20 Best Tasting Gluten Free Protein Bars, Reviewed (Vegan + Raw)

20 Best Tasting Gluten Free Protein Bars, Reviewed (Vegan + Raw)

A curated and reviewed list of the best, best tasting gluten free protein bars, featuring organic protein bars with vegan, raw, soy free and dairy free ingredients.

Curating for quality protein bars is rather challenging and not as cut and dry as curating for products in clothing or home goods, for example. There’s a wide variety of scientific and anecdotal literature surrounding what the best or most healthy protein to fat to carbohydrate ratio is; how much sugar is needed to provide a good source of energy; are non-GMO ingredients best. The list goes on and on. Of course, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) does offer it’s daily value (i.e., %DV) recommendations based on serving sizes and weight averages among humans, but even this has been called into question. Sometimes for good reason. Most recently, KIND Bars got into a disagreement with the FDA over healthy fats and sugar quantities. So, for this collection, we curated for very specific qualities related to ingredient quality, but left the nutritional aspects up to. That is, if you’re active, you may want bars with more protein, sugars and fats — whereas if you’re not as active, perhaps you want a protein bar that doubles a small meal. Simply, though, this collection is curated based on the best tasting gluten free protein bars. We tried many of these, but not all — and, of course, taste is subjective. Lastly, for those who don’t know, gluten is a substance present in cereal grains, especially wheat, that is responsible for the elastic texture of dough. It’s also used as a binder. Perhaps your diet requires you to remove gluten, or maybe it’s a personal choice. Nevertheless, you won’t find it in these protein bars. Hopefully you’ll agree that these are some of the best tasting gluten free protein bars. If so, tell us in the comments.
