Default Hydrogenated fats in Nitro-Tech bars?

1. SynthePro
a. (Whey Peptides (modified weight and partially predigested
(hydrolyzed) Whey Protein Concentrate (providing di-,tri-, oligo-, and
polypeptides) (shorter and longer chains of amino acids),

2. and new Ion-Exchanged specially filtered 97% Whey Protein Isolate,

3. l-leucine,
4. l-methionine,
5. l-phenylalanine,
6. lactoferrin
a. (SynthePro full spectrum whey protein fractions includes- Beta
Lactoglobulin ~55%, Alpha Lactalbumin ~15%, Glycomacropeptides ~21%,
Immunoglobulins ~3%, Bovine Serum Albumin ~2%, Lactoferrin 1%),

7. milk protein,
8. coating
a. (polydextrose, fractionated palm kernel oil, non-fat dry milk
solids, cocoa powder, soya lecithin (an emulsifier), salt ,natural
flavor, and sucralose),

9. glycerine,
10. micronized creatine monohydrate;
11. Insulogen
a. (guar gum, d-myo-inositol, glucomannan,taurine, pharmaceutical-grade
alpha lipoic acid, Inzitol (D-pinitol)[)]

12. Nitroxen
a. (l-arginine, glycosidal saponins, folic acid);

13. polydextrose,
14. cocoa powder,
15. natual flavors,
16. high fructose corn syrup,
17. maltitol syrup,
18. glutamine blend
a. (l-glutamine, glutamine peptides, calcium alpha ketoglutarate),

19. vitamin and mineral blend
a. (dicalcium phosphate, vitamin A palmitate, ascorbic acid, d-alpha
tocopheryl acetate, niacinamide, ferrous fumarate, zinc oxide, d-calcium
pantothenate, pyridoxine hydrochloride, copper
gluconate, cholecalciferol, riboflavin, thiamine mononitate, folic acid,
biotin, potassium iodide, and cyanocobalamin),

20. N-acetyl cysteine,
21. soybean lecithin oil,
22. canola oil,
23. potassium sorbate,
24. magnesium oxide.

fractionated palm kernal oil means, imo, that the manufacturer as
separated the oil, most likely according to boiling points ( unsaturated
oils would have lower boiling point), but no information as to which
fraction is used in the coating. But, again imo, I think it would be
the saturated fraction, to give structure to the coating. After all you
don't want your chocolate coating to run and stick to your hand, do you.
On the other hand this is not hydrogenated, and so, the trans-fatty acid
should be no higher than naturally occuring in palm oil.

to be fair to the maker of this bar, I think they purchase the chocolate
coating used. Which would explain the use of sucralose.
