Are quest protein bars good for you?
Quest Nutrition is one of the best on the market - most other protein bars are considered glorified candy bars by nutritional experts because they're filled with loads of artificial fillers, sugar and junk ingredients.
Most supplementary sports food brands use gelatin as a filling ingredient, to give the illusion of a higher protein count - but unfortunately, gelatin has very little use or benefit to the body.
Quest Nutrition Protein Bars are unique because they have a higher degree of bioavailable protein (it's easily absorbed by the intestines and can be used efficiently by the bodies cells and tissues) which means you'll not only get a decent a protein source from these great-tasting bars, but you'll also get more biological benefits from Quest Nutrition Protein Bars compared to most others on the market.
Quest Nutrition constantly searches for new, cutting-edge ingredients which offer the most metabolic advantage (advantage to the bodies functions, specifically relating to the breakdown of food for energy). So you can rest assured, Quest Nutrition is constantly updating their products and formulas with the latest scientific research, to give you a protein blend with the best end-result as possible.
All products developed by Quest Nutrition are made with low-calorie sweeteners and natural flavours that won't spike your blood sugar levels - which means less lethargy after eating and prolonged fullness, for appetite control.
Quest Nutrition also uses FDA (Food and Drug Association) approved dietary fibre in each bar. Dietary fibre has a whole range of benefits for the digestive system, especially if you suffer from IBS or other related issues.
Are Quest bars okay for a low-carb diet?
Quest Nutrition Protein Bars are made with very little sugar and carbs and are incredibly high in protein - which makes them perfect for low-carb diets such as the Atkins diet.
They're also filled with prebiotic fibre which is perfect for a low-carb diet. Majority of your daily intake of fibre comes from carbohydrates, therefore reducing your intake of carbs can impact your health negatively (restricting the body of certain nutrients can have adverse side effects such as reduced energy levels and constipation).
Quest Nutrition Protein Bars don't quite meet the strict qualifications of a ketogenic diet or eliminating carbs, as some Quest Nutrition Bars contain ingredients that aren't considered keto-friendly, such as peanuts, oats, dried berries and/or honey.
Quest Nutrition started in 2010 as a passion-project. The husband and wife team worked together to make their protein bars by hand in their kitchen, for friends and family to enjoy. After success at local trade shows, the couple launched the brand in 2013 and became a top-seller in speciality retailers.
In 2015, Quest Nutrition went global, launching in major supermarkets and grocery stores, with a whole range of products - becoming an industry leader in the 'nutritious snacking' movement.
Their goal is to support you in your Quest. Quest Nutrition is committed to creating convenient, innovative, great-tasting snacks and meal replacements to assist you on your fitness journey.
