What type of protein is used in PROTABAR®?
PROTABAR® is proud to feature its own unique, high-quality egg white protein, which we produce ourselves through an innovative process developed over two years of rigorous R&D. Unlike many other brands that use pre-made, often smelly and low-quality egg white protein, our protein is freshly made from real egg whites.
Our groundbreaking method allows us to create a wholesome egg white protein that is not overly processed and doesn't have the off-putting smell commonly associated with egg-based proteins. This has enabled us to pack as much as 15g of protein into each PROTABAR® without compromising on taste or quality.
By controlling the production of our protein from start to finish, we ensure a cleaner, superior product that contributes to muscle growth, weight loss, and overall well-being. This makes PROTABAR® a standout choice for anyone serious about their health and nutrition.
What makes PROTABAR® unique?
Our bars are crafted through an innovative process that we developed over two years of extensive R&D. We make our own protein from fresh egg whites to ensure the highest quality. The result? A wholesome bar with 15g of protein, higher than any other brand has achieved.
How much Sugar is there in one PROTABAR®?
Each PROTABAR® contains 13g of sugar, which comes naturally from the three dates we use in each bar. We aim to be transparent and believe it's important for consumers to understand that we do not add any additional sugars or sweeteners.
While some other bars might advertise less than 1g or even zero sugar, they often use sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners like aspartame, sucralose, or saccharin to achieve these numbers. These sugar alternatives can cause digestive issues, leave a bitter aftertaste, and may not be suitable for all diets. Additionally, the long-term health impacts of some artificial sweeteners are still under research and debate.
Dates, in contrast, are a natural source of sugar and also provide essential nutrients and fiber. They make for a more wholesome alternative to artificial sweeteners and sugar alcohols. We're committed to using real, simple ingredients and believe that the natural sweetness from dates is a healthier choice.

While PROTABAR® is made with natural ingredients, we recommend consulting your healthcare provider before making any significant changes to your diet during pregnancy or while nursing.

Is PROTABAR® keto-friendly?
Based on the nutritional information, PROTABAR® contains 24g of total carbohydrates, which includes 13g of natural sugars from dates and 5g of dietary fiber. Given this carbohydrate content, PROTABAR® may not fit within the strict guidelines of a traditional ketogenic diet, which typically limits carbohydrate intake to about 20-50g of net carbs per day. However, every individual's nutritional needs and dietary goals are different, so you may still choose to incorporate PROTABAR® into a modified keto-friendly plan that allows for slightly higher carbohydrate intake. Always consult your healthcare provider or a registered dietitian for personalized dietary advice.
