Ingredients

Whey Protein (15 grams per bar)
Whey protein is a naturally complete protein, meaning that it contains all of the essential amino acids required in the daily diet. It has the ideal combination of amino acids to help improve body composition and enhance athletic performance. Whey protein is important for increasing muscle mass and muscle strength, and has been shown to help improve training efficiency in athletes. Whey protein is an excellent source of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs); these basic building blocks, including leucine, isoleucine and valine, are particularly conductive to muscle growth as they promote healthy protein synthesis in human muscle. BCAAs are important for athletes, because unlike the other essential amino acids, they are metabolized directly into muscle tissue and are the first ones used during periods of exercise and resistance training.

Fiber (12 grams per bar)

Fiber is that part of plant-based foods (vegetables, whole grains, etc.) that is indigestible by humans. Fiber has several properties of importance in human nutrition. These include prolonging the emptying of the stomach and contributing to satiety, which can assist in weight management. Slower stomach emptying may also help maintain stable blood sugar levels.

Most people have a much lower fiber intake than is recommended. When combined with the high-sugar, high fat diets common in many western cultures, this has the potential to contribute to negative health consequences. Generally, recommendations for adults for fiber intake are between 25 and 40 grams per day.

  • Like A Bit 'o Honey

Best Uses

  • In between meals

Comments about Choice® by Market America Choice Protein Bars:

I too think these bars are GREAT! Yes, they are tough and chewy but I do like the fact that it takes some time to consume them and consider that a plus. The taste is perfect, especially if you don't care for sweet stuff. The best attribute is that they are great when it is hot out. Most other bars melt or become gooey. These are road warriors and because they are compact they are great in my purse. The only downside, a bit higher in cost but totally worth it.

Pros

  • Great In Between Meals

Cons

  • V
  • Very chewy

Best Uses

  • In between meals

Comments about Choice® by Market America Choice Protein Bars:

Contrary to a lot of the comments, I really like these bars because they are so chewy and they don't have chocolate in them. I use them in between meals, sometimes as a meal replacement when I am too busy to actually eat lunch. They hold me over. Because they are so chewy it also takes a few minutes to actually get one down, unlike a lot of bars which are 3 or 4 bites and you're done. I usually keep a couple in my purse, and because there is no chocolate, they hold up ok in heat. I live in Florida so that is always an issue. They are pricey, but so are all the others in the Market America line.

does not come close

By Steve and LidyaS

from USA

Comments about Choice® by Market America Choice Protein Bars:

There is lots of competition for this product and they all beat this one. Even though ingredients are about the same this bar is almost impossible to chew. Hard as a rock, warm or cold, and taste like cardboard not PB. Would never recommend it to anyone.
