People consider protein bars healthy snack items. They are considered a better alternative to fries, chips, and other junk food. But is that true, or is it just a marketing gimmick? Many protein bars available in stores today are full of artificial flavors and sugar.
While they kill your hunger pangs and have some beneficial ingredients, they are often almost as bad as regular junk food. Dr. Jen's protein bars are a much better alternative because they are made from good-quality, proven ingredients. Here’s a look at why they are better:
1. The Best Ingredients
All Dr. Jen's protein bars are packed full of beneficial ingredients that help boost your metabolism and give you the energy needed to power through the day. These bars have all-natural ingredients that are responsibly sourced from trusted manufacturers. Some of the superfoods included in the bars are:
These are just some of the beneficial ingredients in the bars. There are no harmful artificial flavors or processed ingredients that may cause health problems from regular consumption. If you're looking for a nutritious and guilt-free snack, these bars are an excellent choice.
2. Grass-Fed Whey
Grass-fed whey is healthier and more nutritious than regular whey. It has a higher protein content and amino acid levels, which makes it an excellent ingredient for protein bars. Grass-fed whey is extracted from the milk produced by grass-fed cows. Experts in the industry agree that this whey is more suitable for regular consumption and offers a wide range of benefits.
Our protein bars have whey or pea protein, so you can choose something that suits your lifestyle. If you're vegan, consider pea protein or plant-based bars instead of regular bars.
3. Plant-Based Nutrition
Plant-based protein bars are also high in protein and full of natural ingredients. However, these bars are made from plant-based products like pea protein, almond butter, sunflower lecithin, coconut oil, etc. These ingredients don’t just replace the nutrients provided by animal-based products like butter or honey, but also add intense flavor. That's one of the reasons why Dr. Jen's vegan bars taste just as good as non-vegan products.
If you're lactose-intolerant or have other health conditions that restrict you from consuming certain animal-based ingredients, our vegan bars are the perfect alternative. They are healthier compared to other options available in stores because we don't use any artificial flavoring to enhance their taste.
4. No Added Sugar
Many protein bar manufacturers add artificial flavors and sugar to their bars to improve the taste. That adds flavor to the product but reduces its nutritional value. If you want to avoid artificial sugar or need a healthy snack, these bars aren’t a good snack option. Ingredients like dextrose, corn syrup, or maltose are nothing but added sugar. Dr. Jen's bars derive their flavor from naturally sweet ingredients, so you have something tasty without harmful additives.
Many people shy away from protein bars because they are worried about ingredients with gluten in them. Fortunately, superfoods like quinoa don't have gluten but still add some much-needed fiber to the bar. You won't need to worry about adverse reactions or triggering celiac disease if you eat our gluten-free bars. All ingredients are GMO-free and carefully chosen to ensure they are safe for consumption.
If you want protein bars with good ingredients sourced from reliable producers, try Dr. Jen's bars. They are carefully formulated to deliver the right nutrients and are packed full of flavor.
