Whether you're a serious bodybuilder or someone that rarely works out, protein bars and other food snacks are a great way to give your body the nutrients that it needs. Some people prefer to drink protein shakes throughout the day, while others prefer bars and other snacks to eat.
It should be noted that protein bars do tend to have more protein, carbohydrates and fats in them then if you were to drink a protein shake. To curb the carbohydrate intake one thing that a lot of supplement companies will do is supplement sugars with sugar alcohols. It's recommended that sugar alcohols be used sparingly as they can cause digestion issues.
