Favorite Protein/power Bar?

17 posts in this topic

Hello all, I just joined.

I consider myself to be a fit and very health conscious little celiac lady :)

I've been a fan of NoGii bars to fuel my workouts, but am starting to get sort of sick of them...

Can anyone suggest another brand or type of gluten-free power snack I can try?

Thanks in advance!

I like Organic Food Bar, the protein one. It's not the BEST tasting one ever, but it's pretty good.

I love Larabars. Also most of the Tiger's Milk bars have no gluten ingredients. Last time I looked, the cruch flavor was the only one with gluten.

There's a great company called You Bar ( youbars.com ) in which you can order your own custom bars. This is AWESOME news for anyone with specific nutrition needs--you can choose type of protein, add fiber if you want, pick which fruits or sweeteners or, well, the possiblilities are endless! There's even an option to click on where they tell you if the bar you've chosen will be tasty or not. Very cool. You have to order a whole box, of course, and they're a little pricey (about $3/bar) but well worth it in my book.

Another I really like is the Simply Bar, available on (can't say the name, but it rhymes with cramazon.com ). These are high protein, low cal, easy on the stomach and very durable (they don't melt in your backpack). They are very mild tasting--not thrilling, but not objectionable tasting either. But if I want a more delicious bar, I go for a Larabar or a Kind Bar.

I love Lara Bars, but if you look on the label they don't have very much protein. :( Too bad, otherwise I'd eat them more.

There's a really good protien bar called Quest protien bar. Google it.

They use all natural ingredients. It has 20 grams of protien per bar...they use whey powder to get the protien. They are really chewy it's like caramel. They also have tons of fiber (78% of the fiber you need for the day) and they are gluten free. So try em. They are great!

I love Lara bars and Kind bars, both are all natural and have lots of protein, obviously varies with the type you choose. The LaraBar nut rolls are pretty good too, well worth a try! 😄

I agree all the bars mentioned in prior posts are very good.. But I have one that I think as many others is tops...... Its called "comfort bar" comes in three flavors the only drawback is you have to order via the mail unless you are in the western states...

Flavors are white chic cherry chip ( favorite) Italian choc orange, & choc almond.... 8 large bare for 21.20 lots of protein... Just amazing....

Not sure how much protein you want but Nugo Bars and Kind Bars very good.

beware: depending on your sensitivity, these bars probably contain gluten at some level http://www.nugonutrition.com/about/faq/

How does NuGo ensure our products are Gluten-Free?

The current proposed FDA standard for labeling a product gluten-free is testing to ensure it contains less than 20ppm of gluten. At NuGo, all bars that say gluten-free on the label have been batch tested to below 10ppm, a stronger standard than the FDA recommends. We manage allergens strictly during manufacturing, and all shared equipment is heat treated and cleaned before use with our gluten-free products in order for us to maintain the highest standard to ensure the products test below 10ppm.

Kind bars look good although i was a little confused by their answer from their FAQ:

5. Are KIND Healthy Snacks gluten-free?

Our products are tested for gluten and meet FDA’s proposed requirement of 20ppm (0.002%) of gluten. Our manufacturing plant is dedicated gluten free and has a strict allergen control program.

if your plant is dedicated gluten-free, would you even need to test? maybe they're just being very thorough.

a warning for the sensitive, the You bars are made in a facility with gluten: http://www.youbars.com/faqs

I have allergies; can you guarantee that what I order will not contain certain ingredients?

  • You may select the ingredients in your bar, however, your bar may contain traces of soy, wheat, eggs, milk, tree nuts & peanuts because our kitchen also processes items with those ingredients.

for Quest, i talked to an online customer service agent. i asked them if their bars were processed in a gluten-free facility and they said "our bars are gluten-free". when i reiterated my question, they said "we do not use gluten-containing ingredients in our bars". so Quest is ok i guess?

here is the info from the simply bar website: http://www.thesimplybar.com/faq

  • Is The Simply Bar certified gluten-free?

    • Yes. The Simply Bar is certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) and is manufactured in a gluten-free environment to prevent cross-contamination. We follow strict manufacturing practices and screen all our products using R5-Elisa. At ‹5ppm of gluten, our delicious protein packed bars are both safe for our celiac consumers, as well as an excellent snack option. View our gluten free certification.

    [*]Is The Simply Bar facility Gluten-Free?


    • Yes. The Simply Bar facility is maintained within a gluten-free environment. It should be noted that our facility also manufactures oats. Oats are naturally gluten-free. However, there is some concern whether the oats are grown in a field that at some point grew other gluten containing grains. Rest assured, our oats are tested for gluten before and after each usage.

    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone! 
    • Welcome to the club you never wanted to join! The good thing about this club is that you don't have to take any pills, get radiation or chemo, or stick yourself with a needle every day. Things could be much worse than this. Does your brother live close? If so he could go to your same savvy doc. That would be great! Also what about your mom?
    • Hi There! I am Aly and I have suffered seriously for about 4 years with an huge increase in symptoms. I just recently started a gluten free diet a few months ago and I am sure I make mistakes because I feel it when I do. Your symptoms are a lot like mine and after many blood tests and visits to Neurologist still no answers. They diagnosed with relapse/remission MS for all these years and now say its not that. It's Auto-immune but no answers. They never tested me for Celiac's but A friend suggested I try going gluten free. Here are my symptoms below.  See if you relate or if anyone can relate. Heat Sensitivity, Nerves jumping in face and eyes, sometimes pain and redness around the skin of eyes, kinda pinkish.... occasional trimmers coupled with loss of coordination and balance along with in and out slurred speech, a other varying waves of relapse include Extreme fatigue and a huge fog comes over me. I can't sit up or stand without getting dizzy and feel like passing out. For a few days of the relapse It's just bed rest. The other parts are off and on having to use cane. Up and down, symptoms change but eventually the waves grow dim and I go back to being normal for a while. Things seem to get exacerbated when I do to much like go more than 4 -5 hours without taking a break and resting, lifting anything to heavy...so it seems to be straining things lead me to relapse. I used to be go go go...on the run but life has changed and I find that although I am eating gluten free and being careful not to relapse, I entered another a month ago and I am having to get IV steroid infusion tomorrow to break the cycle of this one. Just when I think I am beginning to feel better and go do something I go right back down. Its seems Gabapentin, Baclofen, and LOTS of rest only get me where I need to be again. It's frustrating. I wanted to share as well so that we can combine forces to get some answers! I have decided to go to a Allergy Clinic of sorts to try and get tested for environmental and food allergies. I am sorry you do not have funding for care. See if there is local clinic that can at least run some preliminary blood work on you. I am not sure if you can see one now in your state being 17 but there is usually a 211 or a 311 line in most cities that will give you the list of places you can go for free or on sliding scale. See if they will run any allergy panels as well. I have found that we have to be proactive in our own care because sometimes there is no simple answer and the more we talk one another with the research sometimes we do on own, we find out more than 4 years of going to a doctor could ever tell you. Thanks for all your input here. I look forward to being a member and helping where I can! I will send updates as I get them. Blessings to you all! Aly
