They are high fat, medium protein, med carb, and are low glycemic (though i suspect high in fructose) and are made w/ a newish product called "coconut nectar" which is apparently the coconut palm equivalent of maple syrup. Also vegan, non-gmo, no gluten, no soy. Not thrilled about the fact it contains stevia, but there you are.
I liked the coconut flavor best though they're a bit more sweet than i'd like. (The almond ones were even sweeter)
I mention them because they were tasty (more in a candy way than a snack kind of way) and they're mostly compatible w/ the Paleoish leanings of some of the people around here. Oh they're also $3 / piece so it's a premium snacking experience.
How do you figure ? The 2nd ingredient by weight is protein powder. Nutritional content wise it only has about as many carbs as protein (in the coconut flavor anyway).
However, i'm confused about the claims made for this coconut nectar. Reading around the web it says that it is LOW in fructose (like 10% when condensed) and is mostly sucrose (like 80%). But if so, how is it low GI ? There are many assertions that it has a GI of 35, but i can't find a study that says so (using Google) or an explanation of how this works. Wikipedia points to this summary of a study from the Philippines http://www.pca.da.gov.ph/pdf/glycemic.pdf
i hope it is not insulinogenic by some other path and that this is how it achieves its low GI. Maybe i should go back to twinkies.
