Considering all the protein bars on the market, it is nearly impossible to choose which protein bar is the best for you. To make it even tougher, the packaging the bars come in is very attractive to the eye. We have all done it at one time or another - picked up the bar with the fanciest wrapper and turned it over to look at the nutrition facts panel. All too often we are disappointed at the sugar content or the high carb content or inferior ingredients. How are we supposed to find a great protein bar when there are so many choices?
Before we review what you should be looking for in a protein bar, I want to tell you what to avoid. By looking at what to avoid this will eliminate approximately 80% of the bars on the market. To put your mind at ease, we developed a bar that is as close to perfect as any bar ever made. It is called the Pure Omega 3 Protein Bar by Performance Biomedical Laboratories. This bar is quite advanced and contains the highest quality ingredients available.
Avoid Bars High In Sugar
The first ingredient you want to avoid are bars high in sugar content. This is the trickiest thing to look for because sugars come in a variety of different names. Basically, view the nutrition facts panel and go to “sugars” to look at how many grams of sugar the bar contains. Try to pick a bar that contains less than about 5 grams of sugar. Obviously, people want to eat a bar that tastes sweet. Some bars on the market actually have in excess of 25 grams of sugar! One nice thing about the Pure Omega 3 Protein Bar is that it only contains 4 grams of sugar.
Avoid Bars Containing Maltitol
The second ingredient you want to avoid is maltitol. The bar manufacturers know that high amounts of sugar are bad so they add a sugar alcohols such as “maltitol” that does not need to be listed as a sugar on the label. Maltitol is a sugar substitute that literally causes you to have an upset stomach and even diarrhea in many cases. You may ask yourself why would a manufacturer add an ingredient that upsets your stomach? The simple answer is it is a very “convenient” ingredient. It does not count as a sugar and some do not even list it as a carbohydrate! Nutrition handbooks actually describe maltitol as having a “laxative threshold” meaning that in even small amounts it acts as a laxative! Believe it or not, some of the bars on the market list maltitol as the first ingredient! The Pure Omega 3 Protein Bar contains no maltitol and does not meet the laxative threshold which means it will not cause an upset stomach.
Since the sugar content or shall I say “sweetener” content is such an issue these days I will go into more detail as to why the Pure Omega 3 Protein Bar is superior. Upon tasting the Pure Omega 3 Protein Bar you will be pleasantly surprised at how sweet the chocolate fudge flavor is. You may ask how is this bar so sweet, yet contains no maltitol and is so low in sugar? Performance Biomedical Laboratories engineered a flavor matrix consisting of polydextrose (a fiber) and brown rice syrup (a polysaccharide). One advantage of using polydextrose is that it only contains 1 calorie per gram versus 2 calories for maltitol and 4 calories in simple sugars. The primary benefit of using polydextrose is that it has a near-zero insulimic response meaning that there is no blood sugar spike! As you may know, insulin is a hormone that gets released when blood sugar levels are raised and is responsible for storing excess calories as fat.
The primary benefit of using brown rice syrup is that it has a very unique structure which allows it to be broken down more slowly than simple sugars. The slower it gets broken down, the less of an insulin spike you get. This slower absorption combined with the fiber from polydextrose allows the body to utilize the complex carbohydrates as energy instead of having to store them as fat for later use. In addition, this steady supply of energy from the brown rice may curb hunger between meals and provide steady insulin levels to assist in optimizing fat loss. As you can see the Pure Omega 3 Protein Bar is quite advanced and has every base covered.
Avoid Bars High In Calories and Carbohydrates
The third thing you want to watch out for are bars high in calories and carbohydrates. Remember, you are eating these bars to get some extra protein in your diet - not to get fat! Protein bars are not supposed to be candy bars. You want to find a bar that is roughly 200 calories or less and has less than 30 grams of carbs. Believe it or not, some of the bars on the shelves today have more than 400 calories consisting mainly of sugar and carbs. The idea is to be able to eat 1 or 2 protein bars a day to hold you over without getting fat and without having to run to the bathroom all day. The Pure Omega 3 Protein Bar was specifically designed to contain 20 grams of high quality protein, yet only provide 200 calories and only 29 grams of quality carbohydrates with 11 grams of those carbohydrates being fiber!
Avoid Bars High In Saturated and Trans Fat
The fourth thing you want to avoid is a bar high in fat. Some of the bars sold today actually have 10 or more grams of fat with lots of trans fat and/or saturated fat. If you look at the ingredients in these bars you will actually see very damaging oils such as partially hydrogenated oils. The Pure Omega 3 Protein Bar contains only 3.5 grams of total fat with no saturated fat or trans fats.
Avoid Bars Containing Poor Quality Proteins
Finally, the fifth thing you want to avoid is a bar containing poor quality proteins. Many of the protein bars contain an inferior protein called "hydrolyzed collagen" or "hydrolyzed gelatin". These types of gelatin proteins are inexpensive to produce and contain incomplete proteins. They are nearly worthless in helping you to maintain and build lean muscle tissue. But technically, they are a "protein". Do you think those other bar manufacturers really care about your body or their own profits when they add these poor quality proteins to their bars?
The idea is to look for a bar that has a high quality protein such as whey protein isolate or milk protein isolate. Remember, in general protein is the most expensive ingredient in the bar. The first place a manufacturer looks to cut costs is in the protein. Most of us would think that if it is called a “protein bar” it would at least contain a high quality source of protein such as whey protein isolate. Many of today’s bars do not even contain protein as the first ingredient listed on the ingredient facts panel! The Pure Omega 3 Protein Bar contains an engineered Molecular Matrix Protein containing milk protein isolate, whey protein isolate and calcium casseinate…and yes it is the first ingredient listed. This combination of fast and slow digesting proteins is what your body needs for sustained release of high quality amino acids to maintain a lean, muscular body.
A Bar Containing Essential Fatty Acids Is A Must
The single hottest selling nutritional supplements in the country today are omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are necessary for normal growth and development. Because the body can't make its own supply of omega-3, these essential fatty acids must be supplied by our diet. A typical diet in the Western World only contains about 10-15% of the omega-3 that the body needs, the remaining requirement must come from other sources. To help achieve a healthier balance, people should increase their intake of fatty fish or take omega-3 dietary supplements to guarantee the health benefits they confer. Other than taking fish oil capsules, there really aren’t too many other supplemental sources of omega 3 fatty acids. Finally, PBL has engineered a bar that tastes great, without any fishy taste whatsoever, and meets the daily needs for essential fatty acids in each bar.
The Pure Omega 3 Protein Bar Is An "Engineered Food Bar", Not A Candy Bar
If you are serious about your nutrition, fuel your body at regular intervals of four to six times per day. Yet, we have all had times when it was time to eat and couldn’t get to quality food. Today, more than ever, our busy schedules make it harder to prepare the perfect meal. The frustration of feeling your stomach rumble and your body getting weaker is something many people can’t comprehend. These are the times we wish our food could fit in our pocket and just take a minute to eat with no preparation needed.
Having a nutritional supplement that can give you clean, slow-release carbohydrates and high-biological value protein with minimal fat and sugar would be something that anyone serious about their physique would desire. This is exactly why Performance Biomedical Labs engineered the perfect protein bar. The Pure Omega 3 Protein Bar fits the nutritional profile for anybody serious about their nutrition.
