Chief protein bars provide a high-protein source to support muscle growth and repair, and a quick burst of energy for your active lifestyle. They are ideal pre or post workout, or as a snack between meals. A shelf-stable product, the bar is made by mixing minced topside and brisket sourced from pioneer organic brand OBE with dried fruit and spices before being extruded, dried and then packaged in oxygen free packaging to enable a 10-month shelf life without the need for preservatives.
Which company protein bar is best?
The primary nutritional benefit of protein bars is their high-protein content. A standard protein bar will typically contain between 10 and 30 grams of protein, which can significantly contribute to meeting daily recommended intakes (DRIs).
Protein bars also offer an easy way to get in more fibre, a nutrient that is known to promote satiety. They are also often lower in calories and fat than most other convenience snacks. However, they should not replace whole foods, as these will provide a wide variety of other important nutrients.
Ideally, choose a bar with a balanced ratio of protein to carbohydrates. Carbohydrates will give you immediate energy, but too much can cause a sugar crash and fatigue. Check the total carbohydrate and added sugar content of your chosen protein bar. Opt for bars that are lower in added sugars and sweetened with natural or low glycemic index sugars. Also, look at the fat content of your protein bar and try to avoid those that are high in saturated and trans fats.
