    Mighty Bars

    I think I get it. Not all Epic bars are compliant. It 's important to check the ingredients even when a product claims to be compliant. The yolks and apple bar is okay because any sugar comes in the food, not an added sweetener. Thanks for the help.

    Why Sear Then Bake?

    I used to be a chef. I'm curious about why the progrtam recommends searing steak, burgers, chicken breasts, etc, in a fry pan and then baking.

It seems ti ne Mighty Bars may also be but I can't find any Whole30 references, so I would appreciate some input. Here ae comparions between Epic Bar and Mighty Bar ingredients and amounts of sugar. Epic Bar Bison Bacon Cranberry bison, uncured bacon (pork, water, brown sugar, salt, vinegar, celery powder, sea salt), dried cranberries (cranberries, apple juice concentrate), lactic acid, celery powder, sea salt is Bar 6 grams of sugar Chicken Egg Yolks and Apple Bar chicken, organic dried egg yolk, dried apples, encapsulated lactic acid**, sea salt, onion powder, garlic powder, cultured celery powder, chili powder, nutmeg, thyme, coriander seeds, black pepper, sage 2 grams of sugar Mighty Bar Organic Beef Jerky Organic grassfed beef, organic honey, sea salt, organic spices, organic garlic powder, cultured celery powder. 3 grams of sugar Uncured bacon and apple Organic grassfed beef, organic honey, organic uncured bacon – no nitrites or nitrates added* (organic pork, water, sea salt, organic honey, cultured celery juice powder, organic spices), sea salt, organic dried apples, encapsulated lactic acid, organic spices, cultured celery juice powder, organic garlic powder. *except those naturally occurring in celery powder & sea salt. 2 grams of sugar They seem very similar to me.

    Can I have D-Ribose>

    "Ribose is classified as a monosaccharide. Unlike glucose, ribose is not directly oxidized to provide energy for cellular metabolism. Rather, ribose is incorporated into molecules that are used to transfer energy from place to place within your cells. It also serves as a critical structural component of chromosomes and forms the basis of the transcriptional apparatus which translates genes into proteins. " from Livestrong.com. It supposedly has a mildly sweet taste, but, like Stevia, not one everyone likes. I'm interested because my wife has heart failure and D-Ribose is o recommended for it.
