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 [obviously] high in protein, low in carbs, and a great source of fiber.
Available in three flavors, including: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cheesecake, Strawberry Supreme Cheesecake and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake, 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. These bars are also Gelatin and Gluten-free, and do not contain any sugar alcohols or soy.
Each bar contains around 180 calories, 50 of which are from fat. Low in net carbs, each bar contains 17-19 grams of fiber, has less than 90mg of sodium, and is sweetened with Stevia, ensuring that it has the perfect 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.
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. Plus, these bars are absolutely delicious!
And although 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, especially when I am in the mood for something that will satisfy my sweet tooth while still being quick and healthy. Oh, and they are even great for toddlers since they are so low in sugars!
Try one or all of ANSI Gourmet Cheesecake Bar for yourself and see how deliciously satisfying a bar of Cheesecake [flavors] can be!
