I have been eating a few pretzels as an afternoon snack lately. Do you guys think the canola oil in them is that big of a deal? There can be that much in them! I just happened to notice that it was in the ingredients. Everything else on the label looks pretty sound.
1g of fat
3g of protein
Ingredients: Unbleached wheat flour, water, canola oil, potato flour, salt, oat fiber, yeast, soda.
Any opinions? Thoughts?

I would not stress over a few pretzels here and there. Unless your weeks out of a show or something, don't sweat it.

i was just doin some research, looking up GIs of different foods and stuff and found that pretzels have a pretty hight GI, the site i was looking at had them as 83. A small amount still isn't a big deal but i just though this was interesting
heres the site I found it on, http://www.the-gi-diet.org/lowgifoods/

I'll eat them before working out sometimes, when I'm short on time. it gives me a great boost, between the sodium, and the simple carbs.
