no hydrogenated oils, nothing bad that I can tell, no high fructose corn syrup .I have yet to try one, but will soon. They all have about 3 grams of fiber (need more , that would be better) and a few grams of protein each. they come in a few different flavors. most that I have read comments from liked the blueberry the best. They have regular oat, apple and cinnamon and blueberry. I copied and pasted nutrition info, for the apple and cinnamon, and it is almost exact to the others as well. not too many carbs. Just thought I'd share, cause a lot of you are probably like me, and always looking for some good portable things to take with you. So has anyone tried these and what did you think?

I was just diagnosed w/t2 and am figuring out what spikes my blood sugar, etc. Weelll…Belvita Breakfast snacks wreak complete havoc on my numbers and only eating two of them. Beware - they're very processed.

I tried the blueberry no others yet. I noticed my numbers are higher than usual after eating only two of these, like an hour or two hours later, I have tested at both those times. So I won't be eating 4 all at once then. (4 per pkg one serving) wish they had more fiber and protein per bar, have to eat 4 just to get 3 grams of fiber…so having some fruit with them like it suggests is a good idea, maybe some low fat or natural peanut butter on some of them might be good too. I heard they have chocolate out now too.

My husband swears by these we have been getting them for about a year now, he is t1 and doesn't like to eat too much in the morning before work. He has the berry ones with coffee which take his fasting bs from 6(ish) to around 9, with aprox 28 units of insulin which lasts him until around midday

back before I had to become gluten free, I used to eat the blueberry ones. I liked them alot and they were portable, so sometimes I ate just 2 for a snack. Worked fine that way too. Didn't try the other flavors, but the blueberry was great!
