Ratio Protein Bars

Overall Rating: 3.5 STARS

About Ratio:

At RATIO, our research team has spent the last 12 months developing a bar that meets the demand for a clean protein bar. We started with 24 grams of a high-quality blend of hormone free protein, using whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate, and milk protein concentrate. From there we created 6 delicious gluten-free bars using only 100% natural and non-GMO ingredients, using minimal sugar while avoiding exotic mystery ingredients.”

My Thoughts:

Rewind a few years ago and you would not have had many non-gmo options available in bar form. Luckily, there are now bars like Ratio that are delicious and are entirely non-gmo.

Though completely organic is the gold standard for me, finding products that are completely non-gmo is one big step in the right direction–and makes them heads and shoulders above many bars you’ll find in big box grocery stores.

Similar to the name of these bars, I consider it important to have a diet that has a balanced ratio–with adequate amounts of carbohydrates, good fats and proteins. These ratio bars help keep you on track, whereas many bars are very protein heavy or very carbohydrate heavy (which is fine, but then I often pair it with a carb or protein to compliment it).

There are many ways to get protein in a day’s time (using both plant and animal protein sources) and these Ratio bars help provide me with a significant amount of whey & egg albumen. You can’t beat the convenience of a bar. Though I would not recommend replacing whole food meals with a bar, these bars are great to have in your purse or for when you need a quick meal.

Taste-wise, these bars are incredibly delicious. I have tried many protein bars and these are some of the best tasting bars that I’ve ever tried. I especially love the cake batter flavor with a glass of coconut milk.

In conclusion, these bars are better quality and taste better than most bars. If ratio starts incorporating organic ingredients, I will surely be a customer in the future.
