Protein supplementation has become an integral part of gym culture. A concern for unhealthy ingredients being used in protein bars have led to the creation of healthier alternatives and leading the charge is Quest Nutrition’s Quest Bar.
Why Quest Bars
Quest Bars were created from a simple idea: food should taste as good as it is good for you with zero compromises. Quest Nutrition set out to deliver something that no one had done before and believed that with enough hard work and innovation food could be delicious and good for you. People eat for enjoyment rather than sustenance. That’s why Quest is driven to engineer foods that don’t compromise on taste or nutrition.
The Ingredient Problem
Here’s the ingredients list of a popular protein bar:
Whey Protein Isolate, Glycerine, Fractionated Palm & Palm Kernel Oil, Sugar, Corn Syrup, Calcium Caseinate, Milk Protein Concentrate, Maltitol Syrup, Water, Maltitol, Soy Protein Isolate, Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolate, Cocoa (Processed with Alkali), Partially Hydrolyzed Milk Protein Isolate, Acid Casein, Invert Evaporated Cane Juice, Sorbitol. Less than 2% of the Following: Cocoa, Natural & Artificial Flavors, Fructooligosaccharides, Egg White, Calcium Carbonate, Soy Lecithin, Titanium Dioxide (Added for Color), Salt, Vitamin & Mineral Blend (Magnesium Oxide, Ferric Orthophosphate, Sodium Ascorbate, dl-Alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate, Ascorbic Acid, Niacinamide, Zinc Oxide, Copper Gluconate, Calcium Pantothenate, Manganese Sulfate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin, Beta-Carotene, Thiamin Mononitrate, Vitamin A Palmitate, Chromium Chloride, Folic Acid, Biotin, Potassium Iodide, Sodium Molybdate, Sodium Selenite, Phytonadione, Vitamin B12), Mono- & Diglycerides, Pectin, Potassium Lactate, Sucralose, Soy Oil, Tartaric Acid, Tocopherols (Added to Protect Flavor), and Maltodextrin.
See the problem? Too many unknowns. Also too many compromises, like sugar and palm oil. Here’s the ingredients list from a Quest Bar:
Quest Bar (Berry Bliss):
Protein Blend (Milk Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Isolate), Soluble Corn Fiber (Prebiotic Fiber), Almonds, Water, Natural Flavors, Erythritol, Palm Oil, Dried Blueberries, Dried Strawberries, Sea Salt, Calcium Carbonate, Sucralose, Malic Acid, Citric Acid, Steviol Glycosides (Stevia)
Simple. Uncomplicated. Healthy ingredients and perhaps most importantly, according to thousands of fans around the world, delicious! The result of hardwork and unwavering dedication to the right ideals.
A New Attitude Towards Ingredients
Sugar, for instance, doesn’t even exist at a Quest Bar facility. The only sugar in our bars comes from things like the nuts and freeze-dried fruit. Every sweet, mouthwatering bite of a Quest Bar is the result of painstaking trial and error to discover the most insanely delicious ingredients that promote a clean lifestyle.
Even the inclusions that are put in the Quest Bars are made in house. The chocolate crumbles in Cookies & Cream and the white chocolate chunks in the White Chocolate Raspberry… those are made from scratch. It’s the only way to get the perfect taste and nutritional profile you come to expect from Quest.
