The product mentions that it contains salt as an ingredient but doesn’t mention the exact amount of it on the food label. High sodium diets have been known to be the cause of high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. The recommended daily intake of salt is between 1-3 grams.
It contains edible vegetable oil- sunflower oil, certain vegetable oils contain very large amounts of biologically active fats called Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which could be harmful in excess as they damage the Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratios which are already compromised in most people. The product would have been better with oils with mono-unsaturated fats and medium chain triglycerides.
The foodnetindia rating for this product :-
foodnetindia safety rating: 8 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
This product is a safe snack for most people. The maltitol could cause gastric distress in some people but is generally harmless. As a protein supplementation product, this is safe and effective.
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating : 7 (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
This is a wholesome protein-energy supplement for most people.
Ingredients of concern in Max Protein Choco Berry Bars

  • Edible Vegetable Oil – Sunflower Oil
  • Salt

Edible Vegetable Oil- Sunflower Oil
Certain vegetable oils contain very large amounts of biologically active fats called Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which could be harmful in excess. Excess polyunsaturated fats may react with oxygen and oxidised Omega-6 fats can damage body functions and perhaps even vital structures like DNA. In addition, some people may be allergic to specific oils. Food allergies can sometimes be life threatening.
Salt
