If we could, we’d have waffles for dinner. And lunch. And sure, breakfast, why not! That’s why we baked the sweet taste of maple syrup and the buttery flavor of fresh waffles into every bite of this crunchy new “uncereal” bar! Waffles. Allday. Errday!
Regular cereal is made from grains. BEYOND cereal is made from protein! The Quest “Beyond Cereal” Bar has all the sweet, comforting crunch of a junk food cereal bar, but with the incredible nutritional profile you know you can expect from Quest. It’s a bar for the kid in all of us who loves cereal, but dares to GO AGAINST THE GRAIN.

WHERE DOES ALLULOSE COME FROM? Allulose occurs in small quantities in nature, in things like maple syrup, figs, and raisins. It's only recently become available for use by food companies.
HOW MANY CALORIES DOES ALLULOSE HAVE? Allulose only contributes 0.4 Calories per gram instead of the 4.0 Calories per gram contributed by table sugar. That's 1/10th the calories!
WHY IS IT LISTED AS A SUGAR? The FDA requires Allulose to be listed in the sugars section on the nutrition facts panel even though it doesn't have the Calories of regular sugar.
