A Protein bar is a bar-shaped snack food usually marketed to athletes or other physically active people who wish to maintain their calorific needs in light of their strenuous physical activity. Some brands of energy bars are also sold as dietary supplements.
As the name indicates, they are mainly a source of food energy, primarily carbohydrates. Some bars contain a source of protein (often whey, casein, or soy), as well as a selection of added vitamins and minerals. The flavours added to the ingredients often make them resemble baked goods, such as cookies or muffins, to make them more appealing.
The packaging of a typical bar will provide an extended food label in order to assist the consumer in maintaining a dietary regimen. Major brands are available in our store. It is also possible to make one's own energy bars, following a recipe or using a baking mix.
