Promax Energy Bar Frequently Asked Questions

Promax Core energy bars have been a mainstay in sports nutrition for over 16 years. Promax has countless fans who love their great taste and balanced nutrition. You get 20g of high quality protein, 18 vitamins and minerals, a balance of fast and slower release carbohydrate packaged into a bar that tastes awesome.

It will leave you satiated and ready to get on with the task at hand.
Do Promax energy bars contain a beneficial amount of protein?
Yes. Promax energy bars are an excellent source of high quality, complete protein. The highest protein per bar is found in regular Promax bars (20g/bar), then PromaxLS and Crunch (18g/bar) followed by Fit ‘n Crisp (13g/bar). They provide between 26- 40% of the recommended daily intake of protein (based on FDA guidelines) depending on the particular bar. The amount of protein in a Promax Core bar is the equivalent grams of protein to eating 3 large eggs (21g protein), two cups of low-fat milk (22g protein) or 4 ounces of canned tuna (20g protein).
Protein is an important part of a balanced nutrition program because it contains amino acids that are the building blocks of every structure in our body, including skin, hair, nails, muscle tissue, hormones and the immune system. Nine of these amino acids are classified as essential, meaning they cannot be manufactured by our bodies and must come from food. The protein in Promax energy bars helps the body recover after exercise, form new tissue and regulate key body functions.
Are Promax energy bars made with high-quality protein?
Absolutely. All of the proteins in Promax energy bars (soy, whey and milk casein) are complete proteins, which contain all nine amino acids, the building blocks of every structure in our body. Each of these three protein sources has the highest Protein Digestibility-Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) of 1, indicating they are all complete proteins.
Promax energy bars do not contain any gelatin, an incomplete protein source typically derived from processing pigs and cow skins and hoofs, which has a PDCAAS score of 0.
Do Promax energy bars contain favorable amounts of carbohydrates?
Yes, and, contrary to what you may have heard, carbohydrates in moderation are good for you! They act as the primary, clean-burning energy source in the body, help stabilize blood sugar levels to help maintain optimal physical and mental performance and carry protein to the muscle cells. A steady flow of blood glucose from dietary carbohydrates also quells hunger cravings and prevents lean muscle tissue from being sacrificed as an energy source. Promax bars' balanced combination of carbohydrates, protein and dietary fat help sustain energy levels and support appetite satisfaction.
Why do Promax energy bars contain different types of natural sweeteners?
Promax energy bars are designed with different sweeteners to help optimize glycemic response. Some natural sweeteners, like dextrose, enter the bloodstream rapidly. Others, such as fructose, break down much slower. In a meal or nutrition supplement, when a profile of varying levels of sugars are combined with protein and fat, it creates a product that gradually increases blood glucose levels (associated with energy levels) and maintains them for an extended period of time. Stevia is used in PromaxLS and Crunch as a non-nutritive sweetener and elicits no glycemic response. If you are looking for Promax energy bars with less sugar, PromaxLS, Fit ‘n Crisp and Crunch are great choices.
Why do you include vitamins and minerals in some Promax energy bars?
Similar to a balanced whole food meal or snack, Promax Core and LS bars provide our bodies with beneficial amounts of carbohydrates, protein, dietary fat, and vitamins and minerals. Carbohydrates, protein and fat are known as macronutrients. Vitamins and minerals are known as micronutrients. They work together synergistically to support energy regulation, metabolism, digestion, immunity, lean tissue and bone maintenance, hormonal response, and a myriad of other important bodily functions. Promax Core and LS bars are an excellent source of 18 essential vitamins and minerals.
Which Promax energy bars are gluten-free?
Promax Core, PromaxLS and Crunch bars are certified gluten-free by the GFCO (Gluten Free Certifying Organization). The GFCO defines the standard for gluten-free as less than 10 ppm which is half the proposed FDA standard of 20 ppm gluten. GFCO certification requires that each ingredient has been evaluated and approved by the GFCO as gluten-free. In addition, strict standards have been set in the manufacturing facility to assure no cross-contamination. Finally, the finished product is tested as final assurance that Promax bars comply with the GFCO certification. Promax Fit ‘n Crisp bars contain no gluten ingredients but have not yet been certified by the GFCO.
Are Promax energy bars free from artificial preservatives, sweeteners, flavors and colors?Yes. Promax energy bars contain NO artificial flavors, sweeteners, preservatives or colors. That includes no sucralose, aspartame, ace-K or sodium benzoate. Promax uses tocopherols (which are derived from soybeans) in Promax Crunch to preserve freshness.
Do Promax energy bars contain trans-fats?
No. Promax energy bars are formulated with NO partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. Hydrogenated oils are a primary contributor of harmful trans-fats in food products. Promax uses only vegetable fats and vegetable oils in Promax energy bars.
Do Promax energy bars contain high fructose corn syrup?
No. Promax energy bars do not contain high fructose corn syrup.
Do Promax energy bars contain maltitol?
No. All Promax energy bars are maltitol free. Maltitol is a sugar alcohol that is used as a sugar substitute, which can cause gastrointestinal discomfort. Excessive use can have a laxative effect. Additionally, some forms of maltitol have been shown to have a glycemic index equivalent to honey and only one less calorie per gram than sugar.
Do Promax energy bars contain gelatin?
No. Gelatin, typically made from the byproducts of the meat and leather industries, is an incomplete protein source. It lacks the amino acid tryptophan and contains only a small amount of methionine. Because of this, gelatin cannot be used as efficiently by your body as a complete protein such as soy or whey.
Are Promax energy bars just for athletes or bodybuilders?
No, Promax energy bars are not just for athletes or bodybuilders. They offer portable nutrition for on-the-go moms/dads or busy professionals who, at some point in the day, skip a meal or snack on junk food. You can utilize Promax energy bars to fill in daily gaps where you typically skip a meal or make an unfavorable food choice. Promax energy bars can complement a proper, whole food diet.
My kids simply love Promax energy bars. Are they appropriate for children?
Yes. Half of a Promax Core, LS or Crunch Bar is a great snack for children. A whole bar may also be used as a snack or meal replacement for older kids that tend to skip meals or have little time to eat properly between activities. Promax Fit ‘n Crisp is a great snack for children of all ages. It is always a good idea to consult with your child's pediatrician before using Promax energy bars or other nutritional supplements.
If I'm pregnant, can I eat Promax energy bars?
Yes. Promax energy bars contain protein, calcium, folate, and other important prenatal nutrients required during pregnancy and lactation; however, we recommend that they are used for snacks and not meal replacements. Promax energy bars, along with nutrient-dense meals, help assure that females get the extra calories necessary during pregnancy and lactation. Always consult a physician before using Promax energy bars or other nutritional supplements during pregnancy.
Is there anyone who should not eat Promax energy bars?
Yes. Promax does not recommend their energy bars for individuals with whey, soy, peanut, or tree nut allergies. That said, Promax Fit ‘n Crisp bars are made in a peanut-free facility, and are therefore safe for those with peanut allergies. People with diabetes or hypoglycemia should consult a physician before consuming Promax energy bars.
When is the best time to eat Promax energy bars?
Enjoy Promax energy bars as part of your exercise routine or eat daily as a balanced snack or meal replacement. Consume 30-60 minutes before exercise for energy or within 30 minutes after your workout for post-exercise recovery.
Why do you recommend drinking 8-12 ounces of water with a Promax energy bar?
Promax energy bars are nutrient-dense and require liquids to efficiently breakdown and disperse their specific proportions of carbohydrates, protein, dietary fat, vitamins and minerals. Water is the best choice because it is non-caloric, caffeine-free and will not compromise a Promax energy bar's nutrition profile.
