Oooo these are good and good for you, too! Besides the yumminess of the SoLo Energy and Nutrition bars, what sets these bars apart from others is the fact that they trigger a lower glycemic response, which translates into more steady energy and less blood sugar spikes and crashes. You may recall that glycemic index (GI) is a relative ranking of the carbohydrate in foods according to how it affects blood glucose levels; the lower the rating, the less effect there is on your blood glucose level. These bars have a GI of 23 to 35; very low considering a tablespoon of sugar has a GI of 64. Soft and slightly chewy, they are gluten free and contain 190-200 calories, 10-13 grams of protein and 3-4 grams of fiber. They come in 10 flavors, and we don’t have a favorite because they are all delicious, though some of the team was particularly taken with the Dark Chocolate Mandarin (can’t go wrong with a chocolate and orange combo!). They can be purchased at the link above or through Amazon.com. As they say, SoLo Bars are sure to spike your taste buds, not your blood sugar!
