About Protein Bars
Most nutrition bars contain the “Big Four” common ingredients… hydrogenated oils, trans fats, sugar alcohols, and artificial sweeteners. PureFit Bars are all natural and do not contain anything remotely resembling the Big Four! Additionally, PureFit Bars are wheat and gluten-free, vegan, kosher, and will not melt in their packaging like other bars.
Better is a word we like to avoid. Beneficially different?… we like to think so (and our customers tend to agree)! Both Clif and PowerBar offer ½ the protein of a PureFit bar, and it is that protein that is essential to stabilizing blood sugar levels. Moreover, the higher protein choices now being offered by both companies contain hydrogenated oils (palm kernel oil / fractionated palm kernel oil) in their chocolate coating. Palm oil, although less harmful than partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, is far more conducive to heart disease than heart-protecting liquid oils such as olive, soy and canola. Furthermore, while some palm oil is produced in an environmentally sustainable manner, most comes from decidedly non-sustainable sources.
Because unlike other nutrition bar manufacturers, we will not use hydrogenated oils that are found in the chocolate covered coating of other’s bars. Hydrogenated oils break down and melt under normal heated conditions. PureFit Bars don’t.
You’ll find 20 grams of protein in a PureFit Bar, which in many cases is nearly three-times as much as most other so-called nutrition bars. Where does the fat in your bars come from?} The fat in PureFit Bars naturally occurs in the Almond Butter or Peanut Butter, and of course we do not add any fats, nor are their any artery-clogging trans fats in any of our products.
No, and you should never think of anyone’s nutrition bar as a true meal replacement. A meal is a meal. A nutrition bar is a nutrition bar.
Technically 18 months, but in all reality, PureFit Bars taste best if consumed within the first six months of production. Look for the “Best Buy” date, which is clearly marked on all PureFit Bar boxes and wrappers.
Indeed, PureFit Nutrition Bars are available in fine retail grocery, health food stores, coffee shops, and retail locations across the United States.

Protein bars shouldn't be overused. If you are an active person or someone who doesn't have much time to meal or snack prep, a protein bar could carry you throughout your day. However, it’ better not to at more than 1-2 a day.
The best time to eat your protein bar is post workout. After your workout it will deliver protein to your muscles and help with muscle recovery and growth. It is generally recommended that if you are going more than 4 hours between meals, a protein bar is a great way to get a 'protein top up'.
In general, you can eat protein bars without working out. Protein bars can be a perfect mid-day snack in between meals because they contain quality high-protein and plant fiber which can help you suppress appetite and lower hunger, even when you don’t work out.
It depends on the type of pasta, for spaghetti & fettuccine, the uncooked amount per person is 2 0z.
Take your pointer finger and thumb and make a circle, then shrink it small enough that it's roughly the size of a quarter. Then push the pasta in between your fingers, and whatever fits is a single serving. Now you can easily measure out pasta for one, two, or a whole crowd.
Boil a large saucepan of water, add a good drizzle of oil to the water – this will stop the pasta from sticking together. Add the pasta, stirring gently at first to separate the strands. Boil for 3–5 minutes until the pasta starts to float to the top. Drain immediately to ensure the pasta remains al dente.
