NuGo Nutrition, a fast-growing lifestyle brand in the natural foods category, introduces two new certified vegan NuGo Slim flavors: Chocolate Mint and Toasted Coconut with 16-18 grams of protein. The OU Kosher Pareve, gluten-free and diabetes-friendly bars contain only 3 grams of sugar, all coming from the real dark chocolate coating with added sweetness from natural chicory root fiber. There is no maltitol or artificial sweeteners in NuGo Slim.

Following the success of the mint and coconut flavors in the NuGo Dark line, NuGo Nutrition received many requests from consumers for more vegan low sugar flavors, specifically mint and coconut. Passionate fans shared that they were ecstatic to finally be able to find a delicious vegan high protein, low sugar bar with clean ingredients, and they wanted more flavors. PETA recommended NuGo Slim Crunchy Peanut Butter as one of the best vegan protein bars for workouts.

Additionally, individuals with diabetes and prediabetes are major NuGo Slim consumers because of the truly delicious taste with a very low glycemic index. GI Labs of Toronto, Canada, the experts on the glycemic index, tested NuGo Slim vegan high-protein bars. They attained a very low glycemic index of 29, validating that NuGo Slim is digested slowly. Low glycemic foods, a marker for foods that minimize blood sugar spikes, are also an ideal choice for consumers concerned with weight management.

Most low sugar or sugar-free bars use artificial sweeteners and maltitol, a sugar alcohol which can cause gastric distress and a bad aftertaste. Maltitol has a glycemic index response similar to table sugar. Instead, NuGo Slim is sweetened with natural chicory root fiber with a 0 glycemic index response. This is why NuGo Slim has the lowest published glycemic index of any high protein, low sugar bar.

NuGo Slim tastes so delicious because it is coated in luscious real dark chocolate, not a fake dark chocolate coating used on other low sugar bars. Other brands use palm kernel oil to make an imitation chocolate coating, resulting in waxy and overly sweet bars.
