Most people nowadays are doing everything to stay fit. Some people do workouts or yoga to improve their body shape, while other people do it because of health problems. Staying in shape requires the right amount of nutrients which means eating the right food is the right choice.
Food is the first thing people think of after doing some tiring work. Looking for food is not that hard, but the question is, do you eat the right food? Are these foods worth eating so that you can take good care of your health?
Having protein bars around is really convenient, especially when you’re in a hurry. Going somewhere to buy food can take too much of your time, especially when you need to fall in line to purchase food.
A protein bar is an answer to all of those hassles. Since it’s not that big, it won’t occupy too much space in your bag, and you can bring it anywhere. You won’t be having any problem where to eat it since it’s handy.
Our body needs proteins
Not to point out the obvious, but when choosing a protein bar, we of course want it to be full of protein. The majority of protein bars on the market today use Whey as their primary protein source, but being a by-product of the cheese industry, these of course, won’t be suitable for vegans.
Fortunately, there are plenty of plant based protein sources available and on their own or through a combination of just two or three, a full amino acid profile can be achieved, making them a protein power house of a snack. The most commonly used source in vegan bars is Soy isolate. This is due to the fact that Soy is a complete protein, meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids needed to build and repair muscle tissue.
Furthermore, Soy has been shown to have the added benefit of reducing your risk of cardiovascular disease. Pea protein is another favourite for those looking to pack on size with a vegan diet, due to it being just as effective as whey protein at increasing muscle thickness and strength. Other commonly used plant protein sources are Hemp, Brown rice and Wheat, all of which come with their own unique health benefits and help provide all the amino acids necessary to help you pack on muscle.
Advantages of vegan protein
1. Improved Digestion – Vegetables, legumes, grains, nuts and seeds are loaded with healthy fibres that naturally improve digestion and absorption, increase motility and reduce symptoms of gas and bloating.
2. Metabolism Booster – The combination of fibre and protein means it takes your body a while to digest vegan whole foods. The more your body works on metabolising the plant protein, the better your body becomes at burning extra fat.
3. Cardiovascular health – Plant-based diets tend to be lower in cholesterol and saturated fats and high in healthy plant sterols which can help to improve heart health and overall well-being.
4. Avoid added hormones & antibiotics – Many animal-based sources of protein can contain added hormones and antibiotics whereas plant-based sources of protein are packed with antioxidants, phytochemicals (compounds produced naturally by plants), vitamins and minerals which are essential for optimal health.
5. Complete proteins – Many people believe that animal sources of protein are the only “complete” proteins (i.e. they contain adequate levels of all 9 essential amino acids). This is simply not true. Soy, tempeh, edamame beans and golden peas are all complete sources of protein.
New products in our portfolio
That’s why we have decided to add two new exclusive products to our portfolio on a natural basis. The first is an extension of our most popular line - Protein Bar. We added two fantastic Vegans Protein bars - Cocoa with coconut and Vanilla with almonds. They contain the same amount of protein as the older experienced Brothers Protein Bars.
The second novelty from a completely different side is the Nuts Protein bar. Snack is an excellent mix of nuts prepared according to a 100% plant recipe and without palm oil. Suitable for vegans, naturally gluten-free, with carefully selected ingredients that give you energy. Dipped in tempting dark chocolate with up to 25% protein. Also available in two flavors - Chocolate and Coconut with almonds.
Both products are completely natural, as evidenced by the V-Label symbol from the European Vegetarians Unio. Overall, the bars were more than positively received by the world during testing, and we are very pleased to have been able to facilitate a healthy snack for another group of people.
