7 Top Ingredients to Look for in a Protein Bar ...


It can be deceiving if you’re not sure about what ingredients for a protein bar to look for. Choosing the least refined option is best, but sometimes, being on the go can cause us to make some less than stellar choices. Protein bars, though refined, can be an easy grab and go item to lower your blood sugar and ward off hunger, when healthier options aren’t available. Here’s what ingredients for a protein bar you should look for, or that you can even use at home to make your own.

1. Almonds


Almonds are a great source of protein, and are always an ingredient for a protein bar that I look for when purchasing one, or buying my own. Almonds contain 7 grams of protein in just one quarter cup. They also have essential vitamins and minerals that nourish the brain and metabolism, along with your heart. Look for raw protein bars if you can find them, like Larabars or Rise bars, but if you can’t find a raw variety, any bar that has almonds is a good choice. If you’re making your own, just soak almonds overnight and add your own to your mix in the food processor.
