Protein Bars…just candy bars in disguise!

By on February 4, 2009

I have never really liked the taste of Protein Bars.  Most of the time they taste like I dipped my tongue in a bucket of Spackle…and yes, working in construction I tasted my share of Spackle.

What really is a so-called “health food” doing with all those preservatives, fillers, high fructose corn syrup and my favorite enemy in the world…trans-fats. I always wondered how they got away with that. This doesn’t sound like a health food to me.

My other favorite additive they put in Protein Bars is “Sugar Alcohols” such as maltitol, sorbitol and xylitol to help keep them “Low Carb”.  The funny thing about these ingredients is the Dietetic Association of  America states that exessive amounts of Sorbitol can have a “laxative effect” and can cause disruption in your GI tract (basically gas)…yep, you’ll be the hit of the party!  What does that mean?  That if you are chomping all day on these bars thinking they’re healthy that you better be close to a bathroom and bring plenty of toilet paper.

Well I’m happy to say that my friends over at Prograde Nutrition have developed something that absolutely will replace the “Protein Bar”.  Prograde decided not to create a “Protein Bar” but a “snack bar” called Prograde Cravers that is totally 100% “organic” and taste awesome.  They have literally been called the “Best tasting bars on the planet”

I’m excited about Prograde cravers because they are finally something that I can recommend to my clients, friends and colleagues that are actually healthy and only contain 180 calories (the perfect caloric value for a healthy snack).  I have to tell you I love them and would never recommend something that I wouldn’t eat myself.
