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 Flavoring and Coloring
Built Bar only uses natural flavors and natural colors.
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.
These are the absolute best protein bar. Very expensive, wish they were a little cheaper but absolutely amazing
Love love theee bars. If you are on WW they are 3 points! They are filling and help with a sweet tooth without completely over doing it. I would love to see options to create your own box of favorites! Shipping is fast and you will love every bite.
But they are not not! Enjoy a delicious and satisfying treat that is low in calories and high in protein. The chocolate coating and puffy filling melt in your mouth!
Built Bars are a staple in our cupboard. It’s a great feeling to fulfill my sweet tooth without ruining my diet! Love them all so much!
I've been trying to find a protein bar that didn't cost me 200-400 calories and built bar came through. I'm not a person who really struggles with protein bars so I was willing to eat pretty much any kind that gave me the protein without a high calorie count. Well turns out these things are amazing! They taste like candy. For real. They are soft and squishy and did I mention they taste like candy!? 15 calories of protein, wrapped in chocolate for 110 calories. My mom who hates all protein bars couldn't stop coming back for more of these on her recent visit. I love the clean, simple and short ingredient list. Basically, these are the best things ever.
Really enjoy these bars. The coconut is my favourite. My honey likes the mint
