Larabar vs. SoyjoyPosted: July 21, 2007 | Author: ThomasPowell | Filed under: Uncategorized | Leave a comment »
Larabar wins hands down. Much better, sweeter taste. Moist texture. Pecan Pie has been one of my favorites. Over 50% fat, but most is polyunsaturated or monounsaturated fat. 100% raw food, made from dates, nuts, etc…
Soyjoy is dry, flavorless (mango coconut was horrible). 60 out of 140 calories from fat. 3.5g of the fat is saturated. Other flavors have 40 out of 140 from fat, with 2g of saturated. One of the things that surprised the most was the ingredients list:
Ingredients: Whole Soybean Powder, Raisin, Butter (from milk), Sugar, Dried Coconut, Frozen Egg, Maltodextrin (natural fiber source), Dried Papaya, Dried Mango, Dried Pineapple, Natural Flavors, Salt.
I have nothing against soy, but I’d figure that soy would generated be eaten as a meat or daily substitute. Soyjoy is definitely not a vegan product, despite the name. It’s not very enjoyable, either.
