- Promax bars contain NO GLUTEN.
Promax Bars are certified Gluten-Free by the GFCO (Gluten-Free Certifying Organization). Strict standards have been set in the manufacturing facility to ensure no cross-contamination of surfaces, ingredients or finished products.
- Promax bars contain NO MALTITOL.
Maltitol is a sugar alcohol that is used as a sugar substitute in many bars which can cause gastrointestinal discomfort. Additionally, some forms of maltitol have been shown to have a high glycemic index equivalent to honey and only one less calorie per gram than sugar.
- Promax bars contain NO GELATIN.
Gelatin, typically made from the byproducts of the meat and leather industries, is an incomplete protein source. It lacks the amino acid, tryptophan, and contains only a small amount of methionine. Because of this, gelatin cannot be used as efficiently by your body as a complete protein such as whey or soy.
Q. Is there any risk that that milk ingredients in Promax products contain melamine?
A. No, the milk proteins used in Promax products are sourced in the U.S. and do not contain melamine.
Q. Why are the carbohydrates in a Promax Bar such a dietary must?
A. Carbohydrates are essential for two reasons:
(1) as an energy source, and
(2) for protein sparing.
Energy Source: The main function of carbohydrates is to serve as an energy fuel. The body’s most important energy source is glucose, also known as blood sugar. The most common source of glucose in the diet is the carbohydrate. The carbohydrates in our Promax High Protein Bars are specifically designed to give you both immediate and long-lasting energy.
Protein Sparing: Another reason why Promax includes carbohydrates is for its powerful protein sparing action. If your body doesn’t get sufficient carbohydrates, it starts breaking down the protein in your body to get the energy it needs. And that could rob your body of the protein it needs to maintain your daily life (see protein below).
Looking to shed fat? Remember…fat can only burn in the flame of carbohydrates.
Q. Why are the 20 grams of protein in a Promax Bar so important?
A. Protein comes from the Greek word meaning “of prime importance.” And protein – like the 20 grams you find in Promax Bar – serves 3 main functions.
New Tissue: The formation of new tissue – anabolism – requires the synthesis of protein. For kids, that means growth. For adults, it means everything from wound healing to recovery after exercise. This anabolic process is especially important for athletes or individuals who exercise regularly.
Protein “Turnover”: In adults, protein is continually being degraded and re-synthesized. For example, your blood cells must be replaced every 120 days. In addition, you lose protein through perspiration, urine, skin, hair, etc. Unlike fat, there are no protein “stores” in your body. That’s why this constant protein “turnover” requires replenishing by dietary protein.
Regulatory: Protein also helps regulate body functions like carrying oxygen to your blood, hormone production, blood clotting, and the formation of antibodies that fight infection.
Did you know… 12%-15% of your total body weight is protein? About 65% of your body’s total protein is in skeletal muscles. There are 50,000 protein-containing compounds in your body. 10% of your brain is made up of protein.
Q. Where does the protein in Promax bars come from?
A. The two major proteins in milk are whey and casein. Both are extremely high-quality proteins, and both are found in the Promax Bar.
Q. When is the best time to eat a Promax Bar?
A. Any time you want a quick, delicious and completely nutritious meal replacement is a good time to eat our healthy snack bar. Our good tasting protein bars make an ideal breakfast or lunch. Promax bars also make a great pick-me-up, especially in the afternoon.
Do you exercise? Promax Bar gives you the ultimate pre-workout energy boost as it replenishes your muscles’ “fuel tanks,” giving you both immediate and long-lasting energy. Promax Bar is also your best post-workout recovery meal, as its 20 full grams of quality protein quickly help you rebuild muscle fibers, supplying an on-the-spot stream of protein building blocks (i.e. amino acids).
Q. My kids simply love Promax bars. Can they eat them, too?
A. Certainly. In fact, protein is vital as your child progresses from infancy to adulthood. That’s because protein is needed for the formation of new tissue – for growth. Each Promax Bar contains 20 grams of high-quality protein. And the nutrients in a Promax Bar make it a perfect addition to your child’s lunchbox. Of course, a well-balanced and varied diet is essential for all humans. Consult your pediatrician for more information.
Q. If I’m pregnant, can I eat a Promax Bar?
A. Yes. Promax bars contain vital nutrients like protein, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, calcium, and folic acid, all of which your body needs during your pregnancy. And Promax Bar’s 20 grams of super high-quality protein helps you get the added protein you need for lactation. Many women report that a great-tasting Promax Bar is far more enjoyable to eat during the first months of pregnancy, when nausea is usually at its highest.
Did you know each liter of human milk contains 12 grams of protein? During lactation it is assumed a woman needs at least as much extra dietary protein as is secreted in the milk. Ask your ob-gyn for more information.
Q. Do all Promax bars have the same ingredients?
A. All Promax bars have essentially the same ingredients.
Q. Are Promax bars all natural?
A. Yes, all Promax protein bars use only all natural ingredients.
Q. Why are the antioxidants in a Promax Bar important?
A. Exercise releases free radicals. Free radicals can be detrimental to your health and even lower your athletic performance levels. That’s why our Promax protein nutrition bar gives you all the powerful antioxidants, including A, C, and E, that your body needs to protect itself.
Q. Why do you include vitamins and minerals in the Promax Bar?
A. Vitamins and minerals do more than help protect your health. They also help and direct energy release and protein synthesis (see “protein” and “carbs” above). Minerals also help maximize muscle function and prevent cramping.
Q. Is the Promax Bar really the best protein bar on the market?
A. In a head-to-head consumer taste test with the other leading brands, our Promax bar easily scored number one. And we continually hear that no other bar comes close to our great taste. Of course, taste is subjective, but once you try our bars, we think you’ll agree they are truly the best tasting protein bars on the market.
Q. Is there anyone who should not eat Promax bars?
A. Promax is not appropriate for diabetics who must watch their sugar intake as well as people who are allergic to whey, soy, wheat, or any type of nut.
Q. Are Promax Bars certified kosher?
A. Cookies ‘n Cream and Nutty Butter Crisp Promax bars are certified kosher.
