Quest Nutrition recently introduced new flavors that are sweetened naturally with Stevia, Erythritol, & Lo Han Guo (all plant-based). This is GREAT news! Why? Because that makes them Paleo-Friendly!!
We all like convenience, on-the-go snacks, as well as healthy non-perishable foods to simply carry around in case of an emergency!
... Which is why I love these bars. These are the only protein bars I am safely willing to eat!
Whey Protein Isolate: "Generally recognized as the best protein source available, whey isolate has an incredible amino acid profile that delivers highly usable protein to your body that has been shown to increase muscle mass, aid in the loss of body fat, enhance immune function and much more."
Lo Han Guo: "A plant that's been used as a sweetener in China for over 1,000 years. It only takes a TINY amount as it's 300 times sweeter than sugar."
Stevia: "Stevia is an herb in the Chrysanthemum family which grows wild as a small shrub in many parts of the world. The glycosides in its leaves, account for its sweetness and it has been used as a sweetener in many countries for many years."
Erythritol: Made by fermenting whole plant pulp into a zero-carb, granulated sweetener that can be used much like sugar.
