What makes your protein bar different than all the other protein bars on the market?
Most protein bars contain the “Big Four” common ingredients… hydrogenated oils, trans fats, sugar alcohols, and artificial sweeteners. PureFit Protein Bars are all natural and do not contain anything remotely resembling the Big Four! Additionally, PureFit Protein Bars are wheat and gluten-free, vegan, kosher, and will not melt in their packaging like other bars.
Are PF protein bars “better” than powerbar, cliff or other popular brand-name protein 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 protein 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.
Why won't Purefit Protein Bars melt in their packaging under normal circumstances?
Because unlike other protein 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 Protein Bars don’t.
