Gatorade Prime Fuel Bar
Gatorade Prime Fuel Bars are energy bars with low amounts of protein and fats and higher amount of various carbohydrates, sugars included. It is not suitable as meal replacement bar for breakfast and daily snacks, but it comes very handy for energy boost during prolonged physical activity and athletic events.
Gatorade Prime Fuel Bars come in three flavors: Chocolate Chip, Honey Oat and Oatmeal Raisin. Nutritional content of all three flavors is very similar, and it is given in the following table:
|Flavor||Size||Protein||Total Carbs||Fibers||Sugars||Total Fats||Calories|
|Chocolate Chip||60g||5g||45g||2g||19g||3.5g||220 kcal|
|Honey Oat||60g||5g||45g||2g||17g||3.5g||220 kcal|
|Oatmeal Raisin||60g||5g||45g||2g||20g||3.5g||220 kcal|
Obviously, with only 5g of protein per single bar, these bars have one of the lowest amounts of protein per 100g of bars of all the bars we have reviewed. Also note that this protein comes mostly from grains like oats, wheat and rice - it is not animal protein and it is not the most quality protein for active athletes.
But, these bars are not designed for such purpose - they are energy bars, packed with various carbohydrates including simple carbs (sugars) and complex carbs, providing sustained energy release after consumption. This energy boost is very important for physically active people, regardless if they are hiking in the mountains or they participate in prolonged athletic events.
Gatorade Prime Fuel Bars are available in 12 bars boxes and as single bars and they come at very affordable price.
Taste is very good and it must be good with all that carbs in them :)
Bars are very satisfying and will keep one satiated for 1-3 hours, depending on the physical activity and the size of the person.
Some students even use them as energy boost during studying, but as a snack, it contains too much sugar and not much protein.
Gatorade Prime Fuel Bar - as its name suggests, it is FUEL (energy) bar, not 'classic' protein bar and it does its job very well. For more reviews and recommendations, check Gatorade Prime Fuel Bar Amazon link (link opens in the new window).
