QUEST HERO BAR

Muscle & Performance - - Nutrition & Health -

What It Is: The Hero is a high-pro­tein (15 grams), high-fiber (11 grams), low-net-carb (4 grams) treat. The lat­ter char­ac­ter­is­tic is due to the pres­ence of al­lu­lose — a unique type of sugar found nat­u­rally in some fruits with very dif­fer­ent prop­er­ties than reg­u­lar sugar. In short, it passes through the body with­out be­ing me­tab­o­lized and has vir­tu­ally zero calo­ries. The bar also con­tains a blend of mus­cle-build­ing milk pro­tein and whey pro­tein iso­lates, listed as the first in­gre­di­ents on its la­bel, no less. Great taste, high pro­tein, min­i­mal carbs to be stored as fat — quite Hero-ic, re­ally. What It Tastes Like: The al­lu­lose is sweeter than its nu­tri­ent profile would sug­gest, so the bar gets an A grade on taste, whether you’re eat­ing the vanilla caramel, choco­late caramel pe­can or blue­berry cob­bler fla­vor. What’s In It: NTM to OMM calo­riesi NR to NT grams pro­teini OT to OV grams to­tal carbs (4 grams net carbs), 7 to 11 grams fat, 10 to 11 grams fiber (de­pend­ing on the fla­vor) Where To Get It: qhe Vi­ta­min Shoppe and vi­ta­min­shoppe.com; $20.99 for a box of 10 bars.
