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.
It’s so good I feel like I’m eating a candy bar! For breakfast! Lunch! Dinner!
Orange tastes like chocolate orange sticks. Surprisingly, I love the Chocolate Lemon.
Built bars are the best protein bars I’ve ever tried. My mom has never liked protein bars, but she is in love with the orange. Salted caramel is my fav, but this one is a close second. All the flavors are good tho. ❤️
Loved the first batch......but, the Orange didn’t seem to have the same flavor in this particular box......still dang good, though.
I got the trial box and the orange chocolate is by far my favorite flavor. It taste just like a candy bar. I love the texture of these bars and they keep me full for a long time.
First off - if you have a sweet tooth these bars are for you! They are like eating a chocolate covered flavored marshmallow ONLY BETTER because they are healthy. I’m not sure how they do it but they are delicious. All flavors are good the Orange crème is my favorite!
This bar is great! I can’t wait to try the other flavors!!
