    My very support wife bought me a box of these.
    I did a loop da loop when I saw the box which claims 1,8g net carbs per 30g bar.
    However when I opened it up, there are a total of 14g of carbs in each bar.
    I've done a quite search on the matter and it seems the bulk of the 14g are from ' polyoils' and other stuff that is alleged not to trigger and glycemic response. But there's clearly a lot of doubt.
    Does anyone have experience of this product ?
    Has anyone done any reading on this ?
    I think I've read somewhere that even steak has a relatively high GI number, but still different interrupt ketosis, so is it possible that there are some carbohydrates might do the same ?
    edit: thanks for the replies. I will proceed with caution. I don't need to eat them, but it's nice to have options

    Just a heads up, what they label under carbs are actuall "polyols", not polyoils. Poly-ols meaning that they are poly-alcohols, meaning they have multiple -OH groups. Nothing to do with oil at all (because as ketoers we love a bit of oil ;))!

  • How Does An Infection Affect Diabetes?

    Type 1 diabetes can occur at any age. It is most often diagnosed in children, adolescents, or young adults. Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas by special cells, called beta cells. The pancreas is below and behind the stomach. Insulin is needed to move blood sugar (glucose) into cells. Inside the cells, glucose is stored and later used for energy. With type 1 diabetes, beta cells produce little or no insulin. Without enough insulin, glu ...
