Paleo protein bars typically contain healthy, whole-food ingredients. However, check the ingredient label. In fact, some products may surprise you.
Chart Notes on the Paleo Protein Bars:
- Most paleo protein bars are all gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free. Therefore, I combined them into one column and noted if otherwise.
- The price listed is per bar. Keep in mind that some products are larger than others, however, the size doesn’t vary too much.
- Products are usually sold in boxes of 8-15, therefore they are cheaper than when purchased individually.
… What About KIND Bars?
In addition, KIND bars have all-natural ingredients and don’t contain gluten. Plus, they have low glycemic levels (minimal sugar). However, all flavors that I saw contained puffed rice – which some paleo eaters may not (or may) like.
