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.

Energy Bars With Eco Compostable Packaging

Here is a growing list of energy bars with eco packaging, each wrapper of the bars are completely compostable and will biodegrade in a much shorter amount of time.

Lucho Dillitos is one of these energy bar brands with an eco packaging:

"Biodegradable leaf wrapping, Unique leaf packaging means you can dispose of it and leave no footprint"

Another company striving for better is Snact:

"We’re proud that our snacks are packed in plastic free home compostable packaging. The innovative film is just as durable and impermeable as ordinary plastic packaging, but unlike other commonly used materials on the market, it biologically decomposes in a home composter (an ordinary compost heap or your local council’s food waste collection) and returns to the natural cycle, behaving just like an orange or banana peel."

Tribe also have compostable wrapper energy bars, having researched and released their energy bar range in mid 2018.

"But we've always wrapped our products in plastic, as we didn't know another way. We want to protect the Nature we train in, and we began exploring alternatives to plastic in 2017. We have spent literally months searching for the most environmentally-friendly alternatives to plastic that were viable. We did a first trial of home compostable films in January and a second in March. We've just produced a beta production run in home compostable packaging: our Cacao + Orange Bar, which will be on sale from our site from July."

Remember not to throw your rubbish on to the ground just because they are compostable, the main aim of these wrappers is that they aren't contributing to the masses of plastic.

As we add more and more energy bars to the database, hopefully we can find and add new progressive energy bars to the website who are trying to help the world and our plastic problems.
