PureFit Nutrition Bars

Review

These nutrition/energy bars are new to New Zealand and are currently only available online, although they will be distributed throughout NZ stores in the coming months. Among other things, they are kosher-certified and vegan-approved. Do not contain dairy, wheat, or gluten, and will not melt in their packaging. PureFit works diligently to provide high-quality, award-winning nutrition bars without artificial ingredients, sugar alcohols or common allergens, including milk, wheat or gluten. They are available in Peanut Butter Crunch, Almond Crunch, Berry Almond Crunch and Chocolate Brownie. See their website for more information and ordering

Pros

High-protein (18gms per bar), No wheat, gluten or dairy. Low glycemic (40%/30%/30% carbohydrate, protein and fat to keep blood sugar stable). Vegan. Trans fat free and there are no artificial alcohol sugars. They have a non-melt convenience, so great to take anywhere, and are safe for children. The best thing is that they taste authentic! My favourites were the chocolate brownie and berry almond crunch, yum!

Cons

The texture takes a bit of getting used to. If you’ve never had a protein bar before and are expecting a conventional museli bar, then you will be disappointed.

Bottom Line

For a busy lifestyle, pregnancy or nursing mums, kids that do a lot of activities, and sports people, these are the perfect choice to keep you going! Designed for the whole family, they taste fantastic, and best of all aren’t full of harmful ingredients. I will be keeping an eye out for them

Comments about this product / add yours

I originally found these bars online and considered ordering a box….i’m vegan which is what attracted me, and just this week found the PureFit bars in a health food store at last. I tried the chocolate brownie one.  It tastes like any other protein bar. But these are high in fat and calories like most protein bars…they also pack 18g of protein which may upset some people’s stomach’s if you’re not used to that much protein! I’d suggest they are really for people seeking extra protein in their diets, not the odd snack.
