The FDA Announced That Kind Bars Are Not Healthy

According to the FDA, at least four of Kind’s “healthy” products—including the only decent flavor, Almond & Coconut—are mislabeled as to their nutrient contents and health benefits.

Specifically: “Your products do not meet the requirements for use of the nutrient content claim ‘healthy’ on a food label,” FDA compliance director William Correll said in a letter to the company made public today.

Under FDA regulations, only foods with less than one gram of saturated fat per serving can legally be branded as “healthy.” Not a good look for the aforementioned Almond & Coconut, which comes with five grams per serving—more than a third of the American Heart Association’s recommended daily intake.
