PF (Proteinfabrikken) Oxygen Protein Bar Review

I’m not a big user of protein bars, but after I did a review of the popular ISS Oh Yeah Bars, I figured I had an excuse to try out some of the other tasty protein snack products on the market, and so here I am with another review of a protein bar. First out is the PF (Proteinfabrikken) Oxygen Protein Bar.

This product tastes great. Even though the Oh Yeah Bars are super popular worldwide for their taste, I’d have to say that I prefer the taste of this one – quite a bit, in fact. I tried the Strawberry/Banana flavor, and instantly fell for the awesome taste. Real candy doesn’t taste better than this, in my opinion. Right after my first bite of this thing I knew it would not be the last time I purchased this product. It really is one of the better protein supplements I’ve tasted in a while.

One could argue that a product like this is merely a protein fortified candy bar, and one might even be right. As opposed to relying on a high quality whey protein powder, for your extra protein needs, supplementing with a protein bar will naturally come with more sugars and fat in most cases, and this is no exception. An Oxygen Protein Bar weights 50 grams and gives you 14 grams of protein, 24 grams of carbs, but only 4.1 grams of fat – as opposed to the Oh Yeah Bar which at nearly (27g) twice the protein comes with more than 4 times the fat.

With a typical quality protein powder, you’re bound to get a nutritional value that is markedly different from this. One can expect 1 or 2 grams of carbohydrates for ever 10 grams of protein, and usually even less fat. Does that mean you should stay away from protein bars? I don’t think so. Instead, you’re probably best off not using them on a regular basis except for right after a workout, when you’ll actually be helped by the extra carbs they contain.

This product is not yet for sale in all parts of the world, but PF’s distribution network is growing fast, so if you’re after a superb tasting protein bar product see if you can get your hands on a twelve pack of these.
