Protein Bar Comparison Chart

As we all know, there is plenty of choice in the bar world. Finding the bar that fits your needs and desires can be difficult, to say the least!

We recommend looking for a bar that has more protein than sugar, is lightly and naturally sweetened, and one that does not contain a lot of strange unrecognizable ingredients. We also recommend avoiding things like Erythritol or Sugar Alcohols, Stevia and Sucralose. These are the ingredients that tend to leave you with a bad taste in your mouth or an uncomfortable feeling in your stomach!

Think Natural, High Protein, Low Sugar!

After a long day in the office, knowing that we have a tough night of training ahead of us, we need to grab a quick, convenient and healthy snack to provide us with the fuel that we need to perform at our best. Time after time, I would stop on my way to the gym to "grab something to eat" and time after time, I was disappointed in the options available. It was this disappointment that lead us to develop 'The Original' Muscle Up Bar; a bar that wouldn't disappoint! High Protein, Low Sugar, and delicious!
