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.
This was a recommendation from my WW workshop and it truly is the best bar ever! I can not decide which favor I like the most so I again went with the assortment box on my reorder.
I was skeptical of all the glowing reviews until I tried the bars. The inside is light and comparable to the texture of a marshmallow and the outside is delicious chocolate. My personal favourites right now are raspberry and mint, but you cannot go wrong with any of the flavours. They are filling and do not leave that weird milky aftertaste you get from some whey based bars. This essentially tastes like you’re eating a chocolate bar.
I’m so grateful I found these bars. My whole family likes them. Like no other protein bars we have tried. They taste like dessert but leave you feeling full.just ordered 2 more boxes.
I love Built Bar! Every flavour is better than the one before. Freeze them and they are amazing ! I am a loyal Built Bar customer from now on.. yum
Love the built bars. Sadly this took almost a month to be delivered to my sister in law si she could try them.
I recently received my built bars in the mail and I am so amazed at how delicious they are. Over the years I have tried several other brands of protein bars but none compare to the Built Bars. The real chocolate taste, low calories and high protein make them superior to any other brand on the market. So far the
