All of those grain flours are no bueno. We don't use any of that stuff at home personally. If we use "flour" it's coconut or almond.
I'm not really worried so much about who makes the Lara bars, as long as the ingredients are real foods, minimally processed, and limited in number. I'd prefer to make them myself, but that's time I can't spend doing other things I love. :-)
FWIW - I did notice a new type of Lara bar recently (while visiting family near Atlanta) that is full of crap I have no interest in. Interestingly, our local stores don't carry them. I do live in a "foodtopia" though with a lot of hippies.
Looking at the vegan cookies:
unbleached enriched wheat flour (enzyme added for improved baking, niacin, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin), organic evaporated cane juice, fruit juice, natural grain dextrins (brown rice syrup [not barley derived], grape juice concentrate), expeller pressed canola oil, xanthan and guar gums, potato starch, tapioca flour, leavening (calcium carbonate, calcium lactate [not dairy derived], citric acid), carbohydrate gum, pure vanilla extract, baking soda, baking powder, sea salt, soy lecithin, natural chocolate and vanilla flavors
So we have grain flour, then processed sugar, then fruit juice (ok), then more processed sugar, then corn oil.... beyond that is mostly ok until you get to the "natural" flavors which are anything but and usually quite scary in chemical makeup.
