One thing you’ll notice is that the business of sports nutrition is changing rapidly. New prodcuts are being introduced almost everyday and sometimes its hard to keep updated. We try to provide you the most current information. This Vega Sport Chocolate Saviseed protein bar review shows how fast things are changing. Although we just recently picked up the bar at a retail store its currently not available for sale from the myvega website.
Vega has a special niche in the sports nutrition marketplace in that all there products are plant based. The company is based on the ideas that you would see from The Thrive Diet books. For anyone who is vegetarian the Thrive Diet offers plenty of information for athletes.
Because of the combination of different products this bar has different flavors. You can taste the sweetness from the grape juice instead of the usual barley malt used in other energy bars. The protein inthe bar comes from brown rice and peas so you don’t have that dryness associated with whey powder. The dark chocolate coating is nice but it does stop you from carrying this bar around in your cycling jersey pocket on a hot day.
For anyone who wants to try a different protein bar the Vega protein line is nice change. The retail price on the bars can have a wide range with some retail shops selling bars close to $4.00.
