Energy bars have become extremely popular in our society. Some are high in protein for post workout replenishment, some high in carbs for pre-workout fuel. Others are consumed as snacks or meal replacements. Among the sea of available bars, how do you choose one to suit your personal taste and nutritional needs? Make your own!
Element Bars actually allows you to “build your own bar”. They offer two types of custom whole foods bars: classic and endurance. All Element Bars are hand made from whole ingredients and you get to choose items from the following categories: core, fruits, nuts, sweets and boosts. The combinations are endless. This unique experience allows you to play with all the ingredients to achieve the nutritional balance you desire. As you select each ingredient, the nutrient value adjusts right before your eyes. Don’t know what to choose? No problem! Element Bars offers popular readymade flavors at a lower cost than the custom bars. We had the pleasure of tasting samples of Almond Sunrise, Datey Divine, Chocolate Cherry, and Autumn Blueberry. All were delicious and each provides a different nutrient profile.
Element Bars also produces a variety of bars entitled “Element Vitality”. According to the website, these bars were designed with chefs and dietitians to help address common side effects of cancer treatment. These bars are mini sized for better tolerance and are available in 4 flavors. And, 10% of the profits are donated to the American Cancer Society.
