What protein bar has the most protein?   

What protein bar has the most protein?

When we say best high protein, we are talking about the bar with the most protein in it.

The list also includes the bar size, flavour and calories in it.

(Obviously the bigger size bars can have more potential protein in it, depending on the manufactures formula.)

Please Note: Some values are approximate. Some companies might round up their numbers. As an example a company might say their bar has 20 grams of protein in it, while it may be actually 19.7 grams of protein in it.
