"New Zone Bar flavors feature new technology
Dr. Sears has developed four new Zone Bar flavors based on his Controlled Release Nutrition™ technology to stabilize blood sugar and to control hunger throughout the day.
What makes these bars unique is the newest technology that is incorporated in them. All of these bars use only pure fructose syrup as a binding agent. Unlike high-fructose corn syrup, which has been the only binding agent available in the past, this new technology gives rise to a much lower glycemic load. What this means to you is greater satiation and more sustained freedom from hunger.
In addition, two of the bars use a totally new crisp technology that dramatically improves blood glucose stabilization. Before the development of this technology, Dr. Sears was not going to associate his name with the markedly inferior blood glucose response of traditional crisps used in standard bars. You are not going to find these new technology developments in standard mass-market bars because it is too costly. However, at Zone Labs our mission is to provide the state-of-art nutrition products to help you stay in the Zone. This is Dr. Sears’ guarantee to you. These new bars will demonstrate that sophisticated nutrient delivery and great taste can go together."
Ok, that is the info from the brochure, below is the nutrition panel from the Apple Cinnamon Bars as found here on the site.

This one actually has a tad bit more fiber. Each bar is a little different, but as you can see, there are plenty of versions of sweetner here other than fructose. It also surprised me that this bar not only contains fake sugar (spenda (sucralose) and fructoligosaccarides, but also safflower, sunflower oils,and soybean oil which if I remember correctly are high in Omega 6.
I will give the bars credit for including vitamins.
If you read the info about the new technology, it states that fructose is used as a binding agent, that doesn't mean it only includes fructose as a sweetner.
I'm still baffled by some of the ingredients and the amount of sweetner that is used as the carbs. Just my quandry
