Too much sugar!
Bought these for my mum as she has high cholesterol, but she didn’t like them as they’re too sweet. These bars are a good idea in theory, although each bar only contains 1.6g of plant sterols (against the recommended daily amount of 2-3g if you’re trying to lower cholesterol). They contain a lot of sugars (glucose syrup is listed as second ingredient) and according to the box, each 40g bar contains 13g of sugars. Everyone I know who has high cholesterol is also overweight, so these bars are no good if you’re trying to lose weight or have other health conditions that sugar exasperate (such as arthritis/gout). If the makers could re-work the recipe, removing loads of the sugars, these would probably be a lot better.
