Most of us could use more fiber in our diets. So the other morning when I needed a quick breakfast that I could grab and eat, the Luna Fiber: Vanilla Blueberry bar hit the spot. The new line of fiber bars from Luna – which is part of Clif Bar – pack extra fiber in a palatable bite.
The Luna Fiber bar isn’t huge, it’s 1.41 ounces and contains 7 grams of fiber and 4 grams insoluble fiber. While the size is not huge, the fiber fills you up. If you’re still hungry when you finish the bar, wait a few minutes before reaching for something else, the fiber will do its job.
I am not sure what I was expecting the bar to be like, but was surprised that it looked similar to a Fig Newton, with the blueberry in the center, wrapped inside the rest of the bar. It’s clear that the outer bar is fiber-rich. While the bar was soft, it was almost dry. It was, however, very tasty.
In addition to fiber, the bar also has folic acid, calcium, vitamin D and iron. Luna groups these nutrients as the “Core 4″ combo. The bar is also 70 percent organic. A total 3 grams of fat make up 30 calories from fat. None of those grams of fat are from saturated or trans fat.
Other flavors include Luna Fiber bars in Chocolate Raspberry and Peanut Butter Strawberry.
