FDA: Kind Bars Not So Kind to Your Health

The Food and Drug Administration is tearing into several Kind fruit and nut bars, blasting the company’s claims they are healthy.

Apparently there is a federal criterion for what is considered healthy, and Kind doesn’t meet it, according to a recent FDA warning letter to the company.

The agency singled out the labels for four Kind bars: almond and apricot, almond and coconut, peanut butter-dark chocolate and protein, and dark chocolate-cherry cashew and antioxidants.

The agency took aim at several claims that the bars were “healthy,” including that they were low in sodium and were a good source of fiber.

However, none of the bars meet the federal definition for “healthy.” Yes, there is actually a definition.
