What’s your favorite protein bar?
I’m referring to bars with 15+ grams protein (in my opinion, less than that is essentially a snack/energy bar with protein in it). I happen to love them ..maybe because I’ve been eating protein bars for YEARSSSS maybe as a way to tame my inner chocoholic I’m definitely NOT advocating that you start eating protein bars if you don’t have any need; just curious as to your favorite if you do. I prefer the ones with NO SUCRALOSE or MALTITOL but still has low sugar (preferably sweetened with natural stevia).
This Birthday Cake QuestBar does have Sucralose, an artificial sweetener. I tried it but didn’t really like it anyway. The double chocolate chunk flavor is one of the few Quest Bars without sucralose, so it’s my go-to!
Sucralose can spike your blood sugar & insulin (making you crave more sweets) if it’s the powder form – like Splenda. If it’s the liquid form, apparently it doesn’t .. I have no idea which form Quest uses but I have it in my head that my cravings are higher if I eat a flavor like Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
