Zing Bars Review


I enjoy having nutritious snacks in the house so when I want something to snack on I have something healthy to grab out of the cupboard. I found Zing Bars and definitely have been enjoying them as a snack. My favorites are the Chocolate Peanut Butter and Chocolate Coconut flavors. They are both super yummy. These would make great stocking stuffers for a health nut or just someone who enjoys healthy and super yummy snacks.

The Science of ZingCreated by Nutritionists
Zing is the only “Nutrition” bar created, owned and operated by nutritionists. The four founders of the company are registered dietitians, each with a master’s degree in nutritional biochemistry and over 40 years of combined clinical experience. As Sandi puts it, “We created Zing Bars as a healthy snack for our patients. We needed a bar that would be satisfying and sustaining with well-balanced, all-natural ingredients. And if we actually expected patients to eat this bar, it had to be delicious.” Zing was created as a bar that’s great for ages 1-101.

Excellent Source of Protein
Each Zing Bar contains between 10-13g protein, or 20%-24% of each bar. That’s the same proportion we counsel our patients to eat. Protein boosts metabolism, helps stabilize blood sugar and builds tissue. Too little and you don’t get these benefits; too much and you put extra burden on the kidneys and leach calcium from your bones. Zing provides high-quality protein in the amount your body needs.

Optimal Balance of Carbohydrates, Protein and Fat
Each Zing Bar features a balance of high quality protein, fiber-rich carbs and heart healthy fats…all in an ideal ratio for sustained energy. Nutritionally balanced foods like Zing Bars transcend fad diets. For example, some nutrition bars minimize or eliminate entire macronutrient groups like carbohydrates or fat. Our bodies actually need these nutrients to function properly and they are best eaten together. Protein and fat slow the absorption of glucose (from carbs) into our bloodstream, providing for stabilized blood sugar, moods and energy throughout the day. Each Zing Bar contains at least 3g fiber, which further aids in blood sugar stabilization and promotes satiety.

We created a bar with the nutrients your body needs in amounts that nature intended. Zing Bars are a convenient addition to any meal plan that promotes long-lasting health, energy and vitality.

Gluten and Wheat-Free
All Zing Bars are wheat free & gluten free. Using the ELISA method, we routinely test each flavor for gluten (and the gliadin subfraction) at an independent laboratory. All Zing flavors test below 5ppm gliadin and 10 ppm gluten, which is the lowest amount detectible with current technology.

Wheat intolerance, gluten intolerance & celiac disease are some of the most common food intolerances in the US and Europe. Gluten grains include wheat, barley, rye, spelt, kamut and triticale.

Many informed individuals are increasingly interested in finding healthy wheat & gluten-free snacks. However, few prepared gluten-free foods taste good and most are of poor nutritional quality. Zing is turning the tide on this tasteless trend.

100% Natural, Quality Ingredients
All Zing Bars are made from hormone-free, antibiotic-free ingredients and contain nothing artificial. This means no high-fructose corn syrup and no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or chemical preservatives of any kind. A wholesome choice for adults and kids!

Soy-Protein Free
We have chosen not to use soy protein for a number of reasons.
1. To make protein isolate from soy beans requires extensive processing. There are many side effects to this processing, the worst of which is the formation of a toxic chemical called lysinoalanine and a carcinogen known as nitrite.[i]
2. In addition, the high heat required in the processing de-natures the protein to such an extent as to make it largely ineffective.[ii]
3. 91% of soy grown in America is genetically modified (GMO). GMO soy products alter the makeup of the plant seeds, can create unrecognizable proteins (leading to sensitivities), and may have destructive consequences on our agricultural landscape and food supply.[iii]
4. Soy is also loaded with many “anti-nutrients” like trypsin inhibiters that block protein digestion and phytic acid which blocks mineral absorption. Though these can be reduced during processing, not all can be removed and studies show that trypsin inhibiter content in soy protein isolate can vary as much as five fold.[iv]
5. Soy is a common food allergen. Many of our patients have an intolerance to soy protein, experiencing digestive upset, gas, eczema and skin irritation when eating soy. Of note, this intolerance can be created with an excess intake of soy products due to the factors mentioned above.
6. The benefit of soy protein is that it’s very inexpensive. We don’t feel the economic/health trade off is worth it.

As clinical nutritionists, we recommend fermented soy foods like miso, tempeh and natto. The fermentation process deactivates the trypsin inhibiters, converts minerals into a more absorbable form, and actually increases the amount of B vitamins. More importantly, fermentation creates substances that fight cancer, reduce cholesterol and inhibit the progression of atherosclerosis.
