ANSI Gourmet Cheesecake Bars – Reinvented: Cheesecake Has Never Been So Nutritious

May 17, 2017


FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & Kids 2*+

When I hear the word “cheesecake” I generally don’t associate it with something that serious athletes would eat on a regular basis, and I definitely don’t think of it as a health food. But thanks to ANSI and their line of Gourmet Cheesecake Bars, I have been proven wrong.


THE PRODUCT:
Advanced Nutrient Science International is a brand created for serious athletes looking for a nutritional advantage. As the parent company to Gourmet Cheesecake Natural Protein Bars, these bars are not only full of flavor, they are high in protein, low in carbs, and a great source of fiber.

Available in six flavors, including: Chocolate Peanut Butter, Chocolate Truffle, Chocolate Coconut, Birthday Cake, Raspberry Cheesecake Truffle, and Chocolate Banana, these bars have a soft texture making them divinely delicious all while being good for you – not something a traditional slice of cheesecake can usually claim to be.


NUTRITION-WISE:
ANSI Gourmet Cheesecake Natural Protein Bars are filled with 20 grams of Protein Isolate, which is guaranteed to be free of the rBST & rBGH hormones. In fact, these bars are made with 100% clean ingredients, all of which are non-GMO. They are also Gelatin and Gluten-free, and do not contain any sugar alcohols, soy, artificial sweeteners, trans fats, hydrogenated oils or high-fructose corn syrup.

With each bar containing around 220 calories, 70 of which are from fat, depending on the flavor you choose, ANSI Gourmet Cheesecake Bars are also low in net carbs, contain a whopping 19 grams of fiber and have less than 90mg of sodium. Moreover, they are sweetened with Stevia, ensuring that they have just the right amount of sweetness minus the extra calories and sugars that you will get from other bars you find on store shelves. In fact, there are only 5-7 grams of sugar per bar. And while some Stevia has a nasty aftertaste, the Stevia used in ANSI Gourmet Cheesecake Bars is great!


WHERE TO BUY:
You can buy ANSI Gourmet Cheesecake Bars directly from their Online Store.


FINAL THOUGHTS:
When I first heard of ANSI Gourmet Cheesecake Bars I was certain that these were going to be just another candy-inspired “nutritional” bar that really wasn’t that good for you at all. With its sweet taste and smooth texture, I could have bet that these were high in both sugars and calories – and definitely low in nutrition.

Well fortunately, I was wrong. Filled with Isolate Protein [that is free of rBST & rBGH hormones], and extremely high in fiber, these bars are also relatively low in calories, sugars and sodium. And now that they’ve been reformulated, they taste even better and truly are delicious – although I didn’t have anything bad to say about the first recipe either!

And while I tend to steer clear of dairy, especially if it’s non-organic, the fact that these bars are rBST & rBGH-free, and so high in fiber and protein, has made them a staple on my list of go-to bars (at least for my husband – since he eats dairy). Perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth while still being quick and healthy ANSI’s Gourmet Cheesecake Bars are even great for toddlers since they are so low in sugars – although they don’t know this so call it their “special treat” ;).

Try one or all of the newly reinvented ANSI Gourmet Cheesecake Bar for yourself and see how deliciously satisfying a Bar of Cheesecake can be!

FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & TODDLERS 10 MONTHS+*

It’s no surprise that kids want to eat what they see their friends eating – cue the goldfish, animal cookies and pretzels… But we all know that these are far from healthy, not to mention the fact that they contain allergens that a lot of kids just plain can’t eat. This makes it really hard on us parents and are some of the reasons I have come to LOVE Kay’s Naturals – not to mention that they taste pretty darn good too!
