Why does Sweet and Savory satisfy my hunger better than other bars?
The 15 whole foods found in a Sweet and Savory PROBAR formula is the reason your hunger is curbed for hours after eating. Nothing beats whole foods for providing broad-spectrum nutrition. Chemically derived vitamins, found in other bars, do not supply everything found in whole foods. Nutrition science is consistently uncovering more and more components in our foods that are critical for good health. The 15 whole foods guaranteed in each Sweet and Savory bar is also about 70% raw. This means you get optimal nutrient quality, undestroyed by processing. This nutrition simply cannot be duplicated with any existing technology.
Why is Sweet and Savory PROBAR blended and not baked?
Sweet and Savory is made with real food that you can see. It is blended together rather than chopped up, pureed and baked. By doing this we preserve the nutritional integrity of all natural ingredients so your body receives the maximum value it deserves
Are there peanuts in Sweet and Savory PROBAR?
All of the Sweet and Savory PROBAR flavors contain peanuts and other nuts.
How does Sweet and Savory PROBAR deliver its carbohydrates?
The whole grains & naturally dried fruits found in Sweet and Savory bars are carefully blended with low glycemic index grain sweeteners. This combination of simple and complex carbs immediately boosts blood sugar, while fiber loaded whole grains and fruits maintain these levels for hours.
Why does Sweet and Savory PROBAR require less hydration when eaten than other bars?
Sweet and Savory bars are lower in protein and sodium than most bars. Processing protein requires a lot of water. When ammonia and urea are produced in the processing of protein, the body uses H2O to dilute and eliminate these toxins.
How do Sweet and Savory bars achieve such excellent shelf life without preservatives?
Dried fruits, nuts, seeds, rolled grains, and grain sweeteners all have a naturally long shelf life and don't require the addition of chemical preservatives. Chemical preservatives also tend to taste like chemicals, yuck!
Why is the sugar content in a Sweet and Savory bar higher than some other bars?
The sugar content in Sweet and Savory bars is balanced for blood sugar regulation and optimal energy. Simple carbohydrates from organic brown rice and barley malt syrups along with dried fruits bring blood sugar levels up quickly without severely spiking insulin. These simple forms of sugar are indicated on the sugar line in the nutrition panel and are mistakenly compared to table sugar and HFCS (high fructose corn syrup). Complex carbohydrates along with fiber and other important nutrients are found in the rolled grains and support long term blood sugar regulation. Fiber also buffers the simple carbohydrates assisting them in a slower absorption. These are the reasons that Sweet and Savory PROBAR is such an effective tool for managing blood sugar.
What is the difference between refined sugar and evaporated cane juice?
Refined sugar is cooked and becomes acidic. Evaporated cane juice is simply air dried. The nutrients are better preserved when they are not exposed to heat.
Why are Sweet and Savory bars more expensive than other bars?
The Sweet and Savory collection of bars are made with premium, whole food ingredients and weighs a whopping 3.0 ounces. Check our price per ounce and you will find that we are very competitively priced. It's also made from high quality, real food ingredients. No fillers. No fluff.
Why is a Sweet and Savory PROBAR lower in protein than other bars?
Sweet and Savory PROBAR does not include any added protein powders or protein isolates that can be found in other bars. Protein happens to be the body's last choice for fuel with carbohydrates being the undisputed first pick. Fat is a distant second. When the body is forced to use protein for fuel it results in toxicity. The amino acid chains in protein must be removed, liberating the calories for use as fuel. This process, called de-amination, results in the production of ammonia, and urea. This process is not only toxic, but is also very inefficient when compared to the simple assimilation of carbohydrates. High protein can equate to lower energy levels when compared to carbohydrates
Why is a Sweet and Savory PROBAR higher in fats than other bars?
During extended periods of moderate level exercise (endurance sports), the body conserves vital carbohydrates by metabolizing fats at a more rapid rate than carbs. If the body becomes depleted of carbs it "hits the wall'. Muscles simply cannot function without the presence of carbohydrates. Sweet and Savory supplies a broad spectrum of healthy fats: poly and mono unsaturates, saturates (yes the body actually requires certain saturated fats), and EFA'™S (essential fatty acids more commonly referred to as omega essential fatty acids). Endurance athletes commonly deplete their bodies of these critical nutrients, several of which are not commonly found in foods. Because Sweet and Savory bars supply these in abundance, it is not only an excellent tool for use during competition and training, but is also ideal for recovery application.
For the non-athlete, these fats translate into exquisite nutrition, providing one third of the bodies daily requirements for fats in every bar. The key here is to provide the balance of fats from all of the different categories required by the body, while eliminating all of the unhealthy trans and hydrogenated fats. If any of the fats required by the body are missing, the body lets us know by giving us RELENTLESS CRAVINGS. This means that if we do not consume all of the different fats required by the body, we will crave everything that is fatty! SUPPLY THE FATS and END THE CRAVINGS!! When we avoid these cravings, weight management becomes much easier. HOORAY!
