I couldn't find a post on this, so here goes.

These are the closest thing DS has had to granola, and they're fabulous (we've tried the honey oat). They're filling and a great sub for the Special K bars that we'll sometimes get, because those are so sticky.

Here's a link to the product:

DS has fished off our first box, and it's time to buy more.

We sometimes get those. I think they are OK, but DS likes them. And they have somethung like 5 grams of fiber each--can't beat that!

I like the all-bran bars. Since they have so much dietary fiber, they are quite healthy! Excepting the sugar though...
I use them as energy bars and slather them with soy butter before volleyball games.

UGH! They have trans fats. Not enough to put on the label, I'm sure, but it all adds up. WHY do they make these "healthy" foods and put something so unhealthy in them? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

I bought these but it mentions psyllium allergy. I've never heard of this-has anyone had any problems with them? I haven't even opend the box yet.

Allergies
Serious allergic reactions including anaphylaxis, difficulty breathing/wheezing, skin rash, and hives have been reported after ingestion of psyllium products. Less severe hypersensitivity reactions have also been noted. Cross-sensitivity may occur in people with allergy to English plantain pollen ( Plantago lanceolata ), grass pollen, or melon. Plantain allergy may be associated with latex sensitivity, although it is not clear if this applies to psyllium as well. Workers in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries can become sensitized and develop allergic respiratory (breathing) symptoms due to handling bulk laxatives containing psyllium powder. Occupational asthma associated with psyllium exposure has been observed. Reactions may also occur from breathing in the dust or from skin contact.
Side Effects and Warnings
Psyllium-containing laxatives, cereals, and other products are generally believed to be safe. Important exceptions include those with repeated psyllium exposure (such as health care workers frequently handling bulk laxatives who are at risk for hypersensitivity reactions), and patients with significant pre-existing bowel abnormalities (such as gastrointestinal strictures or impaired motility) or prior bowel surgery.
(Most allergy to psyllium is evidently linked to occupational exposure.... sort of like latex and aerosol flour exposure.)
Saw one report linking it to the same plant source as guar gum, however.... I'll check.
Nope-- different plant sources. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

You know, it was because of the extra psyllium warning on them that helped me trust this when buying it initially. Wow--conscientiousness staring me in the face!
CM--I'll make sure DS, I, and any writing surface are free of this before any contact.
I've also not seen them with almonds.
Here's what's on their website:

I'm in NYC and order my groceries through Fresh Direct.com and when I click on the nutrition/ingredients info for these, each one says contains almonds. Very weird. I'll check out the boxes themselves the next time I'm in our Food Emporium.
