An Introduction to Huel Bars

On the face of it, all snack bars can seem the same and it can be hard to see the wood for the trees. Don’t worry though we’re going to give you the lowdown on the different types of bars on the market and explain what makes Huel Bars special.

Energy Bars

Energy bars are most often the best selling snack bars on the market and they tend to be super high in sugar, often 5 teaspoons plus per bar! This is great if you’re doing some prolonged exercise, we’re talking 1 hour or more, but for all other times, this sugar is just adding calories without any other nutrients or purpose.

Energy bars may contain some added vitamins and minerals, but not always, and they probably won’t contain all 27 essential vitamins and minerals.

Huel guide to vitamins and minerals

Granola Bars

A granola bar usually consists of oats, grains, and nuts. They do provide carbohydrates and fiber however, they lack protein, good fats, and again those hard to get essential vitamins and minerals. Despite their often healthy and natural appearance, they are often high in sugar to appeal to your taste buds.

Candy Bars

The focus of a candy bar is not nutrition but taste. The issue is candy bars are high in sugar and fats without providing any real nutritional value. Having a candy bar every now and then is okay as of course food can bring enjoyment but you don’t want to be having one every day.

Complete Nutrition Bars

This is where the Huel v3.1 Bars and Huel Complete Protein Bars come in. As with any Huel meal or snack, each bar provides ideal amounts of protein, essential fats (omega-3 and 6), carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins & minerals. Or more simply, every Huel bar provides everything you need in a snack, it’s complete.

Huel Bars are not:

  • JUST a protein bar. Although both bars contain protein and Huel Complete Protein bar has 20g* protein per bar, they contain much, much more than just protein.
  • an energy bar. A Huel Bar contains at least 75% less sugar compared to a typical energy bar, but also provides essential fats, fiber, vitamins and minerals in the right amounts.
  • a candy bar. That one is obvious, right?
