Lab results OF DETOUR bars.
Here's an email I got from thepowerstore.com
Recently, the delicious-tasting Detour bar came under
fire for allegedly not providing what the label claims
to be so for Calories, Carbs and Fat at a minimum.
We recently sent a bar to Covance Labs in Madison
Wisconsin for testing. We've used Covance for years
for testing our own ISP line. No lab is perfect,
however, so the saying "don't put all your eggs in
one basket" is applicable.
Anyway, here are the results from their testing.
Claim / Actual
Calories: 310 / 305
Total fat: 10g / 9.68g
Total Carbs: 25g / 27.8g
Protein: 30g / 26.6g
In case we lose the formatting here. The left
column is Next Protein's CLAIM and the right
column is the ACTUAL according to Covance.
In my opinion there is no reason to be ticked
off at Next Proteins here. The calories are
within 5. The fat is within .32g. The carbs
are within 2.8g and the <a href="http://www.allsportsnutrition.com/listproducts.php?style=category&value=PROTEIN" target="_blank">protein</a> is within 3.4.

That is the new detour bar, since they revamped the numbers and the formula, They taste different now. But good to hear they meet the label..
