    Lower-iron energy bars?

    I've been using Power Bars for a long time but my wife informs me (and I've read, too) that too much iron is not good for men. PBs have 25% of daily iron. Any other bars that taste good but don't have that much in them? Thanks!

    if nobody has good options, you could think about making your own and freezing them. i have heard the same thing about iron.

    ve you been diagnosed with hemochromatosis or other similar states of hyperabsorption? If not, I think your risk is pretty low for accumulating excess Fe+ in the liver or other tissues. It is my understanding that the risks of excessive Fe+ intake are in supplemenation along with a diagnosis of hemochromatosis.

    As Bill in Houston notes, making your own is the best way to allay your fears. I always wanted to use the word allay.
