High-quality protein, high protein and low sugar contents are three major trends favoured by active consumers who are increasingly mindful of what they eat. 

  • One-in-three bar eaters mentioned "Source of protein" as a key driver of bar choice.1
  • 43% purchase bars based on sugar content. It is now the 2nd most important purchase driver after protein.1
  • 67% of consumers consider the pure, natural and complete benefits of whey protein isolates.2

However, delivering a high-quality low sugar bar with good taste and texture can often be complicated for bar manufacturers.

NZMP SureProtein™ ShortBar 825

SureProteinTM ShortBar 825 has been specially designed for protein bars.


This texture-breaking ingredient is typically used at low levels, in conjunction with other ingredients such as SureProteinTM FlexBar, SureProteinTM OptiBar 892, SureProteinTM OptiBar 895, to optimise bar texture, including enabling all-whey solutions by countering chewiness where Calcium Caseinate would have been used in the past.
