CNS and CBL - Quest bars?

  1. CNS and CBL - Quest bars?


    Are quest bars ok during the no/low carb days of CNS and CBL?


  2. Im not sure what CNS and/or CBL is but there is a controversy surrounding quest bars, specifically the carb count on the quest label

    CBL: Carb Backloading

    As far as whether or not they're ok, there's really not a solid answer to that because of the fiber count controversy.

  4. What's the controversy exactly? They use IMO (Isomalto-Oligosaccharide) as their main ingredient, a plant derived fiber source. Is this stuff controversial?

    I recall them being under investigation for mislabeling, the listed caloric values being lower than tested

    Quest bars here in Canada are all labelled differently, we count IMO's higher

    I doubt the difference whatever it is would have any impact in a good diet.

    For Ketosis I can't say for sure if it would be a hindrance.

  9. FWIW, Breezy11 said he tested himself with keto sticks after eating Quest bars and said he was still good.
