The Quest Hero Blueberry Cobbler Protein Bar contains a soft, chewy core with a blueberry-flavored topping, wrapped in a coating of white chocolate flavor — a nice change of pace from all of the chocolate-flavored bars out there. Each bar contains 170 calories, 17 grams of protein, 28 grams of carbohydrate and 12 grams of sugar. The carb in these bars comes from erythritol, sucralose and allulose (a natural sugar found in wheat, figs, raisins and jackfruit). Chemically, its structure is similar to that of carbohydrate, but it only contributes a fraction of the calories and does not raise blood glucose levels. Allulose tastes, feels and behaves like sugar, but has about one-tenth the calories as sugar. And it has received “Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS)” status from the FDA. If you’re looking for a gluten-free, keto-friendly protein bar, you may have found your hero in the Quest Hero Blueberry Cobbler Protein Bar.
