Sweet Without All the Sugar

Quest Protein Bars, Hero Protein Bars, Cookies and Snack Bars use sweeteners like erythritol and stevia, which help avoid blood sugar spikes and contribute either zero-calories or very few calories to our products. That means everyone, regardless of sugar restrictions, can enjoy a sweet snack with Quest.

Stevia Sweeteners

A zero-calorie sweetener derived from the plant Stevia rebaudiana. Does not metabolize in the body and does not spike blood sugar.


A zero-calorie sugar alcohol that occurs in nature in small amounts and is made through fermentation. Does not metabolize in the body and does not spike blood sugar.


A low-calorie sweetener with 1/10th the calories of table sugar. Used in Quest Hero Bars and occurs naturally in certain foods like figs and raisins.


A zero-calorie artificial sweetener and sugar substitute. Up to 600 times the sweetness of table sugar, so used in very low quantities in Quest products.

Helping Maintain Blood Sugar Levels

Diabetes is a disease that affects millions of Americans. People with diabetes should work closely with their health care providers in selecting healthy diets. Many people with diabetes will try to avoid certain snacks containing refined carbohydrates and added sugars to help mitigate the potential for spikes in blood sugar levels. Quest foods and snacks have 9g net carbs or less and 3g of sugar or less, and use either zero- calorie or low-calorie sweeteners, which supports diabetic diets by not causing large spikes in blood sugar.

Always Limiting Sugar

Every Quest Protein Bar, Cookie, Treat or Snack Bar has 2g of sugar or less, and all of the fruits in our fruity bars are real. When making your next diabetic food grocery list, start by deciding which Quest snack you’re craving.
