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.
- banana flavor
This was my first time purchasing anything from Built Bar. After a recommendation to try the banana chocolate creme bars, I'm hooked! The combination of the dark chocolate and subtle banana flavor is absolutely delicious. From the time they were delivered to my house, I have been thoroughly impressed with this product and company overall. I was skeptical to order, as I live in Arizona and any food, especially chocolate that is shipped in the summer months, usually arrives at my house in a soupy mess. My built bars came wrapped in an ice pack on a day that was over 100 degrees. No melting at all! I'm looking forward to trying other flavors. Highly recommend this product and company!!
Tie for the best flavor!
Bulit bar did this one right! It tastes like a banana dipped in chocolate. It's the prefect amount of chocolate and banana. I'm so glad bulit bar has it full time now. Thank you!!!! You won't be disappointed when buying this flavored bar.
These are my go to snack! If you love banana you will love these.
