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.

Love the Banana Nut Bread 18 Bar Box!
I love this flavor. It really makes me think of banana bread. My husband thinks this is the best flavor, too. Some of the flavors are very similar, but this one is something special and different. Hope it continues to be produced for a very long time. I've ordered probably 5 boxes of this flavor.
Fabulous. Grand. My little peace of heaven in this quarantine. These bars are keeping me from all the snacks snacks in the house. My 2 year old now reaches to the top of the fridge wanting a built bar. Treat yourself people!
Was hesitant to try banana nut bread flavor. Banana has a tendency to be an overbearing flavor but that is not the case this time.
Just ordered five more boxes of Built Bars. This time I got one of the Banana Bread ones. Amazing! Tastes great!
