Review: Do More Bars – Easy to Eat, Gluten Free Goodness

Do More Bars gluten free whole food energy bars review

Do More Bars are a delicious, gluten-free energy bar that come from a small baker near some of our favorite trails in Pisgah Forest, NC.

The cereal bars mix organic whole-grain crisped brown rice with various nuts and fruits in five flavors: Cherry Almond, Date Pecan, Orange Cranberry Pecan, Pineapple Coconut and Raisin Peanut. What we really like about them is the light flavor and consistency, which makes them both easy to digest during rides and palatable because they’re not overly sweet. There’s no preservatives, sulfites, hydrogenated oils, “marshmallow cream”, corn syrup or artificial flavors or colors…just a few simple, whole food ingredients.

If you’re a subscriber to SchwagBox, you got a chance to try one in January’s sample box. If not, they’ll hook you up with a free sample (you pay postage) through their website. Like it? Bars are available in single, 6-, 12- and 24-packs. They’re also available in Earth Fare grocery stores, select Ingles locations and others. Good stuff from a small company – we like it.

Beware of brown rice arsenic.

Organic rice baby cereal, rice breakfast cereals, brown rice, white rice—new tests by Consumer Reports have found that those and other types of rice products on grocery shelves contain arsenic, many at worrisome levels. Though brown rice has nutritional advantages over white rice, it is not surprising that it might have higher levels of arsenic, which concentrates in the outer layers of a grain. The process of polishing rice to produce white rice removes those surface layers, slightly reducing the total arsenic and inorganic arsenic in the grain. In brown rice, only the hull is removed. Arsenic concentrations found in the bran that is removed during the milling process to produce white rice can be 10 to 20 times higher than levels found in bulk rice grain.

Are we done with the gluten scare yet? I mean, except for those with gluten allergies, the only real threat involved with eating products with gluten is decreasing the profits of companies selling gluten free products.
