These potent bars have more protein for more staying power. If you are on a low calorie diet, we recommend you check the calorie content of each product you are considering as some high protein bars can be higher in calories than others.
High-protein bars are for people who are carefully watching their intake of carbs. High protein bars usually contain from fifteen to thirty grams of protein, often in the form of soy protein, whey protein, or egg protein. The higher the protein content, the dryer the texture of the bar, which can make them unappetizing, depending on your palate.
Sick of bland, dry, high calorie protein bars? So am I, so I tried almost every bar out there and compiled my top 5 best tasting protein bars list. In a previous article of mine I outlined some of my favorite protein powders (). Next, I want to tackle some protein snacks and bars that you can use to help satisfy your daily protein requirements in your quest to get lean and ripped.
Greens Plus belongs in tier one-great ingredients and the PB/Choc is very good. Judging only by the ingredients, I concur with the VPX and Oatmega placements, but haven’t tasted them. Rise could use some chocolate, but they’re good and have only 3 ingredients. Quest bars suck; I can’t stand their texture, after several tries. AND they contain sucralose, which drops them a couple of tiers. Last time I checked, even the stevia ones also have sucralose (or was it some other ingredient problem, like soy?). I’m mystified as to why some people like them. You’ve missed several unquestionably tier one bars: Square Bars, RX bars, Bonk Breaker High Protein bars; and Epic Turkey bars. 22 Days PB/Choc is a good tier two bar.
