Apple Cinnamon Crunch is a flavor reminiscent of Mom's homemade apple pie with just the right combination of sweet apples, nuts, and a dash of cinnamon. This bar is so good it might compliment your next Thanksgiving dinner. The Essential FactsWhat you need to know about our bars:1. Why does the Probar satisfy my hunger so much better than other bars The 17 whole foods found in the Probar formula are the reason you don't get hungry for a long time after eating one. Nothing beats whole foods for providing broad-spectrum nutrition. Chemically derived vitamins, found in other bars, do not supply everything found in whole foods. Nutrition science is consistently uncovering more and more components in our foods that are critical for good health. The 15 whole foods guaranteed in each ProBar are also about 70% raw. This means you get optimal nutrient quality, undestroyed by processing. This nutrition simply cannot be duplicated with any existing technology. The superb nutrition load, found only in the Probar, satisfies the body's nutrition requirements better than any other bar available. Once again this goes a long way in satisfying hunger pangs. The ProBar frees us from the cravings that drive us to overeat. Good news for dieters! This is also the reason why our customers keep coming back, once they try it, the body keeps saying yes to the incredible nutrition.2. How does the Probar deliver its carbs The Whole grains & natural dried fruits found in the Probar are carefully blended with low glycemic index grain sweeteners. This combination of simple and complex carbs immediately boosts blood sugar, while fiber loaded whole grains and fruits maintain these levels for hours.3. Why is the Probar more digestible than other bars Digestion and assimilation are facilitated by enzyme activity. Enzymes are found abundantly in unprocessed, un-cooked (or raw) foods. Foods heated to 116 degrees F or higher have no enzyme activity. The Probar ingredients are about 70% raw! The Probar is blended, not baked. This preserves vital enzyme activity, making the nutrients easier to digest and absorb. This translates into faster energy, and less cramping when consumed during activity.4. Why does the Probar require less hydration when eaten than other bars The Probar is lower in protein and sodium than most bars. Processing protein requires a lot of water. When ammonia and urea are produced in the processing of protein, the body uses H2O to dilute and eliminate these toxins.5. How does the Probar achieve such an excellent shelf life without any preservatives Dried fruits, nuts, seeds, rolled grains, and grain sweeteners all have a naturally long shelf life and don't require the addition of chemical preservatives. Chemical preservatives also tend to taste rather like chemicals, yuck!6. Why is the Probar more expensive than other bars It isn't! The Probar weighs in at a whopping 3.0 ounces. Check our price per ounce and you will find that we are very competitively priced. The Probar is also made from high quality, real food ingredients. No fillers. No fluff.7. Why is the Probar lower in protein than other bars Protein is the body's last choice for fuel! Carbohydrates are the undisputed first pick. Fat is a distant second. When the body is forced to use protein for fuel it results in toxicity. The amino acid chains in protein must be removed, liberating the calories for use as fuel. This process, called de-amination, results in the production of ammonia, and urea. This process is not only toxic, but is also very inefficient when compared to the simple assimilation of carbohydrates. HIGH PROTEIN MEANS LOW ENERGY, compared to carbs. The Probar provides an excellent protein ratio for endurance. Recovery nutrition, and meal replacement, is also easily achieved by simply adding any extra protein requirements by eating the Probar with a piece of whole fruit and a glass of soymilk.8. Why is the Probar higher in fats than other bars During extended periods of moderate level exercise (endurance sports) the body conserves vital carbohydrates by metabolizing fats at a more rapid rate than carbs. If the body becomes depleted of carbs it "hits the wall." Muscles simply cannot function without the presence of carbohydrates. The Probar supplies a broad spectrum of healthy fats. Poly and mono unsaturates, saturates (yes the body actually requires certain saturated fats), and EFA'S (essential fatty acids more commonly referred to as omega essential fatty acids). Endurance athletes commonly deplete their bodies of these critical nutrients, several of which are not commonly found in foods. Because the Probar supplies these in abundance, it is not only an excellent tool for use during competition and training, but is also ideal for recovery application also. For the non-athlete Probar lover, these fats translate into exquisite nutrition, providing one third of the bodies daily requirements for fats in every bar. The key here is to provide the balance of fats from all of the different categories required by the body, while eliminating all of the unhealthy trans and hydrogenated fats. If any of the fats required by the body are missing, the body lets us know by giving us RELENTLESS CRAVINGS. This means that if we do not consume all of the different fats required by the body, we will crave everything that is fatty! SUPPLY THE FATS and END THE CRAVINGS! When we avoid these cravings, weight management becomes much easier. HOORAY!
