If you consider cereal bars to be a healthy option for your odd time hunger satiating source then read on. As per an investigation by consumer group Which? it has been revealed that many of the cereal bars are quite high in sugar and fat content.
During the investigation, the consumer group found that 16 out 30 contained more than 30% sugar. Some of the bars that astonished officials were Nutri-Grain Elevenses, which contained 18g. The amount of sugar was more than the sum being present in the 150ml can of aerated drink.
Other bars, which were found to be rich in fat was the Tracker Roasted Nut bar and Monster Puffs. In addition, it was also found that six bars out of seven that were meant to be for children were found to be high in fats.
Richard Lloyd, who is the executive director of the consumer group Which?, was of the view, “Manufacturers need to be much clearer about how much sugar, fat and calories are loaded into each bar so people can make an informed choice”.
On the other hand, cereal bar manufacturers were not happy with the claims being made by the consumer group officials.
