Additionally CardioBar® was designed to keep tour cholesterol levels in the recommended range. The food value and functional value combines to make CardioBar® a delicious functional food.
CardioBar® uses whole food sourced carbs and places the carbs in the bar’s protein plus fiber matrix to assure a slow release of the natural energy source these carbs provide over an extended period, giving normal glycemic numbers required for an even and balanced blood sugar level.

The actual digestible carbohydrates are the net carbs. These result in energy for the body. Total carbs applies to these digestible carbs plus the indigestible non energy carbs as they are longer chain fibers made up of similar linked carb molecules which are not broken down to energy carbs. Total carbs is a larger number and requires in the US to be shown on the label while in most other countries only net carbs are shown as carbs, and the fibers listed as fibers, not carbs.
A medium size apple is between 24-26 net carbs, a banana is 28-30 carbs. These are on par with the net carbs in CardioBars. The important point is the carbs in fruit are released into the bloodstream as soon as eating the fruit as there is minimal fiber and almost zero protein. CardioBar’s carbs are much slower released and as such will not have the quicker rise in blood sugar fruit has, with the result being CardioBar® provides longer term endurance with the same amount of net carbs.
