Going SoLo Is a Healthy Way to Snack

| Nov 11, 2007

SoLo Gi® Low Glycemic bars are delicious. We can vouch for that because we've eaten our way through all five flavors. And because they're clinically validated to have a very low glycemic index, they don't raise your blood sugar like other snack bars.

Our editor-in-chief, Scott King, ate a great-tasting Berry Bliss bar and was delighted to find that it didn't raise his blood sugar dramatically.

SoLo bars, which contain 23 vitamins and minerals, are made without trans fats, artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohols, or high fructose corn syrup. They're a fine source of fiber, protein, healthy fats, and good low GI carbohydrate, but they taste as good as any sugar-laden candy bar on the market. And because they're digested so slowly, they provide sustained energy without that spike and crash in blood glucose that leads to craving another sugar hit.

SoLo bars come in two sizes, a 100-calorie snack bar and a 200-calorie nutrition bar (both kosher, no less). They're made by a remarkably good-hearted company that has donated hundreds of thousands of the nutrient-rich bars to disaster victims and people in need.

SoLo Gi bars are available at Whole Foods Market or on the company's very informative web site (www.solo-gi.com), where you can buy them through amazon.com. By mail, they run about $17 for a box of twelve large ones.
