The priority for any protein bar has to be the protein content. But the majority of protein bars get their protein from dairy or animal sources like whey and egg protein. Free Soul protein bars contain a whopping 15g of plant-based protein in every bar so they’re suitable for vegans, vegetarians and anyone with an egg or lactose allergy.
With a blend of soy protein, pea protein and wheat protein, these protein bars contain a complete spectrum of essential amino acids. The high protein content is also brilliant for helping you to feel fuller for longer. Pea protein has been shown to aid weight loss, lower blood glucose and reduce blood pressure.
Real cocoa powder
Cocoa powder is made from cocoa beans that are crushed and the fat and cocoa butter extracted. Real cocoa powder is one of the richest sources of polyphenols or naturally occurring antioxidants that have been shown to have powerful effects in the body.
Some of the benefits of polyphenols include lowering blood pressure, reducing inflammation and improving cholesterol. Cocoa powder has also been found to improve blood flow to the brain and it may have a role to play in improving cognitive health too.
Besides the benefits, real cocoa powder just tastes good! You can beat cocoa powder for providing that satisfying chocolate flavour. Artificial flavourings just don’t cut it and we don’t believe in compromising!
Tapioca is extracted from the cassava root, a plant native to South America. It’s a common part of the diet in many parts of Africa, Asia and South America.
Free Soul bars contain soluble tapioca fiber. What makes tapioca great is that it’s gluten-free and keto-friendly. It’s a GMO-free natural sweetener that also doubles up as a source of resistant starch, helping to keep your blood sugar under control. Tapioca also contains iron, fiber and protein!
Super low sugar
Call us crazy but any healthy snack should contain minimal amounts of sugar right? Many protein bars on the market claim to be a clean snack option but some brands contain up to 30g sugar in every bar.
Instead, Free Soul protein bars are formulated to give your body a big protein hit minus the sugar rush. With just 0.2g of sugar in every bar, you get an energy boost without the dramatic blood sugar spikes of other sugar-heavy snacks.
Research has shown that eating protein with carbohydrate-rich food leads to significantly lower blood glucose levels than eating just carbohydrates alone. In another study of high-protein, low-carbohydrate snacks, participants were found to have a lower glycaemic response after eating protein-rich snacks compared to ultra-processed sweet foods.
High protein, low sugar snacks don’t cause the same blood sugar spike as other snack options. This is important because lower blood glucose levels means less chance of decreased insulin response over time. So next time you find yourself craving something sweet, reach for a low sugar, high protein bar instead.
What’s more, Free Soul protein bars contain just 150 calories so you can snack away without thinking about the impact on your blood sugar, insulin or healthy eating plans!
