Best Energy Bars

Sugar And Sweetener Types Used In Energy Bars

Below we have created a graph showing the most used sugar and sweeteners in energy bars. There are many different types of sweetener and sugars used and this bar graph indicates how many of each sugar type is used in our entire database of energy bars.

As well as sugars from plants, there are artificial sweeteners used and we have also tagged each energy bar when they have no added sugar and only naturally present sugars in their ingredients. You will find energy bars with no added sugar when they use a lot of fruit ingredients, which gives the energy bar a more natural taste.

It's important you find out which sugars and sweeteners are best for you and your diet. Some sweeteners do not work well for some people, whilst they may be fine to consume for others.

Sugar taste is also subjective, so finding one that you may enjoy will help to finding the best energy bar for you.

Brown rice syrup seems to be prevalent in a lot of energy bars, followed by those with naturally present and no added sugar. Other noticeable sugar types used in energy bars are tapioca syrup, agave and stevia. As we add more energy bars to the database, we will get a better view of what sugar types are used in the energy bar manufacturing process.
