No matter how well you plan, sometimes you have to grab something on the go. Protein bars are great in theory, but when you take a good look at the label, you’ll realize most aren’t much better than a candy bar. Many use low-quality protein sources, artificial sweeteners, simple carbs, and unnecessary fats. Luckily, you don’t have to fall prey to these predictable pitfalls. 

MuscleTech’s Mission1 protein bars provide 20 to 21 grams of clean, quality protein plus the complex carbohydrates you need to fuel your day. The bars are available in three flavors: Cookies & Cream, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and Chocolate Brownie, all of which contain 100 percent protein isolate; five net carbs max; 17 to 20g of fiber; 1g of sugar; and no artificial flavors, colors, or sugar alcohols. 

Quality Protein

Many protein bars contain protein from cheap sources like collagen or gelatin, which aren’t optimal for building lean muscle. The Mission1 bar contains 100% whey and milk isolate, which are more ideal for protein synthesis.

Carb Control

Mission1 bars are meant to be more than a candy bar with protein. To that end, they contain up to 20g of fiber to only 1g of sugar and no more than five net carbs. On top of that, they have zero sugar alcohols, which are often the cause of bloating and digestive problems.

Real Ingredients

With Mission1 bars, you’re getting absolutely zero artificial flavors and colors. To sweeten the bars, MuscleTech uses only stevia, a natural, plant-derived sweetener. They also have no fillers, so every ingredient carries a benefit.
