The cons are that they contain soy protein isolate. Soy can inhibit thyroid function. Your menstrual cyle can be affected, your overall metabolism affected and that is only a few of the many serious consequences of thyroid disfunction. Soy is not the health food that clever marketing and advertising agencies make it out to be. It is very scary, not healthy.
Soy depletes some vitamins and minerals that is why the power bar needs to add them. Be suspect of ANY food that has to add in vitamins and minerals. Ask yourself WHY if this food is so nutritious does it need to add supplementation.
When you eat fresh fruit or vegetables is there anything added to them to make them healthier? Also, how about all of the additives that are in the bars?
