What's in your Protein Bar?

Check the label before you grab your next protein bar. With more companies jumping on the protein bar wagon, the quality of the protein can vary and some of their ingredients are questionable. On average, a standard protein bar has about 20 grams of protein. That's almost half the amount an average-sized, inactive woman needs  a day. Some protein bars may contain as much as 30 grams of sugar (6 teaspoons), which exceeds the AHA daily recommended 25 gram cap. Fractionated/hydrogenated palm kernel oil creates the chocolate coating on many bars and contains a high concentration of saturated fat. Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) is a chemical preservative that  extends shelf life and has shown a link to cancer.
