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 Flavors, No Coloring
Built Bar only uses natural flavors and no coloring.
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.
The bars are really good. I’ve tried all the flavors. Still trying to figure out which one is my favorite. Only 3 points per bar on WW!!🙂
Disclaimer: I have not yet tried the new and improved version but the original one on its own is delicious! These ones are much better cold, but very flavorful and decadent with the chocolate layer!
Who doesn't love the combination of chocolate and raspberry? This bar reminds me of the old time raspberry chocolate rings I used to get as a kid only way way better! I love this combination and it ranks as one of my top favorite flavors!
I love the raspberry and coconut flavors. I purchased the variety pack so I could try out each flavor... raspberry is awesome. I will definitely buy again. I purchased two boxes because they were sold out for a while.
I got a sample box and a full box of Salted Caramel. I've loved each one I have tried so far, with the exception of the Salted Caramel. Not sure what it is, but it just doesn't taste like salted caramel to me.
I do believe that this might be my favorite flavor. It's hard to decide because they are all so good, but I think the raspberry is my current favorite. I just ordered a box of the newest flavor, Strawberry, and I can't wait to get them!
