Protein: One BG Bar provides approximately 10 grams of protein.
The highly assimilable protein comes from a careful and specific
selection of whole foods, wild-crafted blue-green
algae, almonds, sesame seeds, dulse, and kelp. This is complete
protein, which means it contains all essential amino acids.
Essential Fatty Acids: Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids must
be obtained from the diet. They are believed to promote numerous
health benefits, such as enhancing proper brain functioning. The
fatty acids in the BG Bar come from the almonds, almond butter,
blue-green algae, flax seed, and sesame seeds.
Carbohydrates: Our BG Bar contains a mixture of complex
and simple carbohydrates. This combination allows it to be more
slowly absorbed by the body. The type of ingested carbohydrates
(simple vs. complex) makes a difference in insulin response. For
example, most so-called nutrition bars contain high amounts of heavily
processed fructose syrup, dextrose syrup, and sucrose from beet
or cane sugar. These are all simple sugars that result in a “high”
followed quickly by a “crash,” so they are unable to offer sustainable
energy. Since our BG Bar contains both simple and complex sugars,
there is a minimum fluctuation in blood sugar during absorption,
which means our BG Bar offers a higher level of sustained energy
over a longer period of time, without the sugar “crash.” It also has a good amount of soluble and insoluble fiber.
