Plenny Bar

Plenny Bar is our first 100% vegan bar, it is a ready-to-use meal that provides everything your body needs. Each bar, just as a Plenny Shake portion, contains 400 kcal and fills you up with all the macro- (fats, carbs, and protein) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) your body requires to function properly. At this point you are probably wondering what is inside the bar, so let's go step by step. 

The Plenny Bar is ingredient-wise comparable to the Plenny Shake, the product has a base of oats with soy, flaxseed and sunflower oil. Every Plenny Bar is exactly 400 kcal to which 36% comes from fats, 39% from carbohydrates and 20% from protein.

    As you can see, the first ingredients account to your main sources of energy: carbohydrates. Carbohydrates such as maltodextrin provide you a faster boost of energy compared to higher in fiber carbohydrates such as oats and chicory fiber. 


    Carbohydrates that are eaten with fiber, protein, and/or fat cause a slow, steady rise in blood sugar. Quite nice don’t you think? Besides causing slower digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, fiber, protein, and fat help you stay full for longer and prevent large rises or drops in blood sugar. [1] 


    The Plenny Bar contains 16g of fat per bar which mainly consists of unsaturated fats due to the fact that the main source of fats in the Plenny Bar is sunflower oil, followed by soy and brown flaxseed. For the case of protein, we decided to use different forms of soy since it’s so tasty, healthy and contains a complete amino acid profile that will keep your body strong and happy. Each bar provides you with 20g of protein and for this we use soy because it has the best amino acid adjusted absorption rate, you can read more on soy here. 


    Plenny Bar is high in fiber! Every bar accounts to 8g of fiber mainly coming from oats and chicory fiber which increase satiety, control your digestion and improve the health of your gut bacteria, you can read all about it here.


    Apart from all the macronutrients, we also looked after the little nutrients essential for your body’s functions and development. We added optimal amounts of all the vitamins and minerals the European Food Safety Authority established as necessary to consume on a daily basis. [2] Every Plenny Bar provides you 20% of your daily needs of these micronutrients, which play an important role in most of the processes happening in your body, such as cellular functions, neurotransmission, fluid balance and tissue structure [3].
