A soy bar can be a delicious and convenient on-the-go meal for those of us that seem to be constantly on the run. Soy bars can be a good source of protein, one that’s high quality and meets all of our protein nutrition needs. This makes the right soy bar perfect for many of us trying to make good dietary choices in our busy lifestyles. However, not all are created equal. Let’s take a look……..
If you are in the grocery store looking at soy protein bars, be sure to read the label. You’ll almost certainly discover that the amount of protein and fiber in a typical store-bought bar contains less protein and less fiber than a Revival® option. In fact, one typical bar contains only 4 grams of soy protein and about 3 grams of fiber. Another typical soy bar contains about 9 – 12 grams of protein and 3 – 5 grams of fiber, depending on the variety you choose. A third commonly found soy protein bar is a bit more robust, containing 14 – 15 grams of soy protein, but only provides 2 grams of dietary fiber. Compared to Revival soy protein bars, these typical options simply don’t measure up. Every Revival bar contains 20 grams of soy protein (40% of your daily value), 5 grams of dietary fiber (20% of your daily needs), and 500 mg of calcium (50% of your daily value). That’s a lot of nutritional value wrapped in one delicious soy bar!
One thing you won’t find on most typical store-bought soy protein bars is the amount of soy isoflavones they contain. Instead, you will have to go to their website in hopes of finding that information, and in most cases, you won’t be able to find it; it’s just not there. One of the typical bars indicates that each of their bars contains 20 – 25 mg of soy isoflavones. That’s not bad, but you would have to eat about 6 of their soy protein bars to get the amount of soy isoflavones in one Revival soy bar. That’s a lot of bars!
It is clear that Revival soy bars offer greater nutritional benefits than many of the typical store-bought products. So, if you are looking to get the most nutritional ‘bang-for-the-buck,’ choose a Revival 6x uniquely blended bar for full soy benefits. They can make an excellent meal substitute (add a good multivitamin) if you are running late for work or they provide a great protein boost while hiking, biking, or doing any of your other favorite activities. It’s all in ‘the blend’. We were granted a patent for our unique blend in 2002.
