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.
First time ordering. These are delicious
By far these are my absolute favorite of all the flavors. I love that I can throw one in my purse in case I need a snack throughout the day. My son asked me “mom, how many points for that candy bar?” Only being 3 sp on ww makes it a not-guilty pleasure!
These bars are awesome!! The size taste texture!!! If you like Russel stovers you will love these! Only 3 sp on WW..they fill me up and I have had no issue with binging on these..my absolute hands down new favorite food!!
These are amazing! I can't wait to try other flavors. I love the marshmallowy texture. (Yes, I just made that word up!!!) I have them as a snack with hot tea everyday and feel satisfied until lunch or dinner.
I am not a fan of protein bars, I don't care for the texture or aftertaste. But the Coconut are awesome! Sort of like a marshmallow Mounds bar. I usually cut them in 1/2 and save for later, all the chocolate goodness of a candy bar without the guilt!
I love these bars
