The easy-to-digest plant-based protein (from brown rice, buckwheat, peanut butter, and chia) conveniently boosts protein intake without needing to consume animal products, soy, dairy, or gluten.
In addition to protein, the Greens Protein Bar is packed with green superfoods, including wheat and barley grass juice, spirulina, and broccoli sprouts. It also contains dates, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, and is an excellent source of fibre – providing 9 g of fibre, or 36% of the daily recommended intake (DRI) – and a good source of iron ( 15% of the DRI).
A healthier alternative to bars loaded with artificial flavours and calories, the naturally sweetened formula helps keep you satisfied and energized between meals. Much of the protein comes from plant-based organic brown rice. Research has shown that brown rice protein offers benefits virtually identical to the dairy-based whey protein popular with bodybuilders. The rice protein is balanced by a rich, creamy peanut butter that also contributes to the great flavour. And, of course, we couldn’t skip chocolate. But this is not just any chocolate; it’s antioxidant-rich, dark chocolate. What you won’t find in their green protein bars is high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) or other unhealthy sugars. Their bar is sweetened with NuVous (containing inulin, stevia, orange flavour and lycii berry extract).
