Pros

GFB Gluten-Free Protein Bites offer a wide assortment of mouthwatering flavors. Alongside delicious taste comes excellent quality that makes these bites very decadent. They are practical and easy to carry. You can simply keep the resealable bag of GFB Protein Bites in your purse or throw it in your gym bag in the morning and have a satisfying snack when you are feeling famished. This product contains simple yet healthy ingredients, and there are absolutely no GMOs, artificial flavors, coloring, or preservatives added in these tasty bites. These snacks are full of plant-based protein and other nutritious vitamins. They are 100% organic and thus are the perfect choice for those who are on a vegan diet. These snacks are also perfect for those who have digestive issues, as this product is free of lactose, trans fats, cholesterol, and gluten.

Cons

Although these snacks are delicious and nutritious, the ingredients list can cause some to be a bit wary about purchasing them. GFB Protein Bites are advertised as "protein packed." However, they have only four grams of protein per serving, which isn’t a lot. The other ingredient that might raise a few eyebrows is the brown rice syrup, as it has a glycemic index of 98, higher than table sugar. This is not necessarily a downside, as this snack does have some healthy fats and protein that can slow down carb absorption and provide a more steady source of energy. This slow release of energy can be great for fueling a workout. Thus, the manufacturers have tried to combat the excessive glycemic index by including proteins to nullify the potential adverse effects.

Bottom Line

You might be wondering whether these protein bites are a good option for the price, considering they are a snack. But remember that this snack offers a convenient and safe source of good nutrition in a ready-to-eat form. Although you can make a similar variation of these protein bites at home, and perhaps modify them as you like to potentially avoid ingredients like brown rice syrup and cane sugar, these bites are definitely a good nutritious snack. Also, they are very tasty.

Non-GMO Foods are Healthier

Before purchasing any product, make sure that the product is non-GMO. Many consumers are unaware of the potential health implications of GMO foods, and thus they buy products without making sure whether or not a product is free from any type of genetic modification. If you don’t carefully read product packaging, you might end up consuming products that are being made with GMO crops.

According to the FDA, some of the ingredients that might be produced through GMO crops include cornstarch, corn syrup, corn oil, soybean oil, canola oil, and granulated sugar. So, any product containing these requires further examination. Hence, before buying anything, make sure it does not use any GMO-sourced ingredients.

This might seem like a tedious process, but this practice can help improve your long-term health. Another important factor to consider before buying a product is to check if it uses organic ingredients. If a product says it is organic, this means that its ingredients have not been exposed to radiation damage, synthetic substances, or certain pesticides.  

It’s important to educate yourself about what these terms actually mean, as companies may use complicated terminology to hide harmful ingredients in their products from customers. Familiarize yourself with organic label standards and common organic ingredients. By doing this, you can differentiate between safe and unsafe products and look beyond the flashy packaging to see a product for what it truly offers.

Healthy Vegan Snacks That You Can Make Yourself

Finding healthy snacks can be a very challenging task, especially when you are on a vegan diet. There aren’t enough tasty options available in the market for vegans.  A vegan diet focuses on whole plant foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds. This diet doesn’t easily lend itself to prepackaged foods, so, as a vegan, you have to make a lot of effort to find a quick snack option that is healthy as well as tasty.

Buying ready-made snacks from the store is very convenient, but you can also make your own vegan snacks at home. Making snacks at home is great because you can easily replace certain ingredients with healthier alternatives, or modify the recipe as you like. It’s also a lot of fun experimenting and trying out different ingredient combinations to come up with your unique snack versions. You can even make low-sugar protein bars and overnight oats at home using only vegan ingredients.
