Food Review: Cascadian Farm Fiber Right Bars

Women need between 25 and 30 grams of fiber a day, and sometimes meals alone won't bring you to your daily quota. I'm always looking for quick snacks that are high in fiber, and when I came across these new Cascadian Farm Fiber Right Bars ($4) at the store, they looked like a tasty way to help me reach my goal.

To find out how these Almond Butter Crunchy Granola Bars taste and see how many calories are in one serving continue reading.

This bar was satisfyingly crunchy and sweet, like a homemade cookie, and I liked the layer of creamy almond butter spread on the top. I wasn't pleased to see that the number two ingredient is sugar, but as you can see from the nutritional info, these bars contain only 10 grams of sugar per two-bar serving. Not too bad.

Other granola bars such as Bear Naked Grain-ola Bars and Kashi TLC bars contain about four grams of fiber, so with a name like "Fiber Right," I expected these to contain more than just five grams per serving. I suppose five is better than nothing, but I think the name is slightly deceptive. And since I like to reserve my sugar intake to really decadent treats like ice cream and chocolate, I don't think I'll be buying these again as a source of fiber. There is plenty of other low sugar, natural snacks that are higher in fiber like fruits and nuts, nut butter and bread, and veggies and hummus.
