No Whey Protein Bars

No Whey Protein Bars

If you are looking for a no whey protein bar then hopefully we have some great suggestions for you.

Below you will find a complete list of protein bars which do not use whey as a protein source. There will be no whey ingredients in these protein bars listed below in the table but that doesn't mean you won't find dairy or milk in them. This list has been created to show bars which don't use whey in their ingredients.

Whey is the byproduct of cheese, the liquid that remains after it has been strained is what you would call whey. It is used in protein bars and similar foods as a supplement because it is high in protein.

Even though it is high in protein which is what a lot of people would look for when trying to build lean muscle, it also has some downsides. Not everyone can consume this and some may even be allergic, may get digestive issues or other problems.

It is also a highly processed protein compared to others, it does come from dairy but it isn't found in nature.

Whatever your reasons for avoiding this protein type, at least below you can find over 100 suggestions of protein bars which have zero whey in them.

We have managed to build this table below from the food discovery tool which we have been working on since late 2018 which has over 1000 sports and outdoor food items. From that we can answer specific queries like this to help you find new favorites and foods that work with your specific requirements.

Other Forms of Protein

There are many other types and forms of protein which are used in protein bars and other high protein foods and we have added a unique column to the table which shows the protein source used in each protein bar in the list.

Other proteins to look out for:

  • peanuts
  • soy
  • brown rice
  • pea
  • almond
  • chicken
  • sunflower seed
  • hemp
  • oat
  • venison
  • cashew

This should help you narrow down and find a protein bar that would work for you based off of the protein used. As well as this there is a protein per gram column which shows you the protein density that is in each bar. With this number you can fairly compare any and all protein bars to get a better understanding of how much protein they really have in them, rather than relying on the protein per serving.

One recommendation is that you mix your protein sources as to get a better amino acid profile and then you know you're covering your requirements.

The table has been sorted to show those with the highest protein density at the top and then in a descending order.

As well as answering the question, which protein bars don't use whey as a protein source, we have added a few other columns to help you work out the best protein bar for you.

Flavor of each protein bar is shown next to the bar, so you can choose your most enjoyed flavors.

There is also a diet column, so if you are vegan, gluten free, vegetarian etc, you can choose based on the diet type the protein bar fits in to.
