Finally, a Gut-Friendly Protein Bar

I developed Evolution Protein Bars because I was tired of all the “health” bars on the market that all gave me an upset stomach.

Evolution Bars are actually healthy, taste great, and are free of the artificial sweeteners and prebiotic sweeteners that tend to be problematic for so many people, myself included.

Why Dr. Ruscio, DC Recommends it

  • A well-formulated snack bar that is a healthy on-the-go option. 

  • Those who struggle with blood sugar or have pre-diabetes or other metabolic risk factors can benefit from the lower sugar, higher protein formulation.

  • Also useful as a workout snack — either for energy beforehand or to refuel and repair muscles after exercise. 

  • Individually packaged bar — good for aiding portion control.

What the Research Shows

  • Higher protein diets can have metabolic benefits. A 2018 randomized controlled trial with 162 overweight/obese adults found that 16 weeks of using high-protein meal replacements and healthy between-meal snacks improved included cholesterol, triglycerides, insulin, blood glucose and blood pressure [1].

  • Research is overall unclear as to the effects of snacking on health outcomes [2]. However healthy snacking can have these benefits:  

    • Boosts energy when blood sugar levels drop

    • Curbs appetite to prevent overeating at the next meal

    • Provides extra nutrients

  • When people with type 2 diabetes were given moderately high-protein morning and afternoon snacks for four weeks, participants lost a modest but significant amount of weight (everage 2.2 pounds) compared with their standard diet, without changes in calorie intake [3] .

  • Whey protein supplementation used alongside resistance exercise is associated with greater muscle gains, and more significant body fat loss [45]

  • Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) may contribute to slowed gastric emptying and better satiety, a 2019 study suggested. It showed that MCTs were more satiating than LCTs (long-chain triglycerides) [6]

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is it not completely sugar free?

For palatability reasons it is not possible to produce a completely sugar free product. We use naturally sourced sugars and some natural monk fruit sweetener. The bar has only 14% of the recommended daily limit of added sugars - less than the sugar in one apple. Nevertheless we suggest, just like all snacks, Evolution bars should be eaten in moderation.

What are the properties of monk fruit sweetener?

Monk fruit sugar comes from the antioxidant-rich monk fruit and is many times sweeter than actual sugar. Monk fruit sugar doesn’t affect your blood sugar levels and can improve your glycemic control. It also has anti-inflammatory effects.

How many bars can you consume a day?

This is down to individual choice as there are no ingredients in these bars that would make eating several of them unsafe. That said, snacking should alway be done in healthy moderation and we wouldn't advise more than one snack in the morning and one in the afternoon for most people.
