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.
These are some of the best protein bars I've ever had!! The chocolate mousse is just like a three musketeers bar and the coconut is just like a mound bar! Will definitely order again!
These protein bars are be far the best tasting I have tried. I love the marshmallowy texture inside and the real dark chocolate coating. My favs so far is the coconut and raspberry.
These bars are all super tasty. Low in calories and my husband and I have not found any bar even close to these. Too bad they are in USA funds and we can’t buy in Canada. Still even with the exchange they are 100 percent worth keeping on hand.
Oh my goodness! These are so delicious. I love the not-so-dense insides that make it refreshing and filling. Well done, Built Bar! I will certainly be ordering more!!!
I enjoyed most of the flavours - orange and lemon were my least favourite. The texture was so different from most protein bars. Will definitely buy again.
Built Bars are so good and delicious. Hands down the best protien bar I have ever had. Taste like a candy bar.
