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.
I have been looking for a granola or snack bar for quite some time that was low in calories but delicious in taste. These do not disappoint. Best tasting and only 3 points on WW ! Highly recommend the orange, lime and lemon!
The first bite of the lemon Built Bar was okay, but after that it was way too tart or something...it did a weird things to my tongue. My box said it had a raspberry bar in it but this lemon one was in it instead, I was very disappointed!
The lemon flavor in this bar hits you right at the beginning, but dies off relatively quickly which was a little disappointing. I think it could use a little more of the lemon flavor. The nougat style center is a little bit gummier in this bar vs. some of their other bar flavors. The lemon flavor immediately reminded me of the yellow starburst, which I was a fan of!
It’s like healthy dessert! The mix of citrus and chocolate is delicious.
These bars are very good and I love that they are only 3 WW points! I'm already considering placing another order.
The flavor and texture are amazing. I have to stop myself from eating too many.
