A Healthy Snack For Getting B17

One of the important supplements that I take to fight cancer in my body is B17. To learn about foods that contain B17 and the reason I take it, read My Cancer Answer Arsenal, Part 2.

Apricot Power, makers of the B17 supplement I take, has introduced ApriSnack™, a healthy food bar packed with B17. This raw food treat is filled with nutrition that will satisfy your hunger for hours because of its healthy fats and 8 grams of protein. ApriSnack is 20% larger (by weight) than a Clif Bar, which contains added sugars like evaporated cane juice. The only sweetener in ApriSnack is a smidge of stevia leaf powder—the last ingredient.

I call this a snack bar, but really it's a meal bar. And lest you think this is a cardboard-tasting bar, think again. It's yummy!

Here's a list of the ingredients in ApriSnack:
Dates, Rolled Oats, Thompson Raisins, Sesame Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Apricot Kernels, Almonds, Cashews, Filberts/Hazelnuts, Pecans, Walnuts, Prunes, Brown Rice Flour, Brazil Nuts, Raspberry Granules, Grape Seed, Oil, Walnut Oil, Figs, Salt, Quinoa Flour, Beet Powder, Kidney Beans, Amaranth, Barley, Flaxseed, Millet, Rye, Banana Powder, Peas, Pumpkin Seeds, Tangerine Tart Powder, Blueberry Powder, Nutritional Yeast, Peach,Tart Powder, Guava Tart Powder, Ginger Powder, Cinnamon, Aloe Leaf Dust Powder, Clove, Freeze Dried Strawberries, Coconut, Lemon Oil, Orange Oil, Stevia Leaf Powder.
Compare that to the ingredients in the Apricot Clif Bar and you'll see the difference:
Organic Brown Rice Syrup, ClifPro® (Soy Rice Crisps [Soy Protein Isolate, Rice Flour, Rice Starch, Barley Malt Extract], Organic Roasted Soybeans, Organic Soy Flour), Organic Rolled Oats, Organic Toasted Oats (Organic Oats, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice), Dried Apricots (Apricots, Evaporated Cane Juice, Rice Flour, Citric Acid, Ascorbic Acid), Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, ClifCrunch® (Organic Oat Fiber, Inulin [Chicory Extract], Organic Milled Flaxseed, Organic Oat Bran, Psyllium), Dried Apricots, Organic Date Paste, Organic Sunflower Oil, Natural Flavors, Lemon Juice Concentrate, Citric Acid, Sea Salt, Colored with Annatto.
