At first glance, the high-protein bar, made by a famous confectionary company, looks pretty good. It has way more protein and way less sugar than a typical chocolate bar. So, is this bar a challenge for the new The 1:1 Diet Peanut Crispy Bar?
Well, not really. Besides having even more protein and even less sugar, the Peanut Crispy meal replacement bar contains only concentrated sources of high-quality protein, from milk protein and soya protein. These are both what are known as “complete” proteins, which on their own can deliver high enough levels of all of the amino acids required by the body. The big brand-name bar uses milk (not concentrated milk protein) and wheat protein. Wheat is not a quality source of protein and doesn’t have enough of all of the essential amino acids our body needs.
So what about fat and fibre? When we look at the Peanut Crispy Bar, it contains about half the fat and three and a half times less saturated fat, which is the type of fat that can lead to unhealthy cholesterol and greater weight gain. Furthermore, when it comes to fibre, the Peanut Crispy Bar has over six times more. Higher levels of fibre can help keep you feeling full and nourishes the healthy bacteria in your gut! Also, when we look at calories, the protein bar has about the same amount as typical chocolate bars (about 250 calories), whilst the Peanut Crispy has just over 200!
Finally, of course, as with all of The 1:1 Diet Total Diet Replacements and Meal Replacement Products, the Peanut Crispy Bar is nutritionally complete, so you can be confident that it is giving your body all of the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients it requires!
