FAQs | Fulfil Nutrition


What makes us special?

We are all about healthy indulgence. We want our bars to taste really good and get you that gorgeous chocolate hit with the benefit of 20g of protein and some great nutrition. We are high in fibre and have 100% of the RDA for 9 essential vitamins.

How is Fulfil any different to other protein bars?

Taste, texture and functionality. Fulfil is low in sugar with less than 3g in every bar.

When to enjoy Fulfil?

Fulfil is a bar with benefits: 20g of protein, low in sugar and packed with vitamins and fibre. It is a great alternative to empty-calorie snacks if you get hungry in between meals. We are also great after training for some extra protein when you need it.

Are Fulfil bars suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians?

No, our bars contain bovine gelatin so they are not suitable for vegans or vegetarians.

Are Fulfil bars safe and suitable for children?

Our bars are designed with adults in mind. The vitamins and fibre we add are in amounts recommended for adults and, although it won’t harm your children if they accidentally eat one of our bars, we do suggest that you keep them all for yourself.

Are there nuts in any other bars, apart from Peanut & Caramel?

No, all other flavours are suitable for people with peanut allergies.

Where does the protein in Fulfil come from?

The protein in Fulfil is mainly milk whey protein and in some of the bars, soy protein.

Are Fulfil bars gluten free?

Our bars do not have any gluten-containing ingredients but they are made in a facility that handles wheat and gluten so we cannot guarantee that our bars are gluten free.

What is the calorie content?

Between 185 and 208 calories per bar.

Where are Fulfil bars made?

Fulfil bars were designed and created in Ireland by Niall McGrath and Tom Gannon.  They are made in the EU.

Do you add palm oil?

We use ethically sourced palm oil in our Peanut and Caramel; Dark Chocolate and Mint and Milk Chocolate and Mint bars. None of our other bars have palm oil. We are serious about using only ethically sourced palm oil. We hold a certificate from RSPO (the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) confirming that the facility that produces our palm oil is in compliance with the criteria for sustainable production.  To see out certificate, please click here. To find out more about how RSPO is working towards a sustainable palm oil industry, please go to http://www.rspo.org.

Do you use sweeteners?

We do. It’s hard to get chocolate to taste the way we like without at least a little sweetness and we don’t want to add sugar. This is why we use some sweeteners to get the great taste we want and you enjoy.  We use stevia and erythritol in all of our bars and xylitol in some (there’s no xylitol in our Strawberry and Vanilla; Cookies and Cream or our Coconut and Chocolate bars).

Can Fulfil bars help me lose weight?

To lose weight you have to look at calories (sad but true). Although we are a little bit lower in calories than a similar sized bar of chocolate, we are not low calorie. What we do offer is more nutrition and less sugar per bite than you can get from many other indulgent treats.

Do you add any sugar?

No. The sugar in our bars comes naturally from the milk we add and there is less than ½ to 1 teaspoon of sugar per bar. This means that we have a lot less sugar than many other sweet treats and no added sugar. Our lowest sugar bar is our Dark Chocolate and Mint bar with only 1.4g of sugar per bar.

What about allergens?

The protein in Fulfil is mainly milk whey protein and in some of the bars, soy protein. So, if these are your triggers, stay clear. We also contain a little lactose. As for other allergens, check the packs as they are a little different depending on which flavour you choose. Our bars are also made in a facility that handles lots of other foods including: wheat, gluten, egg, nut, peanut and sesame seed products.

What about using Fulfil as part of my slimming club?

Check with your leader about what is best for you. Our lowest calorie bar is our Strawberry and Vanilla but you can also use the guide below:

As a general rule:

Unislim: 2.5 “Bites” per bar

Slimming World: 8-10 “Syns” per bar depending on the calories

What about additives?

We have worked hard to include only the best ingredients that we know are safe. People can feel a bit funny about E numbers and additives but it helps if you know not all E numbers and additives, are bad, many come from safe, natural sources. Lots of Vitamins have E numbers. For example, E300 is actually Vitamin C!

What about macros?

These vary slightly per bar but as a general guide one bar will give you:

20g of protein

10g of carbs

7g of fat

Check the nutrient labels on different flavours as they do vary slightly.

What vitamins do you add?

We add 100% of the RDA of nine different vitamins.

These are: Thiamine (vitamin B1), Riboflavin (vitamin B2), Niacin (vitamin B3), Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic acid, Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
