Labrada Lean Body Gold Bars
Labrada Lean Body Bars are ready to eat protein bars suitable for daily snacks and/or quick breakfast. They taste great and are relatively low in sugar and saturated fats.
Protein come from different sources: Whey Protein Isolate, Soy Protein Isolate, Milk Protein Concentrate, Whey Protein Concentrate and Wheat Protein Isolate. As one can see, protein sources are relatively fast (not all), but in combination with other ingredients, they feed the body for maybe 3-4 hours.
This protein bar comes in several flavors: Caramel Peanut, Peanut Butter & Jelly and S'mores and they all taste great - real delicacy like some candy bar :)
Bars can be purchased as single bars or in 12 bars packages - of course, larger packages are cheaper per bar.
Each bar has around 85g and they contain:
- 25g of protein
- 33g of carbohydrates, of which there are 2g of fibers and 5g of sugar
- 14g of fats, of which there are 6g of saturated fats
Cholesterol is relatively low (30mg per bar), but sodium could be lower (490mg per bar).
Recommendation: when compared with regular healthy meals, Labrada Lean Body Bars are expensive candy bars. I really like Labrada products, but they are just that - candy bars.
On the other hand, I use powdered MRPs a lot and it is not always possible for me to carry around shakers and bottled water and mix them when I am in hurry.
That is where these bars really do come handy - one might say that they contain too much sugar, too much saturated fats, that their protein sources could be better etc, but if you are in the hurry, if you are traveling or anything similar, just take one of these and enjoy it - and they are really joy to eat :)
They will feed your body for several hours, even if you are a bigger guy - 360 kcal is nice amount of calories. IMHO, they are one of the best tasting protein bars around.
