Always watch for the artificial sweetener erythritol, that is mixed with many of the artificial sweeteners on the market.  
This sweetener has been added to many, many items and it is being considered a major health risk.  The scientists considered erythritol levels to potentially grow high enough to trigger changes in platelet function.  The results they found suggest that consuming erythritol can increase clot formation.  This, in turn, could increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.

 

As a diabetic, I have found this sweetener mixed in with almost every item I use as a "break" from my diabetic diet.  I have all but given it all up so I'm not left with much.  But diabetics are prone to stroke and heart attacks and I'm not willing to chance it.  Anyway, just a word of warning regarding this particular sweetener..  


Ny eyes cannot see well so I used a magnifiying glass and couldn't find that ingred. Maybe under a diff. name, but I can

t see Andrew putting that in, he is careful.

I did get some keto stuff and saw it and returned.

Re: Andrew Lessman secure Bars

The peanut butter bars have Allulose in them? I don't see that ingredient in the Brownie Almond or Coconut Almond? 

 

What are the drawbacks of allulose?
 
If consumed in large quantities, allulose may cause some stomach discomfort, including gassiness, bloating and queasiness. That's true of most other artificial sweeteners, too. And contrary to some popular myths, the National Cancer Institute says research hasn't shown artificial sweeteners to cause cancer. Aug 26, 2022

I keep reading the reviews and some are saying that the stevia is causing gas.  I think they are forgetting that fiber can have that effect.  I've read that drinking more water will help with that.

There is Allulose in the peanut butter bars which have a gassiness, bloating etc side effect if you eat too much. I don't see Allulose in the other two flavors. It does say drinking water helps.
