Muscle Up is a functional food brand that proudly promotes itself being the makers of the first-ever sweet potato protein bar. The brand prides itself on its ingredients, promising that every bar contains two to three times more protein than sugar, is made with grass-fed whey to give it that high amount of protein and, of course, sweet potato.
Currently, Muscle Up’s lineup consists of three protein bars, two of which are made with whey, as mentioned above. They are separated by their flavors and a few ingredients with Peanut Butter & Cacao Nibs, and Cacao & Vanilla. The former is made with peanut butter, while the latter is not, although their nutrition profiles are not too different.
Each of Muscle Up’s whey powered bars provides 15g of protein, 26 to 31g of carbohydrates with 7 to 8g of that sugar, 8 to 10g of fat, for the same amount of calories at 230.
As for Muscle Up’s third protein snack, that’s not made with whey; it is a collagen-based bar, available in a Double Chocolate Espresso flavor. This one is made with cashew butter, organic cocoa, sweet potato, and espresso beans, and provides a similar set of macros as the others with 18g of protein, 23g of carbs, 5g of sugar, 11g of fat, and 230 calories.
