The use of high-quality chocolate could be considered one of the ‘secrets’ of Built Bar. Our perfectly tempered dark chocolate mixes with our naturally flavored protein base to produce a flavor combination reminiscent of high quality candy or dessert. The lingering chocolate aftertaste – your last impression of the bar – is in sharp contrast to other protein bars which have quite negative aftertastes. Though our choice of chocolate does contribute a small amount of sugar to the bar, we have found that the fiber and protein present greatly decrease the rate of sugar absorption, giving no noticeable blood sugar spike in either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetics.
Natural Flavors, No Coloring
Built Bar only uses natural flavors and no coloring.
Whey Protein Isolate
There are several sources of protein used in protein bars. Three most often are whey, egg whites and products from soy beans. Whey protein isolate was chosen for the bars because it is a complete protein, which means it has all the essential amino acids, it has high digestibility, and a mild taste.
The isolate version we use does not contain casein or lactose, which are the components of milk that some people are allergic to. Very few individuals are sensitive to whey protein isolate.
After research, we eliminated soy as a possible protein base. Though it is a complete protein, it has an unpleasant, beany taste that must be masked. Second, and possibly more important, is that soy contains various enzymes that inhibit the digestion of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. These anti-nutritional enzymes actively prevent you from getting nutrition. Soy protein is flexible in its texture and has a low cost, but the other attributes make it a poor choice for a general protein bar.
We researched using egg white, which is a widely available, complete protein and has a digestibility almost equal to whey protein. A major problem with egg white is that the sources of egg white protein process their powder in different ways. One batch might absorb a certain amount of water while another will absorb much less. It was this inconsistency that led us away from egg whites.
The coconut bar is my favorite (I got the 6 bar sample), and i dont even like coconut! Lol. I prefer keeping them in the fridge, and the chocolate has a nice crack to it, with the filling being like a yummy marshmallow. I'm on WW, and this gives a delicious fix for candy, with only 3 SP, and actually has GOOD ingredients! I am thankful for these!!
These bars taste as close to Mounds bar as you are going to get without the calories. They are great for a quick pick me up without all the grit of many other energy bars. Taste great!
I got my first box today and omg they’re soooo yummy!!! Can’t wait to order again
These bars are amazing, and the customer service is so helpful and personal. This company goes above and beyond to serve and satisfy its customers. Thanks Built Bar!
The coconut is my go-to flavor! Reminds me of a mounds candy bar. Delicious, good coconut flavor. I enjoy the texture of these bars.
I purchased the small box and these were by far the best in the box. I had one and wished I had more. It is amazing how these tasks like a real chocolate bar, but are packed full of protein!
