Description
They said that this protein bar couldn't be made but we finally did it.
It's healthy food that makes no compromises. Just read our ingredients and you'll see.

Quest is the first bar you can eat guilt FREE
To bring you a protein bar this healthy and delicious, we had to create a whole new process for creating bars. Quest Bars are so revolutionary, in fact, that we've filed two patents. You won't see anything else like it on the market. Quest is the first truly low carb protein bar that doesn't contain glycerin, simple carbs, uses no sugar, and is completely junk-free. That's why you can eat Quest bars everyday without feeling guilty.

Health Notes

Rice Protein

Rice Protein
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Atherosclerosis
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Though not yet proven in clinical research, animal studies suggest that rice protein-based diets result in less buildup of atherosclerotic plaque compared with animal protein-based diets. (more)
Athletic Performance
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Some athletes believe rice protein may also improve blood flow to muscle to enhance growth and repair. However, no research has investigated the effects of rice protein on athletic performance. (more)
Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Dieters who are gluten or dairy sensitive and looking to supplement protein might consider rice protein, though its actual benefits for weight loss have not been studied.(more)
Atherosclerosis
Dose: Refer to label instructionsAnimal studies suggest that rice protein-based diets result in less buildup of atherosclerotic plaque compared with animal protein-based diets.1 This effect may be due to mechanisms involving antioxidant function,2 cholesterol metabolism,3 or insulin function.4 Controlled human studies are needed to determine whether consuming rice protein can prevent or treat atherosclerotic disease.

Athletic Performance
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Compared with other protein supplements, rice protein has more of the amino acid arginine, and since arginine is a vasodilator that can enhance blood flow to tissues, some athletes believe rice protein may also improve blood flow to muscle to enhance growth and repair. However, no research has investigated the effects of rice protein on athletic performance.

Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructionsDieters who are gluten or dairy sensitive and looking to supplement protein might consider rice protein, though its actual benefits for weight loss have not been studied.

Rice protein is extracted from rice and used in some protein supplements. Vegetarians may prefer it over protein supplements made from animal sources (such as whey or casein, which are milk proteins). Since rice is rarely involved in food allergies,1 rice protein may also be preferred by people with food allergies, and may be suitable to use in hypoallergenic infant formulas.2 Rice protein is not a complete protein, however, due to insufficient levels of the amino acids lysine and threonine.3, 4 Therefore, these amino acids are often added to rice protein products to correct this imbalance.

        Comments about QUEST NUTRITION Quest Protein Bar – Banana Nut Muffin:

        I love Quest bars.I have to say this one was very bland to me. It really didn't have a taste of bananas, but smelt like it. It was also gritty. It wasnt horrible, but not the best of quest. Cinnamon roll is probably my #1 next to pb&j.

          These bars are some of the best nutritional value you can find, especially for being free of artificial sweeteners.

          They also taste great. I'm a huge fan of Quest Natural bars, the only con is they are more expensive than others.

            These are absolutely amazing baked - I bake in the toaster oven for 5 minutes at 350, then top with a bit of sweetened fat-free cream cheeze for a totally guilt-free cinnamon roll that is delicius! Although they are very chewy straight out of the wrapper, baking them makes them wonderfully soft.

                  Meh... it's ok... It taste like someone making banana bread and instead of using real bananas, they used banana extract instead. Not terrible but just not the same. Probably the closest and healthiest banana muffin/ bread you'll ever eat.

                          I really like the natural line of quest bars (without sucralose). Have tried them all except the strawberry cheesecake and I like them all. I love banana anything (even candies) but for those worried about the taste, it is not funky banana. If you like dried bananas/ banana things, it is worth a try. Very soft and will buy again.

                            Wow! I absolutely love these. They are one of my favorite flavors (Mixed Berry Bliss being my all-time favorite) I think it is amazing that so many people rave about the cookie dough & brownie flavors, IMO they are too sweet & kind of one-note. The banana nut are so delicious, although i did notice that they changed the formula a bit. i prefer the older ones that had a slightly higher calorie count than the new formula (i don't have an old wrapper so i'm not sure exactly what they changed, but i think they had a different type of sweetener in them)
