In this day and age we are far too busy and have little time to treat our bodies the way we should. We get it! You have loads of responsibilities. Maybe you’re a busy parent taxiing your kids around to school, friends houses, or soccer practice. Or, maybe you’re an entrepreneur starting a company of your own from the ground up. You have little free time to think about a balanced diet and eating the best things possible to optimize your health. That’s where NEOH comes in:
Meet NEOH! NEOH CrossBar is a new category of snack bar on the market. It’s got candy bar-like flavor and it’s packed full of protein and nourishing all-natural ingredients. Hence, why it is called the CrossBar.
This is the world’s first ever cross between a candy bar and a protein bar. The CrossBar is a 90 calorie bar that contains only 1g of sugar and 2 net carbs. It’s also loaded with five different forms of protein including cocoa, collagen, pea, soy and whey proteins. Whey and soy protein have been proven to reduce cholesterol, blood pressure and inflammation while building muscle. Pea protein also works to aid in muscle growth while combating heart disease. So the next time you start to feel your blood pressure rising at work due to stress, maybe reach for a CrossBar. Both your heart and your tastebuds will thank you!
This delicious snack bar will not only satisfy your sweet tooth, but will also leave you feeling fuller longer. It makes a great snack on the go and can serve as a fantastic option for your post-workout snack, as the 8g of protein will continue to fuel your muscles long after you finish your workout. The CrossBar is so delicious that you might even have to fight your kids for them. And the thing is, unlike candy bars and other sugary treats NEOH CrossBars are a way healthier option for kids since they only contain 1g of sugar. Not convinced? Well, I’ve got some extra mouth-watering recipes using NEOH snack bars that I’ve left for you at the end of this article 😉
You might be thinking, ‘why would I feed my kid a protein bar in the first place?’ And that’s a perfectly valid question. As mentioned, unlike normal protein bars the CrossBar is a hybrid between a protein bar and a snack bar and so it’s not loaded with carbs or sugars making it a simple and healthy snack they can take with them to school or to soccer practice. And the beauty of these bars? They’re GMO free, gluten free, nut free and they’re not even sweetened with regular sugars or even aspartame for that matter.
The CrossBar was specifically formulated to feel, look and taste like a chocolate bar. The creator was determined on making something that would sooth his craving for sweet but also fuel his body at the same time. Normal sugary snack bars just don’t do that. They may give you a quick sugar high, but you will start to feel yourself quickly plummet when your blood sugars dip back down. These kinds of sugary treats will only leave you feeling tired and foggy. The CrossBar on the other hand is sweetened with a combination of all natural sweeteners occurring in nature. The sweetener ingredients include maltitol, xylitol and erythritol.
The first sweetener used is maltitol which is almost like a carbon copy of sugar. It shares nearly all of the same properties, however it has half the calories and will not affect blood sugars as regular sugars do. It also prevents tooth decay while regular sugars will often cause it.
The second sweetener ingredient is erythritol which is found naturally occurring in fruit and vegetables. More specifically it’s found in grapes and pears. It’s about 60-80% sweeter than normal sugar but like maltitol it contains only half the calories and does not affect blood sugars. Since it is a natural sugar it’s also safe for your teeth.
The third sweetening ingredient used is another natural sweetener called xylitol. Xylitol is derived from fruits and vegetables and can specifically be found in berries, mushrooms and even oats. It’s just as sweet as sugar, however unlike normal sugars xylitol has been proven to repair demineralized layers of tooth enamel, effectively promoting tooth health. When have you ever heard of a snack bar being good for your teeth? Even better reason to let your kid eat a CrossBar!
