New types of bars have emerged, focusing on features such as "fiber" or unprocessed "whole foods." tested, tasted, and compared the nutrients in 20 bars. Among the surprises we found:

    • Most of the fat in some bars was saturated ("bad") fat.
    • A "whole food" bar contained more calories per gram than most other bars.
    • A top ingredient in some bars is sugar alcohols, which may contribute to gas and bloating.
