Snack of choice: MRE Bars. MRE Bars complete the incredible MRE family that RedCon1 have created - a range of real, whole food products that are designed to provide premium and nutrient dense sources of food that are quick, convenient and healthy as anything. The role MRE Bars play - the snacks and dessert role. The best part, if you ask us. MRE Bars are a protein bar like no other not just in the way that they completely wholefood, and therefore are higher in quality and nutrients, but that they don't go chewy, they don't go hard, they aren't hard to digest, and they aren't chocked full of sugar alcohols. If that doesn't sell you we don't know what will, but just trust us when we say that MRE Bars are as good as protein bars can get.
- Innovative bar, made exclusively from real whole foods - Replicates a balanced meal, combining proteins, complex carbs and healthy fats - Genuinely tastes incredible - Incredible texture and consistency that puts all former protein bars to shame
Never have we tasted something so drool worthy. Get ready to give up ice cream and cookies for good legend, because MRE is about to take over. Delicious and nutritious, MRE Bars are a snack that outweighs every other in so many ways. Firstly, you get real, whole foods. All the good stuff, none of the rest. Secondly, they're soft, decadent and easy to digest- finally a protein bar you'll actually enjoy eating. And finally - the flavours! We know you'll soon be in love and coming back for more.
MRE Bars are completely unique in their sources, creating a product that is made from genuinely real food. The protein within MRE Bars is derived from Beef Bovine Protein Isolate, Salmon Protein, Chicken Protein, Egg Albumin, Brown Rice Protein, Pea Protein and Soy Protein Isolate. This combines both meat and plant-based sources of protein to make up a total 20g of protein within each individual MRE bar. Carbohydrates are sourced from Rolled Oats, Dehydrated Yam, Dehydrated Sweet Potato, Coconut Water Powder, Dehydrated Blueberry Fruit and Dehydrated Goji Berry Fruit. This combines both simple and complex carbohydrates from a number of sources to provide a unique and holistic mix of micronutrients, to form a total of 29g of carbohydrates per bar - of which only 3g are fibre and 6g are sugar! Finally, 9g of fats are sourced from natural healthy fats, such as MCT Oils and almonds! All in all, we believe this is a truly impressive macronutrient breakdown.
This ingredients list, as well as the huge range of stuff that RedCon1 very specifically left out too, is what makes MRE Bars ultra digestible too. It's certainly a common commodity that protein bars can cause a ton of not so pleasant effects on the body and stomach - from an upset stomach, to causing cramping, digestive discomfort and unwanted gas. This tends to come fault of sky rocketed fibre levels, excessive sugar alcohol content, or just a long list of artificial ingredients you can't even pronounce. MRE Bars contain none of these ingredients, and thus, produce none of those symptoms either. As well all know - happy tummy means a happy human.
Perhaps what we love most about the MRE Bars however, is the texture and taste. Just as MRE Bars are made from real food, they look like real food, taste like real food and chew like real food too. This means a soft and enjoyable bar that makes your tastebuds just as happy. MRE Bars come in a truly impressive range of flavours, and we must admit, RedCon1 nailed pretty much every flavour to be exactly what we wished for and expected. The range includes: Sprinkled Doughnut, Iced Carrot Cake, Banana Nut Bread, Crunchy Peanut Butter Cup, Blueberry Cobbler, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, German Chocolate Cake and S'mores.
