Julian Bakery Whey Protein Bars Review
Julian Bakery is a rather unusual brand that has come up with some odd products over the years, including some of the first meat bars. They seem to miss on taste and texture most of the time, and this low-carb protein bar is no exception.
It’s basically just a hunk of grass-fed whey protein with a ton of tapioca starch. And I do mean a ton: there’s 18g of fiber in this modest 130 calorie bar. If you can tolerate 18g of tapioca starch without getting a stomach ache, it’s possible that this bar could be good for your gut bacteria (they feed off resistant starch).
The super low net carb count may make this seem like an excellent option for keto, but it’s sorely lacking in fat which means you’re going to be left hungry. Like Julien Bakery’s other products, I don’t really understand this bar.
