Nutrition food bars provide a complete meal or snack in a very convenient form for times during the day that you are unable to eat a complete, balanced whole-foods based meal. Whether your job requires you to travel a lot, you have a busy meeting schedule, or you are just too busy to prepare a nutritious meal, there are times that a quick meal in a "candy bar" form is very convenient to have available. Sometimes it can save you from a trip to the unhealthy candy vending machine! As with the Meal Replacement Powders (MRP), nutrition food bars offer an excellent macronutrient (protein, carbohydrates, and fat) and micronutrient (vitamins and minerals) profile in a convenient food bar form. These bars are useful for in-between meal healthy snacks or as part of a meal itself. By eating at regular intervals throughout the day, you will avoid the intense hunger which often leads to overeating and unhealthy snacking. We carry several different bars which you should choose based on their features and you needs. If you are following the Zone diet, the ZonePerfectTM Bars, Balance Bars, or Twinlab PR*Ironman Bars may be your best choice. If you are following a low-fat diet, then the Promax Bar, Power Bars or MET-Rx bars may be a better choice for you. If you are primarily interested in supplementing your diet with Whey protein or other high quality protein powders while you eat whole food carbohydrates in whole-food form (for example: fruits and vegetables), then you might be interested in the Pure Protein Bar. Whatever your needs, Netrition offers a nutrition bar to help you achieve your goals!

Protein Powders Since Whey protein is the most prevalent form of protein powder sold today, we have grouped the protein powders into two main categories: Soy, Egg, and Vegetable Protein Powders Whey Protein Powders (including protein blends including whey protein)

In general, these powders will contain a higher percentage of protein compared to Whey Protein Concentrate - generally around 90% protein.

Below are products containing blends of various protein sources. Biotest Low Carb Grow!

Some people prefer to eat foods that are high in carbohydrates, so consuming protein drinks with meals allows them to continue to eat their preferred foods while getting the protein their body needs. Protein powder is also excellent for use in recipes to make Zone diet, low carbohydrate diet, ketogenic diet, or just high protein meals. The Biological Value, or BV, of a protein is an indicator of the quality of the protein. It is a measure of a protein's ability to be used by the body (or its bioavailability). It is a percentage (though the scale is skewed resulting in some BV's of greater than 100) of the absorbed protein that your body actually uses. Biological Values are indicators of which proteins are best at aiding nitrogen retention in muscles to help them maintain or grow in mass. Many of the whey protein powder manufacturers claim that their products have BV values well above regular whey protein by various techniques such as ion-exchange processing, hydrolization, and adding other ingredients such as specific amounts of limiting essential amino acids. Hydrolyzation is a process breaking large peptides into smaller ones. It is sometimes referred to as "pre-digested". Regular undigested whey will be broken down into di- and tri-peptides via enzymes in the gut and will be absorbed, but the process takes a while. Hydrolyzation is useful when protein delivery is needed very quickly so the body doesn't have to require the time and enzymes doing it. The benefit is of having a quickly absorbed protein immediately after a workout to ensure the muscle tissue is flooded with nutrients in a timely manner.
