Are Your Protein Bars Paleo? 9 Types of Ingredients You Want to Avoid

Chart Notes on the Paleo Protein Bars:

  • First, most paleo protein bars are all gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free. Therefore, I combined them into one column and noted if otherwise.
  • Second, the price listed is per bar. Keep in mind that some products are larger than others, however, the size doesn’t vary too much.
  • Third, products are usually sold in boxes of 8-15. Therefore they are cheaper than when purchased individually.

Are Kind Bars Paleo Protein Bars?… 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.
