We know that access to nutritional information is pretty important to many of you—so we have aimed to provide all the details you need. Below are some of the common questions we get—and if you are looking for something else, just send us a note and we will do our best to get an answer for you.
How do you calculate your nutrition facts?
Nutrition information is calculated using this nifty calculator — click for detailed stats, ingredients, and to plan your next meal.
Do you have items that are gluten-free/vegan/vegetarian?
Yes, yes, and yes. In fact, we have an entire section on our website devoted to Alternative Diets. If you have a question about a specific ingredient within our recipes, email us through our CONTACT US page.
Which milk should I choose in my blended drink or bowl?
Your choice of milk should be based on your dietary preference. Each has its own unique taste, so blended drinks and bowls may vary slightly in taste. Customers have found that 2% and Almond Milk make for the creamiest, best tasting drinks. We always recommend Almond Milk as it is the lowest calorie milk, – half the calories of skim milk – is sugar free, and tastes great.
If I customize my order, how does that change the nutrition facts?
Consult our custom nutrition calculator for a full list of ingredients and nutritonal information.
Where does the sugar in your menu items come from?
The sugar found in Protein Bar’s items comes from the naturally-occurring sugar in fresh fruit, vegetables, and milk, and is easily converted to energy by the body. This is the same type of sugar you get when biting into an apple. Unlike many other healthy food concepts, our items contain no refined sugars, which the body converts to fat if it is not burned through exercise.
Are your ingredients organic?
Though we use many ingredients that are in fact organic, we will vary our suppliers occasionally to ensure quality. For this reason, we do not feel comfortable placing “organic” next to any specific menu item ingredient unless we are absolutely certain we have found the highest quality organic product, such as with our quinoa, agave nectar or beef. We do, however, use all-natural proteins, whole grains, milks, and produce in all menu items.
