Hi,

I just saw a new item in my Amazon feed - Quest Hero bars? Looks like they just came out last week. I'm a big fan of many of the Quest bars already, wondering if anyone has tried these Hero versions yet?

13 s of sugar is too much sugar for me.

I was stocking up on my regular items at the health food store and they threw one of the new bars in for me to sample. It was only 200 calories, but 12 grams of sugar. I tried it anyway, and got hit with RH a half hour later. I won't be trying another one.

Just too much sugar.

Too good to be true I guess?

Most of the sugar is the form of Allulose, so guess it didn't work out being as blood sugar neutral for you. Have you tried any other products with Allulose? Seems like it's pretty new from what I gather?

I don't think I've tried anything else with Allulose. But even the stuff that other protein bars use as a so-called "fiber" doesn't act as fiber at all. It has calories, and effects blood sugar very quickly. Another reason that doing net carbs on processed foods doesn't work.

I am still pre-op for a few more days and I tried one of these. It made me feel so sick, nauseated and shaky for about an hour. I love the regular quest bars but the hero one was terrible! Whatever allulose is, I don't think it agrees with me!
