Bakery on Main has added a new product to their gluten free line. They are called True Bars and consist of six varieties of fruit and nut bars.
In addition to being certified gluten free, True Bars are dairy and casein free, non-GMO, low sodium, Kosher, a good source of fiber and contain omega-3 fatty acids from chia seeds.
These bars are good for those who like to see and taste the individual ingredients in their bars. We were able to detect all of the nuts and flavors called out in the variety names. And the varieties are not your run of the mill flavors, including: Hazlenut Chocolate Cherry; Walnut Cappuccino; Fruit & Nut; Raspberry Chocolate Almond; Coconut Cashew; and Apricot Almond Chai.
My biggest concern with True Bars, and all fruit and nut type bars for that matter, is that they are slightly too sweet. That’s what happens when loose fruit and nut ingredients require something to bind them together. Liquid, viscous forms of sugar are the solution.
If you like other fruit and nut bars, like Kind, True Bars are a tasty and safe gluten free alternative. All varieties are less than 200 calories per bar and contain between six and 12 grams of total fat, 12 to 15 grams of sugar, three grams of dietary fiber, and two to four grams of protein. Based on this nutrition profile, I recommend they be eaten as a treat rather than as a meal replacement.This entry was posted in Product Reviews and tagged Bakery on Main, certified gluten free, dairy free, fruit and nut bars, gluten free, Kind, Kind Bars, non-GMO, True Bars, TrueBar.
