- Bar shape
- Nutritional content
- Fat content
- Shelf life
The texture of the bar is one of the three most important factors of a protein bar. The texture can be moist, grainy, dry, chewy soft, sticky, etc. This depends on:
- What type of protein is added.
- Additional ingredients added for taste or decorative purposes.
- And how these contents are processed and mixed.
The next key factor to a good protein bar is the actual functional protein in the bar.
The third most important factor is the shelf life of the protein bar. Here one has to pay attention to the hardening of the protein bar with time, the retention of the shape of the bar at various temperatures, the formation of mold due to the presence of water content and browning of the bar.
Once a person takes care of all the issues that may occur in the protein bar while its storage or consumption, he gets a successful protein bar in the market.
