Protein Bars vs Regular Chocolate Bars

Are Protein bars superior to a normal Chocolate bar? There has been a lot said that Protein Bars are just glorified Chocolate Bars ๐Ÿซ ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Let's break down the macros and see if that is true:

55g Fulfil Protein Bar vs 55g Dairy Milk Bar

Calories โ€“ 208kcal v 293kcal

Protein โ€“ 20g v 4g

Fat โ€“ 9.3g v 17.1g

Carbohydrates โ€“ 8.2g v 31.8g

Fiber โ€“ 11.4g v 1.1g

Calorie wise there is not a huge difference between the two. If you are tracking Calories, strictly, the Protein bar looks to be the better option but not by much. Portion Size depending!

Protein - there is only one winner ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Carbs โ€“ A significant difference ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Fats โ€“ The chocolate bar is nearly double in fat ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Fiber โ€“ To be considered a high Fibre food a food must have 5g of Fibre per serving. With 11.4g of Fibre the Fulfil Bar wins out ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿป

Take home message โ€“ There is no reason to avoid Protein Bars & no reason to avoid Chocolate bars. Make your choice based on the Nutritional benefits, your goals & what you actually prefer. If you are looking for a high Protein snack, handy & easily consumed then a Protein Bar could work great for you to meet daily Nutritional needs & goals ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
