About this deal

Tastewise, they’ve got it bang on. I tried the Chocolate Brownie Crunch flavour and I’m pleased to report there’s no bitter protein aftertaste lingering in your mouth and it actually resembles a regular chocolate bar. The inside is gooey, almost like cookie dough and the outer is topped in coated cereal. Reveal more details about the main flavors of PhD Smart Bar in the sections below. PhD Smart Protein Key Features Although it is generally better to avoid unnecessarily processed ingredients, it’s likely that your protein bar will contain a processed form of protein – but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. “Bars with protein as the dominant macronutrient will always contain some kind of powder or processed protein source,” says functional medicine nutritionist Steve Grant. This is because whole food proteins contain more naturally occurring sugars. “Whole food sources of protein, such as nuts and dates, might provide 10g of protein, but then your bar would also contain 15g of sugar and 25g of carbs.” Protein Blend (30%) [Calcium Caseinate ( Milk), Bovine Collagen Hydrolysate, Whey Protein Concentrate ( Milk), Soya Protein Isolate], Couverture Milk Chocolate with Sweetener (23%) [Sweetener (Maltitols), Cocoa Butter, Whole Milk Powder, Cocoa Mass, Emulsifier ( Soya Lecithins), Natural Vanilla Flavouring], Caramel Layer (13%) [Sweetener (Maltitols), Humectant (Glycerol), Cocoa Butter, Soya Protein Isolate, Colour (Plain Caramel), Emulsifier (Lecithins), Condensed Milk (Whole Milk, Sugar), Flavouring, Salt], Sweetener (Maltitols), Humectant (Glycerol), Crispy Cocoa Soya Pieces (5%) (Soya Protein Isolate, Tapioca Starch, Cocoa Powder), Emulsifier (Lecithins), Sunflower Oil, Cocoa Butter, Water, Flavouring, Natural Flavouring.

Protein Blend (29%) [Calcium Caseinate ( Milk), Bovine Collagen Hydrolysate, Whey Protein Concentrate ( Milk), Soya Protein Isolate], Couverture Milk Chocolate with Sweetener (23%) [Sweetener (Maltitols), Cocoa Butter, Whole Milk Powder, Cocoa Mass, Emulsifier ( Soya Lecithins), Natural Vanilla Flavouring], Caramel Layer (13%) [Sweetener (Maltitols), Humectant (Glycerol), Cocoa Butter, Soya Protein Isolate, Colour (Plain Caramel), Emulsifier (Lecithins), Condensed Milk (Whole Milk, Sugar), Flavouring, Salt], Sweetener (Maltitols), Humectant (Glycerol), Crispy Soya Pieces (5%) ( Soya Protein Isolate, Tapioca Starch, Salt), Emulsifier (Lecithins), Sunflower Oil, Cocoa Butter, Water, Reduced Fat Cocoa Powder, Flavourings. Couverture Milk Chocolate contains: Cocoa solids 35% minimum, Milk solids 21% minimum. Although sweeteners have been used, the result is still very natural. In fact, I actually do think they could be made a little sweeter still. The best protein bars offer a convenient way to top up essential nutrients when on the move – but from the multitude of brands and flavours out there, how can you tell which taste great, are healthy enough to eat regularly and deliver the protein punch you need?

So PhD has been around for a while, and like most fitness-driven companies, has a roster of influencers and celebrities creating content and wearing PhD clothes and drinking and eating PhD products. Collagen is the second primary source and Soya protein is the third source of protein for it. ii) Low Sugar: Whichever bar you choose, it’s a myth that increasing your protein consumption (within your recommended energy intake) will cause you to gain weight. In fact, as nutritionist Jenna Hope explains, ensuring you eat enough protein can actually help you maintain a healthy weight: “Protein can be beneficial for balancing blood sugar levels and limiting energy crashes, as it helps you to feel fuller for longer,” she says. “Increasing your protein consumption within the realms of your required energy intake will not cause weight gain.” So, within reason, don’t stress too much about the calorie count. The Shredder Bar is the brainchild of social media influencer and sustainable fitness entrepreneur Grace Beverley and her team at SHREDDY. Their goal was to develop a vegan protein bar that didn’t taste chalky.Sports nutritionist Tom Clifford agrees: “Processed protein doesn’t necessarily mean low quality. Whey protein, which is derived from milk, is a very high quality source of protein even though it’s processed.” Plant-based protein sources commonly used in bars include soy, rice and pea protein. Do protein bars make you put on weight? Chocolate Brownie (an amazing condensed milk cocoa butter flavor) Dark Choc Raspberry (a perfect raspberry flavoured caramel layer) Mississippi Tough Mudder Pie (lovely malty flavour with a bobbly texture)

Clifford recommends 0.7g of protein per kg of body weight for the average adult, in line with guidance from the British Nutrition Foundation. While you should be aiming to get enough protein from whole food sources in your diet, protein supplements can help boost your intake if you’re working towards specific fitness goals. My only disappointment was that it left me wanting a little, while it tastes great and had great texture, the PhD Smart protein gave me the feeling that I needed more – I probably could have had two of them. The Final VerdictOne of the historical problems with protein-based bars and one of the stigmas attached to them is that they don’t taste great, they’re heavy and hard to chew.
