What is so good about nuts in CLIF Mojo?
Not only do nuts give CLIF Mojo its distinctive character, but they also contain a healthy amount of monounsaturated and poly-unsaturated fat the better-for-you fat. Consuming daily and moderate portions of nuts, such as the portion in a CLIF Mojo, is recommended as part of a healthy diet.
Why are nuts recommended as part of a healthy diet?
The mono and poly unsaturated fats found in nuts are proven to be good choices when adding fat to the diet. In moderation, nuts have been shown to decrease the risk of heart disease (when combined with a diet low in total fat and high in fiber).
The FDA has stated, “Scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.”
Nuts are also a good source of the newly discovered plant sterols. Plant sterols are beneficial compounds found in foods that have potential protective health benefits. Check out the Peanut Institute for great studies focused on this topic. www.peanut-institute.org
Why soy protein?
Clif Bar has chosen to use soy as their primary protein because:
- It is a high quality, non-animal protein
- Of non-animal proteins, it contains the highest level essential amino acids (building blocks of tissue in the body)
- It balances the carbohydrate, protein, fat ratios
- Contributes to current taste and texture value
The American Heart Association recognizes that soy protein has a place as a healthy alternative to higher fat and cholesterol protein options.
