Protein bars have become a go to snack for gym-goers and sports lovers.

Whilst the science behind protein bars is clear, picking one is more difficult. There are so many bars from different brands which all have a variety of flavours, protein content and ingredients. So Predator Nutrition has told us about its top 10 protein bars to help give you a bit more information.

Number 1 – Grenade Carb Killa Protein Bar (Best Protein Bar Overall) 

The Grenade’s Carb Killa protein bar is known for the chocolatey flavour. They are low in sugar and have 214 calories as well as 23g of protein so the perfect choice to keep you full and give you a boost of energy. 

2. Mars Protein Bar 

Mars Hi-Protein bars are the perfect nostalgic sweet treat that’s now packed with protein. It is high-protein and low-carb, perfect for a quick snack. 

 3. Optimum Protein Bars 

 This Optimum protein par is similar to the Carb Killa Bar, but with a slightly different flavour and soft nougat layer supplying plenty of taste. 

 4. Mars Snickers Protein Bar
