I purchased these at Safeway, I have seen them at @wincofoods and @traderjoes as well. ▪️The Rx Bar is the only bar I have found to date that checks nearly all the boxes for my needs !!!
