I guess the same could be said for fat, carbs etc... Maybe in a typical bar/snack of this kind there’s not as much protein as these, hence advertising it on the packet? Agreed it isn’t a full on protein bar, but it proportionately has more protein than let’s say biscuits which also have plenty of sugar.
protein buzzword strikes again 13g carbs 4.3g sugar 7.1g fat 4.5g fibre 4.4g protein almost same amount of sugar as protein. why isnt it sugar mentioned in the name then?
Not good if you’re cutting!
Thanks. You just saved me a purchase! (y)
139 cal, 5g of protein is not a good ratio, i dont think foods like these should call them 'protein snacks' (think i used it better that the guy with the "snacks" haha) To get a good amount of protein you would need to eat a chunk of these and your calories and sugar would be too high. So then if you consider they are not really a good way of consuming protein... your left with just a snack that dint taste as good as other naughty food that would be a better treat for you calories

not really - it just uses a protein buzzword to seem diet-friendly and trendy I would say it depends on the diet so if you are following something just by macros and not food restrictive diet then you could possibly adjust it not to exceed the set macros however: per 100g you get almost same amount of sugar as protein 14g vs 15g 24g fat 44g carbs no thanks
Please advise. Is this good for people dieting? Fat content is bit high?
They'll have high R&D costs as well as them investing heavily in what was a very small market (healthy snacks) and a limited shelf life. Honestly they aren't that expensive compared to similar snacks and I can't think of another company with anywhere close to the range. I don't buy them at RRP, but on offers like this they are a nice high-ish end snack.
Those are some really expensive snacks even with the discount. Sorry but cold. They must make tons of profit.
