Catalyst Bars vs Other Bars

Catalyst Meal Replacement Bars in Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Peanut Butter Brownie

Catalyst Bars aren’t your run-of-the-mill protein bar or energy bar. 

They are meal replacements. They satisfy your hunger, are nutritionally sound, and taste good!

How do you know they are different?
Their features can be separated into two groups:
1) the weight of the bar, calories, and macronutrients, and
2) additional desired benefits.

Everything you eat brings you closer to your goals or pulls you further away. Make an informed decision and be successful!

When comparing bars, think about
1) the size of the bar. Does the bar satisfy your hunger or are you hungry again in an hour or two? 
Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter is 78 grams in weight (2.75 ounces). Many other bars are 60 grams or less. These are snack bars. In just a few bites, you will have finished the bar and still be hungry.

2) How much nutrition do you get from the bar? Catalyst Bars are nutrient-dense. Peanut Butter Brownie has 280 calories. Of these, just 4 calories (1 gram) is sugar. None of the 280 calories come from the empty calories that sugar alcohols give you. And after calculating for fiber and allulose, it only has 10 net carbs. 

If the snack bar has the same amount of carbs or sugar or fat that a Catalyst Bar has, the snack bar has worse nutrition, calorie for calorie.

With Catalyst Bars, you get a lot of nutrition packed in one bar.

Losing weight is a result of taking in less calories than you exert.

Changing your body composition occurs when you take in the right macronutrients.

3) Taste. Read our testimonials below and listen to what a popular health and fitness influencer thinks of Catalyst Bars.

Catalyst Bars are meal replacements. They can be your go-to breakfast, a pre-workout or post-workout meal, or perfect when you are on-the-go and don’t have time to sit down for a full meal. These are not snack bars.
They are high in protein and fiber, low in sugar and net carbs, and have zero sugar alcohols. And they taste good!

More Health Benefits

Catalyst Bars go beyond the calories and macronutrients to stand apart from other bars. They are gluten-free, non-GMO, and Keto-friendly.

Both bars provide the 9 essential amino acids your body needs every day. These must be found in the food you eat. Your body can not make them.

Peanut Butter Brownie is plant-based with a unique blend of proteins (soy-free) that gives you this. Vegans and vegetarians often struggle with choosing enough protein sources in one meal that can do this.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is powered by whey protein which also contains all 9 essential amino acids.

Other Considerations

Catalyst Bars were created with you and your lifestyle in mind.

With a 12 month shelf life, you can stock up so you are never without a go-to meal. If you prefer cold bars, they can also be refrigerated without their texture changing. 

They are delicious without needing a chocolate coating that will melt in the hot weather, or if you keep your bars in your car or in a gym bag.

For a mouthwatering treat, microwave our Peanut Butter Brownie bars for 15 – 20 seconds or air-fry them!
