About Gluten Free Protein Bars

Protein Bars really are a convenient way to ensure that you meet your daily protein needs. Whether your goals is to lean up, gain muscle or simply to support recovery from exercise, a protein bar in the pocket ensures you won't be scouring the supermarkets or health food stores for something decent.


Let’s face it. Apart from canned tuna in springwater and tubs of low-fat cottage cheese, there’s little else in the aisles of the supermarket that can match up to the macronutrient balance of a protein bar.


Gluten contains a protein called gliadin, and is therefore actually quite high in protein, except for the essential amino acid lysine, which limits it bioavailability. Gluten is found in other grains too, such as spelt and rye. Unfortunately, many people react adversely to this protein, which means that our immune system is identifying this protein as a foreign molecule that needs to be destroyed, similar to a virus or harmful bacteria. This is the case with Coeliac disease, which is a severe form of gluten reactivity. If you suffer with Coeliac disease, or are sensitive to gluten, or are just trying to minimise gluten intake, gluten-free protein bars are certainly the way to go.


Given that gluten is high in protein, you may be wondering if the bar will be somewhat deficient in some way after gluten is removed. There is no need to worry here. Gluten free bars are just as good, if not better, than their gluten-containing counterparts. After all, wheat protein is not of a high biological value, and is not considered a complete protein source, due to its low lysine content, as previously mentioned. 

The bars within the Gluten-Free Protein Bars section contain all of the essential amino acids, including lysine, and heaps of non-essential amino acids as well. These amino acids are naturally occurring within the high quality protein sources. So if gluten is your foe, then gluten-free is the go. Check out our range of delicious gluten-free protein bars.
