View Full Version : Keto Bars
26-09-2003, 11:49 AM
A few weeks ago I tried a KETO bar by Metagenics. It has only 8.5g carbs per bar (60g) and tasted delish (well for a protien bar anyhow). But I can't seem to find any health stores that sell it and when I enquired, was told it was a naturopathic line and shops can't sell it unless they have a naturopath on site. Is this true??? If it is, it's pretty silly...is there any way to get around it?

Maybe go visit a natropath, seeing as they can get them, or phone around and see what health shops have a Natropath there..

Yes thats true Coruba, I'm pretty sure you were able to purchase from their website but not anymore.
There's plenty of LC protien bars around though. I've tried quite a few now with not much luck but I'm pretty fussy.
Lately though I've been buying the Goliath (7.9g carbs) ones as they taste good and are on special for $29.95 for a box of 12 and I always love a bargain hehe
Theres more around though that are much lower in carbs but these are the only ones I've liked so far.

That's right Coruba- you can only get Keto stuff from a naturopath. Check out their website, they have a list of practitioners who sell their stuff. Be warned though- I'v heard stories of people being constantly harassed by naturopaths to try and get them to tak part in their diet program.

I purchase them from Friendlies chemist in Townsville. They post them out to me or I have a frient pick them up.
I also thought they were only 3g of carbs per bar????? I will have to have a look at one when I get home.
However, go to
and put in your postal code and it should give you a list of places you can purchase them from.
You can get them at the Galleria health food shop in Morley. WA.:D
They are only about 3g carbs a bar, when you take of the(I can't think what it is called, help me out here Moonie, RBB) from the nutritional information it reduces the carbs.:D

The nutritional label says a total of 8.5g of carbs per 60g bar, however, of this, only 1.7g is "absorbable", the rest is fibre (unabsorbable).

If they are an american bar you would only count the 1.7g as net carbs as you deduct the fibre...
If it is an aussie bar, then it is probably the sugar alcohols that you would deduct...

Okay...now I am confused...so what does that make the final carb count of those bars?????
I do like the sound of 3g...coz I really want to eat one but it would kill the induction carb limit!! LOL

I had a look on their site but couldn't find any nutritional info. They are meant for keto though and by going by what others are saying, 3g is probably correct.
I noticed on their site they sell carnitine powder really cheap, gonna have to find a stockist.

I found some info here..

Looks like 5g then.

Can get them at Go Vita health food shops quite often (the one down the road from me sells them at West End in Brisbane QLD), my gym also sells them via the nutritionalist there.

Found a local chemist who is going to order them in for me. She (the phamacy naturopath) was pushing me to do their program...didn't see the point if I was already following an Atkins program! I also ordered the keto powder coz a friend said it was REALLY yummy...it's gotta beat the one I've got now anyhow!

Let us know what you think of the powder, always on the lookout
My health food store carries Keto locally...and yes, the shakes and bars are delish. Great for snacks, however I have found that I loose more weight if I cut them out completely. :(
