Quest Nutrition Bars

Has anyone else tried these ? If not you should.

These are without a doubt the best protein / nutrition bars I've ever had.

Amazon.com: Quest Nutrition Protein Bar Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Flavor, 2.12 oz,12 Count: Health & Personal Care

I've tried several flavors. The Vanilla Almond Crunch is probably my favorite, followed closely by the White Chocolate Raspberry, and the Peanut Butter Supreme.

They use a higher quality protein than most bars do and they have around 17 grams of fiber.

Chewing them makes my jaw tired though lol I prefer the detour bars that are like a Snickers.

I think I am going to make a few attempts at making my own bars.

BTW, dd you gear about the law suit against Quest nutrition? Apparently someone tested them and found the label to be way off. :/ What do you expect from the supp industry though?

I've heard about it, but I also read that the label claims weren't as far off as indicated.

I'm sure the label claims aren't spot on all the time. I doubt that any of these types of products are.

A guy going by the name of Juggy38 on DatBtrue ( I'm assuming he's our very own Juggy here....Juggy is that you ? ) tested his blood glucose levels after eating Quest bars. I asked him about it and was told that they only increased his blood glucose 8-9 points, which isn't much.

Granted that doesn't say how much protein is in them, but the insulin response should be minimal.

I've been doing some reading on what you said Shortz.

It looks like diabetics aren't responding to it well. I'd like to see more blood glucose testing on non-diabetics. One thing I read was that they suspect the gut flora in diabetics if different than that of non-diabetics. The gut bacteria in the diabetics may be digesting the fiber to a larger extent than what a non-diabetic would.

Interesting...I'll keep reading up on it.

I was told by a local nutrition shop that the company who makes Quest bars are voluntarily suspending production due to a quality control issues regarding their products not living up to label claims.

That's probably not a bad thing if the company is taking it upon themselves to straighten things out....have to respect that.
