What are Promax Original Bars?

Promax Original Protein Bars are the Perfect Pre- and Post-Workout Bar. They provide carbs and protein as fuel before your activity and proactively protect muscle tissue, as well as replenish glycogen and repair tissue post-activity. These bars feature a 2:1 Carb-to-Protein ratio for energy and recovery, as well as a balance of fast and slower release carbs to keep you fueled throughout your entire workout.

Who We Are.

At Promax we have a passion for GREAT TASTING PROTEIN BARS WITH SOLID NUTRITION. That means great taste and texture combined with a macronutrient balance that can fuel your workout and your multi-faceted life. We care about what goes into people’s mouths and bodies, so we are as careful about what we DON’T put into our bars as what we do.

Promax Bars

WHAT'S IN OUR BARS

Promax Original Protein Bars contain 20g of high quality protein per bar. This is the equivalentgrams of protein to eating 3 large eggs, two cups of low-fat milk and 4 oz. of canned tuna, about 40% of the recommended daily intake of protein (based on USFDA guidelines). All the proteins in Promax Bars are complete proteins, which contain all nine amino acids that are the building blocks of every structure in our body and have the highest Protein Digestibility-Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) of 1. The Promax protein blend incorporates fast (whey), intermediate (soy) and slow (casein) digesting proteins to extend the anabolic window to optimize lean body mass gains. Promax bars also combine a balanced mix of quick and slow release carbohydrates and dietary fat to help sustain energy levels, support appetite satisfaction and transport the proteins into the body’s cells.

WHAT'S NOT IN OUR BARS

  • NO GLUTEN. Promax Bars are certified Gluten-Free by the GFCO (Gluten-Free Certifying Organization). Strict standards have been set in the manufacturing facility to ensure no cross-contamination of surfaces, ingredients or finished products.
  • NO MALTITOL. Maltitol is a sugar alcohol that is used as a sugar substitute in many bars which can cause gastrointestinal discomfort. Additionally, some forms of maltitol have been shown to have a high glycemic index equivalent to honey and only one less calorie per gram than sugar.
  • NO GELATIN. Gelatin, typically made from the byproducts of the meat and leather industries, is an incomplete protein source. It lacks the amino acid, tryptophan, and contains only a small amount of methionine. Because of this, gelatin cannot be used as efficiently by your body as a complete protein such as whey or soy.

NO HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, TRANS FATS OR ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS, PRESERVATIVES, FLAVORS OR COLORS.

I absolutely love these bars. The thing about the taste is it doesnt taste bad it just isnt that strong. They more or less dont have a taste its kind of weird. The flavor isnt very potent but thats okay with me because it isnt overpowering or anything. I have braces right now and after getting them tightened these are SO easy to eat. My absolute favorite thing about these is how soft they are. They are the softest and easiest to eat protein bars I have ever had and I have tried dozens. I highly recommend these for people who dont really mind the lack of flavor. They go down really easy anyway so the flavor doesnt matter to me.

I have tried 3 different brands of protein bars and these are by far my favorite. The Chocolate Peanut Crunch tastes like a candy bar because they are chewy with a bit of crunch. I also like this flavor because it had the least amount of sugar. I didn't care for the Lemon Bar flavor. It was very grainy, tart but also sweet. Cookies 'N Cream was just okay but probably because I'm not a big fan of Oreos. I didn't care for the Nutty Butter Crunch. It was too grainy and lacked flavor.

The flavor and texture of the chocolate chip cookie dough was amazingly similar to that of real cookie dough. The protein content of these bars was good, the only major problem I had with them is that they contained too much sugar as the ratio 20:7:37 of protein:fat:carbs demonstrates (25g of of the 37 are sugar). If the bars dropped the sugar down to 5-10 and kept mostly the same flavor, I would likely buy again.

This is an amazing tasting protein bar! I absolutely love the flavors. I have tried both fudge brownie and cookies and cream and both are on point with their flavors. Cookies and cream is the perfect mix of cookies and cream and the fudge brownie tastes just like you'd expect from a fudge brownie. I highly recommend you try these bars! Great for snack, meals, pre or post workout!

Promax has a winner with their Lemon flavored Promax bars. The texture is just right and the flavor is very delicious. The price point is 12 bars for $15.79 which is a steal, much lower than most 12 box bars. The macros of the bar is where my only critique is. It does have 20 grams of protein and 6g of fat which is friendly. Although it has 39grams of carbs which isn't too bad, 28grams of sugar is pretty high. Because of it having that amount of sugar, for myself I would use the bar solely for preworkout and postworkout where fast digesting carbs are preferred. Otherwise, Promax did a great job with the Lemon bar and I would use again as well as try out other flavors to see if the flavors are as good as the lemon. I would recommend to a friend especially for a solid preworkout and postworkout bar full review here: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=171052861

Don't normally write bad review but I think these deserve one. I bought two boxes one Greek Yogurt and the other Nutty Butter Crisp. The Greek Yogurt one is the worst bar I have ever had both consistency wise and taste (I would compare it to sawdust). I would pick a cheap bulk Costco protein bar over these which says a lot. Also I was really hoping with what the macros are that they would be really tasty since they were quite a bit higher in Carbs and Fat but they did not deliver.

I've only tried Cookies n Cream, and it was okay. Kind of a lot of carbs and sugar compared to other bars. It was nice and thick, but you could really taste the whey protein. I like how inexpensive it is though. Will definitely try other flavours
