Julian Bakery Does it Again ★★★

The Most Bizarre Bar of the Bunch

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.

Return to our top 10 protein bars list for better options. 

Julian Bakery Bars Quick Take
The Takeaway
Trading low net carbs for a gut-disturbing 18g of tapioca fiber, Julian Bakery’s low carb protein bar is simply bizarre.

Psst! Got a moment?

If you're reading this, you came here for one of my many protein bar reviews, which means you're a fellow bar eater!

If you found my article helpful, I hope you'll take a look at Human Food Bar, which I created after testing over 100 bars. It was inspired by the Hunter Gatherer diet, because they're the healthiest humans around.

The bar's unique formulation can help you cut cravings, lose weight, sleep better, have more energy, regulate digestion, and more. It does this by balancing your gut biome.

Human Food Bar comes recommended by New York Times best-selling author Dr. Steven Gundry, MD.
