Protein bars are a popular protein supplement here in the UK and throughout the world. Various brands are available – but obviously, we think our new and improved Oatein Hype Bar is the best protein bar in the UK. Our main reasoning behind this is all down to our favourite ingredient: oats.

Protein. We all want it; we all need it. Our muscles, especially. Protein is a macronutrient that fuels the body’s ability to replenish worn muscle fibre – increasing the density and size of the muscles as a result. Eating protein isn’t just for gym-goers, however. It’s beneficial for everyone, thanks to the amino acids that make up protein.
