Power Bar Protein Plus
POWERBAR PROTEIN PLUS BARS (PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE)
"PowerBar has fueled more world class athletes to championships and records than any other energy bar!"
Unfortunately, I have no way of measuring this.
"Produced by PowerBar Inc.'s state-of-the-art facility in Boise, Idaho, USA by people dedicated to providing the highest quality energy bars in the world."
I'm not able to interview workers to see if they are as dedicated as this claim would have you believe. However, PowerBar Protein Plus Bars utilize a variety of quality proteins (i.e. Whey Protein Isolate, Calcium Caseinate, Soy Protein Isolate). This proteins combined cover you for quick-digesting protein, as well as slow-digesting protein.
"Energy for Strength and Recovery
PowerBar® ProteinPlus energy bar is a high-quality, low fat protein bar developed by the athletes at PowerBar."
I wouldn't say it's particularly low fat, considering that it contains six grams of fat. However, this isn't particularly high either. Also, it appears to come from healthy fat sources.
"This high protein bar was developed according to the needs of world class athletes and others who want a convenient, great tasting source of high quality protein. As with other PowerBar products, PowerBar® ProteinPlus is a tool for athletes to use along with a balanced diet to help achieve optimum performance."
Key point to take from this paragraph is that this supplement, as with all supplements, are to be utilized as an addition to your diet. Supplements are not developed to replace a healthful diet. There is no supplement more powerful than a healthful diet.
"A PowerBar® ProteinPlus bar provides 24 grams of the highest quality protein from our proprietary TriSource blend, a blend of high quality whey, calcium caseinate and soy proteins, plus:
- 100% RDI of 10 vitamins
- 7 key minerals
- 5200mg branch chain amino acids
- 4600mg l-glutamine
PowerBar® ProteinPlus is the ideal energy bar to help build strength and speed recovery after intense activity. And a PowerBar® ProteinPlus bar tastes great with five terrific flavors to choose from."
The downside to this bar is that it contains a fairly significant amount of sugar (19 grams). However, as the claim indicates, this bar is meant for "recovery after intense activity." This is when large amount of sugars are necessary to replace lost glycogen stores. Also, www.bodybuilding.com currently offers 3 flavours (Cookies and Cream, Peanut Butter Chocolate and Vanilla Yogurt).
I wasn't really impressed with PowerBar Protein Plus Bars claim. However, I felt it wasn't too bad. Therefore, for the claim, I award PowerBar Protein Plus Bars a 7/10.
I sampled the Peanut Butter Chocolate flavour of PowerBar Protein Plus Bars. I found that it had a tasty chocolate coating. However, it also contained a somewhat dry protein taste and a bit of a dissatisfying aftertaste. Overall, the taste wasn't too bad though. Therefore, for taste, I award PowerBar Protein Plus Bars Peanut Butter Chocolate flavour a 7/10.
I found that PowerBar Protein Plus Bars had a very chewy texture that I felt was a bit much. Therefore, for texture, I award PowerBar Protein Plus Bars a 5/10.
The claim was fairly on point. Also, the taste was easily sufficient to meet my taste needs. However, the texture was not quite to my liking. Therefore, for an overall review, I award PowerBar Protein Plus Bars Peanut Butter Chocolate flavour a 6.5/10.
