This Week's Most Popular Pin from Pinterest:
Kion Bar is a lowish-carb, high-fat, moderate-protein bar, rather than a high-fat, slightly greasy, low-energy “ketogenic” bar that can cause a gut bomb, especially during rigorous exercise, with zero dairy, zero soy, and zero whey protein isolate. It contains only hypoallergenic protein sources, is low in lectins and free of gluten, saponins and other notorious gut assailants, has plenty of minerals and electrolytes, adequate fiber (but no IMO’s!) and is a bar that supports recovery with sufficient levels of all essential amino acids and antioxidants, without excess protein to create an insulin spike or aging effect, and that contains just enough carbohydrate for liver and muscle glycogen restoration and appetite satiety, without necessarily spiking blood sugar.
