haha, I think that means it gives you 30% of your RDA of zinc, not that the power bar is 30% zinc! :)

If you want to do the zinc thing, you should go with supplements - 30% of the RDA is still only about 3mg. To help with acne, you should take around 25mg (not too much more though as it can be toxic in larger doses - don't make the mistake of thinking "If 25mg helps in 12 weeks, 100mg should help in 3 weeks.")
