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.
Orange Chocolate is my weakness... when I saw this flavor I had to try them and I was not disappointed! I love them cold or out of the freezer too!
I love orange and chocolate, but this bar let me down. Within one bite I had that awful fake chemical orange taste in my mouth. The bar was good, but the taste needs to be improved
Honestly, I took one bite and had to google that these were in fact actually legit protein bars. I am a huge fan of fancy chocolates and chocolate covered marshmallow cremes--especially fruity stuff. I was actually in disbelief! How on earth are these so delicious?! Amazing!
Most protein bars have over 200 calories, taste meh, and I can never finish one. Not with Built Bar! So good. Never going back! <3
The chocolate orange is one of my favorite flavors and my mother in law is very picky and she LOVES these too!
Orange and chocolate are 2 flavors that I just love together
The orange is my favorite!
