Best protein bars 2022: Boost your energy on-the-go

If you’re on the hunt for a tasty and satisfying snack that supports your fitness goals, the best protein bars can provide the perfect solution. Not only are they a good way to increase your protein intake, they can help to increase satiety (the feeling of fullness) and hopefully steer you away from unhealthy temptations. 

“Protein is the king of nutrients when it comes to building muscle or improving your body composition,” adds Gareth Nicholas, head performance nutritionist at Maximuscle (opens in new tab). “As an energy source, unlike fat and carbohydrates, we are unable to store protein in the body. We either help create muscle or the unutilised protein is converted into a different energy.”
