So let's take a quick look at a nutrition label from Journey Bar. What you want to look for here are the REDS and YELLOWS. Reds are the nutrients to limit, which include Total Fat, Saturated Fat, Trans Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. The yellows are the nutrients to stock up on, which include Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A and C, Calcium and Iron.
5% DV or less is low and 20% DV or more is high. 5% DV or less is low for all nutrients, those you want to limit (e.g., fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium), or for those that you want to consume in greater amounts (fiber, calcium, etc). 20% DV or more is high for all nutrients.
We pride ourselves on creating a nutrition bar that limits your reds, and provides more of your yellows. With only 7 grams of sugar, Journey Bar is one of lowest sugar-containing nutrition bars on the market right now. This is in big part to our savory flavor - not sweet.
If you haven't tried one yet, give our variety pack a try. They make a good snack, especially during the holidays when the temptation to reach for a handful of M&M's is strong.
