GeniSoy Soy Protein Bars Review By Matt C
GeniSoy Soy Protein Bars
I have been reviewing a number of protein/energy bars in the recent past and at this point have tried numerous bars and now know how bars will compare to many others since I have tried so many. Below I will list the claims of the GeniSoy bars and assess each point individually and discuss how it holds up:
- GeniSoy Soy Protein Bars provide 14 grams of high quality Soy Protein Isolate.
- GeniSoy uses only water processed Isolated Soy Protein (SUPROŽ brand Soy Protein Isolate). This process preserves the natural levels of Isoflavones (Genistein and Daidzein) found in Soy.
- Each GeniSoy Protein Bar contains antioxidants vitamin E and selenium to help battle the harmful effects of free radicals in the body.
- GeniSoy Soy Protein Bars contain no aspartame, cholesterol or artificial flavors.
Now to analyze each of these product highlights individually in greater detail:
"GeniSoy Soy Protein Bars provide 14 grams of high quality Soy Protein Isolate."
GeniSoy bars contain 14 grams of soy protein per bar, which is particularly relevant for vegans and other people wishing to consume soy protein as a protein source. Another bar which is high in soy protein is Clif Clif Bars. If you are seeking soy protein, either bar comes highly recommended.
"GeniSoy uses only water processed Isolated Soy Protein (SUPROŽ brand Soy Protein Isolate). This process preserves the natural levels of Isoflavones (Genistein and Daidzein) found in Soy."
I have never heard of this particular process of preserving natural levels of isoflavones and will research it starting now. As far as isoflavones are concerned, research on the inclusion of them in food differs radically, so I have yet to draw a conclusion whether or not they should be sought out in supplements and food items, and as it is now I would rather avoid them until I do further research on the matter.
"Each GeniSoy Protein Bar contains antioxidants vitamin E and selenium to help battle the harmful effects of free radicals in the body."
Antioxidants are something which I find important to consume and it is great that GeniSoy bars are antioxidant and vitamin rich. Battling free radicals in the body is very important.
"GeniSoy Soy Protein Bars contain no aspartame, cholesterol or artificial flavors."
The 0 cholesterol of GeniSoy bars is something that some people may seek out in food and supplements and consider to be very important, but I do not concern myself much with claims like that. The cholesterol in food is not directly related to cholesterol in your body. That is oversimplifying a complex issue and there is much more to it than that. However, I am not a big fan of aspartame for a myriad of reasons. It is a toxic chemical which I wish to avoid at all costs. As for other artificial flavours, I generally seek food items and supplements which have none, although that is pretty hard to avoid. Both of these qualities are very important to me in a protein bar.
GeniSoy bars can be purchased in the following flavours at the bodybuilding.com supplement superstore:
- Chocolate Fudge Brownie
- Chunky Peanut Butter Fudge
- Fudge Cookies & Cream
- Honey Creamy Peanut Yogurt
Interestingly, the flavour that I tried is not available on bodybuilding.com as I purchased it in a health food store. The flavour I tried was "Chocolate Mint". I felt that it tasted great and I definitely want to check out all of the other flavours available.
On the basis of nutritional content and taste, GeniSoy bars get my approval for sure. In terms of price, you can order 12 bars for $12.49 which is a quite reasonable price. That works out to $1.04 per bar which is quite reasonable. At 14 grams of protein and 240 calories per bar, GeniSoy is just slightly less than what I would consider ideal for a protein bar. Ideally, I prefer bars which have 300 calories and 20 grams of protein. Normally bars like that are slightly more expensive in terms of cost per bar, so I can't really complain about the price since it pretty well balances out and makes GeniSoy bars pretty inexpensive in terms of overall value in the protein/energy bar market. Overall I can recommend this bar most definitely and reward it an A.
