Caramel Toffee with Sea Salt CLIF Bars Review

TLDR

CLIF Bars are relatively healthy energy bars that are useful to replenish carbohydrates while exercising.

Pros

  • They're very convenient when you don't have time to prepare a real meal.
  • They're very convenient during a workout or hike when your hands are dirty.
  • They're a good source of fiber with 4g (16% DV) of fiber.

Cons

  • They contain at least 4 added sweeteners: barley malt extract, organic brown rice syrup, organic cane sugar, and organic cane syrup. Sweeteners improve taste and are okay in moderation. However, sweeteners also add unnecessary calories, often make you hungry, and raise your blood sugar.
  • They contain soy protein isolate as an ingredient. Soy protein isolate is less nutritious than a whole grain. It also often contains unhealthy additives like aluminum and hexane. Some people are also allergic to or intolerant of soy products.
  • They contain "natural flavors" as an ingredient. Natural flavors are not necessarily bad but they do represent an unknown as they can be a variety of different ingredients. Ideally, it's better to be aware of all the ingredients you eat.
  • They contain at least 5 potential allergens: organic roasted soybeans, organic soy flour, soy flour, soy lecithin, and soy protein isolate.
  • They contain refined flour (organic soy flour, rice flour, and soy flour) instead of a whole grain equivalent. Refined flour is usually less nutritious than the whole grains, legumes, or nuts its made from. In addition, flour generally raises your blood pressure more than whole grains.

Our Rankings

Are CLIF Bars healthy? Are they good for you?

We believe CLIF Bars are healthier than fast food, potato chips, and other kinds of food. However, we believe there are healthier brands of bars like RXBars, Kind Bars, or Rise Bars.

Many flavors of CLIF Bars have as many as 5 or 6 different sweeteners as well as refined flour and a variety of soy ingredients. They're also pretty high in carbohydrates and are most useful during strenuous exercise when your glycogen levels are depleted.
