Protein Bar Comparison
When I’m on the go, I like to have a stash of protein bars in my purse. Or, I pack them when I’m traveling so I always have something “healthy” when nothing else is available. However, protein bars are not all created equally. I was curious as to which ones are the healthiest, so I enlisted the help of my favorite app, Fooducate. I found that many of the most popular brands of protein bars are among the lowest-rated. They “earned” their low ratings by being highly processed and loaded with sugar. You can see the ratings of some of the most popular protein bar brands below, as well as the most highly-rated bars I could find (I did not see any A ratings).
Unfortunately, some of the highest-rated bars are not easy to find in stores. I hadn’t heard of a few of them. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t get them. The B+-rated Rise Protein Bars, Strong and Kind and Simply Protein Bars are available on Amazon.com with free shipping.
