Genuine Health Fermented Vegan Protein + Bars

Genuine Health is committed to creating all-natural products that help your body perform it’s absolute best and stay it’s healthiest.  The Canadian-based company developed the fermented vegan proteins+ bars to provide a healthy protein bar that adds the benefits of fermentation. Great for gut health and immune support, these bars offer the most complete absorption of protein and nutrients available.

All Four Yummy Flavors!

Great for gut health and immune support, these bars offer the most complete absorption of protein and nutrients available.

What is Fermentation and Why Is It Good?

Fermentation is a natural metabolic practice that converts a carbohydrate, (i.e. sugar), into an alcohol or an acid. This can be done with yeast or bacteria. Now, that may sound scary, but there are a lot of reasons we need good bacteria. In fact, we have it in our systems already! This process basically breaks down all the protective barriers around nutrients that can make them difficult for our body to absorb. Our body does this on its own to a certain extent, but can only process so much before the stuff in our stomachs must move on.

Eating or drinking fermented nutritional products allows our body to better absorb all the nutrients available since it has been fermented already and those barriers are already broken down. Genuine Health calls this “bioavailability” and tries to ensure the best “bioavailability” in all of their products. This means you get the biggest nutritional punch in the smallest of bites.

Fermented Vegan Proteins+ Bars

All of the Genuine Health Fermented Vegan Protein+ Bars come 12 to box and are gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, and vegan. I love that they have 14-15g of protein per bar with no bloating side-effects. Eating these bars promotes overall gut health and supports your immune system by guaranteeing the maximum amount of nutrient absorption. These bars come in four flavors:

  • Great for gut health and immune support, these bars offer the most complete absorption of protein and nutrients available.Dark Chocolate Almond: This dark chocolate is dark! And truly delicious! I love chocolate and this really helps me feed my chocolate cravings in a healthier way. One bar is 210 calories, 9g fat, 26 net carbs, and 14g of protein. You also get 6% of your daily value of Vitamin C, 6% Calcium, and 15% iron.  I love this chocolate bar with chocolate chips and almond slivers. It does contain almonds and coconut. While the chips and puffed rice do contain some sugar, the bar itself is sweetened with organic agave syrup. I found that this bar really hits the spot when I’m craving any sweets.

 

  • Double Chocolate Chip:Genuine Health Fermented Vegan Proteins+ MORE chocolate goodness! Similar to the Dark Chocolate Almond, it is a chocolate bar with chocolate chips. Though this is more of a milk chocolate versus dark chocolate flavor. I found it a bit drier in texture overall, though it is suitably sweet. You get the same amount of calories, fat, and carbs with this bar but you get 15g of protein. You also get 40% of your Vitamin C, 8% of your Calcium, and 20% of your iron. It does warn that it also contains tree nuts. These bars also add chia seeds for a boost of Omega-3s.

 

  • Lemon Coconut: Genuine Health Fermented Vegan Proteins+Okay, I’m all about the chocolate, but this bar surprised me. I LOVE it! It tastes like a yummy lemon bar with just enough coconut on top to flavor it. It is yummy and has a good balance of gooiness and dryness. It’s not “moist” but it is a very nice texture. This bar flavor has only 15 net carbs and 14g of protein. You get 4% Vitamin C, 6% Calcium, and 10% iron.  This bar is sweet but refreshing. It contains almond and obviously coconut as well.

 

  • Peanut Butter Chocolate: Genuine Health Fermented Vegan Proteins+What goes better together than chocolate and peanut butter? Admittedly, this bar is a bit drier too, and while the peanut butter flavor is strong, the chocolate chips just don’t offer enough chocolate flavor to balance it. It is yummy as a peanut butter flavor though. Those with tree nut allergies can eat this bar so long as they are fine with peanuts. This bar contains 220 calories, 8g of fat, and 20 net carbs. It has 15g of protein and a whopping 30% value of Vitamin C. It also has 4% Calcium and 2% iron.

Great for On the Go

Genuine Health Fermented Vegan Proteins+

I love that I can pack these in my purse or gym bag and have a healthy snack ready to go. I plan on bringing them on hikes for a great protein boost. While a couple of the flavors are a bit dry, the delicious flavors make up for it. I do not feel like I’m eating a chewy department store protein bar tasting of cardboard. Genuine Health Fermented Vegan Protein+ Bars are filling and delicious! Plus they are great for just about anyone with their vegan formula.

  1. I would really like to try the lemon coconut bar because it does sound good. These could make a quick healthy choice on busy days.

  2. I’ve read that fermented food is good for you for a variety of reasons. My problem…every fermented food I’ve tasted, I didn’t like at all. So this seems like a good answer to that problem. Since I’ve never tried it in a sweetened protein bar before, it’s worth trying. As long as they taste good and offer protein, I’m in.

  4. I have never heard the term bioavailability before but it makes sense that products like Genuine Health’s vegan Protein bars allow our bodies to better absorb all of their nutrients since they are already a fermented product. I’m impressed with 14-15 mg protein in each bar and that the Dark Chocolate Almond bar has 15% iron in it! These bars sound as tasty as they are healthy. A great way for this Vegan to eat a yummy snack on the go or at home without feeling guilty one bit. Thanks for the review!

  14. I am always looking for good snack options on the go. Health is important to me, and I need to snack every 3 to 4 hours due to hypoglycemia. A lot of snacks that are easy to carry for in a pinch are very unhealthy. These look like they would be a perfect healthy option . Thanks for the helpful review.

  19. I had been hearing a lot lately about how fermented foods are good for us and our digestive health but your review has helped me understand a bit better as to HOW, so thanks for that.
    I love that these come in 4 diferent flavors and are high protein. I always feel better when I eat higher protein I have noticed.
    I originally asumed I would like the Peanut Butter Chocolate the best but since reading your review and seeing the photos, now you have me craving the Lemon Coconut haha.
    My young adult son has suffered terribly for years with major digestive issues and the poor thing has often said he feels like he can’t eat anything. I can’t help but wonder if these might be something he CAN eat and that may even be beneficial for him.
