Battle of the Cereal Bars

Strawberry Special K Bar vs. Barbara's Whole Wheat Fig Bars

Savvy Alert:

Trans fats, Artificial flavours, TBHQ and BHT (preservatives)




BHT - Preservative

BHT is added to foods containing fats and oils to prolong shelf life. It has been shown to affect the nervous system, to cause behavioural problems in children, and it may convert hormones and oral contraceptives into carcinogens.

Savvy Pick

Barbara’s Whole Wheat Fig Bars contain no trans fat or preservatives. They are made with all-natural ingredients -- and that includes real fruit filling!
