Extend Nutrition has released its new sugar-free and gluten-free protein bars that are clinically proven to help control blood sugar for six to nine hours, according to the St. Louis-based company. The new Cookies & Cream and Chocolate & Caramel bars currently are available at extendbar.com, with retail sales to begin later this year.
The two new all-natural bars are sweetened with stevia, sugar free, low glycemic, packed with 10g of protein and have 130-140 calories.
“Many popular protein bars that are marketed to health-conscious consumers are actually loaded with sugar and fat, in an attempt to taste good. Amazingly, our R&D team developed a bar that not only has superior nutrition, but has an unbeatable taste,” said Jonathan Lindberg, outreach manager.
Chocolate & Caramel boasts a layer of chocolate nougat, topped with caramel and coated in sugar-free chocolate. (Available in a pack of 15, 1.48-oz. bars, MSRP $23.99)
Cookies & Cream offers a cookie-dough flavored nougat topped with sweet cream then dipped in a sugar-free chocolate coating. (Available in a pack of 15, 1.48-oz. bars, MSRP $23.99)
Extend Nutrition says it is the only company with a sugar-free and gluten-free protein bar that is clinically proven to help control blood sugar for six to nine hours. In addition to the bars, Extend offers a variety of healthy choices, including crunchy snacks and shake mixes.
“We have always been committed to helping people take small, simple steps to healthier living, and now we are making it easier and tastier than ever with our new products,” said Kevin Dalrymple, the company’s president.
