i’ve taken a closer look at the ingredients in promax bars and they seem to be a pretty good choice overall, if you don’t mind the high gi carbs and the fact that you have to eat 2 to get 40g of protein. there are a few ingredients that are less healthy than whole food choices, but probably nothing that’s really going to have an effect on your health or physique.
as for trioplex bars: pretty solid all around except for the fact that one of the principal protein sources is soy isolate. this is a little better than soy concentrate, but anyone on this forum will tell you to avoid soy if you can. i wouldn’t worry about the amount in one bar, but eating too much soy raises estrogen levels.
i would try checking out promax lean protein bars, AST vyo-pro bars and cytosport muscle milk bars. all are low in sugar, relatively low in carbs and saturated fat, and don’t contain any poor protein sources such as collagen, gelatin, or soy.
