GeniSoy Soy Protein Bar Review By Dave
Peanut Butter Fudge
"GeniSoy Soy Protein Bars provide 14 grams of high quality Soy Protein Isolate."
14 grams of protein is not too bad for a protein bar although I prefer 20 grams or more if possible. But 14 grams is alright and I am new to reviewing soy protein bars but I would expect that soy bars would have on average less protein per bar than regular protein bars.
"GeniSoy uses only water processed Isolated Soy Protein (SUPRO¯ brand Soy Protein Isolate). This process preserves the natural levels of Isoflavones (Genistein and Daidzein) found in Soy."
I cannot speak for this process but I believe that GeniSoy is a reputable enough company to make a claim that is accurate so I have no reason to disbelieve this particular claim.
"Each GeniSoy Protein Bar contains antioxidants vitamin E and selenium to help battle the harmful effects of free radicals in the body."
For this product to be rich in antioxidants is an additional benefit and I believe it adds to the overall quality and value of the bar.
"GeniSoy Soy Protein Bars contain no aspartame, cholesterol or artificial flavors."
Although I am not personally particularly concerned with aspartame, some people are and the fact that this product does not contain artificial flavours will be a positive thing for such individuals.
"The GeniSoy Soy Protein bar provides convenience and great taste for on-the-go lifestyles. Each bar has 14 grams of water-processed isolated soy protein and the antioxidants Vitamin E and Selenium. The chocolate uncoated bar contains no fat and is heart-healthy."
I completely agree with the convenience aspect of this bar. As mentioned above, the inclusion of antioxidants is a positive good and some will be happy that this bar does not contain any fat. I am more concerned with the lack of cholesterol and the heart-healthy claim.
In regards to the claim, I felt that GeniSoy was pretty honest. Therefore, I award the GeniSoy an 8/10 for the claim.
As mentioned above, I am new to reviewing soy protein bars and have nothing to compare it to, but I still think it tasted pretty good compared to other [non-soy] protein bars which I have tried. I consumed the "Peanut Butter Fudge" flavour and it was pretty good and roughly tasted as you would expect but while I am truly not a fan of soy protein powder, I did not find this soy protein bar to be any worse than a typical protein bar. I rate the taste an 8/10.
I found that GeniSoy bar had a soft and somewhat chewy texture with a slight crunch that I enjoyed. Therefore, for texture, I award GeniSoy a 9.5/10.
I felt that the claim was in order. The taste was great and the texture was pleasing. The only improvement I would suggest is that it contain more protein. However, this would more than likely upset the taste as high protein bars can usually be determined through taste and not in a good way, at least in my opinion. Overall, I was very pleased with the soy protein bar. Therefore, for an overall review, I award GeniSoy Peanut Butter Fudge bar a 9/10.
