Food: Our Favorite Subject
It’s true: we love talking about our food. And we love to get questions from the people who eat it. Here are some of our favorites. If there’s something you want to know and it’s not covered here, just ask. We’ll do our best to get you an answer.
|What is CLIF Builder’s?|
CLIF Builder’s is a great tasting, high-quality protein bar crafted with an optimal blend of ingredients specifically chosen to help promote muscle growth and total body fitness. Builder’s offers a variety of protein levels to help people customize their protein intake based on the day’s activities, including CLIF Builder’s® Snack Size (10g), Clif Builder’s (20g) and CLIF Builder’s MAX™ with TriBuild™ protein blend (30g).
|What makes CLIF Builder’s different from other protein bars?|
CLIF Builder’s tastes great and is crafted with only the best ingredients to help promote muscle growth and recovery and provide lasting energy. Each bar has an optimal blend of high-quality protein, carbohydrates and fat that sets it apart from other protein bars. Unlike many other protein bars, CLIF Builder’s 10, 20 and 30 gram protein bars do not contain trans fats, partially-hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, chemically derived additives or ingredients sourced from GMOs.
|Is CLIF Builder’s a meal replacement bar?|
CLIF Builder’s bars are not meant to replace well-balanced meals. However, sometimes people don’t have time to grab a meal, and on those occasions eating a bar is better than eating nothing at all. If you need to eat a bar instead of a balanced meal, be sure to follow it up with a small snack such as yogurt, half a sandwich or a piece of fruit and drink plenty of fluids.
|Is CLIF Builder’s appropriate for children to eat?|
CLIF Builder’s is formulated with adult protein needs in mind. Parents may want to consider offering children CLIF Kid Zbar™, a tasty bar uniquely designed for the nutritional needs of growing, active children.
|Does CLIF Builder’s contain GMOs or bioengineered ingredients?|
CLIF Builder’s bars do not contain trans fats, partially-hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, chemically derived additives or ingredients sourced from GMOs.
|Is CLIF Builder’s kosher?|
CLIF Builder's is Kosher Dairy. The bars are produced on the same line as some other products that do contain dairy ingredients.

|How is CLIF Builder’s Snack Size different from CLIF Builder’s 20g?|
Both bars are great-tasting options for active people who want to include more protein in their diet. A Builder’s Snack Size bar is exactly like a regular Builder’s Bar, but with 10 grams of protein instead of 20 and fewer calories, making it a great for use on lighter workout or rest days or as a high-protein snack in between meals.
|How is CLIF Builder’s MAX different from CLIF Builder’s 10g and 20g?|
CLIF Builder’s MAX offers 30g of our TriBuild™ protein blend to help maximize your body's muscle-building potential after your toughest workouts. The blend contains whey proteins that go to work quickly to help promote muscle growth as well as casein proteins that take longer to digest, which helps reduce muscle breakdown. CLIF Builder’s 10 and 20g, each made with soy protein, help promote muscle growth and recovery without compromising taste for performance.
|When should CLIF Builder’s be eaten?|
We crafted CLIF Builder’s specifically to help active people get the most out of their workout, offering different levels of protein to help people customize protein intake based on the day’s activities. For best results, choose:
· Builder’s Snack Size (10 grams of protein) on lighter workout or rest days.
· Builder’s (20 grams of protein) during and after an everyday workout.
· Builder’s MAX (30 grams of protein) following your toughest, most intense workouts.
In general, eat a CLIF Builder’s bar with the level of protein that is right for you within 30 minutes of your workout for the most efficient and effective muscle recovery and growth.
