I guess this video is misleading. Have you looked at the ingredient list of Halo bar?

They mislead the consumer by using the terminology Juice cane instead of sugar. Also their claims of "healthy snack" is also misleading, as this bar does not meet the definition of "healthy" stated in the CFR.

Low in sugar? ...I guess this company needs to review their claims and not mislead the consumer, also you need to watch what you say in those clips,I trust the information you list in your newsletter but I was about to be fooled with this one.

One more thing...is there a canola oil that is not GMO? I doubt it!

Canola oil is not GMO. Canola oil is the consumer-friendly name for rapeseed oil. Rapeseed is originally from Canada, and since rapeseed is not a good name for a product, the term "canola" (oil from Canada) is used. If you want a canola oil that is certified by the non-GMO project, look for Whole Harvest expeller-pressed canola oil.
