In the coming weeks, fitness trainer Sharon Chamberlin and her brand Catalyst 4 Fitness are coming out with their first-ever product, although, unlike most newcomers, it’s not a pre-workout. Chamberlin’s Catalyst 4 Fitness is hitting the functional side of the industry with an on-the-go protein-packed bar, designed and described as a “true meal replacement bar”.
The self-titled Catalyst Meal Replacement Bar isn’t an energy or typical protein snack but a clean, nutritious, and balanced meal bar that is also completely plant-based and vegan-friendly. Each rather large 85g bar has a solid 17g of protein from a blend of pumpkin, flax, and sunflower protein, 15g of fat, and 42g of carbohydrates with only a gram of that sugar, 18g fiber and 10g net carbs, all coming to a total calorie count of 280.
Other key ingredients included in the build of the debut product from Catalyst 4 Fitness are peanut butter, crunchy peanuts, chocolate chips, the sugar substitute allulose, coconut oil, and a fair amount of tapioca fiber. With peanut butter and chocolate chips in the Catalyst Meal Replacement Bar, the flavor it’s launching in won’t be too much of a surprise in Peanut Butter Brownie.
To start, the Catalyst Meal Replacement Bar from Sharon Chamberlin and Catalyst 4 Fitness is only going to be available through the brand’s online store, where it is currently counting down to the launch of the bar. We’re unsure how much it will cost, although we expect it to be around the same as its many competitors, and it is coming in boxes of nine bars, not the usual 12.
