Labrada Cookie Roll Bars
Labrada Cookie Roll Bars are very tasty, high protein food/energy bars. They can be eaten when desired, but when served hot after 10-15 seconds in microwave, they are more candy-like delicacy than healthy, high protein meal.
Protein sources are: soy protein isolate, whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate and wheat protein isolate. Such protein sources ensures complete protein that doesn't get digested within 60 minutes after eating the bar. On the other hand, I would really prefer bar with milk protein isolate and egg protein isolate as main protein sources, but such bars would cost more.
Labrada Cookie Roll Bars come in two flavors: Cinnamon Bun and Iced Brownie. Macronutrient content is very similar and is given in the following table:
|Flavor||Protein||Total Carbs||Fiber||Sugar||Total Fats||Saturated Fats|
Both flavors contain no trans fats and around 300kcal per 80g bar.
As one can see, these bars don't lack carbohydrates and are not sugar deficient, to say the least. However, they don't contain sugar alcohols and other similar ingredients that improve taste, but are not counted as carbs/sugars, although their nutritive value is, at least, questionable.
This is one of the reasons we like Labrada supplements and products - these bars must be one of the tastiest bars around and for that, they need sugar - plain and simple - and Labrada wrote what they actually have inside.
Labrada Cookie Roll Bars are great for breakfasts and daily snacks. They can be even considered as last solid meal before workout and as first solid meal after workout - some people use them instead of Post Workout Meal (PWM) shake, but ordinary whey with some fast carbs is much better. If you have ran out of whey, feel free to take this bar after workout - better something, than nothing. And these bars are something - each contain 25g of protein, around 33-35g of carbs and 8-9g of fats - don't underestimate 300kcal bars :)
If you like outdoor activities, be sure to take few of these with you - they can be eaten on the go, just be sure to drink plenty of water, especially during warm days.
Labrada Cookie Roll Bars - highly recommended, especially for ectomorphs. Mesomorphs and especially endomorphs should be aware of carbs - if they fit your daily macros, feel free to enjoy these protein bars.
Price - price is acceptable, especially in 12 bars packages. If you want just to try them, they can be found as single bars, too.
