What Are Oh Yeah Bars?
Oh Yeah Nutrition is a sports supplement and food company that seeks to provide quality sports nutrition products at a reasonable cost. They specialize in providing supplements rich in protein. These supplements are distributed across their major lines: protein bars, shakes, shake powders and vitamins.
Oh Yeah Nutrition supplements are certified by NSF International. NSF International was founded as the National Sanitation Foundation in 1944. Their mission was to investigate production environments for sanitary conditions. More recently, they have focused on investigating ingredients in eatable products manufacturing for validation and accuracy.
This focus developed into a methodology for evaluating products for athletic appropriateness. When they validate through independent investigation and testing that a product contains no banned substances and will not cause an athlete to fail drug testing, they issue a stamp supporting that data.
Though the protein bars do not qualify for evaluation because they are a food, all other products are all NSF certified. This means that there is nothing in them that could cause an athlete to fail or have questionable results in a drug screening. Oh Yeah Nutrition's protein bars are also free of any ingredients prohibited by athletic organizations.
Oh Yeah produces three categories of protein bars. Oh Yeah One Bars weigh 60 grams each, are gluten-free, have one gram of sugar and either 21 or 22 grams of protein and 210-230 calories.
The Victory Bars weigh 65 grams each, are gluten free, Non-GMO, and especially designed to be low carbohydrates, having 8-11 grams of carbohydrates each.
OhYeah! Original Bars weigh 85 grams each, are gluten-free, have no trans fat, high protein at about 21-28 grams, have low carbohydrates at about 10-14 grams and higher calories per bar at 350-380. They also offer bars in a smaller size designed as snacks. These Good Grab bars weigh 45 grams each, are gluten-free, have 6-13 grams of carbohydrates, 13-15 grams of protein and 180-190 calories. They are small versions of the Victory bar.
OhYeah One Bars are gluten-free protein bars. Each OhYeah One bar contains one gram of sugar and either 21 or 22 grams of protein. Oh Yeah Nutrition seeks to minimize sugars while packing each bar with as much protein as they can. OhYeah One bars are offered in a variety of flavors and sizes, from single bars to boxes containing as many as 36 bars. The OhYeah One Bar, named for the single sugar in the bar, is available in these flavors: Almond Bliss, Chocolate Brownie, Cookies and Cream, Lemon Cake, Mint Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Pie, White Chocolate Raspberry, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and Birthday Cake. Each contains only one sugar and either 21 or 22 grams of protein in the standard size.
Victory Bar come in all natural flavors with all natural ingredients. The flavors are: Vanilla Almond Crunch, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Cookies and Cream, Peanut Butter Chip, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and Oatmeal Raisin Cookie.
Original Bars are generally higher in protein at approximately 27 grams, have no trans fats but also have higher sugar and calories. They are offered in Chocolate and Caramel, Chocolate, Caramel and Candies, Almond Fudge Brownie, Peanut Butter and Caramel, Creamy Vanilla and Caramel, Vanilla Toffee Fudge, Cookie Caramel Crunch, Peanut Butter and Strawberry, and Peanut Butter Crunch.
Good Grab Bars, which are approximately half the size of the full bars, are intended as snacks. The standard bars can be used as meal substitutes. The Good Grab bar come in the following flavors: Almond Fudge Brownie, Peanut Butter Crunch, Chocolate and Caramel, Chocolate, Caramel and Candies, Vanilla Toffee Fudge, Cookie Caramel Crunch and Peanut Butter and Caramel.
OhYeah! One Bar and OhYeah! Victory Bar have particularly high amounts of fiber. Including large amounts of fiber helps people feel more full which suppresses the appetite. This is an excellent attribute for bodybuilders and dieters. The high fiber percentage makes you feel more full after eating a bar. This helps you to resist snacks between meals and helps your body process the protein you have ingested.
The company was founded on the principle that nutrition and good taste are entirely compatible. Oh Yeah Nutrition creates a line of nutritional supplements and foods designed to assist you to reach your athletic goals. Protein is the theme that runs through all their products, in shake or bar form, the product line supports athletic improvement and achievement.
How do Oh Yeah Bars Work?
Oh Yeah bars are protein-packed meals. The Oh Yeah protein bars help you in a variety of ways. If you want to build muscle, protein bars provide a good, compact source of protein. So after you exercise, if you eat one of the protein bars, you are providing your body with an immediately available source of protein for muscle building and other bodily needs; this is considered the ideal time to take protein bars for increasing muscle.
Used following exercise to build muscle, protein bars are intended to substitute for a meal or substantial snack. Look at the ingredients on the labels. You can see that the bars contain sufficient calories and protein as a standard meal.
To assist in weight loss, the protein bars are also effective. By substituting a protein bar for one meal per day, you execute portion control, provide adequate protein and feel full for some time. As long as you are not adding useless calories along with the protein bar and maintain a good, reducing diet, it should be a useful tool in your fight against superfluous weight.

The protein bars are packed full of advantages. The first is certainly that amount of protein they pack into each bar. If you want to grow muscles, you need protein and they are an easy way to meet your protein requirements without gym-side calculations.
An advantage that crosses all lines of the bars is consistent, enjoyable flavor. Reviewers of all kinds agree that Oh Yeah bars are among the best tasting bars on the market. Eating good-tasking bars is an advantage because eating should be a pleasant experience; it is one of life's joys.
Beyond that, eating Oh Yeah Nutrition bars that taste so good is positive because you are much more likely to eat them if they taste good. There are many products on the market that are called protein bars that actually taste bad. You are not likely to spend much money on such products nor are you likely to eat them.
The tailoring of the three product lines is another huge advantage. If you are focusing on reducing your sugar intake, you can eat the OhYeah! One bars that have only one gram of sugar. If trans-fats are something you need to avoid, enjoy Original bars that have no trans-fats at all. Victory bars are designed for people who are watching their carbohydrate intake and are both gluten free and non-GMO.
There is an Oh Yeah bar for almost every need. That is another power of Oh Yeah protein bars. They are profiles to address the prominent dietary concerns, consistently positive flavors, and all share in substantial protein delivery.
Certificates are generally issued to products that been stringently tested. There is no testing on nutritional foods. However, the gluten-free version of Oh Yeah Nutrition bars are stamped guaranteed gluten free indicating that they have been tested and found to be in fact free of gluten. Additionally, the bars with the circled letter “U” are certified Kosher.
One bodybuilder tried every protein bar out there – and there are many, many bars on the market today. He found them often so packed with crunchy bits that they scratched the inside of his mouth and were frequently poor in taste. He wanted quick protein to build muscle mass without cooking a real meal in the middle of the day or settling for super-processed quick access “foods”.
He stumbled on Oh Yeah Nutrition bars when his local supermarket began to carry them. Might as well give them a try as well as all the others. He was in for a surprise. He found the first bar to be soft and chewy, without that frequent chemically after taste of so many bars; in fact, it actually tasted good. He went about his workout as usual and then on to work.
Before he knew it, the day was over and he had entirely bypassed the usual cravings he had to fight each afternoon. He had felt so full after eating the Oh Yeah Nutrition bar that his satisfaction lasted beyond that of a regular meal.
He returned to the supermarket and purchased a week's supply of bars for a full test of the product. He actually liked each of the bars, though he found at the end of the week he liked the lemon best. The bars with more fiber were more filling, but all of the bars were satisfying, full of protein and made an excellent substitute for a meal.
Over time he became familiar with the different strengths of the various Oh Yeah Nutrition bars and has learned to use them judiciously. He keeps a supply of Good Grab bars at his desk. He uses them for snacks.
When there is a general office treat, such as for a birthday rather than succumb to the cake, he joins the group of coworkers and enjoys a Good Grab bar. Some of his coworkers have imitated him in this calorie-saving trick. Now there are a bunch of them snacking happily on Good Grab bars while the rest of the office packs on the sugars with mass-produced cake.
