How do I know what protein bars are good?

The secret to having a good protein bar is having good sourced primary ingredients. This means no excess sugar or fat, just nutritiously filled goodness that gives you the pick up that you need.  If there is more sugar in the bar than any other ingredient, this would typically be a big no-no as some protein bars offer more bad ingredients than good.  If the bars main source is either a protein or a fruit or vegetable and is packed full of fibre, this might be an indicator that it is a good protein bar.

What are protein bars good for?

Protein bars are good for keeping you fuller for longer, not to mention the vitamins or minerals that could help with any deficiencies you may have.

They are great for a pre-workout snack or a quick filler between meals, especially if you’re on the go and do not have the time to pre-make a substantial meal. It’s true that protein bars can vary enormously, so it’s good to get some education around the subject before you dive in when purchasing.

Protein bars are good in moderation, just like anything else. Protein bars have protein (well, duh), and a man should have 56 grams a day where a woman should have 46 grams.

With Grenades ‘Carb Killa’ selection bars, it is strong example of a substantial snack in between meals.  By supplementing a snack for a grenade bar, it will increase the amino acid availability to your muscles and keep your energy levels afloat.
