I’m obsessed with only fueling my body with GOOD, clean nutrition, which is hard to find in a protein bar. Most protein bars are either A) loaded with sugar, B) have barely any protein, or C) taste horrible! Which is why I’m thrilled about Beachbody’s newest addition: BEACHBAR!
Let’s talk about why BEACHBAR is different and why at only $2/bar, its the responsible sweet treat you need!
How much protein do BEACHBARS have?
Calorie-for-calorie, BEACHBAR has a higher portion of protein per bar compared to other major brands out there!
We’re taking just 150 calories.
A whopping 10g of protein.
Speaking of calories, did you know there’s a difference between calories from protein, and calories from sources like sugar and fat? When it comes to the calories in BEACHBAR, over 25% of the calories come from protein!
What is the source of protein?
The protein in these bars come from a combination of whey crisps and pea protein.
There is also a plant-based option that’s totally vegan which uses only pea protein!
BEACHBAR contains absolutely no soy!
How much sugar is in one BEACHBAR?
This is one of my biggest complaints about most protein bars: they’re packed with sugar!
These are different, one bar contains just 5–6g of sugar!
I compared that with the amount of sugar in MY 2 favorite protein bars and was shocked to find that the ones I’ve been eating have more than DOUBLE the amount of sugar! One bar had 12g, the other had 23g of sugar! Yes, they also had more calories (almost double in one of them), but when does anyone ever eat only half of a protein bar?
Take a look at this comparison with some of the major protein bar brands:
The protein bars also have a low-glycemic index.
For those of you watching your blood sugar, the Glycemic Index measures the effect that food has on blood glucose levels. BEACHBAR has a low GI meaning the carbs release slowly helping your body avoid blood sugar spikes and dips!
What are the ingredients in Beachbody’s protein bars?
Just like they did with Shakeology, Beachbody kept all of the ingredients clean and simple!
