Review: PureFit Nurtition Bars

Category: , , / 12/16/2013
When it comes to protein bars, what you find in a typical grocery store often is little better than a candy bar. Many are coated with chocolate, and are not gluten-free or vegan. PureFit was created to offer a gluten-free, vegan, and healthier alternative to your usual energy bar.

Pros:
  • Won't melt
  • Very high in protein
  • Great taste
  • Many flavor options
  • Retail availability
Cons:
  • A little more expensive than conventional bars
Summary:
I tried several different flavor options, including the regular and crunch varieties. Both had a similar base texture, which was chewy and reminded me a bit of nougat. There were some scattered soy crisps throughout, which added a bit of texture to the bars. The "won't melt" claim is true - the bars aren't coated in chocolate and even the chocolate flavors have the cocoa mixed in. The flavors tended to be sweet, using beet syrup, brown rice syrup, and other sweeteners to maintain a low glycemic index. While non-GMO soy is used, I would still love to see organic ingredients for the price. Overall, the quality seemed to be good, and I was glad to see that the bars are a product of the USA, especially when some companies are outsourcing to China. These bars are balanced specifically for athletes, but they are also suitable for snacks. If you're looking for a high-protein energy bar that's both gluten-free and vegan, PureFit bars are a great soy-based option.
