What is the difference between this bar and the other leading bars,
like Dr. Atkin’s?
Most other bars contain hydrogenated oils, palm kernel or cotton
seed oil, sucrose and/or other additives, such as non-nutritive
sweeteners, which Think Thin does not.
What is the benefit of soy/whey protein?
Soy is derived from plants, Whey is derived from milk. Soy has the
benefit of strong Isoflavone antioxidant activity. Whey’s
benefit is it’s smooth functionality when used with soy.
What is the benefit of Maltitol Crystals and Maltitol Syrup
as a sweetener?
Maltitol is a derivative of corn. Corn is broken down into Maltose
and processed through Hydrogenation and Hydrolysis into Maltitol
Syrup or Crystals. The crystals and syrup are 65% and 90% as sweet
as sugar respectively, with 25% less calories. It is absorbed more
slowly into the blood stream than sucrose (sugar) and consequently,
allows insulin to be released into the blood stream more slowly.
As a result, sugar SPIKING is diminished.
What is Dairy Oil?
This is the combination of the oil from milk and the oil from butter
combined to give the coating on the bar its smooth texture.
What are “non-impact” and “non-effective”
Ingredients that count as a non-impact carb are glycerin, fiber
and maltitol. The FDA has labeled these ingredients as carbohydrates,
as they are not a protein or fiber, but also acknowledges that they
do not effect your body like a carbohydrate...so they can be deducted
from the total carb count seen on the nutrition panel, giving you
the number of carbs to count if you are dieting or diabetic. The
number of effective or impact carbs is the number of carbs that
will effect or impact your body like a simple carbohydrate.
Are the wrappers current with the newest FDA regulations?
Yes. The FDA’s new requirements are all met with the non-effective
carb statement and full disclosure of the carb count. These requirements
have been met with the full disclosure of non-impact carbs.
Is Think Thin 100% Natural?
Yes. We use all natural ingredients, including the Vitamin E.
What is the benefit of being Wheat & Gluten FREE?
Currently, 7 out of 9 of our flavors are wheat and gluten free and
all nine will be wheat & gluten free by the time our newest
wrappers are finalized. The benefit of this is directly related
to many of the medically restricted consumers who have a demand
for products that are indeed free of wheat & gluten. People
with Celiac’s Syndrome cannot digest wheat & gluten properly,
and this disease can be life threatening.
Does Think Thin contain any animal products?
No. Think Thin does have dairy and is not considered “vegan”…but
be assured there are no animal products in our bars.
