WOWness rating: 6.5/7.0


As you click to read this review, you should be wondering this. There are so many protein bars and nutrition bars in the market, how and where can I get the one I need?

  • You may be taking protein bars regularly before or after exercising.

  • You may be looking for a healthier snack for yourself or your kids when you feel like eating between meals.

  • You may be watching your weight and making an adjustment to your diet.

  • You may have yet to try any protein bar so far.

In this article, we’ve identified a few important factors you should consider before buying the most suitable protein bars. Read on if you are keen to learn more.


Factor #1: The ingredients

Protein helps in muscle growth, repair and recovery, and stabilizing blood sugar levels. In particular, Soy Protein is a very healthy and powerful ingredient as compared to other forms of protein. Soy has also been found to lower cholesterol levels in men.


We have heard some “debates” going on and many gym people are concerned about whether consuming Soy Protein will affect estrogen level and decrease the growth of muscle tissue. Well, the fact is - A person has to consume a massive amount of soy protein and break the balanced ratio of the daily nutrition intake to experience the above-mentioned issue.


Many protein bars in the market also contain artificial sweeteners, cholesterol, and too much saturated fat. Each PureFit bar contains 18g of protein, it is vegan, gluten-free and 100% all natural.

Below is a comparison chart for your easy reference. PureFit protein bar may not be the prefect one but it definitely stands out and is one of the best in terms of the choice of ingredients and its nutrition facts. PureFit bars are also absolutely safe for kids. Unlike some nutrition bar manufacturers, PureFit do not fortify their nutrition bars with low quality vitamins and minerals that may case toxicity levels in small children, nor are the bars enhanced with any types of stimulants or herbs.

Factor #2: Taste & Texture

It’s so important that a protein bar tastes good so that we can enjoy eating them and eat them often. A delicious protein bar would absolutely motivate us to eat healthily!

After tasting many different brands, we found out PureFit is the one you don't get tired of even though you consume it every single day. It simply because they taste natural. You can clearly taste the freshness of the ingredients rather than any artificial flavouring. When we open a PureFit protein bar, it has a natural and fresh smell from nuts and dried fruits. It has a nice texture, it's not sticky but soft and crunchy. Taste is sweet but natural, the least sweet flavour is chocolate brownie, it tastes of mild cocoa and nuts. PureFit bars in general are ideal for people who don't like the "taste of protein". A bar you won't get tired of, you can eat again and again as a snack and meal supplement.


If you are also residing in tropical countries like Singapore you would probably resonate with what we are going to share now. Many times when we take out a protein bar from our bag and open it, the bar is somewhat melted and stuck with the packaging, and it is not easy to remove it ☹

PureFit protein bar is one of the brands in the market does not have this issue.


Furthermore, they have 7 different flavours to choose from so you won’t feel like you are eating the same thing every day. Our WOWness team has filmed an Unboxing Video for you to take a closer look at PureFit bars. Please note the flavour we presented in the video is Chocolate Brownie (my personal favourite!), other flavours such as Almond Crunch, Peanut Butter Crunch are available, we hope you find your favourite too :)

Factor #3: Affordability & Availability

There are many places you can buy a protein bar, for instance at your gym, in a supermarket, a convenience store or even an online shop. However, the prices of quality protein bars are pretty high if you buy them in retail (we are talking about real protein bars containing enough protein and not just a candy bar).

Our team did a quick market survey, getting a PureFit protein bar at Guardxxn will cost you SGD5!


It’s always good to save some money to keep up our goals, hence we would like to recommend you to purchase your protein bars online. iHerb is an international online shop offering very reasonable prices at all times (at least 30% - 40% cheaper than the normal retail shops) and they offer FREE delivery for purchases more than USD40.
