Maximuscle Promax Meal Bars contain a combination of protein (21.6g), carbohydrate (17g) and fat (5.7g). They contain a blend of faster digesting whey protein and slower digesting milk proteins for a longer sustained release of amino acids, helping to prevent feelings of hunger. While the bar itself is low GI, the carbohydrates contained in this bar primarily come from sugar and sugar syrup, both of which are very high GI. The combination of only a small amount of total carbs with protein and fat helps slow the overall digestion of the bar, thus making it low GI, but the actual sources of carbohydrate should not be considered ideal for a healthy snack, such as those found in fruit, vegetables and whole grain sources. However, because of the relatively small amount of total carbohydrate and fat and a decent dose of protein, this is a good protein snack containing only 865kJ/206kcal for between meals.
While Maximuscle also suggest that this is “perfect for use before and after exercise”, a supplement containing more carbohydrate and taken in liquid form will always be a better option for your pre and post workout nutrition.
- A blend of fast and slow digesting protein (21.6g) sources makes this ideal as a snack to up protein intake between meals without taking in too many calories (865kJ/206kcal).
- Relatively low in carbohydrate and fat make it ideal for those concerned with upping protein without the simultaneous increases in carbohydrate and fat consumption.
Who’s it for
Maximuscle Promax Meal bars are ideal for those who are resistance training regularly and are looking to increase protein intake between meals. They’re best suited for those looking to make lean gains, as the small amount of calories in total are not ideal for those looking to increase overall calories for mass gain.
How to use
1-2 bars a day as a snack between meals, do not exceed 3 bars per day.
