Low-carb protein bars are a minefield for keto dieters, because many people on the diet think that just being low in net carbs is good enough. Any bar that markets itself as low-carb is almost certainly a poor choice for keto. Yet, Amazon searches for “keto bar” return many such bars. This is definitely a problem.

Pure Protein is a perfect example of a horrible bar that somehow sells well on Amazon, presumably because some like the taste (and may not realize they’re unhealthy). I normally taste test all bars that I review, but in the case of Pure Protein I couldn’t bring myself to put it in my body.

 

Seeing as it looks like a candy bar and contains copious amounts of maltitol and sucralose, I can’t say that I am surprised junk food lovers like the taste.

It’s hard to imagine anything worse than a Quest Bar, but Pure Protein manages. It has less fiber and fat, and even more artificial ingredients. Hankering for a healthier option yet? Eat your way to better health with Human Food Bar

The takeaway
Pure Protein Bars is a quintessential Fake Food bar that does not hold back on harmful ingredients such as Carnuba Wax, which I use to wax my car. If your health is a priority, avoid this bar.
