Larabars also have a lot of fructose (in the fruit), that may be the problem [fructose malabsorption-- FM], esp if you also have problems with foods such as brown rice, honey, maple syrup, and some fruits or vegetables (onion, carrot, iceberg lettuce, garlic, apples being the ones i can remember off the top of my head). also if you have problems with fructose/ HFSC in it (but if you are eating a raw diet, I'm betting you're not eating fructose!).
wheat is also high in fructose.
for me, my FM symptoms are different than my glutening symptoms [my FM sypmtoms are more noticable/ worse/ faster reacting, my gluten symptoms are more autoimmune- ish], but from what I understand, some people have similar symptoms with glutenings as they do eating too much fructose.
I myself can't have Larabars too often due to my FM, but they're just so yummy... and being on such a limited diet really sucks sometimes... I hafta have one once in a while... so, yeah, I understand the thought of not wanting to give them up!
