Melted 'Mass XXX' Bars

I just bought some Mass XXX bars and left a few of them in my car during school today.

Anyone know if the protein degrades at all in these bars at certain temperature? They were not in direct sunlight but they still completely melted.

I would think that the average molecule is so strongly bound and so stable that even enough heat to boil water (212 F) wouldn’t be enough to mess it up.

Pasteurization? Sure, but I doubt your hatchback Civic with windows rolled up and black interior could touch 500+ degrees.

psh.

Heat will not harm protien, especially in that form.

I might worry about it spoiling if it was like milk or beef or something, but just think about meat.

You freaking cook meat to denature it over fire.

throw those in the fridge and enjoy.

Thank you guys, I was hoping they’d be fine since they’re great for bulking at 510 calories per bar.

I also take offense to the hatchback part. I’d never buy a hatchback! :stuck_out_tongue:
