Unboxed: 14 new nutrition bars
Welcome to the latest edition of Unboxed, where Delicious Living's Senior Food Editor Jenna Blumenfeld reviews the newest natural food and beverage products that have crossed her desk.
This week: Love 'em or hate 'em, nutrition bars are here to stay. These new natural formulations offer cleaner protein options (read: more nuts, meats and pea protein; less whey and soy isolates), and shorter ingredient lists. The smartest bar brands are also minimizing sugar content by pumping up flavor, or even going the savory route with ingredients like kale, pumpkin seeds, olives and more.
