Review: Are Eat Natural bars healthy or not? Our honest opinion.

  1. You've probably seen the Eat Natural bars in the store. Not only do supermarkets sell them, you can also find them at petrol stations. The brand has since managed to build up a fairly healthy reputation. Many people therefore assume that you can use Eat Natural bars as a healthy snack.

  1. The question is of course: is that correct? Are Eat Natural bars indeed healthy, or is it a bit disappointing when you take a critical look at the ingredients? We'll discuss it in today's blog!

What are Eat Natural Bars?

  1. Eat Natural is one of the brands that has devoted itself to the trend of healthy eating. They also make granola, for example, just as hype as those snack bars. Their aim is to keep their products gluten-free and free of artificial colors and flavors. To this end, the bars are made with â € a lot of love and attentionâ € ™.

  1. The Eat Natural bars are made in a number of variants. For example, you will find the flavors almond-apricot, dark chocolate, milk chocolate and almond-sultana. All â € packed with fruit and nuts â € ™, again according to the packaging.

Are Eat Natural bars healthy?

  1. But as you probably know, it's not always a good idea to directly believe food packaging. For that reason, we take a closer look at the ingredients of the Eat Natural bars. What exactly is in it, apart from those fruits and nuts? And how healthy are those ingredients exactly?

  1. Eat Natural is very proud of its products â € without added sugarsâ € ™. So all the more surprising that there is glucose syrup between the ingredients. That may sound better than sugar, but it's the exact same thing. It's not about a little bit either. The exact amount is not specified, but it can be deduced from the other ingredients that about 10 to 15 percent of the bar consists of pure glucose.

  1. Fortunately, those bars also contain regular fruit â € “and fruit is healthy, isn't it? You would think so, and fresh fruit is also very healthy. Unfortunately, the fruit in the Eat Natural bars was processed nicely before it ended up in those bars. In the dark chocolate bar, for example, we find that the 8% cranberries are not just cranberries.

  1. It also contains sugar and sunflower oil. For dried fruit such as raisins, in general, you should not eat too much of it. The sugars are also quite concentrated in it.

  1. Do you think we should be done with the sugar by now? Unfortunately, it has also been added to other ingredients. The basis of every bar is formed by puffed rice. But as if that by itself doesn't contain enough carbohydrates, it says here again that the ingredients are rice and sugar.

  1. Finally, we find small amounts of extra sugar here and there. For example, the yogurt coating of the almond-apricot bar contains more sugar and palm oil than yogurt. And the chocolate used in both chocolate flavors naturally also contains sugar.

  1. Finally, honey has been added to each bar. That may sound natural, but it really does nothing else in your body than regular granulated sugar.

So… healthy?

  1. In short: a lot of added sugars. Of course the Eat Natural bars also contain some ingredients that are good for you, such as nuts and some dried fruit. It is a pity that there is an unnecessary amount of junk involved.

  1. In total, around 40% of the bar consists of carbohydrates - in short, just sugar. In addition, the bars provide a lot of calories. That is not necessarily a problem, but it is important to be aware of it.

  1. Eat Natural bars are better than Mars or Snickers. But do you really want to know for sure what you are getting? Then just make your own bars!
