Atkins Advantage Granola Bar, Peanut Butter

What is the "Hidden Sugar Effect?"It's common knowledge that  consuming foods that contain large amounts of sugar may cause your blood sugar to spike. But did you know other types of carbohydrates may have the same effect on blood sugar? At Atkins®, we cal this the "Hidden Sugar Effect." For example - a medium sized bagel has the same impact on blood sugar as 8 teaspoons of sugar.* An Atkins Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar has the same impact as 1.5 teaspoons of sugar.* *Counting Net Carbs? Glycerin is naturally sourced from vegetables and gives our bars a soft texture. Glycerin and fiber should be subtracted from total carbs since they minimally impact blood sugar. Total Carbs (18g) - Fiber (6g) - Glycerin (8g) = 4g Atkins Net Carbs
