🔹Puffed Rice (22%)= Description
Puffed rice is a type of puffed grain made from rice, commonly used in breakfast cereals or snack foods. It is usually made by heating rice kernels under high pressure in the presence of steam.

🔸Rice = Not organic and typically a heavily sprayed crop.

🔸Sucrose = Sucrose is a common sugar. Sucrose is produced naturally in plants, from which table sugar is refined. Sucrose is a disaccharide consisting of one glucose and one fructose molecule, or 50% glucose and 50% fructose. It’s a naturally occurring carbohydrate found in many fruits, vegetables and grains, but it’s also added to many processed foods.

🔸Salt = Acts as a flavour enhancer. Table salt is typically mined from salt deposits, remnants of older bodies of seawater that have since dried up and are long gone. The deposits are washed with water to dissolve the salt, forming a salt solution which is then evaporated under vacuum to form crystals. Table salt often contains an anti-caking agent.

🔸Emulsifier (471)] may be genetically modified, used as a stabiliser. Can be palm oil derived. Glycerides of fatty acids.

🔹Non-Dairy Choc Compound (20%)= Compound chocolate is a product made from a combination of cocoa, vegetable fat and sweeteners. It is used as a lower-cost alternative to true chocolate, as it uses less-expensive hard vegetable fats such as coconut oil or palm kernel oil in place of the more expensive cocoa butter.

🔸Vegetable Fat^= RSPO Palm oil. Certified sustainable palm oil. Palm oil is an edible vegetable oil derived from the mesocarp of the fruit of the oil palm.

🔸A Non-GMO Erythritol= Erythritol is generally mostly absorbed before it gets to your colon and is excreted unchanged in your urine. Erythritol is less sweet than sugar. It’s about 70% as sweet as sugar.
Has a zero glycaemic index (GI), does not raise plasma glucose or insulin levels and is suitable for diabetics or consumers on a special diet.

🔸Cocoa Powder = Cocoa powder comes from cocoa beans. The beans are fermented, dried, roasted and cracked into nibs. Then, the nibs are pressed to remove 75% of their cocoa butter.

🔸Maltodextrin = Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide that is used as a food additive. It is produced from vegetable starch by partial hydrolysis and is usually found as a white hygroscopic spray-dried powder. Maltodextrin is easily digestible, being absorbed as rapidly as glucose and may be either moderately sweet.

🔸Pea Protein= Has a neutral taste. Used in dairy alternatives. It is extracted from the yellow pea, Pisum sativum, and has a typical legume amino acid profile. It has a high protein content and is high in iron.

🔹Vegetable Glycerine = Vegetable glycerin, also known as glycerol or glycerine, is a clear liquid typically made from soybean, coconut or palm oils. It is odorless and has a mild, sweet taste with a syrup-like consistency.

🔹Natural Flavour = Natural flavour can be anything. Companies do not have to disclose the ingredients of their natural flavours. Up to 100 ingredients can be added to this one label. It is used to preserve food and make it taste delicious so you go back for more. Best avoided.

🔹Steviol Glycosides (Stevia)= Stevia is a sweetener and sugar substitute derived from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana, native to Brazil and Paraguay. The active compounds are steviol glycosides, which have 30 to 150 times the sweetness of sugar, are heat-stable, pH-stable, and not fermentable.

🔹Soluble Corn Fibre = Soluble corn fiber is a nondigestible carbohydrate used in foods and beverages such as cereals, baked goods, candy, dairy products, frozen foods, carbonated beverages, and flavored water. SCF helps create packaged food products that have lower sugar contents, while providing a valuable source of dietary fiber. Corn fiber is made using fermentation of simple plant sugar to create a range of textile products and applications.

🔹Chicory Root Fiber= Because inulin, the fiber from chicory root, is a source of soluble fiber, it passes through the body undigested. So, foods containing chicory root fiber may contribute to satiety after meals. Inulin is considered a “prebiotic,” promoting healthy bacteria growth in the gut.

🔹Coconut Oil Powder = Coconut Oil Powder is made up of varying medium chain triglycerides, which are fatty acids connected to a carbon backbone, that are broken down quickly to be used as energy. MCTs are naturally occurring in coconut, butter, cheeses, milk, and yogurt. Coconut Oil Powder contains a high amount of Lauric Acid, an MCT that has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties.

🔸Coconut Oil = Derived from coconuts. Coconut oil is made by pressing fresh coconut meat or dried coconut meat called copra.

🔸Polydextrose = Polydextrose is a synthetic polymer of glucose. It is a food ingredient classified as soluble fiber. It is frequently used to increase the dietary fiber content of food, to replace sugar, and to reduce calories and fat content. Used also as a bulking agent and thickener.
🔹Maltodextrin= Addative. Obtained by the hydrolysis of starch. Safe and beneficial. May be GM or synthetic. May be plant-derived. Maltodextrin is easily digestible, being absorbed as rapidly as glucose and may be either moderately sweet or almost flavorless.

🔹Wheat flour=Wheat flour is a powder made from the grinding of wheat into a fine powder. White flour is made from heavily refined and processed wheat grains since they are bleached. Unfortunately white flour is so heavily processed it loses most of its nutritional value being.

🔹Emulsifier (Soy Lecithin)= It’s used primarily as an emulsifier. It almost always pops up in chocolate and often appears in supplements. Lecithin is most often derived from sunflower kernels, rapeseed (canola), milk, soy, and egg yolks. To make soy lecithin, soybean oil is extracted from raw soybeans using a chemical solvent (usually hexane). (4) Then, the crude soy oil goes through a ‘degumming’ process, wherein water is mixed thoroughly with the soy oil until the lecithin becomes hydrated and separates from the oil. Soy lecithin likely contains pesticides and solvents.

🔸Like all packaged food, there are ingredients in here that are not the best thing for your body. Vegetable oils and sweeteners for example. It’s not organic rice, corn and soy which are heavily sprayed crops, so these would contain pesticide residues. I also recommend avoiding anything with a natural flavour. Good luck it’s hard. We just don’t know what’s in it. The chocolate they choose to use is not even great chocolate. It’s compound chocolate which is low cost and derived from vegetable fats. There are quite a lot of highly inflammatory foods in this bar. As a convenience food and in moderation it wouldn’t harm you. The low sugar content is a bonus. However, I would suggest making your own, or choosing an organic or similar alternative.
