Granola Bar Nutrition 

Granola bars are traditionally made with oats as the main ingredient and are a source of carbohydrates. Over the recent years, this grocery category has grown to include a greater variety of snack bars, including nut-based and keto. We use the term ‘snack bar’ to refer to all types of bars.

Granola Bar Nutrition Facts Labelling 

All of the granola bars included in our comparison chart below are packaged in a single serving. This means that the nutrition facts on the food package pertain to one full bar (or full package). Each granola bar is required to have the following nutrients on a nutrition facts table:

  • Calories
  • Fat (g)
    • Saturated fat (g)
    • Trans fat (g)
  • Carbohydrate (g)
    • Fibre (g)
    • Sugar (g)
  • Protein (g)
  • Cholesterol (mg)
  • Sodium (mg)
  • Potassium (mg)
  • Calcium (mg)
  • Iron (mg)

Some companies include additional nutrients, such as polyunsaturated fats or other micronutrients, but this will not be consistent across all cereal types as it is not part of the minimum requirements.
