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 No Coloring
Built Bar only uses natural flavors and no artificial 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.
This is the second time I've purchase the bars, and in no way, does it feel like I'm eating "something that is good for me".....said with tongue in cheek. They are so delicious, it's like having a treat, which is something I always seem to be looking for. Sometimes I have one for breakfast, but more often than not, I use it as my evening snack.
I absolutely love the built bars! I’m so glad I found them. The texture is light and fluffy and they all taste so amazing!
They’re soooo good! My husband is also a huge fan. I love that they are unrestricted!
I received excellent service! Each of the flavors were delicious! I am extremely pleased with this company!
The mixed Built Bars arrived in a timely manner. You could tell they were extremely fresh, the outer chocolate coating is excellent! They all tasted wonderful; however, the inside “marshmallow” texture is not my favorite
love all the flavors! Wonderful low carb/low sugar protein bar for the IP alternative diet!
