Too many Americans view all carbohydrates as "bad'. As a result, most Americans only get about half the recommended amount of dietary fiber. The problem is so acute that the USDA considers dietary fiber a "nutrient of public health concern" because low intakes are associated with potential health risks.

Toasted Honey Almond Tandem Bars contain all three vital types of dietary fiber: soluble fiber for heart health, insoluble fiber for digestive health and prebiotic fiber for gut health.

A single Tandem Bar contains 11g of dietary fiber- enough to increase dietary fiber intake by 40% of the recommended Daily Value. 

Tandem co-founder, former tech CEO and nonprofit leader Tony DiStefano reduced his bad (LDL) cholesterol by 33% in three months after adopting a high soluble fiber/ low saturated fat diet. Inspired by his results, Tony and his wife Susan worked with a team of experts in the fields of food science, nutrition and product development to perfect the recipe for Toasted Honey Almond Tandem Bars.

 

1. Soluble Fiber for Heart Health

There's significant scientific research linking Soluble Fiber to reductions in LDL cholesterol. According to the Mayo Clinic: "Soluble Fiber dissolves in water to form a gel-like material. It can help lower blood cholesterol and glucose levels."

Elevated blood cholesterol levels are one of the leading risk factors for heart disease.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in America. Over 600,000 Americans die from heart disease every year

The University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Medical Center explains that: "Although there is no dietary reference intake for Insoluble or Soluble Fiber, many experts recommend a total dietary fiber intake of 25-30 grams per day with about one-fourth- 6 to 8 grams per day- coming from Soluble Fiber."

Toasted Honey Almond Tandem Bars contain 6g Soluble and 5g Insoluble Fiber. They are the only snack bars that have been independently evaluated and certified by the American Heart Association.

The FDA recognizes a total of three ingredients, psyllium seed husk, oats and barley, for their potential to help reduce cholesterol. Two of these, psyllium seed husk and oats, are gluten free and are important components of Tandem Bars. Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 7 grams per day of soluble fiber from psyllium seed husk may reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol. One Tandem Bar contains 2.2 grams of this soluble fiber.

 2. Prebiotics for A Healthy Microbiome

Prebiotics nourish the growth of good bacteria that exist naturally in the human gut. They also help suppress bad bacteria. As a result, the consumption of prebiotic dietary fiber has multiple health benefits ranging from reducing inflammation and the symptoms associated with inflammatory bowel disease to promoting satiety and weight loss.

  • “Providing more dietary fiber for microbiota fermentation would likely result in weight loss, lower inflammation and decreased risk of Western diseases...
  • In a sea of unhealthy products, it’s wonderful to see a snack option that takes into account feeding our gut microbes. Personally, I like Tandem Bars a lot!"
-Dr. Justin Sonnenburg, Co-author The Good Gut,
Chief Investigator The Sonnenburg Lab,


 3. Insoluble Fiber For Digestion and Regularity

The Mayo Clinic also states that "Insoluble Fiber promotes the movement of material through your digestive system and increases stool bulk."

Insoluble Fiber does not dissolve in water and passes through the gastrointestinal tract relatively intact and, therefore, is not a source of calories. Insoluble Fiber provides "bulk" for stool formation and speeds up the movement of food and waste through the digestive system, which can help prevent constipation.
