Quest Protein bar - Quest Nutrition - Nitrogen analysis + carbs, sugars and fat by Supplementlabtest.com
The following test on Quest protein Bar from Quest Nutrition has been requested by our site Supplementlabtest.com and is therefore an independent test. The product has been ordered at a webshop and delivered directly to the laboratory Nutricontrol.
By use of the nitrogen analysis a protein content of 34,8% has been measured. This represents a deviation of +5,5% compared to the specified percentage of 33% on the label. Total carbohydrates are 26,1 g/100g, +53,5% higher than the 17 g/100g stated on the label, but the sugar content is 1,4 g/100g compared with the 2 g/100g stated and gives a difference of -42,9%. The fat content is 7,7 g/100g compared with 11 g/100g on the label, this gives a difference of -30%. Total calories per 100 grams is 325 kcal while 309 kcal is stated. Dietary fiber content is 5,3 g/100g against the stated 23 g/100g, but this could be because the added corn fibers are not measured in the test.
