Nutrition bars are made with healthy ingredients that are derived from real foods. The ingredients can range from egg whites, milk (unless dairy-free formulations are requested), nuts, and legumes such as pecans, hazelnuts, cashews, walnuts, peanuts, and almonds, to various forms of protein and high fiber additives, including rice and oats. Dates are sometimes used as a natural sweetener and binder. They also offer great taste.
