As an athlete, you know how important protein is when it comes to performance. It’s the foundation for quick muscle recovery after intense training, and athletes who train on a regular basis need more of the muscle-repairing macronutrient. Even if you’re not hitting the gym six days a week, protein plays an important role in helping maintain muscle and keeping your body functioning at its best. 

Over the years, supplement makers have come up with ever more creative ways to engineer high-protein products that get away from foods like chicken, fish, beef, or dairy,. 

From bars to powders to premade shakes, protein supplements remain some of the most popular items for athletes looking to stay on top of their nutrient needs. Now, one of the latest ways to get your protein while on the go may also be the most enjoyable. The tasty new Funnbar chews from BPI Sports let you satisfy your sweet tooth guilt-free: They provide 15 grams of protein per 10 individually wrapped soft chews with only 15 calories, 2 grams of carbs, and 0 grams of sugar or fat per chew.

The Protein Candy

BPI Funnbar

Funnbar chews contain a proprietary blend of proteins. The dairy-derived milk-protein isolate concentrate contain 80 percent casein, best known for its slow-digesting properties, so your body receives small doses of protein for an extended period of time. The remaining proteins come from whey protein isolate and whey protein concentrate, which are absorbed by the body at a much quicker pace. Research shows this combination has an exceptionally high biological value and an abundance of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), so your body can better absorb nearly all the protein provided. BCAAs are also shown to reduce muscle breakdown, increase fat loss, and minimize fatigue. 

Along with protein, Funnbar chews each have 1 gram of fiber, helping aid in digestion and keeping your appetite under control. They come in a variety of flavors, including Tropical Berry, Cookies and Cream, Caramel and Chocolate, Grape, and Citrus Blast. Since the chews are individually wrapped, you can eat a few and toss the rest in your gym bag — or nip a candy craving in the bud with this multitasking treat.
