Protein Bars are Crap!

Powerbars are worse than candy

Here’s Mike Roussell on why you should be very carefull when you buy protein bars. Not all are created equal. In fact some are just worthless (eg. Power bars, etc) and are no better than a candy bar.

Money Quote:

The first ingredient was a protein blend but the next three ingredients were corn syrup, brown rice syrup, and high fructose corn syrup. The bar had 51 grams of carbs, 25 of which came from sugar. Oh yeah it also contained partially hydrogenated soybean oil. Total crap.

Protein bars as bad as candy

The moral of the story is that reading labels is important. Just because a protein bar is called a “protein bar” doesn’t make it good for you. Odds are, it isn’t.
