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, which is known to significantly reduce, or potentially eliminate, blood sugar spikes in either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetics.
Natural Flavors, No Coloring
Built Bar only uses the highest quality natural flavors.
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.

there are a couple of flavors that I really like so being able to choose them in my box is perfect
Super fast shipping, fresh products, delicious!!!!
Great! I eat at least one bar every day! If you are looking for a delicious bar that has low impact on your sugar consumption, this is the bar for you! I use this as a supplement to my Weight Watchers program. At only 3 pts per bar for the cream filled ones as opposed to 12 pts for any candy bar, it is well worth it. I keep them in the fridge and they are seriously like a decadent dessert! If you haven't tried them yet, you should! It doesn't matter if you are on a diet, or just being mindful of what you put in your body, these bars will hit just the right spot any time you want a sweet treat or need a protein push.
Wonderful, I love these bars
Love these! Best protein bar ever!
